Guys, I am trying to grind for my Flair with Phoenix. It is normal that even on 2.2 I don't get enough fine coffee?

These numbers are seem to be more reasonable for me.

Interesting why for somebody is the good range 3.0-3.4, it's quality fluctuation or the coffee beans? Moreover there shouldn't b big difference between each Kinu models, because thread on the main shaft is the same.

You can have even more variation on the same machine. If you use different coffees and different extraction methods (long preinfusion - blooming - vs no preinfusion). You don't need to worry that much on what the number is.

On different machines you get even more variation. If I use 20g on a 54mm Dalla Corte basket is one thing, and 15g on a 58mm basket is another.

Also, for filter, a natural processed coffee with good solubility needs a much coarser setting than a less soluble washed.

Thanks, you are absolutely right.

Just for reference: my best setting is around 1.4.5 @16.5g.
