    Never had this issue with the Profile, only hotspots after rewicking. If you've rewicked that could be the culprit but if not, only thing I can think is the wick has sagged & allowing the juice to flare off. Or excess juice on the mesh but again never had this happen.

    That's the problem I had with the Vandy Vape Mesh RDA, it was caused by cotton sagging, I had hoped the spring loaded base would cure that on the Profile.

    Yeah me too, kind of thought that was the beauty of this RDA!

    I remember them mesh dry hits, still too mentally scarred to attempt it again!!

    When I've rewicked with Muji or any other cotton it's a case of if it feels enough use more. Full muji pad or strip of Cotton Baco/Fuzz seems to do the trick. The spring does help but if there's not enough cotton in to start the weight of the juice counteracts the spring.

    Hi @BULLDOG1964 are you using the 6mm Wotofo 6mm x 60mm cotton. Ive got the Profile and find it works very well with that cotton but not so good with different cotton although i haven't had your problem. The 6mm cotton is very dense and very tight through the mesh when wicking. Cheers

    Oddly enough, change 1 letter in Profile you have Profire.

    I tried about 5 different wicking methods, all worked great but all sagged even my full muji pad and a little extra.

    I'm still loving Mesh in Tanks though, the Saber is my latest treat while I wait for another Falcon with mesh.

    If you need a win I would treat yourself to a Saber from Ace of Vapes, almost as cheap as the Profile but you get a lot more 'bang' for your buck without the fire dry hit from hell.

    POTV gets you 15% off so around £27.20 is a steal, I will be reviewing it this weekend but spoiler alert - LOVING it.
