    Red face Which material is the best for wick?

    Which material is the best for wick?
    I found that the cotton wick in most atomizers are very bad, after one draw u have to wait few mins for the wick to resoak.
    Does the SS mesh like the cotton wick from atomizer? I hate to put down my pv and wait.
    Thanks for sharing ideas!

    I use cotton yarn in my phoenix atty and 2 novas and it works amazing, no waiting, I chainvape like no other flavor outperforms silica 10 to 1. I went to walmart in knitting section. Found a big ball of peaches and cream brand white 100% cotton yarn, boiled in for 30 mins to remove anything extra and its awesome. Ss mesh is on my to do list just haven't got around to using it yet.

    Cotton yarn huh? I'm gonna have to try that. Have you experienced any burn marks on the yarn from the coil heating up like silica wicks do?

    I use cotton bamboo blend yarn and although it does get some black marks on it it wicks like a beast and the black stuff doesnt affect flavor much. Still way better than what i get with silica

    I work with leather and use linen thread, I also have some hemp thread. I need to test the absobancy quality for the hemp, but if it works, it's about the strongest natural fiber there is next to jute, and hemp is the only material that doesn't rot nor mildew. I personally would trust natural fibers over man made, for the most part.
