For me... I use the 28 gage more than other gages. But I'd recommend having more than one gage wire in your toolbox. I have 32,30,28,&26 gages. I use Temco.com http://www.temcoindustrialpower.com/...tml?t1=kanthal.
You can also find pretty good deals on Amazon. There are other places people will recommend, but in my opinion, most, if not all, of their wire comes from Temco.
Thanks for the input and link. Picking up 26, 28 and 30.
All the various lite, version, + refer to versions of the original with different features. I thought the full version would be better with the ability to fill from the side until it started leaking on me and I pluged the fill hole with aquarium sealant.
I currently like filling from a screw in the bottom, although one of mine is leaking, or filling from the top, a little bit complicated.
Whatever features you pick get a clone from an named manufacturer, hcigar, tobeco, etc. and it will be of decent quality.
I top fill my Russians and Kayfun. I hate fiddling with that bottom screw and don't want to strip it out. There are a number of YouTube videos that show how to do it.
Personally, I find it much easier. YMMV
When does this "old enough to know better" kick in?
Love love love my FT KF 3.1ES.
Great build quality. No issues at all. My favorite KF and I have most.

In a side by side comparison the tobeco has been reviewed as having better build quality then the EH Pro...and a larger side air hole. I picked up the tobeco and have been very happy with it.
I am using 28 gauge kanthal, 1.4 ohm micro coil....works great
I get my wire from atomizer wick.com good prices and fast and free shipping.

For the sake of practice, I've been totally rebuilding it when changing flavors rather than just rewicking it. So far, I've had no issues with filling it, vape quality, etc. Sorry that I can't compare it to other Kayfun-style atties, but I have had a very good experience with the Black Edition.

Im pretty new to vaping as well as trying to build coils, with that being said I finally got in my Ehro Kayfun lite plus V2 yesterday. I soaked it in hot water with Dawn over night and cleaned it with a toothbrush today and rinsed with hot water and proceeded to build a coil for it.
I nailed it the first time with 6 wraps of 30 ga on a 2mm screwdriver which gave me 1.5 ohms as well as some rayon cellucotton, I threw some Killer Juice pina colada in it and popped it on my Provari V2 and wow what a difference in taste even from a Nautilus with a BVC.
I like all my Kanger and Aspire tanks but wish I would have bought a Kayfun from the start, super easy to build and no coil heads to buy and replace plus I love the large stainless steel tank so no worries of breakage there nor tank cracking juice.
