    Where to get them? And if possible where to get them in Europe?

    What do we need to know about them? (I.e. How long to heat etc.)

    Been wanting to try one out but no luck finding them anywhere...

    c'mon bro. Quartz has a similar specific heat to glass (both higher than titanium) so you do a similar 10-20 second torch. Quartz is much more durable than glass but it's personal preference on what tastes better, glass or quartz (or ceramic).

    I was gunna start a quartz thread one of these days but looks like I slept on it too long and I gotta throw my questions in here:zzz:

    Anyone have a quave club banger or halen honey hole they'd care to report on? I'd like to get a banger just for ease of use (don't gotta worry about dropping it down hole)/airflow but $150 is beyond ridiculous when a regular quartz domeless costs ~$25. Anyone know any other suppliers of bangers?

    @hishighness Hehe you really think I did not google it and read for ages before posting here? I would not dare too...And then you go on and try to hijack the thread yourself...funny you

    Yet I was wondering what the ideas about them were here on FC(what does freaking google really know?), if there were any good suppliers to point out(more specific in Europe), what different models one can get and their pros and cons...if there are people that can speak from experience and have some things to point out after using them for a while?

    But my main question is: Where to get them? So many different suppliers with different models...which are trustworthy? Quality all the same?

    Euh...yes I did read it. Why that remark? What does this add?

    Just trying to collect the options one has when it comes to quartz nails seeing there was no dedicated thread for it yet.

    Dude, there is no need to be rude. I was answering your questions. Just not the way you wanted.

    Have fun with your dedicated thread man.

    Peace im out.

    I added the link myself so I knew he shipped internationally by then (maybe I just did not know it a minute before when I started the thread, sorry for that)....and sorry but cannot see how that was rude my friend:shrug: maybe making assumptions about people is not a good thing to do...(namely 1: did not read the thread? 2:knew not that he shipped internationally?) Really do appreciate the input, but please do not tell me what I am thinking:p

    Lets keep on track here:
    Where can we find them (both US and EU)?
    Are there any trusted vendors we know of? Some have already been mentioned, are there more?
    What are the differences when it comes to the different models?

    And then a specific one to the one I linked to: it seems to have a whole in the bottom of the dish? Would that not lead to spoiling some of the oil?

    I had a regular quartz domeless. It fit into my male joint but it wasnt a female jointed domeless... anyway it lasted about a week before it broke. I just bought a 14 mm female quave banger should be here next week cant wait

    Thats good to know...a week does not seem very long. Did others find their quartz breaking this quickly?

    Could you hit me up with a link? People are always saying facebook sells everything for cheap but I got no idea where these groups are or what to search for.

    A week?? Has to be a cheap nail or you got it too hot too fast for the first few uses, I've dropped my quartz nail several times now and there's not even a crack, really don't see how you could break it in less than a week (even glass nails last longer than that).

    Please report back when you get the banger!

    Edit: Going through the links above now I realize they're links for bangers! Thought they were nails for some reason, just ordered one from the Green Buddha, thanks!

    I looked at some of their glass... and, um, they have ones to laugh at, not use. The quartz nail does look nice, though. Their bubblers... lol

    Agreed. He has some awful pieces from China I think. I recently bought the Turbine cup oil rig though and it works really well :)

    But he does have some alright accessories. I have bought adapters off him before and they are still intact and going strong...

    I was thinking their glass looked like it was straight from DHgate or something

    ... but with all the pictures taken on their sides so to disorient the educated customer from immediately telling the difference:D

    Got my banger (and a titanium paper clip poker) for $25 and it's working reallll nice, the carb cap fits it perfectly so you could roll up literally a gram into a ball and then drop it in, cap it, and that'd be a legitimate 100% efficient 1 gram dab. So much easier than trying to drop shatter around the domeless nail.

    I just wish there was some way to get it electric or a ceramic one (for the heat retention). The taste isn't as good as ceramic either but still better than titanium. I'll probably use this when I'm by myself but pull out the other ones if it's more than a few people.

    So hows the carb cap work on that? Seems like it would be hard to seal with the cap given how its cut at a slant. @hishighness

    It actually fits very nicely, I have a video of it below you can kinda see it, the slant actually works well since it sort of hooks the cap in place. It doesn't really make a 'seal' but it fits on top and keeps most of the smoke in.

    Ah for some reason I was thinking you leave the carb cap on there longer than that. Hands free and what not.

    Do you have a vid showing the heating of that bucket nail? What are they even called?

    Bucket nail? You mean the quartz club banger? Nah, I removed that part since I figured people would appreciate not having to fast forward... oops :ko: it's basically the same heating as glass, 10-20 seconds. It does lose heat very quickly though, there's no chance of getting 2 dabs off one heating unless you have both ready to go/carb cap them (as opposed to the ceramic where you can make both dabs after heating it and still take your time).

    The banger is still really much nicer for capping since it used to be I'd need another person to hold the cap for me but since it's so easy to drop it in I can just do it myself.

    Thanks! So basically, so use this nail I would either need a piece with female joint, or something like this?

    Do these make these club banger style nails for DI rigs?
