For example: you have a 12 single, a 12 double and a 12 triple. the difference between the three is the 12 single has 1 large wire wraped around each armature pole 12 times. The 12 double has two medium sized wires wrapped around each armature pole 12 times. And the 12 triple has three small wires wrapped around each armature pole 12 times.

A Single wind armature has the least amount of weight with just one strand of wire so its spools very quickly and gets to its top rpm very quickly (lots of punch). A Double wind armature has more weight than a single but less electrical resistance with the two wires, so it gets to top rpm fast, but has decent op end (decent punch, decent top end), A Triple wind has more physical wire on it, so it has more weight, so it takes longer to get to full RPM. But, the triple also has less resistance in the wire, so it makes slightly more power (less punch,even more top end). That is discribing Retail hand wound modified motors.

A good custom hand wound Modified motor, can be made with a lightly wound armature, or a heavily wound armature - in the same turn and wind!
