    Only issue I've had with SS or silica wicks is they dont do well at higher wattages.... or with really thirsty coils..... but a couple puffs at a time to taste test or chase flavor. They are great.

    SS mesh wick and coil on my Sat22 are over 1 year old closer to 2 years... have a kayfun in rotation with 1 year old silica build.

    And this is with using juices and builds that on cotton get re wicked every couple days.

    Try Rayon, it transitions very easily and quickly.

    With rayon, transitioning flavors isn't hard, though I run similar flavor profiles in my tank. I have some ceramic wick laying around that I bought some of (unless it's mesh, not sure, but I think it's ceramic) and haven't been able to rouse myself to do the research to use it. I don't have much of it either so hearing about the learning curve is a bit disheartening, but I am totally satisfied by rayon, for sure. :)

    I switch flavors extremely frequently in my cotton-wicked RDA's. Here is what I do:

    1. Vape the first flavor until the juice well is empty, and juice only remains in the cotton.
    2. With the top cap off, I press the fire button in quick bursts (0.1 - 0.3 seconds) until the cotton is mostly dry. You'll start to see white / dry spots in the wick when this happens.
    3. If the new flavor is fairly close to the original flavor (going from a vanilla cupcake to a frosted donut juice for example), I'll put 10-15 drops of the new juice directly into the juice well, not putting any juice directly on the coil or wicks.
    4. After a few seconds for the new flavor to start saturating the wick, I vape until the juice well is empty again.
    5. From there, I re-drip normally, applying juice directly to the coils and wick.

    If I am moving between two very different juices, such as a banana/strawberry cupcake recipe to a Twinkie recipe, I follow the same procedure, but will first repeat it a few times using unflavored VG until the old flavor is gone. Then I'll start using the new flavor juice.

    I have like 4 different ADV flavors and I don't change wicks until I finally burn them in half and they get stuck on the sides of the chamber and it stops hitting properly heh. Ill just vape a tank until its just about to the point its going to start dry hitting, and then put whatever into it. Flavor has never been affected by this.

    I use cotton bacon. I rewick at about 20ml anyways. I like my first vape to be as good as my last vape. Changing juice which I do every couple days I pick something that I figure will mix well. Vaping a banana base I will switch to another fruit. If a peanut butter I will pick another peanut butter base vape or a vanilla base ect. Works well that way for me but I vape about 15 different juices in rotation and 2 mods with tanks on the go always. Switch back and forth between mods & tanks through out most days. CHEERS!
