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.



Hey, nice to see you here again! :)

Mine has also green colored roll. I don't get it, because at first when i tried it i never feeled the metal taste or maybe not as strong as it tastes now.

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 guess you have right. I've got some 24 ga kanthal wire from an eu webshop (it doesn't have it's own name, it comes in a plastic bag with the shops own sticker on it), but i can tell it tastes much better.

edit: dear god. I've looked up on ebay for these wires, but the shipping kills it. 26.99 usd for 30 feet it's too much.

hey bud, nice to see you posting again as well! but yes, to be honest, i haven't touched my kanthal (except 1 clapton build), Ti or Ni since i received my roll of 24ga SS. what flavor profiles do you vape? mine are mostly deserty custard, cream with fruit notes and i have only experience clean flavor.

Mostly creamy strawberries, right now i vape strawberry with vanilla ice cream. If i use my non-chinese wires then all the flavor is top-notch.

I've had no trouble with this wire. I wipe it with a med prep swab before using.
nothing to see here

I have to clean my titanium spider wire with alcohol and tissues, there's a dark(I'm guessing machine oil maybe) substance that comes off. As far as tc builds, they've been hit and miss, I've had builds that chucked flavor and clouds, then I've had builds i immediately tore out because for some reason the taste was way off and was still getting dry hits, so I'm still on the fence but i haven't tried the SS yet.
