    Default IGO-L Issue?

    Hey Everyone,
    So I built my IGO-L I created a wonderful Micro coil and I'm using a cotton wick, BUT i'm getting a super harsh hit the wick is properly soaked but the hit is really harsh. I'm not digging it at all I am taking lung hits but it's very unpleasant Juice being used is MT. Baker Banana Cream pie its a 50/50 blend with 12mg of NiC.
    Can anyone provide any feedback on this issue? If i left some details out just leave reply
    Thanks again!

    Could be a lot of issues, but the first two that come to mind:
    1. Too much cotton, coil choking the wick, causing dry burnt hits or
    2. 12 mg juice in a dripper causing a much stronger nic/throat hit than you're used to.

    How are you aligning your airhole?

    Position of the coil relative(above, below, side to side) to airhole can greatly effect the hit.

    Align the airhole directly with the coil, and even height wise, and see how that effects it.

    And to expand on that: the height of the coil in relation to the air hole is also significant.
    If you can, push the coil down lower and it might smooth it out. Higher the coil, the harsher the hit. Generally. YMMV.

    I've heard of peeps sayin that to much NIC might be a harsh hit.

    So no comment on this(and jonny's)?

    I can take my Igo-L and misalign the airhole and turn a perfect hitting cloud machine into harsh death.

    I think it's too much cotton, take half of what you think you need for a wick,, try that..

    As of now the hole is directly in front of the coil. Also about the Cotton I don't I put to much I took about a 1in. long piece of cotton and I roll it thin enough to go through my coil. I think I might drop the coil down below the Airhole. I wrapped my kanthal around a 3mm rod I don't know if this will effect anything but I thought I might throw that out there. I really wanna get this sucker running especially after hearing all the praise everyone has for them Or at least on how functional it can be. I mean if I puff it like a cigar and it's not that bad but taking a drag kills my lungs. I just want a good vape hahahah, thanks guys for all the input thus far.

    Yes. Do that and let us know how it goes after a couple of hits!
