    Stagger practice. The staggered 24g in the middle didn’t quite grab the fuse like I thought it would. I wanted to add on more set of frames and fuse again but I could tell It wasn’t gonna work out this time. This 36g seems huge after using 40g!

    Enigmas have one bump, hedgehogs have more than one

    Enigma:
    Screenshot_20180808-125718.png

    Hedgehog: (this one is also stitched, I've heard that makes it easier to line it up) Screenshot_20180808-125810.png


    Razorbacking is claptoning ribbon across the thin side instead of the wide side, then you can alien it, mohawk, enigma or hedgehog or whatever:

    Screenshot_20180808-130041.png
    Screenshot_20180808-130058.png

    And this is a stitched razorbacked hedgehog *faints*

    Yeah my IG avatar is a rainbow unicorn lol

    Hehe ...That stitched razorback hedgehog is something else...the mind boggles

    Reckon you can pull that one off?

    Also mine wasn’t proper enigma cause I didn’t stich it ...I’m useless with stitching coils

    Proper enigmas dont have to be stitched - stitching is an add-on :) a guy did tell me stitching helps with the wrapping, though, may be why its so common

    It could be that nobody called them hedgehogs when you made it - builders come up with new names for things sometimes

    The golem fits more than what the cap will allow, the same sized coils have been fit in the Golem with the cap on and its the only RDA I have that could fit them, the Warrior RDA seems to be a large contender....I love that one also.

    28g Frames + 17ply .3R Mass with room to spare. The thing is with the Golem, you can put the coils anywhere on the bar, no screws or anything to hinder what width your coil is. I always found the screws on the goon were always where my larger coil's leads needed to go and there hasn't been a RDA that had the room where those spots were available unless it was 30mm.

    I will have builds for my @WotofoOfficial Warrior RDAs soon also, but for some glamour shots.

    Daaayum that’s fn awesome. You just leveled up for sure lol. I gotta know, core width and decore gauge? Those look so cool. Lay down some baby aliens in the gaps and go supersonic! For real though, you’re a coilsmith extraordinaire

    It was 30g decore, and 1.5mm width - 7x.4 with 26g frames - I'm going on idea that decore should be about 1/6th width of the stick, pretty sure height matters too but havent tried .3 and 28g frames yet to test it
