    Initial Impressions and features
    When I first got this tank, the 1st thing that stood out for me was the colored glass. I love how we are seeing more companies with colored tanks, glass, resin tips etc coming standard. People like it so give us what we want right? I love the fill style as well. It’s a spring loaded cap that you push down and do a quarter turn and it pops open easy. No threading to worry about. It has 2 big fill holes at the top good for any style bottle. The bottom air has 3 holes and is on a stopper. The tank itself has some weight to it and feels like it’s really good quality and built well.

    Coil Performance
    Lets talk about the coils. 1st i want to talk about all the coils i’ve been vaping that are compatible as well. I have cleito coils (not compatible but same range) , ello coils, gnome coils, procore coils, ijoy exo x coils, baby beast coils, and fantasy mini coils. So a lot to compare them to in the same range. The 1st one i used was branded as the KTR .4 ohm coil. Mind you I have a review sample and things change, now it’s called the W2 coil. It’s rated best 45-65 watts. Personally I found it best at 60. The flavor is above average and it lasted me about 2.5 weeks so coil life is well above average. Next up was the KTR .15 coil which is now called the W8 coil. I vaped it for 10 days and it’s still going strong. I’d expect at least 2 weeks out of it as well. So again coil life above average. It’s rated best 60-80 watts personally i found it best at 80-90 watts and found the flavor to also be above average. Overall i’d say it’s one of the better coils for this watt range in both flavor and life. Personally i consider 1 week average coil life. Anything more is a bonus, anything less is below average. I do find the coils “best” range to be accurately rated. There are 2 more options I didn’t get the W4 (best 45-60) and W6 (best 70-90) I consider the range on this tank 60-90 watts but you can also use a compatible coil to go a bit higher or lower if you wanted to.

    Overall Impressions
    Overall I was very impressed with this tank. It’s another good mid wattage tank in a sea of them. If there is one thing companies seem to have nailed, it’s the mid range sub ohm tank. There are a ton of good ones. There is another feature where coils shouldn’t be able to get stuck as well. Personally i never have issues with stuck coils and this is no exception, i did have a buddy get a coil stuck though on his so it’s worth mentioning that it’s not impossible to get a coil stuck. The top fill method is innovative and works great. One of my favorites for sure. Love the quality and colored glass and the coils are above average in both flavor and life.

    Pros:
    • Flavor Above average
    • Coil Life Above average
    • Colored glass
    • Top FIll Design
    • Build Quality
    • No leaks
    • 510 drip tip compatible
    • Coil compatibility with other brands
    Cons:
    • 2 ml capacity
    • Included drip tip looks bulky
    • no RBA deck
    Conclusion
    So with all that said, do I recommend this tank? I don’t like doing the hard yes or no but this one leans towards the yes. If you're in the market for a mid watt range sub ohm tank it’s one of the better one’s on the market. I’d consider it above average. This will make my sheet as well
