RE: TVF Coil Challenge!
Thanks. I can't believe that tomorrow will be exactly 1 month since I built my first coils. Man time flies.

Thankyou. I'm blushing over here. I'm just trying to play catch-up with all you real builders.

RE: TVF Coil Challenge!
Here's my build for the twisted. Its 2 strands consisting of 2 x 28g kanthal + ribbon loosely claptoned in 32g, twisted. All kanthal I think, a buddy gave me a few feet of ribbon a while back, I know everything else is kanthal anyways. I ended up re-wrapping it to 2mm ID (the pic was 3 mm) and 7 wraps so I could fit the build in. It was a pain to wick, like trying to wick a rose bush lol. Came out to .3 ohm after some tweaking, vaping it at 69W.

Kick ass build. That first pic is just killer. I haven't tried any ribbon yet. How do you like to work with it.

RE: TVF Coil Challenge!
Thanks guys. It was my first time using ribbon, I only had about 1.5-2 feet, not even sure what size it is lol. A guy I know from out of town who vapes gave it to me. It wasn't bad to work with. The hardest part was getting it to stay on top of the 2 pieces of 28g while I claptoned it. I held it together with a few pieces of green painters tape every inch or so and removed it as I wrapped it with the 32g. That seemed to work pretty well to hold everything together lol.

Just put a 1/8" of Clapton on it before you start the build and slide it as you go.

RE: TVF Coil Challenge!
No problem. I tried paper clips and key rings. The sliding wrap worked the best for me.
