    Dreamerr, please post your opinion after trying the PVHES. I'd be curious to hear how it works out for you. I do follow your logic about having spare stems. Theyre bound to break somehow.

    turbo is one big hole that you cover with a screen.

    I don't think that Arizer sells that piece separately. Maybe you can shoot them an e-mail and they might send a replacement out to ya. Or you can PM me and I can send you one for free, I have two and don't use or want them.

    thanks for the replies guys, appreciate it. so just to get things straight, i'm not going to need anything other than a few screens to keep avb from getting into my mouth, right?

    Anything else besides the screen to optimize the SOLO? I just want everything in order and optimal for when I crack open the box and hit my SOLO for the first time

    Dude well I was in Amsterdam now and gotten a stock stem, when you have no screens you just need to finger pick your herb and not grind it, as long it is not too small you won't need screens...maybe little particles will enter your mouth but that's nothing.... but if you put a screen you enable yourself to have more efficiency when you're vaping...the purpose of double screening is that nothing falls into the heater.

    Exactly.
    If you use the wood stem you can do it easily... with the original PVHES it was a bit harder maybe because Ed Wood Stem supply prefect sized screens and the metal chamber is designed for a more easy screen picking... but that's hardly a difference...

    But like m0sh said before, you'll get very little particulate, if you use little popcorn pieces of bud rather than ground.

    A domed screen is a screen thats been bent/formed into a dome/cup to be inserted into a Solo stem. You can use screens in your stems to alter the volume, allowing you to more efficiently vape less herb.

    Neither...just use a q tip and you then put it in the stem and vape :)

    Good question. I'm a driller. In fact, I bought me a new diamond dremel tip yesterday. The deal is.. they don't say in the manual, "Lift your stem up a bit here and there for positive results". But they should. The drilling thing is just doing a variation of this. More airflow mean you can jack up the heat a bit, giving you more vapor and a more even browning of the herb... potentially.

    It's more about taste than any lack of function, per se, in the initial setup. Folks around here seem to like options and mods. Vapists tend to be like golfers who want the right club for the shot.

    Hot chocolate. It really works. Why waste it?

    I tried this a couple weeks ago but i did something wrong for sure. The milk started to get clotty and with cream, and i couldn't remove all the resin out of the stem. Did i use too high of a temperature?

    I filled with milk until it barelly covered the stem. Did you use a lot of milk?

    I went with hot chocolate in the end. It's a rare treat for me, its just easier and quicker to clean in ISO.
