    I would try 32,28 the thicker ie lower the number the lower the resistance and harder it is to play with

    It depends what you want to do with it what RBA you are going to use the wire on

    The thinner the wire (higher gauge), the higher the resistance. The thicker the wire (lower gauge), the lower the resistance.
    So the thinner the wire the less coils you need to wrap to achieve the same resistance.

    Im currently using 28 but next order will be for 32. Its cheap stuff, buy a few sizes and see what works best for you

    what Gage Kanthal wire

    Like it has been said for the cost just buy 32 and 28 and experiment

    I mainly is these two sizes with 2 and 3mm silica wick. I use the 28 to make micro coils and the 32 to make wrapped silica coils

    I would say 32 on that one would be easy to start out
