Is the DCup worth the extra cost over say a 710 coil+deep banger, Already having a vrod I can say I'm not the biggest fan of the SiC Dish dabs compared to Quartz bangers, is the sapphire insert worth the money?

I like the robustness of the DCup. I also like that it protects your expensive dish. I get the quartz argument. I’d have 4 quartz dishes for everything if I could.

I wasn’t a big fan of the VRod SiC dish. I often used a 25mm quartz dish in its place. The VRod SiC seems rough. My DCup SiC dish has a smoother appearance. I’ve been really enjoying it. Which has me wondering...sapphire? I know I’ll love it. Is it worth it?
 
Am I strange for questioning why the dcup kit comes with no handle or safety post/stand?

Kinda odd since the dcup is used just like the flowerpot: stays on stand, hot, and the heat is only transferred and applied to the glass when in use. Obviously the Handle isn’t actually essential (even if you’re touching it all the time), but I would think that a stand and heat post would be pretty necessary, like the vrod kits. From what I understand the dcup 14m glass adaptor sits inside the universal heat post, but I still need a place to rest a hot dcup. My stand and post currently hold my vrod, but the big stand should be able to accommodate another heat post if I’m not mistaken.

Does the tbucket glass adaptor also slot into the heat stand? I realize the tbucket doesn’t need a stand— the stand is the rig itself — but occasionally I’ll change or clean my rig randomly mid session or whatever, so it would be useful to have a “parking spot” for either device.

I’m still incredibly torn on the two systems. I know I’ll enjoy either one, but I’m definitely waffling back and forth between them. The dcup seems like the more logical choice: safer for the glass (heat) and possibly less chance for tipping over.

.... But the idea of a “ready to go” tbucket station, I.e, not having to apply the heat by moving the hot device back and forth back and forth a million times just sounds like a better experience for me. Sit down and dab. Decisions decisions.

not sure but I do like having a handle on mine. It’s functional and it also gives it an upscale finished look. I’m probably going to bite the bullet and grab a TB and plan on just switching coils between the DC and TB. I don’t see my self using both at the same time but don’t quote me on that.

From what I understand the dcup 14m glass adaptor sits inside the universal heat post,
18 mm works too it’s just a bit more wobbly. Picture below is 14mm followed by 18mm.

I have been told that it sits in on the heat post very nicely. They use the same adapters. I will more than likely store my TB on the stand as opposed to on the rig. Just FYI I’m still loving my DCup. This device checks all the boxes for me. Wanting a TB is purely my excessive nature. Good luck with the internal struggle.
 
Awesome pics man, thanks, fox!! The cup looks amazing and likely the direction I’ll go as well, it makes the most sense, even though I want the TB for whatever reason.

I know with moderate certainty dcup won’t make my rig tip over, there’s pics of the dcup looking very sturdy on a fumed leisure incycler about halfway through the pages. Meanwhile there’s a member selling the same piece in classifieds today because the Tbucket wasn’t working with his incycler. I asked him to elaborate a bit, but considering I could barely put the vrod onto this piece without a step down, to get closer to center... I’m guessing it can’t support the tbucket without one.

Honestly, at this point, I’ll probably bring the fuckin rig up to NV and decide that way. I want to pick up a few odds and ends anyway, so it’ll be a great excuse to see everything in the flesh if I don’t get too carried away...

I own a DCup, other then the ability to adapt to angled glass rigs, I don’t see any real advantage to a TCup. Any perceived difference in the tiny added length of the longer TCup tube would be insignificant when going through water in my opinion. If you are worried about your glass joint getting warm/hot use a PTFE sleeve on the metal DCup 14/18mm post, though I don’t even consider this an issue myself with all my glass rigs.

If you use angled glass rigs, get a TCup, otherwise I prefer the DCup, shorter, safety lid to keep my $150 NV sapphire dish from dropping out when moving the cup around, and yes, it does happen. Easy to take apart and clean.
 
Get out of here with your logic, you’re totally right. Plus with quarantine/wfh not slowing down anytime soon, I know (just like my vrod) it’s likely to stay on for longggg periods of time... keeping the hot cup off my glass is probably my better bet. but as you say, the heat transfer during actual use is hardly an issue. Black Friday is how far away?

With a PTFE sleeve on my 14mm metal DCup post, I’ve left mine on my glass rigs for over 6 hours. Even without the sleeve good glass should not have any heat transfer issues. I use the sleeve more as it makes a nice tight fit and the titanium post can’t scratch the female glass joint not for perceived heat problems that I’ve never heard any real life claims of????

Ive been doing the same internal debate over dcup vs tbucket currently leaning towards the dcup for the smaller form factor, and keeping my cup locked in place is a nice plus as well. too many times ive been overly medicated and dumped hot sic balls on to the carpet dont want to imagine a scolding hot sic plate in my lap.
