Help with Snapdragon
Hello everyone
I have just bought a snapdragon rda, but I am really struggling to get good flavour from it.
I have tried single coils only kanthal 0.40mm and 0.35mm and various ohms from 1 ohm to 1.9ohm 2.5mm and 3 mm id , I have also tried home made 60pg/40vg and shop bought 70vg/30pg juices. Normally use rtas and am very happy with my evl reapers, squape rs, rose v2 and my kayfuns. Really disappointed with the flavour from the snappy am I doing something wrong. I have tried different height coil over airhole and different cottons.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Help with Snapdragon
Personally I'd build a dual coil coming in around 0.8 ohms, set them just above the airholes and the wick just touching the bottom. This is how I used to set mine up, I only used it in bf mode though.

I don't do subohm as I find it to hot for my liking.

Thanks for your input
I think it was the juice I was using shop bought 70vg 30pg
I tried snappy out on half a dozen of my home brew 60pg 40vg juices and it tasted really good.

I tried all sorts in the 1 I had,single coil,dual coil,SS,kanthal,Clapton's,plain wire but nothing gave even close to half decent flavour,I gave up & sold it,
Hope you have more luck in the end than I did.

Yes pretty sure it was the shop bought ejuice as my home brew juice is spot on.
At the moment I have a 27g 2.5mm 1.6ohm single coil kanthal at 11 watts in my snappy with cotton bacon and it tastes beautiful.
