Goblin mini V1 - I love the little bugger. Sue me. Yes, it has a screw to fill on the bottom. Yes, it has a tiny deck.
Sense Herakles RTAs - All of them rock. The new mini is sweet. Such good flavor. The mini is what I use. A GOLD mini. SAWEET. These tanks are about the best I have ever used.
Moonshot - I like it better than the Mage. It is a beeatch to build and wick. Took me a good twenty minutes wicking it tonite. No shit. Still love it though.
Supreme/Boreas/VCMT - If you like bigger tanks all these rock. I use mine often enough. I have no real favorite among them. I just don't like the bigger sizes sitting on my small mods. Won't go in my pocket.
Serpent mini - Another little tank I love to use. Easy peasy building and wicking.
Cleito RTA - I like it but not as much as the others.

Guys - i have tested bought traded for and used a slew of tanks ... I have Limitless Pluses ... I have an Axiom ... I have a Mage ... I have the new Ultimate Fodi ... I have a Hurricane JR. I have .... a lot of RTAs. But I don't use these. The first list are in my rotation. I might only use some once every two weeks but I still use them ... the others I mentioned sit on my shelf. Get what you like. Use what you like.

When this thread hits 15,000 views I MIGHT start giving some away if I can afford the mailing costs.

Here I go again - guess I don't learn Smile - given the option of only ONE - the MAGE or the MOONSHOT - which would you choose?

The Moonshot is a bitch to build and wick BUT I like it more than the Mage. It has never leaked on me, I don't get dry hits. It takes practice and patience. The Mage is much easier to build on but I hate ... HATE the top cap. It looks like the Moonshot but it is terrible to get off when refilling. And it occasionally leaks on me. Now I'm in a minority. Most would get the Mage. However, I will repeat this for the last time ... if you are looking for a smaller RTA the Herakles mini-RTA beats the crap out of both for flavor and building and wicking.

Another day and I'll re-wick. Smile

The more I look at that Iron Maiden, the more glad I am for ordering it. So, how do you wick an RDTA such as this?

Did I mention I've lost my mind? Smile Feb or Sept....a minor variance...but fortunately everyone here was clever enough to figure it out! Smile

I'm not giving any more advice. You guys are buying all the gear I own - now I'm not special anymore.
