I think i may have the wick too thick that must be why the taste is so strong i was using a 4 size diameter coil so maybe i should go back down to a 3.5 with slightly thinner wick.Then i was told the wick cant be too tight in that coil or the wick channels.

What would be a good tool with link to losen up that wick on both sides of coil before i tuck it into the wick channels.

I use 3mm ID coils in the Siren. "Loosen up the wick"? Not sure what you mean by that. I generally use the "Scottish Roll" technique. Split a cotton pad into two thinner ones, and stretch one in the easy direction until it's 2-3 times as long. Then pull off enough to wick the coil. Spike one end and pull through. You can roll the wick gently before pulling through, but it's not essential.

Cut so the wick just touches the deck both sides, then moisten it with juice and tuck into channels with a jeweller's screwdriver or similar.

With Scottish Roll wicking, the wick should already be fluffy enough. Tease it into place with any small screwdriver - I use one like this.

If you have pointed ceramic tweezers, you could use one point for this.
