    Just got my FF2 last night. No problems getting nice hits on medium straight out of the gate, but I think it's due to my experience with the SSV which has a similar technique.

    Couple of questions though:

    1. Is there a good way to use less material, and not pack the bowl to full? I think I saw someone said they put a little herb down and then the concentrate pad on top. Does this help?

    2. Is there a way to avoid stirring, say by tamping down a half bowl and then just shaking the unit? I guess stirring isn't a huge deal, but it sort of ruins the "seamless" experience in my view.

    3. Are most people starting on medium-low and then working their way up the temps? Med-Low, Med, Med-High, High? If so, how many solid hits per full bowl would you say you get?

    Thanks!

    I purchased some ceramic screens from Vaporbrothers (sku 8014), put in a smaller amount of material and put the screen on top. Don't have to stir nearly as often or at all this way, and you use less material.

    I start on medium low and work my way up. With the ceramic screen, I'd say I get 6-ish hits. More without the screen and bowl full.

    Hey all, I've had my FF2 for about a year now and I noticed yesterday that one of my batteries now has noticeably diminished capacity.

    By lucky coincidence the store is having a 2 for the price of 1 battery sale which came out to about $40 with shipping and tax. Now might be a good time for fellow early adopters to restock. Cheers.

    It's a pretty effective way to use less material. I do it often....it also adds a little heat to the bowl, so keep that in mind. (I find it pretty helpful, actually.)

    What is the best concentrates to use in the Firefly2? Me and a buddy are heading to Denver in a few weeks for the first time and I'd appreciate some suggestions. I've only used wax or shatter one time while I was in Portland. It was pretty easy, except I think I put to much in at one time. It was a little difficult to clean the holes in the plate even after using the pads.

    Also, any suggestions as to the best brands to use, best shops to visit downtown? I'm staying at the Residense Inn on Champa St, hoping that their not using sniffers on our room after we leave. Neither of us use combust, and my buddy only uses a oil pen.

    I'm going to post this in the ask question section too, hope that's within the guidelines of the site.

    I've never tried using runny stuff that comes in a syringe in mine but get great results with all the other types. Don't get greedy and overload, you can always add more as you need.

    In Denver I like a few choices. Good Chemistry on colfax is a must stop for me. Mostly for herb but they have well priced concentrates too. I got some Kong pho that was really nice there and they had Pink Kush terp jelly. Very nice, wish I had more.

    Botanico has good stuff and they have good deals if you go at the right time. Check on it but I believe the sale prices were best right when they open. Native Roots has a decent selection as well and if you sign up with them online you get a nice discount code.

    Check out L'Eagle as well. Their herbage is mucho primo if a bit pricey. I got some Strawberry Cough shatter from them last time that rocked. If you go, buy something small from them once and they will give out a 10% discount coupon you can use the next visit if you decide to go big on the second visit.

    Green Dragon is cheap as hell, sometimes good. Can always decarb it and make edibles from it if you don't like it. Check out the Westword free magazine for ads and such.

    Hi there!

    1. Never tried that but you can just take a hit or two and just set it down for a while. No harm done. Just make sure to give the bowl a quick clean once you're done.

    2. Get used to stirring after EACH hit for the absolute best results. Medium/course grind or hand tear your material.

    3. This is how I use mine (with excellent quality)...

    1. Med-low +2 (Great flavor)
    2. Med-low +5 (She's warming up)
    3. Med-low +8 (Amazing hit)
    4. Med-low +11 (milky)
    5. Medium +5
    6. Medium +8
    7. Medium +11
    8. High even to finish

    Enjoy!

    Thanks for you post! So you skip Medium-high entirely? I have been getting solid hits on low and medium-low and I m happy about that.

    I had read that batteries can die quickly, but I get through about two bowls before it's kicked. Is that normal? It's brand new!

    Having a rare free morning in the mancave. Sipping on a Lagunitas "Where's Waldo" at 11.9%, and sipping Colorado concentrate from my FF2. Doesn't get much better........but I have the Cocobolo UD warming up if reinforcements are needed:evil::science::worms::leaf::lol:

    Yep. I skip Medium-high. Sadly, that is the average battery life at 5 months for me. Sometimes 3 bowls. It's worth mentioning that I draw the full 30 seconds the green light is on, every pull.

    Will the jet black be more expensive?

    Holy shit, so stoned right now......when you get this vape right, it just kills! Started out with some crumble, then switched to flower on high. Added a growler of Epic "Brainless on Cherries" and you know the result..........

    Another crazy flavor day with this vape! Anybody who lives in a legal place with good concentrates should definitely try one of these. Hitting some Colorado crumble (78%) and a Denver cousin.....A Great Divide "Nadia Kali" Saison brewed with Hibiscus, Ginger and Lemon. Yum on both accounts!

    Giotto's Rocket Air blower worked great. Blasting those holes right after the ISO scrub/concentrate level heating, and it seems to be dramatically helping

    What's up fellow vapors! I've had my airizer air for almost two years now And am kind of thinking about the firefly 2 because of my vaping style.

    Usually I only take a couple hits then I'm good. So I really like that I don't have to worry about wasting material when I'm not with friends. However I love to be active so I'm wondering how the vape holds up. Any cases of the glass breaking?

    Do you think the firefly 2 is worth the money? Is there any drawbacks I should be aware of?

    Thanks
