Super easy to wick coils. Can wick 3 or 4 coils per strand.
CONS
The aglets (hard end) is a tight fit while the cotton itself could be a touch thicker.
I bought 10 packs of this because it's the cheapest agleted cotton I've seen and I'm tired of cutting, peeling and rolling muji pads. If you get the bulk discount by buying 5 or more bags, it makes these cost less than 8 cents each. So far I've gone through a little over a pack of this cotton and I like it. It's good quality cotton as far as having less break-in/ flavor than muji. The threads are fairly long so you can wick 3 or 4 coils per strand in a typical atty, 2 coils per strand in a atty with high coils like The Drop or Dead Rabbit. Just pull it most of the way through the coil, tuck the tail end into the juice well, then cut the other side to the length you need leaving as everything you don't need still attached to the agleted end so you can use it on another coil or two. My only complaints are that the aglets aren't all exactly the same size and some have been a little tough getting them through 3mm coils that are wound really tight. They can't be further shrunk with heat because mine seem to be made out of some sort of paper and not heat shrink like a battery wrap. Also the cotton is just a tad thinner than my ideal. They are snug in a 3mm ID coil, but I generally wick pretty damn tight. I do really like them though and they like a charm and cut my wicking time by like 70%. I'll definitely buy more when I run low unless the are similar products that have come down in price to try out. For the price though these are hard to beat and the cheapest on the market.

Cheap reasonable quality
CONS
Thick enough that they prevent the 510 pin from connecting on most of my atomizers
These are what you'd expect. 22mm POM disks with a hole in the center for your 510 connector to fit through. The problem is that they are a little too thick and most of my atomizers can't make a proper connection with the mod while trying to use them. This is easily remedied by scrubbing one side on some sand paper or a finger nail file to sand off about .25mm and make them a little thinner. Only takes a minute. They should make these thinner though as I can't imagine many attys having a long enough 510 connector for these to work out of the box.

PROS
Excellent build quality. Excellent flavor.
CONS
Covered in machine oil. Soft clamps.
Excellent single coil flavor atty. Get the Hadeon cap for it also sold here https://m.fasttech.com/p/9642745. Much smoother airflow at the cost of lower air holes so you have to be more careful with squonking or dripping, but it's worth it and only like 4 bucks. Maybe get some spare clamps too because they can bend with thick wire builds if you tighten them a lot. 4 wraps is the space limit with tri-core 26ga builds or wider. Quad-core 26ga builds will only fit 3 full wraps. Great flavor atty but scrub it with dish soap 3 or 4 times first to get the oil out. This atty + Hadeon cap + spare clamps just in case for around $16 bucks. Great bargain imo.

Long enough to get a lot of leverage. They don't bend out of shape even when tugging wire with pliers.
CONS
No size markings. Come a little dirty. Could use beveled ends.
These are the best coiling rods I have found. They are not soft SS like the step jigs. They are great for installing coils because they balance if the coil is in the center. No markings on them so you have to pretty much lay them all out together to make sure you know what diameter rod you're picking. They also need washed with soap and water before use. I ordered 2 more sets. Highly recommended.

Pretty good pre-built coils. Price is reasonable.
CONS
Mislabeled by the manufacturer. These are run of the mill fused claptons. They are not stagger fused at all.
These are pretty decent quality with no major flaws in the construction. Larger gage cores with small gage fusing wire makes these pretty efficient and fast for a fused clapton. Pretty good for mech mods. But be aware that these are not Staggered Fused Claptons. Just regular run of the mill duel 24awg cores with 38awg wrap.
