    I restrained. Couldn’t figure out why you were giving away stuff, fer free. :o

    There were other bits you were giving away for free, @OF course! :nod: Over the years.

    Happy Holidays! Long time we haven’t crossed, vapes!

    I have been using my Launch Box the last two days after a long time and I am realising again how great it is.

    The ritual connected to it comes close to my old rolling habits. It has something relaxing ... a little shake after the toke, aligning the load in the trench, getting ready for the next toke ... all while watching something nice on TV or hearing some music.

    I always liked the taste of the Launch Box and I still do ... the nice woody flavour. What took me by surprise was how hard it hits, I completly forgot about that. Just some tokes and I am fine, while the rest of the trench waits for me until I am in the mood for it.

    The instant heating and the highly available and changeable (:)) batteries are qualities that even most recent vapes do not support and it is brought to reality in this little device in such a simple, effective and beautifully charming way.

    Well, as one can guess I just used the little Box and am in awe. :D

    That look's to be a well made grinder!

    Mine provides a course grind. (flavor chaser most of the time)

    I need a FINE GRINDER for certain vaporizer's.

    Thank You @OF next year for sure.

    GOOD INFORMATION!

    While the topic went to grinders ... does anyone own a NewVape Fine Grinder and can advice if the grind is comparable to the MFLB Fine Grinder?

    I am eyeballing the NewVape although I am happy with my SCS Medium 3 Piece.

    Nice hint with Chewie2. I have already seen it in its thread and since I got my MFLB out again it might be an interesting option as well.

    Reading your post and responding brought me back together with my box.
    I guess it slipped through the cracks with all of the vapes popping up, and having multiple tools....
    I have been using the MFLB exclusively since Lunchtime.
    It is always a blessing to come back to the box!
    the direct vapor path is super short.... and medicates in a whole unique way.
    Every delivery system has it's unique signature, and the MFLB always leaves me with that special "twinkle".

    And not just any old pillar, either. We're talkin' about "the sage of the High Desert" here, right?

    Accept no substitutes, not that there really are any.

    Lesser Forums don't have a Vitolo of their own.....need I say more?

    Thanks for the love all.
    I do not.
    The aftermath of thinking I would never be re-united with my tools left me sharing most remnants that were not taken.
    I prefer using the box naked, but I over time found that this brings the eventual "goo" up front sooner.
    I have one glass stem, and one acrylic stem.
    I prefer the original acrylic stem for many reasons.
    I do use the box Native at times too.
    I appreciate you too @OF :nod:

    Well i duh mine out and gotta say those first hits taste incredible. After that we all know it's down hill but those first 1 or two hits are delicious. I also got very overmedicated with totally surprised me as I'd been vaping all day and didn't expect the change in signature to hit me that hard. It's still the only battery powered portable I've cared for. If only you could clean the bastard thing a bit better. Oh well nothing to report just showing that the little box still sees love over here

    I recently picked up a UFO and if I had to sum up the experience in a couple of words it’d be: Fun, Unique, and annoying. I’m planning to make a video review of it soon but for now here’s a video on its performance!

    Also, I’m itching my hand because while I was positioning my camera I didn’t realize that ants were beginning to crawl on me. RIP.

    On Christmas Eve I was finished with all the morning chores and had a few hours before having to do the evening obligations and decided to sit down in back with the MFLB and some tea.

    I was in no rush and had a few batteries so I decided to take my time.

    What a wonderful time. The vape still works great and it really squeezes out the goodies of what is put inside. I didn't get huge clouds; just a pleasant passing of time.

    I can fill an IQ and be done in less than 10. This took much longer. But, if I have the time, I'll go there again with the little box as the journey is so much better.

    Great story! But you left out an important detail: What tea?

    Earl Gray is the call around here, sipping on a mug just now.

    Thanks for the post, and Happy New Year to all.

    I live near Little Saigon and Little Korea and have many choices. Some, quite spectacular. (With a price to match.) On the day in question, it was just a simple jasmine green tea.

    I love my MFLB. Lost all parts except for the main unit a few years ago. The new parts was not very expensive to exchange. This is also something of an advantage in favour of this beautiful vape :)

    Also, nice video. You've earned yourself another subscriber ☮

    Launch Box is super underrated! Hard to find a more stealthy instantaneous vape. With proper technique it hits HARD too

    Not sure it's underrated? Haven't it gotten the recognition it deserves? I've only heard good things about it ( well, from people who knows what they talk about ).

    Yeah much love for the ole LB as it stands the test of time! Six years in and my original still rocks my world.
    I mostly use it native style or with a shorty mouth piece while out in public. Very stealthy, very effective.

    In my experience, many people that are new to vaping usually avoid the launch box because of it's learning curve and look. Most gravitate towards vaporizers that look more "techy" like the Pax, CFX, Flowermate, etc. That's all i meant by underrated.

    The MFLB was the first vape I ever tried and while it is quite different from smoking it still got me hooked.
