    Hello all,

    I am after a hard hitting vape to use in my 18mm and 14mm glass. I currently use a dynavap vapcap m and a boundless cfv. For the past while neither seem to be hitting as hard as they used to. I do like butane vapes and am currently considering the flip brick. It can be used with both glass sizes. Another was the lotus. Its the size of these two combined with how they are like traditional bong smoking styles that appeal to me.

    Any experience of the two or any new suggestions. Id like something thats a hard one hitter if possible.

    Thanks in advance

    If the FlipBrick works as well as the Hydro brick then that sounds like the winner to me. Takes some time to master the technique but certainly my hardest hitting vape.

    Newvape Flowerpot is awesome for old school style bong rips

    The flip brick has defiantly caught my attention. Its ideally what im looking for as in its heated and used like a bowl for a bong. Would be good to hear if any owners recommend it.

    The newvape looks amazing. It looks like it packs a punch. I will look into that one also.

    I love my sticky brick stuff, great company that makes great stuff. I don't have anything bad to say about them or their products.

    As an alternative Dreamwood vapes also has some butane vapes specifically for glass. I have the DLX One and Pro and like them a lot. Pretty good prices and a lot of different designs/styles.

    Them dreamwoods look similar to flipbricks. They look good. I'm gonna have to you tube them and see them in action. Can you please tell me the difference in the two or which would be best suited for my needs. I love the compact style of them, almost a flip brick double.

    For those 2 it's mostly glass bowl vs wood bowl. The left one opens up and it's pretty much like a flip brick with a wooden bowl and screen. The other one is more of a heat intake you put on a glass bowl/gong. There's a screen in the middle of the glass you load the flower on top of then you just put the wooden heat intake part on and you're ready to go.

    The glass one gives you some more options, I've got a couple that work with it including one that has a glass screen instead of a metal one. I feel like they both perform and work very much the same though.

    Here's a pic of the wooden bowl from the left one:

    The supreme v3 looks unique. In the you tube video he was getting some big rips on it.

    The dreamwoods are def getting my attention. I like the wooden bowl one.

    I second the Dreamwoods, even tho I combusted in it the other day.

    bit of a learning curve for me, but I'm getting there.

    How easy is dream woods to master?

    Lotus took a learning curve, but IMO is really tough to beat once mastered.
    I find it the most natural for people coming from combustion or just looking for a lung buster.

    Also to the OP, I think you just need to add another vape to your rotation- pick something and run with it. Swapping around vapes can sometime have the same effect as switching strains. Variety is the spice of life. Mix it up as much as you can for ultimate enjoyment. :brow:

    This! It is expensive, it is unfair, but it is magical. Simply adding a new vape to the roto can be a life saver. When I moved to the Vapcap it was my DD in conjunction with nasty bong hits for about 4 months. I grabbed a wax pen that served me well. When I got the Crafty it helped clarify so much because I was able to move around as required.

    Approaching dankruptcy? Time to pull out the VCM and do some microdoses. Need to chill the F out? Crafty and a walk.

    VAS is real. The Flower pot is a great contender I think, because it's enail basis means you can easily get into dabs if interested and not already invested. I want one and have suggested it to a friend with an enail when they were looking at a Solo II for using around the house.

    I think you lads have summed up my problem pretty well. For night time use infront of the television I would ideally love a hard hitting vape, ones thats gonna have me stuck to the sofa or pretty close to it with only needing a couple points of a gram. I love my vapcap, for during the day I can hit it and function 100% only with a huge boost in concentration which I love, the cfv is similar but good for out and about.

    Also as i want it for glass i would like it to be butane if possible. Butane, at present, are my favourite vapes, except when out of the house.

    At some point in the future i will make a point of a Ti dynavap so long as i will notice a fair difference between it and my vapcap m. Now to just decide between a omnivap xlor nanovong Ti lol.

    The Mistvape Essence hit's as hard as my Ol' Daisy, I've only had the chance to use it a couple times but it's pretty bad ass, and even though I'm only using it through a 14mm mini-rig the Essence is one of the hardest hitting vapes I've used.

    Edit; you can go 14mm or 18mm with the supplied wpa or hit it dry.

    I do not mean to 'rain on your parade' BUT...IMO, the M with the SS tip hits much harder and provides more vapor per heat cycle than the titanium tips. Sure, the titanium tips heat up marginally faster BUT the SS tips retain the heat much longer and extract better, IMO.

    really... so glad I am following along.

    I have an OG glass TI on 1st gen cap and an omni on Ti. I want to try the SS tip on the Omni for comparison.... I don't ever use the 1st gen VC anymore but keep it as backup, I prefer the newer caps that have the adjustable chamber size.

