    I have a question about the e-nail handle assembly, I thought it would be delivered already assembled but the e-nail and handle are separate.
    Anyway, the cable seems a bit too fat to fit into the handle, I watched this video
    Click to play YouTube Video
    and it seems a bit of a tight fit but with mine the 2 halves dont close together.
    Also is there any special way to wrap the twine around it?

    @Nina , search a region of the coil near end where the halves fit.
    Wrap it as you like it but the normal way is to fix one end with the screw and wrap the ribbon tight and strong up to the other end of the handle. Stick the end of the ribbon into the 2nd hole and fix it with a screw.
    Sorry, maybe I don't get your probs right.

    thanks @Hogni, I used the 2 holes to secure the ribbon, I think the handle is ok, I might e-mail them and ask if the not fitting is any kind of a safety issue.

    Tried it with some CBD flower in the glass bowl, works a treat, looking forward to having a go with the real thing later:D

    I agree, which is why I work out 6 days a week for 30 minutes a day on an elliptical, during which I run up hill for 3 miles . And on the 7th day I ride about 20 miles on my bike. Exercise is not an issue for me. ;) But regardless of this activity, the more I vape THC, the less effect it has on me.

    I love the NV handles but don't like the sticky feeling of the waxed hemp. So I changed it to a 1.5mm round vegetable tanned leather ribbon. Feels better and looks really awesome.

    Wow, great customer service from NewVape! Broken controller on Thursday, new one arrived today! Unfortunately, I have family in town so my time for experimenting will be limited until after I finish moving in a month. Am going to have to try a twax at some point though!

    great idea!
    I think I may well also customise the handle just to make it's a bit more personal
    I'll find some nice ribbon or something else pretty in my sewing box:)

    Try changing your routine. The time, the place and the device you use to get high.

    ...back on topic...

    Looking forward to ordering a VROD soon. Question for the vets. Is the carb cab needed? One of the appeals of the SH setup is it not needed at all.

    Dont forget..... changing strains, take a T break or hold your hit longer. ;).

    To tell the truth, time and place make little difference for me. Devices even less. Based on personal experience, I just have to moderate my consumption and save high THC fun (concentrates) for special occasions.

    I personally wouldn't order a Vrod without the Vrod carb cap. If you plan to use concentrates at all, you'll need the cap for sure.

    If you plan on going 100% flower, I guess you could get away without a cap. But the cap just gives you options in experimenting with even lower temps. And if you were for sure 100% flower only, I might lean towards the SH over the Vrod.

    I'm interested to hear what you think regarding taste, going back to dabs on the shower head. I'm really interested to hear others opinions too!
    Does dabbing off the quartz or SiC dish on a Vrod taste significantly nicer than Dabs off the shower head? How much does it effect the taste? Does the effects on taste take away from the flavour, or does it just change it slightly, and is this effect on taste only just perceivable?

    Reason I ask is that I've never done dabs yet, as I've not had access to concentrates here in Aus till now. I do have a glass banger and cap on its way from dhgate, that I ordered before coming across the FP, so I still have the option to dab off glass if I do choose to go with the shower head over the Vrod.

    Update on my Vrod SiC findings... again fiddling with the laser temp gun :science:

    It DOES give full vaporization of concentrates, under certain conditions so far that I've found. For each setup it will be different, but I think it boils down to what the surface temp is of the dish when application is made. For my setup so far it takes at least ~800f to reach ~500f surface temp, which does in fact boil everything as it should and this must be capped, because it can spread over such a large surface and seems to not vaporize everything instantly - the dish is huge! :clap:

    So the trick I figured is the ingenious design of unscrewing the carb cap and leaving it on the Vrod allows for the SiC dish to not only heat more evenly, but if left on for a few minutes before dabbing it actually raises the temp by almost ~40f I found on the cooler side of the dish! If the cap gets too hot or I want to take it off to vape flower (vaping flower at that temp with cap would definitely combust) I just pop it on the silicone mat.

    If anyone gets the Vrod, don't miss out - order the carb cap and SiC dish. You will thank yourself with all the experimenting you can do later. Oh one more thing for the time being... so far the flavor is better than quartz. What that means for me is, what I'm using is harsher in the quartz and smoother on the SiC - no question about it. :rockon:

    I'm wondering that nobody compared the new NV 28mm Sic dish to the D-Nail SiC up to now.
    Would be nice to hear about.

