Personally, I give a very slight edge in flowers only to the Showerhead. The reason I give that slight edge to the SH is the ability to have high temp, uncapped, fast and hard rips with the SH. I can achieve the same vapor quality and density with the VRod as I do the SH, but I have to use a cap and lower temps. There's nothing technically wrong with this, as I said, I can achieve the same vapor quality as with the SH. But sometimes I like to have the free flowing, unrestricted nature the SH can provide. Just hit and rip it as hard as you can. If I use the same high temp, uncapped technique with the VRod, I get the ring around the edge. I have one of the OG VRods, but have put in the Rev B plug into my center hole. It definitely helped the situation, but I still have a ring. The ring is closer to the edge of the bowl than without the Rev B plug, but it's still there if hit a certain way. So if you never have plans to use concentrates, I'd still give the edge to the SH. It gives you that ability to just rip it with even extraction. But if ever factor in concentrates, the Vrod definitely comes out ahead.
