A year later and the Panora MTL RTA is still bangin. I mean I guess it was always bangin, but it still holds up in 2021 among my favorite MTL RTAs. This Pandora has really surprised the crap out of me. Flavor is on point and all the finish and most of the fit is pretty stellar.
If you can deal with some slight “sponge” on the airflow ( Similar to the Reload MTL RTA if anyone has had that ) then you are in for a really stellar MTL experience. The Pandora is bangin over a year later.
Monday Grogan Build Sesh!! It’s been too long since we had a proper GROGAN build sesh so here it is. Sam the Vaping Bogan is joining us. We are going to be playing with some new stuff from Vaperz Cloud.
We both received a Valkyrie 30mm RTA 2021 edition AAAAND a Valhalla V2 RDA (mini) in the mail and they are totally getting built tonight. Might even toss some sort of Retro vape in there for fun. I am Loki… of Asgard… Odinson and Bogan dressed up as my crush evidently. Rough timestamps are also below.
Not sure what else to say really, the Dovpo Blotto Single Coil is a single-coil version of the Blotto RTA. Works great, tastes great, smooth airflow all day long.
I guess the deck can be tricky at first, but really it’s not as tricky as it looks. In this video, I might have jammed a little too much cotton into those holes, next time I’m probably going to do some fluffing first.
As I said in the video, at the end of the day, the YachtVape Eclipse RTA (by MikeVapes) is just a single coil RTA. It’s not going to do anything leaps and bounds better than some other single-coil RTAs. The flavor is on point and I overall love the style of this thing. Druga RTA, yeah it’s kinda like that, it’s also in the same family as the GEAR RTA. Slammed down flavor bangers.
My only gripe is the hollow airflow, but even that isn’t enough to keep me away from this RTA.
I know, understand and appreciate the controversy behind this RTA. With that said, the controversy ain’t my controversy and I really like this thing. The HAAR RTA is fiddly yes, intricate yes, but honestly easier thank ya think and ultimately a really stellar restricted lung IMO.
Apart from what I said in the video, I wanted to mention that this HAAR RTA does also suffer from the “COIL TURD” syndrome as I call it. An RDA for Vaping always has little speckles of liquid around the afc area, this RTA kinda does the same thing. With so many seams and parts connecting on the exterior, tiny surprise liquid drops are inevitable. Still worth it for the vape IMO. Dig this HAAR RTA, dig this HAAR RTA quite a bit.
Even if the Torch RTA had the option to do like a solid color. Or like just a white light. Even that I would be into more than this. They put a cheap ass gimmick on a really solid RTA and that really bums me out. Literally everything else on the Torch RTA is great, really truly a good vaping RTA.
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 is a Banger there is no other way to put it. I realized mine is the “limited edition” version, so the normal version may not have both decks and both chimney pieces. The vape from this is great on every level IMO. I’ve run this way open and closed down to one single hole and it’s great no matter what.
Excellent fit and finish, excellent machining. Big RTA fans and cloud-chasers this is for you.
BUILD ‘n CHILL YEAH!! Here we go, everyone! We are going to try Aliens again today. Triple 28g core / 38g alien over it, All TMNI80. Got to spend some time this weekend getting some tips and help from a few YOYOY Patrons. Feeling good about today. Assuming I’ll fail again, but really hoping I don’t. I also got a building care package from my sponsor Twisted Messes. So that might help out today too!! xxz
If we can get enough Alien wire for a coil, we are going to put it in the HAAR RTA this afternoon. Got this as a gift from Mr. Jonathan K! really excited to try this RTA out. Even if we can’t get any useable Alien wire, I’m still going to do some claptons for this RTA. Gate is open, come on in.
TwistedMesses is my new wire sponsor, so all the wire being used today is Twisted Messes NI80.
I don’t often get to review “cool” RE: Non-China stuff so much anymore, so forgive me for taking this Kronos 2S video so long. I don’t want to condense down what I said in the video but the TLDR of this is: It’s awesome, completely. The Kronos 2S does MTL really well and very tight, it also does restricted lung very well and very restricted. The construction and machining are pretty tip-top.
Even though it’s been a few years, this still feels like a Vapor Giant product to me. Crazy easy to build, mostly simple to wick. It’s a really smart design IMO.
