    How are you liking your boost? I won one from a contest on here and I think it’s okay. I wish you could fill it with more juice

    I am very surprised with it's performance, great flavor and clouds with a decent battery. Can't wait to see how it performs with the RBS tank that I don't have yet. It's so feather light I forget it's in my pocket sometimes.

    Yes! I agree with you on everything you said! I also wish the pod wasn’t so dark because when I fill it, I have to hold it up to the light so I don’t overfill.

    Well I got my 2 regulars for work (Aegis Legend and VV Jackaroo) and I decided on a little sqonking today too so I brought along my Eleaf Pico Squeeze topped with a BPI Yellow Jacket RDA.[​IMG]

    I'm really liking the Unicorn stuff. I need a brass 24mm Unicorn RDA now.

    I have a titanium flip. Maybe the most beautiful tube I have. I gotta be honest though. It is by far also the worst performing one I have. At least in mine, the spring is horrible. Instant blistering hot button and non serviceable. At least not easily. Hopefully yours is better.

    I honestly stopped using mine for now as well due to hot firing button. Really wish it could be taken apart.

    Wow, I must have got lucky. I've had no issues with mine whatsoever.
    I ordered some 18500 batteries for that stealth look :)
    They work great but 20 amp 1100mAh battery life is not so great.

    It's the spring. You can tell by how light the throw is how light the spring is. At least on mine, which I know is authentic and was quite expensive new. If you could JUST replace that spring.

    Ya, unicorn stuff is nice but seeing as AReLiquid sent me an email this morning basically saying, well that's the way they come now. I'm done with them. Really? That's it. Nothing about the missing pieces to the RDA's I got either? F you guys. How about you update your website to reflect the changes seeing as you said to me that's the way they have been for awhile now. Assholes. I was planning on possibly getting a few more RDA's but nope, not now.

    I'm genuinely happy for you. Seriously.
    I wish I could use mine. I just stuck a .15 build on it with a fresh 20S, cap off and the button started getting warm at the same time I started to see vapor from the coils. Which wasn't very quickly.

    I feel bad this purchase went like this for you Deb. :(
    Honestly, I wasn't real big on either version of the switch in the Vert. I'm not putting it down, it's just that I watch videos of this kinda stuff and things just hit me certain ways.

    Same with the Brizo. I was about to buy one used from a guy on Reddit a while back and after seeing the breakdown of the switch, I passed. I'm probably wrong half the time.

    I understand the principle of the thing, but these are great RDAs dirt cheap. Might still be worth taking advantage.

    Speaking of the principle of the thing, when SOI had that insane clearance sale several months back, that's what turned me away there. Call it a mental thing, I cannot do non-user-servicable switches.

    It's not that I think people are being dishonest, but "trust me. It'll never need maintenance" doesn't work for me. I do NOT trust that it will NEVER need maintenance and I want to be able to get in there easily.

    Ya, and he never even bothered to address the issue of the missing pieces for the RDA. Fine, I can probably find a squonk pin but it is simply not the point. Terrible CS and they wont ever get another dime form me. The guy on Face book he says he will get back with me? I'm starting to think they are one in the same and it's just a run around. Screw them all.

    Yes they are but I won't ever buy from them again. Period. Did yours come with a chuff cap like it says they do in the description? I just sent my final message to the guy on Facebook showing him the description on the website and how I got none of that. All I got was the RDA and a pink drip tip. I want them to know I am not going to let this go as it's crappy CS and it's wrong. Not to mention false advertising. Now I feel like a total bitch too as they are pretty cheap, but damn it's the point of it all and if AR had not been so nonchalant in his email to me I most likely would not have said another thing.

    On their website. ya, no chuff cap ( unless this is the extra drip tip ) and no squonk pins or extra screws:


    Featuring a two post design that is replaceable. You can restrict airflow down to one vent for a single coil setup or open it wide for competition style vape. Each RDA comes with its own accessory bag featuring 4 sets of replacement screws, two O-rings, and a plastic chuff cap. Already being dubbed as the Goon Killer get yours today!

    Features

    • 25mm
    • Single coil setup
    • Multi-coil setup
    • 12 adjustable 2mm airflow holes
    • Replaceable posts
    • Replaceable chuff cap
    • Deep 8mm juice well
    • Squonk ready

    Well, this is certainly not true. My 24mm did come with the accessory bag with all the stuff, including a squonk pin, as did the Axial, but not with a chuff cap. I think that was always supposed to be a separate purchase, so that shouldn't be listed as included.

    Speaking of which, I did order an ultem chuff cap for the 24, but they sent me one for the 25. Which is ok now because I have the 3 in 1 with the 25 coming.

    Maybe they're having a huge falling out or are stressed over some business trouble and aren't being attentive to their customers. OR, maybe they just don't care. Anyway, it's a bummer when you're all excited about something and it doesn't work out that way.

    Here is the reply from the guy on facebook and come on, How about you stop false advertising. Christ, I can see they aren't going to make this right and ya, I'm being a nit picky bitch here but again if the one guys attitude this morning had not been so fng flipant I would be pressing this now. Nothing pisses me off more than a company that is misleading people.


    It doesn’t come with a chuff cap I’m not sure why it says that
    It comes with 2 drip tips
    And screws and orings
    The chuff cap was an additional accessory that no one ever bought haha
    Azelyah
    Here is what I got
    [​IMG]
    I would have them change description but to be honest it won’t be made again , it’s being sold at half my cost to manufacture it right now

    Every time I pick up that vert mod now I just get more and more pissed off over the whole thing, so even using it as it is, causes me grief and aggravation as it is a constant reminder now that it's a company that has given me the run around. I don't give a flip if the RDA is only $5 or $8 or whatever the hell it is. It is simply the whole point of it to me now. I know that not everyone will see it that way and some will say I am being a total pain in the ass. Fine by me. I'm sticking to my guns here. I don't mean that directed to you @gsmit1 :) They are very nice RDA's no denying that at all.

    To me, no matter what issues a company is going through, take care of your customers. Whether they spend $1000.00, $100.00, or $10.00

    Almost the same experience I had the last time I ordered from Florida Vape Supply. I'd order 2 more Zion RDAs and received just the RDA's in small zip bags. No factory packaging, no spares bag, and no squonk pins. Called them. I was told that they were the last ones they had and they would "look for the squonk pins and two call them back next week. Well next week came. I called and was told they were still looking and to call back the next week. Fuck that shit. I gave up. Thankfully the VU army came through and @nadalama sent me some squonk pins. Good prices or not I won;t order from them again. The least they could have done is let me know that they weren't complete before shipping.

    Just for future reference, THESE brass sqounk pins for the og Goon fit the Unicorn RDA perfectly. (24mm anyway, though there shouldn't be a difference with the 25 or 26 I wouldn't think) I just now tried one and it screws in flawlessly, protrudes just right for hybrid safety and also protrudes into the deck about a mil or 2. I even test fired it.

    EDIT: OR, any sqounk pin that fits the og Goon obviously.

    well, thank you, awesome as always. lets wait and see if they do infact send it to me. heck, I may very well have one. I am hoping they send the whole spare baggie as it has different screws and I loathe the screws that come on it :)
