"High brass" atomizers - different cart performance?

    I've got a couple of the Janty "high brass" atomizers, and I notice different performance from them than I do the "low brass" atomizers I received from Widow's Beadwork.

    The wicking bridge on the 'high brass' atomizers seems to be appreciably taller than on the 'low brass'. I've noticed the following:

    Lower cartridge 'fill' level and easier flooding - I'm presuming this is due to the higher wicking bridge putting more pressure on the fiberfill inside the cart.

    I've also noticed a short-circuit sort of 'pop' from the atomizers, as well - maybe due to the fibers hanging off the wicking bridge that aren't there on the 'low brass' one?

    I do seem to get a little more consistent hit from the high brass atomizers, though....

    Anyone else seeing any of these issues?

    I have both types of atomizers. There is no real difference in performance when comparing 2 of these of the same age. Any new atomizer will out perform an atomizer with some miles on it.

    I'm definitely not *dissatisfied* with the high brass ones, and it's not like my low brass ones are that old - I only got them 10 days ago.

    It's just a little different behavior, and I wanted to make sure it was typical.
