Pad sheets remove cleanly from both sides Excellent lengthwise fiber orientation Really good price Organic Cotton with Black Spots (good) Pads puff up nicely when removed from package
CONS
Wick length limited to pad length Pad faces need to be peeled off (easy) Honestly, no real cons
There's so many reviews I will keep this short. The pads are an excellent source of cotton. You will need to remove the front and back sheets from the cotton pad. This is very easy to do and the cotton in the middle of the pad has a decent thickness to it. Fibers are mostly oriented along the length which is excellent for wicking e-juice. I find these wicks work well with thicker juice, high VG e-juice. Excellent flavor and short break in time. This is an excellent purchase. It's very handy if you are giving cotton to friends as you can spare 5 pads without noticing the 'loss'. I would strongly recommend purchasing a very high quality cotton as well as these pads. I would recommend FastTech's Cotton Bacon (SKU# 4045500)

Hits like a train Great Airflow and AFC ring Easy Build, Wide Open 2-coil Deck Quality Gold Plate Finish
CONS
A few very minor ones 1. Cannot use other drip tips 2. Liquid Capacity a Bit Low Because This Tank Drinks Liquid!
This is an amazing tank. It is wide enough to make for an easy build. Post holes are big enough. Wicking is really easy and doesn't want to leak yet can still keep up to heavy hitting. The finish is really good with clean threads and excellent gold plate. I have only tried the 2-coil deck and it works great! Huge freaking clouds! The kit comes with spares of everything and all the seals are quality. Even the box is nice! Even at a higher price I would still recommend this tank. For the $15 Canadian I paid this is an incredible deal. Might just order a few and sell them to my friends.

Solid Tank Clean Threads No Leaking Great Top Fill
CONS
one tiny nick in finish included coil is dead
This tank works great and when you install a new coil (throw away the included coil) it will fire right up. MAKE SURE YOU ORDER AUTHENTIC SMOK COILS FROM FT, the others seem to be dead shorts. I have contacted FT to let them know the entire batch is messed (FT SKU# 7462601 DO NOT BUY!). This tank is a bit larger and heavier than I thought it would be. I would strongly recommend that you consider a TFV8 clone as it would be a bit lighter and won't overhang your mod. BUY THESE COILS ONLY AS NON-AUTHENTIC ARE NOT WORKING I have ordered the 3-barrel 6-coil replacement coil V12-T6 FT SKU# 6962400 These coils are excellent. I have also ordered SMOK TFV12 FT SKU# 6748600 Have not tried, I hear they're good. As for huge clouds I actually get better clouds off a cheap dripper. The clouds are good but I am surprised that 120W doesn't produce more. Still, really great clouds! The best thing is being able to drop my mod in my jacket pocket and not have juice everywhere. No Leaks!! I had to mix down some e-juice as the flavor and nicotine are far too strong from this tank (V12-T6 coil). You will have a lot of success if you dilute your normal juice to 1/3 of its usual strength. I use HYPNO flavor (10%) with ...get this.... 1 mg/ml nicotine. And it's still strong!

I opened one of these coils up and some moron decided to wire them backwards. You only need to look at the current path for a moment to see what has gone wrong. There are two connections to the coil. One wraps around the outside of the cotton and contacts the main wall of the coil. The other wire heads to the center pin connection. What has happened is that they wired the wall connection to the pin connection so you get a dead short. Honestly it doesn't seem repairable. Swapping the wire positions leaves the connection too short and is very difficult anyways. I don't know if you could use the body to rewire it yourself. Probably wouldn't work and not worth it. We will just keep sending them back and maybe FT will finally figure it out.

Superb natural cotton (black spots) Excellent wicking Reasonably thick cotton in middle of pad LOTS in the package! TOTALLY RECOMMENDED
CONS
Pads need to be prepped by removing oversheets (like most pads, no big deal) Pads are regular length (not a con, just be aware, read below)
Fantastic cotton with great 'taste'. This is my main cotton that I use despite the fact I also use FiberFreaks and other semi-synthetic wicks. If I only had one wick material this would easily be my choice. The cotton has the little black spots so you know you are dealing with natural and minimally processed cotton; a very good thing. The cotton between the sheets on both sides has good thickness and fluffs up beautifully. The package contains years worth of cotton and you can give away pads to your friends with many left over. One thing to be aware of (not a con though) is the maximum length of the wick you can get from a pad. If you need a long wick this one might be a bit short. Example: The iJoy Limitless has a bit of distance between the coils and the bottom of the tank. The pad is about 5mm short for this application however this is the only tank I own where this would be the case. I still use these pads with my Limitless, they just don't touch the very bottom of the tank. If you rebuild often and/or change out wicks daily then this cotton is superb because it is a very low cost per pad.
