I've wicked it exactly like I wicked all my other supremes that I've used over years, there is no issue with the wicking. Rather I just found the airflow and flavor from the single deck to be different and more enjoyable for me. The mesh deck is just crap and I'd recommend another one like kylin M if you want to do mesh. But the single deck on this one is great and obviously requires 50% of the effort needed to wick the dual deck :P
