    Not sure.
    I bought a Genny just to try out a mesh wick.
    Oxidised it then wrapped around 3mm silica.
    Used only for a tank full or two, like I said, was just a tryout.

    Don't tell 5miley but one of these days I am going to stick a silica wick in a kraken.
    It may not be the best use of a genesis but my thinking is it will be like a dripper without the dripping.

    Heathen.....

    I know what you mean about the life of a mesh wick, I've had the same wick in the pulse for months and its on its second or third coil I think purely down to deep cleaning purposes.

    I've seen cotton in a Kraken, the guy was getting some quite good clouds out of it.

    On a separate but not unrelated note, I've been thinking about getting another genny, dual coil. Does anyone have experience of the Aga TD? I used to love my Aga T and T2 until I killed them and don't want to spend a fortune on something that will most likely only get used when I fancy a change.

    Couple of places on ebay will sell you a foot of SS rope at reasonable cost.
    Subtanks are ok as far as they go but I'm getting far better flavour from the Lemo and Goblin.

    Mephisto is the Land Rover of drippers - again my opinion - for a starter you get big post holes for thicker wire, flavour and clouding and either single or dual coil option. Solid, reliable, forgiving and unlike my last Landie it won't smell of wet dog and deid sheep. Unless you have the wrong juice.

    How do you build with mesh slug? I have a Luxe that I wanted to try something different in. :)

    Well thanks all..

    As I said, not really sold on the subtank. I have the NextGen which vapes great and am used to building on it.. Subtank would feel more like a replacement.. EmbraSewerRat going back to your point about only having one tank on the go.. Yeah, probably does seem a bit strange to some but I find what I like and tend to get comfortable, trying my best not to get caught up in the 'buy everything' mentality although it's hard to resist sometimes lol.

    Silica wick in a genesis isn't a bad idea, seems like a bunch of people have already done it with the RSST.. Added to the build list!

    Plenty of people have done it on the kraken too.
    They call it auto dripper mode on youtube.
    I think it is probably too easy to be considered a proper genesis build for some people.

    edit- you know who you are.
