The first drip tip I tried was aluminum but it wasn't very good for me because I have a ton of amalgam fillings and my whole mouth would taste metallic. I'm really liking the ones I got from Firebrand but was wondering about glass/pyrex ones. Have you tried glass? What is your experience? What's the best place to get them from? Pros/cons.?

I got the swirly ones from volcano not sure if they are glass or not but they work nice for me. Haven't noticed any odd flavors or anything.

I've heard really great things about the Pyrex drip tips. I'm definitely going to grab a couple sometime soon! I've heard that the drips slide down them very easily, no drips stuck in the tube, better air flow for a smoother draw, etc. Plus they look frikkin awesome!!

I was looking at these earlier. They look fantastic. Did you see the “slightly crooked” ones on huge sale? http://www.theecig.com/product_p/510-fslash-901 slightly.htm#27

I don't actually use them to drip. I like the Firebrand ones a lot but really want to try glass because it's sort of rule of thumb that glass is always much more hygenic and does not let off chemicals like plastics, for example. It's more curiosity.

I use them more to extend the carto so I minimize any 'back splash' of hot liquid. If you recall I'm the moron who has issues filling most cartos.

Drip tips are mostly an option. Honestly, unless you're dripping, you don't need one.

I have to say that Acrylic DT's and stainless steel are my fave, aluminum gives me a weird taste....i would not personally use a glass one due to the fact that i drop my pv at least twice a day :P

I use a Cherry Vape "Pawn" Dream Tip, which their website states don't fit Boge cartos...but that's what I use it on! Maybe I could see it's a slightly tight fit, but why wouldn't you want a tight fit?? Oh, and it is acrylic, which to me feels nice and not fragile like glass and not metallic tasting like aluminum. I can see stainless steel being better, but I still might expect that metallic feel on my teeth. FWIW, many say the design of the Cherry Vape Dream Tips are better at preventing the dreaded juice-in-da-mouth phenom.
