Thats right people another comparison...this time I took a thread out for it so everyone can easily see the review instead of digging through pages and pages of multiple threads. This is nothing but a comparison for those who want to try either RDA....not a discussion on what side your on about the clone debate! Lets get down to business! This is the Description for the Goon RDA: GOON RDA by 528 Custom Vapes The GOON RDA by the makers of the very popular Monster RTA makes building easy for new and experienced users. This RDA features a innovative bridge styled build deck where almost any sized build can fit with ease. The large 24mm diameter allows for huge builds and a deep juice well preventing leaks. The positive and negative posts are gold plated and features PEEK insulators for great conductivity and insulation. The designer of the GOON RDA, Blueeyedgoon83 is well known for their intricate and beautiful builds. The size of the post holes inside the "Bridge Clamp" design are unmatched in the industry allowing for many different and varied builds. This design features a flat surface with another bridge on top of the surface. You can simply put your built coil on the surface and screw down the upper bridge onto the surface, making a connection! Features and Specs: Dimensions: 1-1/2" x 1" (Including Drip Tip and Threads) 24mm Diameter 510 Threaded Adjustable Top Airflow Valve Wide-bore Drip Tip 1/2" Drip Tip Copper Contact Pin Gold Plated Bridge Post Gold Plated Clamps Hybrid Safe PEEK Insulators Positive and Negative Bridges are Easily Replaceable Unique Serial Number Now on to my Comparison! Packaging Difference...Well to be honest, I like the clone Packaging more...but its nice to have a nice custom embroidered bag like the Authentic comes in.. First off the Symbol (Blueeyedgoons label) is bigger and stretched out of its normal structure. The lettering and engraving isnt as deep and the font is different, more rounded and cartoonish then the Authentics. The Drip tip also is smaller (uses a normal 510) and feels more rough and cheap. The material on the clone that I received almost feels like Aluminum, but it could be a thin steel. The airflow on the Clone is much wider and the holes are not chamfered or beveled at all, this will produce a whistle at certain points of adjustment...The tolerances on the clone are not as tight as the Authentic (which I like), on my Authentic it is hard to adjust the barrle and AFC and the orings can tear apart unless they are lubed up...and even then the barrel being removed is frustrating! You can clearly see the edge of the topcap on the clone is a straight bevel, not rounded/concave bevel like the Authentic. you can see the Font difference and the drip tip hole difference also. The Difference with the Base/Decks... The Posts are similar, different, and the clone has smaller-everything it seems. The bar clamps are also not beveled. This feature on the Authentic makes it easier to insert leads without having to lift the clamps as they would jump up as soon as they are touched. The bars seem thicker though, this may help with the bending issue I was having with the Authentic after a few builds.. The Juice well seems deeper on the Authentic as the outer wall seems higher. The Authentics 510 has more threading/longer 510 pin and the screw for the Negative Post seems smaller on the Clone also, I didnt experience any wiggle or post movement issues I was getting with the Authentic though....I had to remove the Negative post screw's Oring to make the negative post more secure. The clone has more cartoonish font on the bottom and no Serial Number. Compatibility? Certain parts can fit the other but most of them will not...The bases seem to be able to be swapped but the Topcap/Barrels are a different story. You will have a small gap issue when using the Authentic Deck with the Clone Barrel as the lip stops it from going further... The clones Drip tip seems to slide in to the Authentics hole like a friction fit tip Sexy Huh? For people who wanted a Goon but couldnt afford a Authentic, Id say try the clone out and see if you'd like the Authentic....its similar and other then font/lettering/clamps sizes, and you can even use your own drip tips...using a hand file and some time you could bevel the bar clamps and have a easier time installing coils...The Goon is a great RDA for those that use large/wide coils like I do! The Clone was sourced from 3FVape ($9) and the Authentic was sourced directly from 528 Customs ($65). I hope you got something useful out of this Now get one and post some damn builds people!
