Cotton Bacon Prime
Going to order a pack. The v2 worked well for me. Figure I give it a go.
Pretty curious about this as well. Keep us posted!
I’m not personally a believer in cotton bacon. IMHO Cotton is cotton is cotton. If I wanted long fibers I’d go with a rayon spoil myself.
This is one of those things subject to taste though so many will differ.
Yup, different strokes and all. I’ve been using CB so long, I’ve just become very comfortable with it and it’s nuances.
I am intrigued by the “faster wicking” claim. If it should prove true, I’ll definitly be giving it a spin in an RTA or three.
Yeah I know what you mean, I've tried a lot of different wicking material and I'm mostly with Koh gen Do with an occasional Native Wicks Platinum. The so called "zero break in" is such a myth, there's always a bit of a break in period and for the cost plus ease of use I stick with KGD.
As far as Rayon goes, I can't stand it and yes I did it right and gave it a good effort but contrary to the hype it also has a taste and I can't stand it. Along with the dry throat it gives along with if you ever are unfortunate to get a dry or burnt hit it's the most vomit inducing experience ever.
I'd say the "faster wicking" is marketing hype, but I'll more than likely try it just to form my own opinion of it. For me Koh gen Do wicks more than fast enough along with I'm also comfortable with it's nuances.
^^^ IMO there is a clear difference in break in time between CB and KGD. For me, it’s like 1-4 vs 6-8 hits, respectively. My package of Prime comes in on Tuesday - not expecting a drastic difference, but if there’s a noticeable improvement, then hey...
After I juice my coils I always fire them a few times before I assemble everything so it's mostly negligible.

Not going to be an in-depth review - I’ll save that for the pros and enthusiasts. Dimensions of each strip are roughly the same. To the touch the Prime feels ‘more dense,’ and it doesn’t have that silky feel that the v2 does. What that means for performance? I can’t say. I wicked some up in a dripper, and well... it works just fine.
I'm glad I found my wicking "nirvana" early on. Lots of rayon around this household, LOL. Thank goodness as it seems there are endless varieties of cotton to try.... I am glad you like it though.
CelluCotton (Rayon) was a total fail for my uses.
My first choice for years has been RxW. But I have been using CBV2 for my 'cotton' wicks in the gear I ran cotton in since it came out (retired the KGD). No issues at all with it for me... and I have a large stash of it. So doubt I'll bother with a so called new/improved version of it. I already have mountains of wick materials around here (going back up to 5 years) that is no longer used for vaping.
