I found the glass VaporGenie on my mission to find a portable vape. Right out of the box, I gave it a nice bath, pinched off some herb and gave it a rip... Taste: Very strong and pleasant. A HUGE difference from the wooden VaporGenie. Temp: The pipe itself gets pretty hot, and it's a bit difficult not to take the bowl in 1 or 2 hits. Build: Nice thick glass, all glass. Huge bowl. Ease of Use: Take herb and place in bowl. Size: The pipe is long, so you can easily watch the vaporization process right in front of you without going cross eyed. *The only thing I don't like is the screen. It tends to fall out ALL THE TIME. Just a minor drawback to a pretty sweet piece. (worth the money) Very good piece if you are looking to make the move from smoke to vapor. I pulled up to my friend's party the other night and there were way too many mouths to feed, so I sat in my car and vaped before I went in. Perfect for any closet vape master such as myself. If I left anything out just ask.
