Hi all, I'm a total vapor newb and first time poster on the fuck combustion forums. After lurking for a few days, this place has really educated me on vaporizers. I've used the volcano dozens of times, and always loved the clear tasty hits that it made, but i don't think the price is fair and i find it a hassle to use. I've decided to quit smoking tobacco once again after 15 years, and Friday will be my first smoke free day. As such, I want to start consuming my buds with vaporizers and edibles as opposed to bong rips and joints. Right now I'm completely torn between the silver surfer and the extreme vaporizers as I'm sure others are. The SSV has almost proven itself to be a worthy unit based on this video alone: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CG0xQXCevRA - those rich juicy hits have almost sold me. However, after watching many (promotional ) videos of the extreme, it looks like it could be able to deliver the same hits with the whip, but I have yet to see any decent videos of it in action. Also, because the whip can freely rotate around the top, the extreme looks like it would be much more convenient to use, especially with several people. Although the remote and lights are a bit much I think, I really like the options and warranty. BeingCanadian built is also a bonus to me. I just don't want to walk away paying ~$100 more for fancy options when I'm not going to get as good of hits as with the SSV. But if the hits are on par with the SSV, the added convenience alone will be worth the extra cost to me. I plan on getting one of these 2 vaporizers, and also an iolite on Friday as a commitment to myself so time is of the essence I'd like to hear anyones opinions on the extreme, especially those that have also used the SSV. Thanks in advance, and sorry if this thread is in the wrong forum. edit: I also wanted to know how easy it is to repack the bowl in the extreme. It looks like it could be a pain in the ass to deal with the bowls as they appear to attach directly to the heat core.
