Meh....
First of all....
Got too much airflow.
The design is not perfect, if you want to build a single coil the you should expect a LOT of airflow...
Second- dual coils.
Also got too much airflow, you cannot close the airflow more then half.

And the third - post deck.
One blue screw just snap on me when I did try to tight down one deck.

Is good that I got spare screws in the package but they are not blue.

Overall - is ok but are better alternatives there.

It was a fail from the minute it was released.

But of course all the US YouTube vape reviewers were giving it high praise because they are paid shills and all thought and claimed it was Made In USA.

Even when it was pointed out to some of them that it is made in China and you cannot adjust the airflow for true single coil vaping they either blocked you from the chat, deleted your comments or stupidly said "who vapes a Goon in single coil mode anyway?".

The problem with Goon 1.5 is that they included the stupid third "single coil" air slit to satisfy the whiney reviewers who demanded it in any "serious" RDA. If they had left it out, the thing would be adjustable to less than 50% airflow for dual-coil - the only thing you should be doing with such a huge open chamber anyway.

In case you are talking to me :
A - only Kanthal and SS316L, sorry but no Nikel for me.
B - Been there, done that, 0.15-0.2 Ohm.
C - I did, squonk at 60-70w, huge clouds but still too much airflow.

No need to say thanks....

Im greating great flavor with the 4 barrels under that coil.

Both previous Goons have been over hyped junk - no surprise this is fail also.

Yeah the clamps are a "nice" idea that have been surpassed by better rda's such as by SOI's SubZeroX (SZX) Competition RDA - just wish there were some friggin clones (from easy to access online stores I trust) or better still a new design copying the post style but in a better looking, less fussy rda as the SZX is best suited with the SubZero X mech mod.

move over goon - you have nothing to offer

And my crazy fix for the airflow and the flavor.
I did a single coil build, 0.23 Ohm, at 3.5 mm diameter.
On the other side I did filled up the place with a LOT of cotton,
like this the airflow is blocked and I can use it as a single coil device.

Now is working like a beast, a cloud one, with a LOT of flavor....
I've got restricted airflow, as I like and the flavor is on point.
If you got one you should try, you got nothing to lose, except the time and the cotton.
Yes I know, it's not a fix for a shitty design but at least you can experiment the single coil
with a Goon and believe me... is better than a dual coil with this Goon 1.5

Have fun!
