    I started DIY with Clyrolinx. Their concentrates are terrible. No amount of aging seems to get rid of that perfume smell and cheap taste.

    Maybe I'm blinded by n00bness but the ones I've put together so far have been OK.. not great but certainly not as bad as I thought they'd be. Guess I'll know once I've messed around with TFA, CAP, FA etc.

    A wealth of information on that site.
    Yeah I see that... looks awesome. Also managed to find a nice RTA

    Agree with you 100%. Was recommended Clyrolinx by a mate of mine in JHB.

    Forked out R1000 on the premix VG/PG/3.34mg Nic and about 25 concentrates... STILL have 23 concentrates (of which most are 3/4 or full'ish). I thought it was the base that was too strong, but realised it was the concentrates after I bought from BLCKVapour.

    Don't EVER buy from Clyrolinx. Horrible, HORRIBLE concentrates. Might as well be vaping chloroform, no jokes. They all taste too potent and incredibly artificial. Whether it be fruity flavours or dessert flavours.

    BLCKVapour is legit.

    As well as these guys: http://e-liquid-concentrates.co.za/ (only place I could order from when everyone else closed for Christmas).

    They both stock the general international concentrates (which is what you want).

    Check out Valley Vapour as well, but I think their concentrates are 50% more expensive than the other 2: https://valleyvapour.co.za/

    Lately I've been getting all my DIY concentrates from E Liquid Concentrates.
    They stock a decent range and their prices are fairly competitive.

    I'm only using Clyrolinx at the moment and have no issues, you must realise their concentrates are super concentrated, dont use more than 3% flavour on a juice where as all other concentrates use 10 -20% per juice.
    Also , you need to use a "streathing" process to age the juice (shake & leave cap off for a few hours)

    Ye, I did that Richard. No matter what - I could not get rid of the perfumy thing. Taste is subjective though, so could just be me - but still. Didn't like it.

    Just a quick note to anyone reading this who may not know this.

    VG is available from just about any pharmacy. Just look for glycerin on the shelf. No need to order from a vape shop or online. Averge price is about R25/200ML.

    Just make sure it is either BP or USP rated. (British Pharmaceutical or United States Pharmaceutical)

    Will be cheaper than any vape shop. Only time it may be cheaper to buy online is if you order more than 2L or so.

    Yeeeaaahhh, you're right it is readily available, but it's actually cheaper buying from the vape stores, usually around R50 for 500ml, and it's more convenient because you just buy it along with the rest of your ingredients.
