Great RDA and what you’d expect from a GOON – I had the original but somehow lost it- so this was my replacement.
The only problem I’ve found is that the resistance jumps between 0.11 and 0.19 on a 0.12 ohm dual coil build—I’ve not worked out why this is happening even after I put the RDA though a sonic cleaner (I always do this to all my new RDA/RTA/RDTA).
Apart from the resistance jumping issue the RDA is great for flavour and clouds if that’s what you’re into.
As usual great service from Vaping101
Wanted a easy build rda , so after reading reviews on the Goom 25 mm by custom vape I took the plunge & bought it from Vaping 101.co.uk at a fantastic price.
Haven’t been disappointed either, cos this build deck is so easy to build on whether it’s a single or double build . Thanks Vaping101 for keeping your prices affordable.
Great RDA. Good to see them revert to the original air holes. Very airy fully when fully open, nice and tight when closed to one hole. Can be adjusted for single coil builds too.
Should you buy?
Pros: Great clouds, great flavour. Quality O rings around the deck- sounds trivial - but it makes for a snug fit of the middle section. I hate it when the main drum of an RDA slides around when unscrewing the RDA from a mod. On some of my RDAs the O rings are so cheap and flimsy that they rip when dismantling or assembling the RDA (damn you Recurve!). No danger of that happening here.
Cons: The top cap section of the RDA could be a little tighter. On the plus side this makes for adjusting airflow easy - but there's a danger it could slip off. The O ring could perhaps have been set a little lower to make a more snug fit - or perhaps a second O ring is needed. But really, that's about the only negative. Too trivial to drop a star.
If you have the original Goon - in honesty it's not a huge leap forward, just a bigger size (ultem in the top cap to minimise heating - nice - but not a game changer). But that's fine with me. (If it Ain't broke, don't fix it). Frankly - it's just nice to have a 25mm Goon! Looks beautiful on my SQ217!
If you don't already have a Goon - just go for it! If you're not familiar with this style clamp - you may find it fiddly at first - but don't be deterred. It's not hard to build on.
Vaping 101 service excellent as usual!
This RDA is top drawer. Built for power. Flawless quality. Excellent customer service. Thanks.
