    I personally love the branding on NV stuff.

    Can’t wait to grab one along with the stubby stand.

    hey guys, i was reading alot on this forum as im getting ready to buy the flowerpot, and i came across an interesting thread. somebody was saying that its hard to use a FP with a dewar style rig because the joint sits really low. they also said its hard to find dropdowns/adapters for this piece...is this true?

    https://www.dhgate.com/store/product/ccg-new-2017-glass-water-pipes-glass-bongs/407153389.html


    i really love the piece in the link above but im worried it may not fit with the FP.

    I have that exact pipe, in that exact color.
    No problem at all using the FP with it. It's a nice pipe. :)

    No, I just use a bowl straight out the top. Sometimes a particle trap in between, if I'm going to camp out with the piece for a while. :)

    I have the same pipe as well.

    Love it and it's my DD for flowers, but I did need a super deep 18mm to 14mm reducer to fit it. I am not sure if yours will come the same, but after finding a 14mm bushing adapter that fits, I use my 14mm shovelhead and it works perfectly. I usually end up pulling the adapter out as well when I'm clearing the bowl.

    Im starting to think I like the metal bowl more for fit and pure aesthetics, but I prefer the glass for flavour and visual feedback...

    I want both!

    And I want the moon on a stick!

    Seems like it would be easier to carry versus the current base options, so good for travel. I also like @Hogni 's idea for a hole to hold a pick/dab tool.

    My friend Im so sorry to see you are afflicted with a terrible condition- you want and expect the unreasonable! It is a very challenging condition to live with and has been known to bring about excruciating disappointment.

    All due to people simply wanting too much to ask for. I heard of one such case where a guy bought the Flowerpot Showerhead one day, PRESUMING his divine right to actually USE it. Silly fool!:rofl:

    Seek immediate help before it is too late (but don't expect to get it!) ;)

    Hey guys! I already asked this by PM to a nice forumite, but I also would like to hear your public oppinion, that way some others in my situation can obtain help from this post.

    I have an Arizer V-Tower (extreme q with no fan/balloons) with the Ddave mod, and I'm seriously thinkng about getting the FP SH, after reading a lot, and though I'd only vape flowers, seems to be the best option for the money.

    The thing is....I'm based in Europe, and I was just up to buy the enail in DHGate and the showerhead set and the bowl separately, which would cost around 275€ (and would probably have to deal with customs because of the enail from DHGate), I would even add a stand/debowler (85€ more), which would make the thing around 360€....... but I just saw that the Flowerpot Starter Kit is available in Vapefiend for 428€: https://vapefiend.co.uk/collections/newvape/products/flowerpot-twax-starter-kit?lshst=collection

    It adds the carb cap, handle..... and it is really only around 70€ more.I already have glass, so....

    Maybe the kit is a good option, since you get all together from Vapefiend, no customs issues from UK and don't have to buy the enail from China and deal with customs, which will save me a headache, but I'd like to hear your oppinion.428€ is, at the end, a lot of money for a vaporizer.

    I really think the FP SH can be a really good improvement in my sessions over the Arizer V-Tower, for all I've readed, the FP hits way harder, which is what I'm really looking for, but I'd be very disappointed if I don't get noticeable better "results" than with the V-Tower.

    So....do I buy the essential pieces from Vapefiend and get an enail from China, or is the kit from Vapefiend worth it? Is the money worth the improvement over a V-Tower in your oppinion?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Awaiting my
    Just depends on your $$ situation. Getting the kit, you know everything is going to show up at the same time and its all going to fit perfectly. I dont know what the prices for flower are in the UK but in the states the cost of this setup is about the same as a couple of ounces. I can tell you that this will be the last vaporizer you will ever need. Nothing in my collection comes close to this thing. I actually just bought a second unit with the a battery pack so I can be mobile. :D

    Possibly not.

    I only have a 14mm post for my shovelhead bowl. If you have an 18mm post, you may be able to keep the post low enough to make a seal without needing anything else.

    edit: in US, cost of a vrod/SH setup is around 1.5-2oz of ganja (in my area, etcetc)

    easily worth it. it's coming up on a year I've had my flowerpot now and it has drastically changed my views of vaping and how i vape my flower

    edit2: i don't use dropdowns and idk which would fit this pipe, sorry

    So I totally want to take advantage of the 710 sale on NV's site today, SH or Vrod? I do dab, BUT I have the 710life 20mm coil. I think the coil spins in the wrong direction to fit the internal machining of the new Vrod design, so I think it may be best paired with the SH. On the other hand I've thought it might not make a difference, the coil may still fit inside the Vrod... any thoughts?

    If you do dabs give the VRod a go for sure! If you use another coil there only helps trial and error to find your sweet spot. Dialed temp has to be a lot higher than recommanded here I guess.
    If you should have a 5 wrap coil wrapped to the "wrong" direction it's questionable whether the coil fits into the VRod cause of it's tight measures of place for the coil I fear.

    First- definitely get the Flowerpot. Just wipe away all doubt and uncertainty now. If you end up being somewhat disappointed (unlikely) then I dont think it would be all that bad. But this is not even an option in my mind. So let's move on.

    It is not guaranteed that you will pick up Customs fees by ordering the controller from China from that same seller it seems hit and miss how they declare the value many people have ordered from DHgate and this particular seller and controller without paying any Customs but sometimes people are picking up Customs fees for the same items from the same seller although this does not tend to happen with the glass sellers, where personally I have never paid any Customs ordering glass from China touch wood (or glass).

    So if I was you I would just do the exact same thing I did myself last year when I bought my Showerhead kit. Just figure out exactly what you want/need. Write it all down on paper. Add up the sums and totals of the possible prospective order routes.

    Then compare the totals to see what is best value overall or most logical compromise. It may be that the full kit direct from Vapefiend is the best deal, and you should have all the essential parts you need.
    And factor in the possibility of customs on the China controller, (basically 20% plus £8 postal fee here in UK).
    Then when it is all clear in front of you you should be able to more clearly see the pros and cons to make up your mind more easily.

    Good luck man you wont regret it.

    I was n the same situation, i got everything from @VapeFiend.com and did not regret it. You will have a MUCH harder hitting Vape than your V-Tower.

    Customs can get quite expensive and where i am from in Europe, sometimes you have to browse the Web sitting at customs together with them to find out how much something really costs and what taxes apply - not too great with MJ related products....
    And i guess it would be a nice plus to have an european vendor if you need guaranty or service...

    These are just my :2c:, others are more brave :rockon:

    Whatever you do, just do it and enjoy the mighty FP! Welcome :tup:

    OK so I took advantage of the Freedom code on 7/4 and got the email battery, chases, and another coil/handle, shovel head bowl. Love the portablitliy of this this a it keeps everything locked in. Move it around the house when I dont want to be tethered to my vape station.

    So using the exact same water piece and same temps... the new portable unit seems to be running hotter. It is one of the new 20mm coils and the only other difference is the shovel head bowl instead of a pan head. I dropped it down 10deg to 640 and still seems like it is cooking bowls faster. Do you think this is the new controller/coil or the different between Shovelhead and Panhead bowls?

    I love the VROD so much I just used the 710day code to order a second one for my portable unit. They need to get busy and make some new shiny shit for me to buy. I have almost got one of everything now.
