Where is this info posted? I could not find anything on their site/FB page/Twitter :/
Sorry, I forgot the code. I got it in an email from them.

Awesome, thanks! Gonna get a walnut box now
That is a SCREAMING deal!
That's a good deal too!!
Ok, I was mistaken. They jack up the price for the walnut. Here is what I got when I applied the discount:
Discount (VDAY20) -$29.80
Still a good deal for an exotic wood. I think Magic-Flight always intended to make exotic woods a part of their standard offering, so perhaps they've taken that step.
To all mflb+bong-owners, & those with knowledge on the subject.
I don't know if this is the right thread to ask this..
For about 1,5 years I've been enjoying my mflb, but now I want to take it to the next level.
Will order the PA, WPW/WPA as soon as possible (waiting for my prepaid credit card to arrive).
To complete the setup I'm looking for a suitable bong.
Now tbh, I dont know anything about bongs, other than what I've seen/read online.
Atm my bong of choice is the Ehle..here come the many questions I have;
what capacity suits the best? 100ml, 250ml, 500ml..?
14.5mm is the right size for the WPW/WPA right?
Follow-up questio on that size, I see some bongs with option for ice (which I think will be 'cool'), but I only see those with 18.8mm holes..If i pick up that addon adapter from Magic Flight, I figure it will fit, but what's the difference in operation between the 14.5mm & 18.8mm?
I don't need no carb hole right?
I see some with bend necks, I think this is comfort choice only?
I found a German website head-shop.de, where I think I'll order from, but they show Ehle bongs without any other parts, what else to I need for the setup to work/be complete for the mflb?
Thanks all, would very much appreciate any feedback!
A very good deal.
1. Doesn't matter what size IMO, you would still can milk the vapor, so personal preference?
2. It depends on what you want to attach your MFLB to? 14 or 18mm either.
3. I think 18.8 is better than 14 for bongs. It allows you a bit bigger hole to create a vacuum over the bowl.
5. Yup, personal preference again here.
6. You would need a downstem for your Ehle, along with the water pipe attachment and whip or stem to attach to the MFLB, then you're all good for some tasty and milky vapor hits!
edit: wrong word
Yes, both the WPA and WPW have a 14 mm male connector. Magic-Flight used to have a 14-18 mm adapter but I don't see it on their site now.
Others are better suited to answering the rest of your questions.
What exactly do you mean with your answer #3?
Thanks, I saw that adapter when i added the WPA to my cart, but I imagine less connections on the whole will be better? Lookswise, maybe vacuumwise too?
I actually just bought an Ehle bong off that website. I highly recommend them, service was super quick.
This is the one I bought for use with the WPA/WPW
You also need to get a downstem/diffuser (which if you go with a quality diffuser such as an EHLE will cost about as much as the bong). I do highly recommend you do though it hits super-good.
I personally don't think you'll find any differences between 14/18mm joints. The only real difference would be when you use bowls which you wouldn't be using when vape-bonging anyways.
As far as size goes I'm loving my 500ml. Anything bigger I'd be uncomfortable for fear of breaking it. Don't go smaller than the 250ml. If you like big rips 500ml is a good choice.
Thanks for your reply!
Any diffuser downstem is good?
I like your bong! But why did you buy one with a hole? Are you plugging that?
Nah, they surcharge you 20$ for cherry and 30$ for walnut.
I didn't catch that when I made my original post. I'm sorry if my post mislead anyone.
It is a good deal for an exotic to be sure. The code expires tomorrow.
What about the newer stronger batteries ?
Don't they come with the new exotic boxes ?
and does vapeworld also offered them with the new boxes ?
I'm pretty sure I got the new batteries with my new cherry exotic. They are very powerful.
It is my understanding that only Magic Flight is sending out those batteries.
I'm by no means a GonG expert but as far as I'm concerned I think the whole carb vs slide argument boils down to personal preference in the end. The kick-hole allows you to quickly clear the pipe of smoke without having to slide your bowl/WPA. Not having a kick hole means you'll need to lift the WPA/bowl off the downstem/diffuser to be able to efficiently clear the pipe. Or I guess if you really wanted to you could enjoy your non-carbhole setup by NOT lifting the bowl/WPA and taking slower denser hits that you could more dilute in time -- ie: using your bong just like you would a water filter - avoiding the big, lung filling rips associated with bong/tube setups.
It also kind of boils down to regional trends - it's my understanding that most GonG pieces in the US do not feature carb holes as bowls with slides are most common there. In the EU, the opposite is quite true and you'll be harder pressed to find bongs and GonG pieces without kick-holes. For instance they didn't even know bongs without carb-holes exist in my local headshop.
