    What batteries do you have?

    That is the all important question. If you're not thinking of the limitations of them, best not enter one at all.

    If the rules say your build must be safe, did they define a definition of safe?

    At or below the pulse amp limit of the battery you are using but if you are pulsing your limited to a 3 second drag

    Wrap a sick 26g parallel and load it with 100% VG and win it all. Do a 3/4 wrap around a 2.5mm. Your atty and batty will make massive difference as well. Your coil, airhole and wick positioning will also affect your clouds. So get that setup in optimal position. Most super airy drippers should do the trick. Do the same build around a 2.5mm or a 3mm mandrel and see what that does. Try tilting the coils up. Use Rayon. I think shoulder wicks give the biggest clouds since there is so much air under the coil where all the vapor is spitting out. Don't pack the atty with wick---that's where people blow it. You need plenty of air with that 100%VG. At the very least, you will not embarrass yourself with a version of this setup. Don't take any vapor into your lungs. The cloud winners only do massive mouth pulls....Leave all the vapor in your mouth before you blow your clouds...The guy with the best setup and the most massive squirrel cheeks will win it. Good luck.

    Edit: I would use the Helios...

    use the 24 ga. Parallels, 4 or 5 wraps (i prefer 5) on a 1/8th bit. Even then, you are gonna be at a disadvantage to anyone running nichrome 22, 20 or 18ga. But the 24 should do OK if you practice your breathing and use straight VG.
