    @Silver Royal Wick is now being stocked locally again. The Vape Den and Capital Vapes appear to be the first two retailers to be selling it now

    Hi tried to do a little of my own research on rayon wicking material. And found this post on another forum. Could the rash that the guy was experiencing be him having an allergic reaction or is this a common thing.

    Not saying anything bad about this subject as I am yet to use it myself, I'm just curious and looking for input from more experienced people.

    There's a massive difference in flavour.
    It's unlike cotton , SS mesh and It's unlike the silica.
    Seems to have a more natural taste ,somewhat woody and somewhat muted.
    Juice is a DIY tobacco and I only get the tobacco after exhale,but will use it today to see if it changes.

    2minutes into vaping the flavour changed. I now get the menthol and tobacco on both the inhale and exhale. Maybe the flavour was muted initially because of the boiling. I'll rewick the zues next and see if I'm right.

    What did you use for boiling? Try to avoid tap water.

    I boiled it in distilled water.
    But I think I might chemically strip it and then boil it afterwords.
    Flavour is quite good.

    Butane seems the safest option. But if you have something else to suggest I'm all ears.

    This wick is still going strong. No funny tastes,amazing flavour and no dry hits this far.
    This experiment looks promising.

    Testing with little juice to see how the zues handle wicking with the fibres.
    I have the same woody taste most probably due to the wick still being wet from the boil but no dry hits yet. Some muted flavour but it didn't last long on the RDA the flavour came through fast enough.

    This stuff works lekka in the RDA.
    In the zues single its not bad,but not too good either. It's still in there.
    In the zues dual it's a definite no. Had it in for a tank and a half and couldn't anymore. Not that it wicked slow, I think the wattage was to high. Didn't get dry hits the vape just wasn't nice.
