Ohh sorry - meant to say, I would buy again
They're like the rbt stems with the spikes in a row so they're not as good as some of the others we've seen pictured in the thread but I'm happy with what I got for the money
I've been using the longer ones exclusively on my Zed and Life Saber Log since they arrived

I've not got a Tubo and I've filed down both of the stems I bought to fit the Splinters but I'm still gonna say they should fit the Tubo fine as I fitted a top hat basket screen and a 15mm stem gauze before I trimmed them.

Yes - I've got 2 of the long ones with 9 spikes
Didn't buy any of the smaller 3 spike versions as I've got a couple of rbt shorties already
I would buy a medium version with 5 or 6 spikes too tho, if they start doing them

Yes - I logged into dhgate to check I bought the same ones, before I posted earlier, after reading @Easywider 's experience with them.
After an exciting recount, I have one with 8 and one with 9 spikes from the same seller (which were both about 125mm long before I got the dremel out)

Damn. So much for the 18mm/19mm "standard". How long did it take to file them down!?!? :clap:

If the basket screen would fit, then the length issue can be fixed with some teflon tape wrapped around the widest part of the taper, to make it slightly fatter...

I made a nice cooling stem for my iHeat. I use epicvape's 18mm GonG adapter for the e-nano, and quartz beads for cooling. Teflon tape was needed to stop the basket screen from touching the iHeat screen, by making the taper wider so the tube is held a mm higher..

You can buy quartz beads for cheap on ebay . I got a lifetime supply for a few quids... They are not perfect spheres but more like pebbles, but they work and are cheapo. Used in some tool sterilising machine in nail salons. I added a few beads in the tube and hold them in place with another screen at the bottom of the straight part of the tube! You only want a layer of beads at the bottom of the tube to slightly restrict the airflow- anymore than that and you lose flavor.
