    HOLY FUCK GUYS IT'S HERE I HAVE IT! (Holiday backer!) I'll be taking pics and posting more in a bit! Let me know what you guys wanna know! I'm simultaneously ecstatic and fucking smacked, so bear with me.

    GRASSHOPPER FUCK YEAH!

    Edit: I'm a holiday backer who got his early (unfortunately they only selected a few early ones, and everyone else can expect theirs to ship in backer/preorder order. But, on the upside other backers should be seeing their units this month.

    After backing this in November of 2013 I'm pretty damn happy. Grasshopper delivers, and exceeds my expectations.

    Has it completed your life? haha Edit: Real question, did you get a session extender, and if so, did you pay for it? Just curious

    Some more pics. http://imgur.com/a/nZaSR This feels incredibly well-built and solid (I got the SS model for now). The bowl has a smaller diameter but greater width than most vapes I've used, which would make sense in a true convection vape. I'll be reporting back with more later. BEEN WAITING FOR THIS MOMENT SINCE 2013

    Once you've had more time with it could you comment on taste and vapor quality. I know what @BuzzDanklin thinks but I feel this part is quite subjective and thus I want as many opinions on the topic as possible.

    @midgetsanchez , how harsh is that tiny vapor path? Any vapes you can compare it to?

    Oh, and what is the moon phase and local humidity? What strain? What are you wearing right now? Were you sitting, standing, crouching or lying down? Have you ever seen a grown man in his underwear?

    I am noticing that more grasshoppers are making their way out into the world and into the hands of users.

    Edit - page 1 new thread, so now it's really official, no more hiding. :ninja:

    This is now the official thread. The nonsense of the candidate thread will not be tolerated. Please limit shipping discussions to the Grasshopper Shipping Poll thread. This means (but is not limited to) queue order, shipping dates, order dates, or tracking info. Thanks for your cooperation.

    Agree. I know I've been a pretty harsh critic, but it's nice to see these Hoppers finally making it out into the world. Anxiously waiting on future reviews.

    Something that is bothering me is how fragile the insulation is. I understand it's sandwiched between metals but I can't help but wonder if it could break when dropped. For instance if the top is off and you drop it on the exposed end of the chamber. Obviously this is pure speculation. I have no idea what the insulation is like, but I'd like to know if this sort of thing is covered under the lifetime warranty? I hope it's not an issue and that I don't have a crystal ball of doom.

    So first impressions:

    EXCEPTIONAL build quality. Even better than my Storz & Bickel products...this just feels remarkably solid and well-built. I've owned lots of portables (MFLB, Thermovape T1, PAX, Crafty to name a few) but this just blows the rest out of the water. I have the stainless model, it's heavy in a good way.

    It's shorter than I thought; it's actually shorter than most of my actual (writing) pens.

    It heats up absurdly fast and the temp dial is amazing!

    Some criticisms:

    The unit, especially the mouthpiece gets very hot with extended use....I think the best technique to use this would be to pulse the switch off/on during a session to allow it to cool. Since it's actually convection the herbs stop cooking when it shuts off if you don't draw. The silicon mouthpiece is a definite must, otherwise it's uncomfortable to use when it gets this hot. THAT SAID, it does seem to cool off very quickly. Again, I only have the stainless model (perhaps I should have gone Ti...)

    I'm very, very happy though overall.

    Faint glimmers of hope...I love my Crafty. The vapor can't be as cool...or can it???
