    I'm curious about trying mesh wicking for the first time after finding some mesh in the back room of my shop. I figured it would be a great way to make a build for juice sampling, but I don't know what wire would work best with 400hpi SS Mesh.

    Is there a wire material that works best? Share with me your tips n tricks.

    What kind of atomizer?
    Generally mesh wicking only works well at higher ohms and lower wattages...in a Genesis type atty.. MTL type vaping... I don't think It will keep up with a modern subohm RDTA or RTA.. dripper would work but be leaky. As will the tanks.

    In a dripper for 1 or 2 puffs of tasting... mesh might work.. silica would be better.. holds more juice and can supply the coil a little better. SS just don't HOLD much juice or wick fast.....

    Personally I would just use plain cotton and rewick as needed..... I prefer to do tasting with the same build I plan to vaoe with.... SS is easy to change flavors with but it doesn't vape anything like a natural fiber wick.

    I used kanthal ribbon with my old gennies. I even have one rebuilt for tasting. But it's a pain because the cap has to come off to reload the wick.
