    I only own a Vapman and I'm interested in buying more torch powered vapes. Lotus would be the obvious choice as I mainly vape through water but I'm also interested in the VapCap. How does it work paired with a bubbler? Anyone who owns both could give me a comparison?

    I only retired it because I have other butane vapes that are less fragile. The vaponic was one of my first butane vapes and I still use it occasionally. Won't ever sell it! Small learning curve but once you figure it out you'll get great clouds and fantastic taste.

    Why did you retire the Ubie? I've only seen them in 'Puff It Up's web site' and I was considering getting one. It's only $15.00 but the shipping, the money exchange (I'm in Canada) turns it into about 40 bucks Canadian. Did you like it, but just tire of it, or do you still occasionally heat it up?

    I read in the Ubie thread that it is difficult to vape with.

    Lotus and vapcap are both great choices. Since you already have a suitable conduction vape the lotus may be a better choice as its convection. The vapcap is great with a bubbler (and also serves as a portable) but I find the bowl requires frequent reloading for sessions with glass as it's mainly a one hitter. If you can master the vapman then you can master the lotus and it really shines with a good bubbler. For concentrates I prefer using the vapcap though. No muss no fuss.

    As bounce mentioned it can be difficult to vape with and I prefer using the vapcap, vaponic, or peace but it is a good disposable option. For 40 bucks I'd get a vapcap instead though.

    Thank you!
    I'm also really curious about the Sublimator Eliminator but I find very mixed opinions around, does anyone here own one or have tried it? I get it's not the most practical thing and quite dangerous to have around but I'd really like to have a quick extraction, one hitter vape to use with water tools.

    I could have sworn I read somewhere in the VapCap thread that the bowl held about 0.05g (waiting for my Ti Woody to be shipped this week!) That is about what I put in my Lotus - how much are you packing in your Lotus? When I pack mine too much I run the risk of combusting!

    The vapman is sweet because of its features and how discrete it is.

    It seems like no one likes the atmos anymore. I take it those vape pens couldnt survive the battle.

    Has anyone liked the Atmos here at FC? I don't think so... :rolleyes:

    Those vape pens use conduction and with very bad results. Plus, many of them are low quality chinese vaporizers.
    Even with oils they had problems sealing the liquid inside.

    To me Atmos is one of those companies that invests in marketing and not in the vaporizer itself, but thats just my opinion though. I really don't pay much attention to those kind of vapes.

    @StonerSloth I get between 0.05 and 0.07 in my Vapcap. It will be worth the wait.

    I bought the Atmos Boss. Piece of shit. One hole in the chamber makes the draw very hard. No cloud, no high, just spent herb.

    I agree @Hashtag46&2 ! I have had the Supreme v3 for only 1 night and have already forgotten about all the other torch vapes.... this Supreme is the absolute cat's ass! First day in many months that my Mighty did not get any use!

    I just don't see how any torch vape can come even close to the Supreme? Every session is AWESOME! :rockon:

    I still maintain that it is not the most pratical of vapes. At least for my usage.

    It sure is a very nice home vape, but one that needs its proper space to operate without any accidents.

    So, although i definitely see the potential of this little bugger... i always did since this is one of the good but forgotten vapes. Vitolo has very nice videos pulling thick blue clouds, and using it dry, without a bong.

    Like the vapman, it seems people only found out about the Supreme now when it has been around at least for 8 years.

    It hasn't been manufactured in a few years, so I can see why people never hear about the Supreme, since it just came out this year and is a brand new product that is out of stock alot.

    If you wanna see some nice videos pulling clouds so thick they look like you can chew them, check out Ed's Supreme channel on Youtube. Probably the best vapour vids i've ever seen!

    Time for some Supreme Flavour!

    Maybe so... i still think the "flame powered" fad has something to do with the renewed interest.

    Even when supreme was manufactured and praised by many well known members, people where still going for the Solo, or the SSV, or any of the vapes that entered the market since.

    But it really isn't important... what is important is that people are realizing that you can have a wonderfull experience with a ~100USD vape or less, wherein before it was kind of suggested that the best experiences came from 200-300USD vapes.

    I have said since long ago that vapes are inflated in price and that if someone wants a simpler and less expensive vape, there are options that will definitely satisfy you completely.
    The Supreme is yet another vape that proves my point.

    I have been looking at the peace since day one but never pulled the trigger. The same for the vapcap. Now I was browsing and found the vaponic.

    I need some quality input.

    These three see pretty similar other than the vapcap being metal not glass chamber. Of those three which one stands out?? Which one would you pick and why?

    I own a vapman and love it more than any other vape. I had a hammer for around a year and really enjoyed it as well.

    Just looking for an excuse to ramp up my vas on another butane vape to add in the collection.

    I really wish triihouse was still up and running those guys had some awesome and simple vape designs.

    Any ways thanks for any help guys!

    Vaponic is cool because you don't grind, you just place a nug in the chamber, re-sleeve the tube, and hit it with your torch. Also has a way cool, stealth, carry tube.

    VapCap also does whole nugs and comes in an airtight storage case.

    I would love to hear a proper comparison of these two. I just received a Ti/Cocobolo VapCap the other day and I am trying to get the hang of it - it is a little finicky so far. I do love its size, portability, and ruggedness though (all titanium, stainless, and wood.) Too early to judge its performance so far, though.

    I don't think that either the VapCap or the Vaponic will ever be a replacement for a Vapman or a Lotus or one of the Triihouse units, but I can't say for sure.
