If you happened to take a five-minute nap, or even blink for an especially long period of time, we have a public service announcement for you: the nail is dead. Yes, dead. Titanium, ceramic, whatever, they’re on their way out. Don’t worry; the rigs are still safe. Your customers are just topping them with bangers now. Quartz bangers, to be exact, and they’re throwing down some serious cheddar for the good ones.
Take, for example, the new Omni-Q Mega from Santa Cruz Shredders. You’d think the retail price of 199.95 would induce some serious sticker shock, but turns out, that’s not the case at all, especially for the high-end customer who understands the concept of value. That’s probably because the Omni-Q Mega is comprised of 99.999% pure quartz, features a 26mm main dish with a 15mm inside dish, 2mm thick sidewalls, 3mm thick bottom pad, a beveled top lip for the perfect seal, and a polished joint. What’s more, it’s 100% American made. For the discerning chronnoisseurs, we’re talking incredible flavor and barely a fraction of the price of their Illadelph. For the retailer, we’re talking about a clear case of price trumping volume. Everyone wins. Carb cap sold separately.
