    Man oh man, I just received this divine appliance and I have to say, it’s instant love. I own Arizer Solo, VapCap Omnivap, WISPR 2, MFLB and I used to own iolite and a PAX knock off from china. Tha vapor is super smooth and tasty, cold with the glass insert, it almost tastes like with water filter but with more taste...it’s work of art, it looks great, smells great and feels great..it’s too early to comment on baterry life, but for now I just love it...and I haven’t touched the strong effect it generates in just couple of hits...it’s my all time favorite based just on single use...it’s not the smallest it could be, but reward for that is great taste and no draw resistance...I waited for it couple of months and it was well worth it :) It’s not like I’m gonna throw all my vapes in trash, but they will wait couple of weeks to get used again in favor of this one...Man have I just mentioned how VapCap is overrated compared to this one...I still like them both though...:)

    Really vibing with this vape!
    Spent some time tripping out on the grain from different angles for awhile last night.

    Each side and angle almost has it's own theme.
    The flow of the pieces together are in near seamless unity yet unique in their own way.

    Gonna space out on some of the smaller detail figuring with a closer perspective today!

    Wow, that's a looker!
    Really nice photography too.

    We are up to freaking date on ALL orders. Phew...

    I am currently working on my ever increasing Classic and Elite inventory, so as to reduce wait time for new buyers. I love how far these units have come cosmetically! The Classic rocks on.

    Yup, it was worth the wait. No need for a fancy camera (not that our phones aren't all bad ass cameras), just a simple light box tent is all that's necessary.

    I am trying to push my Cherry stock, so my Cherry LB Classics have just been dropped to the Maple price ($169 BB / $199 Complete).

    I can't get over how light the Lil' Bud Classic feels, this vape punches way above it's weight class!

    Edit: figured out how to post pic

    For those of you with glass-lined stems.

    Have you experimented with how deeply you seat the glass? I've got my favorite roasting tube set up with the glass exposed by 1 & 1/4" when previously it had been about 5/8".

    I'm getting bigger more flavorful hits. And if possible, even cooler. Of all the vapes I regularly use, I get the absolute biggest hits from the LB.

    I've also set the screen pretty deep as the LB has become my sipper; I fill it with about .25 of coarsely ground flower and tamp the puck. It's perfect while watching TV, playing guitar, or reading.

    Since it can take me a couple hours or longer to finish off a stem I stir a couple of times, which I don't mind at all. It's part of the LB experience for me. I do find that I am torching the screen more often as we've gotten to spring with more moisture, and the screen seems to be clogging a bit faster than during the winter months.

    Think I'll have a stem of some Amnesia Haze and play some guitar.

    Cheers FCers

    Really enjoying the versatility from the 22mm depth.

    The grip on whatever stem I've used is also far tighter than in a 19mm depth vape IME.

    What a long stem, @VoidOfCourse !
    While I'm at home, I tend to use the 'honey collector' kind of stem. The one with a labyrinth track to enlarge the airpath.
    I clean it once a month by soaking it in hot milk-cream-whatever to mix with my sunday coffee, and then clean it by iso and salt as usual.
    It can seem fragile, but has survived two cleaning sessions by the way...

    @el sargantano Yup, no doubt and with the wooden 22mm depth and a little turning it's still sitting super secure. Dreading cleaning it haha...

    Nice pics! The Classic cleans up nice with some fancy duds on.

    Now it's time for something completely different. Get a free glass lined roasting tube with every Lil' Bud purchased *today only*. That's a $35 dollar value, and this works with both Classic Complete and Classic Bare Bones. Make sure you include your FC handle and / or send me an email with your FC screen name. This unit, like any purchased now, will ship in June.

    Hits heavy without feeling like it's going to snap a j-hook with it's weight if you so happen to let go.

    Apologies if this has been asked and answered as this thread is extremely long, does the LB Classic performance dip as the battery’s charge gets lower? I know with some unregulated vapes if the battery isn’t close to fully charged the performance takes a hit.

    With a good fully charged battery one can usually get down to 3.60-3.70V without noticing a major performance dip. One might want to be careful the first bowl or two , its sweet spot is between 3.75 to 4.10 from my experiences with 3 LB Classics . It really drains the battery nice and steady . From 3.50 to 3.75 one might need to work it but still produces nicely :) good question , it would have been a tough one to find through the thread indeed.

    Thanks! And do they still accept 20700 batteries or is it just 18650s these days?

    I would say a simple yes to that. I have less experience than Pam and only own one LB (I've bought two but one was a gift). With my 30Q or VTC5A batteries I notice my LB not ripping as readily as I'd like after the first two or three stems.

    Yesterday I scooted my screen up so the load was closer to the heater and that had me back on track. This inconsistency might be user error on my part but it's been one of my niggles about the LB that, while the light and heavy hits are both high quality, I can't reliably repeat the process. Sometimes I feel a good amount of heat and don't get a big cloud and sometimes I ride the button until the glass liner is hot and don't get a big cloud. Sometimes the first few hits are great and then the heater seems unwilling to keep up the good work. The closest I've come to a reliable fix is to switch to a fully charged battery.

    Mike offered to check out my LB to see what the deal was but each time I get the results I want I figure my technique is the issue and I know he's busy so I haven't taken him up on his offer to have it looked at yet.

    Tl;dr: since I get inconsistent hits and a charged battery always seems to help I've told myself that it's the cell that's the issue but really who knows.
