    My order shipped! I only bought one cause i'm broke, but i think I chose well:

    'The glow in the dark glass is neat, and they don't produce it
    anymore which makes this tip ULTRA rare. It can be charged up with a
    U.V. light source and will glow for some time after that. The
    Dichroic glass is Green/Blue/Purple depending on which direction it is
    viewed from.


    due to arrive saturday. Hooray!

    I don't have one yet. But, am thinking if they custom blow, it might be a way to get a mouthpiece that really fits tightly in the 3 mL syringe mod from Stormy's Vapor Cellar. Many people make their own. The 510 tips fit, but are not really a tight fit. I've lost both a shorty clear & reg length clear tips because they fall off/out easily. But, they would have to make to spec or test on their own to get the tip right for the BD 3 mL syringe. Far as I know nobody is servicing this market. JMHO

    Cheers,

    My tip got here in two days... this thing looks SO cool! Seriously. Will take pics in day time because all i have is a webcam, and i want to wait for good light to capture the detail.

    It's a bit tight in my bauway atty, but it fits, and that's all that counts.

    For something that ISNT glass; you should look into a DT from Volcanocigs.com. All their attys are slightly bigger, so the tips fit more snuggly.

    EDIT: got that backwards. You would need to buy your atty from them- so it fits better in your current DT's



    On the glass tips: oh I SO want one. I just know I'd accidentally bite the thing and it would prolly shatter in my mouth :p

    I'm disappointed. I emailed Bert 3 days ago and no response. Was hoping to hear back from him faster than that.

    A few thoughts I emailed; May as well post here:

    How about a 306 drip tip? You can make them pretty big with great results-- the Cannon from cherry vape is the most functional design, currently, and it's about an inch and a half long.

    And speaking of cherry vape, I really like the feel of their Pawn in my mouth. A glass tip with that sort of 'nub tip' design would be awesome, even if it had to be a bit chunkier. Just think of it as a 'lip rest', i guess.

    And when will the next round of tips be up? I have money set aside in my paypal treasury :)

    I've not heard back regarding mine either Brutus, he may just be busy making the tips, the e-mails I have received from him were quite professional

    I would also like to apologize to the OP if I completely derailed his thread; I'm sure he didn't post to promote another glass blower!

    just sent an email to Bert asking for an estimate on a design based on the ones I've seen on the site. It probably won't be cheap, but I'm not really about cheap. I'm about sweet looking stuff that performs really well. Can't wait to hear back. It'll be a week or so before I can commission one, but I'm looking forward to it.

    I think by the OP seeing our reactions in his thread he gets the knowledge that YES there is a place for hand-blown tips!

    Oh sure, but the Open Lab place is the only site I've ever found with the kind of hand blown glass I was looking for. I wish that more places had em, but openlab has the right idea to make a few and post them, and the rest would be commissioned individually and custom made.

    Edit: I'm not the OP of this thread but I HAVE been looking for glass drip tips for.... about 83 days lol.

    picture is crap, obviously. But this is, without a doubt, the coolest e-cig accessory I own.

    These tips, in fact, are the coolest accessory on the e-cig marketplace today. I challenge anyone to find something cooler.

    I don't think he checks email much. I sent an email to his paypal address, too, and haven't received a response.

    Glassblowers; what do you expect ;)
