    Spread the wick so that it forms a channel on either side of the coil. This will reduce unnecessary turbulence and encourage the air to flow under the coil and up through the drip tip. Or not. Just how I have done it.

    Thanks Guys - my problem is getting the cotton into the coil - mine doesn't look like either of your pics - it has these annoying sticky out bits that make it hard to put the cotton in.
    I will take a photo after work tomorrow and then you will see what I mean.
    Ps, mine is a clone :cry:

    Mine is also a clone. The clamps are really fiddly.

    Omg - I am such a noob with this RDA stuff - very embarrassed to say its not the Hadaly its the Narnia! :blush:
    Going to edit my thread title now - so any advice on wicking the NARNIA would be very cool - some folks know it as the Narna but it will always be the Narnia to me :nod:

    I haven't built mine yet but for single coil there's 2 methods. Straight or angled.

    Straight:

    Angled:

    If I were to build mine, I'll go for the angled build.
    Where there no cotton that's where you have your air hole to allow air flowing through. If that makes sense. Might be airy though. I recall DogMan had a good tip on building the Narnia

    I'll have to fit a wick now to see how I do it. But my coil is angled, wicks pushed to one side, and I put air holes where red lines are, not through the posts.

    Just a minute. Will rewick and take pics

    Ok. Snip wick end at angle. That is first pic.

    Now last pic and going backwards, roll it as tight as all fuck. Feed through even to get just a tiny end popping out.

    Then use tweezers and pull through what you can. It will feed uneven and you'll need to pull a few separated strands.

    Then grab that little bit with your fingers and pull through until it is very tight. I use 26awg, unsure if thinner wire would be distorted by the force here.

    Snip just passed edge of rda and push in to one side. Drip to prime.

    Hope that helps.

    And that's how it's done! lol

    Saw one build that that they left the legs extra long to cover the empty spot on each end...

    Thanks! the angle should solve the problem - I didnt think to do that - cutting the cotton on a angle is a good idea too - Will have a go and let you know how I go.
