Woke up from a nap to see this; order placed! Will review it once it arrives.
(Also, only shipping option to KY was 2-day express for $6.45 ... not bad!)
Oh nuts, my PA seems to have crapped the bed today, still pushing out the proper volts from the A/C plug and ranging from 1V at smallest dot-2V at biggest dot, from the banana plug, but not reading any amps from either. Going to try the car adapter tomorrow and see if it's just the A/C plug. Maybe the ones that wont work when turned to full power are defective...
Hey Ant call or email magic flight. They may send you a replacement ASAP.
My beta pa never worked continuously at full power, but works flawlessly at all of the lower power settings that I normally use.
Actually I've been using Batts and hitting it native for that untethered
Vaporizer experience. Watching TV with the Lb ;easier than smoking a joint.
Yeah I plan on trying to contact them on Monday, sucks it died over the weekend. Just posted that to help others and maybe get some feedback if any one else may have had this happen to them.
A question to all of you who have already been using a bubbler for vaping (especially with MFLB):
I've always been interested in getting a bubbler and now that I see that MF is releasing a nice compact one, I might finally get one.
I know the main reason for the bubbler is for colder vapor and potentially using the water as a "filter". Do you guys feel its really needed for the MFLB? What pros and cons do you guys see in using a bubbler with the MFLB, any additional benefits?
Using the launch box through water does cool the vapor, as does simply running it through a whip to increase distance. Another option with water tools is using very warm water, which has a moisturizing effect on the vapor.
IMO the biggest benefit is that it's fun. I enjoy seing bubbles fill with vapor and burst, watching the water move around and seeing the glass fill with vapor.
I don't think it's "needed" by any means.
As for the Orbiter, I really like the wood base and the metal they used. Not to mention the fact that the metal arm is there in the first place, pretty cool… I wish it came in walnut! I think that the whip draw design is interesting and appealing, and would make it a unique experience compared to other glass.. I think that if you had a safe way to store and transport it, coupling it with a battery powered launch box would make for a neat "picnic vape"!
I'd like to try putting some kind of 45º->90º adapter on there so that you could use the mouthpiece from the 'Infamous' bubbler, just to see what it would look like…
Edit: Just noticed that you see the MF logo when you look down the intake. Nice!
After 4 months with my first MFLB I lost it the other night during a bad snow storm. Not sure if it fell out of my pocket or what happened. But when I got home it was gone. Girlfriend helped me trace my steps and after a few hours of single digit weather and high winds I gave up entirely. I loved my LB and I've babied it. I take care of my things and shocked myself when I noticed it was missing. I'm still devastated.
Luckily I had some tax money laying around and was able to purchase one of the mflb club Bare box'. I decided to go with Cherry this time and I think she's going to stay at home for a while. Plugged into the PA waiting for me to get home. I'm hoping when the snow melts I'll find my old one and might be able to warranty it. Or I hope the new owner is happy with his or her find.
Maybe just maybe I will be able to pick up the orbiter in the near future.
Sucks to hear.. but think of it this way.. at least it wasn't a $200+ one. Mine generally stays at home too, but I know the times I do take mine out that if I lost it, as much as it'd pain me at least I know it could have been much worse. If nothing else, the time spent waiting for another one to arrive would be more painful than the small financial loss.
I caved and ordered the orbiter. I figured since I have both the MFLB and MD it will get plenty of use between the two. Oh boy so excited! Will report back with details Happy flights
Yeah if this would have been another vaporizor on the market I would not be patiently awaiting a new arrival. I probably wouldn't have got another.
The wait sure does suck and now I'm back to smoking and it makes me just want to sleep after vaping so much
It definitely enhances the experience. More of a luxury, rather than necessity. Aside from cooling the vapour and filtering it (which is not as needed with vapour in the first place), you are able to milk an extra-long hit. You can also see the vapour in the glass, as well as "feel" it more by the amount of water resistance when you are drawing. This provides added feedback, allowing for the highest quality and smoothest hits IMO you will ever get vaporizing. My friend has the digital volcano, and I can say bar none that using my MFLB through high quality glass provides a far more superior vapour quality, probably the best possible you can get out there.
It can be somewhat of a chore to set everything up...finishing grinder, pack trench, fill with water, etc. but once you do it's the best experience ever. Then again, the beauty of the MFLB is that you can just pack a quick trench, grab a battery, and be vaping in less than a few minutes.
Woohoo! I was just trying to check the status of my Orbiter, but I couldn't find any extra information about the order. Not two minutes after I closed the page, my phone pinged and I got the email saying it's been shipped! Can't wait to get it and try it out.
I wish they had sent the email two minutes later though, then I would have gotten it at 4:20 PM
Well this is the best kind of horrible luck. Wednesday ordered the Water Whip and an extra finishing grinder, which shipped Thursday. Friday the Orbiter was available on the club page, so I ordered that also.
Today, the Orbiter was shipped out, and my Water Whip arrived! I now have two days to try to master water technique with my crappy locally-blown bubbler.
MAN, this water thing is awesome!
After countless vapor-filled days and nights I would say that this particular technique is giving at least to me far better results than any other. It decreases the harshness of the hit in your throat considerably and a full trench gives me an average of four sessions each including four very visible and smooth hits. I might still add here a basic reminder to release the battery when approximately 80% of the inhaling is done. All in all everyone should find their own perfected method if only given enough time and exploring new ways makes one a true master of MFLB.
I just bought an MFLB to play with along with my firewood 2.0. Can anyone post photo / video of their bubbler set-ups? I'm not sure I want to go that route, but it is tempting.
All you really need is some tubing.
Love the box, always come back to it. I always think I need something new or better but it just can't be beat. If you have low tolerance, good material and the right technique it delivers.
All it takes is two hits for me. If I really want to take it there I'll finish a trench.
The d020 hardly needs any more advertisement but I have to say I think the Magic flight + D020 make the perfect pair. I have tried vaping through all of my glass with the magic flight but never really liked anything until I used the d020 with it. The low resistance of the D020 makes the hits feel like a long inhale and the volume is perfect.
for less than $30 i dont think you can get anything better
Thanks for this. I'm totally out of the loop on bubblers, etc so it's good to see what has worked well for others.
I got the MFO today! I tried it with my MD first and then with the LB. Pretty much love it. The base is very very sturdy, likely due to it's square shape. The connecting arm serves as a handle as well as protection on one side of the bubbler. The logo looks nice positioned under the glass. It hits great, and I don't see myself using either device at home without it. I'd say it is more effective with the MD, all things considered I would have still bought this for just the MFLB in the event I didn't also have a MD.
The ONLY thing I'm left wanting is an aphorism on the bottom, which is entirely blank... perhaps an opportunity for my own aphorism?
Glass/wood porn please?
Cherry Box will be here Friday, the wait is killing me..
Orbiter looks epic. Will wait for public release.
I bought my PA and it hasn't worked (never gets box hot enough) so I am gonna email MF sometime this weekend about it.
I've been using the finishing grinder with the box and damn this thing rips clouds out of my glass bong.
