Cancelled. Will just get another roll off SKU 2553200, That is probably my favorite & most used wire to build with. I bought a 32x2+Ribbon variant from GB on sale, (like$1.20) expecting it to perform the same but its so thin and springy that its nearly unuseable, A pain to work with. Even when I got the coils perfect they didnt perfom aswell as SKU 2553200. Now this 'Alien' version being 34ga i expect worse results.

Thanks for the tip, I threw some in the cart to give it a shot. At $2 why the hell not?

Joke's on you, this isn't actually a raffle.

OMG 34ga ...never bought this thin wires...
Im struggeling with my 28ga 316L wires... Haha
No, i like it when im able to touch my coils without destroying them immediately.

I have a lot 26ga made of 316L, Kanthal A1 and Ni200...also 24ga 316L and 22ga A1.
My New Velocity RTA got an 22ga A1 build, and it was an dream for me to make it. ;-)
But! ! ! Thats just possible with an really really big build deck!

If someone does not know, but alien build goes three (THREE, Carl) parallel wires in core and wrapped by outter clapton wire made over on the same diameter as one of core wires and stretched in three times for be able fit on these three core wires. That give this curve look and awesome taste.

What is on sell here? Actually something, like Stapple coil, but with only one core ribbon :)))))

Slightly surprised that (actual) alienwire is taking quite so long to arrive here. :/

Pictures were updated recently, you'll get the wire on the picture if you order this (34 g, very very thin wire).

Yes. For coiling, for the outer portion of an Clapton wire, such thin wires probably be good to use!?
I made my clapton with 30ga, but i think "more thin/more easy to do" right!?

picture is tiger, one ribbon one round strand. they call all twisted wires twisted...wether dual, quad, triple, flat. clapton style they call "coiled wire" at least on here. I've seen plenty of youde spools that have correct names but here it's 50/50

not for nothing, but alot of people name certain types of wires different things. tiger traditionalally, as well.as clapton, should have a twisted coil core. once it became widespread and.2$ spools came around, they went cheapest.as.possible, and it achieves damn near similar results. also you can build.to make it however you like it. because the 3rd wire isn't read as.resistance. the dual core heats up, which in turn heats up.the outer wire. the single core clapton and Tiger make the ohms much different, and heat up faster than they would.with a dual.core. shit I bought hive wire, 5 rolled coils to.try, forgot the brand name.but US based, and got.into a 10 min argument over a guy who.twit's his own. forgot what he called it, chain link or reverse twisted I believe he said. yet it was 4 wires, twisted to look like small be hives almost. cool looking stuff, just got too thick a gauge. intense spitback. food for thought. yall can go back and forth on how something "is really built", but it makes no difference to anybody. cal it goddamn cheetah wire, who the hell cares. it's the performance that matters. and the picture will...well SHOULD give you a good idea of what the wire is, an how it'd built. AND KEEP IN MIND YOUR SHOPPING IN CHINA FOR PRE TWISTED WIRES. THEY WILL CUT CORNERS AND MAKE IT AS CHEAP AS POSSIBLE, USING KNOWN WIRE STYLE NAMES TO SELL IT SO EASILY. if you want quality, first, don't buy chinese.kanthal. UD wire doesn't last nearly as long as the wire I buy down the street. buy us made kanthal twisted by a us company that knows what they are building. or do it yourself! if price, or skill are issues, that's why you are here, buying this. shut up, deal with the way they do business and market things, and move the fuck on.
