The J-hook thread!

I just ordered two of these in 18mm from ebay – buy one for $10 and get a second one for $6, free shipping.

Does anyone know whose studio made the Lotus VaporScope? It was a premium j-hook, provided a great view of vapor production, and worked really nicely for other vapes as well. I'd really like to have an 18mm version for the TinyMight.

anybody know if OGB ever does holiday deals? hoping to land a device tonight that seems like it needs a good j-hook for company. i've got the RWW which has been great and still good as new.

Nope! Nothing as far as I know
thanks. makes it easier to pull the trigger now. of course i just remembered i work next to a glass studio, so maybe i should see if they can do anything. other than OGB, it seems like the O'Connell, RWW, and Lamart are often mentioned - any other tried and true/standout offerings? i guess gold can be struck on IG.

Just received this J hook I got from @RogueGuy The Rogue Wax Works. It is pretty cool don't you think?



Glass pokes are of varying depth going in a spiral up the j hook. In person it is quite pretty.
Cool, so this piece is the thickness/quality of the standard china glass j-hook but with the cooling dimples added? How much are they when in stock?

It's great to see someone offer a hook like this: I'm always advocating for j-hooks to pair with my favorite portables but not everyone is trying to get in at the OGB price and without the dimples the cooling benefits are limited :tup:

Woah someone gave Yingmin5 / Lumin88 an OGB style right angle J hook design with spikes to make, now available here! 16mm tubing, 18.8mm female joint, very many cooling spike indents, meh mouthpiece?...

I prefer a bugle-style mouthpiece, followed by those thick "lollipop" ones, but as "meh" as this one looks the price makes it look pretty tempting!

What a good value, thanks. To justify the 3 for $35 when I already have the OGB sherlock I think I'd have to order with plans to sell the extras. It's a shame j-hook storage is so awkward

Hmmm, I don't seem to be able to order this for some reason...

Nevermind, they didn't like my old account so I made a new one. Too bad you have to get 3 of these but at least the price is reasonable. I never bought the OGB version tho I don't expect this to be the same quality...

That's funny because I have absolutely hate those flared trumpet mouthpieces, very difficult to find one that is the right size flaring and diameter to be comfortable, and effective for me with proper airflow... Most of mine and the ones I've tried have totally sucked noodles lol

I'm not sure exactly what thick lollipop means, you mean the flat disc style? Not such a fan of those either, but it depends since there can be a lot of difference between them...

I agree this one is not so good, I don't know why it has that little rim, would be better just straight tube, but 16 mm is a bit wide so I would prefer if it was tapered a bit? Also if it is thick glass especially, that would help, a nice little pinch flat is comfortable I think, that is how my OGB triple right angle hook is, though it is very thick glass (like my phineas heady hook) so the mouthpiece could be even a bit more comfortable...

Mouthpieces are so tricky I think!

Haha yeah it really makes no sense for you to get one, nor me really, but I suppose if one of us got three and then sent to of them to two others that could be nice although that would increase the price...? For the two others at least I guess!

Yeah between you me and the boss we could get the three, together I suppose... Yingmin/Lumin aka genesis glass are pretty good reliable quality though, not in the same league as OGB of course, but pretty nice and thick I think for Chinese glass on DHgate?? The spike work actually looks better to me Even though the right angles are not as clean etc...

I did ask them, if they may be willing to sell just one, so I can do a review here and on the gate, I always suggest messaging these sellers via chat, they are often more than happy to work with you and adjust the cost to your order if you only want one item or want to mix and match other items or sizes they offer...

They actually have a really nice deep drop-down adapter, but it is turned so the female is like below the male for some reason, so I've been waiting for them to deplete the stock so I can have them make new ones more properly, though I am curious to try the existing one to see if it might actually work with what I have? Because there is really no way to know for sure by just looking at it...

Yeah I didn't give them the suggestions for the mouthpiece on the hook yet, since this is a new design for sale, I presume they have plenty of stock and are not going to want to modify the design for a while, but it could be worth mentioning!

Yeah, that connection looks a little weak. At the price it is looking worth a try to me. Out of 3 at least one should be decent. I will let you know...

Oh you are going to take the plunge?? Yeah I don't know I don't see anything wrong with the connection personally, can't tell just by looking at it, but looks pretty typical to me?

Does anyone know of a titanium or stainless steel J-hook with 14mm. I saw WizardStix but not sure it would work as a J-hook with flowerpot or Anvil

I agree that is probably not a 14mm joint. Haven't see other titanium hooks. It could be worth reaching out to Dangle to see if they have interest in supporting the DHV community. Never hurts to ask...

Yeah, I ordered it the other day. I don't have any j-hooks other than the sherlocky Grav one I originally got from Lotus which is 14mm, so this one with the nipples should be a decent piece to try out with the TM. ;)

I have always liked the look of the OGB one you helped design, but it was a tad expensive. I am sure it would be a lot higher quality than the DHGate one.
