RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Here is my theory and I may have stated this before on this thread, I can't remember. Kanthal wire the way we as vapers are using it is safe. It's safe, works well and is time tested. Why fix something that isn't broken? I don't see any benefit to using a different wire. No taste difference, no cloud difference. There is nothing that you cannot achieve by using Kanthal so why bother? Let's say that the other wires last 10X longer (just for an argument) What are you saving $2 over the span of months? I don't understand the entire thing, it's not worth the mind fuck.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Supposedly temperature control gives a more consistent vape, but honestly I just don't see it. I get a consistent vape when I use kanthal because I've built hundreds, if not thousands, of coils and so if I want them to be exactly the same, you can be damn sure they're gonna be exactly the same every time. So consistency isn't an issue for me, and I like to control exactly how much power is going to my atty at any given time. To me, variable wattage is the end-all for my vaping, I don't get the temperature control thing. I'm sure some people swear by it, they say it's the best vape, maybe it's cooler or warmer or whatever, but for me, just give me a roll of kanthal, some rayon wick and a variable wattage box mod and I'm happy.

I have to show you this. I saw it on line and had to get it. It is cool looking but it's what you cannot see that is very cool. Inside is a tiny three bladed propeller. When you inhale it spins like a turbine. It actually whistles like a turbine. Can't wait to try it.

What's the name of that one? I remember the first RDA with a fan, I think it was called the Turbo, and it looked awesome but I haven't gotten one. I just love the idea of vaping a kazoo.

Kazoo!! That is the word I was looking for. It does sound like a Kazoo. Here ia what I don't like about it. There is no air adjustment and there is too much airflow. I like a little resistance when I inhale. But wow, the clouds are unbelievable. I will get the name for you.

Couple of recent builds.

Flattened 18awg.  Ice cream cone coil. Think it was a .15
