    As @steama said, a lot of people now seem to think calling is out of the ordinary, a bother to some. People have really lost touch with their fellow neighbor it seems. A phone call will get a new ceramic rod with perfect communication, almost guaranteed.

    I called them and the fellow told me to mail it in and he will fix whatever is wrong with it for a flat fee of $25.

    He said that the heating rod was bombproof and rarely goes out. He was thinking it was the knob -it goes out much more often than the ceramic ever does.

    Cool.

    Similar situation with my DBV. i'd rather have a $25 flat fee than a lifetime guarantee with lots of conditions.

    Hey guys it's been awhile since I've been on here,I've been so busy with work.
    I have been considering downsizing a couple of my vapes
    I have a limited edition ssv and some extra accessorys and glass.
    Has a nice carry case and is in great shape.
    What would be a reasonable price to ask? Obviously I would post a bunch of pictures in the buy and sell forum

    Run the advance option on an eBay search for your vape and select completed auction. That will get you an idea of prices on that market. Its a place to start. Good Luck

    You can find the ssv for around the same price as an EQ. I would go for a ssv honestly, there are also lots of other great options nowadays, but if whip is what you want, I’d go ssv.

    The vape choices you have listed are very popular and you are right there are often different advantages with different vapes. If you can tell us what you are looking for out of a new vape you may get different (possibly better) suggestions. The devil is always in the details.:)

    Any possibilities for you to try both of them ?
    This would surely solve your question ! ;)

    To my point SSV with @DDave mod kit satisfied all my expectations !

    I dont know how to use the quotes properly yet so will answer all at once and hopefully everyone can keep up with me....for a start im looking for a more satisfying hit to the chest if you get me,the volcano is too smooth in a way,unless you want to make it a herb hog!ive got a high tolerance so something that hits hard is needed as well.i vape alone almost always so want this to be an ideal solo vape as i already have the party piece so to speak.i dont have any vaping friends(im leading the way in my circle ) so i cant try either of them out before i buy,im leaning towards thr ssv just because i think withb it being a dedicated whip vape is must be better than the extreme.

    Tell me more about the ddave mod lol ive seen one for the extreme

    HIT HARD = SSV !
    Reliability = SSV !

    Ddave mod are on his website (link in his signature ;)), and you can find a pic early in this post (just a page before;) )where i show how i use the microdosing kit.
    For me it's a must have with such a device !
    Can't tell about the extreme, i've never tried it !

    The main point about this kit is "the more is the less !!!"

    The 7th Floor family of corded vapes (SSV, LSV and Da Budda) will probably meet you desire for a hard hitter but in that role it can turn into a big user of bud.

    On the other hand If you can lay your hands on an 18.8 mm male to male adapter and an Extreme Q basket screen you can sample some of the advantages of the D Dave mods with a smaller commitment of time and money. Don't get me wrong I have one of the ddave kits in use but there are similarities between the DIY and the Dave kits in the way I use them.

    Ok,so how much is typically used in one load before a ddave mod is brought into the equation?also,the cheapest price ive found is for a n ssv with an american 110v plug on it,is it as simple as just getting an adaptor for the socket to use in the uk?

    @Larrytargeteye : After having bought an "amazon SSV" from UK myself, and even if the seller was friendly and competent, i'm sure you can't get a better deal than the one you might get directly from 7th floor. You'll get a flawless aftersale customer service BTW !!!

    If i had to do it again, i would go for the factory order, without any doubt !

    Just go on their website, order the version and the electric cord you like/want and you'll never regret the few bucks you think you've add… in fact you get a perfect package, with high end customer service !!! just go for oil kit or dry content and you're done !

    If you can afford it, just test the différent versions… ground glass, sphérical ground glass and standard glass... prefered one for me is ground glass with Ddave mod...
    OR
    A friend of yours has it already and you just have to test the version that suits you the best ;)

    Yet standard version is loaded with twice the amount of material i use in Ddave mod. but it depend on your settings with that kit… ie. how you place your screen in the stem..


    I have a question for all of you, SSV users…
    HOW LONG IS YOUR WHIP ?
    Did you shorten it ? Why ? More functionnal whip ? Hotter ? tastier ? What's the aim of such a cut^^ ?

    Of all the vaporizers I have throughout my house, the SSV is my daily workhorse. I'm seriously considering downsizing (not selling, just boxing up) my other equipment. 7th Floor simply nailed it with this one IMHO. A fresh filled wand lasts about 2 days (happy hour sessions)... Not bad. I keep the knob at the 10:30 position (mostly).

    @Larrytargeteye , my scale is not that much precise, i'm affraid i can't answer that question…
    Just test it with your medication needs… according to me, my Dynavap Omni XL does take less material than my SSV with the classic glass wand. With the @DDave mod kit, my SSV and my Omni material needs are equals.. I do take more puff from Omni as i heat it with an induction lighter. Way more precise and accessible for me than the Jet torch lighter.

    I guess you'll have to test it by yoursel to find out what fullfill your needs the best.

    It's still complex for me, i'm in my "learning curves", realizing that "Less is more"…
    one big hit with twice less material and i get medicated way enough…
    BUT, as @PieceFrog said, my SSV is althought my daily workhorse, flawlessly ! Omni is my "mobile" device vape.
