    You mean filling it up with juice without it leaking? If so built it like you normally would and take out the screw on the fill hole. Fill it up and put screw back in. Your good to go. Don't fill from the top if your new to this. It be easier through the bottom. Good luck.

    Timmy, practice makes perfect . Even if it doesn't" look just like the picture" in a Russian or Kayfun the good thing about them is it will vape ok.
    When I first got mine I was always trying new coils .

    That's right. When I first began building coils they looked like a four year old made them. That was when I'd try to wrap wire around silica for a gennie. Terrible. It was when I decided to actually copy what was being taught in the vids that I started making decent builds

    I've been using the dual coil shotgun. It's fantastic.

    Sounds to me like it's not wicking the juice.

    make sure the cotton is very wet. When you put it together take some primer puffs (no power). The cotton should be able to move inside the coil a little , it will puff up when wet . To much cotton will strangle it . good luck.

    All other methods of wicking a standard micro coil are inferior to this one. Do as he says, you will not have any issues. Go look at him showing chain vaping blowing dripper sized clouds without any dry hits or leaking. I have vaped off the Kayfun in this vid, and it is absolutely heaven.

    I've had the same coil in my favourite kf for weeks. It might be even months. Idk I don't keep up with it but I dry burn it each week and wash it under the tap. It really does get gunky with the juice I use. It's a very satisfying experience to see it go like new.

    Yeah when you have 100' don't be stingy when learning to coil give yourself an extra 1" or 2" to make sure. Like anything practice makes perfect. Keep at it and I think you will love your Russian 91% like I love my Kayfuns. Happy Vaping All.
