    I use them for flavor, Fused Claptons bring out more sharp and distinct flavors. I started with bare, went twisted then have tried the real exotic coils. Personally I stick with fused Claptons for everything above that like aliens, etc. have some improved flavor but not the huge jump like fused Claptons. I spin my own and IMO anything above Fused is't worth the effort.

    Since you use tc you shouldn't have any ramp issues. Would advise next time you order you use AVS (Advanced Vape Supply). You will find the pre-built coils and spools superior and well worth a couple extra bucks. A good exotic coil can last up to 3 months with proper care.

    Demon Killer, I believe those are the cheap Chinese crap coils, I'd avoid them. If you're looking for prebuilt find a good independent builder or go to somewhere like Advanced Vape Supply or Kidney Puncher. Me, I just spin my own, Fused Claptons are actually pretty simple to make.

    No need to disagree darling. I like triple core claptons (28*3/40 for example) very much as well. ;)
    But the addition of more layers of outer wraps is almost useless, because ramp up increases massively, without any significant benefit concerning flavor or cloudproduction. But at least they look nice.

    Love you, but...I get better flavor. I order the coils with the thinnest wires. Sacrifice a couple weeks of coil life, but ramp is great. I've tried every coil from AVS. Tri core is my sweet spot in the Nanos. I get a lovely lung hit and don't sacrifice much battery life since I prefer a cooler vape.

    I'm the same way, small gauge SS the flavor is great, the ramp up time is great but yes there is a small sacrifice in the overall life of the coil. I still get though a couple months off of a pair of coils, hell I even use 34gx2/44g SS fused claptons at times ;) Plus I have a few friends of mine that are addicted to my 32x2/38g Kanthal fused claptons.
