Norseman’s Review on the Pulse 24mm RDA from Vandy Vape

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

Package
This RDA comes in the well known blue and white square box from Vandy Vape where the RDA is on top together with an extra drip tip. Underneath you will find the manual and the goodie bag with extra grub screws, o-rings, 510-adaptor, 510 squonk pin and a tool with a screwdriver and allen keys on it.

The RDA
It is a 3-piece RDA with 2 air holes on each side and on the lower part it has 4 tubes attached which go into the deck, leading the air right to the coils. The way it is built I would say that it supports both single and dual coils without any issues.

This is a postless RDA and as with many others like it, it doesn’t have much of a juice well. It is however really easy to build on and there’s no problem positioning the coils in order to get the most out of it flavor wise.

The drip tip size is 810 so any of your Goon drip tips will fit nicely on it, and the ones I have tried worked just fine. It came with a yellow ultem which I used and a tad smaller black one which I haven’t tried.

The airflow with both holes open gives you a really wide open RDA which still has good flavor, but if you close it off a bit it becomes a little restricted and the flavor becomes more intense. Even though I’m not the biggest fan of restricted RDA’s, I do like great flavor and this one can provide me with that.

I used coils yet again from Stratos (www.instagram.com/qstraq/) in this RDA and this time I tried his Framed Staples. As with the other coils I have tried these also perform really well, giving me good flavor. If you haven’t already I strongly recommend you to go to his Instagram and check him out.

It has a notch on the inside of the lower sleeve and a corresponding one on the deck which makes the top cap sit in the same place every time you put it on, meaning it sits where it should at all times. Perhaps not to everyone’s liking, but I kinda find it nice knowing the airflow will sit where it should.

The upper sleeve has a conical shape to it which helps out in improving the flavor and believe me, it is good for sure.

This RDA also has good o-rings and everything sits real snug as it should. Even after using it for a while and getting juice all over the o-rings, they still do their job keeping everything in place, holding the parts together real snug. Good job there Vandy Vape.

My only real gripe with this rda is the leakage i have noticed through the 510 pin. Despite all my efforts to get rid of that leakage it is still there. If i had used it on a squonk mod i wouldn’t mind the juice going through the 510 pin but on a hybrid mechanical tube it isn’t as much fun since the positive on the batteries get drenched in liquid.

Assessment
My list of great flavor RDA’s of 2017 is growing by every review lately as this one also, without any doubt, gets on that list. It is easy to build, it delivers good flavor and the price isn’t bad either. The fact that you can use it on any of your squonk mods makes it even more interesting.

Can i recommend it to others?
Yes I can, after all what all of us want is good flavor and it delivers on that. We also like our RDA’s to be easy to build on, and it is. It is also fairly priced at $21.01
