    pre made coil/cotton combo for RBAs /coil tools

    im thinking of trying out some prewound/cotton wicked coils for RBA deck on subtanks, delta clearo's, kayfun clones etc

    any advice? worth it? where from? pi$$ easy to use with no hot spots/legs? may as well make your own / buy a coil winder?

    advice/insight on coil winders appriciated also.

    thanks,

    ps. i checked fasttech for the prewound coils, but couldnt see any. i swear i hae before tho.

    Just make your own. Cheaper and it'll be better when you get used to building.

    i find it very fiddly and frustrating making coils.

    would a coil tool help?

    cost doesnt concern me. i change coils once a week, and currently using authentic kanger coils. if i can use the pre wound coils on the rba deck it will still work out to be much much cheaper for me

    Try out kuro coilers. They're easy to use, one of my mates got a set. And yeah perfect coils every time. But yeah its not My thing I prefer to go through the process of building.

    Fasttech do sell coils already done in different sizes/ohms, they don't do any that are wicked with cotton though from what I can see the only wicked ones they do are silica I think.

    Has anyone tried these yet? Any feedback?

    I've still got quite a few Vivi Nova tanks which, I'm led to believe, are no longer made so I'm looking around to find substitute coiled wicks (my eyesight isn't the greatest for coiling, nor is the tactility in my fingers oh, the joys of ageing!). The 2.8ohms ones on Fasttech seem to fit the bill, but are they fit for purpose?

    I was also thinking this 2.8ohms 'model' could also be used on my Protank IIs. 'Til now I've been dry burning them after cleaning and I always replace the two flavour wicks with fresh ones (2 x 1mm thick silica strands). But, as with all things, there'll come a time when the coiled wicks will need replacing.

    Hell yes I just got a set of kuro concepts coil winders from house of vape and so easy, had a bit of a fiddle to see how they work then went to steam coil calculator page and did it!! I did previously watch a couple of YouTube video. And it was sooo easy!

    Your rebuilding the Vivi Nova coils? Also I thought I read the CE5/CE6 clearo coils fit Vivi Nova's and if that's the case you can still buy them at many places. Also thought of trying a coil winding jig of some sort, a lot of us with bad hands/fingers do and there's certainly no shame in it. I use jigs when I need to and a big magnifying standing lamp with my reading glasses on also so I can see the dang lil things.

    From what I have read the quality of the fasttech pre-wound coils seems fairly consistent and decent, they certainly are cheap enough. Why not just try some and see how you go, though to protect insulators I think the NR-R-NR types would maybe be a better idea. BUt yep they have pre-wound coils and/or pre-wound coils already wicked.

    Or they do replacement heads ready to just screw on and your done, not very much more and saves you all that fiddling.
