Excellent Build Quality Fantastic Flavor Small Profile Very Light Easy to Build Very Stable Velocity Deck AFC Lots of Spares
CONS
No JFC Not for MTL Vapers Could Have SpitBack Hot Vape
This was my third Mage clone I ordered. The previous two had a very short positive center pin which secures the positive deck pole. So when building large coils, which this tank is really made for, the positive pole came loose. This specific SKU was the only I've seen with properly secure deck poles. It arrived with a little trace of machine oil, but was clean in general. The threads are smooth, although not the best. The driptip is beautiful combination of colors. Now, to the tank: This RTA is one of very few steam machines that provide great to fantastic flavors, even with the AFC fully open. But there's a price to pay. This tank is designed with smaller profile(with a very short chimney) but larger coils in mind. Some people may not be happy with the warm to hot vape it generates. Also, there's a fine balance between too hot a vape in proper setting, and spitback when you lower the setting to get cooler vapor. There is no JFC system, so to fill up the tank without leaking, you'll have to pack a lot of cotton. But be careful you don't pack too much, or it will fail to wick properly when chain vaping. Based on the above, in my opinion, this tank is best suited for vapers with good build experience. Otherwise, you may find yourself tired of too many tries to get it right. It will be a wonderful tank that makes a lot of vapor and provides amazing flavor tones, if you're willing to find the right setting that makes this tank so great. Recommended.

Excellent Design. Excellent Build. Heavy Duty. Functional Design. Durable Metal Belt Clip. Streamlined On Belt Position. Excellent Space Utilization.
CONS
Space Could Still Be Better Utilized.
After purchasing 4 or 5 vapers cases and pouches, I finally got this one that can be used by wearing, and on daily basis. Don't get me wrong: every other case and pouch I got is very good. And, unfortunately, very bulky. What I most appreciate in a compact carry pouch, is how space is utilized. And space has really be optimized in this pouch, comparing to the others I've tried. First, it sits very close to the body, and does not lean forward when worn on belt. So, it can be worn without looking like Batman's 1950's utility belt! It has a main pocket, that has enough room for larger mods, with a cover that curves on one side to allow for a tank. There's a pocket on the side that fits a 50ml Juice bottle, or a 30ml bottle, and an Ego One mod and tank(secured to the elastic that's on top of this pocket for taller stuff) as a backup device. Behind the main pocket, there is a small pocket that fits an 18650 battery or anything of the same size, and a larger pocket to fit another battery, or any other accessory you prefer to carry. Physically, this pouch is nice looking and made of quality material. All the stitching is with thick threads, and mostly double stitched, which makes this pouch very durable and heavy duty. A metal belt clip is secured the the back which adds to the durability. Highly recommended to a Vaper that likes to carry his juice and backup Vape equipment with him/her all the time.

Very Light Good Build Quality Includes Two PEI Tanks Includes Ego One coil Kit Topfill Good Airflow Easy to Build
CONS
Low Capacity Non Metalic Critical Parts Tricky Chimney Fit Difficult Center Pin
This is a full kit and has lots of included parts. And the parts of this kit are somewhat acceptable quality. But for certain, this is not the best kit of this category. I have a love and hate relationship with this tank :-) Love: As it's very light, stealthy and easy to build. Hate: But the small fill holes on top make filing difficult. The build deck style Generates flavorful vapor. But the chimney assembly is made of non Metalic Peek(To some it may be a pro, but using anything non-metal is around the deck is a con in my book). It comes with a kit that allows using Ego One coils, including the rebuildable CLS coils. But the center pin connection is not the best, and if you don't install the coil really tight, you'll have fluctuating resistance. Overall, I think love wins over hate, and the pros outweigh the cons: it's a real nice stealthy tank, and definitely recommended.

Excellent flavor Easy to build deck Functional no leak Topfill Excellent airflow Second SS tank included
CONS
Needs a good wash to remove oil and smell. Positive post got loose after 2 weeks(Resolved). Needs a tight fit drip tip for juice flow valve to work. Non glass PC tank.
*****This is an update to my original feedback: Buyer beware! Upon giving this tank a good wash, which it really needs, I was really marveling at the design of Tilemahos, ease of build, excellent flavor and quality of vape, when the positive post got loose while replacing my second or third coil. I tried to repair and tighten it. But it failed and left me with an unusable RTA. I contacted the FT support. after a long debate, the bottom part was finally replaced under manufacturer's warranty. This is the first time in my nearly 3 years of vaping, a deck post has failed on me. So, when ordering, please be mindful of this experience. That said, this may just be a lemon and a rare defective unit. The product design of Tilemahos is amazing and very innovative. The deck is really easy to build with wide screws that can nicely catch the wires. The juice flow can be completely shut down with a valve, which makes filling the tank a breeze, just open the top and fill the tank without any fear of flooding it. Remember to make sure you have a tight fit drip tip to work the juice flow. Otherwise, you'll end up opening the top with a not fully closed juice flow, and have all the juice drain out. What I also admire is the flavor which is nearly as good as good flavor tanks such as nextgen. Considering the airflow of Tilemahos is much more than other classic flavor tanks, is a huge plus in my book. Overall, this is one hell of a tank and one of my Favorites. Highly recommended
