I always expect big RDAs like this to have TONS of airflow, and while this does have some plentiful airflow, I find myself wanting just a little more. Flavorful, smooth, and really really well made describes the KONG 28mm RDA from QP designs.

Kong has a solid deck with a high “Blueh” factor, the “Blueh” hole in the center works shockingly well. Digging this thing a whole hell of a lot.

The WoToFo SRPNT RDA isn’t awful by any stretch, the issue is it’s just not that awesome. Honestly, for the price even if all you did was rock a big 5mm single coil in this, it’s kinda great. Dual coils which I greatly prefer are unfortunately quite a pain in the ass.

Airflow is surprisingly smooth and just very slightly restricted IMO. Flavor is what I would expect from an RDA like this.

Let’s give a warm welcome to the one and only legendary Twisted Messes ( Kent ). He has probably got more time on this YouTube than anyone else I can think of. We have been international travel buds for years and years and years. I’m honored to be able to call Kent a close friend. Kent was one of the OG coil builders back in the day, he along with a handful of others pushed coil building to RIDICULOUS new places.

This one is a tough one for me. As I said in the video, didn’t care terribly for the OG Drop ( didn’t like the deck ) the OG Drop Solo was a bit more enjoyable. The Drop 1.5 wasn’t AMAZING ( mostly the deck complaint ) and finally, when we land at the Drop Solo 1.5 ( Single Coil RDA ) I can’t help but feel like we have seen this deck for like ….a decade now.

In my opinion, it is an outdated design that really offers no benefits except for really really bent coil leads. They could have done this 10 different ways and all of them would have been better than what we got with the Drop Solo 1.5.

On the upside the flavor can be bangin, and it looks real slick.

It’s the Digiflavor Drop 1.5 RDA and it’s honestly not too bad. I never loved the deck on the Drop, this is the same deck on the Drop 1.5 and I still don’t love it so much. It falls into the “fine” category for me. The airflow and flavor are where this thing really shine. Smooth and swooshy airflow, crispy nice flavor. If you can get a crackle in this RDA it’s pretty dreamy.

Pleasantly surprised by this little single coil flavor banger RDA. Before people go bananas, I know I didn’t mention everyones favorite The WASP Nano. Totally another less-expensive option and a solid single coil RDA. I happen to like the Claymore RDA much more than the Wasp Nano.

Build deck is on point, flavor is on point, fit and finish are quite solid ( except for the colored plastic parts ) Nothing crazy new, not re-inventing the wheel. Just a solid little single coil flavor banger. Really enjoy the Claymore RDA.

Seemingly out of nowhere Vaporesso releases the Forz RDA? I’m sorry, my mind is being blown seeing an RDA from Vaporesso in 2020 / 2021. More than that, I’m kind of shocked this is a banger of an RDA.

I know the deck isn’t completely original, but it works really very well and is as simple as it gets for building and wicking. Honeycomb airflow on the FORZ RDA feels really hyper-smooth. Borderline “spongy” feeling.

It’s certainly not the best RDA ever made, or even made this year. For the price, you are absolutely getting a banger.

You have picked probably the best build stream of all time to watch. I haven’t built a fused clapton since 2016 so today we will be asking: Can I still Build claptons?! I also have a bunch of “GIMMICK Wire” from back in the day. G-Plat, HotWires, Diamond wire. There was a few years where everyone had a different wire, and it turns out it was all Nichrome anyway. So gimmick wire in the Dead Goat today because it’s the most underrated RTA possibly of all time.

Thanks so much everyone for being here. Wanna give a special shoutout thank you to The Rising Phoenix Vapery out there in Austin TX. Great shop, great owners. If you’re in the area, you should absolutely check them out. 8015 Bandera Rd, Unit 101, San Antonio, TX 78250.

MONDAY BUILD ‘n CHILL!! WOOOO!! Alright everyone, settle down. I’m moving a little slow today but I’m stoked for today’s build ‘n Chill sesh. This video should have chapters. Decided to get into some RDAs today. These are some of what I consider to be “legendary” RDAs. RDAs that I personally put up on a bit of a pedestal. These are the “upper echelon” RDAs that I talk about. Atomizers I fell in love with.

Kennedy 24 is up today ( The 3 post version from 2015 ) I have an OG Reload RDA, I have an OG Sub-Zero from SOI, and then it’s the Recoil Rebel. Going to build em up, going to vape ’em. This should be interesting because a few of these I have not vaped in quite a long time. Interested to see how they hold up.

MONDAY BUILD’n CHILL!! WOOOO!! Alright everyone, settle down. Stoked for today’s build ‘n Chill sesh. We actually ( accidentally ) have (two) 2018 ERA vape things today. The OBS Engine V2 on loan from the Truckin Reviews collection. Everyone kinda raves about this RTA and I’ve never got to try it so I’m stoked for that.

Also giving the Jenna RDA one last joyride before I do a trade for it. I love it so hard, I just don’t squonk and I want it to be in a home where it gets more love and more use. I have the Coil Art Mage V2 RTA as well, which is another RTA that I never got to try. Then lastly… ohhhhh mystery RDA… It’s the MGNT V1.5 from Shado Vapor circa 2018.
