Hi Folks If only this review medium played background music as you read my musings, I’d feel obliged to play “Ride of the Valkyries” for this review…oh well, you can always play it in the background, get a dinner jacket on, and an e-pipe on the go or something…for we have the warrior princess Brunhilde!...daughter of Odin before us. No wait hang on….this isn’t Norse mythology, it’s German…the story slightly changes, instead the bloke she would marry had to best her in strength and courage….. To cut a long story short; she twatted him after he won because he tricked her, and I have no doubt it was probably with an object the size of this beast of a tank. Personally I prefer the Norse story myself, but regardless I’m still sticking with that theme tune, it comes to mind every time I take a “toot” from it. So in honour bound tradition, I kindly received the “Broon-hilt” for the once over from Vapefly, as always I don’t like to make recommendations in my reviews, instead ill present you with my findings should you be interested in the product.

Material wise it looks to be the usual SS standard you’ll see on their other products like the Galaxies, I believe it’s 304, screws are the same, you’ll find the same SS gold plated positive pin found on most Chinese products, in addition the drip tip is supposedly resin, but I believe it’s acrylic because it has that glue smell to it….finally while the anodising has been applied everywhere really well, it’s no different to anything else they’ve put out…so these things takes it out of the upper league for me…It doesn’t mean it’s not of a “higher standard” though, because it definitely is, as I said it’s the best piece I’ve seen them put out so far, I can’t pick up any flaws outside of the O-ring on the one in front of me. Vapefly are one of the few companies out there willing to take risks and explore different things with airflow, and deck design which for the most part pays off well for them, so let’s get the obvious size of the tank out the way, personally I think it’s at that point where you have to ask the question “what have I got that I can put that thing on”…at a whopping 65.5mm tall there is only one option for me, and that’s a tube….don’t get me wrong here I don’t want to promote this idea to any new vaper reading this, but those who have done their research into mechanical mods, know the risks, how to build safely, and know battery safety well, it really suits a tube much more in the looks department, also the positive pin protrudes nicely for hybrid use. I managed to get on just fine with the stock 810 tip. While its bore is rather large, it captures the vapour funnelled up from either side of the centre post well, and goes with the size of the tank well. It breaks down into 17 pieces (not including O-rings and seals), the glass tank sits inside of a warrior crested cage which is another reason I think it works great with a tube. There is a single 3mm hole in the chamber ring, by twisting this section it exposes either; the centre airflow directing air out from its central post (you can see the cut out in the breakdown shot above), or on the opposite side (marked by the 3 drops indictor), is the refill port…one thing to note here is you need either a needle, or thin tipped refill nozzle to refill, if you try to offer up a regular gorilla bottle, or worse twist top nozzle you’ll find it’s a very messy experience, This part is even more painful because that tank is large at 8ml, although does mean you fill it less often. In addition to the above, one thing I think would help this tank in the refill department is an extra hole near the juice inlet for the air to escape as you fill it up, I get they probably didn’t add it to help push juice up through the steel rods, however if you choose not to use them, and go for straight cotton or mesh wicking instead it means the deck gets flooded very easily which slows the refill experience to a crawl. Underneath the top cap is a steep dome, the drip tip extends slightly inside this domed area rather than sitting flush which helps a little with condensation build up and reducing spit back. Outside of that you have stepped sections cut out which allow you to restrict airflow to just the bottom tier of airflow holes or half of top and bottom.
