    I spent many months re-wicking but not rebuilding... primarily because I bought a boatload of spare heads when I first started vaping. However, I finally started reaching the end of life on some of the coils and, at the same time, picked up my first RTA. So I got myself some 30 ga. kanthal, watched a bunch of videos, and am now pretty competent at rebuilding single coil kanger heads. I'm still experimenting with what to do with dual coil kanger heads--I've tried a vertical coil in one, but the method I used was pretty time consuming, and I think I completed it out of luck rather than any skill--and my RTA has a pretty simple single coil deck, so I haven't done too much experimenting there....

    Yes, I have been rebuilding and perfecting my coils for almost a year now. It's cheaper to rebuild than buying coil heads all the time and I enjoy knowing that I am vaping on my own coils and I can change the ohms to whatever I want depending on how I feel. Thanks for another great contest.

    I do rebuild...a variety of drippers and also rebuild my protank heads. I'm a bit lazy when it comes to building, so I usually look for whatever will still vape at that moment and, when everything needs changing/rebuilding, I'll make a bunch of new coils and heads at one time. The reason I rebuild is that is better performance, flavor and economy.

    Thanks for this weeks contest!

    yes I rebuild my coils. Much better flavor and so much more cost effective.
    Thanks MadVape for the contest.

    I've been rebuilding for a while now. I can vary the ohms to whatever I'm in the mood for, (usually about 1.5Ω to 2.0Ω) and the flavor - vapor production is better than any stock coils I've ever used. Also there is nothing better than the taste of a brand new coil and wick, and it seems to be across all toppers, tanks, RDA....etc.

    Yes, I do rebuild. Kanger Heads (i like Protank V1 & Mini V2). I Also rebuild Kayfuns. Using 28 & 32 gauge wire. On the kangers I usually go for about 1.5 & 2.0 Ω. On the Kayfuns I usually go .9 to 1.1 Ω, but i do vary it up a bit depending on juice & device i want to use it on. I use cotton for wick. I rebuild because it's cheaper & I enjoy doing it, it's fun. I have found like most have the kanger rebuilds are much better in all aspects then the factory ones.

    Thanks as always for another great contest & prize package.

    Good Luck Everyone.

    I don't rebuild at this time. I educated myself and practiced, stocked up supplies for the Vapocalypse, but no big desire just yet. I have lots of cheap new heads that hit my sweet spot, so I'll wait until I start running low. The used heads wait in a baggie for future attention. It's pretty convenient to just swap in a new head every couple weeks.

    Yes, I do rebuild. I've used mainly protanks (until recently), so I have learned to rebuild the Kanger Heads. I also have a couple of cheap RBA/RDAs that I am now building on as well, and they are getting more and more use lately.

    I like that I can, inexpensively, have a fresh new wick and wire to vape with in a short amount of time. Can't beat the cost of kanthal and cotton! TYTYTY for the chance at this great prize!

    I don't rebuild because I don't know how to. However, I do re-wick Kanger coils, so maybe someday. ;)

    Thanks for another contest and great prize!

    Good Luck All!

    Yes, I use rebuildables. I would prefer being able to swap out coil heads but I can't get the flavor and/or vapor production that I can get from rebuilding.

    I love to rebuild and I like 28ga and elfswick. I bought a magma for my mech mod and I'm really enjoying doing different coils and ohms and I use little screwdrivers to make coils and bought a $10 torch so it's handy for kanger heads..thanks for another great are the best......

    usually at work
    I build my igo dripper and sometimes do my kanger coils. I have more trouble with the kangers, they usually wind up tasting burnt and are often leaky. I wish I had a foolproof method to do a better job with them. I've watched a bunch of videos and think I am doing things right, but I must be doing something wrong (If anyone has a youtube link to a good one, I'd appreciate it :):):) ) But I can make a nice one that is reliable for the dripper. The thing I like most about building is that I am more self-reliant and know that I will always have something to vape. Thank you for the contest Crowedude654!

    Yes I rebuild, because it is cheaper and the coils I make work better and last longer.

    I started rebuilding to save money and its nice to be able to try different builds to see how it affects flavor and vapor.

    No, I'm too lazy and don't know how I do rewick my kanger coils. If I ever get a rebuildable, I'll learn maybe, but i have a few friends that have offered to rebuild for me if I do.

    I do rebuild. I enjoy rebuilding everything I can; RBAs and RDAs for myself, and even Heads for things like the ProTank and others when I do them for other people. I like being able to customize the wick, wire, and ohms to suit my needs, or the needs of others that I do it for when the send me Heads. I have always been the techie type and don't mind taking the time to fiddle and tweak to get a wick and coil setup just right. Plus, rebuilding is so much cheaper!

    Thanks for the contest and a chance at this great prize package! :thumb:
