I really like the look of the Legend, it’s a beautiful RDA, and you don’t often see such an ambitious design as with the deck of the Legend. This is the type of design can be ground-breaking if implemented correctly. Unfortunately, in this case it seems like a solution in search of a problem.
While I doubt that the fate of YSTAR hangs on the success of the Legend, I really wanted its most unique feature to work — it’s the kind of risk-taking that drives innovation in vaping. At the same time, I also believe that these issues should be fixed in the design lab, not discovered by the end user.
Without the signature drip canopy, the Ystar Legend is one solid RDA even though it can get hot with lower resistance, high-mass builds. The issue is that the most unique feature of the RDA falls flat. But as an RDA without that one thing, it’s not much to complain about. Even with that one complaint, it’s still nitpicking.
The bottom line is this: If you are cool with dripping down both sides of the RDA, which is no big deal, the Legend might be worth consideration. It’s a well-crafted RDA with a quality look and feel that offers some varied airflow options, and performs quite well at mid-range wattage (50-60 watts) — when fed properly, of course.
