This was my very first RDA, which I chose after doing a bunch of research on the best RDAs for beginners, which is probably a search term most people use when deciding to use their first RDA.
This was a popular RDA when it came out in mid-2014 and it was still somewhat popular at the time I bought it, which was in early 2015.
I did an embarrassing review of this two years ago, which you’ll find here if you want to check it out.
I still remember getting this and thinking about how sleek it looked. I couldn’t believe the quality of this RDA for only $12. That’s an amazing price for an authentic RDA, especially in 2015.
Smok Caterpillar Specs:
- Stainless Steel
- 10 small airflow holes, 5 on each side
- An adjustable airflow ring
- Flathead post screws with grips to hand-tighten
- Decent sized deck
After brushing the dust off and using this atomizer again, I still feel like this is a decent RDA. Compare to the RDA’s of today, it’s extremely basic, but it works. Compared to an RDA like the Goon, the flavor is muted, but it’s not too bad.
Does it stand the test of time? In short, no. But this was a cool RDA back in the day.
