In the late 70's early 80's I played around with a cookie tin with electronics (on off switch) inside. There was a baby food jar on the top with a car cigarette lighter within. The idea was push button till wisps of smoke, stop the on , unscrew jar and inhale goodness. Pain in the ass but it was a conserve the weed machine. Fast forward to last year and I met a dab rig for the first time. Heating a nail with butane and squishing wax with a red hot glass rod. Pretty scary if you ask me. If the failure rate is 1 in 10,000 than there must be a thousand people a day getting marked by hot toys. I'll pass. Got a "Chinese knock off" vaporiser and while not knocked out I see we have gotten a long way towards convenience and accuracy. Got a NO2 and like the digital accuracy and delivery but a little small for my tastes (and appetite). Got a Da Buddha and am very happy. Like the control and the fact that it is made of inexpensive materials so that the manufacturer can offer a lifetime warranty ($25 plus shipping) to repair any model. Does anyone know the story behind this, the best invention of the last century? How on earth did they devise this? I am thoroughly medicated and feel like a Native American and the buffalo. (we use every part of the gift and thank the Spirits.) Reclaim wand hash, cookies from butter and the ever popular peace pipe. You would think that that guy is all set. He tried a few things , found a sweet spot and is happy. But NO! VAS (vaporizer acquisition syndrome) strikes again. I am looking at log vapes (E Nano, Underdog.....) for further conservation and I currently have the Herbaliser in for verification. I am hoping for the best invention of this century. I read many different newsgroups and can't believe how this fell under my radar. I am presently attempting to give my acquaintances a chance to catch up. It seems that everyone has their own opinion and just like every other purchase you make you need to do some research. There isn't a one size fits all answer. Do you want portable? Stealthy? Hard Hitter? Glass, balloon or whip?Your budget is yours, I can't see in your wallet.
