    Has anybody tested this? How does it compare to the good old trusted Cotton Bacon v2?

    I've used it for a couple weeks now. It's very absorbent, no break-in taste at all, lasts a good amount of time. Mine lasts for about a week, but I use no sweeteners in my juice. But when it's time to change it, you know it. Funky doesn't even begin to describe it, and it does it overnight.
    Personally, I think I'll stick with the v2, it's not worth the extra cost to me to switch to Prime. You may feel differently.

    Didn’t want to like it but I do. Definitely faster wicking, runs nice in rta’s. I would also agree, faster break in than CB2, 3-5 pulls vs 8-10.

    10 bags for less than $6 a bag from a US seller on eBay. When I extinguish the 25 or so bags of CB2 I have on hand I’ll make the switch.

    For me it's a straight upgrade from CBV2. I'm really enjoying it.

    Cheers guys. Sounds like it's definitely worth picking up a pack or two to check it out then :)

    I didn't have high expectations but I wicked today and I'm pleasantly surprised. I've got it in two RDA'S and an RTA. Lowest amount of of break in, wicks very well and I've been enjoying it so far.

    Only down side so far is they cut into strips, wish it would be just one coiled up strip. Only reason I see them cutting into strips is so you waste more.

    Yeah it's worth a try, only started Vaping on it today but so far I'm impressed. Will it replace my beloved Koh gen Do? Time will tell

    Been using it since the day before yesterday. Agreed that it has cleaner taste especially from the start, i.e. almost no break in period, and, yeah.. wicks faster, lasts longer. I made the switch from Cotton Bacon v2 to Native Wicks Platinum Blend some time ago, and now I'm definitely switching to this Cotton Bacon Prime stuff. The improvement is not subtle, and it's dirt cheap anyway.

    Mine lasted seven days fine, I wanted to keep it in longer, see if I could get 10 days but the coil was too gunked up

    I will say it did keep a fresh taste much longer than CB

    EDIT: longer than CB V2

    I haven't been in the game very long, so I only know Muji, Kendo and Cotton Bacon v2. The latter is my favourite to date.
    Native Wicks and CB Prime to arrive next week (ordered a moment ago). After all the feedback, I'm getting really curious and looking forward to that... :crazy:

    Bacon prime and Kendo Gold are my personal favorites. Native platinum in 3rd place there. I think you'll be happy with both of those you have coming in.

    update: Got Cotton Bacon Prime and Native Wicks Platinum in the post today. Not really impressed with NW, seems to have a taste to it, similar to Muji. But CBP left a quite good first impression. Need to compare a bit more to see if it's worth paying more for it than for CB v2.

    Bacon Prime is better than cotton bacon, excelllent wicking, excellent flavor, no break in time. worth the extra dollars.
