Weird taste anyone???
Getting a weird taste out of it comparing to Mesh Company Kanthal...

Hard to describe... just a bit sharp after-taste and not as smooth as the Kathal I've got from the Mesh Company...

Did you torch or dry burn the coils/wire before you juiced them up?

I torche them. But it doesn't make the other one taste anything like it...

I'm not sure... maybe it's the setup (cotton microcoil, 7-8 wraps over 2mm, c.a. 1.1ohm, I fire it around 13.5W).

I got metallic taste with this one: SKU 2173609 as well as other wire I got off ebay. I think it's to do with fine dust of metal particles that's on some of these wires. You can see stain on tissue paper if you wipe them. I prefer to avoid torching or dry burning and it won't fix the problem anyway; maybe cleaning with solvents (acetone, alcohol) could help.

Over-torching/dry-burning in fact can be the cause of bad taste; but more so with nichrome and nickel than kanthal.

Edited on 7/10/2015 at 5:38 PM. Reason:
V = dU/dq | I = dq/dt | P = dU/dt = V·I | V = I·R

Totally understand but again I torch it the same way I always have been yet this wire gives me a sharp taste.

Been using it for 5 days now and tried a number of different builds - no joy. Will not be ordering this again.

Will stick with Mesh Company instead.

Hit and miss with Fasttech in this case I guess, but this cannnot be the genuine Kanthal.

Then stop using it. Personally I prefer everything I've bought here oiver mesh and wire (not least because FT send out the gauge you think you've bought), but if you're sensing something you don't like, use something different.
