    I'm just happy they put a decent video out. As far as the lady employee.....I took it as she maybe that's what she likes to vape to? I thought it was sweet looking at the drawings and than seeing those water pieces produced. Looks like a solid unit and I could hear it clicking open and closed.

    I must admit I rather look at a pretty person (m/f) than a not so pretty person myself.

    T&A are just a bonus :rolleyes:


    I am one of the winners too btw, I think I was the first one even. Don't forget about me just because I'm patience pls :haw:


    So, SliM, has that video uploaded yet..? [​IMG]

    I just want to mention that Cortney introduced me to the artist she mentions at the end of the video, Ivan (www.ivanart.net), and he asked if he could do a caricature of me and I agreed of course:

    I told him to give me a smirk so he did. Great guy and a terrific artist.

    You should have seen her from the front. ;)

    ALRIGHT. SOOO. At my doorstep this morning was a package......

    As soon as I get my okay from Da Vinci, I'll post the pics. I CAN say confidently without using the vape yet... this is what spending $250 on a vaporizer should feel like. Da Vinci means business with this bad boy; and when I mean "business", I mean easily the most stylish/advanced portable out there.

    INITIAL OBSERVATIONS:

    - I felt like a secret agent when opening my package. Not only was there an awesome Da Vinci T-shirt, there was also an official Da Vinci black envelope sealed with their own stamp of approval. The contents of that envelope: "Top Secret Information" :)

    - The wait for packaging will be worth it. SO simple, yet very clean; again with the Da Vinci "stamp of approval" seal wrapped around the box like a ribbon. Think original Da Vinci box, except grey & with a window displaying the Ascent.

    - Even the inside of the box feels quality. There's two little flaps that pull up displaying your charger/accessories

    -Accessories look to include, a pick for stirring (shown in video), a sticker, instructions, 3 extra screens, two what seem to be rubber plugs, a long glass screen (shown in the bottom of the Ascent in Nikki's video), and two glass oil cans w/ rubber lids. The lids have little holes that allow your vapor to travel up the glass stem & mouthpiece.

    - The Ascent honest-to-god feels like the best portable on the market. They've really set the bar, just like I'd expected. It feels VERY sturdy. I got the black croc skin leather version... and it's really sexy. The metal on the sides of the vape make it feel similar to a phone... I could easily see this being mistaken for a phone actually.

    - What's interesting is, there is no "clicking" noise like described a few posts earlier. It's rubber on the top/bottom, so when pulling out your glass mouthpiece/screen, you have to use your fingernail. It's pretty easy, and I was able to hold my mouthpiece and shake it rapidly without it falling out... so the rubber was a solid design choice; it'll give it some shock absorption in a fall as well, although you won't see me doing any drop tests.

    - When you hit the power button, you get a startup screen similar to powering on a phone. It says "Ascent" then flashes "By Da Vinci"... then you're at your home screen.

    Sorry should of said "pretty face", not T&A.

    Not the video I was referring to.

    mod note: Please avoid back-to-back posts, use Edit instead. Two posts merged.

    So any ad that features a lady demoing a product is construed as T&A? There are a LOT of T&A ads out there but this surely isn't one of them and what's wrong with having a lady with a pretty face demonstrating your product? Would you have preferred this:

    And Paka, along the same lines, damn man, if you're gonna represent FC in a vid, don't fucking look like you just rolled out of bed. ;)

    Did somebody say T & A? :D

    That little guy in the video was the best part. He reminds of a mini Steven Spielberg :razz:

    Whoa, such aggression! If had known that's what I would be doing I... probably wouldn't have done anything different. That's how I look, dude. Now I'm off to hunt up that mug of yours in the Classifieds and poke fun at it. :evil:

    Maybe there are three of us. The packaging is tight. I will be using it this weekend and giving my feedback as usual.

    AWESOME way to start a day!

    (I may or may not have just wet myself a little. :rofl:)



    Questions:

    • What are the three extra screens? Obviously not the glass stem piece with the built in screen as you mentioned that later. Metal screens? Glass???
    • Rubber plugs be the mouthpiece cover?
    • No extra stems/straws (the extractable glass)?
    • No "cute little carrying satchel"?

    Presume there was a wall-wort in there.


    Then there is further action on the front panel to engage the heating element, correct?

    Haha, was that you in the video Paka? You look a lot friendlier than I've always imagined you would :D

    He reminds me of Tommy Chong.. :spliff:



    ps: thanks for the review THR, some pics would be awesome :tup:

    I'm still torn between the all black & the crock-model myself :shrug:
