The FreeMax Mesh Pro is the latest sub-ohm tank to be released by FreeMax, and is the follow-up to the popular FireLuke Mesh tank. The FreeMax Mesh Pro is a massive tank that can hold up to 6ml of ejuice, and features an optional full resin body that looks absolutely beautiful. Not only that, but it is also said to be the first multi-mesh, sub-ohm tank on the market with single, double and triple mesh coils available.
I’m a big fan of the original FireLuke Mesh, and I thought that the single mesh coils delivered a very flavorful vaping experience. So when I heard that the Mesh Pro would take multi-mesh coils, I had to get my hands on one to try it.
Well, I got one… And I’ve been enjoying every second of it since! So let’s get right into this FreeMax Mesh Pro review!

Design & Build Quality
The first thing I noticed about the FreeMax Mesh Pro is its size. This sub-ohm tank is absolutely massive! While the base diameter of the tank is 25mm, the rest of the body is gigantic. From the 9mm wide bore drip tip, to the 5ml and 6ml glass tank sections, there is nothing small about this tank.
Even more unique than its size is the optional full resin construction (The Mesh Pro is available in 5 different colored metals as standard). The drip tip, top cap, and base of the tank are all made of resin, and the dark blue/purple color that we received for this review looks stunning. One thing to keep in mind is that resin is very fragile, and so one drop could mean the end of your Mesh Pro. If you get the resin version, be very careful with this tank. You’ve been warned!
The Mesh Pro uses a very simple, push-to-open top fill system. First, directly underneath the resin top cap is a small metal strip. On this metal strip, there is a red dot that indicates where to push the top cap back. Push above the red dot, and slide the top cap back to reveal a single large fill port. This fill port is even large enough to fit dropper bottle nozzles, and has a silicone lip to prevent leaking. Overall, the FreeMax Mesh Pro is a breeze to fill, and I haven’t experienced any sort of leaking from around the fill port/top cap area.
There are two glass tank sections included with the Mesh Pro: one pre-installed 5ml standard glass tank, and one 6ml bubble glass tank. The 5ml glass section gives the Mesh Pro a more streamlined look, and doesn’t stick out any farther than the rest of the tank. The 6ml bubble glass on the other hand sticks out quite a bit more than the top cap or base, and so you have to be even more careful with this tank when using it. But hey, at least if you tip your mod over, the bubble glass will break first and save the resin body.
There are two large airflow slots located at the bottom of the tank which are fully adjustable, and can be fully closed. However, in my testing I noticed that juice would sometimes leak from between the airflow control ring and the metal base of the tank.
Perhaps the most interesting feature of the Mesh Pro is its coil compatibility: it’s compatible with coils from the original Fireluke and Fireluke Pro sub-ohm tanks. However, we’re going to stick to the new coils for this review. There are four new coils available for the FreeMax Mesh Pro:
- Kanthal Single Mesh 0.15ohm Coil – Rated for 40-70W
- Kanthal Double Mesh 0.2ohm Coil – Rated for 60-90W
- Kanthal Triple Mesh 0.15ohm Coil – Rated for 80-110W
- SS316L Single Mesh 0.12 Coil – Rated for 400°F – 550°F
Included with the FreeMax Mesh Pro you get a Kanthal single mesh coil, as well as a Kanthal double mesh coil. I thought it was a shame that a triple mesh coil wasn’t included, but I picked up a pack to ensure that all bases were covered for this review. And believe me, you’ll want to pick up a pack as well.
When it comes to sub-ohm tanks, the flavor you get from this baby is stellar. More specifically, the flavor you get from the triple mesh coils is stellar. This is where the flavor truly shines, and so it’s a bit disappointing that FreeMax didn’t include a triple mesh coil with the tank.
I found that the single and double mesh kanthal coils delivered rather average flavor, as the vapor seemed to be quite light and very airy. Even with the airflow closed to the minimum, the vapor was never very dense. Instead, it was very airy and very smooth.
Now, with the triple mesh coil at 90W is where I found the flavor really popped with this tank. I tasted flavors in my ejuice that were otherwise muted in other sub-ohm tanks, and I found the vapor to be very dense and flavorful. Even with the airflow set to fully open, the triple mesh coil is amazing and delivers a truly unique taste experience.
Being as they are multi-mesh coils, the Mesh Pro goes through juice like nobody’s business. I was using at least a full 6ml tank of juice every day, which tells you that these coils are just about as thirsty as they come. In terms of juice usage, I would say that it’s comparable to an RDA.
Another thing that really sets the Mesh Pro apart from other sub-ohm tanks is its coil life. The new double and triple mesh coils can be used for quite a while without having to be changed. I used each coil quite heavily for up to two weeks at a time before I started to notice the flavor dull at all. This means less money spent on changing coils, which is great for your pocket.
Additionally, swapping flavors is really easy with these coils. After just a few puffs, the old flavor was completely gone and I could only taste the new one. As somebody who can’t vape the same flavor all the time, this makes these coils even more perfect.
So what’s the bottom line for the FreeMax Mesh Pro? Personally, I think it’s a great tank with features that set it apart from other sub-ohms on the market. The filling system is easy to use, the tank capacity is great, and the flavor you get is amazing. However, the multi-mesh coils come with the downside of being extremely thirsty, and this is something to keep in mind. Some ejuices these days can be very expensive, so you’ll have to decide if the flavor gain is worth the extra juice that the multi-mesh coils will use. Stay Versed!
