    Anyone have tried this yet? it's coming to a point that people outside of the Philippines has already looked into it but many are skeptical, including me. I'm thinking of getting one for myself to try, but has anyone else used it? do you think its a real valid thing to produce so much vapor just because of this wire?

    Have not tried the "Bakero" version, but I have tried Fettuccine or ribbon wire from Chief Vapers. I think that the ribbon wire will help in producing more vapor, but a lot of the vids with crazy plumes have more to do with build and hardware. A lot the vids have guys using RA's with 2mm bored air holes and even dual coils. Take a look at the vapelyfe vid on Vaping Monkeys youtube page and you will see that those kind of plumes can even be made with regular kanthal wire. As pinoy vapers here in the Philippines always say...it's all in the build.

    I know that it's all in the build, but i think the idea of a wire creating a big difference is just kinda crazy. i

    I think the wire has a wider surface that covers the wick. Much larger portions of the wick are being heated by the wire causing it to produce more vapor. I'm not so sure about my info but that's how I see it.

    ... I ordered some kanthal ribbon (as close as could be figured to match) to give it a go... I agree the increased surface area will be something to explore...
    ...build + room conditions also... a high humidity environment creates exceptionally large plumes...as someone else mentioned..
    ...good luck.. cheers, ~M

    Seems like it's the low Ω that you can get with the flat along with a large contact area that makes all the steam...
    almost any sub 1Ω coil will make a ton of plumes, just harder to keep it fed.

    I'm also interested in these wires, but I'm thinking of making one myself by just laminating some kanthal to make it wider.

    Will this wire work on my Provari? My Provari can't take lower than 1.5 ohms.

    I've used it on my Provari V2 and Provari Mini V2 running at 1 ohm at 3.6 V. Is there something wrong with your Vari?
