    tucked one end of wick under a coil on each side & trimmed the rest off.

    Ohm'd out to 1.0, was hoping for less but oh well.

    Vaping goodness I was concerned I would have to drill out the air holes but it hits fine & I am getting thick clouds with great flavor & TH. BTW, the top cap is a tight fit on the o-rings, I lubed them up with juice and that did the trick for me.
    I have a feeling these ohm's aren't right. Those numbers seem really high seeing those set ups. They both look below .5ohm to me....??

    Bishopheals has a video where he's using 4wraps duel & getting .4ohm.

    You're probably right, I did a second build with xc-116 & dual 3/2 wraps of 30 AWG & it ohm'd out to 0.7, here's a pic.



    This was (and still is) a better build IMO, i must have been shorting out on the cap or base the first time.

    Any one bored out the air hole's? If so what size & how's it feel for 'ya?

    I feel like they could be just a hair, bigger. Not sure. I am really enjoying the draw & production. Seems like it would help from having to draw as much & firing the coils as long.

    Really like to hear from some one who's modded it. Hate when I over do it...

    Got one today... 2 x 4 wrap 30g eko wool double 1.5mm... ohmed at .66
    Been vaping it about 1/2 hour...
    I like how big it is... and double holes, but must say my Forge/clone for 1/3 the price (triple post, smaller diameter, 1 hole) is almost as good.
    Too early to tell as i need to get the hang of it... but duals and low ohms are the best vape i've had yet... eats the juice though, AND the batts... makes a 18650 feel like a 18350...




    edit:ok an hour later... i think the Nimbus puts out better flavor than the Forge/clone... it has room for big asz wicks. yow. i think i'm gonna like this more and more.

    I have had mine for a month or so and love it. Have a ribbon 3 wrap dual coil set up with both holes drilled to 1/16. CLOUDS and quite a bit of flavor too

    I know this is probably a newb question,

    but how exactly did u get ur silica from ur 2nd picture to 3rd picture to be so much more compact and sitting on/in the well?

    Did u simply trim the excess silica that was projecting out over the well??

    so you arrange the loops inside the top cap, away from the holes which are adjacent to the coils?
