The Iris Mesh RDA By Cthulhu Previewed

The Cthulhu Iris Mesh RDA is a new release promising to be a great performing Mesh based RDA.

Cthulhu – is hard to type and harder to pronounce – have been busy lately with their controversial Squonk Genius and Hastur MTL RTA.

As you may have seen a new trend in attys is using Mesh as a heating surface. It has more surface area to atomise the E-liquid therefore should give a better performance.

On the Iris Mesh this is a vertical mesh build – so your mesh stands up from the deck.

iris mesh single mesh buildYou can use a single mesh wrapped in a circle or two pieces of mesh by turning the support posts.

iris mesh dual mesh buildThe wicking is puzzling me – the Cthulhu website suggests you

“shove a whole ball, folded in half pad or massive amount of bacon at your posts. When compacted it should take up most of the room in the RDA touching the deck and going well above the posts. Please make sure cotton touch every point of the mesh”.

So there you go basically stuff as much cotton in there as you can!

You can choose from two colours – Black and Stainless Steel.
