    He very well may have done actually? But all we can do is offer our experiences? I have been using one long before they came to the market and have NEVER had a moments trouble with it, but obviously there may be issues that I am unaware of?

    Yeah it wasn’t the evl whistling at all but the position of the afc hole in relation to the vaponaute which caused it to whistle. Didn’t realise at the time and couldn’t figure it out. Swapped mods and was all good.

    Sounds as though we have our coils in about the same place Ollie.

    Re wicking? I use remarkably little. I am also using 50/50 liquids at the moment and haven't encountered any issues. My wick tails are "JUST" sitting on the deck, no more than that.

    Interesting, they both look slightly higher than I've gone. Are those both 3mm id's, chaps? I'll give it a full re-build tonight and see how I get on. It does seem that the higher the coil, the less whistle I'm getting...

    Mine is a 2.5mm and I know my pic won't have been too clear all gunked up but I can see just under half the coil above the post screw

    Not getting any whistling on a clone either...

    Coil looks a similar height and wicking also similar to @Rob 's. Wonder if it's drip tip related?

    EDIT: Also a 2.5mm ID coil.

    I bought it from the classies but it's a YFTK one. For me it's fine but I suspect it'd piss some people off with the AFC being largely a pita to move. I still need to experiment with the mesh Rob kindly sent me to try and tighten the draw up a bit for my taste. All in all, very nice atty and if I could afford an authentic right now, I'd grab one, maybe in October for my birthday if they're still available then.
