I got the black one with the red resin drip tip. The first thing I noticed about the Recurve is that it is heavy. Its weight makes it feel like a well-built RDA even before getting the top cap off. As for the top cap, the curvy design may not be for everyone, but I got used to it pretty fast. When it comes to the drip tips, the curves are addictive. I haven’t used any other drip tip for the last two weeks, and I don’t plan on doing so any time soon. I love them.
One of my favorite features on the Recurve is the top cap locking mechanism. You just set the top cap on the RDA and turn it until the notches lock on the build deck. That will center it to a fully open airflow. You can then adjust it, but more on that later. The top cap will also stop when turned fully in the other direction, making unscrewing the RDA a very easy process. I am a fan of locking mechanisms on drippers, they just make everyone’s life easier.
Not the biggest fan of the engraving on the side which seems to gather dust like a magnet. It’s also hard to clean with all those thin lines involved. Maybe it will look alright on the other editions, but for my black one, I just wish they weren’t there. Outside of this minor inconvenience, I am very happy with the build quality and design of the Recurve.
