    Hey there Underdogs, looks like I've got some catching up to do on the thread.. Underdogette and I have been out of internet range since just after my last post as our traveling shenanigans have continued as those of you who read our non-UD blog(s), follow our non-UD social media, etc already know. For those who don't just suffice it to say that many shenanigans have been, and continue to be, had. :brow:


    Ahh, thanks CC, much appreciated, we try!


    I know you already got past this a little bit after you posted this but I'll post here anyways. As an alternative to the VVPS I've had good luck with these adjustable wall-warts. No display screen but it's easy enough to make a mark with a pen (or whatever) at settings you like. https://smile.amazon.com/AUTOTOOLHOME-AC110V-Adjustable-Adapter-Electric/dp/B01JZMY50Y


    Ohhh cool graph and cool linked thread.. thanks man!


    Thanks Vito and happy to see you drop by! :tup:


    Hey Diggy long time no talk man! Glad to hear you're still enjoying the Air Core.. not many of those still around!


    I can't really add anything that Jcharles doesn't add below other than you might try some voltages in between with an extra long heat up time (like an extra 5-10 minutes) if you haven't already. Sometimes works wonders with difficult strains, etc. That said I'd try JCharles advice.. he's an UD Cloud Master. No joke check out the videos on his instagram.


    Just so! You the man... er... Dog?

    So I just had this random thought. You know how Microsoft and apple can see what percentage of users have what version of their OS, right? So wouldn't it be cool to see a graph of that info? I'm high as hell, grinning eat to ear.
    Got another nylon bowl packed and with a little CBD isolate on top and going stock voltage through bubsy, the dry bubbler. And then it's off to bed. I love the feel of my warm log Vapes. My dog is a Walnut, which is very smooth to the touch. It's fallen a few times, and it's still kicking ass and taking names with just a couple very minor cosmetic dings in the wood.
    I don't use my ss lite stem anymore cause none of the screens I have left fit it anymore. Eventually I'll order some more, but I need to wait until more things are on the list before I order. :) Take advantage of shipping and all.

    Oh yeah! So eventually I played with the o ring that acts as a stop for glass stems so much that it broke. I really don't use glass very much at all with it anyway, so I really didn't mind. But then one day after months of not caring, I decided I would fix it. I let it cool down and found a length of clean silicone that fit over the core easily and cut a thin section. It stops easily at the pinch where the o ring would normally sit. It had the slightest smell at first and then gone. It's been about a month like this and I've only used a glass stem like three times. But it works well.

    Anyway, to anyone browsing this thread and wondering if it will be a good purchase... Yes. This is one of the companies that makes a solid product with awesome support and solid accessories and a heart of gold. Seriously, great people through and through. But if for some reason you don't want it anymore, there are always people looking to collect the beautiful one-of-a-kind wood Vapes. Easy to find a good home for a good vape. I love my logs!

    So, years ago I had a Dog and loved it. Once I invested in more "powerful" vapes, I sold it. The good news is, I have a new Dog in my life (thanks @bellas)!
    [​IMG]
    My old Dog was larger and it didn't have a voltage regulator. This awesome trade came with a bunch of stems, screens etc. I am really digging the glass stems at about 12 volts.
    Anyone have any tips, suggestion, etc? Anyone know what kind of wood and/or the name of this particular beauty?
    Nice to have a warm Dog again!!
    Here is better picture:

    Yep looks like Figured (probably Claro) Walnut. Most likely stuff we milled ourselves that came from the orchards near our old house/shop in Paradise. :cheers:

    Welp, I just pulled the trigger on a figured black walnut dog (the current vape special) and I couldn't be more excited!! I've been back and forth on what to buy for my next vape and ultimately decided a desktop log was my best bet seeing as I partake at home 95% of the time and really wanted an ultra efficient, microdosing capable, full convection unit. Thanks to some folks on Reddit and the wealth of information in this thread I went with the Underdog.

    Can't wait to receive my dog and I'm happy to be joining this awesome community. I'll be sure to post my initial thoughts and some pictures once I receive it.

    A wise move, friend.
    My walnut dog is now two years old. I don't leave it on 24/7 but it's on every day for several hours.
    I'm very pleased to report that it functions just the way it did when it was brand new - that is to say: perfectly; and looks just the same as it did when it came out of the box - that is to say: beautiful.
    Here it is in it's home environment - under Toby's benevolent gaze :).

    [​IMG]

    Not the best shot of the dog itself - I'll try to sort out a better one.

    Btw @underdogette I see from your FAQs that you still ship to UK. I mention this as I was thinking of reviving a dormant U/D thread on UK420 where I post frequently.

