  1. Hey all Hope this lands in right forum but I’m struggling to find a super large 810 fir my DeathTrap 30mm RDA. The one it ships with is perfect but had the switch stick (twice now :/ ) on my Cthulhu series mech and burn out and completely melt the driptip (and my second biggest one from the Goon 1.5) Original driptip probably around 24mm overall and anything smaller just looks kinda funny and doesn’t feel right. Cheers everyone. [emoji41][emoji100][emoji111]️
  2. You really are an evil genius Walt. Good to seem still using that wicked skull fruit for SOME good (along with all the evil too ya dirtbag [emoji6] )
  3. Righto guys always been a dessert fan but a few juices if late have me turned around (Tortoise blood, pinkman by VV and Bathtub juice - Summer Fruits) Hit me up with your favourite (simplish) fruit blends [emoji41][emoji100][emoji111]️
  4. First of all- check out my new toy... oooh so purdy. So- few builds on it since I got it earlier in the week. Fused claptons, meh, round wire, parallel, meh. Got a set of my fav aliens coming early next week ( .13 ohm pair Ni80 - sooo good!). Anyways, in the meantime I found a set of Geekvape Staggered Stapled Fused Claptons- they smash it out once they ramp up but the year it takes to get there is also meh (Single 18650- got. Couple of 20700s coming with the Aliens too...) So- Was thinking of poppin coils out, lose half a leg each side, space them out a bit and parallel some round n80 in between to help with ramp up. But best I got on hand is 26g n80. Worth it? Reckon it will help ramp up time? Plus being 26g maybe I should even consider twisting a pair or is it like adding more metal kinda defeating the purpose? Last pair of them I got too so don’t want to go clipping a leg etc if it won’t help. What do ya reckon? Cheers [emoji41][emoji100][emoji111]️
  5. Pretty pleased with today’s chapter of my vape chronicles. Woke to one of my 3 incoming Vapemails, mixed up a few brews, re-wicked all my rdas and done a much overdue cleanse of the cloud cupboard. $11 worth of stackable storage to sort out my juices into heavy rotation, weekly swap outs and desperate measures and clean up all my concentrates. Keep it cloudy all you cool cats [emoji41][emoji100][emoji111]️
  6. Right guys- got my bday coming up Monday and have a bit of cash to throw around. Looking at RDA’s - either the recoil rebel, riot anarchist or goon. Which one? I mainly squonk but also have a couple of hybrids that get a fair run at home. Recommendations? Cheers.
  7. Yeah it is. My bad. Still arcs up a lot quicker than ss and Kanthal
  8. Sorry bit late to reply on this thread but I’m all for fused claptons over single cores. Ni80 has very little ramp up time and I throw these on my mechs happily (just check resistances first as nickel ohms out pretty low). I don’t really bother with SS or Kanthal claptons on single battery mechs as I’m not huge on the ramp up time but will happily throw the SS in a VW mod as I can add preheat to get them up to temp quicker. As Walt says it’s all personal preference. Play and see what your happy with but just check resistance if your using mechs.
  9. Happy New Year Walt. And thank you- you’ve fielded my qs from early on, improved my fav recipe and steered me on a good path too. And congrats on the year without cancer sticks mate. I’m at about 8 months now and probably wouldn’t have done it without blokes like yourself (and the blokettes of course) on forums like this answering my qs helping me along the way too.
  10. Lol no cause for alarm- I’m the dirtdog. Just didn’t want to give you all the credit. I give all my juices kinda inappropriate names like smurf ****, blue balls etc. was thinking of starting a line called Juice Knuckle and names all flavours something ****** up. Don’t worry u can still be a dirt Dog too if you want lol. Dirt Dog for liiiiife!!
  11. My last mix of it had a splash of custard too for body - helped round it out nicely imo http://e-liquid-recipes.com/recipe/1987871/Dirt+Dog+Walt%25E2%2580%2599s+Apple+Pie
  12. Nice one bro. Here’s a little hand check from a few weeks ago with my little betsie in the background. Was teaching my 9 yr old Stepson how to cook briskets and pork ribs. He done well [emoji106]
  13. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171124/b7611eaabdc7064e75fed450c6db15a4.jpg[ Righteo- I'm done playing for the night. Put a few different builds thru both attys. Leaving to for now with just straight 26g 9 wrap Dual on the Athena RTA (3mm ID - meh- tried a couple different ideas on it but I usually need time to learn to build on a new RDA anyways. Can't just look at it ypet and figure what will work best. Tried a slightly larger single coil Ni80 fused claptons in the dead rabbit at first but I think running a single straight down the guts puts it too far away the airflow. Went dual spaced and it pumps pretty good Oh- quick one- my coilmaster ohm reader seems to be reading around 0.10 above both of my mods (both running Arctic Fox firmware). And ideas? Cheers Both final resting builds came in between .24 - .26 ohm. Kinda happy with that [emoji2][emoji106] And yeah I know there's a couple of wonky wraps on that back fused clapton - it is 3am over here give me a break lol
  14. Cheers man that's pretty much what I was asking for- ideas not a tutorial. I generally run 316l fused claptons on my regulated mods but they usually hit about .18 area - might just start off with some 24g Kanthal parallels or even twisted pair for duals in the Athena and a single ni80 fused clapton in the dead rabbit. Confident the parallels will hit around the .28- .3 mark and the single fused around .3 Anyways my vape mail didn't hit me today so got another day to think it over :/ Cheers lads
  15. Hey guys- decided it's time to look into the squonk and mech world - so I have a Geekvape Athena arriving later today- what should my first build be? Not really overly phased by blowing huge clouds (seems like somewhat of a pissing contest tbh) more after flavour. It comes with the Athena RDA and although the build deck would allow me to fit a single coil in the guts the airflow would be off as you can't rotate it away from the coils (or where it thinks the coils should be). Also have a Dead Rabbit I can load up a bigger single coil if I want to (have some pre made SS and N80 fused clapton wire) if that's going to be my best bet... And yeah- reason it's taken me so long to check it out is they do scare the **** out of me. So safety paramount. Will aim my build around the .25+ mark as I have a couple of different batteries I want to put thru it. I've bought one (d'oh thought I had ordered 2 but seems not...) VTC5A as from what I've gathered it seems to be one of the safer batteries around but also have a few 25r's that I might have to swap out here and there while my lonely Sony is on charge... Until she gets a couple of friends that is Any ideas guys? Sorry for such a long post but baby steps all the way with this Betsie. [emoji106]
