Clearos are an entirely different issue. The Boge I used 2 years ago is just like the Boge I used yesterday. When clearos first came out, they were terrible. I didn't touch a clearo for over a year. As far as I was concerned, cartos were better than clearos. Then came the CE2, CE3, G4, and on and on and on, in a constant stream of improvements.
Up until about 4-5 months ago, I would still have said cartos were better. Then, I found some clearos that were better than any carto, because cartos really haven't gone anywhere, except for the dual coil modification.
Nobody can make a blanket statement that cartos are better or worse than clearos without specifying exactly what model of clearo they're talking about. The difference between one carto and another is fairly minor. The differences between clearomizers is vast and significant.
