    RSST and silica wick

    Hey guys

    Wondering if anyone has tried silica wick in the RSST and how it has worked out.

    Cheers

    On my RSST first used SS mesh, hated my juice turning black and there was a funny taste. Went to SS rope, cured the juice turning black but still a funny taste. Eco-wool over SS rope, good taste, no black juice, excellent wicking but looked ugly. In my AGA T have been using Eco-wool doubled over, wicks well till I get to a third of a tank left, tastes good, juice stays clean.

    1.2 to 1.3 ohm on all the wicks I set up. Vapor production on all was excellent. Think the wick in the AGA is to thick and was going to set up the RSST last night with a thinner one but my damn cat wouldn't stay off the table

    Edit; have tried ceramic as well. was good while it lasted. Bumped the AGA T on a glass door and it shattered the wick. So will stick with stuff not so fragile

    If you just oxidise the section of SS mesh that your coil will sit on, the darkening of the juice is greatly reduced. Also as you wick becomes more seasoned(old), the amount it darkens juice decreases.

    yup, did the top only thing as well. instead of a full clean out everyday was every 2 days but after 10 days still couldn't get past a funny taste. did the ekowool over the cable which worked really well (best set up out of them all) and might go back to it. was a bit of a pain getting such a short length of ekowool to cover and stay woven.

    was in a rush and just thought bugger it and put straight ekowool in. seems to work well but a bit touchy as to how tight the coil is wound on.

    all fun experimenting . this is my results and others may get different results. only been at the rba's for a bit over a month. i do like to fiddle though

    I've been doing this with my RSST for the last few days, and finding it's working a treat. Never a dry hit. Loads of vapour, and flavour. Found I needed about a 1.0 ohm coil to get it working well as it keeps the coil so wet.

    Agree with Davee, cotton in the RSST is such a clean taste in some juices it's like a new juice completely.

    Yes. Just the cotton, and as MrGruffy says. It changes the way things taste in a good way

    Looks pretty cool with no wick in the tank too, and no juice discolouration either.

    Yeah, I got it running in my DID (when I want a tank, normally dripping ). Just wondered if it was cotton only, or a combination including hemp or bamboo.

    Thanks
