Yep I stick with SS and Kanthal, my favorite is SS 317L. Wrapping my own fused Clapton with 28x2 371L and 32 304 wrapper. I can't seem to find any gauge smaller than 32 in 304 and 28 with 316 or 317. So the deck I'm building for determines if I'm using SS or Kanthal. Best source of SS wire I've found is from Unkamen supply on Esty, very clean and quality SS wire. I think I last paid $10 for 40ft of 317L 28 gauge. I also tried the 430 SS (nickel free), jury is still out on that so far (I'm still trying it out). What I like about SS is that the flavor is cleaner and more crisp, it does have a little bit of a break in period though. Which as suggested in earlier post that torching the coils helps allot with that. I always torch my wire and coils prior though, serves both to anneal the wire to shape them just right.
