Why are drip tips so expensive?

    I've got both metal drip tips and Delrin, I prefer Delrin as it doesn't heat up during long draws and chain vaping and it tastes better to me.

    I've never noticed any problem with my stainless steel getting more than a little warm, but perhaps I don't vape as heavily as you.

    I do notice that drops tend to stick a bit to the delrin before going into the atty, whereas that problem never occurs with stainless steel.

    I guess that's why they have those choices. Everyone has different preferences.

    I would just try one of each, they are cheap enough to do this. I do prefer my extended delrin tip though. I have 3 short deltin tips and 2 short stainless steel tips. My extended delrin does me right.

    If you don't feel like sucking juice into your mouth or having to blow into your drip tip buy a Super-t. If you don't mind having a smaller hole, no funnel, and juice sticking into the drip tip buy a knock off.

    It's nice not to have to worry about that with my T-tip. Also doesn't Nhaler's price for shipping make it more expensive than a T-tip?

    I think it's becuz they are reusable indefinitely therefore they have to make money quick.
    I have 4 and have only used one...and I don't drip all that often except when trying new flavors (if I get lots of different flavs at once I might drip all day) OH and just a side note...on a kinda funny level....I don't recommend dripping and driving. Dripping and Driving BAD you can spill on your pants! LOL

    I got 3 nhaler tips for the price of one super t-tip (nhaler was having a special price when buying 3). The are kinda of tight when attaching them to the atomizer though.

    I most likely will purchase a super t tip when I purchase a precise. I feel like super t is the best when it comes to craftsmanship. I really really wanna buy a precise, but am limited on funds at the moment.

    I have a Super T stainess steel T-tip, which I really love. But I do notice that it's fairly difficult to remove from the atty. Anyone know of any tricks to this?

    A pair of pliers does a pretty good job. Just make sure you put a cloth or something over the drip tip so not to scuff it up.

    Twist to take them out instead of pulling straight off works for me. I do have super T tips and GP and nhaler and eastmall or somewhere like that. I still prefer the nhaler ones to all the others.

    I've bought drip tips from a few different places and today got my Super T Tip and love it, I was surprised to find it doesn't heat up like my other metal ones too, I also got a delrin one but like this stainless one better, you don't even need to blow into it to move the juice down :)

    How about using an empty cart?

    1. Take out the fuzz.
    2. Bite off the end (510s come right off).
    3. Possibly hollow it out.

    Free drip tip that doesn't look all phallic and that fits like a glove..!

    LOL no kidding... I'd be freaked out if I woke up and mine looked like a drip tip. I'm going to have nightmares about this now.

    I have 2 stainless steel ones from Super 6 and 2 Delrin from Nhaler. They either get stuck and almost impossible (use plyers) to remove or they just won't fit on the atomizers. I have completely quit using these and just use the the cap that comes on the atomizers and just remove the two black caps. I don't even drill them out. The eliquid just drips through the 2 holes.This has worked great.

    Never had a problem with my SS Super T tip getting stuck, fits in my EM attys beautifully and pops out with a twist without a huge effort.

    Ditto with my Super T delrin. Also for EM LR 510s and Joye 510s too.
