    A 1 Ohm coil (7/8 wraps of 28g on a 16g needle) around a wisp of rolled cotton in an RM2 on a Reo Grande makes me a very happy piggy!

    Great responses everyone! Thanks for all the feedback!

    I just set up a Kayfun with a 10 wrap microcoil 30g Kanthal at 2.3 ohms. I found this to be an anemic vape on a mech, and too coolis, although it works great on my Provari. So now I guess I know what my upper limit is on a mech

    2.3 seems high for a 10 wrap 30g micro. (methinks?)

    I am so mad I vaped an EGO for the first 11 months of vaping!
    I had the Ego Mega type B atomizer for $10 each on a Ego C twist.
    I always thought, this isn't that great lol!
    Then I upgraded to a Provari in December 2012.
    Now July I think I found the keeper!
    Reo Grand!

    I can confirm that lol.

    Now I find even a 1.5 ohm micro with 30g is kinda weak. Its weird but I tested the battery on a mech at 3.8v and the vape wasnt so good. I put the same iGo-L on a Provari at 3.7v and all of a sudden its alive. I'm thinking maybe I have to clean my mech but I cleaned it just a week ago. Plus it seems I cant get a decent vape with microcoils on a mech, no matter which of my mods I use. They all give out weaker vapor. But works fine on the Provari.

    I'm thinking I should play around with twisted Kanthal

    +1 on that! If it wasnt for superX, I wouldn't know what a microcoil was. The tutorial on building microcoils was especially good!

    How's the humidity in . . . . . ."The Far Side" . . . .kingdal? I went to Chicago recently (very humid) and my mech performance went to crap. Had to make a trip to the local Ace Hardware for 600 +1500 grit sandpaper and some "ox-guard" lube.

    I have one that I just wrapped with 30 gauge and it is 3.1 with 15 wraps so that is pretty close.
