The Vandy Vape Capstone RDA, is the latest RDA from Vandy Vape to hit the market. It’s a dual coil with a somewhat unique single post build deck with a sloped design that kind of looks like a pyramid.

Vandy Vape Capstone RDAI say somewhat unique because i’ve seen similar decks with the Augvape Templar and Dotmod Dot RDAs. Both coils need to be installed at the same time but it’s a pretty easy deck to build on just like those 2. It’s close to the dot then the templar.

They also include a lead cutting tool so you can precut the leads as well clearly marked on the 7mm hole. The tool is nice for postless decks for sure but not really needed here as you can eyeball it pretty easily with a wide margin of error due to the large single clamp.

I do appreciate the tool though and it’s useful for many RDAs so hard to complain about a free tool being included. The post however is just massive way too massive IMO leading to very limited build space. 2.5mm is the max ID you can really fit in this RDA and since many people use 3MM or bigger it’s a tough pill to swallow. 2mm is really the ideal size to have a little bit of room.

If you squeeze 3mm in there it’ll cause your juice dripped or squonked to roll right over the coils and out of the ariflow. They should have made the post a little thinner and the RDA 25mm to add the extra room needed. It’s a large oversight IMO.

The squonking mechanism is pretty nice. Much like the dot RDA where it comes from the top and cascades down over the coils, the Capstone RDA has the squonk hole in the middle of the post where it can hit the coils on the way down to the juice well.

Much like all vandy vape atomizers this one is loaded with accessories. It includes the 2 top caps (metal and a clear frosted one) a frosted sloped 810 drip tip, a standard delrin 510 drip tip, and a 510 adapter so you can use any of your own tips on it as well. The included coil lead cutting tool is great as well. Also as usual plenty of spare o-rings and parts too.

Final Thoughts 

The Capstone RDA is very well built overall. It feels like a good quality and a lot for your money like most Vandy Vape products, but overall the lack of space in the build deck is very annoying. So far i’m not very impressed with this RDA. I still have time to spend with it before a review and other builds to try out but i feel like this should have been a beta because with a few tweaks it could be a really nice RDA but as it stands now seems like a very limited RDA without much usefulness in the market.

I started vaping in late 2011 to quit chewing tobacco. over the past few years i got a lot more into the hobby side and buying and collecting a lot of gear. Fed up with the lack of good fair reviews i decided to start doing reviews late 2016 and haven’t looked back. I enjoy providing people with technical reviews that are fair and unbiased and from a place of knowledge to help them spend their money wisely.
