    Who the hell told you that? o_O
    Nichrome is all I use now, and I was using.gplat and royal...
    Gplats good, but fucking expensive and I refuse to pay that...
    Royals also very good but melts very easily.

    Nichromes the best I've come across

    Gplat turned out to be overpriced fucking welding wire rebranded though.

    From the depths of my seriously fucked up braincell,the welding wire was 317 grade welding wire so if this is wrong,blame the meds.

    I'm still in two minds about that...
    As the report said "a type of 317l"... Not exactly 317l...
    Probably is though.

    Ive heard it from multiple people.. But then again none of them are as into this as you are so I'll trust your judgment haha nichrome it is. So .6mm around a 2mm drill bit parallel 5 wrap??

    Im running a plume veil if that changes anything. >.>

    Bang for buck, Nichromes the best by far. Not going back to kanthal now.
    And yep, give it a try, if too warm, add a wrap :)

    Tiger wire is easy to build. Like mentioned some kanthal and ribbon.

    Just do it slow.

    If you buy the omega stuff you get a card for resistance depending on coil size and wraps.

    Mine was only 0.02 ohms out. A friend did a comparison between mine and omega stuff and could see much difference. My point, make your own.

    I found parallel coils the bomb for cloud chasing.
