Hi Don - I really like the look of it and your recommendation just clinched it.

RE: what's your favorite rda?
OK 9 months down the line and after a great influx of MTL RDA's the market has come to a stop because of these Pod things. Are RDA's dying because of these Pods - and tanks dying too - or is it just a blip in the evolution of vaping - like the electric guitar into folk music. I really hope it is just a blip - and a very short one too. Even new box mods are few and far between just now[Image: sad.gif][Image: thumbsdown.gif].

RE: what's your favorite rda?
I think the problem is that nearly all of them are "good enough" these days.

There was an explosion of new mods when TC first appeared. As there was when the first 100W mod appeared. Suddenly there were lots of multi-cell box mods.

Until some sort of game changer comes along, I reckon there will just be fashion changes - so the "in thing" just now is pod mods and a ton of "me too" box mods. I'd say the the three biggies have been
Regulated mods
High powered box mods
TTC - though it has a long way to go.

Vaping has always been a heavily fashion driven scene. And there are a lot of manufacturers out there now. So a ton of what someone hopes will sell will suddenly appear.

I reckon the average model life is very short, by the time you can buy it, they'll be making something else.

PaulS what do you think?

I think pods will kill pens , but as the novelty wears off box mods and tanks/rba's will make a rebound. The hobbyist needs to build and tinker, and There's those members of the skinny wallet club who build because it's the most cost efficient coil available.

RE: what's your favorite rda?
I agree. Pod people will either lose interest or turn to classic styles for the hobbyist in them. They're probably here to stay but will plateau eventually.

RE: what's your favorite rda?
I think it is harder for atties than mods. There really are only a few types.

Genesis (Most RDTAs to my eyes are variants on the Genesis theme)
RDA - the last big innovations in RDAs were squonking and the Velocity deck.
RTAs - these have got bigger and airier.
Pods - but largely in the EU these are pointless as high strength salt nic is really needed with those things. A lot of the pod type things appearing now can be rebuilt which makes them a sort of pod/RTA hybrid.

I don't generally use anything with an 810 drip tip, but I'd really love to find something that worked better than the 510 power connector, preferably with more communication with the atty. I suspect this innovation will come first with the pods/all in one systems.

Again I'd like to hear PaulS' take on this.

The market is constantly changing. But many have their fingers on what they thinkj is the pulse of the industry and honestly they are wrong. I still deal with many, many heavy mech users vaping with .09 -.1 ohm builds with 21700 hybrids. There are a slew of new quality mechs coming out constantly.

I see less of a market for traditional two battery box mods (that can do TC/Power/Bypass). Before I stopped reviewing most mods I was getting more mods rthan box mods for review. Don't get me wrong. There is a market but I find it is with newer vapers - those guys that have been around for less than two years.

Now most of my group have reverted back to smaller quality devices. And RTAs. We also use pods from time to time but I literally know personally dozens of guys using 18360s more than 18650s. But these are guys who have been around the block. We have been through the big moids, the mechs, the squonks ,,, We started with mechs than with Provaris and Reos than with 30 mm RTAs and are now back to using stealthy, s,mall devices like the bantam boxes, pawns, neo go, maybe billets, 18350 mosfet tubes ... you get it.

Me personally - I use RTAs a lot (just got a Purity and a Calix) but I really like using premade coils for MTL these days 'cause I'm lazy and getting old. But my most recent big purchase was the Noob box (18350 billet style) with a rebuildable Haku bridge. But I also git the DotAio because the Dot coils rock. At work I'll use a small tube with an RTA or my bantams.

If I was picking a trend, i would have to say that MTL is really coming into its own these days. Toodle vaping is here to stay.

RE: what's your favorite rda?
Just read through this , i'll leave bf attis to the side as i'm very much the noob on that subject .
My favorite rta is the steamcrave aromamizer V1 , of the tanks i have used it has stood agenst time and when properly wicked has been leak free .
I love the Twisted Messes2 rda nice and airy easy to build on ,my go to dripper .
The DogeX2 a realy nice rda for what it is , wire smaller than 24g is a real pia and the copper screws were trash , but for the guy rocking a hybrid mod and a 30A cell this is a kick ass atty . Huge post holes to handle beefy builds . Not at all for mtl but does serve it's purpose .
