The Goon is a 25mm RDA manufactured by the USA company 528 Custom Vapes. Coming in both matte black and stainless steel, this particular RDA has a magnificent aesthetic. The stainless steel engineering from head to toe is near perfection. This is one of the best USA designed RDA’s I have had the pleasure of vaping on, and hot damn is it divine.
The innovative dual post bridge clamps make building a breeze. I had no problem installing my large coils in this bad boy. Everything is held into place by four top knurled hex screws. On either side of your Goon 25mm RDA will be three air slots allowing for heaps of smooth airflow. The deck also features a relatively deep design catering for a decently sized juice well.
Your knurled top cap and o-ring provides great resistance and fits snugly together. The ultem AFC ring that connects to your top cap has three identical airflow holes cut in the sides allowing you to fine tune your airflow as desired. Once you get your juice in there it can be a tad hard to see which airflow slots are open.
What the ultem AFC ring does provide is great heat resistance. Not as good as ceramic, but decent enough to not get lip burn while taking long hits. The delrin widebore 810 drip tip feels comfortable and aids in reducing the overall heat. Also the included copper plated 510 connection protrudes a fair amount and provides great conductivity.
What is this premium RDA going to cost you? Your looking at roughly $50 USD. I think this is a steal in contrast to other RDA’s on the market. While it is $20 or so dollars more expensive than its China counterparts. I think overall its well worth the extra money for an undeniably better vape. I have been using it non stop since receiving it and think the Goon 25mm RDA by 528 Custom Vapes is a great vaping investment.
528 Custom Vapes have gone down the unique high end packaging option with this RDA. Unlike your usual plastic and cardboard box you will receive a felt draw string pouch. It’s branded with both the Goon and the 528 Custom Vapes logo. Personally I would have preferred the material to be silk, to enhance the overall luxury of the product, but that’s only nit picking.
Inside you’ll find your Goon 25mm RDA and a bag of spares. No manual, warranty card or other various paraphernalia you usually get. I think this is a good thing considering the type of vapers that would buy this product and the price. Generally mid to advanced vapers don’t need instruction on how to build on an RDA.
