Considering a new J-head 12 highflow

Post by d1rron » Sat Jun 22, 2019 11:12 pm

I'm currently running a Prometheus v2 and I've liked it so far, but I'm looking at j-heads at hotends.com and they have a new all-metal that looks great. I've been wanting to try a J-head, but was just wondering if anyone has experience yet with the J-head 12 highflow. It's a bit pricey, but it sounds like a great hot end. Like I said, I've been happy with my prometheus v2, but I want to try some other hot ends because I can only really compare to the stock hot end on my Rostock Max v2.

Anyway, I'm thinking about the 0.4mm J-head 12 highflow and I print a lot of PLA. I realize the original J-head is perfect for PLA, but I do want the flexibility of printing higher temp stuff without having to swap hot ends (no easy swap setup yet for me). That said, if the J-head 12 highflow isn't great for PLA then I might not want it. From what I've read, though, it sounds like it'll do at least as well as my Prometheus v2 (I'm not sure though).

Anyway, thanks!

I've never used the newer J-heads from hotends.com, however the designer knows his sh*t when it comes to hot end design. :)

I've only heard good things. I'll probably pull the trigger when I have the money to blow and if there's nothing out there yet I'll post how it goes. Lol
