My father would agree. Little Sister was my favorite.
Elvis' version of Unchained Melody is phenomenal. Heartbreak Hotel is still a favorite.
Forgot about Unchanged Melody.
And Sting is the King of Pain.... That wire sounds like a lot of fun by the way, thanks for reporting back!
At this point all I can say is that anyone that hasn't tried rectangle wire yet you really should. It is AWESOME!
I still have wire from kbee from 4 years ago! I am gonna order some rectangle next time i do a wire order.
Should be interesting to use in some exotic builds. Interested to see how it performs, looks, and the qualities it shows.
I use 22ga Kanthal or Nichrome 80 depending on the rda and regulated or mech, and hammer it flat. Usually I stay 4.3-4.96mm id. Flatwire or rectangle wire has less ramp up time, great flavor and more surface area ratio to resistance value.It also creates less airflow turbulence resulting in a cooler vape. It is ideal for mech mods and single coils for sure. If you care to. there is a youtuber that has done lots of research on flatwire and also has very good theories on airflow. His name is Morten Oen and that is the channel name also.
Morten is an interesting man.
Been using flatwire coils exclusively for about 4-6 weeks now. Decided to put a tri-core fused clapton (28x3 wrapped with 40ga) in a Haku. Weaksauce! Flatwire has spoiled me. Vapor seemed weak, not as satisfying.
My homemade Daedalus will collect dust now. Once you give Flatwire a chance, you're done with the round stuff.
Just the opposite here. Was back on my tri cores after two flat wire builds. To be fair I was having a problem getting the flat wire builds dialed in.
i generally do 4.36-4.76mm(3/16-11/64 drillbit) builds w/22ga kanthal about 4-5 wraps. Youv'e got to hammer it thin enough..... To keep the wraps from getting real springy, I use a pencil torch and torch it on the drillbit. I use locking hemostats to hold leads while torching and also leave drillbit in vise helps. But yes Letitia, there is a learning curve. My first few were not very stellar. I feel your pain.
lol I don't get along with tools and will probably never hammer wire. I can barley manage my grub tools. Bought a pair of twisting wire pliers, hilarity ensued. I bought some ss 316l rectangular wire from Kbee. I'll get bored someday and give it another go, maybe in the Drop.
