hi there! and watch out! maximum (old) newbie in almost everything about vaping incoming: stuck between the decision to buy an ascent or the mflb. i am searching for a device, that will work at home on daily base and daily routine, fine like a chime, and is, on the other hand, able to be taken with outside - a short trip or something like that....a few sessions without completely drained batteries would be nice. i am a heavy-bong smoker for many years now. so i´m searching for a devide, that squeezes out the tiniest bit of "action" out of the herb, and deliveres it with a good strong experience. i heard, the ascent will work better with full chamber and thought already about making some kind of "puffer" with that steel-pad from the volcano. (saw it somewhere, maybe even in this thread? i´m after a few days of perma-searching a bit...nuts....) 2-3 of them should be enough to make the bowl 1/2 as big. and they would make absolutely no change to the material (as they are made for vaping concentrates and oils with it) so far, the plan with the ascent. but i am still not sure how he handles smaller amounts of herb - no money and no possibility of wasting some of the good herb here - and i heard he need quite more material to perform good, with dense vape, then, for example the mflb(?) i heard the mflb is pretty good in squeezing the most out of small amounts of herb - but i am not sure if this little thingie can please my allday-and-almost-anytime-daily needs :/ so i am totaly confused right now - the mysterious rumours about this gassing-stuff and all the crap not even mentioned...... i just want a quality-build vape, for allday use, exzessiv use, able to bring the full load from the herb to the vaper, withouth waste of herb. a device, i can take with me without problems (the solo and his glas-stem....*gnhhhh!!!*) and may even with the possibility of hook up to my waterpipe or stuff like that. that would be great. indeed. thank you very much for your appreciation edit: aaaaaand of course it would be nice if the herb doesen't taste like poo-poo through the new vape. !
