    Oh, I'm glad they made it over! Thank you for your feedback. I love crowdsourcing ideas for improvement.


    @subway13029 I would but I don't want to monkey around with @VAPEHUNTER's SV. I don't want to break it!!

    yeah, they made it over no problem, thanks again :tup:

    ...they did however go missing in the local post office for 24hrs... when I first took the card to collect them yesterday they were nowhere to be found :mad:

    Fortunately that had turned up again by today :party:

    ok feedback time...

    My bubbler and J-hook are both 18mm, so have been using my gong with a 14mm -18mm adapter. Makes it a little sturdier to stand up too :tup:

    [​IMG]

    The silicone tube section is for two reasons... firstly it gives you a cool place to hold when you're handling the hot gong
    It also stops the tube sliding into the supreme too far and leaves that small gap between the top of the gong and the heat exchanger plates (for air flow)...

    ...now as it happens, that point is just where the indent is pushed into the glass tube to stop the load falling down. Now as it also happens, the tube won't actually push any further past that point into the supreme, due to some deformation or (more likely) slight widening of the tube at that point due to the pressure pushing the indent...

    Now imo this is not an issue at all, but needs to be built into the overall plan :science:
    In my (humble :D) opinion, you should aim for the indent to be pushed into the tube as close to the formed joint as possible, then go for appx 47mm of straight tube after that.
    This would make the gong more compact, and you could always add a handle/dots to stop it rolling at the same point as the indent, which won't add any real length overall :tup:

    Thank you so much for your user experience review and mods. And the photo really helps.

    @VAPEHUNTER is sending the S3 up my way again with the thermometer working so now I will be able to test new modifications.

    I do have to apologize that I'm loving time off the grid way too much and haven't been home. I do plan on hopping back on this and the VC bodies soon. The heat in Seattle is just off the charts so I've been slacking going into an extra hot studio.

    I hope summer I going well for you all!

    Hey all. I'm still here. Just going through a rough time in my life. I'll bounce back soon enough.

    Yeah, He got to try it. I changed the battery and sent it back to him so he can try it. I think he had a good couple of weeks with it. And being a true gentleman he is he returned it when he said he would.
    :peace:

    Sadly, no. @PlanetVape would be interested in making them for us (and would do a killer job) but require a sv3 to be able to make them. Sv3 is my daily driver with no backups, otherwise i'd take one for the team, and if I get another suitable vape I still will. Some sort of concentrate adapter/plug/stem would be my wet dream.... vapolution has them.

    They are in Toronto, Ontario Canada.

    Have you tried simply using a glass reducer directly on to the silicone of the sv3? I personally don't use any grommets/seals, just use the sv3 direct to 14mm glass.

    I didnt played around with the supreme enough..
    however, from the two times I used it I went with a 18mm-14mm and the silicone-grommets.
    works.

    I am still learning how to use it tough.

    ...REALLY?!?!? how the hell do you remove the stem/bowl? i need the grommet for something to grab onto, plus it's a little bit of isolation from the heat... a little... but i can still remove it after a hit (without burning myself :lol:)


    ... never tried with nothing, i assume your using grips or waiting until cool?

    @just_the_flu I just use a tiny piece of cotton cloth to remove the hot stem (cut from sweat pants so it's "thick").

    The sv3 is easy to remove from the gong just by "wiggling". But you can really get it on there so it doesn't budge when removing the sv3/ clearing. I sometimes use a claisen adapter too.

    In fact I use the 14mm reducer all the time, directly on the silicon-tubing of the dv3

    @biohacker

    What is your prefrrred temp for 0.1-0.05 bowls?
    and: which is the best heating angle for the torch (45 degree?). There has to be some physician with science applied on it ;)

    Same as my preferred temp for any size bowls (up to .15g) approximately 170-180c. Sometimes i'll go up to 185c but do not like to go over. From time to time i'll do 160-170 flavour sessions.

    IMO the torch matters more than the angle of heating. Those physics are way over my head! :lol:

    So happy you like your sv3....it's the best flower vape that i've ever owned! I use it for anything that doesn't melt! ;)

    I guess I’m somewhat well prepared with a BIG torch.
    Thanks for the feedback!
    I still have to figure out how to properly use it with glass
    Do you use a a WT dry or with water in it?

    Go BIG or go home! I only use big torches! :brow:

    Always happy to help!

    I only use a water tool with water, as I don't like dry vapour. What are you having difficulty with?

    This is how i use mine with water, just a 18 to 14 mm reducer, since my water tool is 18mm and the S3 silicone fits perfectly into a 14mm reducer.
    Without water is the same, except no water! LOL!
