This is an experiment. So far so good. I've vaped a 1/2 tank of a DIY juice that's very prone to burning, and I'm happy with the way it works. No burnt taste or gurgling yet. The idea here was to use cotton for the main wick, yet use a piece of silica as a flavor wick (and to feed the cotton in the main wick). Here's a used Triton coil disassembled, after a dry burn. I pulled a wisp of cotton off of an organic cotton ball, purchased from CVS. It was not boiled. The cotton was formed into a point and passed through the coil. A little resistance was felt while pulling, but it wasn't very much. The amount of cotton is critical! Too much and not enough liquid will be drawn in. Too little, and you'll get juice leaking into the coil, resulting in gurgling. Trimmed and fluffed. Looking down the coil. Looks pretty to me. Let's put it back together. Coil reassembled. Threading silica through the coil can be difficult, even using the teflon tape trick. This avoids it. The coil was very easy to load into the tank - the silica feeder strands are nice and stiff. Pure flavor from using cotton in the main wick. Not as much vapor as my Provari/AeroTank with rebuilt micro-coil, but every bit as good as a new Triton coil should be.
