Me too! Hopefully they will be available for purchase THIS COMING WEEK! Only then will this be a daily(as opposed to nightly only) companion for my outdoor adventures. RE: Bent glass stem: 90% of my near nightly use of my F2 is with the bent stem, which is among the quickest and most pleasant ways to get a few hits. When I'm too lazy to twirl my VapCaps, this gives a near comparable effect, but way easier. Normally I use it a 370F, but in "Emergencies!", I crank it to 400F for a quick extraction and total stone. Got to agree with Jill and Les, much easier to remove the glass while its still hot, and much much easier to knock the abv out while its still hot.
