Still searching for that ultimate Vape and Juice
I find myself constantly trying new devices and new juices. Can't seem to find that all day vape. I currently use an ego C twist with a Viva Nova- had a mini protank II - found it to be too airy (covered all but one hole with tape). Wanted a tighter draw so i am now trying the Viva Nova. Seems to be never ending.
New to vaping too. Odd thing is I don't seem to like tobacco flavours and thought I would. They were the first ones I started playing with and hate them all. My favourite is Vader Puddin'. Oddley enough again, I don't like caramel at all but when it comes to vaping I love it. Same with Vanilla, like it for vaping but not eating. I love fruits but they don't really do it for me for vaping. Go figure. Try some Vader Puddin, I can vape it all day long.
Do you find yourself loving a juice and thinking "this is it....I can vape this all day"...then after a couple days you're sick of it? That is what is happening to me. So unfortunately I don't think I'll ever find something and settle on it for too long
And I feel your pain with equipment too...I love what I'm using, but there are so many methods and types of equipment that I can't help but want the "next best thing"....
Yup same thing I experience- Ohhh this is a good juice and then i get sick of it. Like eating too much chocolate I guess. Yup always seem to be looking for the next best thing. What are u using Louis? DaMann I ordered some tobacco flavors also from Ahulsion- Also a few from EC Blends-
hope I like them.
vape sites and forums are highways that take you further down the rabbit hole
I felt this way the first three months and now I'm vaping RY4 about 50% to 75% of the time. I love the flavor and if you follow the RY4 Roundup in the Liquid review forum, there are plenty of great ones to try. Some of the other tobacco falvors I've tested recently (like HHV Heavenly Army) still don;t do it for me. It's RY4 or bust.

I like Orange Cream, Watermelon and Peach vapes also, but I've stopped buying most other flavors. The juice is key in settling into the "lifestyle" IMO, and it takes a lot of trial and error.
I'm not nearly as enamored with mods, if you find something that delivers that right punch to match your topper you are good IMO. I think everyone could prosper just using an eGo, a Spinner or Twist and a mod. I do like my carto tanks though, I think they are terrific in delivering the desired vape.
All I did when I started was chase that Marlboro Light tobacco taste, which I quickly realized and read on here was never going to happen. Found 2 tobaccos that got me thru the beginning quit stage, Halo's Prime and Torque. I remember telling my local B&M that vaping fruit and desserts was "crazy and I'd never do that". Good thing I didn't plop down a huge wager on that.
Ditto to Lombaowski ^^^^ I'm close to the three month mark, found 5-6 ADV that I love in a great variety so I can mix it up and wanting 2-4 more for just in case I get sick of any, which I doubt at this point i will. I still check out new PVs once in a while but haven't pulled the trigger. Maybe in 2014. I'm pretty happy with what I have.
Also remeber one BIG factor when u first quit analogs, ur tastes buds are going haywire. What you liked in week one of ur quit, you may hate in week two. That's why in the beginning, it's good to try sample sizes before leaping into large quantities. Or, possibly, u may drop nic level quicker than u think. I bought 30 ml bottles in 18mg...too strong for me already.
Its funny how taste is so subjective, i think its part of what makes vaping so interesting. I seem to go through my phases with different types of juice. This month it would be tobacco's, then the next, fruity vapes.
I think what works best for me is to vape something different every day, and come back to the one i started with a few days later. This way i enjoy all my juice, all the time. Although it did take time, trial and error to find a few that i really enjoy.
I came to like the looser draw on the protanks. Have both a protank2 and a mini 2v2. I have a nova as well but don't like it as much. Also have a bunch of evods which I would recommend if you like a bit tighter draw. Nice thing is if you have protank coils already you'll have spares for the evod.
My tastes are actually the opposite of Damann. Love caramel and butterscotch but all of those flavor juices are nasty to me. Some fruit flavors are ok.
I get tired of flavors pretty quick too. I try and take the mindset that I was OK with the same flavor smokes forever so why am I so picky about juice? Here's what I currently do... Protank stays loaded with Mt Dew, red energy or some other flavor I'm more into and can vape a lot of. Mini PT gets loaded with some fruity type flavor. Then I keep an evod or two loaded with mint type flavors (wintergreen, spearmint, menthol, peppermint). I rotate similar flavors through the same tanks. When I get tired of say wintergreen, reload with peppermint.
Always a topic of much discussion.
I've gone through phases where I'm both enjoying the vape and the flavor to such an extent I probably achieved nirvana... for a little while. And other phases where the same juice tastes like nothing but hot air. For the last month I've been unable to taste much of anything except Red Hot Cinnamon, though I've laid off it the past week due to vaping it pretty heavy.
Thought maybe it was my Protanks, maybe what everyone says its true, they give muted flavor. "But how could that be?" I ask, my cinnamon is crazy red hot, sweet, and delicious in it. I've had other juices that tasted phenomenal in them as well. Trying the same juice in my dripper, little or no difference. Alright, so I got a carto tank, just to see what the fuss was all about. Ehhh... I think I prefer my Protank haha.
Right now I'm vaping HHV Shadow, I get little/no taste on the inhale and a gloriously smooth, plume of delicious honey cured tobacco on the exhale. Well. Good enough I suppose.
Going to get an iClear 30 and see how a warmer top-coil vape does on flavor. But sometimes you just have to chase other things if the juice or the flavor isn't cutting it for you. For example, one thing you might find you enjoy just as much as a good flavor/juice is some GOOD throat hit. It's quite satisfying as well.
And if nothing is working for you, get some menthol, and some red hot cinnamon. Vape both. Possibly at the same time. Good quality juices of either can be a nice way to mix up your regular rotation with something a little more extreme. I keep bottles of both on hand just in case nothing else is working for me.
Hope you find a setup that works for you!
Vape well, vape often
Very similar to what I do. It's probably one of the best ways to go about it unless you're lucky enough to find that mythical ADV, and even then, most keep a few flavors on rotation so they don't lose interest.
