    I do rebuild. Started with the Protank heads, and move to Kayfuns.
    I like the flavor from the Kayfuns, and the fact that I can build to whatever specific ohm that I want to use.

    Yes,i rebuild.The reason,i was using a pro tank,and the coils were getting expensive,so i decided to watch some videos on how to rebuild those.When i realized how much better the taste was,i decided to try out a few rda's then went on to the fogger's,orchids,etc.So rebuilding those little pro tank heads opened up a whole new world to me.

    I rebuild. I was tired of leaky tanks and coils which were DOA, plus, I kept hearing about how much better the flavor was, so I bought some RTAs/RDAs, some Kanthal, an ohm meter and some cotton, and started building my own. I'm really glad I did.

    I haven't done any rebuilds yet but they are coming. Have had a meter since before I decided on doing builds cause I wanted to be able to check my prebuilts. I now have the wire and wick for it - now I just need to take the time and go for it.

    I absolutely rebuild. I've always been a bit of a tinkerer, so when I got back in to vaping and saw the advances in technology, such as RDAs, I thought it would be fun to try out down the road.

    After vaping for a few days with my iTaste VV, and seeing how quickly the flavor went weak on the clearos that came with it, and the cost of replacement, I dove in and ordered three Igo-Ws, an ohm meter and a couple of rolls of Kanthal and cotton balls and haven't looked back.

    Of course the economies of it hasn't really panned out, since last Friday I ordered a telescopic mod, 18650s, 18350s, charger and a Kayfun (from MadVapes, natch). That would have bought a lot of clearos and naughty heads, but where's the fun in that!

    I don't rebuild yet, but I definitely want to start soon. I've got a few old Kanger heads to practice with and a Stanley precision screwdriver set for wrapping, just gotta get the ohm meter, kanthal, N cotton! I want to get like a Taifun eventually, maybe even a mech mod with a dripper.

    Thanks for the contest!

    I do want to learn to rebuild but don't have the funds for it so I have always wanted to but don't know how to start or what I need so this kit would be perfect.

    Yes, I rebuild. I started off on Kanger protank coils, but I hated having to buy them every week. So I started rebuilding those. I could choose what ohms I wanted to do as well as the wick material (cotton, rayon, etc). It gave me much more flexibility as to how I wanted to vape. Then I moved into Kayfuns, Foggers, and now the Lemo. If I don't like the build I did, I just do it again. Easy peezy and much less expensive!:D P.S. I almost forgot to mention the flavor difference from premade clearo coils to custom homemade coils I make! Nite and day!

    I have yet to try rebuilding. Only started vaping 2 months ago. And just haven't bought a rebuildable yet

    I am just learning to rebuild. I'm finding it is less expensive and lasts longer

    No, I haven't done any rebuild since I am fairly new to the world of vaping.
    One month was not enough time to try many things.

    But, the time will come soon.

    Thank you for the contest.

    I rebuild. I started rebuilding Evod coils after about 3 weeks of vaping because of what I read here on ECF. I now use mostly Protank2's and build them between 1.1 and 1.8 Ohms using cotton. The flavor and vapor production just blows away stock coils and for under $20 you can get darn near a lifetime of supplies.

    Thank you for the generous and ongoing contests.

    Yes sir, I make coils for all of my tanks and also for my catarpillar rda. I enjoy building more now that I am getting better at it and I love how I can make a fresh coil everyday if I want to. I save money and love the convenience. Thank ya'!

    Yes, definitely! I enjoy the flavor more. I have 4 RDA's going at any given time! Excessive I suppose, but I like variety!
    Thank you for all of these wonderful contests!;)

    I like rebuilding also. It gives me total control with no surprises.

    Do you rebuild? Why or why not?

    I want to, cause I'm cheap. But I have found I'm more lazy. I have wire and wick, I know I could do it, but kicking back with a fresh coil out of the box and enjoying my vape is nice.

    But soon I will. And I'll prolly kick myself for not doing it sooner.

    Not yet. Started vaping to quit analogs. My equipment started simple and I've been slowly upgrading. I've been told I'm progressing nicely and should be ready to start "rebuilding" in another few months at the rate I'm going. I keep using the excuse that I'm not a cloud chaser, but I have gotten to the point where I'm a flavor chaser. Rebuilding is probably where I'll end up, just don't know when yet.

    I do not rebuild...yet. I would like to try my hands at it at some point, but haven't had the fundage to do so.

    Thanks for the contest.

    Be well,
