The bottom line

The HorizonTech Falcon Legend is yet another great tank from the company known for their flavorful coils. This tank is a great one overall from all aspects, with a clean design, lots of coil options, a nice draw, and good flavor.

If you’re looking for a first tank, or even for an upgrade to the one that you have, the Falcon Legend is a great option to look at. The performance is on-par with HorizonTech’s Aquila tank, but the benefit here is that you have ten coil options as opposed to the two with the Aquila.

Just keep in mind that the coil options for the Falcon Legend are all quite low resistance and require high wattage to get the most out of them, so this is a tank that is best suited for a dual battery vape mod and not a single battery mod.

The few complaints that I have with the Falcon Legend are that the airflow can be loud, the AFC ring is difficult to adjust at first, and that the tank uses a lot of ejuice. But I think that I can look past all of these as they aren’t dealbreaking cons and the performance of this tank is good enough to overlook a few minor faults.

If you’re a sub ohm tank user, then you’ve probably heard of HorizonTech. They’re one of the most popular vaping brands for tanks, with a catalog of award-winning mod toppers. The Falcon Legend is the latest member of their Falcon series of tanks, joining the Falcon 2 and Falcon King.

The Falcon Legend is a bottom airflow tank with a 28mm diameter. It has a 5ml tank capacity and is top filled through dual ports which are located under the top cap.

The Falcon Legend is compatible with all Falcon M & F series coils, so it can be used with older Falcon tank coils. Included with the Falcon Legend are two new coils that HorizonTech claims will provide better flavor, a smoother draw, and longer coil life.

HorizonTech’s tanks are certainly top of my list when it comes to sub ohm tanks, with their Sakerz Master tank being one that I still use regularly. But is the Falcon Legend good enough to earn a spot in your collection?

This tank was sent to me by HorizonTech for the purpose of this review. This does not affect my opinions or thoughts on this device in any way.

Design & Build Quality

  • HorizonTech Falcon Legend - 1

HorizonTech has been changing up the styling of their tanks with each new iteration, but they all have a familiar look to them. The Falcon Legend is no different, with a look that is very HorizonTech but with some new styling to freshen it up a bit from their previous tanks.

Overall, the Falcon Legend looks a lot like the Aquila or Falcon 2 tanks. It’s slender and understated, with a shiny finish that is available in five colors. I’ve been using the Gun Metal color and it’s nice because it doesn’t stand out and looks kind of professional.

The main design element of the Falcon Legend is the patches of knurling along the top cap and bottom of the tank. The knurling on the top cap serves the dual purpose of looking good, and also adding some grip for removing the top cap.

The top cap comes off with a quarter-turn and it’s very secure. It has enough resistance that it’s not going to come off accidentally, but the knurling makes it easy to remove when you want to fill up the tank. The two kidney shaped fill ports feature a silicone lining to prevent leaks and it does the job well.

The top cap is interesting because it can be put back on in two ways. If you put it back on ‘properly’, then the knurling on the top cap should line up with the knurling on the metal band just below it. If not, the knurling creates an alternate pattern between the band and the top cap. Either way, the top cap is on securely, so it’s purely a matter of what you think looks best.

The drip tip on the Falcon Legend is a wide-bore 810. It’s removable, with the o-ring located on the drip tip itself. I like the drip tip and find it comfortable, however it can be replaced with another 810 drip tip of your liking. Just ensure that the drip tip that you want to use has o-rings on it.

The Falcon Legend comes with a 5ml bubble glass and a 3.5ml straight glass. With the bubble glass, this is the same ejuice capacity as the Aquila or Sakerz Master tanks, and just shy of the 5.2ml capacity of the Falcon 2. I like the slim look with the straight glass, but the capacity of the bubble glass won my favor in the end and it’s what I’ve been using for most of my testing.

Like other tanks in the Falcon series, the Legend is a bottom airflow tank. There are three medium sized airflow slots which pull air in, through the coil, and out the drip tip. 

At first, I thought that the airflow wasn’t adjustable and I was shocked. I just couldn’t get the AFC ring to turn while it was installed on my mod. However, I quickly realized that it was tightened a bit too much onto my mod and that the airflow control was just a bit stiff. Once I removed it from my mod and twisted it around a bit it became much easier to adjust. 

A word to the wise; don’t over tighten this tank on your mod or it will be difficult to adjust the airflow. Also, play around with the AFC ring before installing it on your mod.


