    Interesting and brilliant conclusion. I'm using both cotton bacon and 80/20 vg. Has to be high vg but a different cotton choice could be the answer here. I know the rda is great, i just need to learn how to harness it thanks for the reply. Will now go look for cotton threads :14:

    Quick update. Went to local vape shop but no cotton threads in stock. They did however make me a beefy coil there and then a packed it with some cotton bacon for free. Vapes way better already. Still going to try the threads though so ordered a pack to try. Not giving up on the recurve as I'm starting to see what the hypes about :14:

    Good stuff. Glad I helped and always worth sticking with Recurve, there is a reason why thousands rave about a product, it’s just about gettting it right. Also, if you don’t mind, Like or Thanks icon on the forum if people help in any way so thead gets higher up and more people see the suggestions. P.s I don’t work for COTN Threads or have any vested interest at all. I just find the product very very good and like to personally support innovative products that help people and are truly good. So hopefully when you get the cotton you will like it very much. First few vapes as always will taste not great as with most cotton, hence you will see people pulse vape and blow on it a few times, so I don’t usually inhale firs few puffs, but then it kicks in lovely... also, highly recommend a beefy BUT fast to heat (fast ramp up) and fast to cool the coil as well, and most coils don’t do that unless they are built well, so worth investing once in a handmade Alien coil from Smut (search for him on the forum) or someone similar. Most Alien coils on market are not good at all because they have thick outer wire (easy for machines to make) so usually it’s only handmade that can use the very thin outer wires without breaking it. Fast to cool is important too as it avoids the juice over boiling as that can affect taste stored in the cotton and even goes back into the squonker bottle.

    Haven't got any threads yet but re wicked again. Honestly never vaped in so much juicy flavour It's like swimming in it or something. Does need more cotton than I expected but having it all stuffed in there made the recurve really shine. I honestly wasn't expecting it to be this great but if anyone is in any doubt just get it ! Thanks for keeping me at it

    Nice one graham. Told you so :) by the way I recently also bought the Drop Solo just to check the difference, used the same stock coil from the Recurve in the Drop, and Recurve wins on the taste front although it’s a little more air restrictive. It’s just getting wicking right and choosing the best coils for your style of vaping which will be trial and error...will keep the Drop for tasting juices and dripping as has a bigger juice well, but the Recurve will always be my daily driver for squonking, nothing else touches it. Enjoy...

    They are different beasts. The recurve (especially with the 22mm cap) is spot on for a mech squonker but the drop solo really needs a big arse coil and some wattage thrown at it. For its size it's deceptively large on the coil space.

    I've demoted my dead rabbit to a taste tester now. Put in the solid pin and stuck it on an old mod. It's a good rda but not the flavour of the recurve :)
