    I could never cash a stem of good bud in 5 cycles.
    If the vapor is thin heat a bit longer, there is a learning curve. Eventually it becomes instinctive, that is my experience.

    I often take a load to french roast coffee colour. I never stir.
    YMMV.

    so how many cycles for a stem or half stem? I heat the whole cap except the tip and spin 360. How many back to back without cooling 100%?
    I feel like I get better hits off my og glass model.

    As many as it takes. :brow:
    I'd say for me 8 to 12 using the same method as you. With the Blazer Firefox more with a smaller flame. It really depends a lot on the quality, load size doesn't seem to make that much difference.

    I like/need/want the high temp compounds though. I decide partially on vapor quantity but also how did that hit hit me. I get some late low vapor hit that really smack hard. Not always though I suspect it is strain related, still figuring that one out.

    I may be an outlier?

    Sorry guys, my mistake. If you live in CA/USA and the shipping won't be too expensive (to some far away places the shipping is 75$ from CA!), it's the one to go with, has a warranty and high quality build as i heard, not just from you LP :tup::rockon:

    Not that SJK suck, but for the 25$-30$ (shipping included if you live CA/USA i guess) extra you can get something that has a premium build, and a device which you can expect that will make the job done for years.

    i find the portside mini with a fresh charge to be more aggressive in heating than the caldron ... but mellows a little bit as the battery discharges a little.

    @CalyxSmokr - Extraction has a lot to do with resolve. I can finish a finely ground vapcap bowl in 2 draws to dark ABV. By the same token, I can get 4-5 draws on the same load size if I back off. Counted in reheats - 4-5 is about normal if you are going for a full bake.

    I am pretty sure @Planck is an outlier at 11-12 draws. But he is right in extracting that last little bit. Like Planck, I too need that 420'F medicine. Very tough to coax out of the flower.

    I use Flickr as a host but I also manually extract the shareable link. There is a thread on the subject. Read the fine print when you sign up. Basically you loose all rights to your images by uploading but maintain all liability.

    There are a few sites.

    I find https://imgbb.com to be simple, and easy.

    @Joeguito - yea, it is difficult. I dread having to post images. Video's can come straight from YouTube.

    What style of lighter do you use, single, double, triple? I mostly use single flame as it gives me more precise temp control.

    I'm not sure exactly what you mean by heat the whole cap, but I tend to only heat certain "zones" on the cap depending on a number of factors.

    [​IMG]

    If I want a flavor sesh aka gentle heating.

    I start at zone A, heating for one heat cycle, then for each of the next heat cycles I move the flame down a little, till finally ending at zone B.
    It could take anywhere from 8 -12 to heat cycles till I'm done.

    If I'm after a speed sesh aka aggressive heating.

    I start at zone B and stay there for all the heat cycles(although if I feel things are getting a bit too hot I will move my flame up a little bit towards zone A)
    Normally its 3 - 4 heat cycles till I'm done.

    Other variables are the quality of herb, grind consistency(from fine to whole nug), how dark you prefer your ABV/DCB and the amount of herb in the chamber.

    Everyone does it a bit differently/develops their own style and the right way to do it...... is the way that suits your mood/needs. :smug: :peace:

    Beautiful. That should breath a lot better.

    If that is an '18-M I also spaced the cap from the tip with a strip of stainless steel flat wire bent in an S-shape. Others have filed little scallops in the bowl to let air in like the Ti tips and the '19-M. I still prefer the wire although it is an extra thing to manage when cleaning.

    I tend to go the other way. I usually give up on a bowl when the vapor is subsiding but not gone completely. This is because the darker hits tend to irritate/burn my throat. I give it up before the hits get uncomfortable for me.

    I will go a cycle or two longer in the late evenings, because the latter hits are more sedative. Nothing puts daddy to sleep like some good vc hits on my homegrown and well-aged Bubba Kush. I also let the trichs go all amber before I pulled it.

    I use a medium grind, pack fairly full, but not tight. I average 7-8 draws for most loads. When I’m just managing pain during the day, that can be three sessions out of one bowl. I stir when I go back for these sessions. At night, I’ll just hit a fresh load until it’s done.

    Mine is supposed to be arriving tomorrow.

    The whole new unit will be cool to try out but I can't wait to take that 20 M tip and put it in my new vortex!

    I'm hoping that THIS time I actually got a KarmaVap in the order. I ALWAYS miss out on it. lol
    Been dying to send one to a buddy in Vermont. fingers crossed!

    Happy Vaping! :leaf:

    Well... How is it man?

    I'm planning on doing the exact same thing when mine arrives tomorrow (if tracking info is accurate).

    Sure, @Stu put me on the spot with that cool pic. LOL

    Ok, Here's my Phantom Vortex with my Shadow M stainless steel tip n cap.
    [​IMG]
    The shadow M tip seems to perform better for me than the titanium tip in the vortex.

    Making me all the more antsy about getting that 20 M in tomorrow. LOL

    Also got another badass stem today, along with a very pretty and immensely useful CCD adjuster/remover/setter!

    [​IMG]

    One of those AWESOME Moai Stems and an IST tool from @danielj!

    I slapped an XL condenser with no mouthpiece into the stem and a titanium tip on the end and Vaped 1 capful through her. Very cool stem!

    From here on in she goes up as a mantle centerpiece and probably one of the coolest conversation pieces I have up on a Shelf!

    Thanks again, @danielj!

    Happy Vaping! :leaf:
