I totally agree with this.
I don’t get the part about moving away from RF, though. In the recipes I have that use them, the ones that have gone past 1 month steeping have been great! But, i don’t mix with Just RF, and not many people do. Like most mixers, I mix and match brands for different aspects particular flavors impart. RF, MF, NF and a few other random PG-free flavors from different brands can combine very nicely and overcome any one brand’s deficiencies. I do add 15% PG to mine, but have made tests of many of them without it and they are great with just a little extra steeping.
Here is an example of a brand combination that is rich and full of flavor. I’m vaping it right now on only day 2 of steeping and it is fantastic. It is also one that holds nicely after a month of steeping:
Here’s another example of combining brands:
These both translate well to PG-free by omitting the PG from the recipes.
You will find lots of opposing opinions on RFSC. Some love, some hate, some meh. I’m sure it’s the same with other brands and certain flavors from particular brands. It’s something you have to find out for yourself. If you find some you hate, there are probably others who would trade flavors or mixes for them.
