    Hey all,

    Could anyone recommend a rebuildable or 2 that'll give me a decent / good throat hit when vaping at 3mg / 10-12w?

    I'm using home-made peppermint menthol juice with a 70pg / 30vg ratio. Coils are 2.5mm id 6-7 wrap 316L wire.

    I have tried the Ares rta, True tank from Naturevape, Damn Vape DIamond and the Glaz Mini.
    And although they all offer good to excellent flavour they are all a bit soft when it comes to the throat hit.
    ( Plus the Ares had a slight whiste, as did the Diamond when the airflow was reduced )

    The one tank that I can get a decent feel from is the MD rta from Hellvape ( thankfully I picked it up after seeing Todd's review on it )

    I realise my main issue is the 3mg nic strength ( I started out at 12mg years ago when I switched from cigs ), but the MD tank has given me hope that there is other rta's / rdta's out there that will be worth picking up.

    I currently have the Galaxies RDTA in the post, so my fingers are crossed that it will do the trick too.

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    Not really @MoodyB VG/PG ratio also plays an integral part on throat hit.
    Swapping to a 50/50 mix will offer an increase in throat hit.

    Hi and welcome btw.

    Try increasing the height of your coils a bit.

    Ah, also, I don’t have one, but some were saying that the adjustable chamber in the spica pro rta allowed the throat hit to be varied. Maybe @Crewella could advise?

    Not really, PG gives throat hit and he said he is using 70pg/30vg. Reducing the pg will only decrease the throat hit

    Agreed. However at 3mg for mtl I wouldn’t hold out too much hope but worth a shot.

    I guess this with high PG could be getting to where you need it.

    Could also try vaping at higher wattages for a warmer vape

    Thanks :)

    I think my coils are already about 3mm above the MD's air disc already, so I can change the disc out if needed.

    I'll try putting the coil higher in the Glaz Mini though.

    Sorry. I'll remember in the future :)
