    I went with the black! Picked up a bunch of extra Air plastic tipped stems for portability as well as the 60mm all glass!

    So happy to see AgraCan getting the business they so very well deserve! Good on you Jack! :tup:

    Forgot about the GonG! Got that too! :rockon:

    Truth though, i'm not even sure how well I will get on with the Solo 2. I always hated the restriction of the Solo and Air, but hoping that the dimples in the oven will improve my experience. When I got the Mighty/Crafty I RAVED about how incredible they were, but there was something I just did not like after over a year of using them exclusively. Along came the Grasshopper, which I bought 1/2 dozen, and when they worked, they made me forget about the Mighty or Solo. Unfortunately, they all have an expiry date, and not a long life expectancy. So since the Solo WAS my very first portable, about a 1/2 decade ago I think, I just had to pull the trigger on the 2, with an awesome sale like this. I won't be surprised if I sell it within weeks of use though! lol Just part of the VAS game I continue to struggle with in life. First world problems and all!

    It's not gunna be the best vape in the world compared to what we've used .. I think we both know that. But you know EXACTLY what you're getting. Smooth, flavorful, consistent vapor ... perfect for sipping and relaxing to while knowing you have amazing quality beneath your lips. It's trust in a brand plus a consistent experience.

    It does exactly what it needs to do at an exceptional and simplistic level.

    I see no reason to sell unless I want to move through the motions with less upfront cost moving to the next level. ... I know exactly what I'm buying.

    I just miss being able to sit back and puff on something without having to stir, twist, pack, click, smack, tap, ding, ring, ting or fling. I just want something that resembles the chillness of a joint.

    Plus that batter life and ruggedness oooweeeee.

    @biohacker did you buy those stems from Agracan? I couldn't find them on their site.

    I'm seriously thinking about selling my IQ and all its extras. After all the hype surrounding it, I still kept going back to my Arizer Air and now with the Solo 2 arriving in a few weeks, I don't think I'll ever go back to it....

    @AJS couldn't agree with you more! Your post is bang on. Solid and reliable, and a great session vape.

    That's fucking hilarious, neither could I! But if you scroll down to the bottom you will see the tab for page 2, and that's where they are. But to make it simple:

    https://agracan.com/vaporizers/replacement-parts?p=2

    :bang:

    AgraCan goes out on a limb here risking their asses to hook us up, and some people still just don't get it :doh:

    Hopefully the code no longer works.

    Spot on! Some guys care about others, some not I guess? They got theirs, I hope it brings them pleasure and doesn't cause others problems in the process. Other dealers, losing business to one guy not following the rules, are likely to object to Arizer (such has happened before with other makers), getting our new found 'great source' cut off (and therefore denied us all in the future).......in case the issues isn't clear enough?

    Public bragging seems dumb in those terms? If you care about not screwing up the opportunity for others. Not a kind thing to do for the Dealer by way of 'thanks'.

    "Killing the goose that lays those lovely gold eggs" as it were........

    @OF if you only new the record amount of PM's I received nearly outright demanding what I paid for my Solo 2... mind you some were very respectful, VERY, and I had no issues with those, but some were outright rude and selfish.

    Hopefully everything levels out, because AgraCan is now present on this forum as a retailer and I love nothing more than healthy competition, but at the same time I really like supporting the people like AgraCan who are mom& pop type of operations and not high volume. Their overheads are absolute peanuts, and are patient enough to be able to reap the rewards in time.

    So nice to have you in this thread @OF ! You are VERY wise beyond your years (not that I know what they are, but I know what they aren't)... not sure if that even made sense, but it did to me! lol

    Looking forward to the early adopter reviews from those who purchased direct from Arizer!

    I'm now starting to think Arizer didn't offer a 4/20 sale due to politics. And not celebrating a "weed holiday" or something.... just a thought anyway.

    If AgraCan broke the rules for retailers I'm glad I didn't order from them. It doesn't seem right IMO. Enjoy your units. I will order from Randy @PuffItUp

    It took business away from venders that play by the rules.

    Edit
    I see @agracan.com is a member here on FC.

    You're assuming that they broke the rules. Did they advertise anything below the MAP?

    No rules were broken by AgraCan. The only rules that were broken were by the members who didn't read the rules of the forum and reposted information.

    Now I know why some retailers bail on this site, and i've learned that sharing isn't always the best strategy to help a forum brother out.

    I definitely plan on enjoying my unit, without ANY guilt. I love Randy and PIU more than anything, what was his 4/20 deal on the Solo 2? And does he offer free shipping to Canada?

