Welcome to tonight’s LIVE VLOG 6/17/21! #Replaycrew! I’m blaming my YOYOY Patron MATTMMC for tonight’s VLOG gimmick. It’s not a VLOG is a GLOV! It’s Backward! DRAWKCAB! Regardless of those shenanigans…
We will be going through a whole mess of segments tonight including Beer, Retro vaping, Liquid tasting, News, Music, and honestly a whole lot more BACKWARD! or DRAWKCAB!. Trying to keep that positive energy going through the end of this week. Tonight’s VLOG will be a much more reasonable length. Gate is open, come on in.
BUILD ‘n CHILL YEAH!! Here we go, everyone! We are going to try Aliens again today. Triple 28g core / 38g alien over it, All TMNI80. Got to spend some time this weekend getting some tips and help from a few YOYOY Patrons. Feeling good about today. Assuming I’ll fail again, but really hoping I don’t. I also got a building care package from my sponsor Twisted Messes. So that might help out today too!! xxz
If we can get enough Alien wire for a coil, we are going to put it in the HAAR RTA this afternoon. Got this as a gift from Mr. Jonathan K! really excited to try this RTA out. Even if we can’t get any useable Alien wire, I’m still going to do some claptons for this RTA. Gate is open, come on in.
TwistedMesses is my new wire sponsor, so all the wire being used today is Twisted Messes NI80.
I don’t often get to review “cool” RE: Non-China stuff so much anymore, so forgive me for taking this Kronos 2S video so long. I don’t want to condense down what I said in the video but the TLDR of this is: It’s awesome, completely. The Kronos 2S does MTL really well and very tight, it also does restricted lung very well and very restricted. The construction and machining are pretty tip-top.
Even though it’s been a few years, this still feels like a Vapor Giant product to me. Crazy easy to build, mostly simple to wick. It’s a really smart design IMO.
If you are a fan of the Falcon and Falcon King sub tank, chances are you will like these coil heads as well. The SAKERZ sub tank doesn’t look or feel like a Falcon tank, but the SAKERZ coil heads certainly feel like Falcon / Horizon tech coil heads.
The SAKERZ sub tank certainly isn’t bad, in fact, I like the top fill design of it much more than the Crown 5. The SAKERZ two-in-one mesh coil heads also vape pretty awesome. Solid contenter modern tank, nothing really new or groundbreaking to see there.
When your expectations are low, there is nowhere to go but up. Turns out this GeekVape Z50 kit is kinda rad as hell for a little single ( internal ) battery device / sub tank combo. The Z “nano” Tank is slick and slender. The B Coil heads vape like the P and Z coil heads, which is to say they vape great.
And here’s the thing, I’m surprised at how much I am using this and how much I like it. Just a quick, snappy, reliable, satisfying vape. GeekVape overall has stepped up their fit and finish / techy feeling game lately. Even though this looks visually like a product from years ago, the quality overall is much much better these days.
This one is a tough one for me. As I said in the video, didn’t care terribly for the OG Drop ( didn’t like the deck ) the OG Drop Solo was a bit more enjoyable. The Drop 1.5 wasn’t AMAZING ( mostly the deck complaint ) and finally, when we land at the Drop Solo 1.5 ( Single Coil RDA ) I can’t help but feel like we have seen this deck for like ….a decade now.
In my opinion, it is an outdated design that really offers no benefits except for really really bent coil leads. They could have done this 10 different ways and all of them would have been better than what we got with the Drop Solo 1.5.
On the upside the flavor can be bangin, and it looks real slick.
Slick, Techy, Finished, Well-vaping are all words I would use to describe the GeekVape Obelisk 60 AIO. The “P” coil heads vape identically to the “Z” coil heads, which is to say good. Airflow feels hollow-ish, but really my big gripe is the filling.
The filling / visualization of liquid the Geekvape Obelisk AIO 60 just kinda blows. This isn’t my first rodeo, I’ve used probably thousands of coil head based tanks. This is the first time in a long time I got a legit dry coil head hit. This is why I use RTA’s or drip with an RDA. AIO’s are a necessity for a lot of people, and thankfully there are some better ones out there than this.
The Crown 5 Tank is still a banger, I don’t love the awkward top fill, but it’s not a dealbreaker because the thing vapes awesome. I still do love the mod part of this Crown 5 Kit. Standing on it’s own, it’s pretty solid. Like I said in the video, the door does creak sometimes and there is some play side to side.
When you start comparing this to other recent mods like the Aegis Legend 2, this starts feeling a little cheaper. Still solid, just not as finished and polished if you know what I mean.
Suorin has come a long way since I last tried their products. This Suorin Air Pro is worlds better than I remember Suorin being. Full rich flavorful coil heads, Smooth ( but more loose ) draw, nice sized battery and pod.
It’s kinda hard to not dig the Suorin Air Pro. Even with the slightly bigger size, I really like having that bigger battery. The pods / coil heads seem to have a very very average life. The Suorin Air Pro pods start off REALLY strong and crispy and flavorful. After 3-4 pods the flavor dips a little and the crispy drops a little. It settles into a highly decent vape for the rest of its life. No shopping links allowed.
As I said in the video, If you haven’t held or tried a 3D Printed mod recently, give it another shot. Maybe I’m late to the party here, but 3D printing really has come a long way. This feels like a finished consumer product and much more durable than “home 3D Printed” devices in the past.
DNA100C is pretty snappy and nice, it can do a lot that I don’t care about, but I know lots of people will. I wish it had a solid bypass mode and I wish the UI wasn’t so awful.
