I'm in the same boat recently. I've tried every carto known to man and none of them have ever been that great. I've tried dual coils, triple coils, boge, smoketech, kanger, ikenvape, MKIII (the svr cartos), etc. I have an M1A1 from notcigs too, and while that's a HUGE improvement over having to top off every half hour it's still not perfect. The functionality of the tank rests in the hands of the carto. I'm sick of cartos deciding to randomly leak for no reason whatsoever, tighten up, get burnt, etc. No two cartos ever work the same. The quality control on them is aggravatingly terrible.
It's funny to see this thread though, this is exactly the way I've been feeling this week. I'm just at wits end trying to make it work consistently. I love the hell outta my buzz but everything I attach to it seems to be meh in some way shape or form.
I think my next move is gunna be trying some of the CE style or the stone tanks. That's the one thing I haven't tried yet and I'm hoping to be pleasantly surprised but I've learned not to expect a lot.
I've also been eyeing the new surge tank too.. maybe attys are the way to go in the end. My only experience with attys was on my ego when I first started vaping and wasn't impressed. Maybe a year later it's time to revisit them.
Are there any atty's out there that perform decently and don't have a tight draw?? I can't really deal with anything tighter than boges and I remember that was one of the primary reasons I never gave them another try. Drawing on something tight all day makes my neck hurt.
I recommend trying the ce4 stardust first. Imo, these are the best design so far. You can still get a dry hit if your juice is low and you don't tilt it enough for the juice to come up to the wick. I'm used to tilting down and back up even when the juice is full (habit developed from ce2s lol), so it's not a problem for me. Flavor is very close to dripping imo. I plan on repairing mine, so each one should last me for a while.

Edit: If you decide to try these and don't have an ego type connection, be sure and pick up a 510 to ego adapter. I have the one from gotvapes so I can use the stardust on my bolt.

The Star Dust doesn't actually use the eGo threads, it uses the 510 threads, however the skirt that comes down to cover the eGo threads will not work on some batteries that do not have the extended part for the eGo threads. A 510 to 510 adapter (sometimes 2) is all that is usually required.

Moved to Atomizer, Cartomizer and Tank Discussion
I've had my share of trials and tribulations in the last month, mostly due to using vg only. I've received lots of good advice and suggestions so I can only say what seems to be currently working for me.
The Resurrectors from CCV have come to be my favorite and I even use them in my DCT. (of course I have to punch the holes bigger but it works out) I was getting frustrated w/ the Boge 2.0 LR as I thought the draw was too airy and even now when I switch from a Resurrector to a Boge, it still is airy but I've come to appreciate them more - Just need to take longer, slower draws.
Just started using a Stardust (and couldn't find the Stones on GotVapes unless they're named s/thing else) and my personal opinion of it is that it's a tight draw... like s/one described the Boge to be... but that might be due to the juice. Idk. Still, it seems to wick decently and there's a good, warm vape if you draw on it twice.
Btw... these experiences have been on a kGo. Recently just tried a Go-go and while I didn't much care for the colored carts you can buy w/ it, I do like the DC 3.5ml clear cartos for it.
Use 510 lr 1.6-2.0ohm boges, BDV's I'll mama tank, Provari V2
Hmm... I have a VMod XL and I love it with an Aero 1.5 ohm 510 bridge-less atomizer. Some people love them with a HH.357 1.5ohm 510 atomizer.
Maybe a Zenesis mod when they are available again... rebuildable atty with a tank. Seems pretty awesome.
