    Try more cotton on that wick. I use much longer legs and find flavor is through the roof, it and TH are almost too much. Vapor isn't where I want it to be though. I suspect its from being semi flooded and I just need to find the right length for the legs. The vape is almost like the airhole isn't big enough or lined up correctly, very juicy and wants to expand in the lungs. Yours seems to be doing the opposite and we need to meet in the middle.

Anyway, the cotton is holding up just great with this little jobber. This is 26g Nichrome (=25 Kanthal) @ 0.5Ω. I think my little non-traditional center tuft is overkill. The vape is VERY sweet. Kinda reminds me of that clown on the Simpsons. (I think) . . . . . (not the sweet part, the tuft part)







    Next time I'll just try a straight micro @ .5Ω. I was being forgiving with the cotton; but, apparently, no need.

    ADDIT: and YES, I see that little gap in the coil. So shoot me
    Cool looking coil there, my atty delivers juice through a hole in the positive post, that center tuft would hit it about right. Are you vaping Klorine?

    Nope. It's Blue Voodoo from MEL. Not my fave. but good for the occasional "candy" moment.

    Coil porn??
    I have mastered and grown board with dual coil (sorry for the blasphemic reference in this thread) genesis setups. This AM I saw a micro coil thread and a search led me here.
    So I am subscribing and going to read thru this thread.
    Truly some beautiful coil work here and I want to play

    I figured out my problem w/the muted flavor. One of those 'DUH!' moments; I was pulling too much cotton into the coil. I didn't think so, but I was. And the reaction time w/the 2.1 ohm coil was just too slow for me tho so I wrapped a 1.4 Ohm coil last nite & vaped it all day at work today. It's outstanding!

    without having read thru yet, have you considered using cheesecloth? It can be unthreaded then sewn w a needle. I use that method on mesh wicks sometimes. Search for "Quigsticks" if not familiar. The same principle will work for inserting cotton strands in this application.

    Bro, as good as rolled cotton works, I am absolutely content with it. But thanks for the info.

    Speaking of coming to play, if you don't have a REO and bottom fed RBA, you are missing out on the true benefits of micro coiling - micros really dig fresh squozen juice on demand .

    Yea thats why I'm trying it in drippers. Plus it's just a new coil venture to play with.

    I've owned a few REOs before there were BF RBAs. I'll have to pick up another with all these new attys for them.

    I've had the Reo for 5 days using a micro out of 28 Awg, 20 wraps, 1.3 ohms. After rewicking with cotton 6-7 times today before 2pm and finishing my day with 1-2 tokes per squonk, I pulled a couple of strands of silica through the coil. Now it's working much better for me.
