    The price being high is probably cause it’s new, if interested keep your eye out. Prices always lower after they’ve been out for a while.

    I'll just add this thought.....there really is no BEST anything when it comes to vaping. There are some really awesome products out there but best is hard to define. If you love it, and it works for you and you cant live without it, then that would be the best for you and i guarantee that someone else will hate it for whatever various reasons. Happy vaping!!

    There is some truth to the last few posts. But to have a comparison based upon objective reasoning would be a nice tool or guide if you will.

    For example I can tell you that I have found with the light up Big Baby Beast tanks the mesh and even more the strip coils are very hard to thread in even using a great amount of force because they have a metal disc on the bottom.
    I realize that is a tank issue not a coil issue really but it is an example which comes to mind.

    Also once I find the coils I want I can then look at certain sites that usually have good deals and will buy them there.
    Right now not many places carry the strip coils for the BBB tank. Not even the Smok store. But there are a few online retailers. If you are only buying one box then I have found them for $14.20 including shipping. I have been hoping an online store I have a good relationship would get them in as if I can get all my items from the same site it is going to be just one shipping fee.

    While there are many reasons I like the mesh at times I like the "strip" ones better.
    When I first got a Big Baby Beast tank with a mod kit the coils had a huge failure rate. I knew what the issue was. Finally they seem to have fixed it as it has been a long time since I have had a bad coil from Smok. That is a bit of information that owners of light up BBB tanks would appreciate before purchasing them I think.

    Right now I am happy with what I am using now but always willing to try something new and if there was a lot of people that swore by some other mesh coil that fit I would likely at least try them.

    Yes, I have the VV Mesh RTA and have burned my throat several times with dry hits. Still trying to get the wicking just right to avoid this. I don't like guessing to see if I get a good hit or a harsh dry hit. FRUSTRATING!

    Agreed, it is quite frustrating. So much so that it ruins the experience completely for me since I'm always worried about that nasty dry hit. I sold my VV Mesh RDA on the classies here and never looked back. It's been a while since I posted about it, though. Since then, mrjustright1 released his Profile RDA.

    This one looks like it might finally eliminate that worry of getting the dreaded dry mesh hit. It's worth looking at if anyone's still considering mesh.

    I got the Profile and it is a great rda. I also use Digiflavor mesh pro rda which works well also. The mesh pro is better if you like an open airflow. The profile is good at restrictive pulls. As far as getting the wicking right it is pretty easy. I clamp one side of the mesh down, twist up the wicking, tuck it underneath the mesh while clamping the other side. Then I untwist the wicking and it’s nice and tight. That’s really the only trick to avoid dry hits. Having the wick tight under the mesh to prevent the dreaded dry hit.
