On the market for a rebuildable dripping atomizer (RDA), but not sure where to look? The Wotofo and Mike Recurve RDA is a great place to start. This RDA is the result of an awesome collaboration between Wotofo and Mike Vapes. Its bow-shaped wall sleeve design, unique drip tip, and chimney join forces to create the smoothest and most flavorful hits. This Wotofo Recurve RDA, in particular, is great at enabling a vaper to produce large clouds that will impress friends. It is also easy to use, and a great choice for beginner RDA users and experienced vapers alike.

What’s In the Box?

A purchase of the 24 mm Wotofo Recurve RDA comes with lots of extra goodies. In addition to the amazing RDA vape tool, purchasers will find these things in the sleek packaging:

  • 1 Spare 810 Drip Tip
  • 510 Drip Tip Adapter
  • 1 Set of CompWire Coils
  • Spare Parts Bag
  • 1 Japanese Cotton Pad

It is very helpful that this Recurve RDA comes with spare parts. Many vape RDAs do not, even though it is easy to lose the small pieces that they come with. Also, many vapers are attracted to its inclusion of a Japanese cotton pad. Japanese cotton is great for vaping because of its natural purity and ability to absorb fluid quickly, producing a clean hit. The included manual makes it is pretty self-explanatory to prepare for airflow, vape with, and maintain. Plus, there are resources online should a user ever need to look up a specific question about this RDA.

Recurve RDA Review: Quality

The Recurve RDA is truly built like no other. Its design is impressive, easy to use, and creates the ultimate vaping experience. This RDA is 24 mm in diameter, which is just wide enough to provide space without feeling too bulky. This unit has a very deep juice well. It is made out of a 316 stainless steel alloy, making it durable. It will be a great tool to bring on-the-go without having to worry about the potential damage that could occur.

As previously mentioned, this RDA has a bow-shaped wall sleeve designed to create the best hits possible. It also has a unique postless, four terminal build platform. The benefits of this postless deck RDA include having a lot more room to wick. It can also enhance airflow, making for higher quality vapor and enhanced flavor.

This RDA is designed for single coil configurations. One of the main benefits is that they use less battery. Single coils also waste less vape juice and are generally easier to rebuild for sessions. This RDA enhances all of these benefits. The Recurve is also top-secured via a reliable hex screw. This hex screw holds the unit steady during use and transportation.

The 24 mm Wotofo Recurve RDA has many great features that make it such a fantastic product. For starters, it has PEEK Insulators, which are great for protecting against heat. It also has six small air slots on both sides of the unit. Most units do not come with such a high number of airflow holes. Because the Wotofo Recurve RDA has so many spaces for air entrance, it produces large, easy hits every time. It also allows for two directional airflows. Most units can only take in air, but the Recurve can push it out as well. Its airflow is truly second to none.

The Recurve gives users a direct-to-coil chamber effect, which speeds up the amount of time it takes to produce a solid hit. This feature also helps save vape juice. This product has an 810 Delrin Widebore drip tip; however, its producers were thinking ahead. They also included a 510 drip tip adapter that makes this product universally easier to use. The last of the features for the Recurve is a squonk-ready bottom-feeding 510 pin and a 24K gold-plated 510 connection. With so many excellent features, this RDA is pretty hard to top.

Performance of the Wotofo Recurve RDA

The performance of this RDA will be a pleasant surprise. This product is great, especially for creating large clouds. Plus, it is easy to use thanks to its open platform plan. Beginners will find themselves getting the hang of building on the 24 mm Recurve in no time. Even though it is easy to use though, it is still high quality and presents a lot of options for building.

Wotofo Recurve RDA all

Experienced vapers will find that this unit provides them will all of the RDA options they need for their dream session. It is rare to find an RDA that accommodates both beginners and vape gods alike. It is important to note that this unit is not for lazy vapers though. Like most RDAs and vaping tools in general, needs to be cleaned regularly. The Wotofo Recurve is for users who take pride in their belongings and keep them in tip-top shape.

Are There Similar RDAs on the Market?

DigiFlavor Drop 24 mm RDA

It is pretty obvious what makes the Digiflavor Drop RDA similar to the Wotofo x Mike Vapes Recurve RDA. For starters, they both have the same deck width– 24 mm and are similar in price. They also come in the same number of colors, although the Drop is not available in the fun rainbow color. Additionally, the Drop RDA has a bulkier aesthetic than the Recurve. It looks more masculine and appears as though it is made of plastic. A benefit of this unit is that it has ten airflow holes, which is four more than the Recurve.

Digiflavor Drop RDA

Honestly, though, these few extra holes do not make much of a difference. The main difference between this product and the Recurve is that this unit has a four post build deck. The Recurve has no posts on its deck. Some vapers like having a deck with posts. Vapers who like to have a lot of room to build though will prefer the Recurve.

Vandy Vape Berserker RDA

The Vandy Vape Berserker is on this list because it is another similar unit on the market for a comparable price. Like the other two, this RDA is also 24 mm in width. Although it only comes in 4 colors, it does include the favored rainbow design. The Berserker only has 5 airflow holes as opposed to the Recurve’s six.

Vandy Vape rda silver

This unit also has a two post build deck. It definitely leaves more room for building than the DigiFlavor Drop. However, it still does not have as much free space as the post-less build deck of the Recurve. The Pyrex glass on this unit is also tinted yellow, making it appear old and dirty before it has even been used once.

I was a smoker for over 25 years. In this time I also earned my medical degree with a specialization in addiction treatment and counseling. That period has led me to vaping, my interest started around 2011. I’m fighting the tide of hysteria and dis-information around vaping that emanates from various fronts legislative, cultural and scientific. Having scientific councils support, I’m happy to contribute my thoughts, articles, and expertise.
