    Nah... I have two. :D

    I haven't played enough with them yet to be able to tell you my go to build because I still haven't worn out that huge 7-core alien coil that's 28g/38g Ni80 at .18 ohms and IMO that vapes really neat in this RDA on my Vapergate The 99 with dual iJoy 26650s so I love this coil enough to not want to take it out to try a different build, but I don't use this kind of setup for an all day vape, and, I've been considering to get some A123 ANR26650M1-B batteries for this mod so that also is part of the reason why I have been waiting to start using my 2nd 30mm Deathtrap, as these batteries are LiFePO4 chemistry type so they run at a much lower voltage than what I'm used to building for... I have already bought way more batteries than I can muster, but I still haven't found the energy to start building more frequently.

    Thank you! I was a little sad when the corrugated ribbon slid. I prepped it to mirror itself. But as I was tightening it up and gluing it they slid a bit. :(

    That one was tough! The stretch and the grip on the decore have to be just right!

    A few, unedited and reduced quality, shots of the Corrugated build after install. It wouldn't let me upload them at full res :(
    Had to crimp the leads to get it in the Pulse.
    And I've seen a couple of people asking about cell phone photos. I am the farthest thing from a photographer. But, here's my 2 cents ...
    I have an LG X-Charge (cheap ass phone). I use an $8 macro lens I bought at Aldi's. The camera app i use is called "Open Camera", free on google play. I do some slight editing, using picsart, for Instagram ... but nothing major. Just a little res enhancement and a little saturation.
    The biggest things you can do to improve your picture quality
    -Find a camera app that lets you manual focus.
    -Get a bright white led light and/or use natural sunlight, and defuse it with a sheet of printer paper.

    Thank you!!
    Doesn't spit at all. It's .17 ohms and I'm burning it at 115w with high curve, about 4.7v, on the starting end. It's a little lackluster in flavor, but that's mainly due to the RDA it's in. All of my wider projects have to go in the Pulse 24 since it has a decent amount of room between the lead holes. And the pulse doesn't give great direct air to a single coil. But all in all it's a decent vape :D

    The curve flattens out at about 4.5v. But I only take 1-1.5 second draws on it. So I don't even hit the 4.5 lol. And there's a lot more wire in this thing than it looks like. Was trying it at 85 to start with. But the ramp was so long it never really got going that way. Also, need the high wattage because of the airflow. Have to suck hard to get the coils hit with good air, to produce better flavor, because of the rda it's in.

    Nice. I have the same issue with my pulse 24, bad airflow for single. I made a like 6mm id coil for mine the other day to try to get better flavor, but then the top of the coil gets kinda close to the top and spits at my tongue.

    Ok so the Stitched Mohawk was very hot in the Recurve RSA. So I changed it to a 6 wrap SS316L Alien. [​IMG]

    This almost always how I color. Except, on average, I do it at 20w.

    Really excellent corrugation! Absolutely beautiful builds! My corrugation experience is limited to a couple of experimental builds. I'm not sure how corrugation changes the qualities of ones vape vs say a fralien or a SSFC for example. How do you find your corrugated builds vape?

    Really great photo. I haven't had the time I would like to build lately. I've been pushing for a particular build but I've got my head wrapped around so many other things it's tough to find the time I would like. I really do respect how clean and perfect your work looks!:vino:

    Great binding with high gauge wire as always! 40g is pretty much my upper limit. Occasionally I might stitch with 46g, I know that sounds weird, but if you try it, it actually comes out looking kinda cool. Great job making those clean staple variations!:cheers:

    Why thank you very much!! The vape is very similar to it's non corrugated counterpart. Except it's quite a bit cooler and tends to wick a bit better giving more life out of your cotton. At least that's my experience. But you have to be careful when building because a corrugated will, obviously, ALWAYS be quite a bit wider and you can't fit as many wraps. So, plan accordingly.

    I'm still waiting on my wire I ordered from eBay. I think the seller is drop shipping from China.
    I was hoping to spend my weekend making coils!
    I have been busy making a work area, which I like to call my studio lol
