    So, when u guys buy pre-made coils, like the nice stapled fused claptons from like AVS or KP, do
    you space them when you put them in your RDA?

    I have never made spaced coils but I only build when I have time to tinker.

    Well since when I build a spaced coil I wrap a spaced coil or for contact I wrap it contact... I don't squeeze coils. I wrap coils under tension....

    My guess is a spaced premade coil is likely made with similar process as i use. I might consider buying pre-spaced coil though....

    But I've never bought a coil.....

    If I have room on the deck, I space them out a bit. I seem to get a more even burn that way.

    I just got my new Druga RDA and have fallen in love with it, primarily because of the way the contacts work. I don't have to fiddle with sticking the contacts into holes, and if you have good enough hand/finger strength, you don't even need any tools (other than to cut the leads shorter). And I can use thicker exotics than with my velocity decks. Wish all build decks worked like this.

    I always space. I wrap contact coils myself from a spool of premade clapton then space them out using the same technique mike vapes does in this video:

    Sweet!!! I saw Mikes review and this RDA looks really nice, with zero grub screw frustration factor...
    I was tempted to buy one, but I am hooked on the bottom (Kennedy style) air flow design. Even though
    I get INSANE flavor from my Pulse 24 (not a bottom) i am noticing the best flavor from the bottoms....

    Ok thanks.. that's pretty much what I have been doing too... When I get my Aspire Speeded, I want to keep that one in TC mode,
    and my other MOD's can stay in power mode.. I have never owned a decent MOD yet that does consistent TC...
    So I have my fingers crossed for the Aspire...
    If that also fails, means I have to spend the $$$ for a Lost Vape or Ohm Wrecker

    I love, Love, LOVE this RDA and would get a dozen more if I could. :D The more I use it, the better it gets. I'm using it as a squonker and it's fabulous. Can't find a single thing wrong with it, aside from not having more of them. lol
