If you haven't heard of the FreeMax Mesh Pro at this point, then you're probably new to vaping or you avoid any kind of vape related social media. FreeMax had probably one of the most aggressive social media marketing campaigns I have seen in a while for the Mesh Pro. It seemed like they sent their Not For Resale packages to everyone. Couple that with a fantastic product and you have one of the most widely recommended subohm tanks.
The Mesh Pro is a really good tank. I don't believe that's just personal preference and I think many of you will agree. If you want a more in-depth rundown of the Mesh Pro, you can view my review for it. Also, be sure to check out some other reviews to give you a more rounded perspective of the device.
When I initially reviewed the device, I received multiple types of coils to use: Single Mesh Kanthal, Single Mesh SS316L, Double Mesh Kanthal, and Triple Mesh Kanthal. While all of them performed exceptionally well, I am a really big fan of the Double and Triple Mesh Coils and, again, I think most of you will agree. So now FreeMax have decided to release a Quad Mesh coil (and maybe a Quintuple and Sextuple Mesh in the future!). So does the additiional coil make it that much better?
With the addition of a coil there are a few things that typically end up happening. First, it will tend to require more wattage for a better vape and can likely handle higher wattage. Second, you'll likely end up going through more juice due to the higher wattage. Third, you would expect some significant increase in flavor. These are concepts that are generally true yet mostly untrue with regards to the Mesh Pro Quad Mesh coil.
While the wattage range has increased a bit from the Triple Mesh, I found it to vape very well around the 85-90W range, which is about where I liked the Triple Mesh coil. While it states that it can handle more wattage, it didn't find this to be necessary. Also, and maybe because I kept the wattage at a lower range, I don't feel I ended up guzzling juice much more than with the Triple Mesh coil. Lastly, I was super excited to try out the Quad Mesh and was expecting a huge increase in flavor. This hasn't really been the case though. While the flavor is still really good, it's only slightly better than the Triple Mesh. Even when I bumped the wattage up higher, it didn't produce a significant increase in flavor.
It's not that the coils are bad, I think the Quad Mesh coils are actually really good, it's just they're not much better than the Triple Mesh coils. Longevity of the coil is still right in line with their other offerings. I've run over 80mL of overly sweet juice through 2 coils and they performed consistently throughout.
If you're wanting to try out the Quad Mesh Coils, I don't think you'll dislike them. Just don't expect them to add a whole new world of flavor above the Double and Triple Mesh coil options. Also, they tend to be slightly more expensive than the other coils, so that's something to consider.
