    So I won't name the coil supplier, but I bought some Tri-Core Aliens (28/34) a while back and been running them perhaps 2 to 3 weeks.

    I usually rewick once a week. But now I'm getting what tastes like a dry hit, burnt coil type taste.

    Remove the top from my zeus tank and the wick in the coil is fully saturated. So definately not a wicking issue.

    Is it just a bad quality coil causing this?
    I've even done a full scrub down and rewicked probably 3 times over the weekend.

    Flavour was amazing for the 1st week, but feel its been degrading over time...

    I have had that too. Some coils last incredibly long but others start tasting burnt in a very short time no matter what you try.

    Do you dry burn the coils before rewick? that coil looks a bit black.

    @CTRiaan Coils are ni80

    @StompieZA Yes always dry burn them before rewicking at 20watts to check for hot spots. This wasn't a fresh rewick. But rather just to show that the wick is saturated and its not a dry hit.

    Think i'm gonna do a pit stop and change the coil after work.

    Looks like that needs to be burned a lot higher to clean or even put through a few sonic cleaning cycles.
