    It was Vaping with Vic on Youtube that made that Custard comparison. I dont know if my tasters are as sophisticated as his :D I watched both of his vids as you mentioned comparing the Zesthia with the Kylin Mini & wondered how in the heck can you taste the smidge of custard being better in the Kylin Mini. He also noted that the Zesthia is his pick for all around flavors. Great for fruits etc.

    I hope you are having a fun time at the show! There must be lots of eye candy there, no way could I go to a show, it would be dangerous to my wallet!

    LOL- he is gifted!
    That's why he is a big time reviewer! LOL!
    I am like you, my palate isn't as sophisticated to pick out all the nuances of juices. I am just happy when a tank doesn't leak, or give me dry hits, has an easy deck and not so finicky wicking!

    Yes, it was. Thank you. I couldn't remember. I had the same thought watching the vids about the custards. I won't test that since I don't do custards and if I did, I wouldn't vape them at 80 watts or whatever he referred to. I did find the video interesting and useful.

    Yes the vid was useful it just kinda baffles me as this is not the first time that Vic has noted certain atties are more geared towards certain flavors :teehee: if that’s the case, my tasters are definitely broken :D

    Good to know! I too had a replacement deck sent, by the time I got it I moved on and it's been shelved ever since.

    I heard the wicking and loudness are the only two real cons, wicking being you have to cut the lengths pretty spot on. How has that fared for you?

    They didn't have it there, it was no where to be found, Asmodus was mia.

    I will go ahead and text DJ your birthday wish. Sorry I didn't see this earlier but I am sure he is going to be happy to hear that from you.

    My wallet has cobwebs in it now, need to start saving for the next show....Lol. It is so much fun though and a lot of free juice samples that it offsets the costs.

    I haven't experienced loud airflow like the VV Phobia RDA I received in the same package. Probably has to do with your build, none of my builds came out noisy.

    The wicking can be a little tricky since it a wide but shallow wick slots. I found it best to really thin out my tails and make sure the wicks didn't extend down past the threads. It is more forgiving if you don't chain vape like I do. I can take 6 to 8 draws in a row easily and if the wicking isn't right end up with dry hits. After you get the hang of it wicking is a breeze though.

    I'll have to give it a go and see if VV has redeemed themselves.

    That’s too bad you didn’t get your Zesthia, but I’m sure you’ll find one. Thanks for relaying my message :blowkiss:

    It is for sure on my list, will probably order one once my backlog gets a little more settled. I would love to hear your thoughts on the Zesthia, I really trust your opinion.

    DJ said thank you and said wow, what a sweetheart. Happy Birthday to you as well, I hope you had a great day!

    Give me a few more days with the Zesthia & I’ll definitely let you know my thoughts. I’m using their included coil wicked with rayon. It’s definitely well made & nice smooth airflow. As for taste, i still have a cold so maybe my tasters are a bit off or my choice of juice?

    Thanks for relaying my message :blowkiss: thank you for your birthday wishes :inlove:

    I ordered the Vandy Vape Pyro RDTA- I really love my Ample Pixys RDTAs( I have 3) and have been looking for another type of RDTA when the Pyro Caught my eye, Thanks to this Vandy Vapes review!
    This is a postless either single or dual coil deck and no leaking, has been getting great reviews so I thought why not! I ordered from Vapor Range and will have it on Thursday! I ordered the Pyro in the rainbow and looking forward in trying the Vandy Vape Pyro RDTA!

    I am interested to know what you think of the Zesthia- our friend @PJReid loves hers and it looks so awesome paired with the V2 Gold Relic!
    I am getting leery of bottom air flow RTAs- my beloved OBS Crius ll has developed a small leak thru the 510 pin- sporadic but enough to have me take it all apart, change the orings, wick heavier, try to tighten down anything I could and still leaks- UGH! My mods are too expensive to have eliquid pool in the 510, so it is benched for now until I get more time to mess with it!
    That is why I love my Ample Pixy RDTAs- no leaking, no messy tank to take apart to rewick and dry burn or change out the coils and the flavor and vape is awesome! Also why I went with the Vandy Vape Pyro, hoping I love the Pyro as much as the Pixy!

