    If you are a flower purist, you should get the bender over the hercules IMO. the bender sacrifices the ability to vape oils for the added purity of flavor that comes with glass.

    That is what I was thinking. I love my Bender and all, but I am setting up a Persei for an older person. I kind of feel like the Bender could be a bit more "contraption-esque" for them. The Herc seems to be a bit more self contained. I could be wrong, though. I have yet to actually use a herc. I feel like the 3.7v herc on the persei is possibly the most streamlined setup.

    Ok guys so an update to the issues I've been having with the top part of the Hercules...

    I finally got a really big, super dense cloud that I have been looking for from my hercules, but it tasted really weird...

    I tried taking the mouthpiece off again and to my surprise it had begun to melt so I'm assuming I was tasting Delrin???

    Here are some before and afters...

    Anyone else run into this?

    Before...

    That is scary shit! What really concerns me is the possible health effects from inhaling the fumes from melting delrin!

    If it was me I would stop using that immediately!

    Edit: It looks like it was already starting to melt in those before pictures as well.

    I didn't time it but I'd say I took a couple big hits like usual, about a min a piece, with a few little ones inbetween without the button pressed to try to cool it as instructed. I didn't do anything I don't usually do.

    Ok boss, I'll hold off using the Hercs until I hear back from you.

    Is it really bad that I inhaled the Delrin fumes? Like should I be going to see a doctor or anything?

    One inhale means you probably only got a little plastic fumes, but I looked into delrin fumes and check it out: http://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=246808

    Formaldehyde is some nasty stuff: http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/drywall/docs/whatyoushouldknowaboutformaldehyde.pdf
    but I think a lot of people work around it and are exposed to a lot more than you were...

    to hopefully lesson stress by comparison. i friend of mine back in the day offered to smoke me and two friends out, only drawback was he coated it w/formaldehyde in an effort to make a ghetto version of "sherm". (real "sherm" is cannabis laced w/ pcp) it was late (3:30am) we had little else to do as is the bane of suburbia while under age and nite owls so we said fuck it. the smoke was awful enough, however, my friend had the unfortunate experience of mistaking her water bottle for dude's bottle of the chemical (same exact brand and size) so to lesson the harsh taste of the "sherm" she took two huge swallows of formaldehyde. i've seen a few OD's, more than my share of vomiting, but that was by far the most brutal thing i've ever seen. fyi, that was 15 yrs. ago, and so far she's ok. drink lots of water (actual water) and you should be ok. i haven't had anything near that, hope not to either.

    I believe it was said that the 3.7v was going to be best for flowers only so it won't be able to combust which is what I was thinking about getting but I went ahead and got the 7.4v. You can start vaping flowers after only a few seconds so you do gotta be careful you dont combust but now that I got some bho I'm really glad I got the 7.4v with oil tanks, really loving my herc!
    If you have any sort of access to bho/waxes i'd say get the 7.4v because you may actually end up using the tanks some day..

    the herc has like 8 parts of varying materials...the bender is 2 pieces of glass and a hammer that requires zero maintenance itself. The two glass pieces just require iso soak and rinse. my grandmother could use my bender and she has very poor eyesight. I guarantee she would not be able to use the herc.

    Elemental does the same bullshit, ever wonder why everything is a 20% or higher THC on their menu?

    [​IMG]

    Page Two- [​IMG]

    So, this BBK tests at a 15.05% THC, do we agree? Look on page two for the "Max Theoretical THC" and that is the number they use. Same reason MedMar has a 29% THC bud and same reason people say PureGold is 90-95%. They are basically posting THC-A%, not THC. I don't support (misleading patients.) liars....

    Edit- that wax from revolution looks pretty garbage, no way it's 94%!

    I note one is a gas the other a liquid chromatography result.....not exactly cricket. I'm not sure I'd call it lying as much as misleading?

    I agree, that doesn't look like '6% everything else' to me either.
