So I got my first RBA about 2 weeks ago a AGA T2 after watching tons of you tube videos on how to set them up... I managed on my first day to get a decent wick and coil going, I was impressed by the flavor. Today I was replacing my wick and coil and I ordered some more SS 400 mesh, Kanthal wire, And 2mm and 3mm silica and some 2mm Ecowool. I have been building coils and wicks all day long in every combo you can think of. Looped 2 and 3mm wicks, looped Ecowool wicks, hybrid wicks with 2mm silica in the middle of rolled SS mesh, Solid rolled SS mesh..
The hybrid wick didnt taste bad it just had muted flavor, but every silica wick I tried had a slightly burned after taste and almost no flavor... My silica was so soaked it was almost dripping so I know I wasn't getting dry hits.
So I went back to my SS mesh rolled around a paper clip so its slightly hollow and my flavor a vape production is back!
Am I doing something wrong or does silica just suck this badly?
Im thinking of getting a RB dripping atomizer but am I going to experience the same taste? Or am I doing something wrong?
