    I'm just sitting tight for Friday. I think after the teaser they posted on FB hinting at the 21st, if they don't release it by then, people will explode.

    Just got a mass email that dv is fixing things. Read it if ya want to.
    Dear Valued Customer,

    We are happy to update you with the latest launch info of the Ascent Vaporizer by DaVinci. After extensive testing and feedback from industry experts, we have identified an improvement we wish to bring forth on this initial release. The Ascent Vaporizer will now feature a "vapor seal lock" that tightens the air seal around the bowl, which allows the chamber to aspirate with greater vapor density.

    We want you to know our commitment to building the ultimate vaporizer is at the forefront of our mission. We are confident that these improvements will continue to raise the bar in vaporizer technology.

    Feel free to give us a call anytime, or shoot us an email and we'll do the best to accommodate.

    If you've received this email, it is because you are on the pre-registration list for the Ascent by DaVinci. Once we know product is on the way, you will receive an additional email at this address, announcing the on sale time and a code for your Free Gift with purchase. Note that demand may exceed supply, so registrants will be notified in the order received.

    Yeah, got to agree with lwien. It does not look like Friday is likely. They just sent an e-mail about a new revision they are making

    (EDIT - deleted copy of e-mail because Dreamerr posted it as I was typing it in :))

    I doubt they will get it changed and have shipments ready for Friday. I hope I'm wrong, but this sounds like more than a day or two delay...

    I am pretty OK with it being another month or so as long as I'm still on the pre-order list :p Unexpected bills made it so I probably won't be able to pre-order it but I really want that GonG adapter for my hurricane :rockon:

    So gotvape was saying...

    I wonder if they had units shipped to them, and they now are going to ship them back? Or they were planning on getting them this week to ship out? Either way, looks like it doesn't matter now. Obviously people aren't getting them by the end of this week.

    Lol hopefully GV won't decide to send out the shipment that they just got (if they got it at all) to make a quick buck before the new version. :\

    I wonder if the mod to vapor density is going to be on/off easily. Some people will like easy airflow draw, others some milkshake draw. Because IMO, vapor density in some cases comes with airflow restriction.
    Hope I'm wrong...

    I doubt davinci sent sub-par units to any retailer to sell, regardless what GV says. they may have released some units for reviewers and contest winners, but I would be very surprised if they would allow affiliates to sell a product they don't feel is ready for prime time.
    Davinci has said the first to get the products will be the first people on their own pre reg list, before GV (and any other retailers)
    Bottom line, I personally don't believe anything anyone says about shipping unless it comes from davinci.

    Considering recent history, even that's questionable. :shrug:

    Wow a porn star to hype the Ascent? I feel like their marketing plays to the lowest common denominator.Personally if I didn't know anything about the Ascent, I would look at others because using sex to sell something makes me think sub-par product.I dont care that she does xxx movies, but I dont think a medical device requires this type of mouth breather advertising.

    Carl's Jr. makes a pretty good burger, eh?

    And Calvin Klien doesn't make sub-par underwear and sex in advertising is nothing new. Hell, they even used it to sell valve caps.........circa 1921:

    I agree with the sentiment, but not exactly the terms? Sadly, there are bean counters who can no doubt make a case for such ads being effective, and it's a short step to 'you need to do this if you want to succeed in the market'. It does sell, and well.

    And let's remember that an important part of their customer base is made of testosterone driven young recreational users..... They got their rights too you know, just ask? And they have the 'disposable income' the bean counters crave.

    To some extent, 'the fleas come with the dog'?

    For myself, I hope to look past the distractions and make a rational purchase decision based on credible user feedback.....right here.

    I don't know about the universal valve caps, but I bet Pipes could make a really nice PV (Personal Vaporizer) out of one of the "Handy Metal Boxes" they now come in.

    :p

    What's a medical device to you, for many, is a recreational device for others and as a recreational device, sex is just as much at home with a vape as it is for beer.

    What DV should have done is to put her into a sexy nurses outfit and kill two birds with one stone. :cool:

    ^^ hmm spam? since I'm canadian and live in ontario I might just go with the torontovaporizers route since they have a free grinder I can use. I'm sure the grinder it provides is way better than mine plus I think shipping is faster ;) they quoted july 15th but everyone is speculating at this point.
