My 1st post. Hello everyone. I've been a member here for about 5 years or there-a-bouts. Also smoked my last cig on January 1st 2013 and started vaping my Bloog KR808d the same day. But that's another story. I have been trying to find cartos that perform as well for me as the Bloogs. No luck. From what I have researched on here, I have tried standard and low resistance Halo's and Smokeless Image's Volt and some others. Nothing has even came close. Strangely enough, a friend that I got started vaping on Bloogs has made the switch to Halo cartos and claims he can tell no difference, yet I get no flavor and hardly any throat hit that I crave. Is the Bloog Cartomizer special in some fashion I don't understand ?? The LR cartos I tried from Halo were certainly hotter which seemed to kinda' give a more roasted taste that wasn't satisfying at all. The regular cartos were pretty much dead. I tried several cartos of each brand to be sure I just didn't get the occasional dud. We both use Halo for our batteries and chargers. He smokes regular tobacco flavors and I smoke menthol. Thanks to this wonderful forum, I discovered Arctic Wolf menthol juice sold by Vapor God. I mix 38.5% with 38.5% of their Menthol and 23% of their Fire Hots. All flavors are at 36mg. From reading this Forum, it's obvious that what people get from different equipment is certainly subjective. I also realize that the cig-a-likes are old hat, but I prefer to remain with them because the mods certainly don't fit well with the culture I live in- and the 510 style is too heavy to hold in my teeth as I work with both hands (a bad habit I've formed over 47 years of cigs/ecigs. And my 2 purchases of 510s were a very messy experience because of leaking tanks or my inexperience with them a couple years ago. (But WOW! They sure put out great taste!) If I could find a carto that performs like the Bloog did for me would be my easiest solution. Has the leaking tank problem gone away on the 510s ? I could learn to live with those perhaps. Is there a solution for me ? What was special about the Bloog cartos ??
