    Absolutely! I started when cartos were the big thing. Then I noticed a trend shift towards rebuildables, and I followed along. And here I am again, starting the next trend, cartos again. Simple, fuss free, they don't leak unless your O-Rings in your tank go bad, and they won't with the Slap Yo' Momma tool. I stopped using them after I killed my tank that came with the lavatube trying to get one out of it.

    I still use 1.7ohm "shorty" cartos in my REO when not using an atty.

    Very convenient.

    Yep, still have a few cartos rolling around in the drawer that I pull out every so often to toke on. It almost seems as if (I'm sure they do) cartos become "seasoned", like a good cast iron skillet. There's a nice underlying flavor that develops that nothing else has pulled off yet.
    And no i don't mean the taste of polyfill. Analogs did their job on my tastebuds so I couldn't taste it if I wanted to.

    Protanks definately have a muted flavor compared to carto's

    I started out using cartos. Then used Kanger T3s for a while. I upgraded to an MVP and I could never get a good connection with the kangers. Plus, I was tired of the whole filling process: take it off the battery, flip it upside down and remove coil, very carefully add juice, carefully twist coil back on so you don't get leaks, and put back on battery. Whenever I would refill, I'd always end up with some juice in my mouth.
    Now I use Bella tanks and prepunched Boge cartos. So much easier, plus better taste. I forgot how great cartos are.

    Eh... I OD'd myself on cartos for years. I'm glad vaping has evolved. I've never gotten flavor or vapor from a carto that comes close to a RDA, kalifun, etc. I can confidently say that I will never touch one again in my life. I did step back from years of cartos to a regular ol' 510 atty for dripping.... well actually, an HH357, so hardly a regular 'ol 510 but making that switch made me never touch a carto again. For me, I find significantly muted flavor with cartos compared to everything else I listed.

    Another long time carto/tank user here!! Vaping over 3 years, cartos the entire time! I adopted the tank in January 2012. Never looked back.

    I have tried the vivi, protank, evods....and just cannot get a good flavor. Always muted. And rebuilding is just not for me. I have tried many times, and I just do not trust a rebuildable for out and about. Probably because "out and about" for me is 15 hours away from home at work, where vaping is illegal, and nobody that I work with knows that I do it. I can't exactly whip out my kanthal and cotton wick and rebuild one at work. I need a guaranteed method. Cartos and tanks do the job.

    Long live the carto!!!
