Sorry I didnt get back to you sooner...somehow I didnt see these latest comments! I like using the pilgrim in single coil mode and have no issues. I will say that the dual coil flavor is the best Ive got out of this tank but single coils perform great. Ive been using with a single coil for the past few weeks and really enjoy it. The flavor is very nice and crisp, wicking is faster and easier and it drinks less juice, making the tank stretch out a little longer. The flavor with dual coils is better, that's the truth...but its gonna guzzle juice like there's no tomorrow! Either way the tank performs well with singles and duals. You wont have any trouble tasting your juice with a single coil though!
