XDM45ACP, Do you think the metal rods will need replacing at some point, and how easy is it to get hold of them? Thanks for the review.



I'm quite sure they will at some point, they sell them here I think. You are welcome

If you already are getting the Matto RDTA it's a good idea to get some spare parts while they are available, IMHO.

The stainless steel braided wicking wires probably won't need replacing for some time but when the time comes they might not be available here anymore.

The same goes for other replacement parts like plastic tanks and drip tips.

Spare parts for the Matto RDTA available at the moment:

SS rods/wire: SKU 9723255 (4 pcs), SKU 9723256 (20 pcs)

Tanks (PSU): SKU 9723253 (1 pcs), SKU 9723254 (5 pcs)

Drip tips: FT - Original Mato RDTA resin drip tips

That said, the wire ropes are off-the-shelf stuff widely used in boating/sailing applications (3mm or nominal 1/8" 7x19 316L). As for the earlier talk about tilting and swirling: there's no need for any of that nonsense. Once the cables are wet, they'll feed the cotton as fast as the cotton can drink the juice, right down to the bottom of the tank.

I am having real trouble with the 3mm steel wires, however i wick it, it doesn't feed it enough, its like the wires are not allowing the juice to flow up properly, strangling it at the top.
The ones that do work are the 2.5mm steel wires that some came with it too, maybe because it's letting the juice flow more freely onto the deck. I can't find these on ft. Seen this elsewhere, would it work the same if cut to size? WIRE ROPE CABLE 1mm 1.5mm 2mm 2.5mm 3mm 4mm GALVANISED STEEL DIN 3053 DIN 3055 on EB

Any advice on using the 3mm would be appreciated, I've tried muji, kendo gold, fluffed, smaller amounts of cotton, more, but it doesn't feed it properly and yes I'm letting the end of the fluffed cotton sit on the ends of the steel wires.

Feeling frustrated.

I sorted it, the SS rods they give you, for me are rubbish. I used SS mesh, cut to size, rolled it up slightly longer than the rod, just a bit, now it feeds the cotton really good. Just a tip if anyone is getting stuck.

I had issues with the 3mm wires as well. I just had to let it sit for a few hours and let the wires soak up juice, now it works and wicks as it should. From reviews I saw this wasn’t the case, they just threw the wires in and had no issues. I was not so lucky and had the same issues you did also thinking the wires were clogging up the holes. Give it another shot.
