VapeWild Thought's & Reviews
The Wotofo Recurve RDA is an amazing little piece of gear. First off, it’s an absolutely gorgeous piece of hardware. The curved design is just an awesome aesthetic.The internals are nice, too. I like how easily the coils nest into the RDA as well as how perfectly the airflow holes are directed at the coils. I’ve seen a number of RDA’s where there is ample airflow but it’s not directed in the best way - and the Recurve nails it. It’s also a flavor machine. Every e-liquid I dripped onto it was bursting with tastiness. Every note and hint came through clearly on my taste buds, so it did not disappoint in that department.
The Not So Dope
While the Recurve hits in a lot of areas it does have some misses (albeit only a couple). First things first, it IS a squonk RDA but does state that it can be used as a regular RDA. I will state this, if you use it as a regular RDA - be prepared to drip…A LOT. Once you pop off that top cap you’ll realize that it was built with squonking in mind and sqounking only. While it can be used as a regular dripper, it is devoid of any type of well. So if you decide to use it as a standard RDA, be prepared to carry plenty of e-liquid along with you. The other downside - although miniscule - is the top cap. I find trying to put it back on like putting a USB cable into the port. You have a 50% chance of nailing it or having it stick. Once its on its pretty snug and works seamlessly. I’m sure they had the assembly figured for sqounkers in mind so removing the top cap repeatedly wasn’t in their design plans, but when you market it as something that can be used as both - it can become a bit tedious.
In the end when it comes to the Wotofo Recurve RDA, I love this little chuck monster. It’s a cloud-creating, flavor-pumping vape dream. If you can get over the minor gripes I’ve listed above you’ll fall in love with this little guy just like I did.
The Wotofo Recurve BF RDA is a 24mm RDA that’s a one of a kind single coil RDA with a unique deck design and airflow control to help create a flavor that is out of this world!
One of the more fascinating things about this deck is while the full diameter is 24mm, the building surface is 22mm wide. The half-pipe shaped walls that surround the single coil build deck allow for a more directed airflow which funnels the vapor upwards and reducing the distance the vapor has to travel, creating a much more robust flavor. While this is a quad terminal postless deck, the 1mm front to back post holes are milled into the walls to allow for any of those crazy huge Clapton builds! Just in case you were concerned that you wouldn’t be able to hold any juice in yourvape cotton for these huge builds, this RDA has a 4mm juice well.
The Wotofo Recurve RDA has a distinct look to the deck due to the hourglass-shaped cap that they designed. The curved cap isn’t going to have too much impact on the general performance of the RDA but it does allow for you to turn the cap and pull it off easier. The 810 fitted cap comes in either Gold, Black, Gun-metal, Blue, Stainless steel, or Rainbow. You will also get an 810 resin drip tip along with a replacement frosted 810 drip tip.
This RDA also comes with a gold-plated 510 squonk pin pre-installed as Wotofo designed the Recurve specifically with that feature in mind. The honeycomb design of the air holes will allow you to fill up to the air holes with little to no leakage! Even when you’re not using the squonking ability the airflow is smooth as can be. Additionally, if squonking isn’t your thing, a standard 510 connection pin is included in the box as well!
All things considered, this RDA is ahead of the curve when it comes to the quality of decks and sets a new standard on flavor and quality!

I decided after 7 years of vaping to finally get into squonking. I was told by many people that single coil set ups was where its at for single battery squonkers. SO... I picked the one that looked the easiest to build and the hardest to make leak. I was right (im a genius)
I have squonked the ever loving S#*t outta this little bugger, not a drop has come out of the airflow holes. The flavor is really good. It is super easy to put coils in. If you are considering picking this thing up, just buy it. Its 16 BUCKS for crying out loud!!
Where is the QA?
Posted by Scott on Sep 22nd 2018
First one received had metal shavings stuck within the post structures and one of the post holes was not drilled out all the way. Along with these issues the RDA showed other signs of damage as well. VapeWild was awesome and sent another one out. Second one received had a stripped screw installed, took way too long to get it out. Once out I replaced the screw but it did not stop there. The top cap would not fit on, tried to use juice to make it fit around the o-rings. Matched up notches but still did not fit. Took the top cap from my first damage Recurve and it fit on better, but still very difficult to put on. I then measure the two inner diameters of the new and old top cap....they have two different inner diameters. VapeWild is amazing and I will continue to shop with them but Wotofo, that is another story.
This has good flavor but...

