First of all I have no ill will agains anyone that vapes any set-up and I appreciate that we can all find something to love.
Second of all I think the REO lineup is the best APV available for durability and portability ..... but I firmly believe that there are dozens of device that can vape just as good or even better but thats a matter of taste.
Apparently my taste is not normal .... I guess ??
You may have seen me post before that I don't understand the micro coil cotton craze. Well I realized that I have not given it a fair shot because I'm vaping so many things through out the day it may not have gotten the time it deserved.
So at 5pm eastern it will be 48 hours of nothing but mircro coils / cotton for me.
Chalice with 1.1 ohm on 2.1 mini
Chalice with 1.8 ohm on VV Woodvil
RM2 with 1.0 ohm on Woodvil (Had to go borrow back one of the RM2 attys I gave away)
Spoiler alert on verdict ..... at 5pm today will be the last time I vape a micro/cotton set-up.
I'm not here to slam anyone and I realize everyone has different tastes its just post after post of people raving made me want to give it a shot again. Heck if there is something better out there I want to experience it. The problem is its not better for me ..... not one bit.
I guess the thing that stands out the most is how the flavor produced from this set-up could be considered better than other things. For example things I think produce much better flavor than micro/cotton would be.
Well most anything not limited to but including ......
Any RBA with simple silica build
Any Genesis with simple mesh/kanthal build
Kayfun with silica
Even Boge carto in the new ZenII carto tank.
(All things I vape daily)
Its been a while since I've vaped a vivi nova but I think thats included as well.
I just get a terrible taste from cotton .... always have and its altering the juice flavor big time.
I also don't get any indication that a micro coil simulates lower resistance at all. my 1.8 example I had to pump up to 4.7 or 4.8 to make it even doable. In fact I tried hard to get a 1.3 because thats what I vape my silica builds at. I did get there on the 3rd try with 30g but I would have needed VV for it to work. I had to go 1.0 or 1.1 to feel like my 1.3 ohm silica builds so for me its the exact opposite effect.
This next sentence may make me sound like an ass but her goes. What the heck were all you people doing wrong on your previous vapes that makes the micro/cotton seem so much (or any) better ??? I really wish I could get together with some of you and we could swap equipment and get to the bottom of this. Is it just a matter of taste or what?
I'm super stoked about the work all of you have done perfecting the micro/cotton set-up because it seems to be causing an influx in REO success lately. No one deserves all the success in the world more than Rob .... No one.
Well thats about all I can say I guess. I'm sitting here with my spool of silica at the waiting and I'm seeing my buddy Saturday night to return the RM2 to his arsenal.
My Sister is here tonight and we are having a 24 TV marathon (She's only seen season 1-3)
Beside me on my end table will be:
VV Cocobolo with Chalice at 1.3 ohms of 4 wrap silica greatness.
Kayfun Lite with 1.5 ohms of slica yummy on my Zen Sidewinder mod.
Zen genesis with 1.2 ohms of 400 mesh /28g awesomeness
3 of the best vapes I have ever experienced ......... Weird huh ??
