    Fair enough mate I've never really bothered with spaced builds but I've got a few rdas that need building when the kids are in bed think I'll give it a go

    I’ve not made a tight coil for more than a year probably, I’ve always found spaced ones better and easier. Maybe I’ll try building a tight one at some point.

    Can't say I see much difference if I'm honest.

    I found spaced seemed to work better but it might have been that I was making newbie mistakes. The main thing for me is they are much easier and less hassle. It could also be to do with the kind of tanks I use (single coil mtl ers with thin wire).

    I do occasionally space mine, but generally if I need a slightly wider coil to match an airflow (cos I made it too narrow). I don't get too complicated with coils to be honest.

    So the main thing is that they burn evenly, whether they're spaced or not?

    Yeah - a coil should glow from the centre outwards. If it’s a dual coil then they should both glow evenly, and at about the same time (which they should if you’ve used the same length of wire for each).