    I’ll definitely let you know as well as @mjag ;)
    PJReids pic with her Gold Relic & her love of the Zesthia is what made me get mine. Simply stunning! So sorry to hear about your Crius II :( I think it’s more to do with the press fit deck then the fact that it is bottom airflow. I wish manufacturers would stop with the press fit. That’s what was wrong with the Merlin Rta also. It’s been a few months with your Crius II, but with the press fit decks eventually they all seep/leak. Which is why for a while I avoided them & went with Steamcrave as their decks aren’t press fit.

    Yes I remember you saying you loved your Pixy’s. The only reason I didn’t get it is because I prefer single coil decks. They are so cute!

    I prefer single coil decks too, but the Pixy dual coil deck is easy peasy and never gets hot either- I bought it because it was cute, but loved everything about it enough to get the black and SS, plus the HG Xmas sale, these RDTAs were about $13.00 each the 1st yellow was a flash sale at HG for $12.00. I almost didn't buy the Pixy either because of the dual coil deck, but glad I tried it - my favorite tanks!

    Thank goodness that Crius ll was a contest win! I have been using it since September- @PJReid has quite a few of the Crius ll and no problems with hers yet! That is such a shame- such a beautiful tank that vapes great! Another reason why I love RDTAs, no press fit!

    I am convinced that the Crius II was released before it was ready for prime time. @SnapDragon NY won hers and it was one of the early shipments. My first one, bought on presale, is problematic. I benched it to a place in my vape drawer with a sticker on the box to remind me why I am not using it. All of the others were bought later and have been perfect. I even let my son have one after he used my Therion for a week with a rainbow Crius II and liked it so much more than the OBS Engine Nano he had been using. He is not careful with the tank and hasn't had any leaks. *fingers crossed*

    @mjag and @SnapDragon NY I am happy to report the flavor on my Asmodus Zesthia is where it should be!

    :hearts::hearts::hearts:
    Thanks to @PJReid confirming that indeed contrary to what “Vaping with Vic” suggested the coil needs to be higher up. I had the coil lower with the side airflows hitting the bottom 1/3 of the coil and I just didn’t get the KA-POW flavor that @PJReid was getting. So I watched a few more vids available now & it wasn’t easy as most reviewers dont highlight/show coil height when building. Then I asked if PJReid wouldn’t mind posting a pic of her build for height comparison & she so kindly did :bunny:
    The top of the coil now lines up with the top of the clamp where the screws are. And the flavor now is fantastic!

    My VV Kylin Mini RTA should’ve arrived today, but alas USPS is doing their fine work again :tantrum: they lost it! I spoke with I think the owner of Loadupvape.com & he said “POOF like magic its gone”! He stated he will sent out another one to me yesterday afternoon & will send me a tracking # when he gets it. He seemed like a real nice guy, we’ll see. I’m waiting...

    So much for ordering from the USA instead of waiting for China :gaah:

    I am glad that @PJReid helped you out with the coil placement- I did the same with the Zeus- I placed the coil much higher and I get really good flavor .

    My Vandy Vapes Pyro is in town and out for delivery today! Yea ...
    It really sucks that USPS lost your VV Kylin! Boooo !
    You are really lucky that Loadupvape is a good vendor and is sending you another right away instead of the wait and see vendor!
    I had to do my 1st charge back yesterday, really disappointed that I had to do that- 10 days with no shipping # or any communication from the vendor( I called, messaged FB, customer service and PM on the forum- they charged my card though! Almost 3 years of online ordering and this is the 1st US vendor that stiffed me!

    YaY!!!! Vapemail that comes when expected is always a plus!!!! Let me know how you like the VV Pyro rdta!

    Yes, I am lucky I guess, we’ll see. Loadupvape, Michael Young sent me the email yesterday around 3pm our time, they’re in CA. He said he would ship out yesterday & send me a tracking # as soon as he had one but I haven’t received one yet.

    So sorry that a USA vendor stiffed you :gaah: that really annoys the cr*p out of me. We pay more $ usually for the supposedly better customer service & faster receipt of products. And it is highly disappointing. :cuss2: Do share the vendor that did that so we will not support a vendor that treats customers that way. :hug:
