    I will have a kraken turning up in a few days, and I would like to give SS wire rope a crack this time. I say this time, because I have tried using a genesis style atty before, let's just say I didn't get on with it.

    I only use cotton in my drippers but last time it just couldn't wick quick enough. I tried ss mesh and that just tasted like death no matter what I did to prepare/treat it. I also don't particularly like silica because I can taste that even after torching and what not. So apart from using Seedy's auto dripper set up, which I will most likely end up doing, there is only SS wire rope left to try, am I right?

    So what's your views on it? Any recommended videos to watch?

    Thanks.

    Another good video, I prefer ribbon to micro-coil, but the method is the same.

    Hmmm, so you gotta use mesh with rope? That really puts me off to be honest. I will see how I get on with cotton and the bit of silica I have left first I think. Thanks for the links though, they will come in handy if I decide to try it.

    I just use cotton in my Kraken. Wicks and works like a champ.

    some people just don't like ss builds...
    did you leave a hole thru centre of mesh wick ?
    a dry hit on a ss mesh is hellacious !

    Why not give voodoo wool from stealthvape a try, wicks fast and is tasteless?

    I think I did leave a hole, it was a few months ago now.

    Isn't voodoo wool hollow?

    I find out if I have lost my job or not today so depending on the outcome I will be treating myself to some supplies, suppose I will give the SS builds a go again.

    VoodooWool is amazing stuff. Bit thicker than your standard fare but well worth it IMO!
