    Thanks for the help. Ive got 400 mesh. Do you think 200 or 300 would wick better? I'm thinking of making a tube with a tiny bit of silica to stop it pouring out. Any thoughts?

    Yep, sounds like it, i'd say try the rope, should keep the coil juiced

    300 is better for thicker e-liquids 500 mesh is better than 400 mesh for wicking normal liquids.

    A double wick (as in one of the vids above) or putting silica inside it will both help wicking.

    Getting the wick right on a Genesis build is at least as tricky as getting the coiling right imo.

    personally I found ss rope wicks better. Try the ss mesh, don't wrap the coils to tight tho. Could try a microcoil using the drill bit method?

    Would increasing the air not help? I ask as my little 17 mm aga-s is using a 2 ml tank in under 2 hours since I added a 2 nd airhole. The flavour is awesome,really strong warm and wet. Way better than adding a second wick/coil.

    I've been thinking that might help. I might try drilling the hole a bit bigger. I've currenty got it at 1.5mm but I like the draw of my Igo-L at 2mm.
    Anyone think this will help?
    Surely it won't help the wick get juiced more.
    Would it keep the coil cooler so no more burnt hits?
    Questions, questions, questions ;)
    I appreciate all the help.
