Bring on the MXL from DV. I would buy a few in a heart beat.
Please put me down for an MXL as well. Love the look.
In other news, I put up a video review and demo of the Water Wands from @DDave
Pretty cool accessory for the vapcap, IMO
There are more pics and comparisons available in the editorial version.
I *kinda* want to have one with a carb hole, but I'm cool without it.
I would like the @DDave stems in cobalt blue & the option to get the long stem with a carb hole.
Don’t know mutton about your hi-flutin XLs, I like an XXL myself. Carbless.
—Gonna make mutton of spelchek, someday. Mutter, mutter.
Okay, eberbody, I need a good sale. A GOOD sale. Is there one coming up before Thanksgiving?
Now that the uni’s are extinct something just as elegant needs to fill that void. Unfortunately if wood is not an option then the carbon fiber mid section is going to be carrying that task solo, I’d love to have some growth in that department
Hi FC !
After almost a month of absence in the forum for holidays, I returned to my country and wanted to share that my Vapcap continues adding places to share their steam !!
I do not think I can catch up, this thread runs more than the roadrunner !!
Nice! Where is it?
Hurghada - Egipto
the best place where I have been to be able to do kitesurfing and diving ..... I'm still there
Got my blue omni and it's bueatiful - but the cap is way too loose. It falls off if the omni is tilted even slightly down.
This is the seconed fitting issue I've had with vapcaps. The last TI top I got is too loose on the body, I got some response from Dynavap when that happened but it never got resolved. Luckily my old cap still works and fits fine so it's kind of a non-issue this time, but the loose parts make me wonder about tolerances and quality control.
What is the best type of magnet for holding the vapcap, axial or diametrically magnetized magnets?
I just got my M 2018...
What I like:
Overall aesthetics and handling
It works perfectly with non-ground nugs (the best thing about it! <3)
What concerns me:
The draw resistance!!! It's extreme. Unsustainable. I am supposed to close the shotgun, right? Puffing works but just plain drawing is very strenuous on the lungs! Is it supposed to be that way?
Mouth pulls work best, as you call it `puffing'. You can try feathering the carb hole to relieve restriction but the vapor will be airy compared to a nice long slow single mouth pull.
I mouth-pull sometimes. You just have to stack mouth-pulls together if you want good solid hits. I can generally get 3 to 5 mouth-pulls at least before I have to finish inhaling to clear my throat.
Some may be able to stack a denser vapor in their lungs per full draw that way, as opposed to direct-to-lung draws.
I vary my drawing technique depending on my form of the day:
a) Carb closed, up to 5 short mouth pulls until the click, high draw resistance
b) Carb feathered, direct pull to the lung, medium draw resistance
c) Carb fully open, direct slow/medium pull to the lung until it feels close to uncomfortable, short stop, eventually going on until the click or just leaving it there, low (nearly zero) draw resistance
All three techniques get me equally high/stoned. The only difference is the visible vapor production for which I care less and less since my combustion days are over. With a XL Vapcap, variation C is my favorite one. I tend to prefer variation A with the regular sized Vapcaps, but that’s just me.
Another thing that helps a lot with draw resistance is NOT to pack the tip too tight. Better don't "pack" it at all. Leave it fluffy inside and dare not to fill it to the rim. It still perfoms great (if not better).
Tips falling out of bodies is known, there are a few reasons why this might happen some that can be fixed... But having a new dynavap arrive like this is obviously NOT OK.
Contact dynavap again. They will make it right. They've been struggling to keep up with customer service for the past month or so, but it seems like they may have recently added staff to that department, so try again. I just had a super quick response to an order issue, where as my previous couple of emails went unanswered for a week+.
The cap you recieved is almost 100% likely the right size. Just give it a slight squeeze at the open end to make it slightly less round and it will stay on. This is how it is supposed to work, DV have a video about it in their YouTube portfolio..
Diametrical ones will hold the magnet centered, axial will hold it off from center. Central over the edge of the magnet.
The 'shotgun' as you call it, is not a shotgun like the in a bong. It is an air intake that let's you adjust the airflow ratio between air coming straight through your herb and fresh air coming in through the carb (carburetor) hole.
People typically talk of stronger, denser hits with the carb closed, but i have always found the stronger more vapour full hits to happen with the carb hole fully open.
With the carb full closed, i have to mouthpull (like toking a fag/joint) to get any real vapour.
Same here! I have been a large fan of the perma-closed carb, but then I spent a whole evening with a Vapcap experimenting with the open carb and my drawing technique and came to the point which makes me prefer the open carb for (personally) best results without irritations.
Midweek woodporn for all you timber pervs.
Lemonwood, Blackwood, Cocobolo Square with Ali accents. Ti tip insert and full length SS condenser as usual.
Nice to see you are enjoying yourself, @Whissmu , & your PP!
My friend Moose and I are secluded in a small 4 bedroom cottage on Nausett Heights on Cape Cod. Only place on
Continental US where a foreign submarine shot and sunk a tugboat and its four barges.
Ha-ha. All survived.
Rambunctious young whale near the beach where the tug sank, the water plummets precipitously into clifflike depths close to the beach. Öö
New spectrum of coloured VapCaps for the International Set! Yes?
@stark1 & Moose - That looks just great! Enjoy and cheers from over the large pond!
Thanks for the advice, the Vapcap takes some getting used too. Comparing it with my Vapman I have to say even though the devices are similar there are some very fundamental differences...
The Vapman has much less draw resistance.
The Vapcap is easier to handle and heat.
Can't vape nugs with the Vapman.
The Vapman can be reloaded while hot, the Vapcap needs to cool down a bit.
Also, the M seems a bit short for my taste - the grip gets hot, the Vapman only gets pleasantly warm.
I like how portable the Vapcap is.
Did I mention I love being able to vape nugs... No grinder needed, great taste. I love that.
I'm looking forward to build my portable induction heater for the Vapcap...
I know I have heard people from Dyna Vap quote that you can give it a slight squeeze so that it grabs a little better. I imagine the metal can change ever so slightly as its used but it often seems like its omni users that I see claiming this (wonder if its something with the characteristics of the metals and friction too).
The omni XL I have seems to fit just right but it hasn't been used a lot - if I shook/swung the cap would for sure come off.
Pardon? Hot grip? M?? What are you doing to it?
Maybe that the "Princess and the pea" may feel so, but any "normally" sensitive human being???
You should try a Grasshopper. Probabely you're getting burned
Call me Princess and her pea (Los, mach schon! ), but the grip of the M also gets quite warm (one could call it hot) for me if I do fast mouth pulls and reheat the tip quickly. That is one of the reasons why I prefer the XL variants. But it only happens in the described scenario, not during "normal" usage.
