Freemax Mesh Pro Sub-Ohm Tank Review

Freemax Mesh Pro Sub Ohm Tank

Freemax Mesh Pro Introduction

Hi All, Anthony Vapes back here with my review of Freemax Mesh Pro Sub Ohm Tank. The Freemax Mesh Pro is the latest sub-ohm tank from long time tank manufacturer Freemax. They aren’t as popular as other manufacturers, but they do have a long history of making some excellent tanks. Probably the premier sub ohm tank maker currently. In 2017 they knocked it out of the park with the Fireluke, Fireluke Pro, Fireluke Mesh, and Firelord Tanks. Now in 2018 they released the updated version of the Fireluke Pro and Fireluke with the Mesh Pro.

It’s available in 6 colors all of them resin. Black, Orange, Purple, Pink, Green, and Blue. (they updated their red which was really pink to be named pink now which is nice) and I think they are all pretty accurately labeled now color wise.

Looks and Design

The Freemax Mesh Pro Tank is a Beautiful Tank. I’ve had all the tanks in their Fireluke line and they are all stunning in their own way, sadly they dropped the the carbon fibre options which I think looked great. It’s a pretty large and feels really well built. There is no branding visible on the tank at all. All 6 color options come with a matching Resin 810 Drip tip which is nice. Overall though I find it to be a nice looking tank that follows the same design concepts as many sub ohm tanks.

Freemax Mesh Pro Sub Ohm TankFeatures and Functions

The Freemax Mesh Pro tank uses a standard 810 drip tip so you can also use your own if you’d like, but with the matching resin one’s they include, I’d stick with the included one personally. I think this is the best change from the original Fireluke which used a proprietary drip tip but the change was made prior to this one with the fireluke pro. All the threading on this tank is excellent. It’s a very nicely built tank with good quality. The coil system is a screw in type into the base much like most sub ohm tanks on the market. You need the tank to be empty to swap coils.

Airflow is 2 large holes equally spaced apart on the bottom. It’s plenty of air, easily made for DTL vaping. The AFC is smooth and easy to adjust despite having no knurling on it and it’s on a stopper. It’s nice and smooth. Filling is easy as well, unlike the previous Freemax tanks this was the 1 big change made. They got rid of the screw off fill and replaced it with a slide back fill. There is a small red dot on the metal frame part of the top cap to let you know that is where to push to slide it back. It’s a single hole and the hole is quite large and easy to fill with any bottle type but i wouldn’t pour into it. They also have a small air outlet hole as well which is a nice design.

Fireluke Pro vs Fireluke vs Mesh Pro

Since Freemax makes 3 tanks that are pretty similar and use the same coils i assume people will ask which one they should i get I figured i’d do a quick point out of the differences so people can decide for themselves when compared with each other.

  • Mesh Pro – standard 810 tip, no RBA included, comes with mesh coils, 6ml and 5ml bubble tanks included, 4ml optional. Slide back fill. 6 Resin colors only
  • Fireluke Pro – Standard 810 tip, no RBA included, comes with standard coils. 4ml capacity only no bubble tank. Screw off fill. 6 resin colors and 6 carbon fibre colors
  • Fireluke – Proprotary tip, RBA is included, comes with standard coils, 5ml and 4ml bubble glass included, screw off fill. 6 resin colors and 2 Metal colors (black and SS)

Coil Performance

Now to the important stuff. How does it vape? I’ve used plenty of these style of coils since i reviewed the past 2 tanks that took them as well. For the standard ones you can refer to those reviews. For this review i’m going to focus on the 4 new ones. They include the single mesh and double mesh, but also make a triple mesh and a SS mesh coil. Those are the 4 i used for the review.

Freemax Mesh Pro Sub Ohm TankI decided since there are so many to try I was going to run 120ml through all of them. 120ml is a good amount for good coil life and if I used them until they completely died this review would probably be another month from now. All 4 coils lasted 120ml easily and were still pretty much like new and didn’t show any signs of dying.

So I’ll start with the order I used them in. I started with the double mesh (included in package) I found it to be accurately rated. It was best to me in the 80-85 watt range and had really good flavor. Then I went to the Triple mesh (not included in package) which again I found it to be accurately rated as well being best in the 95-105 watt range. This is where the tank really shined for me.

Freemax Mesh Pro Sub Ohm TankThe performance flavorwise was excellent and worth the bump up in wattage. Then it was onto the single mesh which performed good but not as good as the double and triple mesh. still the flavor was above average and good in the 60-65 watt range and close to the fireluke mesh tank coils. Lastly the SS316 coils. I vaped them mostly in TC mode which worked quite well on a few mods using 100 watts for the power (temp depends on the mod however) but for example the aspire puxos was great at 430F with no other adjustments needed on the mod. This will depend heavily on your mod itself. If you wanted to vape in power mode with them it’s around 65-70 watts. It performed good similar to the single mesh.

Overall, the double and triple mesh are where this tank really shined and in my experience was the most flavorful sub ohm tank coils I’ve had to date. The SS mesh is good for temp control and the best TC compatible premade coil I’ve come across along with the one for the fireluke mesh and the single mesh is still good and better than a lot of tanks coils on the market, just not as good as the other options here but offer a lower watt requirement then the double and triple mesh which may suit some people’s needs.

I also gave one to a buddy of mine to double my results for coil life. He used the 2 included coils (double and single mesh), preferred the double mesh and didn’t measure MLs used but got over 2500k puffs per coil. I’ve had lots of freemax coils and in general they last long and rarely have a dud coil and give good flavor so their track record is great for coils in general.

Overall Impressions

Overall I really love this tank, it’s up there with the best of them for sure. Freemax has been kinda dominating the sub ohm tank market IMO (as far as good products not sales) and this is no exception to the rule. The Original fireluke was one of my 3 favorite tanks of 2017 and the fireluke pro which i didn’t get until 2018 but was excellent as well. All 3 use the same coils and i described the differences above to help people choose what suits their needs best.

I love the included bubble glasses but would have liked to see the RBA deck included, but you can likely find it for sale somewhere separate. I liked the new slide back as well but personally i prefer the screw off top style. I can see some people having an issue with the slide back opening but it’s stiff enough i didn’t have any issues with it personally

Conclusion

So with all that said, do I recommend this tank or not? I don’t like to do a hard yes or no, but i’m going to have to lean pretty heavy towards the yes. It’s one of the best sub ohm tanks on the market for flavor and the coil life is great as well. Hard to find any cons with the tank at all. I had to be pretty picky. If you are in the market for a new sub ohm tank it’s worth the look for sure. It’s not much different then the original Fireluke and Fireluke pro and some may prefer the other ones but I listed out the differences to help you decide.

This is Anthony Vapes just keeping it honest, hopefully you all can say the same and I’ll catch you on my next review.

I started vaping in late 2011 to quit chewing tobacco. over the past few years i got a lot more into the hobby side and buying and collecting a lot of gear. Fed up with the lack of good fair reviews i decided to start doing reviews late 2016 and haven’t looked back. I enjoy providing people with technical reviews that are fair and unbiased and from a place of knowledge to help them spend their money wisely.
