    I went ahead and ordered some ecowool yesterday from Cloud9 to try out. Kinda on the expensive side with shipping the US but I really wanted to get my hands on this asap. If I get the same results as others then I will be pleased. I plan on using it in my Terminator and Drunker to start with. If possible I would like to try to use it as a sleeve around a small mesh wick in my mini DID.

    Keep us updated. I blew my vape budget on something else.

    @Section1: Yes, please keep us posted. One way or another I want to get some of this stuff to compare with the industrial wicks I just got from McMaster Carr.

    Since it is hollow, I would think that maybe some cotton stuffed inside would be better than SS, since it inherently soaks up more fluid and the sleeve would insulate it from the heat from the coil. That would be the way I would try it.

    @section1, how much did it end up to get it shipped to you?

    My intent is try various "sleeve" type wicking (including Ekowool) around a piece of 3/32 7x7 SS wire rope in my AGA T2 as being explored in another thread. The SS rope supposedly wicks extremely well, rather than going through the whole oxidizing thing some are just slipping a small piece of silica or ceramic sleeve just over the portion of the rope that the Kanthal coil covers, ie just about a 1/2" to cover the cable extending above the top deck of the AGA. The beauty is ZERO shorting problems. The sleeve serves as an insulator while the wire rope handles the bulk of the wicking. The SS wire rope has outperformed mesh in its capillary ability by a long shot. Many types of rope were tried and its seems that "7x7" construction performed the best.

    Yes, it really caught my attention. Check out this thread on it. I got my rope here. I got some of all three sizes to play with various RBAs. I got it in yesterday, but I wont be able to play with it until Sunday, I am excited about it though. The whole "oxidation" thing is a royal PITA.......

    Total was 27.85 GBP which was 43.37 US for me to get the ekowool with shipping. I ordered 1 piece of 3mm and 2mm to try. Those were the only sizes in stock yesterday.
