RE: Eleaf GS-Tank inconsistent hits
Meh, 60/40 should be OK; up in the 70/30 area is where wicking issues usually begin for smaller coils. Sounds like a starter kit is being asked to do more than it was designed for because you want more, which is totally cool. What direction do you want to head? You thinking sub-ohm, DL, are you thinking MTL, what kind of device (keeping in mind that DIY coils are actually really easy and you seem like a smart chap, it would likely come very easy to you).

Quick example from my world. I DIY my coils and have an atomizer that is designed for DIY exclusively. It is the Iron Maiden RDTA. Not a beginner atty but really, not too bad. I use SS316 wire (stainless steel), which can be used in power or TC mode, I use TC. I wicked it last Thursday, and it is still going strong. When it comes time for cleaning, all I need to do is heat the coils, blow off the dust, and put in more cotton. My DIY coils themselves will last who knows how long, maybe a few months? My cotton is already a week tomorrow and fine. It's not a lot of time needed to re-wick, especially if I get a week plus out of one wicking of cotton. And of course, wire and cotton are cheap. I can have enough cotton and wire for a year for the cost of one or two packs of disposable coils. Aside from being simple,it's a huge budget saver. May be worth considering.

It took me months to get into my own coil building. I was hesitant because I thought it too daunting, or too much hassle. Man, I wish I would have allayed those feelings long before I finally did. It may take a few tries and a few sentence enhancers, but it really is simple once it clicks. Like riding a bike.

RE: Eleaf GS-Tank inconsistent hits
I am heading quickly to DTL for sure, cloud chaser, maybe not but definitely enjoy it more (remember this is soley based on my current mod and tank). I'll be honest, I do enjoy clouds though Tongue

For now since $$ is tight, I would like to keep the mod and upgrade the tank as I feel the tank is the weak point thus far. I know it's on the weak side (the mod) but I am still a newb and like to take my time step wise even though the itch for something better calls. The wallet dictates all.

Right now considering either the uwell crown or triton 2 (can be DTL or MTL which is nice). More leaning triton 2 as coils are everywhere near me for this tank and there are many coil options, not sure about the crown coils yet until I check some shops this weekend.

I can see DIY coils down the line but don't think right now I am ready for it. Just want to enjoy vaping until my Macgyver itch kicks in lol. And it will as I am a tinkerer but I take my time getting into it. The savings aspect of course is a major plus though.

Fatboy: ROFL, not shiny-itis per say but function-itis right now.

Funny as I am the import car scene and have been for some time. When a newb comes along (in one the clubs/forums) you know what we all say, the mod itch will get ya (I am not referring to vape mods but car mods otherwise known as "modifications") and you have to pay to play.

I now see same applies to vaping hahahaha.

Thankfully my heavy mod days are over as life makes you focus on needs over wants. And Hurricane Sandy ate my subaru with tons of mods, ugh. All that money down the toilet.

Crown coils are everywhere, if they could be falling out of trees they would be.

RE: Eleaf GS-Tank inconsistent hits
TW, I did a write-up on my build deck on the TFV8 - went 10 days before rewicking, could have easily gone 2 weeks - 3 cents of cotton and I would have easily gone another 2 weeks - coils came with the tank (one set installed) - easily the absolute best value and versatility of building or using store coils...I love my AVOCADO 24s. After initial purchase cost, aside from juice, really an inexpensive process...

kero, disregard what I said previously - save your pennies and go with an RDTA - knowing you're a car guy, wrapping a few coils will be easy - hell, purchasing prebuilt coils are cheap and a set can last months....if strapped PM me, I don't make anything fancy but can and will happily make and send you a 6 month supply.

RE: Eleaf GS-Tank inconsistent hits
Torrey: I'll check this weekend.

Fatboy: I am going to research it for sure, sounds interesting to say the least, and thank you very much for the offer on making and sending me some, if and when that times comes, I will PM you for sure so we can discuss further Smile. This could be step after simply replacing my current tank. I know it seems like it should be the very next step but will take everything one stage at a time. Please remember I am also helping along 2 other co workers so I have to keep them in mind to make sure everyone stays on the straight and narrow path of not going back to analogs. Hope that makes sense.

RE: Eleaf GS-Tank inconsistent hits
That makes a lot of sense, kero. It sounds like you'd love building your own coils, it's a ton of fun (as you might be able to tell from my signature pic lol), and it's actually pretty simple like the guys are saying, but for the sake of helping out your co-workers it's probably best to upgrade your tank to something more powerful that isn't rebuildable so you can make informed recommendations if anyone else wants to upgrade later. When you do upgrade to a rebuildable tank, we can definitely help. For what it's worth, I love my Limitless Plus. PaulS has a great thread recommending/reviewing almost all of the best and newest rebuildable tanks, so you should check that out too.

RE: Eleaf GS-Tank inconsistent hits
I have heard nothing but good things about the Limitless Plus, so if that is the RDTA you eventually choose, I am certain you won't be disappointed. I personally love all the massive real estate available on the ridiculous 30mm deck plus the 8.5ml capacity of that beastly Iron Maiden, but I'm also sure I would like the Limitless Plus just fine too. I'm just kind of spoiled for the size and imposing nature of this thing. It tells the world YOU VAPE.

Michael, you really need to get the IM. Man, on top of that DNA, awesome...

RE: Eleaf GS-Tank inconsistent hits
Michael: Yep, I know I will be in good hands when the time comes. It's good going up the laddder as it gives knowledge to pass to others. I got a 4th coworker vaping on a V2 Pro 3 that a friend had that stopped using to move up to a mod. He is now only smoking a few stinkers a day vs a pack and hope to get him off completely. Yet another one on their way to living a better life Smile

Yeah, I'd like to say I modded the t!ts off my rx7, but funds stopped me going the whole hog.. I did tweak just about every factory component though Big Grin . 

Same thing with vaping, can't resist making the most of it.. except the cost is much more manageable so i don't resist Mosking . I was building coils in under a month of vaping and I've not looked back.
