    I too bought the MFLB as a stop gap measure, over a year later it's still the only vape I use, it's so good I bought a second one in case something happens to this. I considered buying a different type to try it, but why bother when I know this is so good?

    Pretty much my feelings exactly, though I've only had the box for about two months now. I've been looking around these parts pretty carefully at all the other options available. But, whenever I ground myself, quelling the VAS for bit and taking stock of things, I find myself not just consistently satisfied with her, but increasingly satisfied as I really settle into my technique. It really feels as if the more love you give the MFLB, the more it gives right back. It feels a bit like some kind of endless pocket you can always pull things out of... Bigger heart on the inside than it lets on from without. A bit otherworldly, really... (Anyone read House of Leaves? Heheh.)

    I thought I'd be able to wait a good long time before ever buying anything other than some glass to go with the box, until the folks at TET decided to unveil that beauty... Real hard to resist.


    I'm 2 months now essentially smoke free. From the day my package came in the mail from Magic-Flight, I haven't looked back. Well, there was one occasion where a still-combusting friend insisted I "give the bowl a try again", and I gave in just to see how it would compare after a few weeks of vaping... THE TASTE. Man. I had to throw a pinch in the mflb for palate cleansing purposes. Ha!

    Another round of applause for Magic-Flight and this forum. :peace:

    By the way, OF, I'm quite enjoying that "Case Logic" travel case as well as some 1 dram vials. The case is perfect, and tapping some flowers out of a vial and into the finishing grinder makes refilling on the go a snap. Really "a must" in my opinion for anyone looking for a nice travel setup.

    I kinda liken it to a musical instrument. The more ya practice the better the music. With practice and experimentation she can play all kinds of music!
    So you read House of Leaves too? That book was fucking amazing! It literally has you reading in totaly new ways. Not just the way it melds several great stories into one narrative,but it physically changes the way the book Is read. Best book I've read in ages,any fan of the written word should have it on their bookshelf.

    Absolutely, it's really an experience difficult to describe to anyone who hasn't read it yet. Sounds pretentious, but the depth Danielewski achieved is really breathtaking imo. Inspiring! Like the launch box, and this bud... :tup:

    Thanks. I agree. It's just a cheap little Chinese made case but it does a bang up job. Guys really need it (or at least could find it seriously handy) for a 'grab and go' rig. I find the pre measured loads in vials to be really handy as well, and not really all that hard to do in bulk.


    Great analogy, although I can't carry a tune to save my soul, it fits well IMO. And like musical instruments (and good tools generally) it becomes a natural extension of the owner. You end up knowing it so well you run it 'by feel' without paying attention. As it should be. Vapes should be a means, not an end.

    Since buying my first one I've bought several more (never had any problems), the prospect of being without overtakes reason and I get another one rather than a new vape to try. Not only that but I stand guilty of badgering several friends into owning one....good way to cut down on friends if you push the wrong stuff.

    Not to mention a guy really deserves an exotic wood one for being good, and we can't be troubling Santa with our personal problems......

    I have had my MFLB for over a year now and loved it as a portable vaporizer. I seem to be experiencing a decrease in performance; low amount of vapor, effects are more subtle. I have not changed quality or grind of herb, I clean and maintain buildup in the trench...etc. I have used this vaporizer as my primary device, I have never had any issues with it. I have recently been trying different brands and strengths of batteries to see if a certain brand does better but have not found anything.
    Has anyone experienced similar issues when using MFLB? It technically still works, probably can not send it in under its warranty unless it completely stops working.

    mod note: Merged with correct thread.

    It doesn't need to stop working completely. Try this test: How can I tell if my Box is running too cool? If your LB doesn't pass, then contact Magic-Flight and tell them.

    I gotta say I love how stealthy the LB can be, I went on a trip to NYC with non cannabis friendly family this past weekend and was able to vape without anyone having a clue, even in the back of the van on a few long drives at night.:ninja: It also got my low tolerance cousin completely baked off two hits, he likes it better than smoke. The LB is so handy and its stealth has been proven for me. And I honestly havn't even used it in a few months because I like bigger hits but for certain situations this thing is perfect.

