^^ dislike, brother! that looked like a beautiful piece! I love that stem on the perc.
I think you are correct...I have recently seen reference to noon on the dial being 177c, and 5:00 being 260c which makes sense since it is a hybrid flower/concentrate vape.
ahhh shit , that was a nice 1 , RIP... Sorry buddy , i think it's time for something new.
I'm going to break everything in my collection.
Time to start over.
Glass hates me?
EVO session = CIVILIZED
....comes with the territory....you know that...my friend.
Have the Herbal Blends on VXL's website EVER been available? I remember it was excuse after excuse with their previous Cloud when I asked about them, but who have figured they would have been released by now, since it's been what, 3 years? lol
guys I'm pretty sure the nails get hotter regardless of where the dial is set because they are lower in the EVO that's why it works as a hybrid device.
But the temp heat shields say max temp is 500F and 12oclock is 350F
I think all of these products have lots of herbs listed to make it look like it's for stuff other than weed. I saw another vape website that had like, 15 or 20 different herbs you can vaporize listed.
Yeah but Stonemonkey said Papamonkey was working on them! He's like an herbal alchemist or some shit...lol
Yeah, they fool everyone.
Hey, considering getting either the Hydrabase Octa or Honey edition. Anyone have experience with either? Are they worth it? Anyone with first hand experience?
I have the bomb edition but really you're asking between minimum and maximum diffusion. Do you want to get the most flavor from 8 single tubes or do you want tones of bubbles from the honeycomb? That's really the difference.
Uk evo owners.....
Vapefiend now has the new heat shields and incycler..
Cant find the incycler directly, but it's +280 quid ontop of the evo price, instead of 90 quid for a normal tube....
I have an Octa. It's cool, but not my favorite piece at all.
The quality on the perc actually has me a bit leery on making more glass purchases that do not have a glass artist's name on it. Mine may not be representative of all pieces, but the "octa" perk is crooked & the arms are also uneven. If it had been sold as a "Factory Second" at a discount I would have been very satisfied.
I try not to run too many percs at once, so there is no using it with my Swagger Double. I'll use the Evolver 'Tree with it & sometimes just the dry mouthpiece... but it really comes to life with the custom mouthpiece I had made (and a bit of crushed ice!) Where it works perfect for ice is when the ice melts it just goes into the can which can hold more water no problem.
£329 by itself before discount codes
I have the Octa which I pair with the Hydrabomb. It is a very nice piece. I get great results with the Evo and the Grasshopper by using the Octa wet and the bomb dry.
Just curious what you think of your EVO vs GH @Southern Chef. I have recently fallen hard for my GH, and have a brand new EVO on its way. I don't think that the EVO can match the GH's vapour density perhaps, especially under 1g? But the EVO has way more volume of vapour.... does that sound about right?
That sounds about right. I favor volume over density so I love my Evo but the GH is a great vape. Apples and oranges.
....going with evo today.....amongst other things.
"Congratulations your unit is back from the Vape Doctor".
So, Just got my EVO returned from the 'Vape Doctor'. Came back with the red caps covers and a free ELB inside the socket!Now I'm back to 10 working ELBs in my rotation again.
Also got a business card telling me that it was serviced by Colleen. Thank you Colleen, wherever you are.
After allowing my unit to get closer to room temperature for a full hour, I tested the indicators first. It does stay cold for a long period on it's own, especially after being stored in a delivery truck in Feb winter where I'm at. And there is a shut off feature that will not allow the EVO to heat up if it is below a certain temprature. So as to not have heat shock to near frozen glass.
Preheating it earlier. Trying it now. <cough> <cough>? Works great! So essentially, I bought a used EVO, Paid apx 12.00 to have it shipped to PA. And it returned working better than my DD and with a new ELB sitting in the socket waiting to be tested out. I'm guessing anyway.
So they received it Feb 8th and it came back yesterday. That is less than a week of turnaround time. The bamboo looks different than I remember it. Wonder if it got replaced or reseated. I knew it needed to be reseated.
