    Wish someone woulda told me how wack they were compared to protanks. If your thinking of 1 or the other get a Protank. Smoketech pyrex DCT tanks are a joke at vapor production and throat hit compared to protanks. Your welcome!!

    Sorry to disappoint but each has its own advantages.
    Knowing how to use each makes a great difference in final results.
    I have No issues with any of my delivery systems once I familiarize myself and adapt things as needed. Turns out some are good at worst and many are excellent.

    The Pyrex tank has -0- nada - nothing to do with Vapor production:
    E-liquid Blend
    Available Power
    Delivery Device wicking capability

    Some times you need a 1 hole Carto, sometimes you need Dual Slots to get things flowing. :D

    The protank is the first I ever used that I can take a direct lung hit off of. The throat hit for me is just a slight scratchiness.

    Your experience may vary, and advocating one device over the other can o ly be a personal opinion. ;)

    I'm with you on that. Although I've never tried the DCT. The KangerTech Protank is the best I've tried so far. It's a little airy but you get over that real quick. I'm afraid to buy more cause there is always something better coming along now...

    haha so for the smoketech DCT your throat hit must be non existant?

    I'm getting super thin smoke from my DCT with default cart atm, and a non existant th :p

    I always heard its about the quality of your carto on what your vape is like. Of course you want a good tank thats not gonna leak. I much rather just pay 8 bucks more and get me a Ibtanked one. Dont have to worry about slidey cartos and they can take a lot of abuse.

    Buy some boge cartos for the tank. It's not the tank that sucks, its the carto that comes with it. The cartos only last about 5 days or so anyways so you need to keep a bunch on hand if you're going to be using tanks all the time.

    What is the ohms of the Default Carto?
    How long have you been using it?
    What type battery are you using?

    That really is an authentic X8 that Fasttech is selling. The Smoktech Pyrex tanks are different.

    Smoktech Pyrex Tanks:
    Smoktech 510 Pyrex (DCT) Tank

    In case of vapor production and throat hit, I agree with the above poster in that the tank itself has no effect on those two things. It's the cartomizer itself that would make the difference. Perhaps try filling/priming your carto first, and take a few pulls off of that before fully assembling the tank. If you don't get much throat hit or vapor, it could be a bad carto, not enough power to the carto, to high of resistance, etc. If it's working to your satisfaction, then go ahead and slide it into your carto tank, fill, and vape away.

    I'm using an iTaste SVD.
    Ohms is 1.5.
    I've used it for about 20 mins before I made this thread

    I also got 15 boge carto's for the tank. I just got it all though so I used the default carto. I am hearing the default carto's are crap yes & that could be why. It's weird, most of the problems I hear with the default cart is it don't get juice into it enough, mine is draining as quick as an iClear30 on it, but still lacking vapor production

    I will try the boge's, but damn smoketech carto's sure do suck

    I'm in opposite world. I've finally got some decent flavor out of the KPT, but had to trick it out with ribbon kanthal, cotton wicks, and lower ohm coils. It still doesn't touch my Smok DCT (pyrex) or EVODs for flavor, with the stock carto. I will admit the KPT gives a little more vapor, but the V1 has more than enough for me, for TH, and definitely flavor. In fact, most I've read on here concurs that KPTs mute flavor.
    I'd bet an extra hole in the carto will help with TH and vapor.

    My DCT smoketech pyrex looks nothing like that, it's got a metal wall around it with 2 pyrex windows. It is all pyrex inside tho.

    The X8 is not the Smoktech Pyrex...

    This is another item I don't have issues with... have 2 of them, bought without cartos as I have my preference. Working great!

    Thanks for all the replies. I am sure it probably is my default carto since you all are saying good things about the tank.

    I have replacement carts I can use :). I will let ya know how it works with boge carto's later. I am sure it will be better!

    Get a couple of boxes of the boge 1.6ohm F16 duel punched cartos and revisit your new tank.

    Just curious how does the ProTank compare to an EVOD by the same manufacturer?

    I just switched from DC to single coil tank cartos. Picked up 10 from Altsmoke, and so far 2 out of the first box have been disapointing.. First one was so bad I pitched it in disgust. They are smoketechs, and I've been reading mixed reviews. I've used the regular smoketech cartos, dual-coils, and they performed as expected; though the dual coils seemed to mute the flavor.

    While I mull over what RBA's I want to try, does anyone have any tips to improve performance on stubborn carto's? Either they're wicking too fast, causing leakage, nor barely wicking, giving me dry hits.

    Thanks much.

    Any problem (other than leaking around the seals) attributed to ANY carto tank lies solely in the carto itself. Think about it, all the "tank" is, is just a way to allow the carto to hold more juice and go longer between refills. The tank itself does nothing for vapor production, TH, or flavor. ALL of that is controlled by the carto itself. So bottom line is find a carto you like and then add a tank to it.
