+2 details
@JeezySnowman....I prob shouldve said it better lol....yes you can get pre-made Aliens but they are hand made that's why they usually got upwards of $15 for 2 coils but I very highly doubt we will see them from FT because they can't, at this time, be massed produced like all of the coils we see here. Technically ANY coils can be bought pre-made but certain ones are being made by hand.

I like the coils
neat packaging and presentation
I did not test the cotton and probably wont at all since I have over 60 boxes of muji still on storage for my customers

I did order 50x pieces and sold 20% of it within 48hours

Nice markup in your shop on the bay...
I wonder if the Toptank "non OEM" is a creative wording for clone - and sold for 29 euros.
The problem with with the above is that, from a thermodynamic perspective, a coil is not a bucket.

This is as close, as you will get to Alien Wire from China! it works great! and it takes a lot of machining to make the Alien wire and I don't think China can produce it.

Nope this SKU 3463901 is as close to alien you'll get sold here atm.
28*2/32 AWG / 0.32mm*2/0.2mm / 5m (15 feet)
Total 3 wires
Inner wire diameter: 0.32mm*0.32mm
Outer wire diameter: 0.2mm
Full diameter: 1.0mm

Actually, this is as close as you're gonna get to real Alien....it's 2-core and the wraps are spaced far apart but it's still Alien SKU 5002301

Just spent 3 weeks in Shenzhen and I visited a couple of wire makers amongst other vaping pursuits. You're underestimating their ability if you think they won't eventually crack machine made Alien wire. Machines are making claptons, fused claptons, staggered fused claptons, Tiger, semi staggereds ... and flat wires claptoned with a wavy wrap. Tight spacing is the current challenge ... but they will get there.

@scrumpox...I'm not disagreeing with you, if you read my post "but I very highly doubt we will see them from FT because they can't,at this time be massed produced" I'm sure at sometime they will come up with it but all of the other coils your mentioned is a lot easier to build and build on a mass quantity...Aliens have to be stretched out to a specific degree and the part that will be very challenging is when you hold the wrap you have to make sure you have the correct tension as to not let the wrap stretch but too little tension and it becomes mangled...also as you said the tightness of the wraps. Im sure it will get there one day but still the quality over hand build ones won't be on par
