    So I'm using a grav labs reclaimer with ti nail for the first time.

    I have seasoned the nail thoroughly. Now I am ready to hit the nail. However, and I can't stress this enough; we have no dabbing culture here. I have no idea how to dab.

    @Caligula was helpful enough to let me know I need to carb the dome when I drop my dab. However, I find the top of this dome is hard to cap, due to weird shaped opening. How am I best to go about this?

    Finger? Remember you don't want to stop airflow, just restrict it.

    Also the carb method works very well with lower temp dabs. Think 700-800°F range. Idea is so slow boil the oil and conserve vapor versus flash vaping it instantly. This preserves flavor very well!

    I found its roughly good to go if you can hold your hand over the nail from about 0.25" (Be careful!) without it hurting enough for you to need to move it away.

    Yup finger works well but be careful, tap it on & off. Having vaporized oil condense on your finger really burns. I also use the cap of a no goo container when using a dome (most of the time I go domeless)
