    The regular price is 165$ you won't find this nail for this cheap anywhere else. Anyone I've heard of trying it loves it, yes the infiniti is a great nail, and the biggest rival but why not get a better one for less money.


    Just in case you're interested when you commit to purchasing they don't charge you anything, you only get charged if the price gets to 109$ which is the lowest.

    I'm in for the cheapest price, looks like 8 more people are needed in the next six days. It feels like a win/win for me since I know I really don't need any more toys, but then again it's a sweet price point.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention @NickM!

    Me too ! I ordered 3 regular quartz nails along with a bunch of oil slick products on alt like a week ago, still waiting for them to come, but now I'm really tempted by that one, I was thinking about it before I saw the sale.

    Do you guys feel like you get less goo/reclaim in your glass pieces with domeless ? I really don't like to waste oil and I feel like the nail setup plays a lot

    The nail is supposed to have the best hest retention and air flow of any nail, it's also made by SCS which is always good.


    Now we just need a carb cab for it :)

    @mvapes has the 10mm and the 14/18mm HE Carb cap and an SCS Omni, what's his verdict?

    I prefer the 10. The 18 I find covers the to much and restricts the air flow. The 10 is not just perfect, it's fucking perfect.

    I paid almost 180 for my omni, it is IMO the best nail I've ever used.

    I don't think domed/domeless is the main factor determining how much your piece is going to have reclaim stick to it. The design of all the domeless nails out there vary pretty significantly, but they all have internal passages that can and will get dirty with usage. A traditional nail is much more straightforward in that regard, no hidden places for oil to collect. The downside with a regular nail is that the joint gets sticky and the glass dome gets stuck. This usually doesn't take long to happen.

    I use either/or depending on my mood, piece size and what kind of hash I'm working with.

    If anyone is on the fence about getting a domeless titanium nail, I really think this is the one for you. It's better than a dabessentials, because it's universal. It's better than the HE infinity because it's not center-draw. That being said I doubt I'd ever consider buying one for full retail. I had never used massdrop before this sale. It was a breeze to sign up and you can pay with paypal or bitcoin in addition to traditional methods.

    I have dualitis, I've not yet played too much much with @ogcook 's Infiniti yet but I also have a Dab Essentials. Albeit it's a fake, it offers the same design. I love the DE design asthetically, I feel it's most appealing. As far as use, unless you heat it to the max each time you start to develop a puddle in the middle of the pan. If you over heat, you end up sucking your concentrate right into the holes just like Mr Boote said.

    The dualati's are easy as shit, yes it's male only but with that being said it's simplicity is what makes them so perfect. However, out of all the nails I used HE does not do a good job at deflecting heat from the base. The HE line heats nicely, evenly, and once seasoned IMO hold's it's flavor the best.

    I have a 10 MM flux nail as well and I've tried Vapenweiser but this is all about the domless so I'll keep it at that.

    The Omni - let me start buy saying that you'll be shocked at first when you hold one. Much heavier than the Infinity. All he weight is in the female base though. The base is a fucking tank! As far as heating I could see that SCS followed design suit like DE. If anyone has a DE nail or has used one you'll know that the head is actually two (or more)parts. With both the SCSO and the DE you can endlessly rotate the tip while holding the base. I don't know what it does exactly but the end result is regardless of what angle you direct your flame at, the entire top heats evenly! Without having to aim directly for small material area in the center it still heats evenly.

    The center piece is very well designed, it has three seperate notched as you could see below. These help airflow to the intakes but also make cleaning the tip of t your dabber a fucking breeze. Simple but fucking brilliant!

    [​IMG]

    Personally I think the Omni sits a bit high when used in the traditional 18mm Female Version and I'm curious if anyone noticing something. When seated on a 14mm male it at times feels a bit loose. What I believe the cause is is the center flux tube that holds the fucker together as a whole needs to be about an 1/8 of an inch shorter. I think it's just a bit to long and ends up sitting on the 14mm male on certain pieces,

    Overall, if price isn't a problem - I think the the SCS Omni is the best nail on the market.

    And don't forget this...

    NOTE - The DE is supposed to do the same thing, the knock of I have doesn't.

    I'm in ! Guys, you know you want it :)

    And the international shipping is under $10

    I'm sure it will hold it's value over time. That's a famous brand you could easily resell it.

    I was on the fence about it and then I noticed they accept Bitcoin. I have what used to be a few dollars worth from when it was under $10, so this works out to be almost free for me.

    From massdrop asked if we would get it before xmas;
    @SINCERE604 @Korben, we will try our best, as long as there are no payment errors or funny stuff with the billing information, we will charge you guys when the drop ends. Since SCS is local, we can have it shipped out fairly quickly. I'll keep you guys updated post drop. Keep sharing in the meantime and upvote/bump @Nick_Mags posts

    tried to reply at massdrop but could not for one reason or the other.

    Anybody know if the international shipping includes tracking?

    I would like to know too ! That should fit in a small air mail letter, those are usually faster than larger packages/parcels, some have tracking, some not.

    There is this tendency everywhere :(

    Fortunately it's still the exception, a bunch of stuff never arrived to me in the past and it's very frustrating. I'm confident for this one.

    Sorry for double post, cannot edit anymore. Seems like there is contradicting information about the shipping time. On the massdrop site it says will ship before christmas, yet when I inquired trough email they responded it will not be shipped before the 27th of december.

    I am still undecided, I can pay with paypal giving me a bit of safety should it not arrive...just wanted to give you guys the heads up on this, seeing it says something else on the site.

    Edit: just recieved answer that they are unsure when it will ship exactly. Mail responder said: 'I don't know why they put up that banner.(delivered before 25th in US)'

    because SCS and massdrop operate in the same area they can pick up the nails reducing the time it would normally take for the company to ship it to massdrop. I am really hoping they offer us Canadians expedited shipping, otherwise we won't get them before xmas.

    This is just what I heard.
