How are you doing, Insiders? DeucesJack at VapingInsider.com. Today, we’re going to be going over a new one from Wotofo. We’re going to be going over the Wotofo STNG. I don’t know if that’s short for sting.
Before we get into the video, head on over to our Facebook group. We’re going to have a link down below. The bigger the group gets, the stronger we get, the more informed we are. Head on over there and check it out. There’s a great group of people over there.
From Top to Bottom
This thing is a collaboration between Wotofo and Uncle Stas. I have no idea who the hell that is but let’s open this thing up and let’s see what we got here. Kind of looks almost like a Berserker, very Berserker-ish looking. You can see, I got one of the gold RDAs. You can tell right away, it’s a fingerprint magnet.
On the bottom side of the atomizer, you see some Wotofo branding, some Uncle Stas branding. You see a gold-plated 510, insulator ring around it, stainless steel threading around that. We’re going to leave that in there because the one I’m using, I already installed the squonking pin in so no need to do that with this one. Barrel, you can see, it’s all gold. Like I said, very fingerprint too. STNG on the barrel, it’s kind of subtle. I don’t mind it. There’s your airflow right there, kind of has like a Quasi Teardrop airflow so that’s kind of neat. I like that. Real tight mouth-to-lung drip tip, very long, what you’d expect on a mouth-to-lung RDA. It is a 510 drip tip so your other 510s will fit fine. I tend to like the other one a little better. I’ve been using that one.
Let me put this on a base for you. One thing I want to point out while it’s on the base, you see that that rim right there? I don’t like that. It’s a different color. It’s silver contrasting with gold, I don’t like that at all. I wish they would have matched that to whatever the barrel color is. Pull the barrel off, boom! Right there, you can see, really nice conical design inside. Should produce good flavor, that’s for sure. They did a nice job in doming the interior of that.
If flavor is your thing, be sure to check out my review of the Vandy Vape Mesh V2. It’s one of the best Mesh RDAs currently on the market.
Now here’s what everybody wants to see. This is the deck. You can see, you’re getting your airflow from underneath right here. It’s coming through there and underneath.There’s no airflow on this side which is kind of weird. I think this thing could have used a little bit more airflow. It’s really a little too tight for me. You can see, you have Phillips head screws on top here. The clamp actually raises up while you’re loosening it. I kind of like that. Nice job on that. It don’t matter which way your coils are wrapped because you can put the coil on either side of that T post. So that’s kind of neat. You’ll see, if I loosen this one up, you’re going to see the deck, the T part raised and that’s what I really liked about that. I think that’s nice that you don’t gotta knock them up in order to get your leads there. Nice job on that, Wotofo. Just a real simple, easy deck to build on. This really isn’t that hard to build on. When you’re done, this is what your atomizer should look like.
Before we go on top, I want to show you something with the airflow. You only have the airflow on one side. You have stoppers on both ends of the barrel and you can see how you can adjust it there with that little teardrop. Are you seeing that? You can give it a little sliver or you can make it wide open like that. Now, my problem with this airflow is this. It’s only on one side. There’s no airflow on the other. My other problem is, you see where it is? That’s a long way for that to travel and hit the bottom of that coil without having any air coming from this side. I think this atomizer would have been much better if they put the same air hole on this side. When I vape on it, it just feels very hollow, very non-direct. It doesn’t feel like it’s grabbing the bottom flavor from that coil. So I just wanted to point that out. Here it is all put together.

Alright, Insiders! Let’s get after those cons and pros.
First con is going to be, the airflow on this thing, I don’t know who the hell approved it, I don’t know who thought this was a good airflow. It’s one of the worst airflows I ever used on any RDA. Forget about just being a mouth-to-lung RDA. It’s got a very hollow feel to it which gives you like really hollow flavor. You know what it feels like? You remember the Aromamizer Light and they had that mouth-to-lung piece that you plugged in in order to make it a mouth-to-lung tank? It feels like that. It’s got that hollowness and it’s just horrible and the airflow feels like it’s all over the place. I don’t like it. I don’t know how the hell anybody vaped on this thing and thought that this was a good vape. It’s a big con.
This thing is really easy to over squonk on. You got to know your squonk bottle and your squonk mod when using it. This thing is easy to over squonk on and leak.
You can’t see it on this one but I got the gold one. On the stainless steel one, it looks fine. You got that stainless steel base that peeks out. But on the other colors, you got that stainless steel base that peeks out and it’s in contrast to the other colors in the barrel. I don’t like it, it looks particularly hideous on the gold one.
That’s it, Insiders! Those are my cons.
It’s got a couple of pros. Let’s get into the pros.
First pro’s going to be, it’s a very complete box. You get everything you need in there. You get a set of coils, you get some cotton, you get all the tools. I do like that. I like that.
Wotofo keeps including coils. So many manufacturers are getting away from putting coils in the box. I’m happy that they put coils in the box with some cotton.
I do like that it comes with two drip tips. That’s another pro.
It comes in lots of colors.
It’s got those spring-loaded posts.
I do like the locking barrel feature.
But that’s it, Insiders. That’s it on the pros.
It’s just not a lot to like about this RDA. We’ll talk about it for a minute but I don’t understand what the hell Wotofo’s logic was on this one. I don’t even know who this Uncle Stars guy is. I have no idea. He’s a Russian vapor viewer. I don’t understand how as a vapor reviewer, how you could vape on this thing and think that you’re getting a good vape. It’s got horrible airflow. The flavor, surprisingly, is okay. But the airflow itself is so indirect and so hollow feeling. It just feels like it’s all over the place. I do not like the way this thing vapes. I know, I know, I’m kind of killing this thing but I gotta be real with my subs. That’s why you guys are here because I keep it real no matter whose name is on the package and I gotta be real about this review. The bottom line is, there are a lot of other mouth-to-lung RDAs that do a much better job that will give you much better flavor than this one. I’m not a fan of it. I got a chuck up the Deuces to it. It’s out of here.
Let’s go over some of the specs on the Wotofo STNG. It measures in at 22mm. It is a single coil mouth-to-lung RDA. Primarily made out of stainless steel. It’s available in black, stainless steel, gunmetal, gold, blue and rainbow.
