Steamcrave Glaz RTA Review

All right, everyone! Welcome to the down low portion of this video. Today, we’re going over the Steam Crave Glaz RTA. I just reviewed the RDSA, this is their RTA version of it. Check it out, some Steam Crave branding, you can see I have the stainless steel, Steam Crave over there. On the back, you see some of the highlights. Pause the video if you’d like to read it, you also have a scratch and check over here.

Let’s open this thing up and see what we got. Here is your glass RDA. I’ll give you a quick tour around it. In the box you will get a spare plastic, I guess it’s polycarbonate, plastic glass section. You also get a spare Pyrex glass section. Both sections are threaded because each side of the glass threads into the tank. You also get this big-ass tank band, there can be only one. You get a tri tool, you also get a bag of spare o-rings, spare deck screws and a spare gasket for your top film. Also included in the packaging is a Steam Crave sticker and a Glaz user manual.

From Top To Bottom

Moving on to the RTA ,you can see, my RTA is made out of full stainless steel. We got bottom airflow with a honeycomb style airflow on the bottom. Stoppers on both ends, beautiful knurling over here. On the bottom, we have designed by BJ SHI and a serial number. We also have a stainless steel 510 insulator ring around it, stainless steel threading over here. We are talking about 31 mm in diameter. On the top side, we have a 810 style drip tip, very comfortable. Other 810s will fit in there, just fine. That’s a smoke drip tip, see?

Here is your top fill right there, you also have some Steam Crave Glaz branding. Some people aren’t going to like that. It doesn’t bother me on the top like that, especially since it’s stainless steel on stainless steel, it’s not that intrusive. This fill port really should have been a little bigger, you really can only accommodate needle-nosed bottles and some glass strippers. Even the glass strippers are a little tough on this one because it doesn’t leave you a lot of room for the air to escape. Bull-nosed bottles are a definite no-no on this top fill. The top fill tolerance is very nice. I don’t know if I’d put this in my pocket though because I would be afraid that it would snap open and leak because there is no locking mechanism.

Let me show you how you access, the rest of the tank comes apart like that. Let me show you how the actual tank comes apart. Like I said before, this glass is threaded on to both sides of the tank and this, right here, your glass chimney, is just press fit it in there. I gotta be honest, I’m not happy that I only got one glass chimney. You’re going to include a glass chimney, you gotta include a spare. That’s really kind of bush-league force Steam Crave. I’m surprised they did that.

Now, when you’re tightening this down, just make it snug. Don’t keep cranking on it because you’re going to crack that glass. You can see that this chimney piece has a real nice domed shape to it, definitely going to give you some good clean flavor.

Here is the deck, they kind of got like an X configuration thing going on right here. Here are your post holes, postless deck. These are your wicking channels. Not too crazy about these two little pieces down here. I wish this was much more open because I think because of those two little juice flow channels on the bottom, let me see if I can zoom in so you can see it better. See those two juice flow holes on the bottom? Man, that’s really not big enough for something, for the coils that you’re going to put in here. I wish they would have put another hole in there or made it just a little bigger because this thing is very finicky to wick.

Here are your terminals right here. Here is your bottom airflow. Your bottom airflow comes in through here and travels up through there. You want to get your coil as close as you can to this part of the deck in order to maximize flavor

Building

Let’s drop a build in here. Let me show you how to build and wick this thing. Coils I’m going to be using today or just some simple Tiger Wire. These things actually vape really nicely in there. First thing you want to do is you want to grab a coiling tool. I like to use the four setting on this and what you do is you put your coil in there. Measure it out, take your wire clip up and cut and cut. That will give you the perfect length for this postless deck. You want to take your coil and you want to push it down into the post holes. Hold it there just like that. Take your driver and tighten it down so it’s nice and snug. Same thing on the other side, put some pressure on it and tighten that down.

Once you got your coil in place like that, you take your coiling rod, get it in there and position your coil the proper way. Again, taking care to get as close to that airflow as you can. And when you’re done, your build should look something like that.

Once you get your coils situated correctly like that, what you want to do is you want to give them a nice gentle pulse, get them glowing evenly inside. You want them from the inside out, glowing evenly. And there we go, we’re glowing evenly.

Wicking

My wicking of choice is Native Wicks Platinum Blend. Now, when wicking this, remember that this is very very fiddly to wick, it just is. You’re going to have to play around with it. You’re definitely going to have to go thin because if you go just too thick, what’s going to happen is you’re going to wind up getting dry hits, so make sure you definitely thin out your wicks. Grab yourself a nice piece of Native Wicks, just like so, and you want to pull it through nice and gently. You want to cut your wicks right where that opening begins, maybe even a little higher because, like I said, those wicking holes on the bottom are not that big. So you want to cut your wicks right around there and then you want to do the same thing again with the other side. Give it a little twist and put it right through and you can use the other wicks you just cut as a guide, just like that, just like that.

