    really?!?... that's a great mesh build considering it is inside the size of a 1c coin.

    OK
    a tiny elling

    Aside from the fun, that had to take some time to right
    • looks at some mesh
    • looks at my blow torch
    • looks a Kayfun's user manual

    I call this one the 'Scorpion' it sat in a Veritas. Double twisted 28G split on one end to both the negative screws. Had the cotton wrapped around the outside and dropping into the well, but it didnt wick so well, turned out more of a looker than anything else

    My lpg clone arrived today for a butcher job I've got lined up. So I like it and thought I'd give it a go first.
    Origen v2, 28g, 0.7 ohm single coil, koga Japanese cotton which I'm growing to like.
    So tiny

    Thought it was time to give Ti a go.........

    ...........a bit of a shock to the system coming from Ni, soft and bendy, to Ti, hard and rigid!

    Nice :)
    However that is not true Alien clapton wire, it is a Fused clapton or perhaps Stapled Clapton ;)

    Here is what real Alien wire looks like & how to make it:


    So how are you finding the Merlin to use?
    It looks to me to be a really good tank & easy to build on.

    Your probably right noe,its pre made made from fasttech they called it alien but looks not quite right as you pointed out, might give making this stuff and others from scratch in a few months when i do a big order from fasttech again im finding it grate fun just rapping and tinking with them im sure will be even more so when i start doing it from scratch, its a grate tank i have to say verry impressed grate to build on so simple not like my kay fun and can put small 1.2 ohm up to 0.2

    Making fancy coils can be fun, but in my experience it is not worth the time.
    Its prob not a bad thing you can buy them pre-made now :)

    Definitely a good thing that fancy coils can be bought pre-made now & their price point is very reasonable in most cases. For the price of 1 replaceable clearo coil head maybe 2, you can usually pick up a pack of 10 fancy RBA coils.
    I have several packs of various fancy coils, including a pack that claims to be "aliens" but which I know aren't real aliens, not that that bothers me too much they are still very good coils.
    Since these have been coming onto the market, I have found myself winding fewer & fewer coils, however I do still tinker with the pre-made coils, since most come with longer than needed leg lengths & by utilizing that extra wire I can increase the ohms with an extra wrap. The only problem with adding a wrap is longer ramp up times, which the build I put into the moonshot taught me, the ramp up was around 2 seconds, far too long, I still need to go back & fix that to make it better by removing a wrap on each coil.

    Not enough are available in nichrome. Kanthal and ss kill my throat.

    I generally just use 26awg microcoils anyway. But have a series mech coming, and sometimes rock simple claptons on parallel.

    Nichrome pre-coiled wire is cheap as chips, mainly because most vapers don't like it as much as Kanthal or SS.

    Standard:

    Same pack in Kanthal would cost 3 times the price.

    There's a few more options but you are right, Kanthal is the most popular wire type & thus has the most different styles of coils, SS coils are likewise fairly limited for choice but they do seem to have a few more than Nichrome.
    I don't find a great deal of difference in flavor production between clapton & fused clapton in kanthal, the other styles are IMO mainly for looks & you don't see a coil when you have the tank/RDA set up usually.
    Proper alien claptons may produce a bit more flavor, though I haven't tried any to know.
    From my perspective it's about getting the ohm range that I want from the various coils & the legs on the Nichrome coils I linked above are long enough that you could wind another wrap or two to increase the ohms if you wanted to.
