OFRF NexMESH Sub-Ohm Impression

The OFRF nexMESH Sub Ohm Tank

is all the craze from some reviewers immediately , although it’s not officially out yet. It’s touted as having quality features and being equally big on flavor and vapor. OFRF calls this the primary “conical sub ohm tank,” featuring a funnel-like coil rather than the common cylindrical design. That coil design is supposed to extend flavor by allowing airflow to hit more of the mesh coil on the high due to the absolute best portion slanting in.
The nexMESH Sub Ohm Tank is listed as a 25 mm tank meant for giant direct lung hits. It comes with two mesh-coils: a 0.20-ohm A1 nexMESH conical coil (pre-installed), and a 0.15-ohm SS 316L conical coil. it’s a 4 mL standard capacity, and it comes with a 5.5 mL bubble glass. Also, it’s got adjustable airflow, a push-to-fill top refill system, thread-less coil swap, and a shock-proof PCGT tank section that’s virtually indestructible.
Although the name OFRF seems like it should be uttered letter by letter, it’s actually pronounced “off.” OFRF is understood for its mesh strips utilized in rebuildables, typically within the Wotofo Profile series. OFRF made slightly noise last year with their Gear RTA, but they’re not really thought of as a hardware company. The OFRF nexMESH Sub Ohm Tank may change all that. this is often often often only OFRF’s second atomizer and their first pre-made coil device, yet it’s already considered by some to be a top contender for best sub ohm tank.
The OFRF nexMESH Sub Ohm Tank has an industrial looking design that’s a bit like the UWELL Crown IV. It’s super clean. I received the gold, sapphire blue, and gunmetal versions. I don’t have a favourite . all of them look good and thus the anodizing is consistent throughout the surface of the tank (inside of the drip tip connection the colour fluctuates a tad).
It’s a medium-sized sub ohm tank by today’s standards, measuring about 26 mm x 41 mm without the tip. Although it’s listed at 25 mm, that’s really only at the very bottom of the tank where it bevels in. The nexMESH Sub Ohm tank is primarily made from chrome steel and it weighs about 70 grams. It’s almost an equivalent size because the Falcon and slightly larger than the Crown IV.
It comes with a straight 4 mL PCGT tank section, with an additional glass bubble tank that holds 5.5 mL. The PCGT tank is remarkably durable. I dropped my tank several times from a minimum of 6 ft down onto concrete. No sign of injury at all! However, it’s important to understand that the bubble tank isn’t PCGT. Just to determine , I put the bubble glass a zipper lock baggie and dropped it onto my kitchen floor from about 4 ft. Well, i’m down one bubble glass.

OFRF NexMESH Mesh Coil
The nexMESH Sub Ohm Tank comes with one press-fit 810 tip. It’s a fast tip, measuring only 9 mm tall (not including the tip connection), and it’s an honest funnel. the lowest opening is about 8.75 mm and thus the very best opening is about 10.5 mm. The tip features a subtle bottom-bevel that creates it appear as if there’s a definite segment between it and thus the very best cap. I actually a touch just like the planning of it because that slight bevel echoes other details within the planning of the tank, and sometimes it almost seems like it’s floating on the absolute best of the tank.
The overall construction of the tank is completed well. you’ll take it apart easily, but all pieces should be screwed down tightly or the incorrect piece can get removed at the incorrect time, causing a multitude . Don’t get crazy with it but do confirm all the parts are screwed together firmly. Also, once you initially get your tank, i like better to recommend taking it apart and putting it back together; that way you’ll make sure that each one the pieces are secure.

The top fill could even be a push-to-open design, indicated by alittle arrow on the absolute best cap. It takes an honest amount of a push to open it, so it won’t open on its own. Once you open the refill section, you’ll notice that you simply simply simply don’t see any port. The port could even be a self-sealing silicone slot that you simply simply simply need to penetrate in conjunction with your bottle top. It’s an honest feature but it comes with some trade-offs.
When filling, all tips insert easily, apart from the stumpy droppers on big bottles, like 100 mL or more. due to the absolute best cap sliding straight back and not swiveling away like on the Falcon, the dropper top just barely is during an edge to urge into the fill port without removing the drip tip. No biggie really, just remove the tip.

The main issue I even have with the absolute best fill is personal. Being a long-time dripper, I habitually change flavors. Yes, even within the middle of 1 tank. With the sealed refill port, I can’t empty out a juice back to a bottle. I’ll explain how this might be a haul within the coil swap section.