I bought the recurve because I heard amazing things about it and i wasnt disappointed. It has phenomenal flavor and vapor production and it is by far the easiest deck ive ever built on. Being a single coil deck doesnt really make it easier because I run my pulse 24 on a single coil. Its easy because I dont have to measure my leads and pray i got it right. It's got a comfy drip tip and it looks like it belongs on my squonk device. My one gripe with it is that it leaks like a sieve. There were a lot of reviewers who were adamant about how they were hard pressed to get this thing to leak unless you over squonked. I barely booped my bottle and it's come out the front of it and all over the fire button to my pulse 80w. Twice. That is literally the only thing I have thats negative and that could be that i wicked it wrong and didnt put enough cotton. We'll see as I use it more. Other than that its a solid little banger.
My current favorite squonking RDA
Posted by Gary Joseph on Sep 12th 2018
I already had one of these and just bought two more from Vape Wild to replace my Nudge 22 RDAs.
The Recurve is a breeze to build and works very well on either a single battery mechanical squonk mod or a regulated squonker. Build quality is excellent - solid stainless steel vs the aluminum cap on the Nudge 22. Flavor and vapor are very good, and is very hard to over-squonk the Recurve - it has never leaked no matter how hard I squonk.
Lastly, Vape Wild was a pleasure - fast shipping and great pricing. Overall, very pleased.

this is the second recurve i bought from you and like it. the only problem is when i entered the scratch label id wotofo didnt recognize this as a legitimate id
Flavor for weeks!
Posted by Mike on Aug 26th 2018
Tried a lot of single coil RDAs and this is one of the best out there especially for the price. Excels at squonking as well. Definitely reccomend picking one up!
i cannot put this down
Posted by Sean on Aug 17th 2018
i simply cannot stop vaping on this atty. all my other attys are just now sitting around doing nothing, acting really jealous of the recurve. i dream about vaping on it and what flavorful adventures we will have.
build quality is solid. i really love that the top cap is thick AF, and that the whole RDA weighs something. it is substantial. the drip tip is super comfortable, possibly the best my lips have wrapped themselves around. the deck is beautiful, like a half pipe just waiting to get shredded on. it practically builds itself. no guessing about coil leg length, coil height, nothing. airflow is sexy smooth. no matter what setting you put it on. flavor is through the roof. possibly the best single coil rda made.
this is a squonker, no doubt. i drip on it because i haven't gotten a squonk mod yet. but i will. just for this. depending on your build, it can get hot on your lips. aesthetically, on it's own, it is a beautiful atty. however, it is a little hard to find a mod that this will look perfect on. it doesn't even look good on the recurve mod IMO, because that mod is ugly AF. get this rda. you need it. trust
Buy this RDA!!!!
Posted by RDA Virgin on Aug 15th 2018
This is going to be a wordy review so jump to the tl;dr at the bottom if you would like. This is my very first RDA and I couldn’t be happier. Mike did such an amazing job designing this. The coil rods make it super easy to cut the proper length of the coils and placing the coils is also easy. I use a flathead on the screws instead of a regular screw driver to reduce the issue of stripping the screws. I do not own a squonk mod yet and this RDA is designed for squonking especially because the juice wells are not that large. However, I’m running it like an RDA with the regular 510 pin and it’s doing great. I have stuck to tanks and RTAs because I didn’t like the idea of having to keep dripping juice but wow, people are right RDAs are way more flavorful. It’s like I’m truly tasting all my juices for the first time with this RDA. I own a big baby beast tank, Herakles RTA (could not figure out how to make it not leak), and Zeus dual RTA (no leaking but no flavor despite different wicking methods and different coils). I love that it is single coil (main reason I bought it) because I was tired of cutting, pulsing/glowing, adjusting, and wicking dual coils, plus it cuts costs. I would watch video reviews of ejuices I own and the reviewer would talk about how delicious it is and I kept wondering why I wasn’t getting the amazing flavor they are talking about. The answer, three letters... RDA. The only problem I have had so far is a little spit back which is my fault because I am a noob to RDAs and sometimes overdrip because I’m terrified to experience the dreaded dry hit. Also it is extremely quiet compared to my RTAs. I get some pops and a fair amount of crackling from my Zeus dual RTA but this thing is so quiet sometimes I wonder if it is even firing but then I blow out, taste all the flavor, and see the massive clouds and I know it’s performing how it should.
TL;DR: amazing design, amazing flavor, super easy to build on and wick, single coil so you can vape faster and not fiddle with m dual coils, lots of vapor. I am extremely impressed
One of the best single coil squonk RDAs currently available
Posted by Sam C on Aug 3rd 2018
I have been using this daily for several months. This, and Nudge 22, and the Asmodus C4 are the best squonk toppers I've used.
I rotate through these three RDAs regularly, but always come back to the Recurve.
Extremely simple to build if you use the included tool to trim the coil leg length. Simply trim legs, drop in the coil, screw it down, and quickly center it and it's perfectly placed.
Great vapor production, extremely smooth airflow, and incredible flavor. This produces a better vape than many double coilers I've tried.

