Hey @radiant34 thats an @Alan wood stem. Shoot him a pm.
That's beautiful, I want one!
I got with Ed about some stems for my new Milaana. He does these custom and is in the middle of a move. He asked me to hit him back in 2 weeks. Just a heads up.
Thanks for the heads up. Welcome to FC @Little_Trees.
Big props to @cannabis.pro Thanks man-got my discount Milaana stems and the Crafty Liquid pads were a perfect fit. Enjoying my first stem of some yummy OG as I type.
And thanks for the Doob Tube-those cobalt blue ones are my favorite-I only put the best of my flower in those.
EDIT: and I dig the shit out of the medium length. Genius-cooler vapor yet still have better control and flavor. Sweet.
Glad you found a use for those stems that we couldn't find a screen to fit. You sure that Doob-Tube isn't black? Milaana too much will colorblind ya perhaps?
@cannabis.pro That is entirely possible. And you're right it is black. Damn. Even cooler.
There are few things better than a great session with my Milaana. I've really dialed in on those medium stems and find them absolutely perfect. Great clouds, great taste, and the vapor is cool enough for me.
I've found those liquid pads perfect for my Mi stems. I had problems finding a screen that would fit in my long stem and then tried a pad and voila! So when I heard about your stems I was confident I had a solution. I've got one in my short stem that use only for concentrates too, and now one each in the amber stems. The long stem will be taking a bit of a break while I get to know these two amber stems.
Hey guys! Haven't been posting in this thread much because I've been in the Mi2 thread mostly but I think this still applies here. Even though I've been experiencing this with the Mi2, the Milaana line is honestly just so incredible. I forgot how much I loved the instant reaction of breath and trigger compared to manually changing the temp using + and - buttons. All it takes is a single button for an infinite amount of vaping styles and outcomes. Truly is amazing and so much fun. It also helps that it just so happens to be an insanely hard hitting vape. It's not some wispy cloud, super high technique, "well at least it gets me stoned" kind of vape. This thing is a full blown flavor chaser, fat hitter, "oh shit I'm way too stoned" kind of vape. And I fucking love it.
Yep.....hitting my Splinter tonight, but it's the same with my Mi's and my Zion (and my Mi hybrid from @Bravesst ) These things are my favorite "Desktops". Not nearly as portable as my VapCaps for out and about, but great for wandering the 3 level townhome. I'll just pick one, bring my DoobTube, ABV container, and the appropriate stir and tamp tools and set up shop for the evening. I can't even conceive of combustion anymore. It's like eating sand when there's fresh fruit on the table............oh, and don't forget the craft beer analogies.....
Gonna hit this CBD crumble after work with my Milaana and that cotton that comes with it, does anyone have any tips/pointers? Shall i use this cotton that comes with it or go and buy the crafty/mighty liquid pads and use them instead. Cheers!
Id go for the liquid pads. The Hemp, for me, is kinda raspy! Just my HO!
I have such good luck with the Crafty Liquid Pads that I use them as the screen in all four of my stems.
So I've been doing this kinda thing lately.
It's the second time I've done it. My first one wasn't done as well, but still became my favorite basket screen and lasted a few years. I started doing this in my ssv days and still prefer it with zion, milaana and my new fav the splinter. It's so nice not to have to soak & replace the thing after just 3-4 hits (I'm more of a ripper, always trying to perfect the 'one and done' kinda hit). This is one of the newer basket screens from amazon, they seem a little better suited. I made the holes with a standard ssv/7th floor marble poker.
Along these same lines I have a ton of these s&b dosing capsules, and was thinking that a standard glass stem could be customized by someone like @Oregonglassblower to accept one. I think it would make a nice, more free-flowing alternative. The stem gets dirtier but the 'screen' lasts longer. If you use these capsules you know that the lids take most of the wear & tear, so you're bound to have extra bottom sections. And of course the whole pre-loaded holster thing would be nice to take advantage of in 18mm stem-world.
As you can see in this (horrid) photo, it's already pretty close.
on the Tubo thread @funkyjunky works on a stem with SB dosing caps
I am waiting to receive my Milaana from Vapefiend and reading this entire thread makes the wait longer. It will come with one Lg Hg2 battery and I plan buying 2 more on Amazon. Will 3 be enough for a 2-day trip? I usually consume 2-3 full flowerpot bowls a day. Also, I see you are experimenting with S&B capsules which is the best mod and packing for a big load?
Thanks in advance!
Suggest you don't buy cells on Amazon. EBay and Amazon have had rewrapped and subpar batteries being sold as A Grade cells. Not sure of a good source in the UK, but I would suggest a local Vape shop or battery depot over Amazon.
akkuteile.de is a very good vendor in Germany. They surely deliver to the U.K., too!
Been using my Milaana a little bit for the first time since receiving the Splinter and I gotta say I think I prefer the Milaana again haha. The draw restriction is less than half I'd say and it just feels so much better in my hand/carrying around than the Splinter on top of my heavy 2 battery box mod. Maybe a smaller mod would help that some but it would still be long and awkward. I haven't used TC since the first week I received my Splinter and while wattage mode is cool I think once you get the hang of an unregulated device like the Milaana it becomes kind of unnecessary. I won't be getting rid of the Splinter any time soon but I think the Milaana will become my go to again.
Thank you for the reassurance here. I keep rotating back to the Milaana myself over other vapes in the arsenal thinking "Why am I doing this?" "This old vape again..." etc. Then my face melts away and I remember.
I recently bought one of Alan's wongs for my Milaana. It has a smaller 8mm glass tube in it for micro dosing. It has really improved, if thats possible, the performance of my Milaana. I don't know if its the wood, if its the reduced diameter, the combination of the glass/wood or what but it is the bomb. I know some people really liked DDaves reduced diameter pieces! Maybe that is why. It heats up quicker-the load that is-and produces better. Alan say's that the wood scavenges less heat. I run the glass tube up in the wong about 1/2". Don't know why but it just works better!
I love my @Alan's wongs.
He included some smaller screens that fit into the glass tube liner. And yes, this is a very fine setup indeed.
I have too have been enjoying my milaana's of late.
@Cheesequake ecactly why I've been using my Mi2 over the Splinter. Easier to hold, regulation not always necessary. Just really enjoyable to use a Milaana. Love my Splinter for consistency through water tho.
How's the draw resistance with the smaller stem?
It's a bit more restrictive but, somehow reduces heat up time and produces more vapor. I find I'm getting 5-6 very good draws on that little 8mm glass tube/screen. Its probably less than .05grams.
