    You are welcome! Interesting to hear your preference, i like the look of the new bubbler very much, although i don t own the TI, i always thought it could be a great piece for the FP also.
    Can you explain why you prefer the bigger one? And if it is not fixable and you have some money burning holes in your pocket - you know there is the german roor vapor bubbler?

    @Hogni Good old times :science: - G-Spot was one of my first "high end" pieces when they were new...

    Just saw they also make an oil rig which could be nice for a Vape

    Edit: sorry for two posts...

    The Ti bubbler is very miniature. Also 14 mm. Im not sure what exact model @latulipe999 has, but the model I would really love is the original RoorVapor/Herbo XL clone that @lazylathe has. It is a lot taller, looks like the perfect rig for any and every vape.

    Now if that is in fact your broken model Latulippe, then I am very sorry for your pain. If not then be consoled to know that you have not just lost the best bubbler in ths world at least! But hey stay up bro I really hope it can be fixed. You can know that Sebastien does care though and if he can help, and nobody else can then Im sure he will help you. Good luck!

    You say that like we all have a local glassblower that fixes bongs on the side of the road!
    The few glassblowers that i can find online in my area are fine art and would most likely have a good laugh if you turned up with a broken bong...

    For the past few weeks, been on a tear trying to find a bubbler that resembles @lazylathe roor. I purchased a grav piece from @lazylightning that is pretty similar to the style of roor. Found this on Aqualabtechnologies.com. there is a 25% sale on all pieces...it is not like @lazylathe, but looks nicev

    Reminds me a lot of this one I got from Texas Tubes

    Can't rave about him enough. Super cool guy. I own this piece and a collab with him and American Helix. Both are A++

    That's a good tube!! May have to look into that one!
    However, this still reigns supreme for any of my vaporizers!

    [​IMG]

    If you are careful with your glass, the RooR is worth every penny!
    Almost zero drag/restriction and superb flavor!
    Compared to how fast some vapes leave rotation, this WT has never moved from #1 in 2+ years!

    This!!!
    Is pretty uncommon over here to find someone who can (and will) do this kind of repairing.
    Recently I made an anonymous Instagram account to follow weed related profiles and found a young guy not too far from me who makes bongs and bubbler, I'll visit him as soon as I can as it could be an awesomeness opportunity for this kind of jobs and maybe even some custom stuff.

    You could ship it to a number of people on Instagram or alternatively go to a smoke shop and ask them about the local artists they buy from, most have at least some local work

    Special 2018 announcement- the infamous Herborizer Ti was the ONLY vaporizer I used EVERY SINGLE day for 10 days in 2017! It would have been a lot longer if my friend Dave hadn't come to pick it up from me on day 10.

    Im not sure I used the XL daily for more than 3 or 4 days in a row last year.
    The Omnivap about the same.
    The Flowerpot 6 days but purely for testing, and it was 6 days of hell at that. (Although I am sure I would use the FP every day for prolongued periods if not for my bad reaction.)

    The Herbo Ti I simply wanted to use every day. The only reason I envisage not wanting to use it is simply to save some herb.

    I just realised this recently, and it is somewhat telling anyway. Now, as you were.:cool:

    Hi, my name is pxl_jockey and I'm a vapor addict. :wave:
    I've only been vaping since last year, and so far my VAS has cost a Solo2, 2 vapcaps, and an eNano log. I've determined that 2018 will be the year of a top-tier desktop unit for little old me. And I've only just discovered the herborizer corner a few weeks ago, and that I had been confused as to what the herbo XL & Ti really are. So many similar herb-X vapes for my simple brain, as a newbie it can all be overwhelming.

    So here's my bio synopsis: 50 yrs, American living abroad (in UK last 10+), artistic type, medical user plus recreational euphoria for 30+. It's been pointed out repeatedly that this thread doesn't get the same over-blown hyperbolic love of the FP and that the herbo corner is mainly European affair (although you do let those two crazy-ass Canadian colonial crackpots hang out here) & FP is USA all the way. The solution:
    Let me be your rowdy, loud American presence with a giant foam finger,"WHOOO-HOOO! HERBORIZER NUMBER ONE!!! WHOOO!!!" :tup: I spent formative years in Texas so I can whoop and holler with the best. Plus I'm fluent in American English, which is different to the English language spoken elsewhere.

    I came here by chance via a glass quest and another member's reference to the herbo Bubbler body and stuck around long enough to notice 2 things about this little thread of yours:
    1)The herborizer isn't another plastic-shelled tower. The Ti grabbed me visually, giving me a design-woodie.
    2)There's a good vibe here, so nice and I notice quite a few familiar friendly faces from around the way!

