    28 Awg kanthal is standard for micro coils imo

    Yep It is for my target resistance of 1.5 ohms.

    But on my VV I shoot for 2 ohms. 29 is my favorite for that.

    My problem was this...

    very small diameter with more wraps or larger diameter with fewer wraps, both yielding nearly the same resistance. The smaller diameter coil having a thinner piece of cotton within it would not reabsorb quickly. The first toot would be great, the second not so great and the third is dry.

    The larger diameter coil would allow more cotton and thus more juice. I didn't dry out but the the trade off was vapor production and flavor. Was it unacceptable? well it was for me... that's personal.

    What I did... Realizing that I need the larger diameter coil but I also needed the same overall length of coil that the smaller diameter coil yielded, I needed lower resistance wire. than the 28 ga I had. Rather than order a thicker wire I twisted two 28 gauge wires together. The has the same effect on resistance that going from one coil to two coils does in a Dual coil atomizer. The difference is that you still have one coil. The gave me the ability to make a coil that was both wider in diameter to accommodate more wick and thus more juice, but also allow me to have a coil that is just as long as my very small diameter coils.

    Pros, larger coil, with the same resistance as your smaller single wire coils.
    Cons, tricky to make for first timers, Takes longer for the coil to glow when firing naked, takes longer for the coil to cool when current is withdrawn.

    Remember, Creating big clouds isn't just about low resistance. You have to be able to supply juice to the coil and move vapor away from the coil so new vapor can be created. Heat, juice and air!

    The diamond build like in Rip Trippers vid solves the slow wicking through 1/16" coil for me; has it's pros and cons.
    My coil of choice is 3/32" ID twisted 30GA; easy, fast wicking, durable, big clouds and quality vapor.

    My 1.4 ohm diamond on a mech is too dang high. 0.7 ohm (20 watts) should perform like Rip's.

    IMO stick to the keep it simple function over form. 8 wraps 28g on 1/16th @ 1 ohm is working amazing

    I use simple 8 wrap 1.2 ohm 3/32" ID twisted 30GA single coil most of the time.

    Fancy coils just for kicks.
