    Hello guys I just built my first coil today and I noticed that I’m getting a cotton under tone when I vape I was wondering if anyone could answer why that is or is it just that I used too much cotton

    The first few vapes will have a cotton taste, but it goes away. If it bothers you a lot you can try rayon.

    It happens when using organic cotton.

    I don't know about that SMOK but the TFV4 took a while to break coils in. It's normal.

    Something that will hel a little bit is put a drop or two of juice on the wick right before you pull it into the coil. It does take a bit for the cotton to get completely saturated and broke in.

    Boiling will not remove or prevent cotton taste.. it will remove other possible flavors like bleach and peroxide and it make the cotton absorb and transport juice better.

    Cotton (and rayon) have a break in period and the method of saturating your coil and wick and firing it on your ohm's reader will certainly help I do that with my rayon which (I personally) think has a shorter break in period.

    With that said can you post a pic of your build? I mean, you may be MASSIVELY overwicking to the point that all you are tasting is cotton, and in that case, your wick may (or may not) need some attention but it would be something to rule out, etc.

    I had the same when I was using some free cotton that came with my coilmaster kit. I switched to Kendo Vape Cotton - Gold Edition and through some experience now I kind of know how much cotton to use. I don't taste anything now and it tastes great from first vape.

    Missing a lot of critical details here like what cotton and Brand are you using? Cottonballs, Japanese Cotton, Organic Cotton, Supima, Cotton Bacon V1, V2 or Prime, Native Wicks, Kendo, etc., etc., etc.?

    Pictures of your wicking would also greatly assist.

    To me the vid is overkill. I just do almost the same as vid except I just pulse it and let it smoke while blowing on the wicks. I usually do it 3 times, each time of course adding more juice to keep the coil and wicks saturated. This will remove any cotton/rayon taste. I am ultra sensitive to that taste and had it on ALL cotton I tried. It did not matter who made the cotton wicking. And I also had that taste with rayon/cellucotton. 'Smoking' the coil and wicks before putting the tank on does the job for me. Everytime.

    :)

    The initial cotton taste was one of the reasons I switched when I tried Rayon. You get a little flat flavor from rayon for the first few hits and it's gone. Then, the vape is fine.

    I used cotton for several years and tried Egyptian, Koh Gen Do, and various other cotton types and brands. Some were better than others, but Rayon is king in my book.

    Koh gen Do was my mainstay until Cotton Bacon Prime nudged it out, never was thrilled with CB V2. As for Rayon, can't stand the taste nor the dry throat it gives me, yes I didn't it right and used Sally's.

    I also use cotton as my wicks. Just read a lot about rayon, really love it but I do not have any chance to use it (I can not find any dealers in my country have it in their store, they just have Muji).
    I use to prime my new coil with Rip Tripper's method. The cotton will break in immediately.

    Rayon, it’s the cure for that cottony taste. Plus it’s cheaper, leaving more money for frivolous mod, rda, and RTA purchases. ... is going on with the Bears?!?!? Cmon, man the cardinals suck, geez. Sorry watching football as I type.
