    If anything can replicate that for you, the FlowerPot’s one of the most likely contenders. If you set it to a high temp you can get near the edge of combustion with a lot less risk of going over because you’re delivering more consistent heat.

    I’ve never used a brick so I can’t compare them, but so far you have at least a couple of people telling you the VRod works better for them...it’s up to you whether or not you want to believe them, but it is widely recognized as one of the best, most reliable and hardest hitting desktops around.

    From what @Stonocrates said it seems like you shouldn’t expect to be blown away by much better effects than the best you can get from the Max with good technique, but a beginner can nail good FP technique quickly and get consistent results; I don’t think that’s usually true for a SB.

    Since they do basically work in the same way though (pulling hot air through flower), and they’re both capable of combustion temps and beyond, my guess is the range of effects you can get if you know what you’re doing should not be all that different - although some people will disagree, probably on both sides.

    The VRod doesn’t require breathing in the fumes from a torch though, which is a plus for me, and it’s easy and consistent with great effects. :)

    @stinkytofus Not that I will not buy an SBL product, quite the contrary.. regardless I'm sorry bro, but sounds like too much work and the stars have to align, meanwhile the FP can get the job done with very little effort and it's an enjoyable ritual on top of that!

    For sure, I’ve never used a brick and most people in this thread probably haven’t, but @Stonocrates has a couple and said you could get results as good as the Maxx but more easily and consistently.

    @Hollabackatcha may or may not be as proficient with a brick and torch as you, but in your other thread he said he put his away in favor of the ShowerHead a year ago.

    If any other SBL users want to discuss the pros and cons in more detail it might be best to do it in stinkytofus thread about it in the Ask FC section, but I’d be happy to hear from more people about it too.

    Other than that, like I said my guess is you’ll get something like your best hits with the Maxx on a regular basis rather than under or over doing it as I think a lot of people do more often than they’d like with bricks.

    There is at least one way the FlowerPot should get you significantly stronger effects though - dabbing on top of flower. Otherwise, I’d probably look at it more as a different (and more consistent) way to get to a similar place based on what I’ve heard so far - assuming that Hollabackatcha wasn’t getting the best possible results from his brick, which may not be a safe assumption...

    Personally I think the ShowerHead and VRod were both well worth buying (although I’d steer almost everyone to the VRod today), but like they really reduce my VAS for other hard-hitting desktops, I can understand your hesitance at the idea of spending that much to try something that you don’t know will give you better effects.

    Really though, there’s only so much you can get out of flower without combusting...if flower’s not cutting it for you, a rosin press may be a good place to put your money next. Or you could try to lower your tolerance if you don’t have to have high doses for medical purposes. ;)

    By the way, used FlowerPots are generally safe to buy and they come up in the classifieds occasionally. You can also buy the minimum stuff you’d need to try it out for ~$200-300 (less if you have a suitable coil and controller already) if you think it might work for you but you’re not ready to buy the whole kit up front.

    Cheers mate! Trying the post again till it gets stuck, might not even but more conscious of putting it on square (although it’s designed so well it takes a complete idiot to not do it right easily and naturally anyways ) but I don’t mind using the spike, I’ve got used to the little ritual of putting the heater in the hole, dumping the bowl reloading and going again, storing back on the spike. My stand just says “hot” I will check this hot TI bussiness as well as this new carb cap!

    @VaporWare

    I’d have to agree, those direct heat butane vapes once honed in can get as good as a Vrod, although more stirring I generally find (I don’t stir my Vrod) but through a glass and newbies they can be combustion city! Vrod on the other hand is plug and play out of the box with a bit of draw technique required for max performance otherwise almost no learning curve. Best vape I’ve found for showing new people, plus the glass bowl goes away when people come around and I only ever worry about my glass breaking not a beloved vape like how my butthole would tense up when my evo was in a room near anyone on anything.

    @stinkytofus

    I own most of the vapes you mentioned and in my opinion the Vrod is measurably superior for various reasons, performance being just one. You can get up there in performance with what you have and some would argue maybe even on par, so if money’s tight it’s not the greatest leap but if you have got an itch that needs to be scratched I’d be checking out some Vrod videos.

    I havent used the sticky brick line but I owned their precursors, the lily and daisy by triihouse.

    Both were fine vapes in their own ways but... theres just no comparison. Obviously, that doesnt mean any combination of FP will necessarily suit your personal needs but I dont own my triihouse vapes any more, or use any other vapes at all tbh :)

    I dont think i will want another desktop for a while..... the flowerpot and volcano dont leave much to be desired.

    I already have the complete flowerpot showerhead bundle. What parts would i need to convert to the vrod? Trying to price it out

    You need the main VRod part (which includes a SiC dish these days), the VRod carb cap, and if you’re interested you can pick up some little spheres to put in the dish. If you don’t already have a Ti post you might want one of those too. :)

    No problem! One more thing though; I was assuming you’re using a coil from NewVape or something that has the same dimensions.

    If your coil is from NewVape you’ll be fine and you can skip the next paragraph.

    If it’s a 3rd party coil, compare the specs on your coil vs NewVape’s before ordering because the VRod is more form-fitting on the coil than the ShowerHead is. Also check the direction the coil is wrapped in since you might need the “reverse” VRod.

