    That cotton looks really thick to me, is it really that thick or do I make mine too thin? Myself I like about 6-7 wraps on 30g that gives me 1.5- 1.6 ohms. Anything cooler and I feel like it's a little too cool for my taste. But it really is subjective to what each of us prefers.

    One of these days, pdib.. one of these days. I'm gonna build a coil that when you see it you'll say "... dayum"

    LOL

    I just got the 24 for fun really. That stuff is really cheap and I'm thinking 24 might be good to play with if I want to do some monstrosity of a coil that would require a lot of length but where I still want to keep resistance low. Also.. I'm thinking it'll be good to play with some more "coil signage". I do plan to do some more artsy-fartsy coils but really don't want to have to stack batteries again to "light up the R"

    Oh, and I do have some neat concrete picture frames I need to hang

    Cahdek, not too much cotton sticking out.. too much stuffed in the coil. If your flavors are muted try pulling that out and twisting up a tiny little strand, see how that does you.

    I took this pic the other night to show someone how much cotton I use and what my wicks look like before I put them in the coil. Not that I am any kind of author-i-tah on the matter, this is just works well for me (and how!)

    ↑ that there is a 4 on the VAP scale.

    edit: naw, hard to say, looks like you don't put in more than you use. I start with something much longer, but not much more dense.

    I know you're joking, Stats; but I want to make it clear that you've built many coils that left me saying just that.

    I do still trim off a bit from each end. Seeing pics of all these coils can be misleading, they are so incredibly tiny (that.. is most certainly NOT what "she" said)

    I.. wasn't but wow, that's quite nice to hear, from the dibster!

    Your coil madness has very often been a benchmark for me to emulate and learn from.

    Thanks stat! Ive started with a little pinner but it was too loose in the coil. This onw I had to twist and twist to get it to fit and it was a good fit tight. I'll try splitting the difference to see how that does.

    Come on vaping nirvana. ... I've reached you once and I'll find you again
