    If the price is bugging you, and you don't really need it to fit into female joints, HE does have another nail called Dualiti. It fits 14mm and 18mm male joints. It's one piece...design is pretty close to the same as their older domeless nail(the 10mm and 14mm ones).

    I guess it would be the last nail I ever bought...
    I have both male and female pieces, that's why it's so attractive to me

    haha :)

    i guess thats what im tryin to say :tup:


    i must say, hold onto you money, as come march jointless designs are coming out, id post whos on top of it but its not the right thread.

    they also already have a similar design, both have their pros n cons, main being price, but like i said, many artists will prob catch onto the jointless designs soon

    STARTING TODAY HIGHLY EDUCATED HAS TEMPORARILY CEASED ALL SALES OF E-NAIL UNITS

    Highly Educated has a reputation in the market for quality products, and at eight-hundred dollars retail, there is a level of expectancy for your product to perform. A 30% – 40% failure rate of a single component is not acceptable, especially for a high end item. That is about the failure rate that we have been experiencing with the E-nail. Yes I have been servicing the units for free, but this is still not an acceptable solution to a monstrous problem. Free repairs are great, but when you spend that much money on a product you don’t want it to break in the first place. Selling a product which is known to fail is brand damaging to our reputation for quality and it will only generate more ill-will amongst consumers. Yes, I understand you might want an E-nail really bad, but would you still want it as bad if you knew it was going to fail? I can not keep pushing a product onto the market with that kind of failure rate. It doesn’t make sense to do so, not ethically, not financially. Furthermore, I have personally invested heavily into production but my costs are likely to double or even triple if I keep putting out units with a high failure rate. That is why I have determined the best action for me to take now is to cease the sales of all units until this issue has been rectified. Once and when the issue has been resolved, I will resume selling the units where I left off on the waiting lists. I apologize for the headaches caused but I can assure you mine is the biggest at this point in time. I appreciate your understanding in this matter, I appreciate any sympathy, and if you have a spare Advil that would be great.
    Thanks,
    Task
    tl;dr Not letting a 125k headache turn into a 250k head ache.

    Just saw this thread, reminds me of this other thing i just found called the electro dabber. Dnt know the price or how to get one but it looks a lot easier than the enail. Anyway electrodabber.com

    I too am becoming more interested in an item like this. (ENail) The one above seems cool too, but they require too much info to get any pricing etc...

    I know someone who owned an HE E Nail, and he really seemed to like it! Hopefully more devices like this will be in development soon.

    Hmmm... I would probably avoid filling out any sort of form to find out about a product. Especially on a page that has no info on it. It has a photo, and a list.

    It's screaming "scam" at me.

    I wouldn't say that. This one seems legit. Anyway, a buyer can be disappointed by any shop, as a consumer it's in your interest to watch your back constantly. I too think they're asking too much but not as a scam.

    800 dollars for a a couple of simple items that cost less than 200 dollars is pure and utter B.S. .......... Dab Essentials pulled the same crap with thier 180 dollar TI nail ....... now that people have learned where they come from and how much they really cost to make ...... people refuse to buy them.

    Cannatax is B.S.

    you can't buy it because all the units failed, and it was pulled from the market, for being garbage.

    Where can someone get one of those e-nails? I've seen everyone has them.

    Does anyone know and can give me an educated guess as to what he used for the Cord he has there? Or the adapter to his Ti Nail?

    I've got the carb cap. It's pretty cool, but it's hard to use unless you have something that you can bhomb or do monster dabs. Gooey stuff stays on the dabber so long it's over by the time you get it all off and can put the cap on. If you have some honeycomb or really good shatter you can just drop on and cap it right away, it works great.

    The hole in the cap is on an angle. It forces the air to push the oil across the surface of the cup, so it spreads evenly and takes heat from the entire cup, instead of just one side of it. You don't have to heat the nail as hot. The cap itself gets pretty hot fast. If you don't take it off right away you won't be able to handle it. It's cool, but I wouldn't call it a necessity by any means.

    I just merged both of our E-nail threads so things might look a bit scrambled. I'm not sure how we wound up with two.

    At any rate, I was looking at these thread because of this:

    http://www.highlyeducatedti.com/blog/?p=321#more-321

    For those who aren't aware, the manufacturer he refers to is Cary Widener of High-Temp Industries, the same guy who pulled the same intellectual property theft on VXL, and who was selling counterfeit Clouds on eBay.

    saw this today, that's beyond fucked, really too bad for task. of course it's his own fault if he didn't even get a basic non-compete signed but i guess when you trust someone there's no need for that. definitely won't be supporting a thieving fuck which is too bad because i would've loved to see a "refined" highly educated enail
