So I guess I will ask the stupid question, other than looking really cool, why would I spend 30 minutes (after hours and hours of practice) and build a complicated coil when a super simple coil as you described is a great vape (other than the hobby and creative side of it of course)??????

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
the more complex builds realy help to hone your skills . free handing a clapton coil was a bi-ach , but it was fun . uggly bugga but not a bad vape.

Trying new things means your vaping won't stagnate.

Really depends how you want to vape, I want thee biggest cloud while still enjoying all the flavour. To my tastes a 'normal' coil never gave me that where some really complex builds do Smile

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Who wants to see the shittiest coil I've ever made?

[Image: IMG_20161117_205802_zpsl7y95wto.jpg]

JohnnyMac dared us to build a Genesis. So I tried. This is 30 or 32 ga, I'm really not sure, wrapped as well as I could directly around the wick. Because it's a bitch to try to feed silica wick into a coil made from that thin of wire. 

Vape-wise... meh. Not terrible. Not the best ever either. I'm vaping MTL at around 8W, the coil is 1.2 ohms, and it still gets dry hits because it's terribly wicked (past tense of "wick," not "evil"). 

I didn't have any SS mesh to do a proper genny build, so this is the best I got. Seriously, I think this is the worst coil I've ever built, but unbelievably it's actually not a bad vape. I think that's mostly due to the fact that gennies are great flavor tanks so the small chamber kind of evens out the bad build.

Looks like a museum piece...... Smile 8W......wow, was that the recommended and/or practice of the time? I know I had read somewhere about wrapping around the wicked but thought that was with >32g wire and it would be easier...... how things have changed.....
