Youde Goblin

Youde Technology Co LTD (also known as UD - for Unification of Design!) are well known within the vaping industry for providing excellent value genuine rebuildable dripping and tank atomisers, such as the top selling Aga-T Rebuildable Tank Atomiser (RTA) and the Igo RDA series. They have been around a fair while now, and their latest offering is the much hyped Youde Goblin RTA…

Now, it is flawed in the sense that there are a few machining and QC problems here. I know I am not the only one to experience a few issues. However, once you get around these issues and get the Goblin purring it’s an extremely reliable and versatile RTA, and you get a hell of a lot from it for the price that you pay.

Much has been made about the cloud production but the thing that astounds me is the flavour you get from the Goblin. It is the best I have ever experienced on an RTA and I never thought as a (formerly) hardened RDA user that I would say this, but the flavour is on par with a dripper. That is the first RTA I have ever felt comfortable about saying that, and it truly surprised me, as I was expecting this to be another sub ohm cloud chasing tank. To test this theory, I put the exact same build in my Mutation X V3 RDA (I know it’s no flavour RDA!), used the same juice (South Coast Vapes Nipple Juice), and I’m going to say the flavour on the Goblin was superior.

Another truly impressive feat is that I have had no leaks with the Youde Goblin. That’s right, NONE at all. I’ve carried it around in my pocket, left it lying on its side and not a single drop has leaked out. That is really impressive for an RTA, I am used to leaks from them, but that definitely impressed me massively.

Once you get around the small niggles with the build quality and get this bad boy going, you have, in my eyes, the premiere budget RTA on the market right now. Previously, my favourite sub ohm RTA was the Orchid V6, but the Youde Goblin has it well and truly beat on all aspects. For flavour I haven’t tried an RTA like it. With the airflow wide open it chucks huge clouds. It provides more than enough bang for buck when you compare the price to more established RTA’s on the market, and it hits like the 9.10 from Tokyo! It is one of the hardest hitting tanks on the market, does it ever live up to the ‘tank’ description, and like a Challenger MK2 it’s robust, powerful and punches well above its weight!

PotV purchased this item from BA Vapes.  There is a competition to win a Goblin here, competition closes May 14th 2015.

Dave Junglist is co-owner of Planet of the Vapes and has been vaping since 2015.  He spent his early years with his head in a bass bin and was a very committed and experienced smoker.  He had his first cigarette at the age of 13 and just knew it was for him.  He did stop briefly with the aid of patches but reverted quickly and became a ‘secret’ smoker, working hard to keep his weak will from the attention of his family.  Vaping made an honest man of him and for this he is forever thankful. He has been involved in websites since completing a degree in Environmental Science in the late nineties.  At that time there was pretty much no contact with computers but on joining the regular workforce and deciding that the world-wide-web was the future he blagged his first job as a web designer and never looked back. As you would expect from a junglist, Dave likes his beats and is most comfortable when the bass is wobbly.
