Taifun GT 2 RBA Clone by Infinite
The Taifun GT 2 RBA clone by Infinite comes with a handful of improvements over the original Taifun GT. These improvements have launched this tank into a higher echelon among single coil Rebuildable Tank Atomizers (RTAs). The Taifun GT 2 is well-suited for single coil builds. In the first version of the Taifun GT, the inner tube has to be removed in order to get better airflow. The re-engineered Taifun GT 2 will now has a larger bore hole. When you couple that with the addition of an airflow control ring, the GT 2 achieves far superior airflow on each draw without leaking. The tank itself has also been upgraded. Doing away with the plastic tanks of old, the Taifun GT 2 clone now sports a frosted Pyrex glass tank with a stainless steel outer shield tube for protection. It holds 5mL of your favorite all day vape. Refilling is done just by unscrewing the base while it is upside down. The GT 2 also allows you to rebuild your coil without having to dump your juice out which is a plus for any tank atomizer. Pick yours up today and get swept away by the Taifun (ty-phoon) of vapor!

I've read a bunch of reviews, and people swore by this atomizer, so I decided to give it a try. The threading is excellent, it works well once you learn how to use it. There are a couple of things I don't like or don't understand about this particular clone. Ideally, you want to have a glass tank, but I got it elsewhere, so it's not a big deal, but its as advertised. The clone has a weird 510 pin. You have to make sure it sticks out, because if you screw it fully in, the contact is lost. However, when I leave it out, when I unscrew it from an atomizer, the pin unscrews as well, so you need a screwdriver to screw it back it. It's not a big deal, but it's not tool free if you need to change a tank.
Regarding the learning curve and design. I get now the argument of Kayfun vs Taifun. People must be sticking in giant wicks into Kayfuns if they have no problems building Taifun for the first time. I'm more of a Kayfun person. I like much less wick and pure taste of juice vs vapory feel of a Taifun. It took me a few days to get it not to leak. You need a LOT of cotton in the holes of a chimney not to get liquid leaking inside. I probably used 5X more cotton than Kayfun or RDA's and Aquas. The cotton has to be thick on the holes in the chimney. I am not crazy about this design.
Also you need to raise chimney for the top tube to push it down. That and wicking with a lot more cotton took care of the leaking, and I even had to open juice control flow (which btw you have to fiddle with, and it's also a design flaw), because I over-tightened it while battling the constant leaks. Now it works well, but the vapor is a bit too "wet" for my taste. It doesn't gurgle nor leak now, but it's clearly vapory and a bit too over-saturated for my taste.
Overall, it's an interesting experience as it's a different atomizer in both build and taste. Coils are super easy, wicking is trickier, having to adjust chimney is a design flaw. Is it my favorite atomizer? No. But I do see how people love it. If you like thick wet vapor (hot with lower resistance) then it could be your cup of tea. I personally love Kayfuns and Aqua, but it's personal taste.

Easy build with 28 ga 7/8 wraps on a 2mm bit (1.4 ohms) @ 11.5 / 12 watts with japanese organic cotton - Good flavor! Only issues are there needs to be a detent for the height on the chimney to deck base as it's hard to get a feel for the correct height & the air flow ring to the base o ring tears & I can't seem to find any replacements
