Hello and welcome to the all new Shtin review!
In case you missed the last review and want to know what the heck this section is about – well, here it is!
In this review, I’ll share my experience and thoughts on the Jenna bridge, and oh boy have I got some thoughts to share!
Without any further mambo jambo, let’s dive in.
The Jenna Bridge by Jai Haze Designs.
The dry stuff:
What is it?
RBA by a company called Jai Haze Designs, based in the USA. They did an RTA, an RDA, a mod, and are now doing their first Boro bridge.
I don’t care who made my shoes, or my phone, or my TV, whether they have a Patreon or what videos they put on YouTube, and the same goes for this – I will not get into the person behind it, 'cause I honestly don’t care.
The bridge is supposed to be “super innovative and one of a kind” due to its deck and airflow ring.
Standard bridge (deck, cap, chimney).
3 colour options (SS, DLC, Titanium).
Made in the US (I think).
Side airflow on both sides of the coil (similar to the Jenna RDA deck).
325 USD for the SS version, the other versions costs more (might cost less for the Jai Haze Patreons/subscribers/pagans)

Arrival and packaging
I got a link to the website in my email, 1-2 months after filling a G-Doc form that was posted in the FB group. The form said the cost would be ~250, the site showed 325… Curiosity won here, I pulled the trigger. Package was sent via UPS, ~1 week after, this… thing... was received. I thought it was a joke, or a rib, the package was super cheap considering the cost - no serial number, no note. Two additional spare screws and key in a bag along with one of the ugliest bridges I’ve ever seen. Scratch marks on the deck, no airflow pins, no 510 adapter as they are not needed, but the deck looks super interesting. No O-rings, but also nothing to hold the chimney section which is just waiting to get lost. As of now, I haven’t even started building it and I’m already annoyed; I swear the bridge is pointing at me and laughing, disrespectfully, judging me with its ugliness.
The deck is black coated something, and seems easy to build on despite being quite small. A 2.5mm ID coil is ideal, but a fatty 3mm isn’t. Reminds me of the Kerch deck, and the need to cut your coil leg to 1-2 mm - I'm using an MTN Fused Clapton coil, 5 wraps, 2.5mm ID. Legs straight, placing the coil, screwing the 0.9mm Allen screws, not really raising the coil a lot so the side airflow goes kind of side-bottom of the coil – nothing too complex here. I hate tiny Allen screws; they are the devil incarnated.
Cotton placement, like the Mobb, Kerch, and many others – pops out of the cap. Can be used with the airflow ring, can be used without it or wide open airflow (which is kinda like a 3.5mm airflow insert), but this might be a problem in the Proro with the airflow ring (haven’t tried it), you won’t be using an airflow ring if you’re using the Limelight Boro tank. Wicks very nicely - again, too much cotton is my go-to, I never learn.
Flavour is very good – coil, condensed chamber, can’t go wrong here. I haven’t felt any significant change with the side airflow, but the airflow is smooth (not Orbit-like smooth), not loud, no whistles, no leaking. Can be super tight or very loose RDL – depends on how you twist the airflow ring.
Performance, Pros, Cons, bottom line;
The scratches on the deck from the machining process is a serious downer, and there's no mechanism to hold the chimney which is a great way to annoy you when, for example, you wanna change your integrated tip and it just pops out. The postless deck is great, though, and I love how you don’t need to worry if the cap will short; building it really is super easy. Can’t use the airflow ring without a tool, you can’t turn it with your finger, you just can’t do it.
Coil placement - Super easy, cut the coil legs very short, slap the coil in, screw the screws, and that’s it.
Cotton - same as the Mobb, the Kerch, and many others.
Fitment - fits perfectly in any tank without the airflow ring, won’t work with the airflow ring on some tanks.
Airflow - not too smooth, not too loud, can be between super tight and very loose RDL
Flavour - bang on, performs very well, again - like any other great RBA - more depends on the coil I think. It doesn’t bring anything out of this world to the table, it’s not going to make you think of your life before the Jenna bridge and after, so don’t expect that.
Wicking - wicks great, really great.
Final Score & Thoughts;
Performance-wise this bridge is excellent, and that’s about it. I can’t shake the feeling that someone is just trolling users with this, due to some significant cons:
The cheap packaging.
Doesn’t come with a serial number.
Scratches on the deck.
Nothing to hold the chimney in place.
Super easy to build.
No adapter is needed.
No airflow insert is needed, super adjustable without it.
The high cost and the end result are part of the total disappointment from the Jenna bridge. M2 is better, Kilic is better, many better options out there. This one just feels like someone there was just trying to be a dumbass troll, instead of taking the potential here of doing something that could have been really great.
6/10 Shtin The Mans for this unworthy piece.
