So I don't do my best work after midnight, after all? Lorikay, you should have thrown that blanket over my cage. I need more sleep... (Sorry, Austin, more inside jokes...) Lorikay is right, though. You can't compare atomizers to cartomizers, really. If you want flavor, TH, vapor--direct dripping is your friend. If you want convenience, well, that's why the cartomizers were invented. BTW, SmokeStik cartos are the most burn proof and the cleanest tasting cartos on the market, IMO. YMMV, of course. Carry on.
