First Impression out of the Box

DeucesJack: What’s up everyone? DeucesJack at vapinginsider.com. Today, I got a new one from Vandy Vape for you. Yeah, that’s right. I got the Vandy Vape Revolver single coil RTA sitting on top of my OG Geekvape Aegis. Had to break it out for this one. Does well with single coils. This one’s 24.5mm in diameter on the ring but it bubbles out to 25 so we’ll call it 25 for the purposes of this review. 45mm tall, single coil tank. Has that Ghoul Blitz Enterprises’ sort of deck in it, three different airflow options.

Let’s dive down. Let me show it to you up close and personal. I’m even going to throw a build in it for you. See you down low.

What’s In The Box

  • 1 Revolver RTA
  • 1 Extra Widebore Drip Tip
  • 1 Spare Glass Tube
  • 1 Accessory Bag
  • 1 Instructional Manual

Alright, everyone? Welcome to the down low portion of this video. Today, we’re going to be going over the Vandy Vape Revolver RTA. As you can see I have a sample package and as with Vandy Vape packaging, your retail packaging will probably vary.

Quick tour around the box. Got that stainless steel one. On the back, nothing much really going on there. Let’s take a look and see what we got here. Here is the RTA. We’re going to go over that in a minute. Here is your spare glass. Here is your spare drip tip, goon frosted style drip tip with a little bit of a ribbing over here. Gives it a little bit of texture. Underneath the box, we have a TPD spacer that was pre-installed in order to make this thing TPD compliant. I could care less. Here is a Vandy Vape quality certificate. Here is your spare parts bag with a Phillips head blue screwdriver and a flat head blue screwdriver. There is also a 510 drip tip adapter in there, spare O-rings and spare deck screws.

From Top To Bottom

Starting off on top, we got a nice thick Delrin drip tip. In there, nice and snug, this is an 810 goon style drip tip. You can see it’s like a wide board drip tip but very thick. Around the circumference, you can see the O-ring inside. All of my other goon style drip tips fit fine. A little bit of nice knurling on the top cap so you can get a good grip. In order to get your top cap off and top fill it, you just simply remove it.

This juice fill port here and here will accommodate almost any type of bottle even bullnose bottles. Threading on it is very smooth. It does come apart so you can replace the glass for the straight glass. I do believe mine came with a straight glass pre-installed but I switched to the bubble. There is your barrel inside there. A little bit of Vandy Vape branding. A little bit of Revolver branding over there.

On the bottom of the base, we have dual airflow slots with stoppers on both ends. Whatever you do on one happens on the other. On the bottom of the tank, we also have some serial numbers, gold-plated 510 connection, insulator ring around it, stainless steel threading over here and some Vandy Vape branding over there as well as somebody’s name in script. I have no idea who it is.

In order to get access to the deck, simply unscrew the base. There is your deck. Notice, the barrel has a semi-domed design that will definitely contribute to flavor. I would have like to have seen a more conical design in there. You basically have one post screw which is right here. You can use a Philips or a flathead screw on it. This T piece over here, right there, is where your leads clamp down. Here is your revolver-style air and here are your wicking ports. It’s like a semi-GTA style deck. The cutout doesn’t go all the way around but it’s almost like a GTA-style deck. Kind of weird.

Here is the different thing about this deck. You’re going to notice. See that? See how it can switch airflows. I have to be honest I tried all three of them. I would say this is probably the most wide open. That’s probably the second most wide open and this is probably the smoothest airflow, this cheese-grater style. Really really nice airflow.

I’m going to install the same coil that I had in there because I’ve been truly enjoying it.

Building

Installing a coil in here is extremely easy. Simply slip your coil into place just like that. You don’t even have to worry about cutting it because you can cut whatever excess is on the back right there even though this one is pre-cut. Once you get the coil where you want it, you simply tighten it down with your flathead or Phillips head screw. Make sure it’s nice and hand tight. Don’t go crazy cranking on it. And then you just put your coiling rod in there and get the proper coil placement. And that’s it. It’s built. That’s where you want it, right there. You want it as close to that airflow as you can get without touching. Whatever’s left over on the back here, you make sure you cut your leads off and you’re all built and ready to go.

Let’s put it on the Coil Master 521 Plus Tab, see what we’re ohming out at. We’re ohming out at 0.32. Let’s give it a gentle little pulse. Make sure we have no hot spots. There we go. We’re glowing from the inside out, very evenly.

Wicking

Let me show you how to wick this thing up. Wicking material we’re going to be using today is Native Wick Platinum Blend. You guys know that’s the way I roll. I just like to tear myself off a nice piece. Give it a little roll between my fingers. Make one side nice and pointy. Let’s make sure the Coil Master is off so we don’t burn ourselves while we’re wicking and you just kind of get that in there nice and tight, just like that. You want that type of resistance. I like to wick it nice and tight. I’m not big on the comb out thing unless the wicking ports are small. That’s not the case here. What I like to do is measure my cotton right below where that deck cut out is and give it a snip. Turn it around. Same thing on the other side. I put my scissor right up against that deck cutout and I give it a nice snip. Now what you want to do is you want to take whatever tool you use for tucking in your cotton and just nice and gently tuck your cotton into the wicking slots. Make sure none of your threading is blocked by cotton fibers because that’s going to be an issue. You don’t want it locking that tank down. Same thing on the other side, nice and gently. There you go. See how loose I have it there? You don’t want to choke off that cotton.

Here’s a really nice thing about this that I wanted to show you. You can actually adjust the airflow while your coil is in place. See that moving? Look at that. Isn’t that awesome? That’s a great feature. We’re going to put it back to the cheese grater.

Juice we’re going to be using today is one of my favorites, my all-time favorites. That1Vape, French Vanilla Custard. This thing is just a great simple custard. You ever get a chance, check this juice out. All you want to do after you’re done wicking, you want to take your bottle and you just want to wet those wicks up just a little bit. Get a little bit underneath there too, just to get them started. Same thing on the other side. Get them nice and juicy. You might want to put some juice on top of your coil there and give it a nice fire. Make sure we have vapor. There we go. Get that cotton nice and saturated. Get that juice flowing through that coil. Oh, boy! This stuff smell fantastic.

Let me put this RTA back together. Let’s cut back on top. We’re going to vape on it. We’re going to talk about it. Cons, pros and then we’re out of here as usual. See you back on top.

General Thoughts

Alright, everyone? We’re back on top with the Vandy Vape Revolver single coil RTA. Great flavor, man. This thing’s got some banging flavor. It’s got that nice restrictive hit that I really dig. Very very smooth airflow. I definitely prefer the honeycomb style airflow over the other two. The other two are a little too airy for me. Awesome 5ml capacity with that bubble glass installed, 3mls with the straight glass. I love that T-post deck, super easy to build and super easy to wick. They included some really nice coils in the packaging. I like that. And I love the airflow options and the range. The different configurations on this thing are just phenomenal.

Let’s get into the cons and pros.

Cons

I really only have one con. I really do. This is one of my favorite coils RTA on the market right now. The one con I have is it’s a pain in the neck to switch that airflow because you got to pull out your deck. I wish Vandy Vape would have come up with a way that I could adjust that airflow on the outside of the tank. That would have been ingenious. That would have been a game changer. I think they should have engineered this thing or put a little bit more effort into it and it would have been phenomenal.

Domed barrel inside, that’s conducive to great flavor, pro.

I love the fact that it only has one post screw and it’s a nice post screw. That one post screw controls everything. Pro on that.
