    Smoooth as fuck though. Didn't feel hot whatsoever. Full flavor instant full extraction have to go down a lil in temp but I'm close. Some more testing and then a complete review :)

    The sound of clinking glass balls as you reach maximum inhale reminds me of Dorothy from the Wizard Of Oz!

    Hi guys, appreciate all your vids but all I can see in each vid are water pieces filling up with dense vapour. Would really like to see the beast in action. I know the GS is huge but is it so huge you can't film it?

    Would never sell my Herb Ti. The whole setup is so small, easy and handy I would hold it alone for travelling and visiting friends - and it's gorgeous performance on flowers.
    Sorry for OT!

    yes message jojo!!! its in beta, lazylathe and I are the only one with the GS right now we need more users :) @Hogni

    Edit: So ive bulldozed through a couple grams of shake and wow :bowdown:

    Set up: took me 2 mins to have everything ready to go.

    Looks: The all glass, huge screens, huge bowl , the spheres and the heater all just make vaporizer so unique. in the hands it doesn't feel top heavy or anything with the spheres adding some weight, but overall when moving it from stand to bowl it seems that very little could go wrong unless you straight up dropped it.

    I am so fuckin high right now trying to make sense of this hahha.

    Effects: Best effects! Extraction is super fast and tasty as well. Beats out herbor ti and fp by long shot in this department.

    Vapor: Thick, tasty, smooth.

    have been sitting at 880 and have gone up to 950... I will venture a lil lower when I have some more terpy strains :)
    Great fuckin job @jojo monkey

    @Zow237, thank you very much for the new vid, Sir! :tup:

    Fuck it, that beast is really huge!!

    Perhaps better call it "Gentle (Glass) Giant"!?:hmm:
    Gentle cause of it's smoothness, Giant cause of it's size, taste and efx!?
    Not the worst name IMHO. I don't get the right connotation with "Symphony"

    Powered by heat cartridge combined with the glass balls as thermal mass?

    What's the time of upheating?

    Could the concentration chamber from DDave be a usefull mod?

    TY for your feedback & videos. I'm guessing it tastes better too b/c of the glass ? Clouds & effects are where it's at, but if the flavor sucks ass, I might as well still be combusting. Oh baby, is this a great time for vaporizing or what. :bowdown:

    So true, which makes it a really hard time to be allergic to the herb which I so love!
    I have been saying everywhere that I can see the Symphony very soon becoming the number 1 vape for all round vapor quality, effect, ease of use (for such a heavy hitter) and more.

    I dont mind the size of it. I liked my large Verdamper. It's actually the very first thing that drew me to this. The Verdamper was too harsh- no temp control, nichrome coil (with distinctive odor) etc.

    This is precise temp reg, replicable performance, finely tuned with all glass purity.

    Looks like the airflow is fast, easy and open as you want it to be, certainly in your video @Zow237 , very short inhalation time for a lung full of vapor. I liked the effortless pull with the Herbo Ti to get instant vapor flow.

    Anyway, @jojo monkey must be quite excited, for some time gone I imagine, knowing what you are sitting on! I can only imagine your growing sense of exitement as this takes off now.

    Very well done bro, wishing you every success Im sure there will be a ton if it. I will sure hope to get involved myself when it is right.

    I'm not meaning to even suggest that there is anything bad about it specifically, I honestly don't know.
    But you could always tell the Verdamper was on the second you plugged it in due to a very distinctive odor from the heating element.
    Naturally, the purist would seek to avoid all such materials nowadays.
    But you touch on an important aspect- the 2 sided coin.
    Jojo may be raising the bar up a few notches here, with tough competition for any vaporizer designer. Just the way of the world unfortunately.

    That said, as far as the Herbo Ti and Flowerpot are concerned, Im sure they will still do very well and will appeal to many over the Symphony. The same for any other vaporizer as well.

    Geniuses like Jojo are simply causing more vaporizers to be sold, individuals to own even more vaporizers, and the world of vaporizing being further enriched, so on the whole it's all good!:):tup:

    But were you able to taste the nichrome in your vapor? Or just smell it when the heater was powered on "blank"?

    (sorry for the OT @jojo monkey, it was the last question I promise!)

    I'm not entirely sure now, been a few years. The Verdamper had excellent taste to start a bowl, big rushes of terpenes. But it was very hot and harsh, especially compared to the Herborizer I switched it for.

    I would need to try it again, but at this second I am casting my mind back and re-experiencing the Verdamper vapor, and yes sure I reckon I can taste something from the heating element that is distictive to the vaporizer. The same taste as the smell.

    Again, not saying it is bad, but probably not "untainted". Not trying to promote any fear though, if I didn't have crazy allergies, I would love ro visit the Dam and blast Verdampers in the coffee shops all day!:o

    Elephant in the room here... I guess I don't get what you guys are getting so excited about. Looks big and clunky, fragile, vapor performance in the videos looks no better than my Vapcap, less versatile with concentrates than other PID powered competition, temperature control nowhere even close to accurate. Enlighten me? (see avatar)

    Well basically, the Herbo Ti and Flowerpot have been ALL the rage.
    2 members with the utmost experience of the top vapes have both acqired one. @Zow237 has immediately sold his Herbo Ti, and hinted the FP may follow.

    And @lazylathe , a grand master at objective and concise vaporizer reviewing, with as much experience of different models over the years as anobody here, has practically stated that it is officially his favorite ever vaporizer! (unless I misconstrued this Lazy, apologies if so.)

    I'm just getting my bet in now while the odds are good, for fun's sake in truth!;)

    I love the glass, it's one of the reasons I'm considering it over the flowerpot. A lot of the alternatives are all metal stuff. I love all those pure convection vids and being able to watch it vape in the bowl. Doesn't look like there would be much conduction or radiant heat. I have a sic halo for concentrates so I don't care that it can't do that.

    Yeah, all the rage for maybe 3 whole months! You know when I first joined FC I used to think the guys with the longest signature had the most experience, but the truth is some members here turn over vapes so fast, I can no longer put too much weight on their opinions! If I had a dollar for every time a member I respected posted about the "best vape ever" and next week had it in the classifieds or moved on to something else, I'd have enough to buy every vape on the market! If you listen to these people too closely you end up feeling like every vape is your arsenal is inferior, when these are the same people who convinced you to buy it in the first place, because it was the best! :lmao:

    I start wondering do some people here even like vaporizing? Have you noticed some members just never stop looking for a "harder hitting" vape? Where is the line drawn? TBH I think there are more than a few closet combusters on this forum! :lol:

    And I mean no disrespect to anybody! ONE LOVE! These are just my OPINIONS :leaf:
