First Impression out of the Box

DeucesJack: What’s up everybody? DeucesJack at vapinginsider.com. Today, I have the Wotofo Recurve. Look at that thing, man. I got it on top of the brand new Eleaf Squeeze 2. Really nice little mod with a light up bottle. Will be reviewing it real soon. But let’s get into this.

Listen, it’s probably time to get an honest review on this one because of who made it- Mike Vapes. I’ve interviewed him before. He’s a nice guy. He’s got a lot of friends in the vape industry, a lot of reviewer friends. They might be a little biased when they do that. On this channel, you’re not going to get that. I’m going to give it to you straight on this one.

We’re going to cut down low, we’re going to go over everything. I’m even going to throw a build in on it and I might have a giveaway at the end of the video so stay tuned. See you down low.

What’s In The Box

  • 1 ReCurve RDA
  • 1 Spare 810 Drip Tip
  • 1 510 Drip Tip Adapter
  • 1 Set of Comp Wire Coils
  • 1 Japanese Cotton Pad
  • Spare Parts Bag

Wotofo Recurve Review

Alright everyone, welcome to the down low portion of this video. Today we’re going over the Wotofo Recurve RDA by Mike Vapes. Let’s take a quick tour around the box. A little bit of Recurve, Mike vapes branding, scratch-and-sniff over here, I got the rainbow on, same Recurve and Mike Vapes branding, some Wotofo branding.

Let’s look at the back of the box. In this case you will receive your Recurve RDA, user manual, compwire coils, 510 drip tip adapter and some Japanese cotton and extra screws and orings. Let’s look at the contents of the box. First thing you see, nice user manual plenty of pictures. Inside, I opened up a few of the packages already. You got this Phillips head, black screw driver, some cotton. Everything, by the way, is in these ridiculous compwire bags that Wotofo is famous for. In this bag you get some spare deck screws, a traditional 510 pin, some spare o-rings.

One thing I wanted to point out which is really cool, you get this 3 mm and 2.5 mm coiling jigs. One thing i wanted to show you about this 2 coiling jigs, right here is your tool to actually measure the length of your leads. In this comp bag you get three coils. There’s only two in there because I used the one already. But nice coil, they did a nice job with that. Now all you have to do in order to get the perfect length for this RDA is slip your coil onto here and see where it comes even with the short side? All you do is put your wire clipper there, give it a snap. Turn everything around, give it another snip and now you have the perfect coil length for your actual RDA.

From Top To Bottom

Let’s go over the barrel real quick. You have some Recurve branding over here etched in. Over here you have 6 airflow slots. you can see the barrel is quite thick with a slightly conical shape to it. You see these notches in here? That basically good customer on both ends of your AFC. When you do go to take the RDA off of your body, it does not keep spinning. I like that. it’s a pretty cool feature. Here is your beautiful goon style drip tip. Resin, really nice. All my other goon style drip tips have fit nice and snug in there. You can see we have a goon style in our O-ring on the top plate over there. Nice job.

They also included one that’s the same exact shape but it’s not made of resin. It’s like a frosted delrin. And if that’s not enough for you, you also get a drip tip adapter just in case you like running your regular 510s. But I like the blue one so let’s keep it there.

Now let’s move on to the deck. You can see on the deck, we have 6 airflow holes that coincide with the 6 on the barrel on each side, going through the block. Kind of like a half pipe design here. I know a lot of people haven’t said it but I’ll say it. If Vandy Vape made a Kylin RTA, this would probably be the design. Very very similar to a Kylin style deck. Mike vapes branding, 2 O-rings with really nice tolerances, philips head screws.

One thing I have to say is the screws aren’t the greatest quality. I know some people have already reported that part that only on the negative side of the deck, if you screw it down too hard, the terminals have been chipping. So just be cognizant of that and don’t wrench your screws down like a monkey because they’re not the greatest screws in the world.

Nice sized terminals right there. 2 post design, 2 terminals per post. You can see, not much of a juice well. That’s the biggest con on this thing. It’s really not a dripper. It’s really made for squonking. It’s pre set-up for squonking. There is your squonking pin hole right there. Your wicks go here. The juice well is probably the biggest con on this. There really isn’t much of one to be honest with you.

On the back side, we have a gold-plated squonking pin. A little bit of Wotofo branding, Mike Vape branding and some Recurve branding. There’s an insulator ring around the squonking pin and the threading on here is pretty smooth.

Building & Wicking

Let’s drop a build in it and see how it does. Now the first thing you want to do, you take your pre cut coil. You just kind of slap it in there. You saw how easy that was? Now you grab your screwdriver, give it a nice little twist. Same over here on the other side, give it a nice little twist and now you can basically see that that coil is placed in there perfectly.

Let’s put it on Coil master 521 tab plus and pulse it. Make sure you don’t have any hotspots. Let’s give it a gentle little pulse. Maybe a couple of strokes, there we go. We’re in business. Now it’s going to be time to wick it.

Today we’re going to be using Native wicks Platinum blend. One of my favorite wicking materials of all time. Give it a little bit of a roll, make sure your Coil master is shut off because you don’t want to accidentally fire and you give it – hear that squeak? Perfect. Now what I like to do is I like to cut my wicks right around the bottom o-ring right there. There we go. Same thing on this side. Give it a nice little snip. And now you’re ready to tuck your wicks in.

By the way, shout out to the Vapeshears. Best scissors for wicking in my opinion. Now in order to wick this thing, all you have to do is gently take your cotton and place it in the wicking port. The same thing on the other side. Gently tuck it in and now you’re ready to juice it up and vape.

Alright, let’s put this thing back together. Now the airflow is fully open, you’ll see with the top cap. As I slide it, you’ll see it closed two holes at a time. There you go, I’ll show it to you again. There’s stoppers on both ends. See that? And that’s how you adjust your airflows, stoppers on both ends. Nice job on that.

Let’s cut back on top, let’s talk about it a bit. We’ll go over everything, cons, pros and then we’re out of here. See you back on top.

General Thoughts

We’re back on top with the Wotofo Recurve by Mike Vapes. Hey man, what can really say about it? 24 mm squonk ready RDA, 35 mm in height, weighs 60 grams. It’s thick. You saw it up close, man. That barrel is pretty thick. Comes in a bunch of different colors. Right now it’s available in black, blue, rainbow, gunmetal and stainless steel. I’m going to be totally honest with you guys. This is one of my favorite one lungers.

Cons

Let’s get into the official cons and pros.

First con is going to be and one of the most annoying cons I ever had on an RDA. I really- sometimes I want to take this thing and rip it off my mod. That airflow, in order to adjust it, you cannot see it for crap. Almost every time I have to take that barrel out and line it up manually. I think that’s because of the thickness of the barrel. It’s really hard to see in there. I almost wish they would have made at least one side of the deck a different color so it would be easier to see. It’s easier to see against the peakinsulator park on the block. They should have made it a more vibrant color because you can’t see it when you’re adjusting it. It’s the most annoying thing in the world. It really is.

Other con is it’s not really a good dripper. It really is squonker. There’s no juice well so it’s really not a good drip. When you drip from the top, that juice kind of wells up on the top there and you get a lot of spit back. I wouldn’t use this as a dripper. If you’re going to buy this, buy it specifically to squonk with.

The other thing I want to mention is I don’t know but since I was late getting this, I watched a couple of other reviews on it and I see these other reviewers and they’re squonking anf the’re like, “Look, it doesn’t leak.” first of all, I don’t even know when that became a thing. Every squonk, every atomizer is going to leak if you put enough juice through it. Simple physics and this one’s no different. Yes, is it tough to over squonk on it? Without a doubt it is but don’t believe that hype when you hear people saying it doesn’t leak because that’s just a bunch of BS. you put enough juice through it, it’s going to leak. It’s going to leak out in the air holes. That’s just a fact. I’m not really giving it so much of a con for that. It’s just a pet peeve I want to bring up.

The other con is if you do over squonk, those holes get filled with the juice and they might not come out of the barrel right away but if you do have juice in there, when you go to inhale you get kind of some spit back when you go to take a hit. So you got to make sure you don’t over squonk with it because your first pull is going to be very juicy.

Another con is the post screws. They’re not the greatest. They just aren’t and we already touched upon this other con, it’s got a small juice well. There’s basically no juice well. You just have a place to put your cotton and that’s basically it.

Pros

Now, let’s get on to the pros because there’s a ton of them.

First pro is going to be great flavor. Flavor on this RDA is absolutely awesome.

Second pro is going to be, this thing vapes like a dual coil RDA.

I’m going to give it a pro because it is a very confident squonker. In fact, this is an awesome squonker. So we’;; give it a pro for that. On of my favorite working RDAs.

Let’s give it a pro because it’s easy to build.

I’m going to give them a pro on the looks. I like the curved barrel and I like the curved srip tip. They did a good job on that. We’ll give them a pro for that.

Let’s give them a pro on the fact that it comes in a bunch of great colors. The’ll get a pro on that.

I’m also going to give them a pro for 2 drip tips and the 510 drip tip adapter. Great job, Wotofo. Great job, Mike.

We’ll also give them a pro that it’s tough to over squonk even though I went over it a little bit in the cons. It still is a tough one to over squonk on but that is basically up tp you as a user.

Let’s give them a pro on the smooth airflow. This thing has really nice aireflow very smooth. Great job on that.

I’m also going to give them a pro on the comfortable drip tip, that curvy drip tip is extremely comfortable. You’re going to love it if you’ve never vaped on one like that before.

I’m going to give them a pro on the thick barrel. That barrel is really nice and it’s machined pretty well. It really is. They did a nice job on the machining.

Let’s give them a pro on the conical design on the interior, that’s alway conducive to great flavor. They’ll get a pro for that.

I’m also going to give them a pro for the notched barrel. I like that my AFC has stoppers on both ends. Good job on that.

And let’s also give them a pro for the deck design. I like the fact that you have two posts, 2 terminal per posts. It doesn’t matter which way you wrap your coil. You can put it in either way, it’s a pro on that.
