    Glad you and so many others are enjoying their new Dynavap goods.
    Doing a Sunday eye opener of some Cherry Pie in my @phattpiggie Ti Koa then relearning some Christmas tunes.

    I have come to use several stashes all for different purposes.

    I'm still loving my Dynastash/ERs, but I tend to keep them in the house or when working about in the garage.

    My @Ratchett Vapcap pouch is my out and about stash of choice. The leather is soft and supple and it holds an XL Vapcap, lighter and doob tube for your stash. Perfect for a weekend away.

    I found this fantastic little keychain pouch. It's cheap. It has a clip so I can attach it to a beltloop. It closes with a solid zipper so everything is super secure and it is the perfect size for a regular length Vapcap, small lighter and small amount of bud stuffed into a concentrate container or extra loaded tips. Oh, and it has an attached chain and ring to hold my house key. Perfect. This is my go to for hiking in the woods.

    I'll be using it today...my neighbour has 350 acres next to me and we are going Xmas tree hunting this afternoon. It's a perfect calm mild day with a dusting of snow on the ground.

    Yes there are and they are nice. Not as pretty (to me) as the Bocote but nice. However, they are not 20% off with free shipping and that was a qualifying factor. That was also the qualifying factor for the Omni XL which DID yank my trigger finger. My finger just got tired, that's all... ;)

    Indeed. there are setups that I plan on having for say 3 day camping or just kicking around town.
    It made me think of a magazine filled of 'M's. :lol: Imagine some setup like that but with an interchangeable lighter. Like you can slip a V2 vertigo inside that package. Since we all are dreaming up ideas here....:zzz:

    Other design ideas I'd like to borrow from.

    Now imagine that with a way of heating the VC and having the functionality of being able to turn the VC .

    Smell proof design, but probably he wrong size for an 'M' and not a proper butane lighter.

    Like the ecig bubbler being protected.
    I got the narrow green version tightpac of this. An extra tip fits in the top part of the pen.

    @VapCap has agreed to do a limited edition run of the ti 7-fin, 4th gen. tip (possibly updated). Please refer to the specifics HERE.

    Note, that every several pages, I will bump this up to be sure everyone sees it as some members don't check in for a couple of weeks at a time & may not back-read.

    I'm not sure I understand what people don't like about the new tip. I have only had one for a short while but I haven't noticed anything wrong or any downside to the lower mass compared to the gen4 tip. Is it about holding heat? Is it the way it looks?

    I think it is simply the aesthetic appeal.

    I prefer the 4th gen 7 fin tips better than the 5th gen 5 fin tips. Not because one performs better than the other, but because the 7 fins tips are more visually appealing to me

    Kinda like the difference of seeing someone, looking away from you;
    or the person looking into your eyes, with
    a loving smile... :love:

    More Gen 4, please

    Ok, you guys are on drugs...



    No, really, I can see it as a little more elegant looking.

    The only practical difference I have noticed is that when twist loading in ground goods I get more stuck in the fins with gen4 which adds another step sometimes.

    Other than that it's six of one...

    One poster a few pages back who has used both tips said something about the vapor from the 7 fin tips being slightly denser/more potent than the 5 fin (or something to that effect) with the tradeoff being that the 5 fin tip reaches hot and cooldown temps faster.

    I have been looking for differences like that and I haven't yet noticed them, but it's only been a few days. I will continue to watch for them. I will be a little surprised if I see them but I will keep an open mind. And I'm sure that my looking for these things while buzzed won't influence my success or failure...

    @Summer Thank you for doing the legwork and approaching George about this Summer. I'd just accepted a 7-fin wasn't meant for the likes of me, and you and your gumption have made me very happy tonight. But I think you're wrong to bump it so that everyone has a chance to see. My view is if they aren't here once every other day and catching up compulsively then do they really deserve a 7-fin tip?! No, I say!

    @cybrguy I don't think anything is wrong with the 5-fin but that's all I know, both ti & ss; but our fellow members with more VC experience love the 7-fin. I think it mostly has to be looks, George is too smart to make a design change if he didn't believe it made sense. It's not cheaper, they're just removing more material right? But people who I think know stuff have said there's just something about the 7-fin, so...... I want one, furthermore I have committed to one because they do look cool and I may never get another chance at 7-fin heaven. So what are your thoughts and what gens do you have? Mrs. p_j isn't going to understand why I need this and worse, I won't be able to mount an intelligent argument for yet more VapCap kit. She's starting to think I'm obsessed. No comment.

