Flavor compared to the 22 mm version
Hi folks
A couple of days ago, I ordered the 25 mm Serpent Mini (already shipped). But yesterday I read on a YouTube channel, a guy that claimed he never would by a 25 mm version tank again. He said that the 22 ml Serpent Mini was way better when it came to flavor, than the 25 ml. He said it was because of the bigger chamber on the 25 mm. I never had a tank above 22 mm, so I don't know. Is there someone else who has the same experience?
I really appreciate all you wonderful knowledgeable and helpful people her on FT forum. Thank you all so much.

The Serpent Mini has acquired a well deserved reputation as a great flavour tank, and so the 25mm version has a hard act to follow.

I have the 22 and right now I am toying with the 25, but like you I have my reservations.

With any given build, the extra chamber space appears to sap flavour, although the rather fun workaround is just to up your build and chuck some dirty great 3.5 or 4mm coils in there and fill up the space. That approach seemed to work well for me in the (huge) Cthulhu V3 anyway.

Have stopped buying tanks larger than 22mm for that reason, as I have personally found that they degrade the flavour.

But some people love them.
You can only know for yourself which you prefer by trying it yourself.

My experience with the Supreme ( 25mm )/ Supreme lite ( 22mm ) tells me there is some truth to that theory.

The difference is so slight ( to me ) that it makes little difference :) Of course all atty's are different, ( so YMMV with this one ) but I don't think it will be a deal breaker.

Can you hear that? At first I thought it was part of an iceberg breaking off, but then I realised it was the sound of a split forming in the atomizer-using community. :)

Get ready for war of the chamber sizes everyone.

We've long understood that smaller chambers create better flavour.

This hasn't been disputed ITT, build for build.

However, even for people who accept that as fact with any given build, the question remains as to whether filling up a bigger chamber with much bigger coils can offset the flavour reduction, and if so by how much.

Bigger atty = bigger builds = bigger coil setups =......better flavor?


Ready, get set...............

I will say this only one-The Serpant mini 22mm is hands down the best flavour tank i have ever used,the only tank i have bought more than one of and the only tank i would miss if i lost them.Saying that the 25mm is sitting in my ever changing wishlist for either a price chop or another fire sale as the £ v $ slump is making FT too expensive to be worth the 3-4 week turnaround
