    Maybe it's for e-cigs and other pen vapes?

    If there was a prize... you'd have won it ! :nod:

    Apparently it's an adapter to make the NC compatible with an E-Dab electronic cigarette (which I don't own, lol).

    Anyways, Emily has taken care of me and immediately shipped out the proper tip no charge.

    I was thinking maybe that is what it was, and it occurred to me that an GonG attachment could be made, with a carb, to fit vapes like the LSV and the Cloud. Hmmm..

    Having personally met Kristian a few times in "SLC UT" Hes kind of got allot of people pissed off trying to get his patent for this nectar collector. Ive used a few times and think its a nice product but for the price and still having to dab out a hit each time and also torch the tip i find my nail/TV DART setup much mor pleasant of an experience. But to each their own

    I kind of agree with both statements regarding the price of the device for dabbing AND the to each their own. I purchased as a dual purpose myself, for doing micro dabs without the need of a wp setup and dabber as well as a hydro tube to attach to my Solo, so it was this dual purpose that interested me as much as the idea of having yet another GLASS TOY :D because he who dies with the most toys WINS (or so I'm told), and I like the idea of being a winner :lol:

    Def an expensive attachment for vaporizers but haha like you said he who has the most "toy" wins. He has be really innovative i give him that and have had a few of his glass peices of my own. I just dont see the 250$ price tag that appealing ;)

    I also debated the price tag, but like smokum I saw another purpose. I wasn't even really interested in using it to dab with (although I have) I wanted it to pair with my log vapes. So far it's excelled in that purpose. It sits well balanced on my Zap and Pod. It doesn't take a lot of room on my desk. And best of all it doesn't spill all over my keyboard and monitor, causing me to buy new ones. I'm looking at you Bent. So far it's gotten a lot of use. And who knows, the market will eventually determine the price.

    I believe joint wax is the best combo with the tips, they will ship out some wax to keep the tip from slipping out, as well as the mouthpiece.

    Put some joint wax on the ground joint, and it will hold for sure.

    Thought joint wax was supposed to be a lubricant...

    I actually spent all of the Austin Texas Glass Roots show next to the Nectar Collector People and I gotta say their stuff is gorgeous. He makes beautiful products and I have to admit I was tempted to pick up a piece for myself. Lol Even glass blowers get GAS.

    A quick heads up.I tried purchasing the NC through the above liks and got scammed.
    Luckily I paid with PP and was able to get my money back.

    Hi(gh) My first post here.
    The tip stays where it's supposed to.
    I've had mine for about 6 days and the only thing I dislike is that the tips don't clean to BRAND NEW looking.
    I got off the phone with Kristian earlier today and he informed me they have a Ti tip for it now.
    I'm looking forward to trying it out.
    Also, the tip gets dirty FAST if you're doing piles. It's much better to roll out your gear into lines and dab that way.

    Here's a couple U-Toob vids.
    Not me:

    Me: (I put a vid of me trying it out, but I cough a lot from dabs, and (as usual) I coughed in my vid.)

    I got mine from Headroom in Willits CA 95490 (Search Google for their site.)

    This is new tech for me, so I'm not fully up on what's state of the art, but I'll give this piece & method 4 stars!
    (Kristian is also extremely cool to talk to on the phone.)