    Hope the resettlement is going well. My very best wishes to you both :wave:
    :peace:

    Yeah I love the wood of my walnut dog. Glassy smooth and dark with swirls of color. My crappy camera can't take a photo worth looking at. But it's some pretty wood to look at when you're getting high. @Tstat yo that's a nice looking dog you have there. I love the voltage controller they make. Good stuff. My dog is good out of the box but it sprouts wings when it's hooked up to the voltage controller.
    Lately I've been using the voltage controller with my other log and it works wonderfully with that one, too. Any log owner would do well having their voltage controller paired with a 15v ps. I don't EVER go that high, but sometimes with glass I will go a little higher than 12v. Maybe 12.7 or something.
    I've been only using the nong with a dry bubbler. Actually, I use the nong with both of my log vapes, too. Underdog makes quality accessories. I have really grown to appreciate the solid nong with a 14/19 adapter. Dead simple, flavorful, strong hit, small load. Rip it and dump it.

    I know it's a little cliché to post on this thread about how great Underdog vapes are and how great Underdog and Underdogette are, but to quote David Foster Wallace:

    "Clichés earned their status as clichés because they're so obviously true"

    Underdog and Underdogette are the shit, and so are their vapes.

    These guys have bent over backwards to make sure I'm a happy customer; and I am not an easy customer to please. They've responded to each and every question I've had when most companies would have told me to take a hike and enjoy my product.

    As for the vape itself? The UD has all the simplicity and ease of maintenance that I enjoyed with my Purple Days vaporizer but with much more flexibility. Want a quick couple of hits? Stuff a tiny crumb of bud in a steel tip stem and you can be done before the commercial break is over. Want a longer session? Scooch the screen back on the glass stem and prepare to lose count of which hit you're on. Big clouds? Grind it fine, turn up the temp and call Lando, because you're on your way to Cloud City.

    Thank you to Underdogette, Underdog, and all you FC'ers who've been recommending UD.

    And to anyone that's still on the fence about this vape: doubt not, the hype is real.

    And to think, I wasn't sure it was possible to be more excited than I already am to receive my walnut dog... now my hype level is at 11!!!

    I ordered my UD yesterday and it's due to deliver tomorrow... That's some timely shipping!

    I don't know that this is true for more recent dogs. My SC2 zebrawood glulam and re-cored, last-of-the-OG-standard-core walnut dog both do nicely at 10.5-10.7, through water. 11V is getting into 'doesn't taste so great' territory, verging on charring/combustion. With a direct-draw stem, I bump down to 10.2-10.4.

    Underdogs older than a year or two might benefit from 12V+, but if your dog came with a mini VVPS, the stock power supply is more than sufficient for flower. The current cores are markedly more efficient than previous iterations, the standard package has got you covered, imo

    Truth.

    My mom broke the old whip vape I got her and she's been having trouble using most vapes after a surgery on her good hand, so I was very happy to find out that she not only liked the underdog but could use it well and easily. So, now I don't own an underdog anymore. But it's okay, my mom brought me into this world and has overcome so much adversity...an Underdog for an underdog.

    Anyway, I'm in my 40s, so you know my mom is at least a little older, and even with a disability she finds the UD very easy to use. She loves the warm wood in her hands, too. So there you have it.

    Are there any log (not desktop) vapes with bigger bowls?
    I am about to get UD for tobacco vaping and small bowl size is the only concern remained. I see glass stem has more capacity but it is too fragile for particular application.

    Wow 7 years later and I finally knock at the door! I presently own an e-nano, and love it to death as it works wonders for convection concentrate dabbing. I also have a WoodScents on its way because of all the hype i've heard. Should I also pull the trigger on an UD? Would I be missing anything if I didn't? My usage is strictly traditional hash, rosin hash oil, honey oil, bubble hash, kief etc. and I use a bed of cotton for wick.

    @Xelatsok Sure everyone is different and I am a pig who requires more than most but there are tradeoffs in extraction, reliability and usage that necessitate a bowl close (but not that close) to a heater. We use stems that are refillable so they are endless. Best taste is in first pulls. More stems = More taste. The loss that occurs when stirring (spillage) and flavor makes logs (which are bound by plug length anyways) your best bet for economy.

    The 14mm Gong is one of my favourites. I did break one, user fault, so I ordered a couple more (one for back up).

    It's not currently a option but the 18/19mm OS Nong has the bigger bowl. This is my favourite (I do wish it was glass though).

    Out of curiosity, for tobacco wouldn't an Ejuice, box mod be better? Some PG, VG, flavour and nicotine are the usual ingredients.

    Vaping reg tobacco would include alot of the pesticides, growth factors, and all the other additives as well as the nicotine. And that won't be healthy.

    Get a UD for flower!! Box mod tobacco (interchangeable with flower if you have the right atomizer)

    That's alot of logs. I would add an UD to my collection. The VVPS could be used with your other logs too giving you more control over the temp (read as voltage).

    I need to get the core updated on the Kings Jester, its finally loose after all these years!

    The twig I have is up and running. I've fallen WAY behind on this forum, but my underdogs are still alive and kicking strong. Time to send the jester out for a refresh!

    Is the long glass gong not available ever or just out of stock? Just see the sort one. And they only come in 14mm?
