    I have researched countless reviews on FF, Pinnacle, Solo, Pax, and Ascent. I am looking for the best tasting vapor as my #1 and am willing to spend the money for the quality. I would use it daily multiple times. Great things on all of these but which one wins the taste category?
    Some have said the ascent has a little rubber taste to it which has turned me off if this is the case. I was set on a Pax originally before finding all these others, but the constant cleaning in order for it to work properly worries me. I am open to any advice on any of these. Love my v-tower at home, but please help I am tired of rolling jays for the road and want to pull the trigger.

    I'm confused. Your post says 'willing to spend the money', but the thread title says 'no budget'??

    Edit: Oh well, I choose Solo.

    Do you need stealth or not?

    The Solo has a worst taste than the FF but it has 6x the autonomy. I would go Solo for autonomy alone, FF if taste is what you need.

    If stealth is not important i would consider the Lotus.

    Sorry, I meant no budget as no limit to spend. I see alot that say I am on a budget.

    Edit: Oh well, I choose Solo.[/quote]
    Thank you for the info. Stealth is somewhat important. I just like to be able to use it in the car without drawing alot of attention.

    They are both on the bigger side... but the FF is more stealthy.

    The Lotus uses a jet lighter so it is less easy to hide

    From what I've read, the ff is what i would suggest. Since money is no object, go check out the minivap thread. It had a portable version.

    Thermovape cera, there is not another vape on the market that can match it for clean vapor taste, totally inert materials and quality construction, its not cheap and its not the eaisest vape to use either, but once you get the technique right it hits well and tastes awesome. All you can taste is bud, there is nothing else for you to taste. Also the vapor pathway is very effective at breaking down large vapor spores (ok not spores? droplets? particles) into smaller ones. Recent FC thinking has lent towards smaller vape particle size being more effective at being absorbed into the body. This is the principle behind the sublimators effectiveness, and the reason the volcano has a reputation for harsh vapor.

    EDIT: the best thing about the cera is that in no way does it look like something you use to get high, ive used it in public and while driving, i just say its an e cig and nobody thinks anything of it.

    That's impressive, that you've been able to compare it to every vape on the market :spliff:

    I've never used the cera so it would just be speculation, not even an informed opinion.
    But the cleanest-tasting portable convection vape I've experienced is the firefly.

    My vote would be for the Solo... Just devise methods of stealth (hidden in a drink cup, tube appearing to be drink straw, or other...) that suite your usage, and you'll be set!

    If ever there were a subjective thread...

    For the sake of conversation, my Ascent has given me the best tasting vapor I've been fortunate enough to experience... but the FF and Solo sure give darn good taste too...

    But the three are so close that I really don't think it matters. If you end up choosing between those 3, I would pick the one that suits me best overall. I think any of them will give good enough flavor to satisfy you. Just my opinion.

    Of the 3, the FF is by far my favorite, and my choice for one to choose, if money is no concern. It's the slickest new toy on the block, and is having a pretty darn good start, in my opinion.

    (virtually) Instant vapor? Yes, please.

    But be prepared for a learning curve.

    Would you recommend it just for loose leaf, as that is the only way I intend to use it?

    If you want to get great flavor with style, and stealth, Its FF all the way.. I have only experienced the Iolite, MFLB, the Ascent, The SOLO, and Finally, the FF. I get the best flavor from the SOLO and the FF, with FF rating slightly higher because the vapor is so cool. Plus, its so quick, you can take it out of your pocket, turn it on, and get a really nice full flavored blast, then pocket it again all in less than 45 seconds!
    Ease of cleaning, removable battery, magnetic lid, glass and stainless pathway, Metallic paint, and chrome all make this my favorite vaporizer.

    Thanks you for all the feedback. Just purchased the FF with extra battery earlier today. Was stoked to see this post after I made my decision.

    I've not tried most of those, but the pax loses the flavour competition for sure!

    the solo tastes great btw.

    I personally love the first hit on my Pinnacle Pro, but in my experience the Cera tastes the best for the longest and you can use it really quick if you want to.. That being said- I still haven't tried the FF or the Ascent :shrug:
