    Have vaped an Extreme-Q in the past. Confident in my abilities. Looking at Plenty for its lack of glass parts (won't break easily), but the thread is relatively small.

    I would really like an opinion ( opinion on the quality of the vapor/quality of the high obtained from the plenty vape) from someone who has an Herbalizer, seeing as this is the BEST vape the market right now. Money isn't entirely a concern, but size definitely is.

    I really wouldn't get a plenty. I've tried a few vapes and I really struggled to get decent hits on it without using loads of weed. It doesn't feel that solid, its temperature dial looks really flimsy, I've seen one break off during a demo video. It didn't feel natural to hold it at all.
    My Dabuddha vaporizer is miles better to use but does have glass parts, in 3 years I've only broken 1 wand though, they're pretty tough.
    Otherwise look into a herbalaire, I've not tried one but they seem very durable and are well refuted.
    Otherwise if money isn't a concern I'm sure you would love a herbalizer.

    Truly appreciate the quick and honest feedback.

    Would you mind elaborating on how it compares to the herbalizer. I understand the price is a lot lower, the temperature is variable, it is not digital, it is limited to whip (out of the box). But on a scale of 1-10, how does the high compare to the herbalizer (1 being nothing like it, 10 being exactly the same effect/high).

    Once again I am grateful for such a quick and honest community.

    Different models don't really give you different effects. I can can get the same amount and quality of vapor from a $100 vape as from one costing $1000. It'll just be easier with the more expensive one. Paying more gets you more and better features, sometimes better temp control, better ease of use, etc., but there are no high tech methods of delivering 'better vapor'.

    The Plenty is a good solid model, but don't get misled that it's somehow better than any number of other vapes because it's made by Storz&Bickel. That company was the first to provide a really top quality vape, but the industry caught up with them years ago.

    Do you mind noting the vapes you use, and how the ease of use compares to the plenty. I understand the technique for drawing will be a major factor, but I am most concerned about size and durability.

    "Good solid vape" what prevents the plenty from being an excellent vape?

    It is an excellent vape IMO but models such as the Evo and herbie seem to be better in terms of versatility and functionality. I've said it before but this vape just missed the mark for many nerds and fanboys. The vapor production is superb though which is what really matters to me.

    I am with Gweilo; the Plenty is an Excellent piece.

    I consider it the industrial-grade tool of the vape world. It is tough as hell, I have dropped it hard on wood floors at least once a week. I have a 300 lb buddy that accidentally stepped on it and only broke the plastic housing for the bowl. Great vapor start to finish, no instructions or special accessories are necessary for cool and huge pulls.

    It does look like it belongs on a workbench or in a toolbox, not on a coffee table. While functional, it does not have the aesthetics of a Cano.
