    You'll need to pull a little faster with smaller amounts, they'll require less heat overall compared to full trenches. I've had great luck vaping enough to cover the bottom flat part of the trench, up to right to the rails.

    How much does a full trench measure out?

    Depends on your grind size. I like about .125g, so split a gram into eight equal piles. You can also fit more kief in there than you can flower...

    No worries about the time ive been inand out of doctors offices and hospitals pretty much every day of the last week and a half, before that i was visiting family. Never head of North Rhine-Westphalia but i did my googling :). My brother has lived in Germany for 11 years now first in Stuttgart now he is up out of the valley i forget the name they just moved recently. Well if you want to daydream check out wedmaps.com many places have photos of the shops you can admire.

    I havent gottem my MFLB yet bythe time i had the money again 4/20 sales werent far off so im waiting rather impatiently lol for someone to have a sale with the celtic tree design. Ive found great priced plain sets but what can i say i want something artsy lookin :p. If i like it i will get one of the package deals in plain for around the house and backup. If the top is glass i can always etch it myself with something simple.

    So i cant compare but i have to say at night i love that i can just turn it on and not worry about it burning while it heats up by the time ive got myself tucked in its ready for me. MJ has been a huge help for sleep mainly in not waking up so much but as i find i can take a little more it puts me out faster. Last night i was out in 45 minutes instead of 3 or 4 hours without it.

    Just a tip for changing herb mid week i get these http://www.amazon.com/Darice-2025-2...id=1397618583&sr=8-1&keywords=bead jars small locally. I number the top of each jar then i write down on a note card which # is what. I have 2 jars per strain one for fresh grind and one for what im still working on. Its been a very handy system for experimenting :). They are decently cheap and they seal well enough not to be terribly smelly. Its not perfect but good for us low tolerance folk.

    Friends and Neighbors,

    A reminder: My personal 4/20 celebration this year is a free acrylic stem (or two?) of your choice in length (up to say 6 inches?). You need to be in the US (so I can mail them out from home.....). PM me with your name, address and requested length, I'll put you on the list and make them up and send them out 'right after the holiday'.

    Don't be shy, there's maybe 15 or 20 on the list so far. I'm planning on getting another 'stick' or two of tube (six feet) so get on board!

    And enjoy 4/20 even if you don't?

    Thanks guys,

    OF

    I don't recall owning a LB to be a condition. I obviously don't want to waste time, materials and postage on a piece of plastic tube that has no use to you, but if you're seriously planning on getting a box soon I suggest you get on board. PM me your name, address, and length choice.

    Maybe this will spur the MFLB buy, which is a good thing IMO.

    Thanks for all the kind words, guys. My pleasure really, a bit of payback if you will.

    The MFLB sucks man. You get the smallest rips and if u are lucky not to combust the flowers u may get a nice little rip. Haha a majic flight box. Get some concentrate and grab a thermovape Luna u will never buy anything again

    You're new here so I'll give you a little advice: it is a really bad idea to go into any model's thread, attack and mock it, and tell someone to buy a competing product. That's a quick way to get a warning point. KidFated is right, you certainly don't know how to use the LB.

    Sorry you're having trouble, but if you came to convince folks MFLB is a bad idea my advice is 'pack a lunch'. 23,000 posts here, most all of them very positive.

    While I too think your technique could be holding you back (it does take some learning) comparing the little box with a beast like Cera/Luna EO is like saying 'fine wines are bunk, Wild Turkey is so much better'.

    I see 3 options for you at this point. First, perhaps get serious about learning the box and see if we're all crazy or not. Work on your technique until you can get the results we do. Secondly, maybe sell your (slightly used box) and never look back? But the thrid, trying to convince us all that we're nuts and don't know what's good for us, is going to take some doing.

    You do realize a lot of us have both already (and a lot more in some case) and therefore have opinions based on our first hand experience, right?

    IMO MFLB fits the needs of way more users than Luna EO does. Luna is really a tool for specialists I think, where the box is 'everyman's vape'???

    Whatever you do, you should be satisfied with the vape you buy and use......or you should keep looking. In the end it's often a very personal choice.

    Good luck in your quest.

    MFLB was my first vaporizer, and still is the favorite among the rest. I use it daily, or the MD. Which is a great addition to the Magic Flight family. The MFLB is so versatile, you can go from wispy hits to clouds and in between. Use hashish, cannabis, abv, kief, ((concentrates(especially in the MD)) whatever you want. In addition to the PA you have a great device that can handle the needs of many. The size, its reliability, portability, and the sheer artistry of it makes it my first choice. Love MF.

    I gotta say it, Vito ya got a real way with words........

    Good point. There are times when it's necessary of course, but IMO keeping the bud really dry going in largely prevents that. Feed it raw herb (or poorly cured) and it's gonna get messy for sure and need some attention.

    Build up on the rails really bothers some folks, I fear many damage their box trying to scrape it off.

    I think, like in other areas, many times the cleaning does more harm than it fixes. Best plan is to avoid (or minimize) the problem though. And if it does start to foul, deal with it while is modest.

    This is your opinion, but there are many here who would disagree; myself included. Please do not bash a product just because it doesn't suit your needs. The Launch Box has a solid reputation here.

    Spot on. Occasionally with a new batch, I'll get excited to try it out and load it while it isn't fully dried out, and that does indeed cake the screen up much faster than normal.

    As for scraping the rails, I personally have ruined 2 MFLBs this way over the years. The one I just had replaced had the tiniest little bit of screen lifting off of the rail and it was completely ineffective in vaporizing the material, even when fully dry and ground with the FG. I need to be more diligent with my q-tips and ISO!

    Maybe being a little less diligent with the q-tip will help save your boxes.

    Why do this when you've already ruined 2 boxes this way ? Use the brush.
