    IMHO the nano is more powerfull than the EV-2, the t° range of the nano offer higher temp!

    I ordered first the EV-2 and was disappointed by the lack of clouds....Andy offered to me to get a Nano as replacement and since I'm really happy!

    Although I like the look and craftmanship of the EV-2!

    Thanks for your experiences with the EV!
    I like big clouds but they are not a must for me as I find big, dense clouds just choke me out most of the time.

    I am more of a slower session guy now so thinner, less dense clouds suit me perfectly!

    I have already had two E-Nano's and am looking for something different.

    Will post a review once it arrives and I have had some time to get to know it!

    The EV-2 has landed!
    And boy is she big!! I mean JumboTron big!!!
    This is a log vape on steroids for sure!
    I love the look, design, feel, the cloth wrapped cord, it's all super polished!!

    First session was finding my right temp and adjusting the screw almost all the way to max.
    Flavor was great, clouds were okay and effect was medicated!

    I am using my Herbalizer whip as it is longer and just easier to work with.

    Airflow is super free and easy!

    I have moved the upper screen down so that there is a smaller gap between it and the basket screen.
    Holds the load closer to the heat source and when compacted a bit the clouds are awesome!!!

    It does need a few stirs for best use otherwise the dreaded burnt spot appears.
    The stirs bring out the flavour again and it vapes me evenly!

    This is quite the convection vaporizer as well!!
    If i don't hit it for a while, it takes a really deep pull to get the vapor going again!
    I like that the load does not just sit and cook while i drift off.

    More later, this thing is hitting hard and milking my big bubbler....

    I've only used the direct glass stem but I had to set mine to just a hair above minimum. Mine will actually combust at half power.

    Where do you all get the basket screens from? I checked the EpicVape site and the only screens say they fit all E-Nano glass accessories with no mention of the EV-2, are they the same size? Also does anyone know where I can get some additional direct stems? The only one they have is a long straight stem, I like the bent mouthpiece. Are there other glass mouthpieces for other vapes that will fit the EV-2?
    Thanks

    A few weeks into ownership of this vape and it continues to impress me!

    I am still using the Herbalizer whip and mouth piece attached to the glass elbow.
    I have however ditched the standard screen and basket set-up to an ELB from the EVO.
    It fits perfectly in the elbow and is a nice fine mesh size.

    Sessions are quite long off a little herb and the taste is still amazing, even when the ABV is pretty dark!
    It definitely requires stirring after every few hits but i find this enhances the flavour again, so worth it!
    This has become my go to movie watching vape! So easy to hit and forget for a while and the load does not toast itself!

    As the unit heats up more and the wood is nice and warm, this is when this vape really shines!
    Nice dense convection clouds from start to finish!
    I love the cloth covered cord, very nice touch!
    Quite easy to connect to glass if you have a few adapters lying around but i rarely use a WT with this vape.

    Does anyone know of where to buy those curved glass mouthpieces for the EV2?

    @ACE OF VAPE
    I do have a question on the heater set up though!
    I have mine turned up to +-98% of full power.
    My ABV comes out a nice medium brown and is very consistent.
    When i try and use the BOOST function, i find that the vape actually cools down quite a lot.
    Is this because i already almost have it maxed out?

    Looks like this forum is kind of dead. Since no one answered my question I am posting for anyone else who may stumble onto this looking for where and which basket screens to get. I took a shot and ordered a four pack of Arizer Extreme Q screens from Ebay 4/$6.30 shipped. They look like the same exact high quality screen which came with the vape and fit perfectly.

    Still on a quest for an additional direct draw bent glass mouthpiece as only having one makes me nervous. It has survived more than one drop from me falling asleep in my chair watching television. So, if you can point me to a one please do so. If I stumble onto a source I will post here.

    @ScottFL I don't think you'll find the Original EV2 direct draw stem anywhere to be honest. They were made for the EV and only sold through epicvape. I'm using a short straight stem from Andy at epicvape with a EQ screen now works great and much easier to clean and change the inner bowl screen then with the OG stem with the bend and tiny hole on the mouthpiece end.
    Although i too like the aesthetic of the old style myself.



