Cracked elbow glass on my Arizer whip...

    Sorry in advance if this is the wrong sub-forum. This is my first post here.

    Somewhat new to vaping. Got my first desktop unit with an Arizer V-Tower. Bought it from a reputable major online retailer, not eBay or anything like that. The elbow part of the whip was cracked right out of the box. It's not so major that it impedes airflow, but it will take a heck of a lot less mechanical stress to break it now. I give it days at the most before I'm screwed.

    Is this thing typical with these whips? I've been trudging through years worth of posts about the EQ and V-Tower, and I can assume there are compatible parts that address this while 90 degree angle issue. I don't want to keep dropping 10 bucks plus shipping every time a piece breaks. Arizer doesn't warranty glass parts, obviously.

    Anyone have any ideas? Maybe straight glass adapters that I can attach the whip tube to? I don't wanna get too complicated, I'm still a noob.

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    Well that stinks but don't give up on the elbow yet. I've been using the same elbow for over a year and more times then I can count I've torched it white hot it for a reclaim hit. I did get tired of buying the $6 dome screens and started to use just a pipe screen. It works well but makes the elbow a little smaller inside (stronger hit) I always elbow pack. Oh yeah it sounds weird but if you want a fast heat up time.
    Turn the EQ on wait until the display says it's at your temp then turn the fan on for just a min or so.
    Before I started to use the fan my heat up time was 10 minutes now it's 2 mins.
    Oh yeah it's a V-tower so no fan.
