Seems to me the choices are:

I haven't had a flood since I got my coil building skills honed. A little effort to learn to build your own coils and problem solved!!
The coil is a big part if it. I had gurgling and leaking with Protank 2. My neighbor recommended the Aero tank air flow control base for the Protank 2. It works. I gave away a Protank2 so I had to order another one, and a couple of the air flow control base. What a difference. I use Kanger coils that fit Evod, Protank and Mini Protank. I rebuild with 2mm silica wick, 2mm flavor wick, and 32 guage kanthal A1 wire, 5 wraps around 1/16" drill bit (.0625" diameter) placing the silica along the bit base and wrapping the kanthal wire tightly gives you 2.0 - 2.3 ohm coil. I use Itaste VV Version 3 to check ohms. At times I have to redo the rebuild to get the ohms correct but it works.

If they leak out the bottom, you are probably screwing the heads on with too much force. This causes the coil to unscrew a bit, and let juice through the threads. You can fix this just by re-tightening the coil (and using less force when you put the head on).
(By coil, I mean the whole coil assembly...)
If you mean "gurgles", make sure the white translucent plastic thingy is pushed all the way down.
You are so right. There is no plug and play.

By allowing the air in the vacuum inside the tank to be maintained - no leaking, no gurgling.
Sun Vaper, Lite Cig USA, and MyVaporStore carry the Aero base. For a while everyone was sold out.
I'm sorry I gave away my 1st Protank 2. I just ordered a 2nd Protank2 to use with Innokin itaste VV V 3.0, and Innokin Itaste MVP.
The only tank that gave me no trouble regardless was the Kanger Mini Protank 2, but you have to refill it frequently.
As in life, there is no perfect anything, job, car, spouse, house, dog, cat, horse, etc..
Haven't had any trouble with my Kanger Aero. I've also heard that the base can be used on the Protanks to eliminate the leaking problems but I don't have any personal experience with that. You can buy the base by itself. The Aero has a sealed bottom instead of the open pin hole of the Protanks and mine hasn't shown any gurgling or leaking at all since I've had it.
