I prefer 510 drip tips over 810, simply because of the feel. 810 drip tips feel like I’m trying to kiss the exhaust pipe of a Volkswagen. Of course, with the smaller diameter of the 510 comes a little more flavor as well, so…bonus!
I’ve become very partial to the resin tulip shaped variety from FT. The ones I prefer I can’t seem to find at the moment, but it’s the one on the right in the pic.
I prefer wide bore DTs, both for 810 and 510’s. I find the mouthfeel not quite satisfying on 510s. Of course athetics are everything so on some tanks and RDAs I have to use the smaller 510s or they just look weird. I don’t like glass, metal or ultem and prefer a swirly resin or solid black. I usually measure my favorites with calipers so I can get an idea of size before I order. Usually “Goon/Kennedy style” does it for me.
I prefer a DT 18-22 mm. I tend to prefer a 510 but hate the bloody adapters. My favorites are hybrid stone and stainless, but will reduce myself to resin. I hate those short fat little tips, just makes things too hot.
I was in the 510 camp for a long time. Accumulated a shitload. Everything from tips with air flow control to the goose-neck DT’s that swiveled an’ shit. With the advent of the 810 it took me a minute to get used to the size, but luckily I adapted a wee bit better than @paingawd did. (Dude that was funny as hell BTW!) As of right now my preference is for thicker 810’s that have a slight taper inside going down to the top cap. And with enough height so I’m not sticking part of the atty in my mouth. Who the hell thought up those stubby tips anyway?
I’m an MTL vaper, 510 drip tips with longer slender bore are always the best regardless of the material.
Now when it comes to material, PMMA and Delring are my favourites.
Least favoured are metal drip-tips.
I’m gonna take a stab and guess he was refraining from making an innuendo based on your phrasing of, “With the advent of the 810 it took me a minute to get used to the size, but luckily I adapted a wee bit better than @paingawd did.”
