PROS
New style RBA deck. Bell cap is sturdy. matching drip tip. All threading is excellent. Good coil installed.
CONS
Machining!! (except for threads) Box photo--just what we need, a pic of a guy blowing a "deaths head" cloud. Machine oil; be sure to FULLY dis-assemble and clean thoroughly.
Where to begin; there were so many flaws in this I'm not sure which is the worst. 1) the cap of the RBA was SECURELY stuck on the plastic tube which is part of the bell cap. I almost ruined the barrel/body of the RBA trying to get it off initially. After putting it back together/apart several times it was obvious that the hole in the rba cap was a few thousandths too small, and was actually scoring the plastic tube. Fixed that with a dremel after removing the oring. 2)positive post/landing of the rba deck. 1st, I could see that it didn't sit flush. Removed it by unscrewing the positive pin and found nasty burrs where the threaded hole for the positive coil screw intersected with the slot that SHOULD engage the insulator.(3rd pic on item page) I say should, because there IS NO tang on the insulator TO engage with. It is flat, making it a chore to get pos. connection to set straight when re-assembling. I hit the underside burrs with a grinding stone (Dremel again) and carefully tightened it back down watching that it didn't get crooked enough to short out against the neg post. 3)The "middle" or medium airflow adjustment holes. (not shown in the FT pics, but only the high setting is a slot. Low setting is one hole, medium is two holes.)After getting LESS air through medium than through low; found that there was a tiny "cap" of metal remaining inside of the air chamber of the base where the two air holes were not completed. Thought that I would have to actually drill them, but all it took was pushing the drillbit through to bend the "caps" back into the chamber, then poke them loose with a paper clip through the top of the base (where the RBA screws in). --->> after finishing these UN-finished machining operations, it performs like a champ with the coil it came with. All threads are VERY well done and clean of burrs. Only wished I had given it a better cleaning than I did, as lots of machine oil was present, and I still got a taste of it.

PROS
Plating/color Fit and finish Screws and post hole decent.
CONS
!O-Rings! 21.7mm size; con for some Air hole/base tab alignment
I needed a 21.7 size black RDA to match the Anarchist style mod from FastTech. This was a good choice "for me". Quality: Mostly good; Cap, tube and base fit together well and match in diameter. No sharp edges. Wire holes and screws are better than the SS version which had screws so sharp that they cut the kanthal when tightened down. The three-in-a-role air holes are just slightly off; IE: when one side has one hole opened, the other has one "plus" if i'm not really precise in setting it.. When 1st side has one and a half, the other has most of two, and so on. Not sure which piece is off-the cap or the tabs on the base. For me, this is not a huge deal; I'm just not that picky for the price. For someone who runs wide open it would not matter at all. On to my second gripe, and bigger deal for me. The O-rings are absolutely NOT the correct ones for this atty. When removing for initial cleaning, I found that they were WAY smaller than the atty. Thicker cross section-smaller circumference, stretched to fit. It worked out-mostly. The one on top was smaller than the others, so being stretched further, it is thinner, allowing the top to come off easily. The lower two provide quite a tight interference fit, making adjustment of the airflow difficult. Again, it mostly works out, and I probably won't change them until they break. Bottom line: performance is fine, despite the in-attention to detail. It looks awesome on a black mod of this size.

PROS
Good build great airflow wicks feed well
CONS
resistance higher than stated
Wow! I took a chance on these working on my Protank-II, and they do so beautifully. I run VW at 6.5-8.5 watts, or around 5volts on my VV. These give a great draw compared to the regular "slotted bottom" type for my usage. A lower resistance would be nice for those using regular 3.7v systems, but if you got the power, these deliver the clouds! The first one reads 2.5ohms in the SID; I'll update if others read closer to 2.2

PROS
Quite clear color. Child resistant cap. Well labeled; all warnings and Nic content clear.
CONS
only available in 10ml size.
I'm not much of a menthol vaper;never was a menthol smoker. But this is a very pleasant mint flavor. It is good added to tobaccos, as well as mixed with fruit flavors. also like it as an after dinner "dripper". I don't stick with it for long, but it is a top-notch "refresher" when I get burnt out on my regular flavor/ADV.

PROS
Looks just like the original. Accepts all the same heads. good for rebuilding.
CONS
Won't take many 510 drip tips--too tight. OE coils took some manipulatin' to get good taste. Center post was "high".
Can't beat the deal for the price. The 1st one tasted pretty bad at first; had to thin out the top(flavor) wick and pull up on the coil (gently!) to get rid of the burnt taste. Threading is good if not great. Colors are kinda washed out as others have said. First time I ever had to raise the center post on my boxmod to get contact with center on this clearo.
