    i bought me a wotofo bravo because of all the great reviews about amazing flavour.
    I was vaping on a kylin and I was very satisfied with that.. good flavour and good vape, but the tank leaked alot.
    I wicked the bravo first with the coils that came with the tank.
    Wicked it a couple of times, but never got good taste of it. Tought it where the coils, so I tried other coils.. aliens, claptons,.. different ohms, from 0.3 until 0.8 ohms. I think I wicked the tank like 20 times in de past 2 days. Less cotton, more cotton.. everything. Now I put the coils that came with the tank back in.. but nothing. I’m not getting a great flavour.. I’m getting flavour ! But my kylin gave me much more ! I’m lost.. if I can’t fix this I’m gonne trow this tank in the garbage.
    Anyone some tips ?
    (Sorry for my english)

    I'm getting good flavour out of mine, have you been trying the coils at different hights from the air holes.

    What about coils, what have you all tried?

    I'm using plan micro coils, comes out at 0.36ohms at 34w.

    I’ve seen alot of YouTube video’s, they all used the coils that came with the tank.. and they said outstanding flavour. Maybe it’s just me.

    It could be the juice as well as you(your taste buds).
    I never use the coils that come with any atty execpt clearamisers as they never inform you what ohms or material they are using for them.
    You do have to mind that even if something is good for a reviewer it may be no good for you as we are all different.
    There will be a reviewer somewhere that doesn't like the tank, it's just trying to find them.

    Tried different juices. Yeah maybe it’s just not the right tank for me.. everything about it is great ! Except the flavour for me. And That’s why I bought the tank.
    Maybe I’ll try the blitzen..

    Try the Kylin Mini or the Pharaoh Mini. The Kylin Mini is probably the best single coil RTA I've tried.

    Just out of curiosity, open the refill cap and see if bubbles start to form, then close the refill cap and vape and see if the flavor is better. Test this out and let me know how it goes. Really interested in hearing back.

    I put some new clapton coils in the tank, reads 0.34 ohms.
    Wicked it, vaped it.. still low on flavour.
    Opend the cap, and I saw a bubble, closed it.. and the flavour was a little stronger indeed. But still not as much as my kylin.
    The flavour also taste funny, my girlfriend said it smelled different to.

    And after about 10ml, the wicks turned black at some places.

    Wick turning black in some places are a result of hot spots?

    I wanted to love this RTA, but have exactly the same problem with the flavour. I get tons more and better flavour from a simple TFV8 tank with standard heads :(((

    I’ve quite enjoyed it ...had no issues with rubbish flavour but then I prefer to use a 510 drip tip on it with AFC about half closed.... don’t know if that makes a difference

    Closing the air flow can help with flavour as your not letting to much air in to mix with the vapour, if you have more air than vapour you can get a weak flavour from it. That's why you adjust your watts to get best flavour, as you go higher in watts you have more vapour to mix with the air your taking in.

    I always set my AFC to a restricted lung hit and then set my watts until I get good flavour, usually between 30W and 40W on a 0.4 +-0.1, if I get to about 55W/60W then it must have crap flavour to start with and no matter what I do it will still be crap, so I stop adjusting the watts any higher and set it for the temp of the vapour.

    Could just be that the Kylin is better for flavor and when compared to your new tank it makes it seem inferior. I love my Kylin, no leaks, good flavor, and it holds a lot of juice.

    If you wick it right it mini won't leak but its a fine line between being too much and too little. When the wick covers half of the screw heads that is about the least but you don't want it to cover all the screw head or it won't wick enough.

    You meant this for the OP rather than me I take it :D

    I should have left out the “I don’t know part” shouldn’t I .... was trying not to be presumptuous into how the OP vapes