    @SloJimFizz Woah, that picture just took my breath away. @phatpiggie really outdid himself on that piece, though he's been doing a lot of that lately. Beautiful subject matter but nice photography skills as well!

    Been a low energy weekend for me and I've not been online much but I've enjoyed the case/stash discussion here. Oh we did manage to decorate the tree this evening and had a surprise snow this morning so it really was beginning to feel like Christmas. We rarely get snow in December and when it melts all the grass is still green. I'm always dreaming of a Green Christmas! Hey, that should be a holidaze song!

    Thought of @Squiby doing a 350-acre grid search for her tree, and I wondered is it more difficult with a torch lighter when temperatures are below freezing and you've got some elevation? Anyone with the experience/knowledge can pipe up. I'm curious since I'm at sea level and rarely below freezing for long.

    Anyway, wherever on the big blue marble you are, I hope you have a Green like-a-DV-package Christmas!

    EDIT: I see @cybrguy put his opinion out there: 6 of 1 v half dozen

    So here is the thing. There are all kinds of reasons George might have changed the tip design that have nothing to DO with performance. The gen5 might be less stressful on his equipment or have fewer failures due to the additional space between fins, for example. I am quite certain that George wouldn't make changes that he KNEW would reduce performance in any way, but that does not mean performance 'as a vape' is the only reason things change. And it wouldn't surprise me at all if we had users in here that were more expert IN USING George's designs than George or any of his crew just due to the amount of time they can (and some do) spend using it.

    So it wouldn't be unreasonable to think that George gets help and idea from US, and might find out about a performance "trend" from our complaints/suggestions. My suggestion that _I_ haven't seen much difference in performance between gen4 and 5 is just 1 data point.

    7 fins means more surface area to heat? Newer tips less metal/mass to heat up? I could see it being about the same unless you refine your method that suits the tip more. :2c:

    I feel like I understand the dif more between the Ti and the SS a little more. And the looseness of one cap I have.

    The charts @Stu posted kind of confirmed what I felt beforehand was the dif and his points. Ti heats up and cools down quicker, SS stores heat longer and clicks heats a little later. What I got out of all that? what tip is suited for what body and I changed my draw style for both tips.
    Yea, Same here. Lots of ideas. Already looking in my junk drawer for a plug for the arriving 3D printed case.

    Well I do have glass, I'd like to carry. :brow:
    :myday:There weren't machined in house at first. Right? When did he do it in house compared to tips being made, BTW? But,yes on all your points. What is best for the milling process. tweaks in design, feedback from customers.
    There are some devotees here that could give us some sort of timeline for the changes of tip design. ;)

    Now would I still want a 7 fin? Is it more of a particle magnet or a crumb catcher ? :hmm: :haw:

    I'm not scientific by any means:
    I have all but gen 1 tips & caps
    I really can't tell much difference if any at all;
    blindfolded, I don't think I could tell you which was which

    You're freaking awesome! Very good points and well made, that's why I love the folks in this thread. Thank you for taking the time to explain how other reasons beyond the vape itself can impact design decisions. I hadn't considered the overall "George has got a business to run" aspect though, all those factors. Cheers!

    Wow, I had no idea that the Gen 4 mystique was so great. My reason for wanting another is that I like the performance and I'm used to the mass of the tip. No need to rock the boat, especially after having used the same two tips for many months.

    @cybrguy, here are some of the good things that have been said about the gen 4, & this is why I've been lusting after it. And, yes, @Winegums, there's definitely a mystique about it. I'm totally siked about landing this tip. And, of course, there's a vcaas (vapcap accessory aquisition syndrome) emotional component to it, too.

    This was posted on the tip waitlist thread & made me laugh because it's also why ordered 2 :lol::


    Here's the description that goes along with these 2 @phattpiggie's pics that have now been posted several times:
    pp said, "here's the Ti I have, left to right.
    First gen, 8mm bowl. Second, 8.6mm and 2 extra fins all deeper both outsourced. Third, 8.7mm adjustabowl, left hand rifling. Fourth, 8.7mm adjustabowl, right hand rifled, both made in house.
    I know there have been a few tweaks as manufacturing has gone on so there may well be other versions of the tips."

    And here's what @Winegums said about the gen 4 tip, so maybe you can see what he references in these pics, too.

    As @Squiby, @Winegums & others have said, there's definitely the aesthetic aspect. Visually it is much more interesting & appealing.
    Here's a really well-lit pic previously posted by @paehtod.
