    I am waiting for my Aga-T2+ to arrive and also for the Ekowool.

    Did anybody tried the sheath method ?

    How about the SS Rope/Cable? Better than mesh ?



    All feedback very appreciated

    ive used rope ,. i love it , wicks beautifully and easy as hell to coil. it does have one huge drawback though , it retains heat like nobodies business. so cut down on chain vaping as it will cremate the juice in your tank.

    I use Ekowool sleeved over a 300 mesh wick in my RSST. I like it better than any full SS mesh wick I have tried so far. Wicks better & no heatsinking which I hate.

    I just got some 500 mesh, will it work with the Ekowool? Does the Ekowool have an elastic quality? I'd like to try it out.

    The Ekowool will expand a bit. I just twist/roll the SS wick in the Ekowool. Once you try, you'll see how it works.

    Ekowool is a type of silica. Nextel is a ceramic material.

    Do you sleeve it all the way or just in the coil region ?

    I use ekowool on my SS rope wicks as a sleeve. Just makes it very easy to hand wrap my coil. I only use the ekowool sleeve to cover the coil (less than a half inch usually). Also - I have found that performance (TH,V & F) of the ekowool is surprisingly very good.

    I've done both. First was just from the wick hole to the the top for the coil. Then I sleeved the whole thing as experiement to see if less cooked juice would mix back into the tank. It seems like my juice is not changing color nearly as quick or bad as with a full mesh wick but I think that may just be because of the Ekowool helping with that. I've been meaning to try another idea I had but it's had a full sleeve for a while now & working great. Couldn't really tell a difference in vapor production so I think I will just continue to sleeve the whole thing.

    How big is the SS mesh square you use vs no Ekowool . I am asking this because after I roll my SS mesh there is barely any space left in the hole.
    Another question is are you oxidizing the mesh when using Ekowool ?

    I forget exactly but it is short. I want to say when I was doing a full mesh it was like 2.5" long or so. For the sleeved wick I started out with 1" & ended up cutting it a bit shorter as after I rolled it. I pre cut the height of the wick to 1.25" for the RSST. I rolled it tight & made it just a bit under 2mm dia so it's a really thin wick, then sleeved it with 2mm Ekowool. I don't oxize the mesh when using Ekowool. I just blast it with a propane torch real quick to burn off anything that might be on it. I used 300 mesh with all VG. When I was using a full Ekowool wick I was using 3mm Ekowool.

    I tried to do a Ekowool only, used the 2mm and folded in two when pulled trough the hole but it doesn't wick right.
    how big should the wick hole in a AGA-T2?.
    now is roughly 3mm so I think is choking the wick.
