    Ok. Good to know. I don't always restrict the air and when I do, it happens for the first 2-3 secs of a 12-15 sec draw. That said, if it wasn't meant to be restricted in any way and especially since the Milaana works perfectly fine without restriction, I'll probably refrain from doing it moving forward. I'm definitely very new to the RBT vapes. This forum has been really helpful and I do appreciate that.

    I dunno, mine seems pretty damn airtight, i certainly know immediately (ALMOST immediately, always a "what the..." moment!) what's going on with the no airflow...
    I DO know that Ryan has discussed the intake's use as a carb before (i know, carb is really the wrong term, but no more incorrect than it's use in regards to bongs and pipes...) and that it'll get you hummin right quick...

    Trust me...I know it works to restrict but if it will harm the unit, its not worth to me. I was under the impression that the intake was meant to be carbed but as mentioned, I'm a RBT noob.

    Like I said, Ryan talks about using it exactly as I am; mind you, I think he may be more cavalier with how he uses his RBT as he has a deeper stock to pull from if it goes sideways, however here, unless you are plugging the whole time you draw, I can't see it much different than a slow draw...

    Me too, Shit Snacks! I couldn’t be any happier right now with my Mi2. It’s producing some of the biggest, tastiest clouds I’ve never even experienced with many desktop vapes! Superb quality, beautiful craftsmanship and an overall joy to hold in your hand! 10/10

    Cross posting from Mi1 thread:

    As promised, in creation order:
    [​IMG]
    The original maple beta Milaana (the first with the official name used by RBT), then first official maple V1 batch that ran hot and was built rough, followed by the gorgeous V2 in purpleheart, and then the Milaana II in walnut with sapele cap.

    Beta and Mi2 pretty close in size!

    And all together, before I pack em back up (the purpleheart is like the ultimate collectible imo), while the Milaana II will carry me (along with those Splinters!)

    Lol the v1 router mark. I remember thinking, is it supposed to be like this? :rofl:Then I started huffing on it and quickly stopped caring!

    Ryan sure did come a long way in his craftsmanship from the OG Milaana to the last of the II's.

    That PH is a beauty too!

    Thanks @Shit Snacks !

    I spent yesterday with my Mi 2. I prefer the feel of it over my 1.5 / V2 which ever it is. Really such a great vape. I hate that they're no longer in production but hey, if mine ever give out I'll always be able to look back on them as my favorites. Or maybe they'll never give out :rockon:

    Thanks! Right VGZ? The first V1s were so effective the rough bodies didn't matter! I remember being totally floored by the PH V2 craftsmanship and the II did not disappoint! The 1.5 is a V2 with squared cap I think? There were so many versions and names lol copper helps clue you in aside from intake style, size/shape, and of course build. The crazy thing is, overall, no matter the version, they each performed better than any pretty much any other vape I've ever used probably

    I have all but the Milaana II. Been focusing on the splinters recently. Do you think the II is substantially better than the V2. And if so, where is it available. I looked at RBT's site but the retailers he lists don't carry it.

    I think it just might be! The batch I got mine in was supposedly going to be the last one, but I think RBT said he will be doing one more build before the year is out... We will just have to wait and see

    I don't perceive a real difference in vapor production between my 1.5 and my 2. They both slam. My Mi 2 might be a tad quicker to temp, but that's it. I do prefer the size, shape and look of the Mi 2. It's more comfortable to hold and it's pocketable, which matters to me.

    If a new batch of Mi 2 comes out I'm all in for an additional purchase or two. I fear the possibility of not having one until the end of days. The fact that Ryan foresees a potential increase in size with the Mi 3 suggests I'd probably shy away from that version.

    i must be the exception to the rule ... my milaana 1.5 heats up fast and glows red ... pretty easy to combust

    my milaana 2 takes quite awhile to heat up and is almost impossible to combust

    two completely different beasts!

    I have noticed that too using my Milaana OG. Easy to combust if you’re not careful... heats up almost instantaneously and provides some real “choker clouds!”

    Still haven’t used my Milaana II yet (I know, crazy, right?)... holding onto it as a backup for dear life. It’s almost too pretty to use... hehe.

    A question for other proud Milaana owners:

    Do you recommend using any type of wood conditioner or natural organic beeswax on your unit? Yellow or white beeswax? This is something I see other manufacturers using on their products that aren’t shellacked or use any type of coating or finish.

    I must have been out of touch because I usually buy everything Ryan makes. What is a 1.5? Or even a 1.? Except for the ll, mine are pretty similar to the ones SS posted.
    Also is there some kind of list or website where Ryan talks about what he's doing so I don't miss the Milaana II if he does one again.
    (I use some wood treatment that came from Ed.)
