I can stuff over 7g of preground into a classic jyarz... don't really see a better solution than that.
You'd probably have to change your name if you needed more than 7g on the go
Here's another vid of the rocket grinder @GreenHopper

It does look small, but seems okay quality.
Very expensive for what it is
Says "made in USA". However, I read the reviews on Amazon. Not sure if it is even worth the 10$ ny their accounts. The company/place that makes them seems low profile. Didn't find where they are at. Maybe the label was "made in USA".
If the Rocket grinder makes it easier to fill with it's special hole that would be helpful, But the inside threads near the bottom look like an area where particles will stick.
Good idea that needs more tweaking. I also think it needs to be the next size up. Or it will be hard to turn with thicker nugs.
The smaller parts need to be a little larger and easier to keep together. I would even have it compatible enough to stick on the end of a doob tube, like a plug end.
EDIT - just saw the vids. it is larger than I first imagined. . which is good.
Lift Innovations is just starting to ship.
It is all speculation on the condition of Lift Innovations, they could be dancing on rainbows. More so an observation that their product has been copied and reverse engineered in a few different forms and Lift Innovations is barely starting to take orders and ship. Hoping the best for Lift Innovations because they have created one badass grinder.
The Lift grinder is a premium piece of equipment no doubt about it. I honestly do not have a clue regarding the quality of materials and build of the Lincig grinder or some of the Chinese versions of this.
I have, it looked good but there was concern of plastic threads getting into the ground material. I'm aware that this is solvable by looking in the device and removing stray threads but I'm not to keen on the device to be honest.
Thanks for the video.
I won't be getting one for the simple reason that I'd prefer to pre-grind with a proper grinder at home and then use a doob tube or equivalent whilst out and about.
I was just mostly posting it as I hadn't seen it on here before so thought I'd share.
Thanks all for your replies.
Yeah I raised those concerns, and I still have them, though for occasional use I don't think it's much of an issue. @JoeMama sanded his back, which would probably be a good idea, but I only use it if I'm out in public so I don't have to handle loose material. I've probably used it only a few times since I want to minimise the potential of vaping plastic.
Plus, I prefer packing chambers normally, as I can get more control over how much I'm using per hit.
Knowing how much is loaded would probably be an issue for the rocket grinder too.
I as well do not use the Feeder much... only if I'm going to be out where I have to load stealthily.
Not because I don't trust the Feeder, but only because I like the ritual of manually filling the chamber.
I just stumbled on this one, the Grav Labs grinder
I've had the Lift Innovations grinder for a few days. It changes everything. After 5 really tough months of waiting, I can say it was worth it.
Instead of being a real chore, I can now grind up tiny amounts. This means it's easy to vape one strain, and then grind another strain and have another session. All without cleaning a grinder.
But I think the best part is the uniform cut. I've got four strains here, and they all taste and vape differently with this grinder, than with the old style that just mushes everything.
For the first time, I can try one strain and then another without a hassle.
Also, I've found that with my previous grinding habit, I was filling huge bowls in the Mighty, and not getting high. Now with small bowls, I can finish it knowing it's completed, and move on to the next bowl. I just find I'm getting way higher.
These are my habits. But they were encouraged by the archaic design of the typical grinder. This thing was way worth it.
The photos are of what I would call a medium sized bong hit.
Nice post on this elusive grinder.
I quite like the idea of this thing.
I'm interested to know how often it needs cleaning? And if the blades are sharpened?
The blades are not sharpened. It just uses the edge of the blade moving past the stationary body to cut. I'm surprised how uniform it cuts.
Also, it works better with a back and forth, rather than turning in one direction.
So far it appears that cleaning is not something that has to happen very often. I've used it for a dozen grinds, and it's clean.
The big benefit is that it's immediate. I dreaded grinding. Now I look forward to it.
I so need one of these new Lift grinders.....drrrooooool..... It sounds so far that nothing beats it?
Certainly sounds good!
Does the blade spin 1:1 with the handle? Is the idea to spin it quickly, or does it just slice through material?
Sorry for the questions Gregg, but it's just too interesting.
I am still very happy with my SLX over a year later, so I don't think I'll be buying anything soon.
But the Lift would be the best competition I guess
The blade is connected to the top piece. It turns with the same amount as the hand part.
The cool factor is amazing. As a designer and machinist, I can say this thing has a lot of work put into it. I get up in the morning, and look at it. It's just one of those pieces of equipment I love.
The Lift will be my next grinder, I'll buy one once it's widely available and had a few more reviews. The main reason is I've recently decided I want a finer grind for my cannabis, so the ability to switch grind sizes easily is a great feature.
I know the GR8TR has a lot of fans but it has too many reports of quality concerns for my liking, and customer service seems inconsistent at best.
The New Vape fine grinder is tempting but I'm not a fan of 2-piece grinders and would prefer a 3 or 4 piece. This also rules out the MFLB finishing grinder for me.
The Lift is most likely the best grinder on the market and I have owned many of them. This grinder design changes everything. It is that much superior to the old traditional grinder design. The comparison is not even close in every aspect of grinding herb. I have retired all my top of the line SCS, SC, and Mendos away and I will never use them again, not even for fond memories. I am going to pick-up another Lift grinder when they come out with the gold anodizing.
OMG please stop it already!!! Killing meeeee!!!!
Thanks for the great feedback!!! This is incredible!
EDIT: Trigger pulled! 3 piece + coarse and fine plates!
Says it will be shipped in March!
@lazylathe you should be getting yours any day now?? You will love it for your new Grasshopper! I'm ditching the kannastor after the Lift arrives....I can't afford two vapes of this value lol $110cdn for the 3 piece and 2 extra grinding plates. I know it will be worth every penny though!
@steama do you have a kannastor? so the SCS does nothing the Lift can do? Just wondering if I will have a need to keep the kannastor too...maybe it grinds finer with the fine plate or something, but I doubt it....sounds like the lift does everything perfectly.
