    If you want one and it will make you happy and content go for it. You will never find anyone who says that they regret buying a Provari, no one. They truly are IMHO the epitome of a regulated tube mod. I was into the mechs and the gennies and all the rebuilding; but since I have gotten the Provari I still use the ZAP but having carto tanks loaded and lined up with different juices to vape in an instant satisfies me fully. At this point between my Provari and a Reo I can't see how my vaping experience could be any better.

    Ohhh! Bashing a mugger's brains in with it sounds like yet another good reason to have one!!

    A 6 months reward? Hmmmm, last Monday was 181 days... that's close to 6 months, right?

    My choice to join the ranks of the ProVarinati had nothing to do with being a 6 months reward. It was just part of my plan to move up from the clones. Got "The Don" a couple of months ago to start moving up from the mech mod clones for starters. Now it was time to move up from the VV/VW clone. Don't get me wrong, the Sigelei mech mods and Zmax V5 have been great devices, they still are. I just wanted better, I wanted American made. When H2o Front posted pictures of his new Stealth Mini a few days ago, I pulled the trigger. Boy did I pull the trigger... I bought two. That new Stealth Mini and one that is still a secret (until this weekend anyway). LOL

    I dove in, I'm stoked for doing it. You just have to follow your heart basyilica.

    My turn to jump in and add my coins to the convo.

    First..........Hi basylica!!! Ok....that's out the way

    I'm not here to sell you on the idea of buying a ProVari. I think if one is asking, then they pretty much already know what they're going to do and reaching out for opinions only helps solidify the yes decision you've already made in your head.


    I bought a ProVari Mini for no other reason than I wanted one. It didn't matter to me how many other mods I have. I've been vaping for 2 months and have spent $2500. to find what works for me. I am not over the moon about my devices having variable voltage AND variable wattage. I adjust according to taste and (IMO) all that stuff only matters to people who cant seem to live without it.
    I have a Segelei Zmax that is VV/VW- I might pick it up once a week purely out of nostalgia. I bought a mech just to get it out of my system.

    I told myself I never wanted to be bothered with rebuildables. They *looked* intimidating then one day I said what the hell and bought one. Now, that's all I use aside from the (1) EVOD and T3S I have left. I've given away every Protank and Puritank I had.
    I still have a bunch of cartos sitting around- haven't put much thought to what I'm going to do with them but they were part of that $2500 which showed me, I don't really care for cartos despite all this about "it's the best vape".....not for me.

    I bought a REO Grand for no other reason than I wanted one. It's a bottom feeder. Sure there are bottom feeding attachments I could add to any tube mod but I think those things look hideous. I prefer a more minimal look.
    I still have an eGo I use from time to time- everything serves a purpose.

    Overall I am completely happy with my 2 main devices- now I just go crazy buying juice.

    I bought a ProVari for my one year anniversary. I wish I had done it sooner. My next mod after my ProVari was....another ProVari.

    It is a great device for an experienced vapor and may well be a device you find useful for the rest of your vaping days.

    I use an RBA and the ProVari works great (unless you want to do sub-ohm) for RBAs. I don't want to do sub-ohm. To me, having regulated voltage that is exactly the same on the first puff as it is on the last puff is far more useful than a bit more vapor from a .5 ohm coil. In any case, I recommend you get one. Good luck, do your research, and make the right decision for you.

    I think it is absolutely worth it. When you use cheapish mods like I do, you'll start to notice their downfall almost immediately.

    Each mod I pick up, it feels like there is voltage drop that I cannot possibly control and the build quality does not feel as good.

    With a Provari, you pay more. However, you get amazing build quality, an amazingly consistent vape and peace of mind IF anything goes wrong.

    I love mine and so glad I invested in one. I got the satin SS mini w/extension in polished silver and Blue LED-awesome mod!
    I'm doing the tank hunt now and just tried the carto tank..I'm hooked! Bought two IBtanks and a little nervous to load/prime them but excited because I know it will be the vape I'm looking for.

    Good luck in your decision!

    If I get one I'd go full size because I like the 490 life on my zmax and the 650, but not a big fan of 350s, and I'm fine with a bigger mod so no need to go small!

    On a side note like most women I've been wearing the wrong size bra and I knew it, but I gave up trying to find my actual size before my kiddos were born and stuck with cheap grandma 34 DDs from Bali. I went on a journey of discovery recently and found I'm a 30H or 32GG and my new goodies have been trickling in after a round of returns. I've always been a basic kind of lady, function over form, but it's so thrilling to own things that fit and are PRETTY!!! After 24yrs of white/black/nude I have purple! hot pink! houndstooth! Cherry! Russian dolls!

    True story: I met my folks for dinner at a casino and afterward we gambled for a bit. They came over to where I was, but I was winning and didn't want to leave just yet. So we said our goodbyes and my mom, being a mom, told me to be careful, just as I was taking a drag off of the ProVari on a lanyard around my neck. She glanced at it and said, 'Oh that's right, you have your thing." My folks considers it a weapon of some kind.
