This thicker wick works really well outside with a light breeze (<7mph) where the thin stuff really didn't work at all outside for me (unless the air was very still).
I recommend the thick wick!
This stuff is great. clean and stays lit unless in a windy area(fans on). I got big roll for myself at least 2 years ago sadly I forget where I put it often but lucky for me it's stored in a ziplock bag to keep as fresh as I can. I have crohn's and Bud is the only meds that make any difference in my disease. Many think I'm crazy with my glass. I have at least 2 bongs in fridge at all times and a rocky mountain high chiller in freezer all the time(will not break in there like every other glass I've ever put in freezer) I have ash catchers and also organic cotton balls i take apart and put in 1 filter in the 2nd filter goes charcoal. You would be amazed at all the crap that this pulls out of the buds and it might slightly effect the buzz but next to not having crap in throat or lungs its little to nothing different. But does cost more as more glass to break and the cotton and charcoal not to $$ but cost more than no filters at all(glass is $37 each filter x2 and $10 to 15 x2 for the add ins). But when your using pot as medicine I want it a clean and fresh as I can get it. Hope this helps others like me
