Clueless Rube questions
For you experienced coilers:

What does a clapton coil get you over a single wire coil? And how does a fused clapton coil differ from a regular clapton one?

i'm coiling on mesh and cable so have no empirical opinions of my own.

Heylo. it's actually pretty simple. with Clapton coils the advantage is that the coil itself can act as a wick, holding it's own liquid. so when you hit the button theres a burst of flavor and vapor. and a fused Clapton does the same thing but better. so it's not all about chasing the clouds, it has practical applications.

It takes a little longer to get to a burning temp in my experience. This allows more time in the zone of my hit. It also has much more surface area which means more juice is touching something that gets hot, getting vaporized. In all of this it isn't driving down any more ohms, so in a sense its more free flavor. Same watts but more flavor.

In that case i'll start thinking out whether i can wind it in a twist with some stainless steel cable.

edit: hm, mebbe a thick cable core with clapton wire and a thin cable wound flat around it. Going to need a mother big torch.
