    Yea your guidance has been spot on @BLAZING OG . I've been able to learn a lot about this stuff very quickly because of contributions like yours, Dreamerr, Stickstone, MedicalMark, and t-dub, and I am really sorry if I missed anyone who has contributed in these VB threads. Google lead me here because I had questions about this crazy thing I bought at my smoke shop. Guess while I'm in shout out mode I have to kick one out to all the guys at VB putting this thing together and the mad man who actually mailed me one for free. (Holy Crap!!) I hope I have done your work a service. I don't know how much longer I'll be able to post because I just have a lot going. I love it here and will always lurk and post but I just have too many balls in the air to focus much more energy on the baker. one more thing i gotta ask though is how much extra strain would it put on the device to "color outside the lines" I want to be able to pack this thing outside the bullet for an enhanced conduction/convection experience. If I keep it clean how much sooner will this thing shit out?

    Edit: Maybe something like a washer but i wouldnt feel safe using just any washer from the hardware store

    I have used this thing the last two nights as a nightcap and love how it gets me sleepy!

    The first night I put a good amount of herb in there...about two-thirds packed and topped it off with a spacer. I got good, thick hits that felt great. Did that session on 390. I followed that up tonight with the same load revaped at 445 and got a couple more decent hits. I then went to one of my soaked hemp filters and hit that forever.

    I'm starting to get a regular rotation of vapes throughout the day to keep my system off balance as far as tolerance and this one definitely has a place in that rotation!

    @stickstones what are you using for a spacer? I have been using a top elb screen and found it works nicely. Fits the bullet nicely. And it helps to keep herbs in place while keeping the screen on the pong clean.

    I did that before and forgot about it...will have to get back to that method. I was using hemp fiber, but with this vape it ends up being a throw away spacer. I will give the screen another go next time...thanks for the reminder!

    It seems the Baker is working very good..... but, like all the VaporBlunt products the design is...how to tell that....really......special????!!!!??!

    I'm thinking your designer got a job in Startrek movies before:lol:

    But this design is apprecied by lot of people, at least in the usa cause here, in Europe, nobody is selling VB products...

    Go back to the Baker itself, the better of this vape is the high t° hability to handle concentrates , on the vid that i saw it looks like a classic nail and I like that (so it's a e-nail, isn't it?) but TRVB spoke about update about concentrates tools (he told that it was a pain in the ass to use....) any updates?

    @PPN This is the last update we have had. TRVB is trying to find new tubing for the whip, and is also reworking the glass dome for better/easier use. We will know more after he sorts this out . Hope this helps. :tup:

    This looks like it will be an awesome plug in vaporizer.

    I know that TRVB responds to this thread. I haven't seen him on Pinnacle Pro thread in a while. There are a lot of unhappy folks. They aren't getting their emails responded to, they are concerned about the pong and mouth piece deterioration on their units. There has been no response since TRVB said he would look into the battery issues folks are having. It seems like the higher temps are ruining the mouthpieces and the pongs.

    Im sure hes extremely busy while trying to manage an already released product and release a new product all together. Knowing how he has responded and taken care of customers in the past Im sure once everything settles down at the vaporblunt labs hell back to help out everyone that is having problems.

    Hi all,

    Would anyone be able to please confirm if the bullets in the Baker are the same size as those in the Pinnacle Pro? It'd be really awesome if they were, (sorry if I've missed it if this has already been previously discussed).

    Thanks!

