This is not a competition!
My silver OG just gave up the ghost after four years of very heavy use as a first choice daily driver. Just got its replacement, another brand new silver OG with all fresh buttons, battery, everything - from PIU (asked for and got a free jyarz instead of the grinder, thanks PIU).
I have the blue Solo II, but missed the OG as soon as it stopped working. I am thinking of stashing another new one away for the day this one goes. They're so ingrained into my habits.
Long live Solo OG!
Amen, Brother! I'm with you there. Only for me it's love of the real OG version, the 'true PA' ones. I got several returns from PIU 'in the day', gave a couple of new vapers a solid low price vape (they were $60 to 80 IIRC) and have (I think) four total now (two originals, two returns). Plus one new model ('charge while using'). Two are out on loan, one in the 'bug out bag', one on the deck in routine use and one hidden away in the box as a full kit 'in case'.
Hopefully I have enough backups for the backups for this mission critical bit of gear. For sure that's my intent. I'm sleeping soundly at least.
A great product for sure. I don't want to risk being without one either.
The Solo OG with the vortex stem from planet vape in Canada has very low draw resistance, and now I am experiencing all of the updates since I my first one back around 2013. I can tell the difference right away with the new one. This new Solo OG seems to have more power - could be because its new and I was adjusted to the four year old unit, but I replaced the battery in the oldie just abit before it died. Draws off the new one are so easy and strong on setting 5, like the oldie on 6.
The Solo crowd is so mellow I love it, like Volkswagen beetle owners or something.
I use my OLD 6 year SOLO.
Thing will not die?
PHANTOM COOKIES + BENT STEM + LEVEL 4 = VERY CIVILIZED
My CANNABIS is kind of COURSE ground.
I will try a FINE grind just because it's Satruday?
Of COURSE you should Bump 'n GRIND, it is the weekend after all!
Enjoy your saturday with the SOLO if that be your choice of weapon.
Sorry I patronised you Ataxian when I thought you were looking for encouragement to go for the Floweprot, without understanding enough about your condition.
I havent been thinking straight lately, and misread the situation, thinking I was doing the right thing and being helpful. Dumb me!
@Baron23 had the right idea. Thank you for always being a voice of sound logic and reason for us younger puppies Baron.
@ataxian I promise I will try never to patronise you again, sorry if I seemed a little insensitive and non-understanding of your needs and limitations.
Two things we try very hard to do around here is not encourage @ataxian and never talk about his condition.
Sorry you didn't get the memo.
It's not really his fault he's the way he is you know.........they say.
Thanks I respect that, it is purely from a practical suggestion point of view and my own naive/innocent oversightedness. Understanding others is one of the most important things in my book, nothing is to be ashamed off or tabbooed especially in relation to a more purposeful understanding for all round benefit.
I swear these edibles bring out the philospher in me you know!
I'm really surprised how much this one measured dose has got me right now. It is only sugar leaf coconut oil, one of the 3 batches I made up recently. Just had a 3 gram dose (0.23 grams worth of leaves roughly) and very stoned!
Yesterday I had 8 grams in total- 2 in afternoon, 4 at 10pm, 2 more grams a little later.
Only about 0.6 grams of sugar leaves worth, but the way I make it is so potent for weight.
Folowed by 2 Omnivap bowls of sativa buds, that was good, VERY affected!
Right now I feel too stoned to vape anything, wish I had had a smaller dose now.
Hey @Alexis it's all good. (has said by many tribes)
I've had a great life so far!
I can be flipped for sure!
Guy's like @Baron23 keep's me in check.
I have alway's been a thrill seeker!
Today I have to keep it in perspective (I TRY)
I need CANNABIS to survive.
Sometime's I like EXTREME so I use something stronger!
SATURDAY & SUNDAY's I SOLO on the hour.
READING and STUDY in GENERAL I treat as my new sport for my mind.
CANNABIS is very healthy!
SOLO is all I need sometimes. (GOLDIE LOCK'S)
I think I might be CIVILIZED?
I did not take this photo!
Now I do have DREAM QUEEN surfer's OG!
The PINK JARZ is the DREAM QUEEN for the SOLO!
Rimless Basket Screens work a charm in a Solo Stem! (Here seen with Install Tool, that makes installation a breeze).
As the weeks and months turn into years, I realise just how much smoking this has saved me from. Some would disagree, but I count buying Solos among the most beneficial things Ive done.
would 150 cdn taxes and shipping included for a solo be a good deal? I have the desktop arizer Q extreme and am happy with it although a bit harsh on the throat so thinking of trying something like the solo thru tweed and as a new customer get a discount reflecting the all in price of 149.16 Or would I be better with the solo 2 ?
Puffitup is 135 best service around.
PIU is great - the 135 price is the lowest I have found from a reputable dealer, and the customer service is the best too
Actually it is 134.99 even cheaper
thats u.s dollars though right? plus taxes and shipping duty etc ?
Don't buy from any other than a factory authorised dealer or you might get a knock-off rip off.
Indeed it is, where are you located?
159.99 + decent 4 piece grinder
After conversion and likely duties this ain't a bad price! 150 all in is great too! Reach out and see if there active promos. I'd vouch for this vendor - great deal on my Crafty.
As to Solo v Solo II, if you're on q budget you'll be very happy with the PG. If you're looking at a Solo II and can bump up costs a bit, I'd really recommend the crafty/Mighty. All depends on needs tho.
Planet of the Vapes has the Solo for the same price/$134.99, free shipping and you get an extra freebie (Tightvac container) .....
Bottom line is you can't go wrong with either PIU or PotV. I order from both these retailers and have always been super happy. The customer service is amazing!!!!
159.99 + decent 4 piece grinder.]
That looks pretty good, I paid a touch under $170 Cdn for each of mine. The bases on Solos crack, I have 3 and 2 of them are cracked. What you do and how serious that is, is up to the individual. I put tape on mine.
Maybe I'll phone Agracan a little later and ask what they've got left, either Arizer is just not making them anymore or they scaled back to give the new ones market prominence.
Duct tape holds the universe together.
Reach out to PlanetVape.ca - they are a site sponsor and always have uber competitive deals and packages available.
The PV Solo II code still works if you can swing an extra $100. Comes with 14mm and 18mm gongs, a space case grinder, extra screens and end caps and free shipping
Agracan's website says waiting for stock but could be taken care of by the end of the week. I you resister and check the box that says contact me when the price drops they should email you when they post a sale.
