    Hey gang,
    I'm looking to get some new mods. Currently, I vape on Kayfun v4's (clones) and a Hurricane (also a clone) running around .7 - 1.0 ohms. My mods are Aspire CF sub ohm batteries.

    I'd like to get some new ones, regulated, that are in a tube form factor. I like the form factor; they slip easily into my pocket. A secondary desire is to get something that can do temperature control, in the event I want to get into that at some point in the future. Also, price is a consideration. Things like the Provari's are way out of my price range.

    I've done some research, watched Phil Busardo's reviews, at it seems like all the ones I've found are either no longer available, poorly made, crazy expensive, or not available in the US. I checked out the Vamo and it's various versions, but the thing is hella long and a good number of the reviews I've read say it's made very cheaply. Been eyeing the eVic supreme, but it's difficult to find one and they're all close to $100, which is also out of my price range. I'm thinking of something like the eVic VTC mini or Wismec Presa 75w, but in a tube style. Anyone have recommendations? Thanks!

    Edit - I didn't see the 100$ cap
    If you can find one, they have the pioneer for you 7-22 and 7-30 that are in the inexpensive category and very good or the joyetech evic supreme

    Not many cheap-ish good regulated tube mods with TC out there. In fact, I can't think of one, you will probably have to sacrifice TC. The dicodes mods are excellent, but out of your budget range.

    If you sacrifice the TC option, you've got the vamos, a couple SMOK ones, sigelei has a 30W tube mod, and innokin SVD 2.0 I've seen super cheap on clearance (under $30).

    CFiber 100watts is also nice and cheap, but, sadly, no tc.

    Thanks for the links.
    As I said, the Provari's are really nice but way out of my price range, as are the Dicodes.

    The Lavatube 3 seems to not be available anywhere, the page is blank when you visit it and only the 2.5 shows on the website's menu.

    Seems the various Vamo versions and the BEC pro are the only ones in my price range, but they've both had questionable reviews.
    I edited to add a pioneer4you 7-22 and 7-30 you'll have to google to find them though. Also the old jotetech evic supreme may be available.
    You might want to try modtrader or another classified sections to find some used. Or, if you don't want high power, provape is selling the old p2.5s brand new and inexpensive.

    I may end up just going with a Wismec Presa. It's not a tube, but it's fairly slender. Cheap, does TC and is USB up-gradable. Seems all the regulated tubes are really long, nearly a full inch longer with an 18650 than what I'm using now, which kinda counters the slenderness of the tube. I'd love to be able to swing the new Provari, but at two hunge it's not feasible.