    Hell yea. I was just about to ask for an update as I've got my funds ready to send the minute this gets released. Do you have any type of ballpark date vape blunt

    like a tank, No hiccups here.
    Things have been crazy for me, but I hope to crank out some more vids. I have been using the dabbs feature a lot, herbs are coming. :-)

    @TherealVaporblunt, running strong. Zero problems. In fact I'm milking it right now. The only thing that broke to date was the pong. Which happend during the fall. But, I found one. I am using one from/for The Vapor Blunt 2.0 :tup:

    Well unfortunately for yall I was banned for not posting a name/date pic with one of my items in the classifieds. Fortunately for me, I wasent able to tell everyone here that there was a baker up on ebay that a guy had. I won it for 140 shipped because I was the only one that bid (I figured no one knew what it was so they werent buying)! I figure for that price even if its a tester unit it will still be worth it! Ill let everyone know my impressions when it gets here (scheduled for monday)

    just finished catching up on the old posts. so it doesn't mention whether the initial release will be limited to FC or internet sales or whether they should be available at the headshops that carry vaporblunt products?

    oh I do the same with every vaporizer stickstones! Gotta make sure to do a little research but its been quite some time since an update from anyone or another video was posted. Just seeing if anything new has been discovered!

    Edited for the my random ramblings about this vape. First impressions are very nice, Its been a while since Ive been this under the influence by a vape so Im going to have repost my experience with it a little later.

    Well that was the shortest lifetime to a vape that Ive ever owned lol. I cant complain because of the price but Im pretty disappointed. I got to use it for one session which was 3 bullets worth and it treated me pretty damn good but after the 3rd bullet it produced what I would assume to be an error code "ER 3" so I turned it off. Now when I turn it on the temp gauge starts around 500-700 and just randomly jumps around and when I set an actual temp after about 5 min it gives me another error code, "ER 4". No amount of tinkering will get it to turn on regularly unfortunately.

    I saw this as a test run for another pinnacle product and even though I was impressed I dont see myself buying the retail unit unless major changes are made. After everything is said and done I just was not a fan of the plastic construction at all. The plastic threads had me worried from the start that eventually it would become a problem down the road. Another thing was the degree of the joint, Im not sure if its just the tester units but the joint is not 90 degrees on mine so when you have a pinnacle water tower hooked up to it the thing is extremely crooked. The plastic pong was constantly getting stuck in the water tower joint as well when I would try to clear it so when I would wiggle around it would unscrew the pong a little. I wasent able to try the dabs feature but it looked like it could be a lot of fun with carbing it. This vaporizer is very light and small for a desktop and I would say that could be a good or bad thing. I have yet to drop any of my vapes but if this one did I could easily see that being a killer blow. It has about the same air flow as a cloud does but in my experience the difference with the Baker is that the USER has to limit the airflow to get good cloud production. If I really ripped into it like I would with my cloud the vapor production would go down drastically. I only cranked it up for 440 but I would say the SOLO at level 7 could match the clouds I was getting with the baker at that temp. The E-nano still has it beat though in terms of cloud production. This vape definitely has a very STONEY high to it, much different from my other vapes. Really deep and heavy in the head and body, and I tried 3 different strains ranging from 385 to 440

    Please keep in mind that my baker was a tester unit from someone on ebay, so who knows what he could have done with it before it got to me for it to mess up like that. Im not biased in any way and tell it like I see it with no sugar coating so if any of the other testers disagree with what Ive wrote Id like to hear why and see your side of it. Vaporblunt has said that he is making revisions to the actual production model so Im interested to see what he changes because Id love to have another desktop beside my e-nano. Heres to hoping that everything works out great and I end up buying this product!

    hah well I bought it on ebay for 130 shipped so I cant exactly complain...if I would have spent 250+tax and shipping I would have been furious. But then again if it was a production model bought directly from vapor blunt Id expect a replacement, but its not haha. Even if the model had continued to work I dont think I will be buying the production model. Im just not a fan of the plastic or the fact that it uses plastic threading, I dont know why but the idea of it bothers me quite a bit.

    Thats not to say the baker is a bad vaporizer because its not. Its a great vape with super thorough and even extraction. Mine did not provide me with clouds like my e-nano but for some reason the rips makes you cough a lung out, which I liked because it reminded me of back in the days when I would take a snap and start sweating I was coughing so hard. All in all Id regard it as a pinnacle pro modified to be a desktop with more of an adjustable temp range and more power in the heater.
