    Although I've been told that the packaging for the concentrate tray was not yet finalized, I can say that the packaging I received came with an extremely well made information booklet about the tray. Kudos to MF for being so thorough in their documentation that explains usage and tips. I liked how the pamphlet was part of the packaging as well with the concentrate tray screwed into the middle (hard to describe).

    Also I would like to note that it is quite easy to overfill the tray. MF suggests a small dab the size of a match head. That is the perfect amount IMO. I tried loading about 2 match heads worth and when I melted it down in the tray, quite a bit overflowed into my screen. :doh: Performance hasn't been affected, however.

    :peace:

    I think more focus needs to be placed on the amount. "Matchstick head" size dab, has resulted in overflow for me and getting a gunked up (beater) box. Knew I kept that thing for a reason. I've tried placing it as a little ball, squeezing it out flat. I just keep putting too much.

    But... it lasts forever!

    Erik told me, he hasn't had any luck with hash.

    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. :lol:

    I have had a tendency to under fill the pad for this very reason.

    The line is from the actual screen section, methinks. The other one (that I've used) doesn't have it.

    OK, I just got the notice from MF, the gabbing lamp is lit.

    I too have not had much success at all with conventional hash. As the instructions said, oils and waxes that 100% vape free are the call. The same sorts of concentrates that work well in Omicron carts are working well for me. Or, to a lesser degree, DART. But if it can't soak into the mat through the screen you're in for some tough times getting the goods hot enough to work, at least I did. Given good material, it does a good job. Depending exactly on what you want, there are probably better choices for regular oil use. It's nice for sometimes of course.

    I think the max load is something like .050, much like DART say. A few big hits or a dozen or more smaller ones. Not much heat makes it to the pad, putting a lot of goods there to heat is working against you.

    Fun little guy, I got sidetracked a few days back when I couldn't get some hard shatter to load in the sucker. I was about to torch it in and try that.....should go resume that I guess.

    BTW, in case nobody's mentioned it, the PA is really important here. You need a lot of power and you need it for a while sometimes.

    CO2 oil is the best stuff I've found for this so far.

    Yes, it is. Using batteries is possible, but efficiency starts to decrease as soon as the battery starts to drain. I used the car adapter with the PA and that worked great! Using the pad in the car while moving is not the best way to use the pad, though. Hit a bump, and the pad moves around in the trench. That being said, it's a hell of a lot better than using batteries, and it does work well.

    ^^ This! The old guy knows of what he speaks.

    We didn't have as much success in producing copious amounts of vapor with the batts. The PA really is a must have for someone who wishes to get the most out of concentrates from their box.

    An earlier test:

    I will make public a couple more once I have the sound tracks filled with music!

    There had to be, if you notice, the one Vito uses doesn't have the screen across it, so the oil starts to bubble. I got scared for a sec that it would spray out the sides or something, but I remembered Papa Vito knows what the hell he's doing with his LB :rofl: I believe that's why they added the mesh screen on top, so that it would break the surface tension of the bubbling oil and keep it in place better? My thoughts on the quartz pad are that it heats up fast, and is responsible for most of the vaporizing going on in the CT.

    I do notice that now that I watched it twice. I also noticed his concentrate pad is about the size of the ones I'm using right now. They do not cover the whole trench.

    Again, I apologize for the delay, I had to remove my verbal part.
    I made these a couple of years ago, before I "swore off" using voice in my videos.
    I know some folks liked when I gave a verbal rundown, but that is no longer part of the program.

    I noticed that you used the long stem, Vitolo. Do you think it's too harsh?

    No... I do not find it harsh at all.
    I was just comfortable with it.
    ...remember that was a long time ago and we were kind of recent to shorties~
    It all depends on the mood. I still use long stems.

    So, Vitolo, you've been testing this idea for them on the OT for over a year? Not a peep out of you?

    My compliments. Honoring your NDA that whole time speaks well of you. Makers need such resources if they're to provide us with the best possible products to choose from. Please accept my thanks for that. We all benefit from it.

    This isn't my first beta test either. I will admit, it's hard not to tell people about the good things that are going to come out. I know how important it is, and I appreciate Magic Flight, so I would never speak up until they say it's ok. I saw the picture yesterday, and thought, "oh crap, that is supposed to be a secret!" I got an email from Erik not long after that telling me it was ok to discuss it. :)

    Please OF, call me Vito... we are old pals now.
    Yes...Well over a year.
    It was not my place to discuss it - you treat the privacy of others as you would have yours treated.

    True enough Quetzalcoatl. I have had a number of units that never made it. Also early versions that were changed before release.
    What I don't keep secret, is my feeling about a vape, if it is already on the market being sold.

    When it is unreleased it is another soul's secret.. and must be kept such.
    when it is released... shouting your true feeling to the world is legit!

    Damn, Vito, I wish we had a 'Vapist Hall of Fame'. I know who I'd nominate for the first leader!

    Stuff like that really 'floats my boat', any more like you at home? "Sage of the High Desert" doesn't half cover it, but it'll do for now. Why, oh why, can't the youth use you for a role model rather than some of the self absorbed shallow ones they do?

    Thanks very much for being just what you are. If I ever grow up, I wanna be just like you.