Great product! Also, very useful for when my coils burn up and I'm waiting for more. Just what I was looking for.
Posted by Jay on Jul 14th 2018
Been using this daily for a week or so now and haven't found anything to complain about. The only thing I've had to get used to is squonking it more frequently than other RDAs, but that's not a big deal. Flavor is amazing. I was concerned about how restrictive the airflow might be, but it's perfect. Never thought I'd ever like a single coil RDA this much! I have a bunch of different RDAs, only two of which I liked enough to buy another, and I definitely see myself getting another Recurve. Just a great product.

I love it. Easy to build on, easy to squonk with...great flavor and the rainbow color is beautiful. 5 stars!
Great single coil
Posted by webert joseph on Jul 11th 2018
building is super easy, flavor quality is good,my squonk pin came in messed up so i cant swap it out,better as a squonker tho. juice wells are small but it doesnt easily leak out of the airway cause of the base setup.
Perfect for squonking
Posted by Anthony on Jul 10th 2018
If you’re into squonking then this is a must buy. You don’t have to worry about over squonking and the flavor is amazing. Goes great with any single battery squonker, have mine on the pulse 80 watt.
Don't hesitate buy this RSQ
Posted by Chester Johnson on Jun 25th 2018
This is an awesome product. Would buy another!
Great piece just one problem!
Posted by Paul on Jun 25th 2018
Look this thing is awesome. Everything about this rda is just spectacular. The quality it great and the coils they give are a nice plus too. But........ This is just because I'm very picky with my stuff.... Yes when you squonk or drip it won't leak as long as you don't tilt it and pull on it. But even when you do that it leaves a little bit of juice there and it can end up coming out. And I can't stand when juice comes out of the air ports. It's a thing I jusyt completely hate. So this rda does do that. When you go and look at reviews yes you can squonk all the way to the top of the coil abd nothing will come out of the air ports. But with me and the little bit left over that most of the time does come out one way or another I can't give it a 5. But if people aren't picky about that aspect of the rda then go and buy it...... It really really is a great piece. Just my pet peeve.
Good single cool rda
Posted by Jason on Jun 24th 2018
Good single cool rda. Good flavor and very easy to build. Like the look and drop tip on this thing.
Posted by Jenny Evans on Jun 23rd 2018
I love this RDA!! The flavor is amazing! The fact that it uses one coil is awesome as well. Only complaint I have is the drip tip I got with it is ugly. But that's not VW fault.
Puts a Curve in your swerve
Posted by Unknown on Jun 17th 2018
The flavor that this gives you is absolutely amazing. Its very easy to build on took me all of 5 minutes and I was vaping away.The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because Its a bit more restrictive than I like an rda to be. Other than that. Its a nice RDA!
