Gorgeous, Easy to use, On/off switch for peace of mind, Solid and well built, Arrow RDTA is easy to fill and performs well,
CONS
No USB port to update the firmware, Heavy, Arrow gets hot easily on large builds, Cross-head screws in the posts - why?
As soon as I saw the Tesla Nano 120W mod list I knew I had to have it, it's just so pretty. Getting the kit with an interesting new RDTA - the Arrow, seemed like a good deal. I have been using the kit for over a week now and have had no problems. The mod, while heavy (a little heavier than my X-Cube 2), feels extremely solid and well built and feels good in the hand. The menu system is easy to use and all the standard features are present (VW mode, TC mode, memory function). Performance-wise it's neither special nor shabby but does the job more than adequately. Besides its looks the only other feature that makes it stand out is the on/off switch. I've had mods in my pocket somehow manage to turn themselves on and then fire, a physical on/off switch does a great deal to eliminate the possibility of this happening and gives great peace of mind. The Arrow RDTA follows a similar vein to the mod - it performs no better or worse than similar cotton gennies but its filling method is interesting. The top half of the atty, including the deck, cap and drip tip, completely unscrews from the tank leaving the top of the tank wide open and ready to fill. It's not an easy on-the-go way of topping up but it does eliminate the possibility of getting air-locks when filling as I have had when filling up my Ijoy Combo. The deck is a little smaller than other RDTA's like the Combo or Limitless so it can heat up quite easily with larger builds, but it has good airflow and flavour. One admittedly small, (and easily remedied), issue is that they've used cross head screws in the post terminals. It may be just me but I much prefer hex screws. All in all the kit as a whole works well and looks lovely.

PROS
RBA piece works OK, (in side airflow setup with chuff cap)
CONS
Top airflow doesn't work in dual coil mode, Unstable connection through tank, Awkward to fill, Some pieces too loose due to single o-ring fitting.
I was looking forward to this RDTA, I have a Fountain V2 which is similar in concept (squonk atty) and the Skyfall looks better and promised more airflow options. In use however this RDTA was a massive disappointment. There are two major flaws, firstly getting a solid and stable connection through the centre pin is a real hassle. In order to get a halfway decent connection a you have to loosen a nut located on the top of the tank's 510 connection. For me when ever the RDA piece was then screwed on to the tank it screwed the nut back the other way and made the connection unstable or the resistance too high. If I had any hair I would have torn it out trying to get a stable resistance reading on this atomiser. I tried using a Velocity RDA with a bottom feed screw in place of the Skyfall RDA but had no better luck. When, hours later I had actually managed to get a resistance reading that seemed solid I then couldn't get the thing to squonk correctly, just make some flatulence-like noises but not actually squirt up some juice. When I worked it upside down for a few pumps it would squonk subsequently for 1-3 pumps but then, again, do nothing. After that I tried to check the tank and unscrewed the RDA from the base, when I screwed it back on lo and behold the resistance reading was again unstable and the damn thing wouldn't fire. The second flaw was the top airflow setup, in particular the cap which allows top airflow. It should have three cutouts each at 90 degrees to each other around the rim. These line up with the holes in the sleeve when it is fitted with the holes at the top and allow you to choose either single or dual coil airflow. However the cutouts on the cap I received are at about 60degrees to each other so the most you can get is one side and a tiny amount of the other. The other issue with that cap is that the central chimney projects down deep into the chamber and can interfere with some builds or create a gurgling noise when the atty is juiced up. I have been using the RDA part on it's own for a few days and it works well enough, albeit with the side airflow and wide bore chuff cap only. It does seem a little loose at times as the chuff cap is only held in place by a single o-ring and has come off several times while I've been vaping. The flavor and cloud production are good but I bought this thing as an RDTA and at which it has been unreliable, both in firing and squonking.

Fits authentic Crius tank, Velocity deck - easier coil setup.
I was given an authentic OBS Crius with the original 3-post deck which worked well enough but I wanted the version with the 2-post velocity deck. This replacement base fits the authentic upper hardware perfectly and is indistinguishable from the original base when fully built up. The 2 post setup is much easier than the 3 post version although the wire holes are perhaps a little small. I think it also gives slightly more airflow than the 3 post version because of the gap between the posts. All in all a good upgrade for those who got the first version of the Crius.

PROS
Great airflow, Huge juice channels, Access to the deck without draining the tank, Good juice capacity,
CONS
Juice control ring too tight
Since I received the Goliath it has quickly become my first choice of tank atomiser, besting both my Goblin and Cthulu. It's well built and vapes like a champ. The ability to access the deck without having to drain is brilliant. The only negatives I could give it is that the juice control ring is nigh-on impossible to move when the whole thing is screwed together and that the coil terminals on the deck are a little wonky. Neither affect me badly so far and I couldn't be more pleased with the Goliath.

PROS
Refills easier than the Goblin Nice big juice channels Great airflow Good flavour and clouds Clean lines and cool logo - looks good
CONS
Slightly misaligned holes on the positive post Tiny allan key tightened post screws
I already have both authentic and a cloned Goblins which perform great, the Cthulu improves on the Goblin design in small but significant ways. The juice channels are deeper so it's easier to wick properly and the top section screws apart in such a way that you can refill it from the top (just remember to close off the air intakes). The only criticism I have is that the two holes on the positive post are slightly misaligned - one's higher than the other. Also the post screws are allan key type grub screws with a tiny tiny allan key.
