top fill leaks?
does it leak after top filling or is it an easy builder and user?

It doesn't leak if properly build but it has the tiniest allen screws i ever seen on a rta. So ease of building, not really.

Do the build issues bypass the flavour? Is it worth it over a dvarw or beserker mini?

No, dvarw is way better.

No leaking and it's pretty hard to mess up the wicking. I prefer the GT4 or GT4S over the Dvarw but it depends on your vaping style and whether you prefer top fill or bottom fill, simple round wire coil or like to sometimes run an exotic coil. The GT4 can do both while the Dvarw can only use round wire or small clapton mtl coils.

Don't forget to use your juice control. If a GT is going to leak, it's on refill screwing that long threaded top cap down. After refilling , wait a couple seconds to settle, then open it back up.

I'm strongly in the GT camp. Dvarw has far fewer options altogether. Both are solid choices

Can anyone tell me what size allen key or torque screw to use because the allen key they provide doesnt fit

If I remember correctly you need a 1.5mm or 2mm allen key.

As an aside, a lesson I learned a long time ago, was to have a decent dedicated set of Allen keys/drivers. The ones supplied with attys (even the good ones) are, more often than not, really naff, and strip after the first use. It saves a lot of fiddling around in the long run. :-)

It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

I have the gt4, dvarw v2 and dvarw dl and the v2 is imo the best. I am a 0.2 ohm builder but last build i made in the v2 was 1 ohm at around 20w using 28 awg kanthal and it was very good. With the largest airhole, i got clouds, smooth airflow and very good flavor.
We can't agree on everything.
