    These are postcard sized handouts. Do you have a shop or collective? I'm sure they will get a poster made for you if so. I can mail you the cards too.

    I am my own collective these days :brow: ... think that counts :cool:
    Card or not it would still be going above my dab bar for my m8's to get a kick out of.

    Side note... is the 18mm's bowl (dabbing surface) bigger that the 14? it looks like the pictures are proportional so that it would seem that the 18mm in facts has a much wider dabbing surface...

    I've got the 18 mm sleeved in the mail today, thx J.!

    It is seasoned and I love the looks and the stability of the nail. Airflow and flavors are impressive!

    @farscaper: the 18 mm: surface is ENORMOUS!

    ;)

    Man, the one thing im getting to not like about mu vapenwiser is the cup shape. The "ring around the tube" style domeless is effecttive, but the dabbing surface is quite difficult to clean, because the cup is so deep with the tall strait walls...

    Now, these fine tools are a diffrent kinda beast! That concave surface if sexy and look so easy to clean. Im still curious if the 14 surface would be smaller than the 18 (im assuming it is) which means that the 18 might require a little more powerful torch, or longer heat time than the 14..

    What would be cool... Is a "setup" where u had one domess nail head and that and the 14 and 18mm base could be machined to unscrew so the weighted bases were interchangable... Just a thought...

    Wow! Those info cards are really neat! Kudos to them for making a quality product that includes the most commonly asked info. I haven't tried a domeless Ti nail, but it these look mighty tempting!

    what's the benefit of having one of these vs dome & nail? kinda want one but holding off because of the price.

    mostly, just no dome to put on and take off. But this nail leaves less reclaim in the rig (imo).

    i have a theory that there are tiny droplets of oil, not fully vaped, that splatter off a standard nail and float with the vapor but with this nail those droplets finish fully expanding into vapor while traveling through the inside of the heated nail.

    I really got my eye on the 14mm. I was on the phone with Dab Essentials today and hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to grab a 14mm. The gentleman on the phone went off about the quality of the product, which says a lot as I know how expensive blocks of quality Ti are. These units seem like a good value for a premium product.

    haha, I use all my pieces and love them all for some reason/some specific usage.

    -The combo mini DG & DE domeless is a TREAT: big dabs, with almost no vapor loss (as a fritter & old nail would), no caughing AT ALL, and glowing in the dark motion!
    -The Bates & Worm diffusion pump is my favorite one at the moment as my daily oil rig: ergonomic wise (the shape, compacity, design), recycling & moving marble motions are so NICE, flavours and smoothness of the hit are from another world, and this piece cleans 100% in seconds!
    -The mobius I love its looks though it is the maximum height I "tolerate" in my personal glass arsenal. Very well made piece, 0 drag (almost -2 drag if you ask me ;-)
    -The SYN worked inverted shower is my herbal vaping piece mainly (cloud, UD, INH, Herborizer...). I love the thick base the mouthpiece, and the 60 slitts of the perc. that looks like it was laser cut (SO precise!) ;-)

    THOSE ARE MY FAVORITE PIECES IN MY ARSENAL. I'm aiming for a collection where I use each piece as much as the others, and I want no pieces sleeping. Therefore the 2 others are probably soon no more in my possession:

    -The kush scientific mite is a very cool and solid travel rig (though I'm getting a new one -that fits in my pocket, yeeeeha-) vith a beautiful perc. and thick glass & base
    -The SGW waffle (not pictured here) is my first piece but I now want exclusively DI pieces. So it is a very nice 14 bubbler and the labwork skillet makes it a solid errl piece, but I'm more a dome (or domeless, ROFL) guy... now I know!

    If you had to choose between the mini DG and Bates & Worm, which one would you prefer?

    Haha, that's the point...I want a collection where I cannot "choose" as the pieces that stay are loved equally and used for their specific pro's!
    And really when I try to balance & make a choice... I just can't! :\ Both are very appealing & sexy to me for different reasons (perc. tech, glowing vs. little marble...). Maybe the Bates & Worm if I was a constant traveller & the DG if I was a house guy (size & ergonomic wise), or the Bates & Worm if I knew I was an "only little daily dabs guy" or the DG, if I knew I was an "only night-time big fat dabs guy" (efficiency and smoothness wise)...This is a non ending debate, ROFL!

    How do you like like the dab essentials dome less vs the do you dab nails? I assume that the dome less is more efficient with less claim?