They are sold out. But Vapexhale doesn't seem shy about what most users plan to use it for.
I prefer to get these herbal blends on my own anyway. (part of FC's ethnobotanical thread.)There are a few single 'teas' listed that I haven't tried individually. So I will borrow their ideas.
@ataxian I looked at the right side of this pic and was wondering how it was even standing like that, I mean if you look at the glass right above here ^^^ The bottom isn't even setting on the tile at 90 degrees. OR is this some visual trick? Oh wait it's balanced on the Arizer.
Not prying, Someone mentioned your condition earlier. So I'm thinking that much more how to have a clutz free setup where I'm at and pass that on. My desk space is a consideration.
You might want a flat shock absorbent space on that tile surface to help with things sliding on that smooth tile. And to keep things with a large footprint that much more stable. Not necessarily more things to add clutter. Just a mat setup and something under neath that to have more stability with shock and perhaps heat absorption. Silicone mats can be rolled up and taken to a sink for cleaning as one example.
I'll get around to posting a pick of my setup. Just saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of glass. I have saved myself with adapters being dropped or prevented from rolling off the table with the mat I have. It has a raised lip which is great for liquid spills and anything cylindrical from completely rolling off.
Broke way too many glass pipes on tiles and concrete back in the day and also later when I was new with Gong. Found certain designs of adapters lend themselves to breaking. But now I have two working EVO's ATM and knew I had to take a civics class with glass and get CIVILIZED before the EVO and HT arrived. So glad I got to know the in's and out's of RMAing and Vapexhales's rep before buying one, then two EVO's.
I feel very CIVILIZED not stressing that my #2 EVO went to the V.D. while my DD was being used at home. Imaging owning one and having the worry as a first time buyer, then having it sent to the manufacturer.
Nice pic. And it explains the type of problem that I thought I was having with the #2 EVO. When I tipped it upside down, there was a small amount of sliding motion on the inside plus I figured that the element was not touching the glass entirely. Mentioned that and a few other possible probs that was causing it to misbehave. I am curious about the internals of all vapes and their designs and like all EVO internal pics, even more so.
Have an even better idea of how it was meant to be disassembled and reseated and enclosed. So the heating element is meant to be a short distance below the socket.
Is it OK to write FUCK?
The EVO will FUCK YOU! (help get you off combustion)
Well umm.. prepare accordingly? I'll take the EVO over combustion any day! FUCK COMBUSTION!
Can you write FUCK at the fuckcombustion site? Yes! As long as YOU are doing the same to combustion.
Have you considered a silicone bong as a back up? I have some slit downstems that might be happy to pair with one of these tube style withthe extra grip.
I'm wondering if I should send my other EVO to get calibrated at some point?
I have a lot of glass stuff.
I will just break it all before getting new stuff.
CANNABIS = CIVILIZED
The EVO is good WET or DRY!
The mouthpieces are really large?
What's with the 500 year old design?
Bad taste disease?
I will make my own.
It may be the only way to get what you want?
I combusted for the 2nd time on my Evo last night, dial at 3. I knew I was pushing it but I gave it that old college try and BAM-- thick brown smoke all through my hydratube. Thank God I had just purchased some PBW. I did a decent clean with 99% Iso and then I filled a container with boiling hot water and added in some PBW and submerged my HT in that overnight. Picked it up this morning and gave it a very thorough rinse. My HT is back to NEW!!! No smell at all and the glass looks beautiful !
I have pushed 3:00 and combusted and thankfully can quick clean my HT with PBW, ISO and citric acid and warm water with time. Also on the FC PBW thread for more info and tricks.
Any downstem will sit closer to 90 degrees. Bad taste? Is the silicone anti-microbial?
Yea make your own glass with perhaps a sturdy base in the design so you can add your attachments.
The EVO that came back from the Vape doctor is doing great