    Ok so I spent some time with the Flowerpot Showerhead starter kit and let's just say that I'm speechless. I won't say what's been said 10,000 times already, just my experience so far. Won't have any concentrates until later this week so only flowers so far. Been playing around between 580 and 710 and settled in at 600 for flowers and been locked in there. There is absolutely no learning curve. I've been reading this thread, watching videos and doing all sorts of homework before purchasing this. The wife had no idea. We work different shifts. The day that I set it up she was on her way to work and only had time to see the set up before leaving, never seeing me use it. Knowing what I was doing but not having much time, I used it at 700f the first time. I nicely melted my face off, slept and went to work that night. The wife got in from work later that night and with no instruction, video or knowledge of enails, dabbing etc. Sat down at the flowerpot and went to town...... all night. The following morning I came home and spent the whole morning playing with different temps. When my wife woke up, I went to show her how to use it and she died laughing!!! She then began showing me all the techniques she discovered the night before:doh: My parents were the same, no instructions needed . So far I'm locked in at 600f, with half a Pax scoop load. This gives me one big lung busting drag and nice even coffee brown avb. 4 or 5 of those and I'm wavy. Loving this thing so much that I'm looking at my apocalypse stash and ready to sell quite a few!!! Ordered a few more things so far, female and male stubby bowls, screens ti, glass bowls, cap stand etc. Shout out to Lori at Newvape, she has really been taking care of me and dealing with all my B.S.. @NewVape710 buy Lori lunch on me, she has really been taking care of NYC. I will pay $20 bucks for another scoop loader with my next order, just don't send it. Use that as the reimbursement for Lori's lunch, she's a rock star. I emailed her about my second order and it was delivered the same day she replied. Well damn..... Ok Lori, I see you :rockon:. New Yawk likes you:cool:
    Will report later with more findings after I get to the concentrates. Also planning on buying a whole entire Vrod kit. Will just put everything except the Vrod away as back up.

    I'm loving mine too:love::love:

    It's a pretty funky thing though isn't it, I mean I feel like I'm in a steampunk sci-fi film when I'm using it
    Steampunk.... is that the right genre for the flowerpot?

    I like how we all have our own techniques, parents included. No two of us use it alike. I have never been a micro doser, in fact, just traded off an enano because of that. However with the FP SH I'm very happy using half scoop one and done's. Wifey on the other hand wants 2 scoops like raisin bran:rolleyes:. Hey, whatever.... this thing is making me hate stirring!!!

    I still love my SH. But using it nearly exclusivley the whole year I'm sure that I've build up some tolerance to it's signature of efx like using the same strain over a longer time. It doesn't hit so much anymore by far. So I'll have a break to use more of my other too much neglected vapes.
    Do you know that developement?
    My gf still is using the SH only - much more than I do - and is so happy about that she dont understand my still existing VAS.

    I know exactly what you mean. But I don't think I need 4 Milaana's anymore LoL. Few others that may have to go. Herbalaire, Vapolution 2 etc. I have to think hard about the Vap 2 though even though I only used it 4-5 times, I keep it for certain reasons.

    Would be nice to hear about.[/QUOTE]
    I'll be offering my thoughts on the following either today or tomorrow ... as I have been pondering some of the same things. So here's what I'm planning on offering the comparisons on:
    - VROD w/ D-Nail Dish
    - VROD w/ NV Dish
    - D-Nail Slim w/ D-Nail Dish
    - D-Nail Slim w/ NV Dish

    NV has a very similar offering to the D-Nail Slim as well, if you want one for just concentrates (I talked to Edwyn @ NewVape about having a 14mm male base available too as well as the 14/18 combo ... I'm not a fan of the combo bases and would rather own a 14mm base that I could use in a 14/18 adapter without it seeming ridiculously tall! (or without adapter in my 14mm rigs))

    I'm just not sure w/ NV's offerings what one would use for a carb cap for directly on top of the NV SiC dish? ie. The following parts make a flat coil e-nail w/ a NV 28.5mm SiC dish (if one wants one just for concentrates, not for twaxing), however not sure about the carb cap:
    - https://www.newvape.com/enail-body-14-18mm-2586
    - https://www.newvape.com/quartz-short-screw-1
    - https://www.newvape.com/sic-dish-28mm

    @NewVape710 ... would the showercap fit on top of the 28.5mm dish directly? (the vrod carb cap wouldn't work as it would hit the nut in the middle without the vrod outer rim to keep it higher)

    I don't want to derail the thread but I must show you this brand new Sherlock by Herborizer. For sure it'd also work great with all FPs.
    BTW it's the new Herborier Ti Digi aside @Alexis got the very first sold one.

    EDIT: @JCat great! Eagerly waiting for your reports!

    “Ounces per week??”
    And I thought I was a heavy user jajajaja
    Almost an 1/8oz(3.5g) of flower per day here, and probably 5 to 10 dabs daily, depending on work load/schedule during day...
    Sometimes, when my tolerance starts running high due to “vaping”, I’ll come back to combustion, rolling spliffs only, smoking spliffs and vaping during the day will rewire my tolerance jajajaja.
    Stay vaped...

    I think it has about the right look for steampunk, but it would be even better if it had a steam-powered controller with analog dials instead of digital temp display, etc. :)

    I’m glad to see so many happy new users showing up! I wonder why so many in the last few days?

    I havent wrapped my handle, I'm very happy with just the bare metal tbh. It doesnt get hot, feels fine. I dont see myself adding the hemp wrap.

    If you can, get one for the sake of dabs, and a SiC dish, the taste improvement on dabs is well worth it. Its pretty much the same experience with flower as the SH so you know how that goes with regards to the carb cap. Dabs its essential to have, IMHO.

    If you're considering dabs, go straight to the SiC dish. I had the SH since it was launched, the dabbing experience was night and day here between SH and VRod w/SiC dish with regards to flavour, and lung irritation (for me).

    All hail the SiC dish!