This is the huge point of the tank. The “conical coils.” once I first heard of it, I didn’t know what to imagine, but this wasn’t what I expected. The “conical” shape of the coils isn’t pronounced when simply looking down inside the coil. It’s alittle taper to the eye , though measuring it with calipers reveals it’s on the brink of a 2 mm funnel. It starts out wider at the lowest and tapers slightly on its high . Theoretically, the airflow traveling upward should condense and hit more of the coil since it slants in. this is often often often alleged to increase flavor.
So far, there are only the 2 heads available, and they’re both single-coils. They’re both marketed as having “triple density” mesh—a thicker weave—that makes for an outstanding quick ramp. In my experience, most mesh already has fast ramp.
What is especially fast is that the wicking. First off, I don’t “prime” coils. I let the wick just absorb juice through its ports within the tank. to ascertain the wicking speed, i exploit a stopwatch and alittle flashlight to determine down into the chimney until I see dry cotton start to glisten. I clocked the whole absorption of the wicks with Bantam e-juice (max VG) at 1 minute 45 seconds (I tested this on both heads, on several dry wicks). Resin 810 Drip Tip

OFRF says they use a “twin absorption” wicking system of two layers of cotton that’s alleged to wick quickly and stay wet. Those wicks are fed juice from four generous wick slots, measuring 4 mm x 8 mm. the result’s fast wicking and minimal flavor carry-over. In contrast, I clocked the Horizon Falcon’s wicking at three minutes. That’s twice as long because the nexMESH Sub Ohm Tank’s coils.
Coil swap
The coil swap is just a bit like the Crown IV. rather than screwing into the lowest connection of the tank, the coil gets pushed into the coil head cage, then the lowest screws onto it. But unlike the Crown coils, the nexMESH Sub Ohm Tank coils have less to grab. There’s a skinny polished SS disc that you simply simply simply got to pull on to urge obviate . You’ll need to use your nails slightly .
Also a touch just like the Crown IV, removing a coil head will likely be wet with juice and you’ll inadvertently remove the absolute best O-ring of the coil head if you’re not listening . confirm that O-ring stays on.
In general, i prefer this coil swap design. But it doesn’t allow you to urge obviate the coil with a full tank (half a tank or lower is fine). This issue with coil swaps and full tanks is common, but it’s made into a selected issue because the absolute best fill is sealed. If you’d wish to swap coils with a full tank, you can’t easily empty it out unless you merely let all the liquid pour out of the coil head cage. A classic case of a trade-off. A feature during a way , a con in another.
The nexMESH Sub Ohm Tank features plenty of airflow and it’s loud if you rip it fast and hard. You don’t need to . It’s smooth and not very loud if you’re taking a simple , slower hit, which you’ll do even with big hits. It doesn’t whistle within the smallest amount , even with the airflow closed down. i feel it’s more total air than the Falcon and about an equivalent because the Crown IV. It’s quite difficult to quantify because all of them feel slightly different, not just in quantity.
The two airflow slots measure about 3.5 mm x 10 mm. They sit inside an airflow ring that stops on the turn, plus it’s many resistance. it’ll not accidentally move from where you set it. Unfortunately, because the ring has no knurling or indentations (just alittle bevel on the absolute best and bottom), it’s not as easy as its competitors to manage . If your fingers or the ring gets wet from juice, it’ll be even harder to means . It’s not an enormous issue, but worth mentioning.
Lastly, in my opinion, the flavour performance doesn’t increase with the airflow being reduced any. I’ve been using this tank fully open.
Have you heard this tank had some great flavor? I hadn’t heard that before I used it (I got the tank before the hype started). My first session with it had been just a couple of of minutes one night before bed. I first used the Kanthal A1 0.2-ohm heads and wasn’t impressed with the flavour , although the vapor output was huge. subsequent morning, I contacted a colleague (Spyros) and asked him about it. He said he’d heard that it had been alleged to be incredible. I argued that it didn’t impress me but soon realized that I had far insufficient time with it to form such an assertion. I picked it copy and need to vaping. After using it now for multiple refills on each coil, I tease my first impressions. Boy, was I wrong! This thing is off the charts.
My favorite coil of the 2 is that the SS mesh in power mode. There’s little or no break in time, maybe 1 / 4 of a tank if that. This coil is ridiculously good! Super moist, but it’s not spitting. the flavour is incredibly pronounced, vibrant, and accurate. The taste isn’t adulterated. I’m falling back crazy with one among my favorite juices (Yami Vapor’s Taruto). Creamy snack bar Crunch from Bantam is additionally amazing during this tank. I did use the SS coil in TC, mainly just to mention that I did just just just in case someone asked. It worked well, but I prefer it in power mode. i assume the rating between 350F and 550F is about right, but I find it best around 10-15 watts above its recommended 75-watt ceiling.
The Kanthal head is good too, just not nearly nearly nearly as good to me because the SS head. The Kanthal head takes slightly longer to interrupt in; around half a tank—underscoring why my initial impression was off; I just needed slightly longer with it. The Kanthal A1 a minimum of doubled in flavor from full to half full. And it doesn’t take too long to urge passed that break in point because this tank guzzles the hell out of juice.
Besides its amazing flavor and vapor, I’ve had no spitting, popping, or maybe any leaking within the smallest amount (setting aside a few of messy coil swaps). However, I should means there are some reviewers that said theirs leaked tons . I spoke with OFRF about this which they said that was due to preproduction models. Either way, mine has been bone dry on the surface of the air holes, even when sitting for each day or more. I’ve checked this during a plastic cup with the tank on its side: it’s been over hebdomadally now and no leaking. For real!