    I'd been saving for the FP & a 240v Auber controller/coil, but the pure sexiness of the Ti may have changed everything now. I'm not completely convinced the Digi-Ti will be worth the additional expense for me, but understand market forces pushing in this direction. Maybe some kind member will sell me a pre-loved Ti analog? We'll see; I'm happy enough to see in this thread that Sebastien is a good person who cares for his customers. I really should have a European vaporizer, analog or digital. It suddenly feels very wrong that I don't! WTF wrong with me?! Seriously though, I really feel like @invertedisdead said, I like shopping with small independent makers who are also enthusiasts, like us!

    I'm creeping back into the shadows now as I won't have anything of any possible value to contribute until April-May most likely. If I am fortunate enough to have this device in my life, rest assured this threads page count will increase plenty, with lots of incoherent ramblings and musings from the dumb Yank in the corner.

    *I love and respect all of Canada and her people. Even(especially?) @biohacker & @lazylathe , I kid because I love. TBPH, I consider them to be role-models!!! :D:rofl::freak:

    Good Night, I wish everyone an easy and painless Monday morning wherever you may be!

    Welcome home @pxl_jockey !!
    Today cleaning day, I have a question for you :
    Do you clean the glass around the injector or not ?

    I realize I had to do it just once or twice, I removed it today and it has the multicolored tint of Titanium, in addition to the brown one of the oil. These dyes seem hard to remove.

    I clean everything, but i agree that the injector glass doesn't really get that dirty compared to the bowl.

    The only way i have been able to remove the yellow tint was with a high concentration PBW soak.

    Edit: I did ask Seb about that a while back, and he said what he usualy did with his was put them back in the oven for a complete burn off.

    Yeah when I sent Sebastien my faulty XL injector in September, he replaced the heating element and gave it an "oven clean".

    It came back to me shinier than new, basically as good as.
    But now the damned FC-186 with its notable blowback, has pushed abv up into the injector making it look like a mess.

    I wouldn't mind but I plan to sell the XL very soon. The injector is fresh and used little, just not the beautiful shiny sight it was.

    I do have a question about the Bubbler body, concerning the two sizes. The larger XL Bubbler body is the same height (25cm) as @lazy's roor vapor body and the one currently offered by Sebastien with the Ti is the size shown in the brilliant video by @bleak (20cm)? It just seems even smaller in his hand... But then I also imagine @lazylathe has freaking huge monster lungs that can handle twice the volume and I get scared that I'll hyperventilate just filling the can and have to exhale/inhale to get any vapor! That's no fun.

    For those with experience, is the XL body preferred to the current Ti body? I instinctively want the larger can, but not sure if my lungs really need or handle the extra volume. I don't have athletes lungs and want to absorb the vapor as best I can so there's a limit to how huge hit is practical. I'm after flavour and effect, not looking for big clouds because who do I have to impress? My wife? :lol: I still wonder and think: why Sebastien discontinued the XL body and only offers the smaller option for Ti? Is it a science or sales decision? Same thing with Sphere, now it's just XL and no basic. I don't know?

    I know I can get the XL at Verdampftnochmal but if the smaller option with Ti is deemed superior by design or by consensus then I should heed the advice. Right? I've heard from other members with one of the heavyweights that they really like a smaller can and very little water&diffusion for flavour and density.

    So I'm asking those of you with knowledge to take a moment and share your thoughts. Because I literally have no idea or clue because I have never experienced a "heavyweight" through a water tool. Help me?!

    This is literally impossible to answer.
    That's the equivalent of asking "should my favourite colour be blue or red?"

    Only you can figure out what you like and what works best for your need/taste.
    Personally, i think the straight dry steamroller is the way forward, and i would not buy either of the bubblers, but i seem to be in the minority.

    The Ti will work on any glass, just use what you like!

    :wave:Hey friend, hope you are doing good. I have been thinking about you with some anxiety and really curious how your 7th Jan appointment went, hoping real bad you get what you deserve and need. I looked to see your activity with a search last week for clues how it went- when I saw no activity after Friday 5th Jan for a week, I was concerned you had gotten disappointing news and had withdrawn from sharing here and feeling down.

    So it was a real relief to see you up and bouncing again in the Nano thread, still with us, alive and kicking in good spirit! You are such a bright and warm inspiration around here. By all means dude, bring that energy and enthusiasm to Herbo corner, this place deserves a little more passion for home of such a great, and still very underrated (and still fairly unknown, globally) vaporzer in the Ti!

    I can tell you now, I for one am solidly hell bent on getting the Ti again very soon if I can find a buyer for my GS.
    And it would be a nice bonus to have you to share this great toy with down the line. No salt in my wound to see you loving your FP or GS, maybe instead I can read your joy and satisfaction with a top desktop I CAN use myself!

