    I’m a fan of a milk boil, yhen mixing in a pack of cocoa. If you’ve got a resiny stem, it will get you right.

    Soak the stem in ISO. Fill a jar up with ISO and let it soak for a couple of hours (I let it soak overnight). Works perfect for me

    Being the thrifty (cheap?) guy that I am I like to get as much out of my goods as possible and it always hurts a little to see all of that oil deposited in glass wasted. Like @tonuzzi I have a tendency to clean my glass by soaking it in ISO and it IS possible to evaporate that ISO and scrape up the goodness. However, that goodness is not so good, I'd even say it's kinda nasty and I find the taste so bad that vaping it by normal means is somewhat unpleasant. So it normally does get wasted here.
    I have seen others recommend what @mucsusn has suggested, heating something high fat like whole cows milk or coconut milk to melt the oil and then drinking it and have thought that is worth trying but I haven't tried it yet. The milk around here is always fat free. (That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it)

    Try it... with a nice sticky amber stem, it’ll be the best hot chocolate you’ve ever had. I believe @beyond6strings will stipulate to the same view.

    I’ve also infused some olive oil with glass stems and VC condensers. Then just make a long pasta and add sautéed garlic, parm and fresh basil. Fuck yeah...

    Before moving on to temp control I would test the mod and Zed by finding your preferred wattage setting and usage method first
    For me that's about 35w with an initial pre heat of about 5 seconds

    Thanks, this (after a revert to the factory firmware) did the trick.

    Gonna look into other modes some other time.

    I tried wattage mode first but encountered similar issues, however this seems to work now. Guess it's gonna take some getting used to. Pulling some decent clouds though, so it's all good now

    @RastaBuddhaTao I sent you my custom Z in for repair on the 25th and can’t get any answers on the turnaround time. Can you PM with an answer?

    I just added up all the weed I've bought since I got my Splinter and deducting my husband's usage I've put about an ounce through my XL8R stem. Is it wise to do all of that in one dose of milk?...Something tells me that most people don't let their stems get that dirty because they don't consume as much as I do.

    Haha yooooo, I did it. I haven't been this blitzed in a looooong time. Thanks for the tip about mixing cocoa in, I put a couple ounces of moka pot "espresso" in with it and some sugar. Cannamocha, my friends all laughed at me and called me Starbuds.

    I think RBT is on the road now? Saw something on Instagram, may be why warranty repairs haven't been active lately with even VGZ having trouble reaching him. I think it is a music/weed festival tour in an airstream if I'm not mistaken

    My Z? came. Did I get sent the wrong one? Resistance is .24 and the height is just over 2 inches. I checked my order and I did order a Z v2. The bottom of the box says "v2 qc".

    It does look like you got a Splinter. The Z is about 2 3/4 inches, about 1/2 inch longer than the Splinter. It's resistance is around .38 tho I fix it at .402.

    Yep, I got sent a regular Splinter on accident. 12:30 in the morning and @VGOODIEZ got back to me and fixed the shipping error. That's some good CS. It sucks to look at this and not get to hit it. Oh well.

    Received my replacement Purple Heart Z. My lord this is a thing of beauty. It feels lighter than the Chinese Z, and the wood is a sight to behold.

    Screwed it into my DNA mod, set the temp for 330, and let ‘er rip. This feels completely effortless now. The best vape I’ve ever tried now feels even better. Superb.

    Absolutely @Monk Debate, totally agree with you. I love my US Purple Heart Z, she hits great and no hot spots. I prefer it over my Chinese Splinter V2.

    My V2 is set to run hot on a rxg3d and is surprisingly even considering it can cache a bowl in four big hits at unrealistically low temps. I have a V1 and Z on dna mods and the V2 is still doing work. The cranked settings make it ideal for dense hits and rapid extraction when flavor isn't the priority.

    Has anyone else notice there's quite a lot more draw resistance to the Z as compared to the splinter? The thought was as lingering in the back of my mind but I had tucked the splinters away for a little bit. Been using both this week and I can tell easily the Z has a more restrictive draw. Heater screen is clean and I'm using the same stem to eliminate variables in the comparison.

    Maybe you're comparing a 2-hole to a 4-hole unit? Like your regular Splinter has four and the Z has two?
