I like what Vapefly did with this tank and the coils it assembled in the package. They seem to have something for everyone that is into mid to high wattage tanks. While all three coils will provide you with a great vape, I do tend to favor the F6 coil. Vapefly did a great job on the construction and execution of this tank. While I could have done without the side fill, it is certainly not a deal breaker. So if you’re looking for something that’s just a little fancier than the Smok TFV12, you might want to give the Vapefly Fantasy serious consideration. Vapes just like a TFV12 or Cleito 120 but in my opinion, it looks better than the both.
How Does It Vape?
Since this tank accepts the TFV12 and Cleito 120 coils, it’s kind of hard for it to not vape well. I get an extremely cloudy, flavorful vape from the Fantasy tank. For me, it vapes just like a TFV12 or Cleto 120 when using the respective coils. The only difference between this tank and the TFV12 and the Cleito 120 would be the side fill, the cage-like look, 510 drip tip, and the gold accent rings. Other than that, this is basically a Smok TFV12 Cloud Beast King or a Cleito 120, depending on how you choose to use it. That’s not a bad thing as the TFV12 and Cleito 120 are both truly legendary tanks. I like the fact that Vapefly tried to take two great tanks and improve upon them while combining them. They did this without trying to reinvent the wheel but in my opinion, they fell a little short. That shortness doesn’t come in vape quality but rather in the design department.
Right now, I’m vaping on the .12 ohm Vapefly coil. I have it set at 140 watts and I am getting an extremely cloudy flavorful Vape. This thing chucks clouds but to be honest it is really not my style of vaping. I tend to stay below 100 watts usually in the 60-85 watt range.
First Impression Out of the Box
Nice packaging, everything is laid out on one level and side by side. This tank is pretty big, I’m liking the gold accents on it. It looks like they give you three coils. That is a huge Pro. However, I don’t see an RBA deck.
What’s in the Box
- 1 x Fantasy tank
- 1 x F12 duodenary 0.12ohm coil head (pre-installed)
- 1 x F6 sextuple 0.15ohm coil head
- 1 x F2 quadruple 0.15ohm coil head
- 1 x Extra glass tube
- 1 x User manual Spare parts
This tank has a detailed instruction manual that is well done. Nice to see companies stepping up their game in the manual area.
From Top to Bottom
The drip tip looks like a wide bore Smok drip tip. That would make sense since this coil accepts TFV12 and Cleito 120 coils. However, upon further inspection, you will notice that while the drip tip is a wide bore drip tip, the bottom of it has a traditional 510 connection.
The top cap is flat and has a gold-plated accent around it. Twist the top cap and pull up and you will reveal the side fill port. I’ve never really been a big fan of side fill tanks because for me they tend to get messy upon filling. I have no problem filling them with a needle-nose type juice bottle. It’s when you start to use the droppers and the bullnose bottles that the mess usually occurs.
This is a pretty big tank with a large glass section. There are some slanted bars going down in the middle of the glass. It gives the tank a sort of caged look. It’s a nice touch that breaks up the massiveness of the tank.
The chimney is a wide bore chimney but because of the 510 drip tip connection, everything narrows down in order to go through the 510 drip tip set up on the top cap. The coil screws directly into the chimney and as I said before this tank accepts the TFV12 and Cleito 120 family of coils as well as Vapefly coils.
The base has some knurling on it with two airflow slots that are quite big. The airflow slots have a smooth action to them and stoppers on both ends. There is also a gold accent ring around the base that matches the one on the top cap.
The threading on the 510 is very smooth but the pin does not protrude a lot at all. There is some branding on the base and the 510 pin is gold plated.
I love the fact that Vapefly included three coils in this kit. I think that is fantastic. I really would have liked to have seen an RBA section and as I mentioned in previous reviews, they will get a con for not including that in the kit. I would have even preferred for them to include two coils and an RBA head instead of all three coils. I will go over the coils in this section one by one and let you know exactly how they vape.
.12 OHM F12 Duodenary Coil
This is the first coil I tried in the Vapefly kit. This is a massive coil that requires the user to give it a really good priming before attempting to vape. I suggest you prime this coil with a little bit of juice before installation. Install the coil and then fill the tank up. After that, I would still let it sit for a few minutes so the coil can get fully saturated. I would suggest you do this with all sub ohm coils but especially this one because of its sheer size. This is the biggest coil in the kit and probably the most cloudy. It has good flavor but clouds are the primary objective of this coil. I like to vape like this once in awhile but this is not the way I vape everyday. This coil will also run through your juice quite quickly. So if you are going to use coils like this, make sure you own a juice company or DIY. This coil has wide-open massive airflow and it is the true cloud chucking coil. Recommended wattages for this coil are from 130 to 200 Watts. Those ratings are pretty accurate because this coil really does not get started until after 100 Watts.
.15 F2 Quadruple Coil
The quadruple coil is a little bit more mellow than the previous one we went over. It has the same type of airflow but it can be run at lower wattages. The recommended wattage on this coil is from 90 – 140 Watts. To be honest, this coil really doesn’t start to vape well until it reaches a minimum of 75 watts. My sweet spot for this coil has been right around 100 – 115 watts. I get more flavor than the F12 coil and the cloud production really doesn’t suffer that much at all. I do like this coil better than the F12 coil. It’s better and that is more important to me personally than clouds.
.15 F6 Sextuple Coil
This is probably the least airy coil out of the three. It is their version of the Cleito 120 coil. As a result, it’s probably the most flavorful coil as well. It has a recommended wattage of 100 – 140 Watts. I like running this coil right in the middle at 120 watts. I get an awesome, flavorful cloudy vape. This coil is by far my favorite out of the three. For me, it is a great compromise of flavor and clouds.
