Nice design 2 posts deck Strong O-ring Flavour Big dense clouds Perfect Airflow Conductive
Very good, a pure competition RDA. The machining is excellent indeed. 2 posts design makes it very easy to build and way better than 3 posts. It will not take gigantic coils, this is designed for mech tubes in my opinion. The small deck helps with dense clouds and the flavour is not bad at all. You can not adjust the airflow but really you don't need to, it is perfect as it is. It is not clear coated so it will get patina, you can clean it of course, but it may be a little bit hard because of the diamond design. It looks very good on brass mechanical mods. I bought this to use it on the Raven mod but I now also put it on the Gani. The tension of the o-ring is strong, good so it is not slippery but you need a little force to take out the top cap. It is easy to drip, even though it will not take a lot of e-liquid. Even if you overdrip a little, it's not that easy for the juice to get out, just don't overdo it... It will take all my drip tips (810 size), but if you use a metallic one which is kind of long on the bottom part, it may touch the posts which is not good at all...

Excellent finish Comfortable to hold and fire Powerful design Hard Hitter (competition style) Amazing threads Copper Contacts Easy to clean Nice button tolerance Runs perfect with 18650 or 20700 batteries
CONS
Button may unscrew itself slightly over time as you use it Better to use with 24mm RDAs for looks
I am very happy with this mod. It fires 100% of the time, has never failed. The button or the tube never gets hot and I run low builds. It hits hard. It is very heavy, tons of metal! Which is good for me, it feels like a quality product and also keeps it cold and conductive. From the pictures I thought it would be big, but it's not so big, it's like a Bane mod sizewise. If you loved the Bane then this is for you. Very similar, but even better and it hits 100% of the times and it can taker larger batteries (20700) and has better (and larger) threads. The button is a pleasure to use. It has kind of a long throw, which I dislike in other mods, but here... it is 100% satisfactory. The button is strong enough to support the whole mod but at the same time it can be easily pressed. It is one of the mods that you can use without worrying about your fingers. The top cap makes it easy to use RDAs with a longer or a shorter pin. Very easy to put together. It is ideal for 24mm RDAs, as it's designed with that in mind, but you can go for 25mm if you have a long pin, and it won't look silly either. The top cap keeps the juice from not running into the battery if you have a leak from the sides. It's very easy to clean and assemble again, even with just your finger (no screwdriver). Very nice copper contacts, no arcing. The only true minus is that the button may unscrew itself with usage, but it is nothing major really, and this happens sometimes with mods of this style. Just after going through a few batteries, you may need to re-tighten it with your finger. Not a big problem! Works perfectly fine with either 18650 or 20700 batteries and it hits as hard. The delrin sleeve for the 18650 has a copper contact as well and it offers protection from a battery with a bad wrap. With 20700, as always, you have to have a good wrap. I recommend this mod if you dig it :)

Good Flavour Plenty of Air Good Screws Nice O-ring tolerance Nice Drip tip Small Size Beautiful spare screws
CONS
Not all Drip Tips fit (smaller ones will!)
Excellent RDA. Very good finish, amazing deep engravings. Top quality, worth it 100% for the price. If you are looking for a bottom airflow RDA and you are tired of the Kennedy or you find the Reload to be too tall, then this is for you. It is also able to do BF. ;) I have had zero problems using it. The airflow is smooth, I never bothered to shut it down though. It offers a perfect lung hit with just a minimal restriction to it. I have paired it with the Vader mechanical mod. It is very easy to install the coils and the screws won't fail you. Extremely simple to build and wick. As always, if you are dripping with it, be careful. It may leak if you overdo it, which is just normal. But, it is not that easy to leak and you can always suck the excess liquid straight to the coils as you vape. The flavour is very good, perhaps similar to a few other 24mm RDAs, for sure not as good as 22mm RDAs like the Soul S... but it is very satisfying, no doubt! If I have a complain, is that not all drip tips will fit but the smaller ones from other RDA's like the Sith, will do - no problem. The 810 hole is kind of small. 100% happy for what it is. :)

Unique flavor, top 3 for me Good O-rings Easy to build Easy to clean Not bad airflow options Good price Good for beginners
CONS
If liquid control is shut, it will short One time the threading got stuck Too small screws Some AFC settings make it a bit loud No true MTL option
I think this is a very good product. My number 3 favorite RTA after the Fev v3 and the Hussar. It has a unique flavour, very different from the others, not the best but still very good and enjoyable. No doubt, it is a high end atomizer. I have tried fruits, custards, tobacco, biscuits, tarts, cereal and more and all of them seem very distinct compared to other RTAs or RDAs but it is not the best in intensity or analysis of the flavour profile, yet very good. My main problem is that if you shut the liquid control and fire it, then one of the posts touch the chimney and it creates a short. This has happened to me 2 times on a mechanical mod. Not good, but of course... who vapes with a shut liquid control. Perhaps this is not a general problem, maybe bad luck on my side. Overall, I recommend this to anyone who wants to try the Skyline. I have had no leaking issues. It is easy to wick and it will vape good no matter the build. I have tried simple wire, parallel and a fused clapton. No problem at all. It is also very good for beginner coil builders, because it will easily forgive bad wicking. Actually, you don't need much wick with this, just slightly cover the wick holes from the inside and you are good to go. The airflow is interesting but I would like to have a more restricted option. Even with the smallest setting, this is a tight DL draw. MTL lovers may like it, but do not expect pure MTL here. It is in the style of airy MTL like the Kayfun 5 and the Hussar. No way more tight. I do not regret buying this, it is very good except a few problems. It is a keeper most likely. You will most probably enjoy it.
