Best starter RBA for the price!
Posted 07 July 2013 - 07:41 PM
I have been looking at them recently... and i know Uma has said its not for newer users... but i cant help myself! anything i can replace or rebuild myself... i usually do it. SO! my question is what is the best RBA to start with... but i also dont want to jump into the 200 dollar RBA's either. I have been looking at the ATA T Plus Genesis RBA nad the Vision Eternity RBA. Both are comparable in price and both have good reviews as far as i can see... i just dont want to make a hasty decision and buy a piece of junk. so if anyone has a link to something or a thread that addresses this or just an opinion i would greatly appreciate it!

Ohhhh fun!!! I can't wait til Canadian Exotic and the others see this thread! We caught a live one Martha!!!
All kidding aside, good for you, and welcome to the club.
There are so many new affordable ones coming out weekly, it's hard to keep up. Fortunately, they are affordable enough to try another if one size/style/setup doesn't quite suit you.
The two you've chosen to start with, should be just fine. Good choices!
Another one to consider is the Richman RBA, ...it's huge and heavy, but pretty and as far as I know it is easy to set up. I have one, but haven't set it up yet... because it's so huge, and heavy ... lol.
But, I'm used to the smaller ones, like my mini Did and stuff. The Richman is the size of my Roller, except heavier, lots of room for knuckles to work in. I'm sure there's a video on youtube by now, and I would suggest watching a few to see if it's for you or not.
Oh cool, here's one:
I'll let CE tell ya about the RSST
And the others about the others.

The ones you chose are great! I tossed in the Richman, because it's a lot like the AGA-T-+ but better. Lots of improvements actually. Oh, and because it's a 22mm size, meaning it looks like it was built with your avg mod in mind.. making it look like a Hybrid. Mine cost 30 bucks, shipped from Hawaii. Fast shipping too, only took a few days.
Here's the RichmanVaporssite.
I'm sure he'll be back in stock soon. Be sure to click on the "Notify me when back in stock" link, that's under the price info.
Even though it's heavy, it looks sweet on my Mods. I'll get used to the weight, I know I will. If I don't get along with it though, I'll for sure keep you in mind.

Gee thanks! I just placed an order for 4 pyrex tanks for it lol. Now I will need a Robotic arm to lift it lol. But, I'm looking forward to using MadMurdocks special mix in a glass tank. (citrus, plus bright green). (vaporwatch)

I agree, can't go wrong with the AGA-T-+ ... and there are lots of helpers to help you with their quirks or with the learning curves.
What did you do? You made me go back to their site for a price check and I ended up noticing they had pyrex tanks in...
I'm gonna have hubby drill the wickhole out in mine, it is too small.
