    Admit I do not own a N2s but I will answer as best as I can based on spec of AFC.....

    The original Nautilus 2 had 5 air holes increasing in size.....

    The Nautilus 2s has 5 air holes of the same size it seems of modest size
    so it "seems" the total airflow from the N2s is not as great overall as the N2
    (but the N2 was really known for its fucking tighter than a nun's......)

    The Zlide has 4 modest air holes all the same size

    The Zenith - both D22 & 24mm version have 5 air holes (same size)

    Did a quick draw test on airier N2 vs Zlide & N2 (note not N2s) just edges it
    (as Vic would say & there ya go folks etc....)

    However Zenith vs N2 - the Zenith just edges it over the N2 imho

    So based upon the above bollocks - I doubt if the N2s would offer much more flow over Zlide
    (as the the air holes are are all same size, no jumbo holes like on N2, but still 5 vs 4 on Zlide)

    The Zenith - yes I reckon it offers more flow through AFC, but still not a restricted lung

    Have you tried the other drip tip supplied, that should give a bit more draw through the tip maybe
    or slightly alter your vape style to a slower slightly longer steady draw perhaps ???
    sort of shit like that before you start going nuts looking at other tanks that are hit/miss for you

    Personally from a few puffs/draws on Zlide Vs N2 Vs Zenith......

    I can't really see the N2s - which I have not got I admit.....
    but based upon what I do have, the N2s being same size....
    I don't see the N2s offering a real improvement over the Zlide

    New tank, new coils etc.....

    I would be inclined to try the Zenith - at least you got the coils already

    Or look at other mid range restricted tanks than can go tighter if that is what you are after

    Or RTA blah blah blah, air flow options/inserts blah blah blah

    EDIT - this was just very basic basic draw test through the AFC wide open etc.....
    It is NOT a conclusive test as different coils used have wider/narrow bores etc.....

    EDIT EDIT - The N2s has a slot or Cylops slot if you keep turning the afc
    so ignore the 5 or 4 hole comparison.....

    review:

    https://www.ecigclick.co.uk/aspire-nautilus-2s-review/

    still a bit of a fuck pig on the coil change refilling, which the N2 was well known for
    & why I fucking gave up with it - was a bit hit n miss refilling the bastid out & about
    I'd start to open her to refill it, coil had a 50/50 chance of unscrewing also
    and remainder of juice pissed all over you at times - nah fuck that

    I don't think the coils lasted as well as Z coils - nah I gave up on N2 like many
    but some still love it and purchased the N2s, but I just moved on myself

    The N2s "could" offer you that bit extra you are seeking....
    but imho don't expect it to be as easy peasy as your present tank to use

    I was aware of the potential bit of agro on N2 but thought it will be fine....
    in hindsight I should have paid attention a little more, but live n learn as they say

    The Nautilus 2s has air holes on one side and a massive open slot on the other. From memory I'd say it is more airy when fully open than the Zlide. There's so many fake Nautilus coils around though, and just as many authentic but dud coils, that I stopped buying them. I wouldn't encourage Aspire to keep producing shoddy coils. Shame because when they work they work well. Better than the Zenith coils IMO. Zenith coils would seem to be more reliable but that said I haven't used my Zlide as much.

    EXACTLY my initial reaction (well, on the Zenith & minus the melon twist)
    wise decision & enjoy your new tank sir

    If the Nautilus coils that come with the sxk billet box & bantam box are anything to go by, they ain't a patch on the Innokin Zenith coils.

    The new Zenith/ Zlide 1.2 ohm coils are supposed to be even better. Be interested to give them a go.

    Pretty sure they are not out yet. Will probably be released with the Zenith Pro tank.
