    Hey guys, so I've been looking to find a great glass to complement the Evo that I plan on getting soon as well and I settled on the Mobius 60T. Thing is, this is coming off a bonus that's pretty much the price of the 60T and a bit, but not all of the Evo. Now, I'm starting to wonder if I should have just gotten the Swagger HT and used the rest towards a new phone or my wardrobe or something haha. Instead, I'll have to wait a little longer just to pre-order the Evo. Got the 60T when I saw it available because I know it goes fairly quickly, whereas the Evo can only get better as they gain more information on it (hopefully).

    Did I make the right decision here? Thinkin of forkin over two $400+ loads for these puppies. Worthy investment if I can afford it?

    Also, is it forgivable to go combustion to hit my brand new Mobius 60mm Stemless Tube with Stereo Matrix while I wait on gathering funds/shipping of the eagerly anticipated Evo? Good thing I have a Solo but I don't know if it's strong enough for a 60mm can.

    The Mobius is a keeper for sure! If you know how to use your Solo, then you will find it pairs with the Mobius like Romeo & Juliette. Great choice, both! Enjoy!!!

    IMHO, yes that's a fine decision.
    No need for remorse.
    You'll love the 60T (I have a 60B and love it) and likely have it many years.

    The EVO is on my buy list also. But if you read the thread they're currently ironing out a few production issues so IMHO it's smarter to wait for the results of changes to filter in. I know thats what I am doing then again I have a Cloud already so it makes it a lot easier to wait.

    As for the combustion thing, some people are like OCD about that. For me I don't see the concern. It's glass. ISO (or PBW) will clean it back to good as new.

    No need to resort to combustion. My solo can milk my 75mm sov mini king, granted not like my VXC but it will still do the job in a pinch.

    Alright, awesome. Thanks guys. I appreciate the quick feedback. Clouded vision, a couple questions: I'm guessing you put the Solo on 7 and take real slow draws? How much do you pack the bowl? Do you use the PVHES? Which do you find works better with a bigger glass?

    Haha forgive my impatience, but I think I'm going to take the jump and pre-order the Evo. Hoping the warranty will cover any initial bumps in the road. I asked this in the Evo thread, too, but while I have you guys here, what do you think? Buy off of VapeXhale's site, or off this other site that supposedly offers a 3 year warranty and throws in a free Smoke Buddy Jr. (which I know has limited uses but is worth a shot if it's free)?

    it really works anyway you want it to. I usually start at 4 then jump to 7 after a few hits. I used to pack it very tight but recently I have been using a much looser pack and it still works great. I am using a PVHE gong but no need to take extra slow draws, just match draw speed to the solo's restriction. I will say that typically I use my little bubbler with the solo and save my big tube for my logs or VXC but there are times that my bubbler is upstairs, I'm too lazy to go get it and really want to use the solo so that's when I use it with the sov, or even my recycler occasionally to mix things up. No matter what you pair it with, the solo never underperforms

    OMG, you going to combust in your new 60T, oh watch the fuck combustion police may knock on your door...

    I wouldn't answer if I were you... Just saying.


    Btw, I wonder if you rent out your wife. Wouldn't mind a recycler myself. Been meaning to get a recycler some day :)

    So you have the VXC, the Solo, and a collection of glasses to choose from, I see. Have you ever considered getting the Cloudbuddy or do you have something similar that you've used to pair the two devices?

    And Photorider, the best case scenario for me seems to me to just distract them with my current strategy of adding G.A.S. to my V.A.S. and hope they don't notice.

    that's my plan also. I firmly believe GAS is a medical condition aka a mental disability and should qualify for medical mj use and a full time disability claim much like PTSD. After I developed GAS I have found it extremely difficult to focus on much of anything else and especial NOT WORK! Moreover, the only thing that seems to help it is medical mj use and access to an extreme amount of boro to use it with...

    I am sure I am not alone here, am I...

    Not at all... my roommate and best friend is afflicted with exactly the same- you describe the symptoms to a tee. I'm just the lucky devil who lives with him and also gets to enjoy all his nice boro :)

    well one might say you too have GAS... ownership doesn't have to be mandatory, access to boro qualifies :) This shit is sneaky stuff and extremely contagious. Simply touching it is enough. Oh using it, well then it has you by the short hairs.

    I really think they should forget about this Obama care stuff and fund research into a GAS cure. I really think going very long unchecked will allow GAS to become public enemy #1 in the health condition of North America perhaps much of the world...