    Don't want to turn this into a VC thread lol but since you already have a VC...I'd suggest looking into an Induction Heater (can be built for cheap or @Pipes has a few pre-built options). Out of all of my vaporizer purchases, for the money, the induction heater is probably my favorite addition. I feel like it damn near makes the VC a 'desktop' vape. Some might say that is a stretch but it makes using the VC so incredibly easy and effortless. I cringe every single time I have to spin it using a torch now. I didn't mind the torch, until I got the induction heater. There are both plug-in and battery powered options.

    Aside from that, are you looking for a desktop vaporizer or still something that keeps you portable?
    It sounds like you are familiar with butane and may want to stick with that. If so, I will not be of much help lol.

    top vapes i'd consider for bong rippin is: the sticky brick lineup options that will attach to it, the sublimator, log vapes are surprisingly good at it too. all great options.

    All good suggestions I would say too.
    Of all the things that impress me about my new Silver Surfer, two would be it's ability to wallop the living shit out of me through water using very little,
    and the fact that it really is close to a smoking experience for me anyway. But in a really nice convection vaporizer way!
    At the end of the day its a well designed "air heater" like the others.
    With very low draw resistance too.
    I had a lot of vapes in mind before this, and wanted power and pure flavor etc. and with this I'm done looking for the foreseeable future,
    that shit ain't no joke!

    Enjoy your new monster:science:

    First, Welcome aboard @b8man99 . there is a lot of information in these threads enjoy catching up.

    Now, back to the thread at hand. I am extremely impressed with the Tubo evic it is extremely versatile. You can make it sip or rip users choice. This is a temperature regulated vape.

    Tubo uses user swappable 18650's, so power is only limited by the number of batteries you take with you. The 18 mm stems have an open draw.

    Sorry for the late reply. I seen silver surfers on sale a couple months back and i considered it, i wish i had of went ahead and got one after reading that. How do you attach it to your water pipe?

    I dont think I have seen these before I will have a look on youtube and see them in action.

    You should have! ha ha.
    You connect the whip to a glass adapter and drop that in your WT joint.
    My water piece can be held in my left hand and I hold a glass wand (basically a bowl inside a glass tube, or stem!) up to the vape with the other hand, inhale, and pull it away before clearing the draw. Quick stir every 2 draws for a larger load.

    I had been considering things like the Plenty, Cloud Evo, HA Elite, E-nano and anything like that for some real power and taste, and was only slightly interested in water at the time. Then I was very lucky to win this SSV with cool glass in an FC contest on here! But I have been really blown away with what it can offer me, it's the only way I want to vape at home now.

    It makes sense, as it is what I would call a "USA Legend vape", kinda like E-nano, and maybe now Cloud Evo, is too. They are like widely regarded benchmark classics that everyone should aim to own sometime.
    Very well regulated with a knob and you could leave it on all day but heat time is quick so no need for me.
    And they don't have issues with the purity of the materials used in the air and vapor paths.

    PS- If you look at all the crazy SSV designs available on 7th floor website, and also at how cheap a "seconds" regular unit is, your desire to purchase one may also increase dramatically!

    I was all Volcano and Mighty before this, but this really is a whole nuther level again!!! Never was I so zonked so quickly, the effects are phenomenal, and so impressed with taste too!
    Even with the whip it's quite a direct path, so without water can get a bit harsh at times, but this just means very little potency losses, and smooth great tastes when paired with water.

    If it bothers you, the SSV thread is a little quiet as it's been out a while and it normally just works well, but there can be positives to a quiet thread as well as negatives to a busy thread! If you wanted to be involved in or read more conversations about your vape, maybe the newer bong stormers like FP might be more exciting in that aspect.
    But your questions can get lost in a busy thread too.
    Other than this point you could be as pleasantly surprised as I was!
    Of course maybe not everyone would feel this way but the SSV hits my spot like a high speed train carrying lead ingot!
    It extracts like crazy, will choke you if you over do it, with nice even ABV afterwards.
    And all that with only with the crappy "regs" or "mids" of my area so far!

    Another worthy inclusion to this thread might be the new 7th floor Elev8R, as I'm imagining it's kinda like a manual butane SSV, but obviously might require more input, noise and interaction.

    I have beenn playing around with different heating techniques on my vapcap m. It has been hitting me pretty hard again, also got new 2 piece grinder, might be a combination. Butane is my preference for vapes in the house or with glass, although i am defiently going to look into the ssv, it sounds appealing for in the home too.
