I would like to share with you today, MY first thoughts on the new Cotton Bacon Prime.
I have used Cotton Bacon (CB) since the version 1 first came out. I moved on to CB version 2 when it first came out and have used it ever since.
Many folks on ELR know that I vape juice (cinnamons and NET’s) that gunk coils bad, so I re-wick a lot more than most of you do. I do all of my set ups at least once daily and my 2 main setups that I carry with me 2 and sometimes 3 times a day depending on how much I vape.
Only time will tell if I make the switch to CB PRIME but this is my first impression.
The 2 setups I carry with me every day. The left one will get CB V2 and the right one will get CB P.
The only difference I can see in the strips as they come out of the package is the new Prime does appear smoother, straighter maybe fluffier. Kind of hard to see what I am trying to describe in the pics.
Pulling them apart seems very similar
Now we begin to see a very different texture. CB V2 on the left and CB P on the right. What I am seeing is the CB P is a much smoother, cleaner cotton. When you pull it from the new strip there is less fine cotton particles released in the air. The cotton fibers are straighter, finer and more uniform.
Close ups so you can see the difference for yourself.

Notice what looks like tiny little chunks in the fibers
Cotton Bacon Prime
You can see the fibers are much straighter and no little tiny chunky looking stuff.
Wicking with it is identical, I see no difference at all.
I can tell you there is no bad taste at all and it seems to wick about the same. I will update this if I see any difference as the day goes on.
