Kraken vs. RSST
Which one do you think is better between this kraken or an authentic smoktech rsst? Does one hit harder? Is there a quality difference?

My Kraken clone is on its way, I cant tell you the difference on how they vape yet. But I can tell you something about the built as per description of the kraken.

I have an RSST as well, RSST is very easy to build and you have lesser chances of grounds because the wick hole is isolated. The tank is not glass, some juices can break it. The stock air hole is small, is is a tight draw, if you're vaping at low ohms, it's best to drill the hole out so you can have the best of it. Also the RSST is very flexible, you're not gonna have some problems in making it sit flush on a mod that doesn't have adjustable pin, the pole of RSST is adjustable itself.

The kraken as per description looks good, it has an AFC (air flow control), no need for drilling to adjust the draw, you can go dual as it has 2 wick holes. Tank is made of glass, no worries about juice to fill.

All that donn wrote is true.

Also the RSST top cap comes lose quite easily and it leaks from the deck down the centre post. The Kraken air chamber looks to be smaller and should give more flavour and warmth.

I think you'll find the new RSST tanks are made from Polypropylene rather than Polycarbonate, which is rugged and unusually resistant to many chemical solvents, bases and acids. I doubt you'll find a juice that will damage them.
I have a legit RSST and a FT Kraken.
The RSST needed the air hole drilled out and I agree the top cap can come off easily, but I've had no issues regarding leaking (I do keep the deck pretty clean though).
The Kraken on the other hand currently does leak for me. I've only had the Kraken for a couple of days so I need to spend more time with it to find out why.
Out of the box, the RSST wins for useability, it vapes well for a single coil.
The Kraken wins for pure sexiness and I am very impressed with the performance of it. It vapes like a champ. I just need to work out where/why it is leaking.

*Update* I fixed the leaking. Additional review added.

@ninac... If this is your 1st genesis, then RSST. Much easier to build on. As mentioned; isolated wick hole helps with "hot spots" and spring on positive post to secure wire is a nice feature. Plastic tank is a great design and it won't be broken when you get it in the mail. Every genesis owner should have one and/or probably has had one. RSST is a good go to genny that is always reliable and the only tinkering needed would be to drill out the air bigger (top cap is thin, so not to difficult). I own 2 by the way.

The Kraken is not airtight enough and there's air infiltration from everywhere. On the other hand, the RSST has a way too small stock airhole. The RSST is also far superior concerning the ease of build. Spring loaded positive post and insulated wick hole are a huge plus when it comes to coil building.

That being said I don't like Genesis style atomizer I'd rather get a Kayfun, Taifun or Aqua instead but if you're dead set on Genesis the RSST is light, easy to build and perform nicely to me after enlarging the air hole.

...my RSST is on the way but the kraken is total dynamite!! Best airflow control of any atomizer I've used ;) Personally, I found the build really easy.

Get both :)
