    Ceramic Fiber Rope

    Hi Peeps just surfing the net and stumbled across this stuff Ceramic Fiber Rope, Twisted, Round and Squre Braid. What are peoples thoughts on using it in our mods as wick? I think FM tried the nextel stuff hopefully you may have some input. BTW Don't rush out and buy it until we can work out if it would be good or not cheers.
    Move along!!! Nothing to see here.

    I use this one and LOVE LOVE LOVE it! XC-132 Ceramic Wick - 12" Heat Cleaned

    You will have to find an overseas mule to get your hands on some though...

    Its very similar to the silica wick in that respect. But it tastes cleaner than mesh to me. Best thing is - just torch it and off you go again. One foot would last you a year or more for that reason.

    Be sure if you do buy it it is pre-heat cleaned in a kiln. VERY important!

    Can you make 6mm work though?

    Might be worth looking at the paper? Could it be rolled? Or cut the tape up.


    I now have pretty much everything I could want, next step is making my own mods and juices, watch this space er cadet....
