The Profile RDA is a collaboration between Wotofo and Mr.JustRight1. It’s a 24mm RDA with a super low profile look, a honeycomb style airflow and a spring loaded center block. These design factors, in combination with its dual clamp build deck, make the Profile perfect for use with mesh coils. It can also be used with regular coils as well though.
A lot of vapers call the Profile the best flavor RDA ever. When I heard this, I knew that I had to test it for myself. Could this really be the one RDA to rule them all?

Design & Build Quality
The Profile is a rather short and squat RDA. It’s about 28mm tall with the drip tip and 24mm in diameter. It’s got a simple design free of any fancy notches or cutouts. The only real outer design is the Profile logo on the mid cap which looks like it’s emerging from a cloud of vapor.
I got the blue color and, in my opinion, it’s the nicest color that they offer. The Profile comes in over a dozen colors though so you might a color that you like better. The paint quality is really good and it gives off a nice shine. However, it’s a bit of a fingerprint magnet so it quickly ends up looking dirty.
There’s a small indent/gap between the body of the RDA and the top cap. It’s an intentional design as the top cap is still snug but this makes it easy to get a grip and remove it. I hate having to struggle to remove the top cap so thank goodness for this.
You get two 810 drip tips with the Profile unless you get the frosted black, frosted clear or ultem. Those colors only come with a single drip tip. The resin drip tip matches nicely with the color that you get. The other drip tip is a frosted gray color and it sits a bit higher than the resin. I preferred using the resin as it keeps you closer to the tank and just looks better.
The overall design of this RDA is extremely simple but still looks good.
There are 19 small holes on each side of the Profile. These are arranged in three vertically stacked rows and the way that they’re positioned lines them right up with the deck for airflow to hit the coil.
Turning the top cap allows you to adjust the airflow but it’s a little difficult to see what you’re doing. I had trouble seeing exactly where my airflow was being adjusted to and I often just took off the top cap to check where it was lined up.
Turning the top cap will first close off the top row of airflow holes. If you continue to turn it will close off the bottom two rows at the same time.
With the airflow fully open it’s a nice draw but a bit too airy for my liking. Instead, I liked using the Profile with just the top row of airflow holes closed. This gives it a bit of restriction while still allowing enough airflow to hit the coil. There’s no whistling or turbulence and the airflow is almost completely silent.
There are two wide clamps on this build deck and they’re meant to accommodate mesh coils. Although this deck can be used with a regular round coil, I think that it should be used as a strictly mesh RDA; there are better build decks for single round coils.
The clamps on the deck are sized perfectly to fit the included mesh strips. The clamps are held in place by combo Flathead/Phillips screws that are good quality and easy to work with. A few twists loosens the clamps up enough to insert the mesh.
The center block of this deck is what differentiates it from other mesh RDAs. Wotofo and Mr.JustRight1 knew that the biggest pitfall of mesh was that it needed to be in full contact with the cotton, otherwise you would get a nasty dry hit. This was difficult to achieve on regular decks because the cotton would sag down once it was saturated by ejuice and lose contact with the mesh.
This center block solves that problem. It’s spring loaded and pushes up on the cotton to ensure that it stays in contact with the mesh, thus preventing dry hits. It’s an innovative idea and it’s worked flawlessly for me during my testing.
Building on the Profile RDA
Building on the Profile is straightforward but there are a few tricks to the trade when working with mesh. First, take one of the included strips of mesh and shape it into a semi-circle around the included mesh shaping rod. Make sure that it’s a smooth circle and take care not to crease or bend it. The mesh has to be a smooth semi circle or else you’ll get hot spots.
Once the mesh has been shaped you can loosen up the screws and drop it into the clamps. Keeping it level will give you the best results and this is made easier by the blocks on the inside of the clamps. These will stop your mesh from dropping in too far. You can hold on to the mesh while you clamp it down but try to do so lightly.
Next is wicking. Mesh coils need a lot of cotton and the Wotofo agleted cotton that you get with this RDA is perfect because its super thick. You’ll feel some resistance threading it through and under the mesh but that’s alright. You can push down on the center block using the cotton to make it a little easier to thread through.
Lastly, I cut my wicks just to the bottom of the build deck and then tucked them in. That’s really all there is to it.
When built and wicked correctly the Profile is an absolute flavor monster. Wotofo say that it “reveals all of the layers in your ejuice” and I would have to agree with them. The flavor is full, accurate and in-your-face. It’s also a very smooth draw at 55W with the top airflow row closed. I don’t have any negative feedback to report as there’s been no spitback, popping, or even leaking in the time that I’ve used it.
The recommended range for the mesh coil is between 40-60W and I had the best experience from 45-55W. 55W seemed to be the sweet spot. Mesh isn’t a coil that you want to push past its limits or else you risk a disgusting dry hit. I played it safe and stayed within the recommended ranges and it was more than good enough.
The center block seems to do what it’s supposed to. I’ve had no semblance of a dry hit so the block must be pushing up on the cotton enough to keep it in contact.
Squonking is where it’s at with this RDA. Dripping works great too, don’t get me wrong. It’s just a cumbersome task to drip all the time. The Profile is an ejuice hungry tank and I was dripping so much ejuice that I found it better to just squonk. I was squonking liberally and didn’t have any leaking so it’s a capable squonk RDA for sure.
Wotofo and Mr.JustRight1 got it right with the Profile RDA. It solves all of the problems that previous mesh RDAs had by incorporating the center block. The flavor is accurate and full and the wicking is great. My only issue is with seeing where your airflow is adjusted to but this is more of a minor inconvenience than a deal breaker.
If you like mesh RDAs you’ll love the Profile. Even if you haven’t used a mesh RDA before, the flavor is so good that it’s worth trying.
