    28 Awg Kanthal

    So what's the deal with 28 awg? Seems like everybody is using it these days. Is it better for twisted coils? Fill me in please peoples.

    ck, you'd use 28AWG so you didn't have to twist

    So a 4 wrap coil would be under 1 ohm

    depends on the size of your wick, but yer more than likely.

    personally i find it WAY too annoying, but that's just me. I've used 30awg and that's worked well. more wraps less resistance

    9/10 wrap would be about 1.8ohm. I personally find it too hard to achieve this. Despite the fact I bought 200ft of it

    From the spec sheet I have, 28AWG is 5.27Ω per foot whereas 32AWG is 13.1Ω per foot, so roughly you'd need 2 and a bit times the number of turns to get the same resistance (using the same diameter wick of course).

    Fair enough, I like my coils around 2.4 ohm so I won't go there Cheers.

    You're better off with 30AWG or 32AWG then.

    30G on a AGA-T is great 5/6 or 6/7 wrap for around 2ohms coil lasts longer than 32G does because it is thicker wire.
    28G I have only used on the AGA(unmodded thinner wick hole) & I needed about 11 wraps to get a 2ohm coil, due to the thickness of the 28G that made it a very difficult proposition but once done, the coil lasted for about 4weeks before finally popping.
