Norseman’s Review on the Capstone RDA from Vandy Vape
İmage

I received this Capstone RDA free of charge directly from Vandy Vape for the purpose of this review. Regardless of this, it will not color my opinion on this review in any way, shape or form.

İmage

Packaging
This came in a sample box that had a sticker on it that says it’s solely for trial-production and it does also say sample several places on it. So the retail package is going to be something we have seen from Vandy Vape before. I will despite that show the box it came in.

İmage

The RDA
It is a 3-piece RDA with a totally different design on the barrel with a kind of diamond cut all around. It doesn’t look like most other RDA’s, I can say that much. And it is made in collaboration between Vandy Vape and VapeHappy.

İmage

The deck got a different kind of post, it is a pyramid shaped clamp style thingy. It does take up a lot of space in the deck not leaving much room for the bigger coils, so those of us that like that kinda thing is out of luck with this one.

Another thing the pyramid post does, is that it takes away a lot of space for the liquid, meaning you have to drip more often since the juice well isn’t that deep either. It also closes off the juice well, meaning that you have one juice well on each side of the pyramid post. But used as a Squonk atty you will get a better distribution of the liquid since it will pour out evenly through the post.

İmage

The clamp design on the pyramid deck does however work really good and it holds the coils in place as they should. In order to cut the coil legs into a proper length, Vandy Vape delivers a coil leg cutting tool you can use to cut the legs. It lets you cut the coil legs from 4 mm up to 11 mm in length.

İmage

The airflow is smooth and quiet and it is easy to change how much air you wanna let in. You can’t however close it off entirely, it is either fully open or half closed or somewhere in between, and thats it. I would have appreciated the possibility to close it off even more for those that like a more restrictive airflow. And furthermore it doesn’t whistle or make any other kind of noises, at least not for me.

İmage

It uses 810 drip tips and the ones I have fits nicely on to it without any issues. It is also delivered with a 510 drip tip and a 510 drip tip adapter for those of you that wanna use your own custom 510 drip tips.

İmage

In the package you will also find an extra PC comp cap and this one doesn’t have an adjustable airflow, so it will be wide open at all times. Good for the cloud people, I’m sure.

Something I really have an issue with on any RDA is bad O-rings, as in too lose or too tight. In the Capstone they are actually pretty good. The top cap might be a little too snug but the bottom O-rings are just dandy.

İmage

So how does it perform you might wonder now…? All I can say is that it does perform quite good and it does deliver on flavor, which I do appreciate a lot.

Assessment
All in all I have had a nice experience with it during the test period and I have gotten good flavor out of it as well. It is easy to both build and wick

Can I recommend it to others?
If you are interested in a different deck and definitely a different look on the barrel, and something that delivers on flavor, it might be something for you. It is easy to build and wick and it does come with a lot of extras.

Pros
Machining
Good flavor
Hybrid safe
Squonk ready
O-rings
Easy to build

Cons
Closed off juice well due to the pyramid post
