The Goon 25mm is the fourth iteration in the 528 Custom line-up: there was the V1, the low profile, and the V1.5. The RDA measures 25mm across and is 29.6mm from tip to base (22.5mm from base to top, without tip). The juice well is 5mm deep. It is advertised as having a larger build space both vertically and horizontally than the previous versions. My measurements don’t quite bear this out: the diameter is a millimetre wider than the V1.5 but the V1.5 is 31.5mm from tip to base and 24.5mm from base to top. In any case, substantial build space. The internal diameter of the deck is 21mm and the clamps are 4.5mm wide.
It comes with two very sturdy stainless steel clamp-style posts with hex grubs installed and a stainless steel bridge post. The clamp-style are ideally suited for handling those beefier builds. I’ve got a couple of 3.5 mm Staggered Framed Staples installed for reference. An allen key is included with the package as are four Phillips screws, a squonk pin, and extra o-rings. The screws sit flush in the clamps for a nice, clean look.
They’ve returned to the V1 airflow with this release and there are three good-sized holes on each side of the cap. The airflow is fully adjustable allowing you to leave it wide open, close it off to suit your personal preference, or accommodate single coil builds.
It also features a domed interior top cap which is supposed to enhance flavour. There is also an inner ultem sleeve to cut down on heat to the drip tip. It features a wide bore chuff-style drip tip.
They’ve dropped the price point making it more accessible to a wider market, retained some of the most-loved features of previous versions, and added some really decent improvements.