    Interested in the sapphires although honestly, much to I’m unsure my pleasure or distain, I don’t really dab large hits, pepper corns really. I see some of the dab videos and feel like such a skirt, but it’s nice and economical. I can see how those big waste it to taste it pools would benifit from the sapphires, but I tend to finish it in one or two hits. If it say takes me a little second hit 50% of the time, do people think sapphires are enough to get it down to one and done fairly consistently? They aren’t even big second hits, I just hate seeing that vapor out the carb cap hole. I don’t always see it but if I do! I’ll give it another suck haha

    I also have not seen a video of them used in round e-nail dishes like this, just the big quarts things. Does one need an especially small sapphire to work in the Vrod? Sometimes it’s hard to tell on video but the torch heated banger videos I’ve seen with them the dish seemed pretty large.

    I consider a peppercorn size dab to be plenty large, you're not alone! And yes, I think you would absolutely benefit from adding some sapphire pearls to your arsenal as well.

    Not only will you be able to finish more/all of the hit at once, but you will also be able to lower the temps too.

    You need 5mm pearls to work in the Vrod. Unfortunately it seems most people selling sapphire/ruby pearls sell them in 6mm. I know swissjewel.com sells them in 5mm. They used to have a $50 minimum order, but not sure if that's still the case or not.

    Trust me, you won't regret getting some sapphire/ruby pearls. It really does take your dab game to the next level.

    Exactly! This is one of the biggest selling points and it's never really brought up from what I can see. Warranty doesn't even matter, the main components will last multiple lifetimes.

    I don't see how that Maxx beats out the VROD. This is by far the most satisfying vape and draw I've ever experienced, and I started on box mods in the mid 2000s. Also almost no learning curve. Had someone who never got high before use it last night and they had 0 issues. Concentrate/flower combo hits are also a breeze, it truly is amazing.

    Definitely the closest experience to "smoking" I've ever had from a vape, from the vapor quality to the process involved. These guys hit it out of the park.

    Yea you cant really go wrong with the flowerpot. I cant really drool over vapes anymore lol. I got it for those reasons its super durable and easy to hand to a friend and they will love it. All my friends that come over always want a taste. Even some of the ones that do not smoke.

    Oh goody going to have to try some!!

    Assumed they’d be cut off to me with the set up on this, they look awesome! Is there a see through carb cap for this thing? Or is it a universal sizing of kind? Love to see them hopping about in there.
    And thanks for the reassurance on the pepper corns I’d call myself a heavy user vaping and smoking and often dabbing, but never large. Most videos I’ve seen tend to be twice as large as I use minimum.

    My newvape PID controller's out light blinks all the time. It buzzes when it does as well. How can I stop it from blinking??? Root cause?

    imho & expertise, I wouldn’t worry about a darker ring.
    It comes and goes with temperatures or drawing speeds.
    I’d be way worried if you’re not getting any browning.
    Ring or not ring, you should be looking for green specks. Those are NOT VAPED BUD.
    Browns or darker browns is already ABV.
    DO NOT WORRY ABOUT ABV UNLESS IS GETTING TOO BLACK.
    DIFFERENT COLORED RINGS IS ALREADY ABV.
    Or am I not thinking this throughout??


    Someone will help you on that or go to NewVape YouTube channel.
    Auto calibrate once in a while, or sometimes when your PID readings start to go like “OFF”


    Happens the same to my quartz balls.
    Time to try SiC balls.
    I’m sure ruby or sapphire balls will get residues too, since they are glasses too.
    But $20, that’s kind of steep for just balls, considering NV SiC dishes are only $20ish :(

    This light is blinking all the time in mine. I believe it’s normal.
    Are you 110V or 220V??
    New or old house wiring??
    Electric heating??
    How many people at the same time at home or same building power grid??
    Are all your home electric appliances ON at the time of usage??
    My room buzzs like a bee hive with so many electronics and heavy hitters desktops and PIDs.
    I’m not really sure where the buzz is coming.

    Certain strains make my buzz/ear ringing stronger, specially wake & “vaking”.
    Durban Poison, strong landrace sativa, vape through any of my VRODs or Showerhead will make my auditory system buzz like I’m an years resident in an asylum jajajaja
    Stay vaped.

    Out light blinking is normal behaviour.

    Buzzing of the flowerpot itself or the pid, in my humble experience, isnt something I would consider normal.

    Hey guys, not been on the board for a few months and I know new vape moves fast! Vrod still the king of the household and getting even more usage now we have access to a press :rockon:

    I haven’t caught up yet so sorry if this has already been covered ( I did check all the official new vape account posts) but does the new vrod carb cap with the angled holes work with the rev a/absolute v1 vrod (with the dnail sic dish)? If so what was the general consensus on the number of holes (or was it far too user preference?)? What’s better for spinning terp pearls? Does the 4 hole mean you don’t need to spin the cap when dabbing?

    Indeed. Mine stuck so much it ended up making me have to buy a new nut for my Showerhead. Over time it oblonged the hole from sticking. The TI post resolved all those issues.

    I'm also curious how the differing number of holes affect the carb cap. My bundle included a single hole with no option or indication there were others. Now I see there's a 4 hole and it seems that would work a bit better. Honestly not even sure why they would offer the different models? I'd probably ask a buddy to drill my single hole cap rather than order another. Pointless to have more than 1 imo.