    Or vendors that are trying to make more profit. Nice to see AgraCan hook up the FC community! :rockon:

    Freebies and bonuses are a grey area.... so let's not even go there.

    Sad to say I have no trouble understanding that. A lot of demanding folks around these days, expecting others to drop what they're doing and take care of the most important person in the whole world. Notice how many ever bother to say 'please' or 'thank you'? Part of it I think, everyone is entitled to stuff these days, nobody wants the responsibility of course. You have my sympathy for sure. Remember, "no good deed goes unpunished".

    Thanks very much for the kind words, misplaced as they might be. I'm happy to help out folks when I can, and know I'm far from alone with that......you, for instance, could well be found guilty of that?

    I also can't shake the feeling you may have me confused for two other fellows?

    $20 to Paypal for the positive press, same as with @ataxian, right?

    Amen. If that's the case. Rewarding those who break the rules at the expense of those who follow them is a bit like the illegal immigration debate raging outside?

    While I'd welcome another Dealer (more options in the market is a good thing), I hope it's not at the expense of folks like PIU that have been supporting us so well for so long. I suspect I too will be giving Randy more of my money for a Solo II once he posts an offer I can't pass by?

    Ha you have no idea how long I took to order, trying to decide whether I should get Mystic Blue instead.
    Black was my default to begin with but a dark shade of blue would be welcome too, for its simultaneously stimulating/relaxing effects.

    Ultimately though: 1) I can't confirm the shade of blue from pictures; purple buds are more appealing to me than a purplish unit.
    2) Black = stealth...until I can enjoy my veggies without worries, this added comfort goes a long way. Feels like ya can't really go wrong with black, either way.

    @al bundy your alias is from my 2nd favourite sitcom of all time (1st being Seinfeld)! All good man, and since you have 3 Solos and a Solo 2 on its way, I hope you have a few claisens to hit all four at once? :brow:

    It would be legendary! And i'm pretty sure a first in the Solo world! Use the force...Quad Solo....

    The Solo has something that I don't get why it's happening and that's why I stayed away from it these last years no matter how great the rest of its talents are... When used as it's supposed to, with the stem in between draws, the first vapor that comes in the mouth after the short brake between two hits has a disgusting taste and aroma! I experience this so intense cause with the Solo I like to puff and let some vapor out of my mouth in the beginning (sometimes during the hit as well) to enjoy the taste and aromas and judge vapor production, like with most vapes. But with the Solo, that first draw is :puke:. Maybe it's the little vapor that sits in the stem between hits causing this? I don't know...
    And that's why I usually paired my Solo with a Vapor Lung. The taste through the Vapor Lung (and removing the stem between hits) is out if this world! Rivaling the best convection vapes that I have tried! Like the Hot Pod or Milaana! :drool::drool::drool: Still does with my Vapcap... :whip: If you find the draw hard let a Vapor Lung do the job instead of your lungs, you will be amazed! :nod:

    But why don't you also surrender yourself to an Omnivap buddy? I think it might be like a small Supreme you know... ;)

    And which is this sitcom please? :brow:

    It's stale vapor ... it happens with my Milaana if I leave vapor in the stem. Try getting a shotgun stem or taking in a lot of side air during your draw to just clear the stem without actually pulling new vapor in.

    Not into the vapcaps bro, I tried a couple and it's just not for me. The only vape my torch will see is the Supreme. Nothing will ever compare to that IMO.

    My experience with the Solo is probably different than most, because I used my mine nearly exclusively with gong and water tool. I have a bunch of videos posted of micro dosing with the Solo on my youtube channel (biohack9). It sounds like your temp was too high, or what @AJS said about stale vapour...conduction vapes can do that. Like I said, it's been a while, so i'm not even really sure how I will receive this new Solo. It might be a keeper, or I might get rid of it and buy a GH? :lol: Who knows....for now, I had no choice but to buy due to my Acquisition Syndrome Syndrome, right @Aimless Ryan ? :)

    With you there, I just couldn't get VC to give predictable hits over time. Concentrating on it (not something I like to have to depend on) improves it for me, but there are still 'surprises'.

    I've never tried Supreme, just didn't appeal I guess? But a personal favorite vape, and in the 'lighter powered' class, is VapMan. Very neat little hand made (in Switzerland no less) vape, using all natural materials, that has earned a very loyal following. You might check it out.

    Also worth honorable mention are the Vapor Genies. A different sort in that you add fire during the hit, but capable of some heroic duty. My favorite is 'the Big Bronze one'. Very cool, even with lots of use. It started out bright and shiny and is starting to look more like a statue in the park as the patina forms.

    Something for 'instead of Solo'?
