So today we are taking a look at the Tugboat Mod V2. This device was sent to me for review by www.DirectVapor.com
I haven’t really messed around with mechanical tube mods in quite some time. Lately I have pretty much been using regulated box mods.
However after receiving this mod, I have been using it every day for the past two weeks. I have to admit that this full copper mod is one solid mech and I have really enjoyed using it.
Design & Features
The version 2 is a complete redesigned from the original Tugboat mod. It measures in at 24mm in diameter and holds a single 18650 battery. The switch now uses silver plated springs instead of magnets like the original mod.
The Tugboat Mod V2 features a hybrid 510 connection and also includes a matching top cap for your Tugboat RDAs. The top cap is also 24 mm in diameter which will give this setup a flush mounted look.
The top cap has 7 mm airflow slots and also comes fitted with a wide bored delrin mouth piece. In my opinion, the airflow on this top cap is perfect and I see no reason for needing adjustments.
Both the Tugboat Mod V2 and its top cap has a Cerakoted finish and is available in many different color combinations. Cerakoted finishes are considered to be very strong and durable.
Unlike other mods, the Tugboat Mod DOES NOT come in a plain box. Instead, this mod comes packaged in a Vape Sox which is really nice add on.
Something else that should be mentioned is the springs included for the switch. The Tugboat Mod V2 includes two different strength springs for your switch. The pre-installed spring was way too firm so I immediately switched it out with the softer spring.
I have been rocking this mod for the past two weeks and its pretty badass!
I just love the way it looks and I consider the airflow to be perfect. Overall this is just one very solid tube mod.
The Tugboat Mod V2 does retail for around $150 and that may seem like a pretty hefty price. But this is an authentic USA made copper mechanical tube mod. It is up to you to decide if the price is justified.
Direct Vapor does have this mod in stock and at a slightly lower priced tag than $150. The great thing about this online store is that they guarantee to have the lowest priced vape gear or they will match a competitor’s price.
If you had the money and was in the market for a mechanical tube mod, the Tugboat Mod V2 is something to really consider.
