After a lot of messing about with my GS, The best results I got were by leaving out that bit with the 2 wick holes and building it like a GP spheroid or Heron. I loosely wrapped a length of "Juwel pad" around the chimney and put it all together with BioWick "Bunny ears" to get the juice down to the coil.

It's the easiest way I've found to build the GS and it works (For what it is) impressively well like this. It's still no Taifun/Kayfun killer, But it's a hell of a lot more user friendly than trying to get it set up with that tank base bit in there (And the constant dry hit's or flooding I was getting while building it as it was originally intended).

That is a manufacturer documented build method. That's one of two ways it was originally intended to be built.

Liked mine a lot when i was using them. Wanted stuff with bigger decks tho and more accessible, so i can mess with builds easier. Went to drippers.

So for me these small tanks were the stepping stone to mech mods and 22mm stuff, and for that reason i retain a fondness for them.

Should go back and build them with the knowledge i have now, see how they hold up.

i made both braided silica U-wicks and and mesh feeder tubes for them, both worked well. Liked the U-wicks better because they were more consistent in feeding the coil, but they didn't permit disassembly of the deck; when you took the deck apart the wicks pulled out of the holes and then you'd have to rebuild (and perhaps recoil) from scratch.

Both of mine have mesh feeder tubes in them now; what i remember is, one wicks fine and the other is dicky in some fashion, both flooding and dry hits.

Time to dump out that ancient juice in them and have a go. Ancient juice, yuck!

IDK what they were thinking about the original design, but that little chamber produces a pretty nice vape. Compared to the Kayfun mini, or a clearo, I guess it's a medium sized chamber. Only Spheroid principle one that I use is a Prometey.
KF4 Leaking? For a more secure seal, replace the o-ring #16 with one that is 1.5mm cross section. SKU 1536606 or SKU 1536607

These vape, very good is you have the patience to get wicked and built properly. Received GS as a 'gift' from very good friend with clear and coveted full SS sleeve about 6 months ago after he was through DONE screwing with it. I gladly accepted the challenge.

I have patience and like to get things to work and generally do not quit especially on vape gear for some reason. Pretty fiddly first try. Use cotton on mine not mesh. Very fine 'rabbit ears' just barely poking thru cap holes cut almost flush like cotton build on big brother GT.

1.2 ohm, 28g, 1.8mm driver. Nice vapor production and very, very good flavor much like GT. I personally like the set up on a 'Sticker'. Looks much better than the KF mini to me.

Happy Holidays

Good question @R4DLY > Just took a few pulls on both and both are stock set up. Now the big question is which ones do I have ? I know the GS is a Vape 101 special edition they had made up a year or so ago. My GT was an alleged hCigar but looked dead on the more expensive $22 model here @FT when there were only A and B OG models.

Draw is nice mouth to lung on both however testing just now GS is a tad looser. Again, who were the actual manufacturers as always in this world. To me, Both similar to stock 'un modified' KF's.

Very nice vape on both.
