    Let's just say I'm being proactive here :D
    Seeing as though we will be getting skylines in the next 2 weeks I thought it best to wind @Silver up to build his skyline as soon as it arrives.

    Lol @Christos

    I have a feeling this Skyline is not going to be competing in my "Lemo1/KF5 category" of very low power very restrictive lung. I think its going to excel at a bit more power and a tad more airflow. In which case i may need to use different wire and a slightly different formulation of my juice blend....

    Big time @Willyza !
    I am very nervous and I do feel a lot of pressure
    but there is some excitement in there too
    At the moment its a bit more nerves and pressure - but its all good

    These public holidays and other holidays really mess with my work week.
    I always commit to timelines only to realise later there are holidays in between and I have to work extra to get things done.
    I really need to start using a calendar.

    I can totally relate @Christos
    I do the same sometimes

    Now what I do is at the beginning of the year I go insert all the public holidays into my calendar so I can see what is going on. April may as well just be one big public holiday. Lol

    The company I work for is jewish owned so I get to enjoy extra holidays I.E jewish holidays.
    Just 2 weeks ago we had a 2 day work week and the same thing happened with commitments.
    October is generally considered year end because if you take like 6 or 7 days leave you get 3 weeks off! November is quiet and December everyone slacks off.

    Another week perhaps or 2 @Silver.
    I'm thinking of throwing in a 26AWG Ni80 2.5mm ID coil as the first benchmark.
    I enjoy getting a feel for an atty with the builds I'm used to in most of my devices.

    Fancy coils will go in 2 days later. I'm thinking a micro alien for about a week and a fused clapton a week later.
    Claptons and aliens will be 26 or 28 core and 38 AWG outer.

    The fancy coils are just speculation for the time being. Could find my happy place with plain wire and end it there.

    Ah @Christos -

    I love the anticipation and the planning around the first Skyline build and juice !

    I haven't given it too much thought yet to be honest. Been so busy with other things.

    But the part that confuses me is where this tank is going to shine. I got all the disk options (was easier than trying to decide, lol)

    So I am unsure what its going to perform as
    • a tightish MTL - i doubt it though (but if it does, it will be a great shootout between it and the KF V3 Mini when I get that going ;-) )
    • a very restricted lung hit at low power (around 15 Wattish) - I also doubt this hearing Rob's commentary on this tank. In which case it will be a simple 28g single and a fruity menthol
    • a restricted lung hit at medium power - I suspect this is Skyline territory - but this kind of setup at 25 Watts or so is prolly going to require 26g wire or even fatter wire and I am not mad about that wire on the crispness front - we will see
    lets see - I am hoping it shines in the low power restricted lung hit territory - then i can compare it well with other setups that I have and know well...

    Either way its going to be very interesting...

    I'm going with a juice I know intimately. I have run it in all my setups to see what the happy place is.
    It's a dessert juice that goes down cool or warm and I know all the flavour nuances intimately.
    I'm more after the build that will give me the best flavour and then build on that with respect to placement etc.

    I almost never got a skyline because the airdisks were a debilitating choice so I ended up going with the biggest airflow one.
    I think Todd says the biggest airflow is a restricted DLH so I assume it will perform like the kayfun in the airy department.

    Good plan to use a juice you know well
    As for the airiness my feeling is that the biggest disk will be airier than the KF5 on its biggest air setting

    No need to convert. :D Best of both worlds for me.
    20 days paid leave.
    11 days public holidays.
    10-13 days jewish holidays.
    40 days paid leave a year is worth more than a lot of other perks some companies claim they offer.

    Been waiting for a week.
    Son left his red car lying around....
    Probably the first place the skyline will sit.
