    As a 5 year employee of a leading local vapory and 1 year of management in the industry I've decided I can help using my experience and logic to contribute, I am open minded to other opinions and reasonable to debate but do have substantial knowledge in the industry. I've owned over 100 different mods and twice as many tanks and from the lax policy of my former employer have had access to all the top and mid level mods, tanks, coils and batteries. Feel free to pm me for advice or opinion based input, my experience ranged from the first sub ohm tank ever (Aspire Atlantis) to the lastest mesh RDTA tanks. From the smok alien, procolor, g-priv (and 2) wismec predator 1 and second revision, and p80, sigelei models from the 150 to the kaos and 213 along with sigelei fuchai 230 vcigo, dot mod, dot mod 2, drag, drag 2 , koopor mini, koopor plus, eleaf ikonn 220, geekvape aegis legend 200, even ROTK subego mega. Many more. Both uforce tanks, 2 fireluke tanks (original, mesh pro) several uwell tanks (crown 1-3, Vayrian) and extensive battery knowledge. I get the best deals since I help operate a shop (vtc6 for $3.70 each) it's nice to feel I may contribute personal knowledge and opinions from my vast experience.

    What a fast and warm welcome, this may just be the most welcoming forum in ever joined (excluding Corvette forums as someone who's owned 6 Corvettes I must say that is a very tight knit group) but I like the energy here more already, it feels far less competitive and more civil since their are likely far less people on here that think they're 3 out of 10 item is the best in the world LMAO!!! I love my car but need a good place to learn and maybe help others but without the D!ck measuring Z06 guys tend to do!!!

    Lmao, I use my drag, and p80 mostly (nice and small), but the aegis legend if it's rainy. When I had the dot mod I kept it in the Corvette but I'm trying to keep the miles on that car low, it's a 03" with under 65,000 miles and 572 rwhp, so I baby it on special occasions..... and on even more rare occasions I go to the track with it. Very fun hurting people with 6 figures in their cars feelings when my non Z06 looks basically stock on the outside. Lol! If you've never had a Corvette get one!!!!!!

    The drag isn't that small. I'm 6'3 and the drag was large. You must have massive hands

    Speaking for myself and many others I'm sure, VapeMaster, we of VU can only feel immensely pleased that someone of such vast experience and knowledge of the industry can come among us and share from his unlimited bounty of vape wisdom. Many of us feel lost, alone and untutored in this vape world....and the coming of a Vape Guru will only be met with sighs of relief. So, from all of the little people here, we extend to you our most profound welcome.

    I'm only 6'1" but I have unproportionately large hands and feet. Size 14 shoe and A 1.25 liter cola in my hands looks like a 20 oz! Literally I can stretch out my hands and from thumb to pinky I cover a 10" subwoofer easily, so that's fair, I suppose the drag is large for most people just not for me.

    I love getting new vape equipment but not without wide spread support and I really feel like this community can help me limit my exploratory purchasing. I'd love personal experience opinions on the Vapefly Mesh Plus RDTA (I'm trying hard to wait till after Christmas). It looks a bit like a mesh based version of my VGOD tricktank pro and that's one of my favorite RDTA tanks. Even keeps up with many mesh tanks, I really wanna know if it's better than my Digiflavor Themis *TRA. Along with input on any new devices when they come out since the shop I'm affiliated wth doesn't tend to shelf items that are too new. We got the drag 2 a few months ago and I GAVE mine away after fixing the bad solder points on the battery tray twice in one week. Still keep my og drag on me. It's survived several minutes submerged in feet of rain and mud with fully charged vtc6 batteries in it while it was on!!! Here's a pic of the drag 2 weak point, mine wasn't the only one that had this problem.

    ooooooo.....

    Just thought of a cool socio-anthropological experiment for The Forum Wars......

    Copy and paste post your initial post from this thread in another vaping forum and see if the response is as welcoming as the mates here.

    Sorry......I have weird thoughts

    and welcome to the VU

    i completely agree about the drag 2, but to be fair it took Microsoft nearly 10 years to make an operating system that was enough better than windows XP to justify upgrading, in my book that's kinda what voopoo did with the OG drag. I will say I prefer the new uforce t2 tank (comes with drag 2) over the original uforce tank (comes with og drag) just be sure if you have a uforce to be using fireluke freemax mesh coils, they bit both uforce tanks. I have a desire Mad Dog GTA (RTA) and build it with mesh even though it's not meant to and it's good with mesh, and I have a themos mesh that isn't bad at all, I've been kinda let down at the difference between mesh RDTA/RTA and traditional wire coil RDTA/RTA. It's not like mesh in a premade coil, in fact I'd say my VGOD tricktank pro is my best buildable tank and it's just set up for wire coils.

    Welcome to the forum:wave:

    I have the og drag but never got the new one.
    I guess i'm glad I didn't after hearing all of the bad feedback about it.:)

    Sound to me like you should stick with round wire then ....If it ain’t broke don’t fix it :) personally I prefer round wire to mesh any day on rebuildables ....granted pre mades have come on now with mesh they are possibly an exception to the rule

    Yea, I have an og drag and another drag 2, and until I modified the drag 2 I only used the original one. I fixed the battery door with a homemade gasket. They aren't bad just can't live up to the og model out of the box and only come in crazycolors, I wrapped mine in stealth black and it looks very nice. Now my og drag is a backup (that's a great backup lol) I basically only really use my Legend and my drag. Sometimes I need a small unit so I'll bring my p80 but I have a new gpriv and my og alien, and several other common mods in the drawer as I'm sure many others here do too!! I'd still recommend the og drag for most people. Best deal out there if the vaping experience is about clouds and flavour.

    I can't justify upgrading from the original unless you're advanced level and can get a really REALLY good deal. The vaping experience is almost identical. It feels a touch nicer in hand and the socket placement is a touch more centred but the whole FIT option is negligible imo. I got my 2nd drag 2 for free after giving my 1st drag 2 to my buddy's sister.
