    I got my Lotus for a few months now.I had a trouble at first getting the technique but then everything came together.I preferred the j hook with wpa option,so that I could have visual feedback and avoid combusting,which was an issue in my first runs with the aluminum body.

    After getting the grip of it,I started using the aluminum body exclusively and I gotta say that in the last month and a half it is my main driver ,setting my beloved sticky brick og aside for a while...

    I 'd like to ask @Max Jitter if the new caps will be available at one of your vendors.

    Cheers! :wave:

    Just keeping that question to Max alive.....

    Can someone tell me the length of both the short and long aluminum stems?

    And I agree... the visual feedback with the J-hook is very nice. I can control the clouds better when I can see them. But I really like using the stem too. :)

    We just rolled out the new cap (Saucer, model 247). It costs $8 more than the standard hi temp cap. Right now it is available only on our website www.lotusvaporizer.com It will be available shortly at https://vgoodiez.com/

    Thank you! If anybody’s used both, please let us know your experience with them. Is it any harder to get a smooth vape with the shorter stem? ;)

    The lotus takes the cake for flavor. Damn. Love this thing! One of my only butane devices but the vapor quality and speed is superior. FF2 is like it but overpriced IMO. The layers of the different metals is clever, to almost filter and heat at the same time. Lotus heater? lol

    I have both long and short stems. I use a short stem for hiking/trailrunning and generally out and about when the size and weight are an advantage. At home I use long stems. I do not notice a difference in vape quality or temperature but find the longer stems are more comfortable and relaxing to use due to the increased distance and better angle between the eyes and hotplate/flame but I am old and my eyes have to work a bit harder focusing close up.

    That saucer cap looks sexy.

    That’s just what I was looking for. I hadn’t thought about the shorter one being a little less comfortable but now I can see how that might be true. But it’s good to know the vape is basically the same with the short and longer stem. Thanks for your thoughts! :)

    You can see my picture on the previous page of both.....I got mine with no wood finish and I put my own on it. Max was nice enough to work with me and I might be one of the first few to get the new one.

    Sorry, I do not use the stock stems or the adapter. I made my own parts as I need more glass in the vapor path.

    Here is how I use mine. I use a Arizer wpa adapter for the bowl. I had to take off the metal collar on the bottom of the wood disk to do this. So in reality, the only part I use from Lotus is the entire cap system and the cool Jabon lighter they well for it.

    Above is the original Lotus wood disk.

    I physically can not come around....my irritation to metal in the oven/vapor path is real sadly....

    But I have many great vapes to use now.....so no hate at all on metal! :tup:

    Yes it does. I had no idea I needed another Lotus...

    I really like this idea. I have singed my fingers more than once...

    What would be the best place to order from when from the Netherlands?
    I see verdampftnochmal.de has the Lotus but would prefer the new Saucer cap if available.

    Bumping this up for @Dio question above to hopefully get an answer from the more knowledgable than myself.

    Did I forget to say I love my lil’ Lotus! And it loves my Fear & Loathing. :)

    I've gotta say I am loving the new Saucer Cap. The ONLY objection I had to using the Lotus has been needing to be a little careful to not singe my fingers due to the heating plate being so close to the edge of the cap. That is now 100% resolved with the new cap and I am using my Lotus a lot more now. Outstanding upgrade, Max!!! Thank you. :cool:
