Came out to be .16 ohm. Wild flavor! But I'd like to start building some higher ohm coils. Maybe in the .5 to .6 ohm range. Perhaps someone could suggest some builds for me to try. Single or dual coil, and obviously good flavor. My wire selection is limited though. I have 26g kanthal, 26g SS316L and 36G Nichrome 80. Any suggestions?

Nitros, what are you building on? The build deck determines what would work best....

Decent sized decks...I would make a 26g x2 twisted then clapton it with the 36g, nine 3mm id wrap dual coils...should come in around .3 ohms.... if you want to push your creativity, I'd make it with 10 wraps...that will start getting you closer to the 0.4 ohms...

6 wrap fc's with both ss and kanthal as the cores. Twisted ss and kanthal as the cores of an fc 5 wrap is also nice.

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

Okay that's interesting...will the SS or Kanthal heat first? Being twisted together would add another element to the reaction of the juice, therefore the vapor.... Tongue

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I'm so happy now that I'm squonking and use single wire 24 gauge and get my 25-35 watt vape. I no longer make complicated coils. I want to get rid of my 200 watt devices, my Goon RDA, etc. I'm happy with with my origen little and narda and haladay. When I did build claptons I liked a core of NiChrome and Kanthal.

I believe the SS would heat first, should be interesting.

Thanks everyone, I have a few ideas now for my next builds. Good

Does this mean that Michael is going to have to design you a squonker signature now and no more coil master? Tongue

A Squonker Signature alongside the Coilmaster would be cool. It would show a man of talent and a man of good taste[Image: smile.gif].
