Mike Vapes & WoToFo Recurve RDA Bottom Line
Mike Vapes has designed a great RDA and teaming up with WoToFo they have released the ReCurve RDA. Designed as a single coil RDA to maximize flavor with a deck that's easy to build on with no posts, what's not to like! Comes with both a traditional 510 pin and a pre-installed squonk pin this tank produces everything it promises. One great RDA tank!
Mike Vapes is a well known YouTube reviewer and now he has teamed up with WoToFo to design a new RDA for the vapers. So how does this new single coil RDA compete with the best and is the flavor that much improved? Well, we take a close look to see how it performs and how easy it is to use.
This RDA looks great, with its concaved sides which makes it easy to handle and choice of black, gunmetal, stainless steel and rainbow colors.
The tank is about 1.8mm thick, which gives it a stocky and heavy feel, the length is 21.4 without the drip tip on, has a diameter of 23.6mm with the top cap and finally the build deck with the top cap removed is 20mm. Overall, a good size, which should fit all of the best box mods.
The deck is the real star of the ReCurve RDA, it just looks beautiful and is postless! Meaning the design is made to look like one large mold. There is insulation to break the positive and negative sides of the deck. It does have 4 screws, this is not designed to use 2 coils, however, it’s been designed that way so you can put your coils in, either way, so don’t use them all in a single build!
To adjust the airflow you actually twist the whole top cap, the great thing about this design is that it has stoppers which prevent the cap to be turned any further. If you continue turning the RDA will unscrew from your mod. We noticed we keep banging on about RDA’s, if your unfamiliar with these type of devices, then check out our guide on RDA’s and RTA’s which explains the difference with these types of tanks.
As we said before, this is a postless deck and has been specifically designed to make it really easy for the user to build on. Being a single coil RDA it was never going to be that difficult, but we really like how easy they have made it.
The RDA does come preinstalled with a squonk pin, but the kit does also come with the standard 510 pin. You can simply unscrew the pin to replace it if you don’t have a squonk mod.
Opposite each side of where the coil sits are 6 air holes, they sit really close to the coil which is a good thing and specifically designed that way to produce the most flavor.
Building the deck is easy, WoToFo includes a coil spacer tool which looks similar to an Allen key, but this is to give you an idea of how long the legs of the coil should be. Simple place your coil on the main shaft and cut the coil where the leg shows.
Once the coil is cut to size, place in either direction on the deck and move until the coil is the same height as one of the sides of the deck, then simply tighten the screws to clamp the coil in.
First, we’re going to be using the WoToFo ReCurve RDA with a squonk mod to see how well it saturated the coil. Speaking of the coil, we using a 0.15-ohm, 3mm Alien stainless steel 316L, on the deck, in our opinion the stainless steel coils produce the better flavor.
We realize that depending on the type of squonk mod you have will alter the performance of the squonking! But we noticed it’s pretty easy to flood the tank and although the tank initially shows no leakage, if you move it round, the juice can come out of the air holes. Best to be cautious and not squonk too much!
Onto the taste, it doesn’t matter if you squonk or drip, the taste is the same and it’s the one thing that really makes the WoToFo ReCurve RDA stand out from the crowd! Nice thick flavourful clouds that bring the best out of any build.
For a single coil build, this has to be one of the best RDA’s on the market.
If your new to RDA’s and want one to really experiment on with different coils and kinds of cotton to find the ideal combination to suit you, then the WoToFo ReCurve RDA is definitely for you. It brings an almost perfect flavor from the build, thanks to the close proximity of those air holes to the coil.
Easy to build on, so you can switch the coils in seconds, easy to adjust airflow and remove from the mod to clean and also easy to switch from squonking to regular dripping. What more could you ask for from a single coil RDA? Great job Mike Vapes and WoToFo!
Granted, it’s not for everyone, especially those new to vaping. You may also be confused about what device to use, if you want a better idea and some suggestions, then check out our list of the best electronic cigarette devices.