Coils

HorizonTech Falcon Legend - 7

The Falcon Legend comes with two, new M series coils. These are a 0.15Ω M8 coil (pre-installed), and a 0.15Ω M6 coil. In addition to these coils, the Falcon Legend is compatible with all other Falcon M and F series coils so there are ten coils available in total. The full list of compatible coils is:

  • 0.15Ω M8 coil (65-70W)
  • 0.15Ω M6 coil (65-70W)
  • 0.16Ω M2 coil (70-80W)
  • 0.16Ω M1+ coil (75W)
  • 0.15Ω M1 coil (70-80W)
  • 0.38Ω M-Dual coil (80W)
  • 0.15Ω M-Triple coil (80-85W)
  • 0.20Ω F1 coil (80W)
  • 0.20Ω F2 coil (80W)
  • 0.20Ω F3 coil (70W)

From looking at the list above, the coils that you can use with the Falcon Legend are mostly in the 0.15-0.20Ω range and all are for mid-high wattage vaping. Even the highest resistance coil, the 0.38Ω M-Dual coil (which comes with the Falcon King) is meant to be vaped at ~80W. If you prefer vaping at lower wattages then this is probably not the tank for you because you’ll need to vape at or above the recommended wattage range for the best flavor and experience with the Falcon Legend.

The two coils that come with the Falcon Legend are very similar to one another. They’re both 0.15Ω resistance, and they’re both meant to vaped at around 65-70W. Internally, the two coils also look nearly identical. The only difference is that the M8 has four strips of mesh running around the inside of the coil, while the M6 has three.

The mesh in the included coils is composed of fine (but not super-fine) diamond mesh strips. The mesh in the M8 coils is a little finer than the M6 but the mesh looks very similar between the two.

Both of these coils use bamboo pulp cotton for better wicking and flavor. HorizonTech states that the M8 is better for vapor production, while the M6 is better for a smoother draw. I’ll go over my experience with these coils a bit later, in the performance section of this review.

Installing the coils is pretty simple, but it’s a threaded fit as opposed to the plug n play coils that you see in many other tanks. You first have to unscrew the base of the tank, which is simple enough. Then, screw the coil into the base and put the whole thing back together.


Performance

HorizonTech Falcon Legend - 9

The Falcon Legend is a tank that fares best when used with 70VG or 80VG ejuices, at least in my experience. It also goes without saying, but if you’re new to vaping then you might not know this: only use ‘regular’ freebase ejuices with this tank. Nicotine salt ejuices should not be used with the Falcon Legend unless they are very, very low strength (<5mg/ml). I personally used 6mg freebase ejuices for my time with this tank.

The airflow with both coils is the same; a slightly restricted direct lung draw with the airflow open, and a restricted direct lung draw with the airflow closed down. Wide open, this tank isn’t nearly as airy as Falcon King. It’s most similar to the Falcon 2. If you like to have no restriction with your tanks then the Falcon Legend may disappoint you. For anyone who likes a slight restriction to their draw though, the way the airflow hits wide open is perfect.

Both of these coils are rated for 65-70W, but they take more wattage without an issue; I went up to 85W with both of these coils before the flavor started to feel a bit muted. 75-80W is the sweet spot though, delivering bunches of flavor and perfectly warm vapor.

These coils are similar to HorizonTech’s other coils, where they can be pushed past their wattage rating to put out even better performance. I think that HorizonTech is conservative with their wattage ratings to prevent newer vapers from burning out the coils, however pushing the coil past the wattage rating may also affect longevity. The better performance is worth it to me though, and I suggest you try setting the wattage a bit higher and seeing for yourself. 

Out of the two included coils, the M8 was my favorite. The flavor is a bit fuller than the M6 and the clouds are a bit fuller too. The M6 is a good coil too, but I found the flavor to be less than the M8, although the vapor feels a bit smoother and less dense. All things considered, the two coils are extremely similar and both are great when vaping at 75-80W.

These coils don’t have an issue with wicking either, nor does the Falcon Legend have a leaking issue when used regularly. The only time that I had any leaking from the airflow control ring was when I let one of my tanks sit for two days. With regular use, I didn’t have any leaking, dry hits, or spit back.

Like HorizonTech’s other tanks, you can expect to go through quite a bit of ejuice with the Falcon Legend. Another con to point out is that the airflow is pretty noisy, although there’s no turbulence or roughness to the draw. It doesn’t whistle, but it is loud.


Verdict

The HorizonTech Falcon Legend is yet another great tank from the company known for their flavorful coils. This tank is a great one overall from all aspects, with a clean design, lots of coil options, a nice draw, and good flavor.

If you’re looking for a first tank, or even for an upgrade to the one that you have, the Falcon Legend is a great option to look at. The performance is on-par with HorizonTech’s Aquila tank, but the benefit here is that you have ten coil options as opposed to the two with the Aquila.

The few complaints that I have with the Falcon Legend are that the airflow can be loud, the AFC ring is difficult to adjust at first, and that the tank uses a lot of ejuice. But I think that I can look past all of these as they aren’t dealbreaking cons and the performance of this tank is good enough to overlook a few minor faults.