    Keep a mentholyptus drop in there too. if stopped, eat one right away, and cough in the face of the cop.
    He will smell the "Halls Mentholyptus".. and think "germs' and will respectfully back away. Cops hate germs.

    Hey guys! Well, I had been putting off buying one of these for a long time now, I just couldn't see what all the big deal was. Little wood box, convection oven, possible combustion, none of it really sounded like a great vaporizer to me. And though it is the largest thread on this board, it just never was at the top of my purchase and collect list.

    I ordered one last week, and it just got here today. I threw the batteries into a fast charger I had laying around and let them charge till they were full. I packed about as much in the oven as I would my T1, just for a good comparison. Fine grind, about half full, I just dropped it in loose, and did not pack it.

    I think my experience with my T1 helped a lot with this unit, as micro hitting always get me huge blasts from my T1, so I used the same technique for my first oven full.

    I am so impressed with what this thing can do! My first hit was wispy, but very tasty. The second rip was thicker (I slowed my draw just a bit) and still very tasty. My third rip was a lung buser with a killer cloud! I probably got a total of 10 decent rips after a couple of dump n grinds, and am VERY nicely medicated.

    Sometimes I hate to jump on the band wagon, just because everyone else is. I have always liked to follow my own path, and often pay the price for my stubborness.

    In this case I am so stoked that I finally got past my anti-social behavior and jumped in with everyone else. I now understand why you would want to have a couple of these laying around, it is really a bad ass little unit, and really gets one medicated very well for a small amount of product being used.

    I can see this becoming a nice little addition to my pocket for outings, the stealthiness is really incredible. Sorry for being such a heel dragger, you guys were right, I was wrong. You all are very attractive, me not so much. But I am hoping that with my MFLB, my popularity will improve, and with that, my perceived looks.

    I think I hear it calling me again ...

    Not a bit of it. So now you are part of us. Cool. Glad you made the bus, sorry you couldn't join us sooner but these things happen when folks are being careful, a good thing. However, being behind the rest of the class, we've got some special homework for you to do........

    Hey, OF... Why don't you make him memorize Pakalolo's vaporpedia entry like you made me do? :shrug:

    I'm gonna be pissed if you give him the secret handshake too easily...

    That's easy, 'cuz I like him better, of course. Then again, I don't really know him, do I?

    The handshake is a whole other thing of course, we don't know if he's worthy, do we?

    Great to hear, thanks! That's the idea I think, or at least one of the important ones anyway. We're in it to help each other out when we can and get a few laughs in the process (or at least smiles).

    The fun bit is behind it all real people are giving up smoking.....how cool is that? Makes you live longer and smell better and lets you save a little weed money....or maybe just move up to that top tier?

    Sleep well, enjoy the box, keep the battery charged, the load fine and dry and keep shaking..... Catch you next time, you bring the punch lines?

    Mine recently came apart (the trench area came apart, like a tear / hole) they are sending me another 1 :)
    Problem i had was i seemed to just use it for after it had been through my PD for about
    8 hits 1st , either way i would get combustion slightly a bit now and then , since this isn't possible with other vaporizers i have it puts me off using this so much.

    Having said this i did seem to get everything right for a few nights , got some nice vapes before the hole was visible, without combustion, maybe just technique and keeping the batteries as fully charged as possible? am i right?

    I only had my first mflb less than 2 months and it went wrong through no fault of my own.

    Wait! What handshake?

    @$&#!

    Oh yeah... I use Burton "The Kit". Its like they say, if you have to ask, for what... then you don't need one. Holds the MFLB, 2 batteries, brush, stem and stash tin.

    Though, it is a bit more than $5.

    This is where I got mine. http://www.dogfunk.com/burton-the-kit

    This is how I usually pack, though I don't carry the shorty anymore.

    This is great! The new guys can't be you of course (or really 'just like him', try as they might) but at least they the can use the same gear..... And look all the better doing so.

    Glad to hear the 'BDV is packing a shortie' rumors are not true.......

    Shhh! Little known factoid. I have my own 5' of tubing. I cut my own stems. Any. Length. I. Choose. ;D

    So... you just never know. I might be carrying (a shortie). Though my wife insists, size doesn't matter.

    And you can take that one, to the bank.
