    So I had my 26g ready to twist and figured "Why Not?" and made a fused Clapton instead. Then wrapped it in the ribbon. Vapes pretty good, but ramp up is on the slow side.

    2x26K/36N, 0.8 ribbon 0.22Ω

    Getting better at aliens, I should've started with 36g. 28k/38n80 2.5mm I'd.
    Am I coiling them too tight though? The closest one was done with a vice and the one further away was done by hand but they both came out kind of deformed, the wire was perfectly flat. [​IMG]
    I'll have to figure out where to mount them as all my rdas have builds

    That's a beauty man. I've never worked with ss (I'm happy with ti) What's the resistance like on that thing and how hard is ss to work with?

    I hated trying to work with ribbon wire. I just couldn't get it right. Now it's getting easier, finally, with a little practice.

    Quite surprised by the performance, i assumed they would vape the same as normal round wire. Flavor isn't quite alien coil status, but certainly much better than plain 22G. Almost vapes like ribbon wire, but with much more depth of flavor. Very happy with this build :p

    Clapton wrapped in ribbon single coil 3.5 diameter .36 ohm for my Noisy Cricket. I know. It is low for a series mod but I'm extremely careful constantly checking temp and batteries. And holy shit - what a vape. That is the new compvape double vision velocity style deck, btw. The post holes are ginormous. The juice well is 6mm.

    Thank you!! Always appreciate it! I started with 120, i spun that until it was almost flat. I used a set of those little square sandpaper pads going all the way up to 12,000, which feels like leather haha. I don't know the exact grit counts, but there was 7 pads total, ending at 12,000. I spun the coils on the drill and just held the sandpaper against em, and then dropped em in the ultrasonic cleaner for a few cycles. Took about 30 mins for the pair. Its a very difficult vape to describe, and a fun process!

    they put it on a roll so I dont think it will be very good I buy their kanthal wire since they are only about 20 mi from my house so I get my orders super quick but like I said they roll the clapton wire up on a roll I dont think it will be very good in the end IMO cause if you look at the pictures of the wire the claptoned wire gets all spaced out doesnt look very good to me

    30//40G Aliens in the dotmod Petri v1.5. A BIGGGGG thanks to Kent Hill (@twistedmesses) for sending this out to me. He really is one of the nicest folks in the vape world. I just want everyone to know that when you buy his stuff, your money is going to a fantastic human being. That being said....rockin' these lil' fuckers on the Noisy Cricket. Kanthal cores, dual 8 wraps clocks in at .47Ω......deliciousness. Wicked up with the new Native Wicks Platinum Blend. I have been LOVING this cotton. The cotton lasts longer than my coils do, it's insane. Cheers!

    I echo the sentiment about Kent. Truly a genuinely nice guy. I just bought the Twisted Messes 150 watt box mod (which is vey nice imp), the black and silver TM rda, some tiny ass ni80 wire and (despite making my own advanced coils just for kicks and comparison) I got a few coils.

    He tossed in a great TM hoodie and gave me a great bulk purchase price and got it all to me safe and sound in 2 days!!!

    I wish all the Vape folks I meet were as eager to help and teach and inspire as he is. Thanks Kent

    Okay, so I got a new phone with a pretty decent camera in it, so this is gonna be a little bit pic heavy. :D

    Also, I figured since I got the Reuleaux RX200, why not go low? This little sucker (dual build) came in right at 0.10Ω! I had to pulse it on the Tesla Invader II (parallel mod) to get it up there. It started off at 0.08Ω

    It's just a framed staple coil build, but I'm really happy with the way it came out. Incredibly awesome flavor, and and clouds that would make my mama proud...

    6x0.5K ribbon, 2x26K frames, 38N outer. 3mm ID, 0.10Ω. Vaping it at 145 watts.

    Another day of wire not playing nice with me, i played with the ribbon for 2 hours setting everything up, its still not perfect. Alien wrap is getting easier though, actual wrapping took 10 mins lol

    I finally got around to throwing a build into the Fishbone. 2x28N/40N fused Claptons. Came in at 0.14Ω Great flavor, and cumulus type clouds.
    Once again, kinda pic heavy, just cuz I like this new camera phone. :D
