    Hey, just got my Extreme Q the other day after about a year plus with the MFLB. Has anybody tried inserting the whip into a homemade bottle bong with a little carb on the side. This worked wonders with the MFLB and the Q has a fan so maybe it would be better.

    Bob, first of all welcome to the forum! Mon!

    The Q will work fine with a homemade bong, but the fan won't do shit for you with water. There is no real need for the fan anyways though when you're using water IMO.

    :peace:

    Ok thanks mon! l will try the bong when i get to use the Q. Do you find the bong to be a more effective way of medicating than the whip/bags?

    iv'e been wondering how i could make a smaller elbow bowl. after seeing the underdog bowl i realized i could just use the silicone tubing from the whip and cut off ~1/4 inch and stick it in the elbow screen to make a more narrow bowl... there's more drag though... here's a picture

    EDIT: its not as dense as a normal elbow hits can get, but its a nice change to be able to use little bits as i want out of the EQ.. the hits are more like the ones a portable gives. helps conserve, and i can use that lately.

    AFTER MESSING W/ IT MORE I DON'T CARE FOR IT.

    Are people still buying and using the aquavape? I'm thinking about getting one now that I've fully realized the true power of the whip/elbow packs! Im so amazed at how much I can get out of so little herb.

    Oldie, although i like how it hits, i noticed more congestion from the warm water bonging.. so i'm officially done w/ it ha.. liked it for about a week though... allergies might have played a little part in it too.

    more and more lately, i'm really liking how a full cyclone hits.. more efficient, easier to stir, holds more, responds better to temp, + benefit of elbow pack hit if you want to rip it harder... it's nice being able to get any kind of rip i want... light or heavy all in one very efficient bowl that lasts a while... i like to take the cyclone/whip off, clear whip, clear elbow into cyclone, remove whip, and stir... just a new routine to get used to, i feel it's totally worth the small amount of extra effort and time.. when i have things to do i can start at ~170c - ~195c for a less sedating high, and if not i can take it up to ~230c.. its nice chillin out w/ a full cyclone:ko:

    *edit*sorry if this counts as a double post?

    It's okay to post back-to-back if the Edit window has closed, which it had in this case.

    Hi everyone, just joined the forum after having spent some time browsing.

    Pretty certain I'm going to be purchasing an Extreme Q soon. My bong broke so I was thinking time for an upgrade!

    I was just wondering though how suitable is this vape for hash? I tend to prefer hash over bud. Is it possible to vape hash on its own (i.e. not sprinkled on bud) in this vape? I've heard that you have to be careful that nothing melts and drips down onto the heating element.

    Also I think I'd like to replace my bong - something I can use on its own but also rigged up to the EQ for a cooler (and milkier?) hit. I was going to go for something with some diffuser/percolating action, like for example

    http://www.grasscity.com/uk_en/smok...g-with-clipper-lighter-blue.html#.UPIDWG802Sr

    or

    http://www.grasscity.com/uk_en/smok...-glass-bong-8-arm-tree-perc.html#.UPIDDG802Sq

    Would these work well in combination with the EQ?

    I'm sure I'll probably think of more questions soon enough :)

    ^^ It probably depends on the hash.....
    I do full melt all the time in my EQ, but I sandwich it in between some bud.
    I don't think straight full melt would work. You might get a brief hit before the hash melted all over the screen and clogged it, but then you'd be in for some major cleaning :( If the hash were more sandy, you might be able to get away with it.

    Yeah likely to be something a bit more sandy like regular Moroccan or Lebanese, for example.

    Just tried packing in about .4 into the bowl and then putting a drop of oil on the top, it is working like a charm!

    I like to sandwich just a bit between some herb in the elbow. It gives off some insanely milky, strong hits. Mmmmmmm.

    How easy or hard is EQ to clean compared to some of the other vaporizers you guys have used?

    I only ever need to clean the elbows and screens. The unit it's self never gets dirty one bit BUT I only do elbow packs. I'm sure if your packing the bowl a lot then you would need to clean the bowl now and then. Once you move past the stock pvc whips and on to the silicone it's very easy to reach all that good so very good reclaim. Yeah I would say it's very easy compared to my two other vaporizers.

    ^^^ Not really... I mean I just use my fingers and my breath to clean the bowl...I usually finish (after stirring) with the normal mode...I do elbow packing but when it reaches the end, I crush it a bit and put it back in the bowl itself to get few more decent hits :)

    The Extreme Q is a Hash monster and beats the Volcano and Herbalaire in that department, if you ask me. Purchase a volcano liquid pad set and cut one up in approximately thirds. Form that third into a pad that fits into the Q's cyclone bowl you will have an amazing vaporizer for oils and waxes which is capable of much higher heat than the Volcano or HA. Coldwater or kif will work on a single, conventional screen or on a stack of screens if they are particularly gooey - or they can go on the liquid pad, too.

    Great to hear. I will definitely try out your suggestion of using the volcano liquid pads. Just ordered my EQ, should be arriving tomorrow! :party:
