    After reading this thread in full and watching Speedy's videos, I don't understand why people think silica wick better than ss rope, ss rope is the fastest wicking of anything I've used (thread title is about wicking). Totally agree with speedy that ekowool over ss rope is not good, gunks up too easily also I think he has done a great job on the videos and the build. Turning your genesis into an auto-dripper you just swap the tilt for a complete inversion, don't see the benefit. Maybe it's that I vape a tobacco flavour and that cotton and more so silica don't taste nearly as nice.

    I am not trying to force my views or be argumentative, I genuinely don't get it. Genesises are not that hard to get right and once setup they last for ages, I have never had a problem with dry-hits, I have had the odd dry-hit, but it is so easy to avoid.

    The most important thing is what ever works for the individual is the right solution.

    Update
    got my new tank and mesh build is good

    bought another kraken and this build...
    2.5 mm 7/7 316 ss rope topped with wrap of 400 ss mesh from hole to top of post
    soaked ss rope in isopropyl alcohol then flamed to remove all oil
    flamed mesh and wrapped
    flamed 1mm x 0.1mm kanthal ribbon and removed wick to wrap coil around mesh top
    pulsed out hotspots (coil was 5/4 wrap worked out about 1.1 ohm)
    Flavour is really great on this build and wicking is no issue anymore
    HOL liquid gunk burned off no worries back to shiny coil....
    Heats up fast too
    excellent vape and this build should last a long time too.....

    Think this is the build for my mate as well.

    Thanks for the advice all.
