Hopefully soon a zircon ceramic bowl will be available for the ZX.
But if you want a phase3 compatible metal bowl, O'Connell will soon offer their SS bowl for 14mm injectors.
I'll take one for my SX
I would not personally recommend pairing zirconia parts with any metal parts that are going to see repeated mating. I see another company promoting this and I'm a bit shocked over it to be honest, but as a manufacturer unfortunately I'm not really allowed to speak out about this kind of stuff anymore.
The SX on the other hand would have no problems being paired with a bowl of similar metal composition.
I am so glad I jumped on the ZX train! Compared to my other ball vapes, I find the ZX to be more efficient and smooth while still delivering monster clouds.
That's what I love to hear!! That was definitely the design goal so I'm always pleased to see people enjoying it as it was intended!
It's funny, I have a bunch of different 14mm bowls and adapters for use with my phase3 vapes and couchlog. The best one for the SX/ZX is certainly the Phase3 bowl.
I have found that I am getting better results out of my SX than my ZX. And I finally decided it is because the SX makes a better seal on the bowl. Still experimenting, but I was surprised by that result.
That's interesting to read as it's the same dimensions and held to the same tolerances!
Have you tried a 14/20 bowl that allows the ZX to sit all the way down by any chance? New PHASE3 bowls will be switching to that - not this next incoming batch, but the following batch. They are slightly more expensive but it will look a little cleaner.
I've considered doing more SX's as my local manufacturer just asked about it the other day, but to be honest I didn't really make anything on them so I'm not sure it's worth offering them. It's been fairly challenging to turn a profit on any of this stuff once it's all said and done. I mean sales come in, and products go out - and it all seems very real - but there's never really anything left in the end. My brand is still far too small and unknown to make up for it with sales volume; and the profit margins are already challenged trying to compete with so many similar products. I mean I'm physically, mentally, and emotionally all-in here, but I still wonder about the sustainability. Maybe I'm just too hard on myself - things are growing... I think.
Sometimes business is looking up and other times it just all seems so overwhelming. I'm trying to get converted over to a "high risk" merchant account so I don't have to deal with being shut down, but with that comes a plurality of increased processing fees just to allow transactions to occur. I'm just not totally sure when the "fog" will clear. I remain optimistic though. This entire brand is a self reflection and personal test to see if I can actually follow something all the way through, so I'm not really going anywhere, this is all progression for me as a person, but at the same time, I just don't know.
A discovery that concludes the fact that a black zircon ceramic bowl perfectly compatible with the ZX is essential
Those are actually coming up next, I've been working out the details for quite some time with my manufacturer. I just need to sell thru this current batch of ZX's.
I hope to eventually offer a fully compiled and optimized ZX kit - that's my goal for the current time period. Once that is complete, I can begin working on other new and innovative products.
