    Yeah, I didnt realize that... lol. The other thread was made over a year ago before it had been labeled the spyre I guess.

    Possibly a mod could combine / change the name of the threads to avoid confusion and update an old thread title?

    mod note: Done. Not sure why it wasn't reported before now (May 25)

    So we load buds into the first chamber, then it grinds into the 2nd chamber where the material gets heated, then you suck the resulting vapor back out of the first/grinding chamber?
    Reviews should be interesting:popcorn:

    I emailed them a few weeks ago asking if I could come by to try it out before making a purchase but unsurprisingly they declined. They said they would be attending some events in the Bay Area after release, so I will wait and see if they turn up anywhere and report back.

    I can already see an issue with the Grinder getting stuck very often. I hope it works well though.

    Hmm....for some reason FC wasn't emailing us updates when someone posted, so we didn't see your questions. I'm glad I logged in and checked.

    I'm glad everyone is excited to try the Spyre out. We'll release videos eventually, but at the moment we're still working on manufacturing. One of our suppliers is having some issues, and we're working with them to resolve it. We'll be sending an update email through our mailing list once we have it resolved and have updated shipping times.

    I might consider buying one if these if I could see it in action first.

    @UpToke you will get a lot of marketing value for your buck if you host a testing session for us.

    I'm not famous here, but there are a lot of bay area FCers who will be up to checking you out, and we'll post text and video reviews.

    We'll bring plenty of bud!

    I have been dying for a vaporizer like this! I've always wanted a portable where I could just inhale and get amazing vapor and clouds! If this vaporizer can do that, I will buy it immediately. Please provide demo video, and pictures of being in use. You have a lot eager folks here waiting :) $300 is very steep, but possibly worth it if this thing does everything it says.

    Just a heads up there are portables on the forum that deliver clouds just by inhaling... No need To wait for this if you don't want to, been a good while since there's been any updates on this

    I meant especially because of the super-short warmup time, and no button to push. What other vapes offer this?

    Just checked their site for first time in long time.. Says "Available Now" but also says "Delivery Six to Eight weeks". I am guessing neither is correct.

    Hope I didn't get anyone's hopes up with a post but have to ask, what's going on with this vape? Seems like they had lots of momentum based on media articles I read. Has anyone preordered or been offered to be a tester? As an elevape owner I like the draw on aspect and the grinder tip would solve the stirring issue.

    "hanks for reaching out. We're in manufacturing and not currently ready to send out review samples, but we're happy to connect with you when we are." that's what they've told me in january

    Hey everyone,

    I rarely write reviews but this experience actually made me want to go through the hoops of getting an account on this forum to let as many people know as I can about the shitty experience I've had so far with this company.

    Here is the skinny:

    I pre-ordered the Spyre from Uptoke on April 14, 2015. I fully realized they're not out in full production mode so I expected there would be some wait. At some point after my order was placed I wanted to know the time frame when I could expect the product, so I emailed them.

    Their response was: " You should be expecting yours around late Q2, i.e. the end of June. The end of June passed, July rolled around, not as much as even a note from them.

    I e-mailed Uptoke again asking what's up with my order and when I can expect the product. NOTHING. No response.

    At this point I've had enough and just wanted to get a refund. Emailed them again. As expected there was no response. Emailed them again and again, even tried different addresses. Still nothing. That's when I just decided to do a charge-back through my card. And just to not be an asshole about it I let the Uptoke know about it in advance.

    As soon as they got the message about the charge-back they nonchalantly responded and asked for my cc number as they claimed they don't store in their system for, you know, my privacy, so they could issue the refund.

    I decided to play along and just went ahead and sent it over. Again, not surprisingly there was no further action on their part. No confirmation of anything. No refund. Not even a fucking reply.

    Fuck this company and their incompetent ass owners!

    If their product is even a slight reflection of their customer service they're in big trouble. The competition will eat them faster than a great white a wounded seal.

    I did too about a year ago when the site had an estimate ship date of 6-8 week's i think it was, Then i noticed that it didn't change and the company was having issues. I figured i just would not check on this one for a while now this. I think i'm going to need to see some great user reviews when this comes out to have interest in this one again.
