    Be careful - it's very brittle! And hot wrapping a coil can help depending on what you use.

    I also run ceramic and will get bored with this coil long before I have issues with it.

    What's with the gaps between the coils FB? A new experiment?

    Yes, and I think I like it. When I'm not travelling as much I'll try more side by side comparisons. This is a 1.2 ohm coil with 29 gauge kanthal and I'm getting more flavor.

    This is where I sourced it from. http://http://sngvapor.com/RBA/Wire/XC132 I also used a #59 drill bit through the hallow part of the ceramic and wrapped the coil around both. Mount the coil and pull out the bit and you're good to go.

    Unflavored juice or just a light colored juice? Looks great.

    I do pretty much the same. I changed from 6 wrap of 30g to 8 wraps of 29g. Insert pin, wrap coil around, mount, slip out pin. Voila! Leave a little space between coil wraps unlike when I use cotton I crunch coils together. With the ceramic I leave space to hold the juice better.

    Not thread hi-jacking as I intend to participate in this competition soon, but is it normal that I change my cotton wick almost everyday? I am using 28g micro with 8 wraps and unflavored 12mg/with some menthol. Maybe it's they way I dry burn and clean my coil? Any advice? I do notice that my cotton lasts longer on a newly built coil, but only a day on a dry-burned one.

    Thanks! I can donate an extra 5 cotton balls for the top price since I kinda intruded!
    gives you what you need, not what you want..,

    I think for us that rewick daily (or more often), I'm guessing they'll want US to be the ones to pay in the cotton balls .

    BTW: I run the same coil: 28ga 8 wrap micro. Nice choice, IMHO, lol!
