You mean, like the one on my avatar? :)

I put the hole on the edge coming out at a 45degree angle, so it would melt the sugar cube. Because I like sugar with Lucid, which is the absinthe in the avatar photo.

Just ordered the Stainless version of this at Catskills Cellars for $50. Affordable, practical, and pretty.

You should be delighted.

I would be. :)
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

Classy.

Just like the place and people you ordered it from. :thumbup:

A lot of businesses could learn about customer relations from Julie.

That, and it would feel funny to louche non Lucid with a Lucid dripper. The video was grape flavored Lucid, so it was OK.

Dangit Miguel! I ordered the Lucid one cause you said it was so cool. Now am i gonna have to get this one too? :rolleyes:

The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

What if you have guests? :)

I never considered the silver one because of cost/maintenance, but it is more 'fitting' for some of my favorite selections. Now with a stainless one, the price & practicality made it an easy decision.

To be honest, if Julie had this a month ago.....what Lucid dripper? :laugh:

Anyhow, the Lucid dripper and spoon go great with Lucid, beet and grape flavored. :)

After several months of use, I must endorse the Lucid dripper. It makes the thickest, loveliest louches. Compared to the Stainless Steel one, it has a slower flowrate, all you hear is the water splashes, and the legs are a bit more stable. It has become my goto louching device.
The all metal one is pretty, does a good job, and puts on the best show for noobs with all the clinking noises it makes.

I must endorse the Lucid balancier.

Yep

I ordered two of the stainless steel balanciers from Absinthe Devil. One worked beautifully while the splitter on the other didn't quite extend fully across the "seesaw" and therefore it leaked from one side to the other, defeating the "seesaw" action. Absinthe Devil made good by refunding me for the one defective balancier (great customer service!). Since they were out of stock I ended up ordering a balancier from Lucid. I love the way it looks, but the design seems prone to the water scoops getting hung or sticking to the plastic brackets that support the seesaw. I've toyed with the idea of trying to slightly bend the sides of each side of the scoops just to narrow them a tad. To those of you who own this model balancier, any thoughts?

Eventually it will break in and be more reliable. Just make sure it freely moves before starting. As a stainless steel piece, it should be malleable. The only risk would be to misalign it to the mating parts. You can just remove it for regular use as songcatcher does.

Yep. Put just a dab of olive or any food grade oil on the hinges to looses up the action until it gets broken in. Or take it out all together. You'll find It to be a fine instrument. :arrr:

That's what he said.

But only in reference to that last sentence, not the previous two. :twitchsmile:

I'll try the olive oil idea soon. Thanks for the advice!
