I recently broke my original glass stem after about 2 yrs of use, so along with the replacement glass stem, I decided to purchase a maple wood stem. After using it at work for the last two days, I really like the wood! Vaping with a subtle wooden flavor is something that is really growing on me, has been since I bought my MFLB, and even more so now that I use an UD for home use, and the all wood MFLB at work.. Wooden Vaping for the win!!
