    Better flavor at 47w, better hit 50-53. I need to switch over to a sweeter juice. This melon blend doesn't work for me if very warm. Going to have some sweeter juices steeped in 4 more days. Thinking pistachio cream maybe.

    Yum, pistachio cream sounds delicious. (I don't DIY though.)

    I can see the Zeus getting a new build tonight along with the Boaz, thanks!

    You will probably use much higher watts than I would like. The coil and the Zeus can handle them. You use rayon don't you?

    Anything past 65W on the Aegis is really draining on battery life, but we will see how it fares.

    Rayonati Acolyte here, Sally's or dm Viskose. I should try some KU one of these days... ;)

    Any reason it has to be on the Aegis?

    No, but it was bought to live on the Aegis and then I would have to find another tank for the Aegis... :w00t:

    I'm seriously pondering the Juggerknot or the CCI Hive... Not for the Aegis, just for a new RTA.

    Does anyone have the CCI Hive? Definitely interesting looking. Have a vague memory of seeing it before.

    I think someone mentioned the Crius 2 earlier in this thread. Anyway, after over a month of not buying anything, I broke down and ordered one to try.

    Ok.
    Where to start.
    Why did I wait so long to get into the RTA pool?
    I
    Don't
    Know.

    It took me 10 minutes to wick and prime. The flavor fidelity is outstanding. The vapor and air flow smooth. Perhaps I have a knack for wicking or maybe I just got lucky on my first try.
    Don't know.

    I cannot imagine going back to a Sub ohm tank after this.
    If anyone is on the fence with this tank, take it from me a building rookie: you will not regret it.
    Specks:
    Coil: 2.5 ID ss316sl Clapton
    Wick: cotton bacon
    Liquid: 60vg/40pg
    Air flow 1/3 open, 22 watts.

    Tasty.

    Thank you to the ECF universe for putting up with my questions.
    I give this tank an 11 out of 10.

    Well I put the AVS framed staple in the Zeus, removed a wrap as 7 was just too wide for my liking and wicked it up with Rayon. 80W and it's just starting to come alive, me thinks way too much metal for the chamber/airflow. I'll be going back to the 5 wrap Juggernot coil I had in there previously, twas a good idea but not for me. :D

    I find I enjoy the framed staple more in the Drop than the Zeus. After I run a few sweeter flavors at higher watts I'll decide if I want to keep it in Zeus. If not I'll try a 3.5mm tri core fc in it. May go with a spaced 5 wrap. Have it admit I am curious about the 2.5mm coils some are liking. Have a whole spool so lots of wire to play with.:D

    I can't do 2.5mm coils any more, in a quad coil config yes, but not as singles.

    I have a spool of AVS's triple core FC, love the wire but I find it gets gunked up really quickly with the 36g wrap.

    My spool is tri core parallel fc 30gx3/38g and it doesn't gunk up much. Of course lower watts and diy juices contribute to my luck with the wire.

    I can't use SS316l wire because a 5 wraps 4mm Flat Clapton coil only gives 0.17 ohm, the resistance of 4 wraps coil will be too low for my mod.:facepalm:

    I am waiting for the arrival of my Kanthal Flat Clapton wire.
    I am dying to try a 4mm 4 wraps spaced coil in Zeus.

    Put a warmer flavor in the Zeus this evening and turned the watts up a bit and fell back in love with my coil. still going to install a different coil in a couple of weeks tho.

    See?
    This is the so called TPD Compliant version..
    They prohibit half the juice capacity of the tank by damming off the juice under the wicks...

    Genius (not genius)

    Maybe it explains why some tips aren't working ?

    I am going to see if I can remove it or if I have to cry to the manufacturers...

    (I already did they didn't reply).

    I just removed the 2 part gold 510 pin in the hope I could release the deck...
    Nope..
    It looks like the metal chunk is machined onto the deck anyway..

    Damn..

    Still, while I was at it, I tried the very short wicks... It is a billion times better at 37 watts (decreasing to 32)...

    Tasty...

    Pain in the .... as I only get about 4 hours daily before I need to refill...

    Damn you EU! And your arbitrary TPD laws...

    Addendum

    I do get a mouthful of juice after filling up now.. But am happy..

    If it floods ... I just blow into it and it doesn't seem to come out the airholes...

    I never mentioned but coil is 2ml (I think) parallel about as wide as it looks in the above photo...

    Cotton is Boots cheapo.
