    This is why I can understand why it's not going to be a priority for the girls at Hex. I only ask because they've mentioned several times that it's something that they're planning to implement. I know the Sublimator guys are working on a similar app-controlled power delivery for their rig (anything has to be better than their current setup), but if I have the choice I'd rather support a couple of legit, hardworking, honest chicks than a larger company whose marketing ethics are questionable. I'd also rather have a single device that could run a Sub and Liger from the one unit.

    This is definitely the first time I've seen anyone claim the Flower Pot to be a better dry herb vape than the Sub, though. I think the Flower Pot's great and if I had confirmation that Sub support was coming for the Hex-Nail, I'd seriously consider picking up both a Hex-Nail and a Flower Pot to tide me over until the Sub support is implemented. I know there's some seriously draconian bullshit going on in this forum that frowns upon people calling a spade a spade when it comes to product and marketing criticisms, but I will say this; most of the official marketing of the Sublimator that I've seen is... questionable. Some of the "biogasification", "thermal equilibrium", "sublimation", etc marketing terms are laughable at best. At worst, they're capitalizing on a demographic that they know is not well versed in the sciences. That aside, I don't believe there's a vape out there with better heat retention and a better atomizer than the Sub. The difference may not be huge, but fuck it- I want the best.

    I'm wondering that the HexNail isn't still optimized for the Sub. I thought this already happened since HN has a loaned Sub a few months ago?

    I guess main difference in performing is the Sub is a convection/conduction vape while the FP is a real convection vape. Didn't have tested neither the OGFP nor the SH but believe from all what I've read that both are much more smoother than the Sub whose profile is a little harsh for my liking. I've the HerbTi which seem to be similar smooth as the FP (to which i would like the HN optimized too)

    What's the currrent state about optimization of the HN for different vapes? Is anyone ready? I'm hearing FP, D-Nail, CCA Liger, Bangers? Ready or still under construction?

    I think some of it is from the Hex-Nail using 120 and 240 V coils. The Sub heaters are 36V I think.

    IIRC the issue for us was the 36V DC it wants. After playing with it for awhile and trying a few things... We just had to put it on the back-burner with so much still going on (re: no sleep) when we realized it would be tougher than we thought. We enjoyed using it, but since it was a loaner controller we didn't want to try running improper power through it (potentially damaging it).

    We want to be the jack-of-all-trades, but we also want to be the master of what we do. We gotta take one over the other right now. If things start looking up and we have more people to work with, more will get done faster.

    Tunings will always be 'in the works', but we admit some of them are rough right now. We have a few customers that have helped dial in multiple new tunings we will be implementing for the 30mm Liger + Inserts in our v2.0 release. Once we put a v2.0 test rig together we'll be updating some tunings and hopefully getting back to adding new ones regularly.

    But...we have plenty of customers using nails we don't have tunings for and just not selecting one. ie. All our customers running bangers. We have some generic "Light, Medium, or Heavy" tunings in place that work for some other nails quite well, too. We've had a few people let us know they're being put to good use.

    Please remember guys...We are 2 people. Though I may make it seem simple or quick sometimes this all is a slow process until we have more man power. There's only so many hours in the day and we are really wearing down here, y'all. We need a break. :rip:

    We're headed back cross-country to Oregon and moving into a new place in less than a week. We hit the road Sunday. We are literally going to be soldering & coding in our rooms when we stop, etc. We still gotta pack and we are wrapping up the Final Five 1.2s for shipment.

    How do you update the Hex when a new update comes out ? I was looking through all the options the other night and see update info but no actual way to hit anything and update , just wondering how it works so i am prepared.

    I’m ready for 2.0. Everybody like ‘omg iOS11’ and I’m sitting here like ‘omg dabOS2’

    You haven't even given a round-about date, let alone begun taking deposits, correct?

    Due to the nature of your operation... and my own nature... I think I'll do my best to get in the first run :haw:

    Just trying to be sure here!

    That sounds like an awesome idea! I love supporting creators who do custom work like HexNail. But what usually happens to me is I gather my shekels and place a custom order.. Weeks/months goes by and my washer/car/PC breaks, which I repair right away... Only to recieve an email notifying me my order is ready to ship the very next day :o. It's like clockwork!

    Your Batch Cap method seems like it'd be a great way to prevent my issue. Reducing the cost of the payment that might come up at a flexible date, and giving us a window to make that payment, should ensure every custom order goes to the one who wanted it most. Love the idea; definitely will be looking to get in on a batch.

    Yeh I agree, I'd be more than happy to put a 50% deposit down.

    I'll definitely be aiming to be in an early batch for the 02. I'm tweaking to try this out with a flower pot.

    I want a purpleheart cap for my 2.0. So hopefully you’re gonna make one of those. :lol: Will the hexshaped cutout show the colored light from the light ring? :brow:
