    You won't really notice the dry hits, lack of flavour is the first hint.

    but give the single coil a try, it's made me like the Pyro much more.

    Extending the wicks won't help, mine is possibly a fraction too long.

    Other solution is shove some SS316L coils in it and whack it into TC mode.

    Shouldn't be a problem with the cotton then! Honestly, this just sounds crazy, must be the juice like @Sam's Vape Reviews said

    Only other thing to rule out is hotspots but I can't see that being the case

    SS316 and TC is my next step. That's if I can master flat winding 3 core fused Clapton.

    Hotspots was a real suspect, but there weren't any, upon checking.

    Have you tried that juice in any other tank or dripper?

    I was thinking there was a bit more cotton in that build, than I would have used.
    Thing is, far from losing flavour, it intensifies just prior to the cotton breaking. Then it starts to lose flavour and show signs of drying hits.

    Yeah. But only in the Mesh Pro. Thinking on it though, the quad coil did have a very disappointing life of about a week and a half.

    I had the same issue with a Reload RTA and cotton bacon prime for a while, no matter the liquid. Problem was not packing enough cotton. For something like a Pyro V2, or anything with long legs and cotton capilarity dependant, it’s my go to. Just put the cotton quite tight, and brush the legs thoroughly. I’ve wicked Pyro V2’s for clients, always with CB Prime and no issue. It just likes being packed a lot tighter than other cottons. I use it in my Terk v2 which also relies on capilarity action and on a mech mod, with 0.12 coils which is a lot of power, no issues whatsoever.

    I know it sounds counter intuitive but that’s been my experience. I used to have the exact same problem until I started packing as much cotton as possible through the coil. Since then, no dry hits, no cotton burning at all, no spitbacks... just pure flavour and wicking like a champ. I’ve yet to see a cotton that wicks as fast and reliable as CB prime does. Wotofo’s laces are close though, but they are really packed as well and are a nightmare to brush.

    Most greatful for the considered reply.
    To me its not "counter intuitive" at all. I've found more the one tank that likes it's coils packed and tails thinned.
    It was something I was considering as the culprit.
