    I just bought my first 14mm rig and I need to get a nail for it. The problem is the dome is short and they only had dab n flo one piece nails at the shop that were too tall. I was able to borrow a friend's counter weight which is a 14mm cup so at least I can use it. I know I could get a domeless but I like the dome and
    want to use it.

    TLDR if anyone could measure how tall their 14mm nail is from the joint to the top. I'm looking for one that is at most 3/4" or 2 cm. I'm looking for a reputable brand but don't want an adjustable. Something like a flux or ti-phoon but if anyone knows of one that will work I'd appreciate it. Thanks

    My 14mm Flux is a little bit over 3/4" from joint to top.

    Thanks, that's what I was afraid of, looks like I'm gonna have to shell out for an adjustable unless anyone else chimes in with one that will work

    The nail on my prometheus pocket dabber is 9/16" from joint to top. I dont know if you can buy just the nail though, and the kit is $80

    Why not just get a different, taller dome? That seems easier and cheaper in my estimation.

    Like I said,I like the dome and want to use it became it matches the rig, otherwise I would get a domeless.

    The Ti nail I have is really short- about 1" overall and prob .5" from joint to top. I'll measure it exactly when I get home.

    I actually got an answer from thedablab.com the ti power tiphoon is going to be the perfect size, a little bit shorter than the flux nail is.
