    I see that you have both the Vapman and the Lotus. I use the Vapman with my bubbler (MFLB Orbiter) with great success and I was thinking about getting a Lotus to use the same way. Do you think there's any difference in results between these two. They really seem to be very similar in use. BTW it seems that the Lotus is only available on line and not in the Vancouver area smoke shops which is why I got the Vapman.

    I'm also interested in a comparison between the two.

    Sorry - do not own the Vapman and have only used it once a few years ago when not exactly 'with it' so I can't provide a proper first-hand comparison unfortunately.

    However, the Vapman is almost entirely conduction (correct me if I'm wrong?) and the Lotus is essentially entirely convection, so they should theoretically provide different vape 'signatures' and flavors.

    The Lotus tastes very very good. It pairs perfectly with glass and it would look perfectly at home atop an orbiter. It's not the easiest vape to use (you will combust) but it's a pretty fun piece. I find that the screens require more frequent cleaning than any other vape I own. No idea why, but it is annoying...

    I have quit using a particular type of butane vape (vaporgenie, daisy, lily). When I use a butane vape where the flame is blown directly into the vaporpath and airpath causes a tightness in my lungs that requires recovery time to feel normal. I think the problem for me using this type of vape could be that the air is too dry after flame heated. I gave-up using butane flame vapes that blow blue flame directly into vaporpath/airpath. It has been worth it to me to give them up.
