Which cotton is best for MTL in 2.0 and 2.5 mm?
I use only MTL and seems to be lost in those cotton fields.

I am using the Doggystyle and The Dvarw

Thanks in advance for your help

Just use Muji or Puffs. They're cheap and they're as good as anything else. Or get a HUGE box of Graham Cellucotton if you're in the "rayon is better" camp (it will last you and your great-great grandchildren for life).

So there's no really any difference what so ever between all the brands here? not even one that is much better than the others?

MUJI cotton is just perfect for both DL and mtl.

Well, some of it is much more expensive and has vape branding. And there are people who swear that one brand of repackaged cotton untwisted cord is much better than another brand of exactly the same repackaged untwisted cotton cord because it says "pro" or something in the name. Clean, unbleached cotton with the fibres lined up is clean, unbleached cotton with the fibres lined up - it's not like anybody's got their own special breed of cotton plant or a revolutionary new fibre-lining-up process or anything, they just wash it, comb it and card it like everybody else. Some of it gets made into pads, some of it gets made into cord. Some of it gets packaged for vaping and costs twenty times as much because "vape".
