528 Customs Goon V1.5 RDA Review


The Goon V1.5 RDA from 528 Customs is a revamped version of the highly acclaimed Goon RDA. It is the most similar to the original Goon RDA of all the RDAs in the Goon line. The Goon V1.5 RDA comes with some different features from its predecessor including an upgraded coil deck and larger airflow slots. It also comes with a squonk pin so you can use the RDA with a squonker mod. Like the first Goon RDA, the main selling point of the Goon V1.5 RDA is that it will give you awesome clouds and rich flavor. The build space of this RDA from 528 Customs is very large. This is one of the reasons why it is suitable for those who are new to dripping and rebuilding, provided you don’t mind the hefty price tag.

From the exterior, 528 Customs Goon V1.5 RDA looks exactly like the Goon RDA. It is not until you take the RDA apart that you will see the difference. The Goon V1.5 RDA has a diameter of 24mm like others in the Goon line. It is made of physical vapor deposition (PVD) coated stainless steel. It is available in stainless steel, black, gold, and rose gold color.

The Goon V1.5 RDA by 528 Customs comes with a 10mm wide bore 810 Delrin drip tip. The drip tip is large enough for you to drip e-juice directly on your coil heads without taking the entire thing apart. Under the RDA, you will find a gold-plated 510 connection with a brass pin for attaching it to a mod. As noted above, the Goon V.15 RDA comes with a squonk pin for all those who like to use squonkers. You can use this RDA with mechanical hybrid mods.

Like the Goon RDA, the Goon V1.5 RDA is made up of four parts. You have the drip tip, the top cap/airflow control sleeve, the main sleeve, and the coil deck. The drip tip of this RDA is half-inch wide. Like its predecessor, you will find the Goon logo on the main sleeve of this RDA. But instead of multiple airflow holes, the sleeve has two 12mm large airflow slots on its sides. The redesigned airflow system is one of the highlights of this RDA as more airflow means better flavor and bigger clouds.

The build deck of the Goon V1.5 RDA is visibly larger than that of the Goon RDA. It has a two-post clamp style build deck. The inside of the build deck measures 20mm. This means you will not struggle to fix your coils and wick them. The bridge posts, clamps, and screws on the build deck of the Goon V1.5 are made of stainless steel unlike that of the Goon RDA, which are gold-plated. Just like the original Goon, the Goon V1.5 comes with a thick clamp deck. You can choose between Phillips or flat head screws. The RDA also comes with a pack of hex screws. The screw heads are quite large, and there is a width of 44mm between them. The build deck is designed with PEEK insulation, and it has a 7mm deep juice well. You can choose to use a single or double coil build on this RDA.

One of the only issues that you may find with the 528 Customs Goon V1.5 RDA is that the stainless steel sleeve could get heated when you have been vaping at a high wattage for a long time.

You can get the 528 Customs Goon V1.5 RDA on Ultimate Vape Deals for $64.99. The RDA comes with some extra o-rings as well as Allen key screws. If you have used any of the RDAs in the Goon series and you loved it, then you will enjoy using the Goon V1.5 RDA.