So to answer your question, yep I do plug the hole in my bong from time to time. I use one of the 14mm plugs they sell on the website to do it. I think you can find them under the bong-cleaning accessories section or you can just search for "plug". Fits my carb hole nicely and makes a completely air-tight seal. So I guess I got mine with a carb because I like options.
Now on to your more important question - no I don't believe any downstem is going to be "good". EHLE diffusing downstems are known to be of top-notch quality and right up there with roor in terms of quality/efficiency. My downstem was almost as expensive as my bong but it is also what makes my baby the beauty it is. If I use my bong with a regular non-diffusing downstem (which are like 3 euros each or something on that same website) or with one of my crappy weedstar diffusers it doesn't hit any better than my other cheap china glass GonGs.
I'm also really really impressed by how thick the EHLE diffuser is, especially when compared to the weedstar ones. I have never dropped it but it looks like it could definitely survive a lot.
That was... longer than expected. Sorry for the long-winded reply. Anyhow if you wanna read up more on EHLE diffusers, google "EHLE vs Roor diffuser" and click on the first result. Awesome review with tasty pics of what a quality diffusing downstem looks like.
PS . If you don't own one already be sure to grab a Power Adapter for the MFLB directly from Magic Flight. Not only does it completely change hit quality on the box itself but it's also a complete game-changer if you plan to use it with a WPA/WPW. I own a volcano digit and the MFLB + PA + WPA + EHLE 500ml has superseded it as my daily driver.
It’s 1:30 in the morning and I’m having an anxiety attack. It’s compounded by the fact that I have to get up for work in 3 ½ hours. My muscles are tight, I’m fidgety, my mind is racing and my breathing is hard. I need some relief and I reach for my Magic Flight Launch Box.
I take my medicine back to bed with me where I lie down in the dark. Within seconds, I’m “taking flight.” Within minutes, I’m starting to relax. I can’t believe that I’m vaporizing in bed and it’s all thanks to the Launch Box. Its versatility, convenience and incredible efficiency can be described as nothing short of awesome. I’m so grateful for my LB (and the incredible productsthat I put in it.)
Thank you, Magic Flight. I feel so much better.
Seems to me the only way to make sure you are receiving the new "premium" batteries is by buying the exotic lb directly From Magic Flight...
i asked the same question around christmas and magic flight told me, that all exotic woods boxes would come with the new batteries, whether you buy them from magic flight or elsewhere.
Don't apologize..I totally digg long responses, feel kind of honored!
So much useful information to digest, I'm waaay more certain of what to buy now, very much appreciate it ..!
I will definitely go with an icebong from the Ehle collection, not decided if it will be bent or straight..I like the straight look, but I imagine the bent one is suits a seated position best ..
Is this (click) the diffuser you have?
Or this one? I can't tell the difference, just that one says for pre-cooler .
About the PA, I expect my prepaid credit card to arrive today, so if all goes well, I'll be ordering the PA, the car adapter for use on the go and the WPA/WPW (I haven't decided if it will be the adapter or the whip, with the whip you wouldn't have to hold the LB to the bong, but I don't know if I will like the tube of non-toxic silicon gel to conduct the vapor . What are your toughts on that matter?).
To summarize what to buy;
Ehle IceBong 500ml 14.5mm with carbhole (I agree on having options)
Ehle Diffuser Adapter 14.5mm for 500ml bong
Carbhole plug (is this the right one?)
Add that to the LB + PA + WPA/WPW, and I'm good to go?
Thanks again, for your time, well written responses and advice !
with all the recent bong talk, is it actually possible to mock-up a hookah like device with the mflb and the PA? will it work, to have a glass recipient with two holes one for the wpa with the whip and one for the whip to draw? or would it be too much tubing for the vapor to pass through?
something like this
You're most welcome. Glad to see you're going with an EHLE - you won't be disappointed in the slightest I'm sure.
The diffuser I own is indeed the first one you linked (not sure about the pre-cooler one being any different either) and yes, that's the plug I'm using for my carbhole. You might find a carb-hole sized plug however I don't think they have it in stock on head-shop.de.
Add to that a LB + PA + WPA and you'll be golden indeed my friend!
As for the whole WPA vs WPW argument it has been discussed already in this thread (check a dozen pages back or so). What I can tell you is I own both the whip and the adapter and I've only used the whip a handful of times. I just find the adapter less messy to work with as I'm not a big fan of dongles). My friends however like the WPW so much more because they find having to hold the launch box up to the opening of the WPA tricky. But me? I'm a WPA man
That's one hypnotic vid .
are you aware that sign in your avatar, is actually an official sign here in Amsterdam?
They put some here and there, where you will be fined if caught smoking in those areas.
Mercatorplein, Amsterdam West
I'll think about the WPA/WPW some more, and def read back that discussion.
Looking forward to this setup ..
