    Phiniac Tank

    My Phiniac XL tank arrived today so I primed a carto, inserted my carto tool and lubed it up. Got the carto in no problem and started screwing it onto the Hippo v2 that is attached to my Provari. It wasn't sitting flush I tightened it a little and juice started dripping out the Hippo. It was because the carto was too easily able to slide out of the tank. Much juice spilt and a few swear words later, I got it off. So I worked out not to over tighten it so there is a gap between the tank and the Hippo. Still works OK but not real happy. I'm hoping that once it settles in the carto will not be so easy to pull out of the tank.

    I use IBTanked with a wider drip tip to stop it from sliding too much. Try to grob the drip tip and the tank together when screw to/unscrew from the mod. This may be able to prevent future accidents. Some of the drip tip I just change the bigger o ring so it can grab the carto tight enough.

    Thanks for the tip. I'll keep that in mind. These tanks are supposed to really hold on to the carto tho. I watched Phil Busardo use his carto puller thing and it took a lot of effort to pull it out (more than any other tank). I'm hoping mine was easy coz I just filled it and the o-rings were still lubed up.

    The hippo cap adjusts upwards towards the tank to reduce the gap. Got one also don't like it much. It's either a gap at the tank or a gap on the provari.

    Everything else I use sits flush. It's just this Phiniac tank that doesn't