    But whatever route you go man, you have my support- I still wanna hear all the tales!:nod:

    Now sir- to your question: first off- you made one error: @lazylathe 's Roor bubbler is 12 inches tall= 30 cm!

    Im not sure the exact height of the Ti bubbler, I will assume you got that one right at 20cm?;)

    And the XL bubbler at 25 cm, sitting in the middle. I was dead sure you were mistaken about the 5cm difference between the Ti and Roor bubbler.
    It is the added height that makes the Roor bubbler so great. I appreciate what you are saying about not wanting such a large can for ease of inhalation sake.
    However I strongly feel that the Ti bubbler is just too small and too short.
    Personally I would choose the taller Roor bubbler all day long out of the 3 if it wasn't so expensive.

    I would never even consider the small Ti bubbler. I'm sure I would also prefer the Roor model to the XL.
    And I would pick the XL bubbler over the Ti. Maybe this would be large enough for your specific preferences/ ease of inhalation etc.

    The bubblers are very narrow, so even though it seems tall, the can volume is not so large as it seems.
    Myself, I would only want the Roor model out of the three. I am really looking forward to using the Ti with my new FC-UFO. It is currently my favourite piece and I much prefer it to the 186.
    The draw resistance is just perfect. I don't run out of air taking as long and large a hit as I ever need or my lungs can handle. The draw is very responsive. It is easy to milk and get the vapor flowing and you can also watch the can fill and empty as you inhale which he can't do with the 186 unless you look straight down (like, underneath my glasses lol). It also takes a double start to get the 186 going. Hard to describe, but it's like I pull, thev186 oulls back, I pull again and we have lift off! It's like a tug of war to get going!:lol:

    Also no blowback with the UFO- I like a good amount of water myself for cooling, and with the UFO there is still no noticeable blowback even with several inches of water. The FC-186 has too much blowback, which increases massively with a higher water level.

    I also run out of air with the 186 which can be a lot harder to milk and clear for a large hit. It is slightly smoother I feel than the UFO. I like the whip option as well with the UFO, I also like the glass mouthpiece.

    Okay thoughts run dry. Brain too tired from the exertion- must...reach...power source...:borg::lol:

    Good to have you back with us bro, really hope your situation is on track for a perfect and fair resolution, and SOON so you can look forward and focus your sights on desktop utopia!

    I can only speak as an XL owner but no I don't clean the injector glass. I tried with some alcohol wipes without actually cleaning anything so I never cared to try again.

    @biohacker You and lazy always seem like such good-natured lads! I had no idea you've been in trouble, so you're like an FC ex-con? Can you vote? I'll never get points/ban because I'm scared of the mods. :ninja:

    @MrMonss Thank you so much, I was very happy indeed to see you chilling here. Really though, when I saw you & @Hogni here it made perfect sense! Youboth definitely have an eye for design and detail so of course you guys own this sexy powerhouse! This thread has lots of members I respect so much and then others I really like, that feels like friends, from reading this thread and they don't know me yet at all, lol! @The Beagle - Killer to see you here as well mate! I'm coming to your place to watch the NBA! Irie!

    @Alexis Thank you bro- for everything! You completely understand & answered my question, you're so perceptive with people. I know you know me but dang! Get out of my head man; you expressed my concerns better than I ever could! And straightening me out on the proper sizing. You're the professor! You're also a reason I checked this out, following you and your search for a monster you can live with.

    Yeah man, I've been having some medical junk- in hospital & then laying low. I try to bring the right sort of energy to the party, if I can't I'll lurk. I did manage to read this thread 2008-2018, WOW a decade! :clap:@stickstones was here Day #1! (How does he stay so young and good-looking?!) Anyway my hearing was postponed because technology. Their international phone was broken! But I have faith all will be sorted, a strange sort of peace. I appreciate the positive vibes and I'll keep you in the loop, just keep them coming!

    @Carlos8400 I completely get why you would say that. I was worried someone would take how I wrote it to mean that and nearly said "I'm not asking for a decision only your thoughts" but didn't. Sorry I didn't explain myself more fully. Fortunately for me, @Alexis saved the day, reading between the lines and using prior knowledge of me to express my rubbish better and then answer it all in the same paragraph!

    I really like the look of Sebastien's steamroller too! I'm really impressed with all of his glass and think his pricing is quite reasonable compared to many US glassblowers. Having said that, the stand and bowls prices make me cry. :cry: But I will have the matching Ti stand & the MDB so no use whinging about it. :D

    Dear @Hogni As you seem to be the official rep for Verdampftnochmal around here, do you know if they have any 4.20 sales or discounts? Or is this an American thing only? Next time I'm in Berlin, I am going there for sure! Going around the MJ festival/trade show in June would be an experience I bet!

    Who knew nothing much could take so long to write out! :haw: Thanks again everyone!
