Those of you who have been reading my reviews of “starter kit” mods know that most of my complaints are about the tanks they come with. I’m very picky about tanks.
To me, a good tank has to have a sturdy construction, hold a lot of juice, deliver good flavor AND vapor production, and be easy to refill.
Joey, the owner of Caught the Vapors in Burbank, said that the new tank he’s stocking met ALL of my requirements — and he gave me one to test out. (Thanks, Joey!!).
The tank in question? The Blazer 200 by Sense.
I’m very familiar with Sense products. I had a few of their various Herakles models and loved them. But I cast them aside once Smok’s Baby Beast came out — because you just can’t beat that swivel-top filling mechanism! Or can you…?
I believe you can. And, furthermore, I believe Sense has done it. Ladies and Gentlemen: I think THIS is the new winner for “best tank on the market” for 2017.
Comprised of stainless steel and a Pyrex glass tube, right off the bat the Blazer 200 meets my “sturdiness” requirements. When it comes to tank construction, that’s about as good as it gets.
As for holding a lot of juice? Oh BABY, does this thing hold a lot of juice! The Blazer 200 boasts 6mL tank capacity — that’s 0.5mL more than Smok’s gigantic Cloud Beast!
As for flavor and vapor production, it scores high marks in those areas as well. The Blazer 200 uses ceramic and cotton to create a coil that works wonders. You get the best results at around 50-100W with these special coils. Or, if you use their more “standard” coils (minus the ceramic), then you can vape at 60-200W.
But THE standout feature of this particular tank model is the top-filling mechanism. Sense has taken the swivel-top fill of Smok’s “beast” line and turned it on its head — taking what was wonderful and improving on it ever-so-slightly to create something truly revolutionary.
The Sense Blazer 200 has an EASY top-fill system where you simply unlock it and flip it open. POW! That’s it! Unlock, unpop, and fill. It honestly doesn’t get any easier.
And did I mention that it locks? Unlike with the “beast” tanks, you no longer have to worry about your tank swiveling open and spilling out into your pocket or purse. Amazing.
Literally the only “con” I could come up with is that the coils aren’t sold everywhere. Since a lot of vape stores don’t sell Sense products, the coils for their tanks can be a little hard to come by.
However, that doesn’t really matter. And I’ll tell you why:
The Blazer 200 is compatible with Smok’s TVF8 coils — and those are sold evvvvvvvvvvverywhere.
If you’re not lucky enough to come across an authentic Sense coil for your tank, you can simply use a TVF8 coil and get nearly the same results.
As I said at the start of this review, I think this tank should be awarded the “Best Tank of 2017.” It’s beyond excellent, and is my new favorite, bumping my Baby Beast down to number two.
If you live locally in the Los Angeles area, stop by Caught the Vapors and grab one of these before they sell out!
Until next time,
