    Default Whats the best set-up for an IGO-L?

    I've got mine set up with a small piece of mesh wick with a bit of silica going through it and more silica tied to it. For whatever reason I'm not getting much flavor from it. At lest with fruit juices. What would be the best wick/coil set-up to get the most flavor out of it?

    I've noticed that air flow has a lot to do with vapor/flavor... Have you played with different air hole positions?

    Beyond that... Your setup sounds very complicated... My personal opinion and preference...

    KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid

    Doubled up 3mm Silica
    Just under 2" of 28 gauge Kanthal
    Evenly spaced

    Comes out to about 0.8 ohms... Perfect.

    If you want to run dual wicks drill out the air hole, then keep it going and drill out a second hole on the opposite side of your top cap. I use (x2) doubled over 3mm silica with a 3/2 wrap of 30 AWG Kanthal, 0.7 Ohms every time & a great vape.

    XC 116 (kiln treated) ceramic wick (doubled) and 0.5 x 0.1mm Ribbon Kanthal to get 1.5ohms. Extremely simple and fantastic results!

    I run cotton yarn and 30 AWG kanthal. I build the coil first 3/2 wrap and usually get .8ohms. Then I insert the yarn. Stock airhole and get great flavor and vapor.

    Built mine the day I got it with the short piece of silica and 32 kanthal that came with it. Been hitting great since that day and beats my gennies in terms of flavour and vapour production anytime.

    That being said mesh wicks do have an issue with flavour sometimes and especially so if you run silica through it. They seem to work against each other.

    Sometimes the best option is the simplest option.

    ok here's my input.
    silica - so/so
    xc-116-1/32"- 32ga @ 1.8 ohm - not so good.
    xc-116-bigger- 30ga @ 1.4 ohm - damn near perfect.

    Looks the setup I did this morning.

    xc-116 30ga @ 1.3Ω

    I'm loving the braided ceramic... holds a ton of juice and great flavor.

    How long are you guys letting the xc soak? I feel like mine tastes like hot mess similar to silica....I just cannot get a clean flavor out of my igo L..... do you get great flavor out of the gate? I pulled my xc and it looked a bit burnt.....seems really hot overall whether im using 32g or 29g kanthal.

    Whats the best set-up for an IGO-L?-imag0252.jpgWhats the best set-up for an IGO-L?-imag0253.jpgWhats the best set-up for an IGO-L?-imag0255.jpg

    Two loops of 1.5 braided ekowool, twisted 28g kanthal @ .4-.5 ohms.

    I have drilled my air hole out to 5/64 because I love the airy draw, and it produces TONS of flavor and vapor with the perfect TH.