Now, like I said, you do want to do a bit of a comb out on this. This is one of the few times I actually recommend the comb out. I’m normally not big on comb outs. But man, this thing will dry hit if you don’t wick it right. Once you got it all thinned out to where you like it, give it a little haircut, just like that. You can even thin out the sides a little bit, if you want to. Thin out the top, get all those fuzzies out of there. That’s what it should look like when you’re ready to wick. Then you take your wicking tool and you, very gently tuck your wicks in. Do not stuff them in, tuck them in gently. This is just not as forgiving, as the aromamizer when it comes to wicking. This one, you got to get almost perfect, every time. And there you go, that’s how you want it to look.

Juice we’re going to be using today, Big Bottle Company, Jelly Donut. Actually some pretty good stuff man, really is. For an affordable juice, this is really nice, tastes like a spot-on jelly doughnut. What you want to do, you definitely want to wick, wet these wicks up. Want to get them nice and saturated because this is a big tank and it’s going to need a lot of juice. Get them nice and saturated. Give it a test fire and we’ve got vapor.

Let me put this thing back together and show you how to fill up the tank. In order to put it back together, just slip your tank section on there, give it a few twists and you’re ready to rock. Open up the top fill cap over here, stick your juice bottle in, give it a good squeeze and you’ll see we’re filling up rather nicely. Once it’s all filled up, slide your top cap back and now we’re ready to vape.

Let’s cut back on top, let’s talk about it, we’re going vape on it, cons, pros and then we’re out of here. See you back on top.

General Thoughts

All right everyone we’re back on top with the Steam Crave Glaz RTA. You saw it down low man, postless deck. Got that ex kind of configuration. Pretty easy to build on, little finicky on the wicking, it really is. You got to be careful when you wick it. You definitely don’t want to over stuff it. I like the drip tip, they did a nice job on the drip tip. Regular goons don’t fit but the smoke 810 drip tips will fit perfectly. It’s got an awesome top fill to it, I really like. It’s got some nice tolerance to it. Smooth bottom airflow. Machining, like all Steam Crave products, is just top-notch. Glass chimney has a great conical design to it. I like the deck design, I think it’s awesome, it reminds me though, that whole glass thing, reminds me of a bigger version of that that Augvape RTA. I think it was the Alaria, they had a glass chimney section but that one had juice flow control, this one doesn’t. But it kind of reminds me of that because I can see my build, I can see how it’s doing, I can see how it’s wicking. I like that that. The airflow on this thing is absolutely perfect, wide open. It’s a semi restrictive airflow, it kind of vapes like a 25mm tank would. That type of airflow, very middle of the road, I love it.

Let’s get into the cons and pros.

Cons

First con’s going to be, traditional goon drip tips do not fit in there even though it’s got an inside o-ring. I wish they would have made it so it would have fit traditional goon style drip tips. We’re going to give them a con for that.

31 mm in diameter, It’s only going to look good on really big mods, so that’s going to be a con.

Glass barrel, that condensation inside, that’s going to annoy some people. It doesn’t bother me, I like it, I like being able to look through. But some people, that condensation is going to bother. We’re going to give them a con for that.

And the last con, this is a big con man, no spare glass chimney? Steam Crave, are you kidding me? You got to include a spare, that’s, that’s absolutely ridiculous. I’m giving you a big con for that one.

Let’s get into the pros.

Pros

First pro is going to be awesome-looking tank. I think the looks on it are just fantastic, I love it. They’re getting a pro.

Smooth airflow, pro.

Top-notch machining, pro.

Restrictive airflow for a big tank. It vapes like a 25 millimeter tank, I’m giving them a pro.

That does not leak. You wick this thing right, it’s not going to leak, pro.

You have the ability to see your cotton and your coil. I like that, pro.

Plenty of extras, they give you plenty of spare glasses. The only con I got on the extras is there was no extra chimney but everything else is fantastic. Plenty of grub screws, we’ll give them a pro for that.

Price point, 45 bucks for this thing and let me tell you something, for the quality you get, it’s a value at $45. I’m giving a pro on the price point.

I’m going to give them a pro on the great deck design. I love that X kind of deck with the airflow coming in under the coil, pro for that.

Steamcrave Glaz RTA Review

Easy to build, pro.

Fantastic flavor and clouds, they’re getting a pro for that. And it’s got a great top fill design. I’m giving them a pro for that.
