    So the real question is what kind of wick do you want?

    Many people are using things that are VERY cheap in bulk. If you want to use cotton, there has been a LOT of success with cotton balls, and pure cotton yarn. You can get both of these at WalMart or KMart for about $2. Otherwise, you can go to a craft store and find both items as well as candle wicking ... As for silica, I would try ebay or amazon to get it in bulk.

    If you want regular silica wick, I've had some good experiences with pbdragon.com
    You can buy it by the foot to any length, prices are good and the wick is a good quality with no residue or weird flavors.

    Check out Videinfra on Calivapers.com. He has cotton silica and lots of other accessories to offer. I have purchased from him and find his products and service to be excellent. See attachment:

    Walgreens/CVS 100% pure organic cotton big bag for $4. Will last over a year. Don't buy cotton from Walmart because it is the bleached kind and won't get and good flavor from it.

    i tried silica and hated working with it, it shreds easily.

    sterile cotton balls from CVS are 3 bucks for a massive amount of them, ONE ball will last me many weeks...

    Don't forget about stainless mesh, stainless rope, stainless ribbon, and ceramic.

    Ceramic is yummy!

    What kind of mod are you gonna put your coil on? 28 is good for lower resistance coils, but you may not get resistance high enough for a regulated mod, like a vamp or MVP.

    For silica, I use lightning vapes on eBay or Amazon. For cotton, you should get CVS sterile cotton.
