    Hey guys/girls I have had my Ody for a few weeks now and love the vape it gives me on my SS GGTS with a Kick but have a problem.I use the stock wick from COV and double it when making my coils and it works great for a while.I'm not sure why but it seems like after my 3rd or 4th refill it will start leaking for no reason and everything looks the same.Have any of you had this happen and figured out what was causing it?I have yet to see how long a coil will last me because of this issue and have to make a new coil and start over every time to stop the leaking.Also I have bought 100ft. each of 32ga,34ga,and 36ga resistance wire but can't seem to find bulk no resistance wire anywhere but Ebay which I don't use.You guys know any place I can buy a 100ft or so?Thanks for any help.

    leakage is not coming from the wick jk. It comes from liquid that goes on the center pole. To avoid this please use my method on this video:

    As Imeo stated above, watch his "how to" video, it's great.
    Also read entire Odysseus leakage thread in the GG forum posts (search for thread) and the last 8 pages of Odysseus Official (sticky thread) in the GG forum.
    I am confident after completing all the above, all of your questions will be answered and all your Odysseus leaking issues will be on their way to being resolved.

    Peace-

    Thanks for the info,I connected the wire like shown in the video by Imeo so we'll see how it goes.I've only ever had flooding issues at refill occasionally so once this tank is gone I will know for sure.I love this thing more each day and have no regrets that I had to trade my UFSv2 for it.Thanks again.

    All of previous posts will help with leaking.

    I got my wire from here: (takes a little while to get to the states, but worth it)

    Resistance:
    wires.co.uk : Bare Nickel Chrome / Nichrome Section 50g 0.16mm Nickel Chrome Wire
    or if you want thinner wire you can buy 0,122mm ir 0,132mm

    Non Resistance:
    http://www.wires.co.uk/cgi-bin/sh00...6&PN=ni_bare.html#aNI0236_2d050#aNI0236_2d050 50g 0.236mm Nickel Wire

    (copied from iatty thread)
    I got mine last August and still have enough to last much longer.

    They are quoting the 50g of the .16mm res wire to be about 298m! That is a great deal. I am about to buy 50g of both

    The best wick I have found, is the one Bruce has at clouds of vapor.

    That's what I buy - need to get another order in. Just wishing that I could get a big spool of it where I have no worries about running short.

    Ditto. I've built up a decent stock to last me a little while just by ordering another meter with pretty much every CoV order I've made, but I'd also love to be able to just pick it up in larger quantities (maybe 10-25 meters, though that's probably overkill)

    Everytime I place an order. I put about 6 to 10 of those in my basket.
    I have tried other silica wicks in bulk quantities but there is something that's just not right about it. The ceramic doesn't sit well with me l. And fiberglass wick just plane sucks.

    Thanks, keighels. Saved me from the trial/error w/ buying wick in bulk.

    You guys follow the mod section thread about wick?

    There is a modder from russia that made some reasearch and --fast forward--seems like bamboo yarn would be way better for your health and wick better and dont burn if kept wet.
