    I think they would rather sell another unit then save 5% and keep it in stock.

    Would 5% less of a discount dissuade you from a Z? Not me.

    Even an add'l. 5% on a $49 stem helps especially when you still have to figure in shipping.

    Edited to add:
    I'm sorry, almost there, but I just see it as an annoyance to have to peruse all items on a website to save an add'l. 5%. Why not just give everyone the 10% off from the gitgo. It's not like perusing the website is gonna lead to more purchases. It's a niche market & everyone already knows what they want from the gitgo. Sometimes you get too old for nonsense like this.

    If you figure out the code and save 10% you win the FULL _ _ _ _ _.

    C'mon. it's a game. I'm not going to ruin it for everyone. Quite frankly, it's so simple if you can't figure it out... well, never mind.

    Besides, aren't I supposed to be on your ignore list? I did request that, please. LMAO

    The code isn't for me @Hackerman, it's for @started@52. I thought he needed it. I wasn't trying to figure it out. I'm not buying anything.

    I don't have an ignore list. I'm suppose to be on your ignore list, so please feel free.

    Well I enjoyed the contest thought was a bit of fun. I hope the clues allowed @started@52 to get in on the extra 5% off.

    I've seen a photo of someone using the tubo capsule stem in an OG splinter but I really don't know how well it works. @Alan is currently making his capsule stems for the iHeat, you can pm him to get the details of compatibility with the splinter Z

    I have several of the Tubo capsule stems.

    My Splinter does not have a deep enough bowl to accommodate the Tubo Stems, however, the Splinter Z has sufficient clearance.

    I have been using 40 watts on the Squid and finally getting reliable cloudage. I tried TC on a Wisemec, and a Tesla and the performance was hit and mostly miss. Since going to strictly wattage, and no ten second time out, everything is great.

    Okay FC friends a few quick thoughts in high merry mood. I have just done a little more testing. Only my 3rd Z session so far I think, but much better results tonight by far.
    Not exactly sure why.
    But my first session where I had charring and hotspots, plus a combustion incident at 50 Watts because I wasn't getting the results I was expecting- was with especially finely ground herb, with Gr8tr fine plate and dry weed.

    Tonight- coarse plate. I haven't been able to install any firmware yet so just power mode. 33 W, 4 sec preheat, then inhaling steadily, releasing button before cutoff, re-press and hold for 15 secs total maybe.

    Nice clean flavour. And visible vapor. Up to 35 W. Same, 4 sec preheat, draw steady for over 15 secs.
    No big hits but very visible. Smooth. Then up to 38 W. 5 sec preheat. Faster draw and very good hits, milk etc. But so smooth.

    2 full baskets. Abv was very very even throughout tonight. No hotspots or charring.
    Im sure the fine fine grind was responsible first session. Also blocking air and vapor production.

    The exact same material in my other vaporizers would not have caused a noticeable problem so I would say that this type of device is more prone to this problem with a very fine grind.
    Not a downside, just something to be mindful of.
    So I was very impressed with the eveness of the extraction and also the lightness of the herb.

    The vapor was extremely smooth and pleasant right to the end of the load. Honestly more pleasant than my other current devices. I am spoiled for flavour by the Elev8r and some others, so the Z doesn't overwhelm me I take it for granted, but it's sure has it's own unique taste profile and I tasted my strains differently to any other vape yet. Very pure and clean, like the less pleasant side is more absent/less detectable than usual.

    @nachooo I took notice of your comments on the body effects with the Z because my initial feelings were that it is not a sedative high but quite energising. Which I like. But as I lie here resting after my two baskets tonight, I see I feel those nice body effects, without a sedative for couch lock feeling though. It kind of reminds me of the way that really good LSD would be surprisingly physical.

    I think it's just a testament to how well the Z delivers the actives. I like the effects very much. Nice and full, it is an experience not just a thrill.

    Still too soon to see if I will be able to tolerate and use this vape. Seems much better tonight. Need to try TC mode next etc, still quite intimidated by it but Im willing. :)

    Can't get it to produce vapor except at 50W....

    Just got it the Z.
    My mod is a Kangertech SubBox...50w max power.....1 battery

    I screw it in to mod. Set mod to 32w and press button 4 secs to preheat. Let go. Press again and hold and inhale for 10 secs. Let go of button and exhale.....

    Sound right so far?


    Edit....... was packed wrong. Am now getting vapor at 40w. I'll keep trying for 32w as the internet claims that is the sweet spot

    Nah the sweet spot is the setting that matches your natural draw speed. Some use it dry, some through water, some sip, some rip!

    What's important is that you find a power setting that counteracts exactly your draw speed (which should stay steady and constant) By finding that sweet spot you should avoid any risk of charring and have a nice natural temperature stepping until the end of your session, when the glass is heat soaked properly.

    Also you get a lot of vapor after you release the trigger with RBT heaters. They have a lot of inertia and store a lot of heat. It's not 50/50 on/off but you can definitely continue drawing about 1/3 of the time you had the trigger on, and it will keep pouring and pouring (and as the temperature decreases you have the insurance that you'll never combust or char)

    Interesting because this is exactly what I was trying to gauge and although I had a business test and taking note conditions in poor evening lighting, my gut was kind of telling me what you are saying here in terms of continued vapor production from the accumulated heat. I definitely felt it dropped off in less than half the time I held the button. Like 3-4 seconds,

    So I think my aim would be to use the button press to get it milking to my preference, and learn to release just as the hit is reaching its max required size before letting go for several more seconds.
    As in- although there is still more heat, I think I would have more control over the hit I take by holding the button for most of my draw to get milk going fully, then lift off and clear as soon vapor thins.

    I was testing the waters with button hold, going well over 10 seconds most draws but in daylight it would be easier to observe vapor and draw a better line.
    There is a learning curve with this one but I can see it becoming quite intuitive with a little time.

    I think for wattage it's more important to learn to ride the excess heat. Where in Temp control it isn't as much as a concern.

    In wattage the temperature keeps climbing as long as your pressing the fire button. You can control it to a point with lower wattage but risk less clouds.
    If you increase the inhale rate the lower wattage does not provide the heat needed to compensate.
    If you raise it too high risk charing. Takes more trial and error to find the sweet spot in wattage.



    In TC once it reach a set temperature it throttles power to maintain the temperature. So the device doesn't get as hot as does in wattage mode. I normally keep my finger depressed most of the draw well in TC mode.
