RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Most likely - one of the favourite wicks for Genesis type atties is stainless steel rope.

This is supposed to give greater purity of flavour or something. Problem is, it's still a Genesis...

They can be I'm told, very rewarding.

They sure are a pain to build, and the only one I know of that isn't strictly mouth to lung is the Prometheus which is a genesis you can use like a dripper. In fact you need to as SS mesh/SS rope just doesn't wick that fast.

Yeah.. I dunno if you caught the little video I posted a few days back?? If you did, you can imagine how much juice supply my coils need, more cotton more juice

I didn't see it until you mentioned it, but did see it now. Man, that is just A+ stuff man. You seriously make me feel like I'm missing out on a huge part of vaping. Granted I am happy doing what I do, but seeing that is truly awe-inspiring from a vaper's perspective.
