    What is it with Cherry Vape driptips that make them a hit with Pinoys.

    I confess, I am a CVDT collector. I love the feel of smooth acrylic on the lips, the varied colorful swirls that can be used for whatever mood you're in. The option of polishing the driptip making it gleam like a precious gem. It can even give the illusion of improving taste of your eliquid (ok that's taking it a bit too far.lol)...but I would never pay 10,000 pesos for a single DT or trade a Provari for it. It just boggles the mind how popular these driptips are.

    Since Cherry Vape reopened shipping to the Philippines, I've been ordering my tips directly from them. So much cheaper. Even ordered the limited edition Ming Merlot :facepalm:

    hmmm. Am pinoy but have never seen these. As a vaper, I try to be polite when I see a fellow vaper outside and try not to stare at his gear but end up staring anyway hahaha :)

    They are nice looking, but 10,000 pesos? well, on a side note, I'll be in manila, somewhere in the paranaque/alabang area next week and I was wondering what's the best B&M store in town? any suggestions?

    Depends what you are looking to buy, hardware or accessories/liquids. I would suggest Greenhills Shopping mall, since they have a few B&M's in one mall. The problem with some shops here is that some of them carry only certain products if they are in a certain "group" of hardware makers. If you are looking for any particular devices it might help in narrowing down which shop would be best to visit. If you are in Alabang there is a The Joint Vape Shop/Chief Vapers @ South Station Filinvest and if you could go a little further south there is Smiley Vape shop in San Pedro and and Vape Republic Lounge @ Paseo in Santa Rosa. St.Francis Square in front of Mega Mall is also a mall with a couple of well known shops. So many B&M's in and around metro manila...don't hesitate to PM me if you need any help.

    I'm kind of surprised - I would have thought the chocolate flavors would have been the most popular with the Pinoys/Pinays. When I was working over there, I knew if I ever wanted maximum effort from my students, I just had to put some chocolate on the table. :p

    Halo Belgium cocoa is a big hit here...me personally I dont like chocolate vapes...

    Just saw someone selling a jack-o-lantern cvdt for 7k pesos on one of the buy and sell pages. That's just crazy. Almost 200 bucks for a piece of plastic that will not survive most drops while attached to an atty. I couldn't justify spending another 5-600 pesos after breaking my second cvdt after only a 2 foot drop from my couch to the floor, let alone at the price of another mod and rba combo.

    What's even crazier is that some chump would take that 7k bait.

    Thanks man. That's the Ming Merlot. Only 125 ever made. One of the few aluminum drip tips they sell.

    Exactly, I have seen and heard where Provari's were swapped for a CVDT. Don't get me wrong, I like their tips...I think I'm just a little too rough with some of my mods to use them as everyday tips though. My next Cherry purchase will probably be either the alum or a SS ming.
     
: halo, provari
