    Depends on how close your coil is to the airflow.The air is angled down. so the further away the coil is the lower it needs to be to get a direct stream. For a little bit I would put the cap on after install but before wicking and look down through the slots to gauge if the coil was right. Now I kinda got a feel for it.

    The fatty is HUGE ... the top cap barely fit so It's slammed right up against the air. I had to crimp the leads just to fit them in the posts lol

    Need to get me a goon block for single coil in it. The flavor gets pretty muted.

    I love a single coil in it - duals are too airy, but okay - I put the coils as close to the posts as possible, small ID, and so low that I can't see them through the air inlets if I look in horizontally - best flavor that way ime

    I agree about dual being a little airy. That's when I just throw some ~.1 in it, blast at 135 watts, and suck air like it's my last breath :teehee: Also works well for 150w+ series vaping.

    As far as placement ... if you look angled downward, following the pitch of the afc instead of head on into it, you will probably see your coils there ;) I'll have to try slamming it against the posts and a smaller ID. I've been stuck on 3 and 3.5 for a looong time now. A while back, when I was fresh into complex building, I had a number of bad experiences, concurrently, with smaller ID's. I just kinda steered clear of them after that. I should start experimenting again.


    Truth!! You can put like 3-4 mls in it.

    @zephyr

    Watch this video to learn where the best placement is, the KTX likes a bit warmer coils IMO, try some 5 Core 28g/36g Aliens (4 Wraps/3mm ID) on a Parallel Mod or Squonk

    Interesting!!! I agree on the warmer coils. It doesn't do as well with 3 core aliens. That last up close shot through the airflow to the coil is exactly where I put mine. Though he does say that non-smooth coils do better a little higher ... will have to try that.

    Hey @raymo2u ... what size are the screws? I'd love to pick up some that are either a few mm longer or that don't have a head so I can remove the base in the post hole and utilize that huge bottom part for some wider builds.

    2.5mm ID (with a typical coil length of ~7mm-8mm so the build is a relatively small one in comparison) does work for me in any decent 24mm or 25mm RDA, and does so regardless of the airflow type. But that's only if the coils are 1/ positioned immediately at the center of the airflow streams (which can be perpendicular side or bottom or angled either downward or horizontal angled to create a vortex kind of effect... it really doesn't matter as long as there is at least some reasonable amount of restrictiveness going on in there so that the "streams" truly are streams that have a direct focus kind of effect...) and 2/ positioned at a close enough distance from the air holes, and BTW muted/diluted flavor resulting from too much airiness (chamber size...) can still be remedied by using a low profile drip tip... excepting of course if the wattage is so horrendously low that the speed of vapor production is what I like to call "not there".

    Use a Butane Lighter (Pocket Torch), its easier and you can be much more creative. Just point the flame at one area and wait for it to glow orange, then slowly move it across the coil, depending on your distance from the coil, hand movement, and speed you can color the coil how you want.

    The purpose is for the experience, science, real world use, more than art


    And for fun, and to sacrifice wire to the Build Gods that they might grant me good builds this weekend




    And then cooked:

    Made my first .2R staple. Tricky to get the stack into the frames, but way easier to coil.
    2x32g, 6x.2r, 46g. SS316l cores, KD fuse. 5 wrap, 3mm id, 0.32 ohms. Vapes great in the nano!

    6x30g aliens. I think these are my favorite coils. I’m always happy with the vape and I don’t have to waste my ribbon. I love wide coils, but I don’t like how hot and power hungry 4+ 28g cores can get.
    6x30g, 36g, all ss316l, 3.5 wraps 3mm id, 0.075 ohms cold

    I failed on a couple staggered variations which is normal when you try to up the complexity so I settled for a fralien. For one thing I need one and for another is 3 in the morning. I can amend my staggered variations tomorrow, or later today, however you want to look at it.:tantrum::cuss2::idea:

    Some escalating Wireporn before I wrap it up later :D

    I'm sad because it's SO clean .. I just didn't quite stretch the parabolic quite far enough so it's pushing out :(

    Omg Niiiiice!

    What gauge is the stagger/fuse? Could you roll a rolling pin or something over it gently to push the parabolic back down?

    40g ... That last wireporn I posted of 40/para 46 is going inside (inception).
    I did roll it out. It was a little worse before I did that lol

    Thanks brother you’re one of the best. BTW I ordered an alien stagg from your website to support the cause. Do you think you could do it in all N80? That would be awesome if so. I’m gonna be practicing my own alien stagg tonight. Thanks so much for your constant encouragement. I really think you’re great man.:cheers:

    Yep I know I was hoping you could just let him know that those coils should be all N80, if not I’ll message him, either way, I wanted to order something that I know I couldn’t really do THAT well yet cause seeing the finished product done the right way can actually help me become a little mo betta at the build!:idea::popcorn:
