Closed coils vs spaced

I think whatever wire, closed gives much better flavour.
There are too many variables to say that definitively. The atty can also dictate where a spaced coil will work better. I personally get a better vape and flavor when spacing in most of my set ups. I also use some Aliens that vape better not spaced.

I let the coil tell me what it wants. Some coils want to be spaced and will only lay properly it they are. Others naturally touch when wound on the jig. Maybe it is just my winding inconsistency but ime a coil that lays nicely spaced is very difficult for me to make a closed coil.

Probably more my lack of experience manipulating the coil to remain together. But I know you know what I mean. Some coils when wound just naturally space themselves so perfectly that making them touch almost seem counter productive. Like a more perfectly spaced coil would not happen on purpose. I feel kind of goofy with my post. Peace and love to all.

I find the difference minimal a lot of the time. I will do either depending on the deck I am working on. If it has a lot of distance between post holes, it is going to be spaced. If room is tight, it will be a contact coil. If either will fit the deck properly, I go with a spaced coil since they are a lot easier to get firing evenly since I don't have to poke and prod the coil to get hot spots out.

Alright fine, I'll say a few words. :) I'm roughly the same place as @Syythe, here. Cannot really say which I find best or better. As @Theboss points out there's too many variables. Sometimes a coil is just a coil. :)
