    Taifun GS - 2 cent Review

    Hey Guys n Gals,

    Orinally posted this.... Scroll down for an update & 2c Review.

    Vapemail day with the presentation of my new multi purpose clearo/tank RBA system.

    The Taifun GS
    Attachment 12350

    Let me just say for anybody that enjoys GP Spheroid, EVOD BCC or Kayfun type taste and RBA's you should give one of these beauties a try.

    Multiple setups from a slightly bigger Spheroid type deal to Silica rebuildable gravity tank and Dripping system.

    So far have no leaking issues and no leaks (EDIT: Really, Duh....! No leaking issues and no leak, wow...Sorry about that). Running it on a Dingo with a kick. Tried it with a Nemi, GP Paps and a Vision Fatboy Spinner. Looks all ok but on the Spinner it looks a little Dow Chemical Syndrome going on.

    Just wanted to share. If you're looking for something that can be set up multiple ways and can't get hold of or are waiting for the Taifun GT, then I can say its not a bad little bit of kit.

    Vape On McDuff.

    *** 2 c Review****

    Right, now i had a couple of days to play around with my new toy. I have tried a couple of different setups.

    Firstly was the GP Spheroid type setup with Jewel filler. Although a very similar to Spheroid experience, for me the filler dilutes the taste a little. Maybe at a later date I will try another filler. However, saying that there was no sense of any taste from the filler itself, I found it just was not as tasty as the next setup I tried. Having said that, it was very good on equal footing as the Spheroid, but with a bigger tank. (I used the plastic tank, not the stainless steel version
    )

    The goal post setup was the one that in which I was amazed. The taste was so in your face, natural. I initially tried it with Ekowool 2mm. I found due to Ekowool having a larger diameter than Silika, the 2mm version is too big. In my initial setup I guess I cut the strand too short roughly 10 mm (which I got from the picture on the manual) which due to the size of the wick, wicking was having some issues. In trying to prime the wick, (placing your finger over the air hole whilst drawing on the drip tip/ mouth piece I sucked one on the wick strands back through the hole into the coil reservoir. Allowing for a mix of dry hits thus wanting to prime again leading to flooding.

    I subsequently emptied and cleaned the tank out setting up a new wick and coil using 2mm Silica with 32 AWG 3/4 coil.
    Wow......all of a sudden I was transported into a fantasy land of eJuice bliss. Boba's was at the door knocking and then forcing his way tap dancing on my taste buds. I could almost hear the sirens call Ohh ahhh ahhhh aaaaah, Ohh ahhh ahhhh aaaaah! Wow, now thats the way things were suppose to taste.

    I have found my preferred setup with this little gem, and she indeed is a little diamond.

    Other tid bits. I changed the air pipe to 1mm which I found was slighlty too tight a draw for me personally, but if you prefer a tighter draw that option is available to you for about $2.
    When it comes time to change the wick & coil, I will also try the 1.5mm pipe that I got. But at the moment I find the original 1.2mm that comes as standard to be spot on.

    Another personal preference for me is that although it looks great, the drip-tip is a little sharp. I changed it out for a slightly wider more rounder barrel something that doesn't seem so crisp and sharp. Less Ming drip-tip style

    Basically this is a uhmmm 18 mm could be wrong cant remember but smaller, less juice tank and slightly different internals. Wick doesn't sit in a cut-out like the GT.

    The thing pulls down to bits and is quite easy to work on your wick good access to the 2 poles.

    Cheaper and quite a few different setups possible. For people that like the Spheroid it offers that but with higher juice capacity. Plus not the same 1 month pre-order as the GT.

    Mmmmm lol.

    I did this because there was only a german review. I was going to do a vid but nobody really seemed interested. And i didn't want to scare everyone with my ugly mug

    Sorry if this is a late response. I actually have been looking for English review of the GS but no luck. I found the German one and kept guessing the whole time until I found your review.

    I've had this beauty for over 2 weeks now going from excellent setup to crazy flooding until I used cotton. WOW...its working now like an auto dripper with really nice flavour and clouds (mini of course).

    Thanks for the review.

    Cheers.
