Have you ever dripped before? If this is your 1st go I would say it's:
a. Too much nic, when i went from my 3 year old Inferno to my Natural with a RSST RBA I went from 18mg to 12mg. I couldn't vape 18mg with it. I'm getting some 6mg to use on my Igo-W, 12 isn't too bad but I want to try 6mg.
b. Air hole misaligned or not the proper size. I'm not sure about the Igo-L but my Igo-W had 2 holes that required a dark room and a bright light to find. I drilled them out 3/32" and it's a much better drip experience.
Those are couple things I would look at.
That's been happening to me sort of. I'll wrap a micro coil, fire it and it looks beautiful. Throw some cotton in there, saturate it and when I fire it that way, vapor shoots off the coil a couple different ways like when you have a hot spot. The taste is off too with more throat hit than normal. Freaking sucks. I had some great micro coils and they worked great before. Not sure what I'm doing wrong now. Oh well, I'll get it back to awesome soon I hope!
Will do, I'll update tonight.

I'm gonna have to drill the hole out seems that when there more airflow the vapor cools a bit thus giving a nicer hit.
But that's just what I've observed. Right now my evod is producing way better VTF then the igo so far not really diggin it. Hopefully after I drill the hole it might get a bit better hopefully

The only time I had that issue with a micro was when I tried placing the coil out closer to the outside, so I moved it closer to the centre and problem solved.
Currently vaping on my nemesis/kfl setup
Interesting idea I'll try that out before drilling the hole out. Thanks

Make sure the wick can slide through the coil with very little resistance. It will swell up big time after it is saturated. I always wait about 15 mins before I take a hit on a new wick.
Also you can try the Dragon Coil. Instead of wicking through the coil, a bed of cotton is put under the coil. Great hits.
Also 12mg is harsher through an RBA than it is through a tank..
IGO-L requires fine-tuning. For me, it was enlarging the airhole and adding a second.
after that, assuming I built a quality coil, almost all my issues with vape quality have to do with airflow and wicking. sometimes wicking affects airflow, ie when the wicks obstruct air circulation to the coils.
my goal is to maximize air circulation to create a big cool vape. by creating a clear path of fresh air from the airhole, to coil, and into your mouth. so use your judgement when considering the coil's leg length and placement and the wick amount and placement.
airhole isn't a variable anymore because you already drilled it. but you can experiment by plugging one hole to see the effects of having one or two. my 2nd airhole is much higher than the first and its above the coil, whereas the original hole is aligned with the coil. when I vape with only the higher airhole, I get less vape and a warmer hit. I don't like. but vape out of the aligned airhole, i get a thicker and cooler cloud. I like.
