They do say it'll wear off the tip, but that was fast. Is the coating on the rest of the nozzle helping?
The tip size and so the print quality is still consistent. You only lose this glossy finish of the top layer.
As far as I can tell, drops and blobs only stick loosely and can easily be wiped off.

In testing with eSun PETG I needed to bump my print temp by 5-10c else layers were de-laminating. I also just got some Prusa Orange PETG so swapped over to that and did another quick print (visualiser). Looks good and as you can see there was no build up on the nozzle. Next up is a Benchy so we will see how this goes.

I also noticed the smell (not unpleasant) when heated up for the nozzle install but now it is fine.

I got some blobs on the nozzle in the Benchy print (so canned it and also slowed it down). The blobs pealed off easily as the nozzle cooled down which is nice.

So the benchy finished and looked pretty good with no blobs or zits. I put back on the sock but the nozzle looks clean. So I'm pretty happy with the Nozzle X so far .... but you do you to adjust your print settings.

cool, thanks for posting your experience thus far. It's definitely on my list. I some rolls of ColorFabb Woodfill i'd like to print with, but my lord did it cause a lot o problems after I did a small 1 hr print. Had to do some cold pulls, etc. I know its highly abrasive, so I won't be printing more with it until I get something like the Nozzle X/Hardened steel nozzle.

I'll install mine tonight and print PETG. I also have a Dyze tungsten carbon nozzle waiting to be played with. Sometimes it's nice to not fiddle and just get some printing done :mrgreen:

I have been experimenting with mine for a couple of days now. My main reason for upgrading was to improve my PETG results. I am getting results similar to what Nathan is describing. With temperatures dialed in to get good results without stringing, I have completely eliminated any burned black blobs from my PETG prints.

This nozzle also has don a great job with PLA and even seems to have improved the quality of flexible material prints.

So far it looks like money well spent...
