LOTS of cotton no break-in taste
CONS
arrived really compressed Pain in the heehaw to use strongly doubting the "no chemicals or bleach" claim, considering it is pure white
As others have said, this arrived packed tightly into the pouch. I had to put it into another bag for it to seal properly after using it. My bag doesn't look like the photo, how theirs has a clean, definable starting edge for you to unroll. Mine came very compressed, with a super thin end that I had to work loose, similar to when you "lose the edge" on cling film or transparent tape. It took me about 10 minutes to find the actual start of the roll, lol. After finally getting it unpeeled, I was able to tear off a rough strip and use it. The actual wicking material is good, it's just got a very inconsistent thickness across the strips. There is very little to zero break-in taste. The cotton also wicks very quickly. I cannot possibly imagine how this cotton is pure white, but has had zero chemicals or bleach used in processing it. There's also zero black flecks like you see in other organic cotton. The product seems good, but the format is just terrible for ease-of-use. If they could make the thickness of the sheet more consistent & insert a paper before rolling it, I would buy this cotton over any other. Until then, I'm going to skip this SKU in the future.

Cheap
CONS
Definitely not 1:1
There are many excellent 1:1 clones on FastTech that are worth purchasing. This is not one of them. Definitely not 1:1. Parts feel bigger, heavier, and vastly less well-machined than the authentic. Vaped OK but I pretty much shelved it once I got an authentic. The drip tip wasn't terrible, but was definitely not the quality from buying authentic, or even a ~$2 tip here on FT.

Fits Hotcig Centaur RTA (original, not mini)
CONS
Really tough to see through
Okay, so I bought these on a whim. In the photo, the left glass looks more transparent than the right glass. I was expecting to get one of each, but both of them were the more opaque version on the right. These are pretty tough to see through for juice level unless you hold a bright light behind it. These fit my Hotcig Centaur RTA perfectly, increasing the capacity to 4ml. Also made it look like a freakin' rocketship from 50's Sci-fi. Perfect, if you're into those aesthetics.

Really, really soft.
CONS
Really, really soft. Crunchy threads Cap is a bit short for my stubby fingers
These bottles work in the Desire Cut Squonk mod (so far). The squonk tube nipple on the Cut is pretty thin, and this bottle seems to fit it relatively well. (This means, of course, that the supplied tube may not fit other squonkers as well.) I would preferred a slightly tighter fit, but will keep an eye on it for leaking, but so far, so good. You will have to trim the length of the tubing, and push the bottle towards the battery a bit, so don't fill it up all the way. These bottles are incredibly soft. Easily the softest bottles I've purchased. Not sure if the silicone is just thin, or if it's really soft, but filling the bottle to 100% pretty much guarantees that you'll squeeze some out while replacing the cap. Speaking of the cap, two cons: A) The threading is really crunchy. I didn't notice any metal particles in mine, but I was pretty disappointed in the quality of the threads nonetheless. B) This one is subjective, but if you have big fingers, the metal bottle neck is too short to grasp without squeezing/spilling the contents. Again, another case for not filling to max. Bottles arrived with no smell. Don't know what the other reviewers were complaining about. Will purchase again, would recommend.

Doesn't fit the Centaur RTA
This glass is listed as having the same dimensions as "tall mode" (eg using the chimney extender) for the Hotcig Centaur RTA (not the Mini, the regular). Does not fit that application, so don't order this in hopes of using it there. Did not test on a Manta RTA, as I don't own one of those.
