    Still agree with @Rob Fisher definitely the best cotton in the market, suggest everyone at least try it.

    Not hard to wick with either, I would suggest taking cotton off the top(The longer side), easier to peel off and handle.

    I'm going for a little holiday to Durban this weekend so I'll stop by the sirs on the way in and pick me up a pack.

    I was one of the first people on this forum to buy this cotton. Tried it. It's crap. My CBP is way better (for me, that is).

    If I happen to have some handed to me I'll try it. I've tried so many and bacon prime just beats everyone by 100miles. Including bacon v2!

    don't get any flavour difference. a bit like kendo gold in texture and how the juice beads of it. definitely no cotton taste. for the price I will stick with CBP.

    Bought a pack of mavaton and i am very happy with it. Was a big cotton bacon prime fan and i am sold on the mavaton. Flavours are more clear and defined. Its like comparing 720p to 1080p.

    Just goes to show there are horses for courses... for me, there is nothing to touch Mavaton X and CBP I dislike intensely.

    Interesting thread. Found one vendor in Australia that sells Mavaton x at AU$ 42 a packet. That's seriously expensive with cotton selling between AU$ 6 to AU$12 a tin. The talk of the town as the best cotton in AU is this one. It's called KGB Kotton. Sells for about AU$ 12 a tin.
    Saw a thread on a AU social media site a while ago and all the vapers sworn to it being the holy grail of vaping cotton. I have a tin but haven't tried it yet. Like 80 % of my stash bought for that you never know one day to use. The few times I've wicked I've used BCP and it was ok. But then I don't wick much diy still prefer my better attys and coils I've stocked up on. My current goto atty is the Zeus sub ohm and it's in a class of its own.

    Good review of KGB found here..

    That is seriously expensive cotton in Oz, Over here its sold for much less, R250 but for us that's quite expensive, I'm not a fan of CBP at all, it mutes the flavor but I heard its great with dessert which I despise, I like fruity flavors with ice so CBV2 is a winner for me. Def going to try this Mavaton X though and see if the hype is real.

    Something that I must mention but for the past 1 - 1.5 years I have been having these strange chest pains that I only feel if I cough(Hardly ever) or sneeze. After switching to Mavaton from Kendo these chest pains have gone.

    OK, after reading that you could say it is the cotton, but not really, it is how our receptors react to the molecules that are released when the juice is vaporized along with some molecules from the cotton and the wire.

    Just like wines, our receptors react. Not that the wine is crap, the correct term is

    :It is not to my palette.

    The same should apply to cotton, the cotton is not crap, it is just "not to your palette"

    @dombank it's a parcel reviving and consolidation company. You sign up and get given a US Address (and they do the UK as well)... then you ship parcels to it and they store the parcels for you until you are ready to ship and then you DHL it to SA. Their DHL pricing is pretty good as well. You can't ship things like batteries and glues etc or any animal products but normal goodies are just fine. When the items arrive in SA you are charged a documentation fee as well as Vat.

    So I haven't exactly had the best luck with Mavaton X. Bought some from Sir Vape, and been having issues with it not soaking up the juice, not wicking very well.

    Pics below demonstrate my issue, hoping @Rob Fisher or others would be able to assist me, I have no idea what i could be doing wrong. Also getting dry hits like mad.

    So over here, i have threaded enough for what i feel would be right for a 3mm ID coil.
    20210101_204523.jpg


    Have tucked the wick in and put a drop of juice on the top. As you can see, the juice literally sits as that drop forever. Cotton does not soak it in.
    20210101_204623.jpg

    Now I have to try force the juice in with the bottle gently tapping the juice in so it absorbs into the cotton.
    20210101_204740.jpg


    Here you can i've gotten most of the cotton to soak it up, but you can still see some dry spots that won't take in the juice.
    20210101_204941.jpg


    And then here is some TFC Elite on the right and Mavaton on the left. With the mavaton the juice just rolls off and falls on the mat.

    @Jmpb I make sure my wick is saturated and test-fired and then fill the tank. Never had an issue ever. I'm at a loss as to why you are having a hassle. :(

    Yeah me too, The cotton is very fluffy from the get go, I'm not sure if I have to really roll up and compress the cotton basically before use.

    It looks good to me. How tight is the cotton inside the coil? There is a good video on Crafted Coil's facebook on the subject using a Reload(The RTA/RDA does not matter). Also do as Rob suggested and saturate the cotton and fire a few times.

    If that fails, try using slightly less cotton in the wicking channels or make sure the cotton in the wicking channels is fully saturated, you can use tweezers.

    This is the same as Kendo Gold. You have to basically massage some juice into the cotton with your bottle tip and then drop some on the coils and fire at a low wattage for the cotton to start absorbing the liquid. You will see the cotton getting saturated all over and when it looks good you can close up and fill and Vape.

    I've been giving it a try and am really enjoying it. It's a bit more effort to work with, but the sheer neutrality of flavour makes it well worth the time.
