    Rookie error...

    I'm such an RTA noob!

    I worked out why I was having so many issues wrapping coils, in consultation with a mate. Turns out, what I ordered was ribbon wire when I thought I was ordering 26g kanthal...

    That shit is HARD to build with!

    Not to worry, YouTube would be your friend I suspect. On a positive note, you may build the most splendiferous of coils, that completely turn your vaping experience upside down

    Flat wire isn't terrible to vape with, you just need to wrap it on a drillbit or similar, some vapers prefer it to round wire.

    Ribbon is great for spaced coils, don't even try to do a contact coil with it.
    When wrapped around a drill bit, (or similar), it naturally wants to space the wraps.
