Hey guys, what do you think about this type of condenser? Planning to use on my 2" VM still.

i would suggest you wrap it with some SS scrubber to increase it's efficiency
it's a nice looking thing !!

Looks good, I assume 2" column? What's the length?
As Maheel said, a few scrubbers tossed in there will help slow the vapour speed and improve the efficiency of the unit.

2" diameter, 5 feet from keg to top of condenser . Not sure about scrubbers, it is very tight(not enough room left)

Cool, I meant what was the length of your condenser. But I can see from your photo it looks plenty long enough.
I found you only needed 100mm of a double helix condenser to knock down 2400W of power.
