    So.. you are getting flavour, then?

    Did you overstuff your cotton? That'd be the first place I look, send a pic.

    In Partibus Infidelium

    A linguistics professor was lecturing to his class one day. "In English," he said, "a double negative forms a positive. In some languages though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative.


    However," he pointed out, "there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative."


    A voice from the back of the room piped up, "Yeah, right."

    Maybe keep vaping it a bit, let the wick break in. Did you thoroughly saturate the wick with juice before filling the tank? I take it plenty of vape, you just can't taste it, or not really much vape, either.

    Also, what did you build, what are you running it on, and etc.??

    I mean it looks fine enough... what wattage are you vaping at? Could also be a case of vaper's tongue.

    I'm not familiar with that atty, so I'll end things here, but if it were me and that was my first build, it'd be back to the drawing board. Small changes have massive impact, keep at it.

    Assuming you properly worked those coils into an even, tandem glow, and you're getting decent vapour production, you should be tasting something at least, even if not ideal.

    Hopefully someone with the atty will be by soon to give you a little more customized advice. Something as extreme as zero flavour would usually come along with a hackjob of a coil pic, but happily that's not the case here... sadly makes it tougher to diagnose.

    BTW post more detail - resistance, your mod/mode/power, etc. will be helpful.

    Have you tried restricting the airflow? Too much air will dilute any flavors.

    I have and didn't feel an increase here's how long and thin and fluffy the cotton has been

    Yes I don't know that RTA either, but is this your first RTA? Everything seems a bit different in those at first, and wicking is much harder. Your coils look good, I'd consider experimenting with your wicking, but you may not get the same "taste and feel" that you will with premanufactured coils, it's just not the same. Have you tried any other liquids in it other than those two, you might be surprised with the taste of a new liquid that doesn't taste like you are "expecting" it to taste in the BBB tank that you have? Though, I haven't really heard of this problem before, especially since you took it in to get it coiled.

    Airflow matters, but also you may want to try starting out Very Low on your wattage and priming..... You may find the sweet spot in this RTA is much lower than the BB.

    Good luck!

    Could it be the ni80 framed staples I had in before?

    Have you brushed/thinned out the wicks before reassembling the tank using tweezers? Before you reassemble it spread the wicks apart that go into the well, apart inside the well to allow more liquid to get to the wicks.
    Test fire the wicks soaked with liquid before reassembling the tank to make sure you are getting flavor(by smell).
