RE: Japanese cotton pads?
So it turns out I really suck at rewicking. Yesterday was my first attempt at an rba, very funny looking back. I didn't push the cotton down into the wick holes. I was running fast to find a bowl to catch all the juice that was pouring out. That said I'm using the big baby beast rba with the factory Clapton's in it with rawwkuza cotton. I have redone the wicking 3 times and each time it's better. My problem is I think I'm using too much cotton and choking it out. Thanks to Bob I now know I need to use 1/2 as much as I am at the moment. Thankyou Bob. Now I just need some wire to make my own fused Clapton's to get lower ohms.

You'll get the hang of it. It just takes some practice Smile Lots of great wicking videos on YouTube full of tips and tricks.

I have been using rayon and fiber freaks lately. I find oth much better than cotton. I have to rewick much less often. Also I'm vaping at lower watts lately so these work extremely well.

I bet you can find the stuff they use BFE beauty shops. If I remember correctly it's rayon cellulose. It's like a rope coil, but cotton. Please correct me guys if I've gotten the name wrong.
