    All this boiling and stuff is confusing. I just filled a brand-new PT3 with Hawk Sauce, screwed a fresh PT3 coil in and screwed the base down. I then inserted my brandnew fresh AW IMR 18650 into my brand new fresh Provari Zombie Edition. Turned it on and set voltage at 4.1. A few primer puffs and guess what?

    It will hold me until I get this Aqua Clone built.

    No flavor other than Hawk Sauce had been tasted during this procedure. This Aqua on the other hand..... Is fiddly.

    I braid my cotton before I boil it. Then, I soak it in PGA and weave it into a throw rug. I allow it to dry on a clothes line under a pine tree. After it's good and dry, I take it and put it in the trash and just grab some ekowool.

    Sorry about that Retired 1. I actually just wanted to share a coil build and got a bit side tracked. My bad.

    There is, it is not too bad, threading is decent. Did not come with the extra drip tip, did not come with the hybrid pin. It did come pre built but smelled really strong of machine oil. Took 2 days soaking and rinsing then about 30 minutes with vinegar/water in the waterpic squirting through the air paths to get rid of. No Swarf though.

    First build flooded, I over pressured it. Second attempt at refill did not flood, I used the upside down fill thing. But is not wicking right, need to fiddle some more. Not a bad deal for 28$ if you do not mind clones.

    The only clone I have is a Russian 91%. I got it because I saw it in stock and I like the finish. I don't really have an opinion on clones other than if you want one, get one... if you find them offensive, don't get one. I hate the ones with logo's and serial numbers, though. Sometimes the real deal is either too expensive or impossible to get. I don't think either scenario should prevent anyone from using whatever they want. Hell, for all I know, I'm typing on a fake Dell...but it works!

    I did see the twisting method on RIP's recent video, and I was interested in trying it out, and then he said "drill", and I said "nope."

    One oddity I came across too is that with a Protank head, I tried exchanging the flavor wicks for silica that I cut off a CE4 head, and while it really wasn't wicking any less or better, surprisingly enough, the flavor suddenly changed from very socky to only slightly socky, more like the results I get from the CE4's (the general result has been that CE4's and CE5's vape a little cleaner for me than Protank heads... not completely, but the difference is noticeable and a little more tolerable.) I was actually vaping on it a little bit after that.

    Kinda makes me think it's just different grades of silica or something. The flavor wick can really have an effect on taste, once I put just a tad of unboiled cotton on top of a flavor wick that sat atop the Kanger coil, and the vape suddenly tasted as though I was using full on cotton for the entire set up. Entirely different taste. And not in a good way, the unboiled was extremely dusty and cotton flavored - yet the cotton wasn't really even touching the coil, I checked it multiple times before, during, and after. Had a ton of silica beneath it!

    So really, at this point, meh, I just think I can taste wicking materials out the wazoo. Trust me ya'll, I know how crazy it sounds, but hey, I really did get that clean, awesome vape from my Cisco, until it gunked, then it was just naturally a bit ashy tasting. The experience I got out my Cisco was like something from any RDA'ers book, it was really heavenly! Just pure vapor, it was as though there was no wick at all! I certainly couldn't taste it, and that's just what I love, it's what really allows me to vape and, hey, it really is the truth that with the wicky tasting devices, that wicky taste funks up juice flavors into weird things like salt and medicine and everything else, and that whole wicky texture seems to make me cough something unreal.

    But I'm super excited about my RDA's coming in. They're either going to prove I'm an idiot or that something is wrong with my battery. Ain't too many other directions it could go in. If I build a bad coil, I can't blame it on anyone else. But I'm hoping it'll be easier than that, I really want to vape Velvet Cloud Vapor's Candy Bar again, that juice is pretty darn good, it was the only one that even was strong enough to somewhat hold up it's original flavor on the Aspire. I've even had that juice splatter up in my mouth, and the juice itself actually tastes just like it vapes. Strangest thing.

    Anyway, back to Twisted coils, they really are beautiful looking little things, well, except the tiger coil, looks more like the Frankenstein of coils, looks downright mutated and mutilated.
