Full Wotofo Recurve DUAL RDA Review
The Fit, Finish, And Overall Look And Feel of The Recurve DUAL RDA is Very Impressive. For A Sub-$40 RDA, Youíre Getting A LOT of Value For Money With This Setup.
Wotofo, with its collaborators, really knows how to put together great RDA tanks. I didnít love the companies last batch of RTAs, but Iíve always had a soft spot for its RDAs Ė?the Lush Plus, The Eldar Dragon, the Nudge, and now the Wotofo Recurve DUAL.
The design is straight-forward enough. Oddly, there is no curve to the tankís chassis as there was on the Recurve RDA, save for a slight taper at the very top of the tankís main section just below the drip tip.
The finish and aesthetics, however, are very sharp and very much on point.
The Deck is a Dream To Build On. Itís Postless, The Kit Includes a Coil Lead Clipper, So Getting It Just Right For Optimal Airflow and Flavor is Super-Simple. Even If Youíre A Beginner.
Itís a 24mm by 34mm tank, so itís fairly squat Ė?this is good. I prefer low-profile RDAs, as they look better on mechs and vape mods. My test unit was the rainbow one, but Wotofo retails a bunch of other options. I think I like black the best.
On the sides of the tank, you have the AFC, which is composed of six air holes. To adjust it, simply turn the tank left or right. It works smoothly enough and it is easier to adjust than the Recurve RDAís AFC. However, unlike the Recurve RDA, the Recurve DUAL works best wide open. If you close it down too much, the flavor falls over and things get too hot.
From a design perspective, the Wotofo Recurve DUAL RDA is a stellar rebuildable atomizer. The postless deck is badass to work with, the AFC is easy to use and well implemented, and the outside look and feel of the tank are superb and premium looking. Basically, it has everything you could want from a mid-range dual coil RDA.
The Wotofo Recurve DUAL RDA uses a postless deck design, similar to the original Recurveís Ė only here, thereís room for two coils. Once youíve clipped your leads using the included lead-measuring tool, you simply slot them in place and tighten them down. Itís simple and takes no more than five minutes, including adjustment and wicking.
The airflow, when you take a hit on the RDA, is directed inwards and then down onto the coils. The placement of the coils, therefore, has to be fairly precise in order to get the most flavor from the tank. Thankfully, using the coil tool makes this super easy Ė just measure, clip, install, tighten down, and theyíll be where they need to be.
Conceptually, the deck inside the Wotofo Recurve DUAL RDA is exactly the same as the Recurveís. Itís just bigger and can accommodate two coils. Other than that, it is more or less identical, so fans of the Recurve RDA will feel right at home.
On a personal note, I really do love how easy this deck is to work with Ė?postless is definitely my preferred deck design these days.
The deck is great, and this leads to some really good flavor which is exactly what you want from a dual-coil RDA. The juice wells are deep enough for dripping and the squonk function is superb too, so whatever mode you run the Wotofo Recurve DUAL in youíre going to be having a good time.
The flavor is precise and intense, as it should be. As noted earlier,?I came from the Occula RDA?to this RDA, and the difference with flavor is night and day Ė?the Wotofo Recurve DUAL RDA is vastly superior, delivering spades of flavor and plenty of clouds too. Wotofoís included coils and wick are also brilliant as well, adding to the overall prowess of this tank.
Iíve been using this RDA solidly for a couple of weeks now. It hasnít leaked, missed a beat, or let me down in any way.
The flavor is always consistent and, providing you change your wick once a week, youíll never experience any dead notes or flat flavors when vaping with the Wotofo Recurve DUAL RDA.
Itís not great with the AFC closed down. Like not great at all. Instead, for maximum flavor and performance, youíll want the AFC wide open so as to ensure the airflow hitting the coils is thick and constant. The more closed off the AFC, the worse the flavor and overheating issues. Bottomline: keep the AFC wide open for the best performance.
The draw is kinda-restricted too, and by that I mean itís not ultra-swooshy like some dual coil RDAs. There is a slight restrictiveness to it that I really like; it makes the draw more engaging and exciting. And because of the placement of the coils, theyíre nice and high, you get mountains of flavor from fairly low wattages (70-80W), which is great for conserving E Juice and battery life.
Should You Buy The Wotofo Recurve DUAL RDA?
The Recurve DUAL RDA is Available In a Range of Color Options. My Favorite is The Black and Red Version.?Check Out The Full Color Range Here
If you like your RDAs to have a slightly restricted draw then, yes, you should 100% be checking the Wotofo Recurve DUAL RDA out. Wotofo and Mike Vapes have produced a thoroughly excellent RDA here, one that is ideal for dripping and squonking.
Wotofo includes a TON of gear inside the box as well. I mean, just look what this RDA comes with:
1pc Recurve Dual RDA
1pc Coil Trimming Tool
1pc Squonk Pin
1pc User Manual
1bag Organic Cotton*1
1bag Extra Orings & Screws
The flavor is badass across the board, providing you run the tankís AFC wide open. The deck is simple to work with and the overall design and finish of the tank are very much on point, as youíd expect from Wotofo. For me though, the thing that makes this RDA so great, besides its flavor, is the simplicity of its postless deck and the sheer amount of goodies you get inside the box.
The Recurve DUAL RDA is an ideal option for new vapers or those that havenít used an RDA before. Itís simple to set up, it comes with everything you need to get started, it squonks like a champ, and the flavor it kicks out, while not market-leading, is definitely up there in the 1% of RDAs I have tested in the past 18 months.
