    The dreamwood vapes are very reasonable and the designs are really interesting. I don't know how shipping is from Germany but surely you could fit one of those in until you have money saved for a woodscent or one of the other expensive vapes.
    I've failed to work a few of the butane vapes. The vapman is one of those. I know I'm in the minority or even maybe the only one. I didn't even try the Lotus because of that. But the vapcaps and Daisy/Lily have been simple to use.

    I actually think the Lotus is the easiest one to use of my butane vapes. I mostly use the wpa and an ashcatcher with a j-hook on the lotus. It's an excellent experience. The taste is incredible. The only thing is you have to not push it too far or combustion can occur. The thing about it though, its really fun to push it and see how big a hit you can get. But if you moderate the heat and take nice smooth draws, the taste will be there.

    I have been using my Vapcap M more often recently. I need some more practice with it but so far I love it! I know I will love an Omni and do plan to purchase one when I have the funds. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the M. I can get great flavor from it but I dont get the same consistency yet. For me, these butane vapes take some time to learn. I have the Lotus down pretty good when I'm not being stupid trying to break a cloud record or something. I just need some more practice with the M and it will come to me.

    If I have learned nothing else in this life, the patience is a virtue line still holds true.

    Cheers :)

    While I'm waiting for a comparison of the DLX and other butane vapes I'd like to hear how the lithe compares to other butane ones as well. I've never heard of it before and probably won't buy another butane- other than a DLX but I'm curious.

    I have one of the original omni's and rarely use it but I know the new ones are very different. I mainly use one of the ti vapcaps with a long thin stem made by pp here. And I use the same stem with the woodscent for cooling.

    Shipping is not going to be expensive as I live in the EU.
    My main concern is that I can't really see it entering my regular rotation while one of the other two vapes I mentioned will probably become my main at home unit.

    That sounds really strange toi me, I find the Vapman to be the easiest butane vape to master. Just heat in slow bursts and draw until it starts making vapor than try to keep the bowl at the same temp. If you take another quick hit just heat for a couple of seconds, if you wait more heat it more. I never really counted seconds with my Vapman and after a while it just becomes second nature.
    But I know that we are all different so there will be someone around wondering how I can be so stupid to keep combusting in my Lotus as to him it seems the easiest vape around.

    In my Omni I find that among the things that affect consistency the most most there's how fine you grind and how tight you pack. Try using unground nugs pieces, it works very well especially dry.

    @little maggie I finally have both the DLX Pro and DLX One, I'll do some side-by-side soon and see which I like better. My DLX One gives off more of a wood taste than my Pro, it's made out of "karellian grain birch" though. It might take longer for that to go away. I like the wooden bowl on the Pro more so far. I have trouble with getting the screen to stay still in the glass on the One, but I need to mess with the shape more and see if I can get a better fit.

    I took a side-by-side pick, it's easier to see the difference that way:

    Which is the pro and which the one? It looks like 18mm stems. Is that accurate? And when you're ready, could you also add the lily and brick to the comparison?

    DLX Pro on the left, DLX One on the right. I'm 100% sure the DLX One is 14mm, it comes with a 14mm to 18mm glass adapter. I'm 95% sure the DLX Pro is also 14mm.

    Ooooh, staying objective while comparing to the lily/brick/daisy will be tough. I love those, they're in my "bury me with them" category.

    Very interested in this, let us know!
    Do you have any experience with the Lotus? I'm also interested in a comparison among it and the triihouse/bricks style vapes as they are all torch powered convection units.

    Unfortunately I haven't used a lotus, I've always wanted to though. I'm a little embarrassed to say I actually had no idea it was convection until now. I thought it used the plate more like the vapman for conduction. Damn it, I was already tempted to get one before...
