I think we’ve reached a weird point in vape tank design. While 25-26mm diameter tanks (and bubble-shaped expansion glass parts) are all the rage, I don’t think we’re ready for a wealth of 30mm atomizers. Because the Blitz Enterprises FP RTA is an absolute gargantuan tank if there ever was one.
But do you know what else it is? A fantastic rebuildable tank, with simple, straightforward airflow and deck design, and effortless, satisfying performance. It also has a celebrity endorsement – from someone named “The Vaping Postman” so I’m clearly not alone in liking the format. Let’s see why.
Even surrounded by a litany of oddly named vape devices, the FP moniker raised some questions. And a little web perusal revealed that this RTA’s given name is the horrendous “F-ck Pig.” I’m no wilting flower and can handle a lot of swearing on any given day. But to name a flagship atomizer like this just reeks of self-serving, attention-seeking garbage.
To keep the theme alive, let’s just call it “bullshit.” The vaping industry needs legitimacy, not junior-high school product naming. Was “Fat Pig” already taken? It’s just immature, and not indicative of the quality that lies behind the name. To be fair, I didn’t see anything in the documentation or on Blitz’s website indicating this was the case, but more than a few websites confirmed the meaning of “FP.” And where there’s smoke… well… let’s focus on the vapor.
Hell, even though it’s not a good name, either, “Fat Pig” would have made more sense, since the massive FP looks like a travel coffee mug sitting in the box. And the included bubble glass – which increases capacity to 6mL – makes this thing look even more unwieldy.
But that’s no typo; despite the size, the FP maxes out at 6mL of eliquid capacity (4mL with the stock glass installed). This comes courtesy of the equally massive build deck, which leaves precious little real estate between the chimney and the glass wall. So, even with a tank the size of a pool noodle attached to your mod, prepare to refill early and often!
Overall, the FP is a lesson in unadorned, no-frills design. While the tank is nicely machined, with quality knurling, nice threads and fantastic airflow, there’s nothing spectacular about it, except for its size. The large “FP” engraved in the side of the chimney is a “miss” for me, but I’m sure others won’t mind it. I suppose anyone willing to bring a giant tank out with them isn’t too worried about subtlety.
The build deck is also a proven design – dual ceramic clamp posts, each held down by a single screw, give build enthusiasts plenty of room to get creative. So far, I’ve experimented with a variety of single- and dual-coil configurations, and all have worked beautifully. I had a MINOR amount of trouble with finer-gauge wires slipping from the clamp’s grip, but overall, the FP deck is a builder’s playground.
The internal airflow is just as nice as the AFC, with a honeycomb-patterned base that brings air straight through the coils and up the chimney, which results in some seriously warm, flavorful vapor performance.
Finally, the top-fill ports are tremendous, so even the squattiest bottles and droppers will work flawlessly. And even my more-debatable wick jobs resulted in smooth, leak-free performance. Not that the FP is difficult to build and wick upon, but I was trying some different things, and the wicking reflected that. Thankfully, the performance didn’t waver one bit.

Observations While Vaping
With such a large footprint and domineering presence, one would expect the FP to be all about clouds and power. But nothing could be further from the truth. While the FP can chuck fog with the best of them, it turned out to be a “gentle giant” of sorts, providing baby smooth draws and surprisingly nuanced flavor performance.
The gap between sub-ohm tanks and rebuildables has narrowed considerably, with many people saying that tanks are actually outperforming the time-honored rebuildable devices for flavor. But the FP serves as a welcome reminder that a well-built and wicked RTA can offer a ton of flavor and satisfaction without worrying about an endless array of costly disposable coils.
Whether used as a restricted lung atomizer with limited airflow and a modest build, or pushed as a low-resistance beast, the FP is ready for all comers. I found that mid-wattage (40-80 watts), low-resistance use offered the best combination of flavor and warm vapor production, but know that it’s more than versatile enough to handle your needs.
My one complaint? The constant need to refill the limited chamber. Even in the 6mL configuration, the FP is as thirsty as RTAs get, so again, keep that eliquid close by, you’re gonna need it.
Another final observation? Make sure you have a bigger mod ready to handle the 30mm girth of the Blitz FP. Obviously, this isn’t for a narrow pen vape, but the height and weight of the tank make it a tipping risk on many common vape mods. Even shorter and wider devices became top-heavy with the FP attached, and I wasn’t entirely comfortable leaving it on a bar, at risk of being knocked over by a stiff breeze.
(Pro Tip: The Smoant Ranker did a great job handling any appearance and balance issues.)
If you’re tired of your Aromamizers but still want a 30mm RTA, the Blitz FP should be atop your list. Its smooth, no-nonsense performance defied its monstrous size, with nuanced flavor and delicate adjustment to handle any type of vaping style.
Though the capacity is a little disappointing for a 30mm tank, the FP’s flavor and vapor far outweigh the inconvenience of carrying eliquid in your pockets. Now, about that rumored name…
