The Link RDA is an absolutely gorgeous piece of craftsmanship that rivals the quality of authentic House of Hybrids equipment. I recently purchased some ZNA clone packages that were bundled with the Link RDA and an extra 2 hole topcap for use with dual coil builds (or just for better airflow). While the clones are craptastic (my clone review should be out in a couple of days), the Link RDAs are exactly the opposite. It is a crying shame that Steam Monkey LLC is getting out of the Z2 market, because these little beauties are gems. I built out the Link with a 28ga, 4/5 wrap, around a loop of 2mm Ekowool (but it can also be built with cotton), which meters at exactly 1 ohm using the ZNA built in ohmmeter. This thing vapes like a beast and it works like a charm. Flavor is outstanding (I prefer the flavor from Ekowool over cotton).
It is Z2 threaded, and connected flawlessly to every HoH tube and device that I own. It looks beautiful on top of the ZNA clone, it’s a crying shame that the clone doesn’t actually work. It looks almost as good on my authentic HoH ZNA LDE, however it is a shiny silver that doesn’t work quite as well with the rose gold and gunmetal color scheme of the LDE. I am trying to find one of the newer gunmetal colored HoH topcaps, in the hopes that it will fit on the Link RDA and then it will look a lot better on the ZNA LDE.
If you want one of these things, then contact Steam Monkey right now, they are being closed out and will never return. The owner of Steam Monkey LLC told me that the costs to produce quality Z2 threaded gear is cost prohibitive and that is why he is getting out of making stuff for the Z2 standard. Steam Monkey LLC is being reconstructed around the newer and cheaper commodity devices, and the current stock of Z2 stuff is currently on closeout to make room for the new inventory. Once it’s gone, it’s gone forever.
As a final note, the only way to get the Link RDA from Steam Monkey is to purchase the ZNA clone package. Just be aware that you may end up with a dead or defective ZNA clone, but on the other hand, the whole package is selling now at the same price the Link was selling for a couple months ago. The package would have been a steal if the clones worked, but as it is, the value of the Link RDA makes it worth it in the end.
