April Showers…

Good afternoon lovely readers of Mesh Builds!

I am just a few photographs away from finishing up an article on the Box Reborn by Limelight Mechanics. I’m still in shock that I own this mod and am very excited to share my thoughts on it. It’s not really a review, more of an examination. I knew going into it that I would love the Box Reborn, and you can’t write an impartial review that way. I do hope you’ll enjoy it.

The In’Ax Mk III is the next atomizer to get reviewed! It has been performing quite well, and hopefully my review on it will be useful. They’re in stock at VapinArt in case you don’t feel like waiting on a review. Pro tip: get the threaded boulon center pin replacement. Life is much more radical with it.

I’m zeroing in on the Heron V2 and getting a build right for it. I just put a new build in there last night and am leaving it at home. I have a few tests, but I think this might be it, which is fantastic.

The EVL Reaper is also in my home! I put the mini kit on there right away and it goes through 2mL at a time relatively quickly. I have more I want to do with it and am still getting my build just< right. It’s not difficult to make it functional, but I think I can really make this atomizer stand out (as it should given its price point).

The Tube Atty also has a fresh build in it waiting for me to have some time to use it. I may need to do a few because I have some impressions now that I’ve looked at the innards and put a few tanks through it. We’ll see on that one, but it is relatively low priority.

Over the course of April, I spent a lot of money. I’ll mostly only be purchasing liquid in May, but hopefully there will be sufficient content to keep everyone satisfied. That said, though, I am setting up a Patreon page for Mesh Builds. Funds will go towards new gear and photography materials to keep the reviews coming and coming better. I thought I would be able to sell gear as it came in to keep things on the cheap side, but because of list and randomizer releases that isn’t completely possible.

The site will remain ad-free unless things get really dire, so fear not on that front! I won’t plug the Patreon all the time, but I will thank patrons regularly and will work on some dedicated content just for them!

As always, your appreciation is appreciated. Your patience is appreciated. Your readership is appreciated.

Thank you.

Vacation was Rad! Reviews on the Way

Vacation was great! First one since 2012 sometime. I got out in the sun, had a bunch of drinks, danced my butt off, and got some sun!

I had intended on reviewing the Heron V2 while I was gone, but I had forgotten something on my desk before I left. All my wire for rebuilding. I hadn’t realized that until I was on the ocean after killing my first Heron build, so that’s going to be a bit.

Actually all reviews are going to be a bit. I have a bit of an organizational problem:


I tore up all my everything packing up in a hurry because I’m suuuuuuuuuuuuper great at time management. Sadly tearing all that up is to the detriment of my already lackluster review schedule.

But I also bought my EVL Reaper today! Many things to be excited about, Sat22 is up next!

Oh no! So long away from the site!

Hey everyone, sorry it’s been so long since I’ve updated!

Things have been slammed at both jobs, and when I get home I’ve pretty much just been collapsing instead of being productive and reviewing things, and for that I apologize. Hopefully I will be able to get the izi review finished and photographed this weekend!

Hopefully I will be less slammed in the near future, I do love writing out these reviews.

Deal Alert – MCR 303 Genesis Style Atomizer: $35.00

This is a big deal! The MCR 303 Genesis Style Atomizer is going for $35 USD brand spanking new! That is a deal. I just picked one up, and I’ll be doing a review on it when I have some spare time. I’ll definitely be posting first impressions.

I was looking around at it because I’m trying to find some reference atties. Atomizers that represent the best you can get at a cheap price point (under $50.00). If this turns out to be a permanent price drop, I’ll be setting up a page on reference atties and mods. Ideally, we’ll be able to get you rolling with an authentic, excellently-performing setup for under $150!

The reference RTA is the Kayfun Lite – they can be had for about $50, and a little more for the KFL+. I have another on the way so I can put together a brief re-review on that!

Jump on that deal, though! I can’t wait for mine!

Happy Pi Day, MB!

Happy Pi Day, everyone!

A couple of rad things. First, since Pi is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its radius, let’s talk about circular things:

Josh Homme, Iggy Pop, and some other insanely rad dudes got together to make a record called Post Pop Depression and I will be very excited to purchase it ASAP. I listened to the first minute of Gardenia and I knew I needed it.

Ninja Sex Party released Under the Covers and while they do a lot of covers, I feel that Dan, Brian, and Tupperware Remix Party all do well to put their own twist on the songs while staying true to the spirit of the originals.

Wolfmother also came out with the CD Victorious and while it’s very good, it doesn’t capture me like the original album did. Definitely listen to it if rock and roll is your style.

I also just wanted to talk about the music I’ve been listening to so far this year!

I’ve started blocking out the izi RBA review. It’s an interesting one, and you need to get a little weird with it. I think I’ve found my favorite build for it, and I’m testing with a variety of wicking materials so I can guide you as best as I can! Le Zephyr arrived over the weekend, and my first build was…unsuccessful. Mostly because I was rushed and wanted to see if I could pound one out before heading to a party. Exciting stuff nonetheless!

Enjoy your Pi day, MB! I will hopefully be able to catch some of this lovely weather before the rain starts coming down this evening.
