I also space my coils, but no luck. Meanwhile i've readed that i need to clean the wire with some alcoholic tissue. Well see.

I dislike all the steel wires. I get an underlying metal tang with juices that otherwise taste excellent with Kanthal.
Titanium wire is the same for me until i have vaped a tank of juice through it. I'm too tight to be wasting liquid so TC is out for me. :(
Not sure about cleaning the wire, i'll give that a go but if a dry burn wont shift the taste then i doubt cleaning the wire will work.
More sense than money.....

Metallic taste?



Wont use Chinese wire. So far it has all created that metallic taste for me.
Even kanthal.

Have recently purchased a 'brand name" 27gauge from here but remains to be seen, upon delivery if its the same.
"Authentic" does not mean it is free of this taste.

Have found success with one brand only. An american brand. Costs about $9 for a roll by 30.

Some here like to suggest that because it is made by Temco and sells for 90% less on ebay, I must be crazy for its the same wire.
No its not!

This one, so far has been 100% perfect in all gauges though i use mainly 26g.



SS wires I have purchased from American made companies and so far, none of that metallic taste shows up.

i use UD 316L and don't get any metallic taste. it's all i've used for the past 2 months or so. it's my new favorite by far. flavor is bangin and works awesome in TC mode. love it. not sure if it matters, but my UD roll is neon green in color.
