    Hi vapers! So Im still learning the DIY recipe mixing and have many flops, but to keep my tank full I usually get one or two OS to mix that I hope will be good. For me the best OS so far is Red Pill, its was literally a smack in the face and now Im hooked! So please list your favourite OS and the vendor you get it from, help us noobs to navigate this minefield.

    What kind of juice profiles do you like?

    There are SO many one shots it's hard to choose sometimes.

    I like a juice that is balanced, if that makes? Sometimes tobacco with a hard throat hit, sometimes a nice custard . I have tried a few coffee OS that I am certain was ant poison and a bubblegum that burnt my thoat! I would like noobs to avoid these OS so they can also enjoy good stuff while they try mix from scratch.

    I've always enjoyed mixing tobaccos 'from scratch' (recipes or experiments), but very very few of those mixes have come close to Mr. Hardwicks Rodeo (I can't really say that about any non-tobacco one shots that I've tried. There are a few that I enjoy as 'cheats' simply to avoid the tiny bit of effort of finding and mixing a number of concentrates, but none that I prefer above my favorite DIY recipes).

    Rodeo is a hard-hitting true tobacco (not at all an RY4 with just a hint of 'dirtiness'). Although I was never a pipe smoker, I would say that it leans toward a dark and 'sticky' pipe tobacco (it leans very slightly towards the smell of Rum and Maple tobacco, although heavier on the maple {and perhaps a bit of treacle} than on the rum). It's got just the right amount of bitterness, which is gorgeous. It's not overly ashy, but the ash does develop a little bit after a week or two's steep (It works wonderfully as a SnV as well, though). Lastly, it's got this very slight acidic and metallic (in the best possible way) tang that I personally find quite addictive.

    The only negative for me is that (even more so than with other NETs, and it is a VERY dark 'concentrate') it wreaks havoc on coils and wicks (I can vape about a third of the amount of this juice as compared to relatively clear and unsweetened fruity juices before I have to dry burn {a bit more vigorously than usual} and rewick).

    I had bad luck with one shots. After vaping a week and seeing just how much I vaped I had to make a plan. So I got 6 one shots to try while I mix. All had to steep 3 weeks which was the first issue. I had to do shake and vape recipes and got nice ones while waiting the 3 weeks. After 3 weeks I eagerly opened up all 6 was horrible. Next I steeped it more but it was just crap. Last week I threw it all out. My first batches of bad mixing was way better then any of the one shots. I now have great diy mixes and am glad I stuck to it. Keep mixing you will get nice recipes

    @Kiai , absolutely, I got some floor polish and lighter fluid OS, thats why I started the thread so I can hopefully help other not get the same poison! For me if I didnt start getting good OS to vape while I was experimenting with recipes I simply wouldnt be able to continue as money is tight. So I get a OS I know is lekker and a few flavours I need for a recipe , this way I can vape something decent and slowly build up my collection for DIY without my wife having a heart attack
