    I'd use less cotton on the tails and density. For me i cut the cotton at about deck width or just long enough to tuck under the coil, and for thickness you want it to have just a little resistance when threading through. If your getting a funny taste wash your hands before handling the cotton. If you still get a funny taste try boiling the cotton a couple times.

    Is that that macro coil rip trippers did? Looks fine I guess seems like a bit much cotton but if its macro rip said to use a bunch.

    Hows it vape?

    I actually just cut the tails as Smexly suggested the width of the deck and vape is great. I think I'm gonna move the coils up just a fuzz. That way they can get alil more air over the coils . It was alil warm

    Don't know why my mind is making it look so big lol. Probably those huge puffs of cotton lol.

    You can also tr moving the coils a bit towards the center next time for easier stuffing and cleaner look. (Not to mention getting more air directly on the coil rather than on an angle)

    You mean center between the posts or pushing toward the posts? That's another thing I was for sure about, How long or short I should make the legs .

    Moving the coils up will increase TH. Like others say above, closer to the edge of the deck and air source will produce a better vape with less TH.

    The heat is not caused by coil position, it is that the resistance is lower than your sweet spot. To reduce heat you would want to increase resistance :)

    And FYI those look a little bigger in diameter than a micro coil.

    Here's a fact sheet to clear up the confusion created by the you tube vid jocks:
