    Default Provari and driptips

    This thread may be moved since it doesn't really involve the provari but wanted the provarian replies!! I have driptips ranging from a couple bucks to 10 bucks and just decided to get a couple glass tips from tripsy--the most I have paid for a driptip!! Do y'all think the tip affects the flavor, vape, etc. other than the way it may feel in your lips due to the type of material it is?? Do you notice any difference in the quality of vape?

    My favorite feel is the longer metal tips. I like the cold metal on my lips. This one is from cigtechs..... I think it was $10. I got a brass one too. Ergonomics is important as well. And it just sits and seals well on my lips.

    I've never noticed where drip tips affect taste or performance in any way. They simply enhance appearance, as far as I'm concerned. Metal drip tips tend to get hot though. Not from normal use; from using them outside when it's hot.

    My favorite is Tru-Stone. They don't get hot, aren't too cold when you first use them and they just seem to make for a clean vape. I usually get a metallic taste with metal tips.

    ETA: I love the glass tips I have too!

    I just received my 1st stainless tip & I love it - besides it's super Kool looking. Liked it enough that I ordered 2 more, have to have back-ups to my back-up.

    At one time I was a drip tip collector. My preference is for pyrex or Tru-stone for the way they feel on my lips. I also like the shapes and appearance of the ones that I have. As previously said above, these do not transfer heat from an attachment like an RBA which can generate a fair amount of heat from continued use.

    I've not noticed that tips can affect flavor, but can affect comfort on the lips, and the longer variety can affect the vapor temperature. I consider tips to be a way to express personal expression by their appearance, and a beautifully designed tip allows me to enjoy my vaping experience more.

    Above is my favorite pyrex tip I got from Sagewood Glass shown above on my VMod, and a few pyrex tips received from Hot Vapes.

    My Tru-stone collection consists of the white Bull Box Mods tip shown on an AGA on my white SB, and two from Drip Tip Designz which are currently on my two AGA-T2's to color match the pyrex tubes (pic shows Cherry Vape Dream Tips on the AGAs).

    Although not a huge fan of metal tips, I do use the SS Freudian Drip Tip from Pink Spot Vapors because of its unique shape/style; its longer length allows the vapor to be cooled before it reaches my mouth. The long slender tip in the second pic is from My Freedom Smokes. My favorite tips and most used on my cartotanks are the Knucklheads, they are comfortable and adjustable and come in handy while vaping & driving. They come in multiple colors and are relatively inexpensive.

    They all look fantastic but I gather they are more of a novelty and a piece of conversation other than ones issues with steel, etc. I am having a custom phiniac tank with orange sandblasted dolphins with the teal caps and to finish the top with something "special". Ordered one of trippys tips that appeared to have some orange and blues, we will see...please let me know if you see a tip that would just be awesome on my new Miami dolphins tank....wake up Ocelot and hunt this one of a kind driptip to tie it all in. You can see the tank on phiniacs home page as a model-showing a teal driptip, looks ok as I ordered it but want a more dolphins color scheme. Wake up Oce, time to hunt!! Willing to splurge for stone,glass, something nice!!

    Both Sagewood Glass and Drip Tip Designz will do a custom tip for you.

    Pick a shape and the colors you want.

    Last I checked Sagewood's site was down for maintanance, but Drip Tip Designz has a few tips in teal and orange/red in their Tru-stone and Resin categories.