    A new long direct draw stem is available from epicvape on their website for 15 bucks, that's the only one they sell now. It'll at least keep your EV2 in service should you break your OG stem.

    The EQ baskets fit but some may need adjusting I have found. Some fit perfectly while others the rim needs to be reduced slightly.

    I am using an EVO ELB these days and I can cap it so the load stays put. I am also finding that the finer mesh keeps the set up a lot cleaner.

    Anyone no If there Is a small water filter that fits the EV-2 or Extreme Q? [as seems they have same parts] like hand held portable 1, that would fit using the plastic tube? or even the big glass tube [somhow i doubt the latter] no spillage, thick glass. no more than about $30.
    I'd very much appreciate some help.

    Hey guys, getting an ev2 soon, i am just wondering....

    1. best way to water bongs? Should I use a 14/18 male-male gong? If so i'm confused what would work for a screen and not just fall out during a powerful draw.

    2. How can I use an EQ elbow with it? Literally like an EQ elbow pack?

    The EV-2 is a monster compared to most other log vapes or vapes in general. So if you're wanting direct connection make sure you have clearance. Another option is to use two elbows like the Cloud Evo whip kit. Enjoy that EV-2, and make sure if you're boosting to inhale quickly! :science:

    Thank you very much for your post, but i have to admit i don't know what you mean by "clearance" here.

    The only elbow pieces I have look like this... will it not work unless I get 18 females of the same piece? I've never elbow packed before but I know it's a popular tech, i just don't quite get it and how the herb/screen doesn't get sucked thru the smaller hole...

    You can either shove a screen in there like the old EV WPA or you can use an Arizer basket screen or a cap from a Vapexhale basket. By clearance I just mean, it won't fit every pipe bc of it's girth. There's always ways around, or the ability to retrofit with adapters. Enjoy and have fun!

    Edit: You'll only need one female connection and that's only if you have a Male to mate.

    Just thinking out loud here guys...

    So I have one of these.

    [​IMG]

    I'm trying to figure out how I could use it to adapt the EV-2 to a 18mm water path....

    I was thinking I could pack a bowl into both the 18mm joints on the bottom half but wouldn't that cause strange airflow problems?

    I feel bad because I am singlehandedly keeping this thread bumped.

    I have seen many pictures of ENANO where they are sitting on top of a gong hands free while someone rips a bong and gets a fat vapor rip.

    My question is, if i get clearance,,, is this possible for me? Or is it so big I have to pack an elbow and run it to the whip?

    I have been searching "EQ Elbow pack" on the forums here but if anyone wants to help a stupid newbie figure out what the heck i'm doing I would appreciate it.

    BTW I ordered a EV2 direct draw stem from Epicvape and it's here already so I at least can conceptualize how I will be loading a bowl. The next question is, how do I keep all the weed from being vaccumed through the tube when I take a hit.

    Last question is BOOST mode only for heating up from cold or do you use it for fat rips too?

    it should have a screen inside the 18mm male end (the bowl) of the direct draw stem to form a bowl out of the male joint and a basket screen to go on the end to keep it in the bowl.

    My laptops dying, sorry about the short answer.

    I have tried my friends enano and I know it's good.

    but the ev2 is better.

    Its better than the SSV with a ground glass heater cover actually.

    The only part im having trouble with is getting the screens to stay in place when packing into the 18mm whip adapter, but im hoping to figure out a solution to gong the EV2 easily.

    I have also shoved a hose in the EV2 stem and used that lol. shoving an elb in the 18mm whip adapter kinda works abut is awkward...

    i usually hate dry vaping but i can happily dry vape thru this all day, it rocks. flavors great, clouds maximum size, and i love when the load gets hot and i want to stir it dont have to take the cap off... can just shake the stem!

    lastly..... if you still needed proof EV2 is king...

    Well you can't get EV2 gongs anymore so i went to oregon glass blowers website and asked for a 18 to 18 with a glass screen in the middle of it.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Works f**** perfect... I just need to find a reliable way to elbow pack into the 18mm 90 degree angle whip adapter and i will be set for life. If anyone has any sugestions please help! If you google epicvape EV2 you see a picture of a whipsetup for it and i can't imagine that doesn't have some sort of screen built in or youd just suck all the herb through the hose?
