    I've been using KGD for over 3 1/2 years. It's probably time to try something else, but I can't get myself to spend $5 on a tiny pack of cotton bacon. Might try a box of that cotton coil out though.

    ~$4 and a box has lasted me close to 3 years so far and it looks like I still have about 1/4 of it in the glass cannister I keep it in.
    I like it.
    worth a shot for $4 I would think.

    I paid about $3.29 as I recall but I am sure the price has gone up.
    Economic growth you know ;)

    Now I am into Cotton Bacon V2. Bought a couple years worth of that and then CB Prime came out :gaah:

    Been using organic balls from Walgreens for several years. Recently tried bacon prime and it’s better in every way. Wish I knew why. No experience with anything else.

    I've only used koh gen do and CB V2, but I think I like them equally. The CB is easier to work with, but I feel like the KGD lasts longer and maybe even wicks a little better.

    I would probably not have bought the CB, if I hadn't found a bundle on eBay. I was looking for Lightning Vapes 30ga Ni80 wire. 100' of wire is $4.80. 100' of wire with a bag of CB V2 is $5.99. For that difference I figured I might as well try it. I have been shocked that I have done all this messing around for the last few months, all of it using that CB, and have barely made a dent in the cotton in that bag.

    LV also has that same bundle deal on Native Wicks Platinum. The deals are on round wire, mostly; the only Clapton wire I see in a bundle is Kanthal, and I don't see any ribbon in a bundle.

    I have been through the most of the cotton that we have imported here in norway. I generally use Muji cotton for that reason it gives me the most flavour. Been through Cotton bacon, Koh Gen Do, Swag, Fiber Cotton, Dragon, and some other stuff i can't remember the name of. But anyhow, for some strange reason nothing comes close to Koh Gen Do and muji when it comes to taste. Could be the quantity of cellulose in the cotton, Idunno and i dont care :xD:

    I'm a big fan of cloud 9 cotton. It is organic, not chermically treated, has decent capillary action (rare to get a dry hit), it is long parallel strips (easy to tear of and easy to wick nano coils) and I find pretty heat resistant (although I rarely vape obver 20 watts so ... ).
    I've tried coton bacon prime (not bad at all), native wicks( not my jam) kerndo gold (Love it but hard to find here)

    got 80 pads of Koh gen Do from amazon for like $12 a while back, it was perfect. I religiously use cotton bacon or firebolt threads
