    That looks beautiful :) You have inspired me to try some sativas this weekend. I stick to glues and cookies most of the time, and og when the price is decent...but sometimes those sativas are really fun and tasty. That reminds me of some good strawberry cough me and some friends ordered years ago and smoked over a game of pool, good times!

    I'll second the warm water!

    I like to turn my water heater up to 140F and run water thru my pieces before use. If done daily the piece stays clean and it heat soaks the glass to keep the water warm a long time.

    I'm lucky, my tankless heater is right next to a utility tub I use for cleaning, so the hose is convenient on the spigot for a lot of cleaning projects.

    I've seen a few different setups on FC, but the easiest, most cost effective version is a dehumidifier hose (3/4" threaded end, 5/8" tubing x 10') with a 3/8" barb and a (I think) #2 size bottle stopper for brewing. The stopper fits the 18.8 tapper perfectly for a friction fit and I can force a fair amount of water thru the piece.

    For 14mm pieces, I use just the hose pushed into the glass, I can't find a stopper/barb combination.....

    Not the exact parts I have, but here's some examples....

    Hose

    Barb

    Stopper

    Today I spent some time cleaning my WT to sparkling condition and cleaning ELBS etc...
    Decided to use some hot water in my WT, usually use it dry only.
    Ground up some Tuna Rockstar Kush in my grinder and loaded an ELB.
    Nice easy draws result in whiteout conditions with masses of vapor!!
    Flavor and effects on point, slightly muted compared to dry but very close.

    Having a lazy Sunday afternoon!

    @lazylathe I had some GRAPE APE with a water pipe.

    Fuck hit me hard as a rock.
    I like joints the best for self-induced effect however they hate me?
    Maybe their out of control?

    EVO is smooth sailing to me?
    Such a light weight!

    LMAO!!! That is the HOLY GRAIL!! Being hit hard as a ROCK!!!
    When I feel the need to smoke a joint, I make sure to make it very small and thin.
    If I make them too big, or just like I used to when I was younger, it feels out of control!
    Not even pencil thickness and maybe 5cm long, that's good enough for me.

    EVO is SMOOOOOThhhhhhh sailing!
    Just 1/4 fill the ELB and rip it!!
    It's ALL good!
    I really enjoy being such a lightweight after all these decades!

    You never bug me my friend!
    I am warming the EVO up and will be having some Pink Kush Inica very soon.
    It's almost time for bed...

    With water for now...just for something different.
    I will be back to dry tomorrow!

    EDIT:
    Eating Gummi Bears while taking a hit gives it that extra special flavor!
    Interesting...

    My evo is waiting at the grocery store. (Yes you heard that right lol) what a time to be alive!

    Anyways... couple Qs for you fine folks before i head over to snag it.

    1) Is a heat shield necessary? The one they send doesn’t meet my visual requirements as it looks like a swag beer coozie. If anyone knows where i can buy better looking options on par with the tiki looking one, it would be much appreciated! Otherwise I’ll DIY

    2) looking for offbrand HT suggestions. ~$80 max USD, my lady cannot be trusted when it comes to coordination.
    Thinking of popular glass’ tree swiss combo https://www.popularglass.com/glass-...ratubes-with-base-joint-size-188mm-p-329.html
    Maybe worth getting a base for 20 more?
    If anyone has anything to say about that one or other recomendations I’ll name the maiden buds of chocolate oranges or Qleaner in the Evo after you and ehxale your vapor embodiment into the night sky to live with the stars.

    I have 2 not to Bragg however love the EVO!

    Then again I like flavor these daze’s!
    One is WHITE ((painted)
    One I left BLACK
    Some find them hot so they use a NEOPRENE cover?

    I don’t use anything?

    We’re all different?

    I like PINK but I freaked out some members so WHITE is the color!

    Paint is your friend in this case?
    The COVER is pretty cool if you are bothered by da heat!

    A heat shield is not mandatory. They make it easier to handle the EVO when hot. If you grab from the base of the EVO, it is cooler. I'd suspect they help in developing a "heat-soaked" EVO (less heat loss), too.

    You can utilize your current glass collection by running a tube to your glass piece with the appropriate adaptors. This piece below would fit the EVO side.

    @Mr Turnip, the quartz nails can be cleaned with a torch, the boro nails cannot. That's about it, other than price.

    I think this guy might be what helps me and the miss FC completely. The plenty was great but session style turned out to be not our thing as we usually are multitasking.

    My only complaint is that it is a STRUGGLE to pull the baskets out. Luckily i have the hands of a litch so i don’t notice the heat. I imagine after clipping my nails it will be impossible without a sharp edge or the like. Tried leaving them slightly raised but i hear metal on glass sound (cringe) and it seems the top starts to work its way loose.

    Currently obsessing over ways to use it upright while staying all glass (or almost completely) . THE CLAW thingy looks like the type of solution im looking for, just maybe a bit more refined or purpose built.

    Some sort of dropdown with both joints having the ability to rotate to compensate for height difference would be ideal. I picture a system similar to the way the glass crafty/mighty mp works... silicon o-rings In there maybe... id even be fine with some plastic like s&b uses. Ive never noticed any flavor or smell from that. Hmmm... maybe time to invent...?

    @O-G-Reg, I struggled a bit with pulling the ELBs when I first got the EVO, but a few months later it was old-hat to me. No real problems especially now, even with cut nails, plus it's never too hot in my use. And I'm a serial ELB puller, lol. A dull butter knife is an option until your comfortable and get the hang of it; use it like an old school bottle opener.

    I'm a fan of the glass path too :tup:. Using the Helio dry mouthpiece or a hydratube is top notch for me. I can easily and often clean glass and then get all the flavors pure. Unfortunately one can't do that with a whip. And no whip replacements are needed either. I've seen some wild glass use to get from a separate water piece to an upright EVO :). People definitely do it.




    After that fun Friday session I posted last week, I enjoyed the EVO Sat and Sunday as well and have settled in with starting the first fresh flower draws with the Helio dry mouthpiece... followed by a temp bump and finishing the ELB with a wet hydratube :love:.

    I'm just on the EVO again this Friday eve. And in the groove :leaf:. Enjoying the Strawberry Cough experience (think :science::clap:). It's a lot of cerebral fun times, and I'm easily distracted :sherlock: . I enjoy the whole cannabis routine since I don't do it every day, even pulling out and setting up the vape as well as selecting/grinding the flower or concentrates. Maybe that's why I pull the ELB every time. I clean the glass daily and my VapeXnails sparkle clean :lol:.

    Enjoy the EVO and the weekend everyone [​IMG]

    It's a great Fri night tonight :nod:. Finished the ELB using the hydratube. A good sized ELB bowl needs to be respected and can easily be overdrawn at higher temps... ;) with big big clouds and coughing. The EVO pulls with the best; and it's a rare evape that kills at both large or small ELBs :ninja:.

    @O-G-Reg, thx for that earlier aftermarket Dhgate hydratube option and link. I hope it's full size... I ordered it :tup:. It's such a great price... worth trying.

    We're lucky with the EVO; the Puffco Peak thread recently mentions that they don't have anywhere near the aftermarket water piece support that the EVO does. Cheers to all the current EVO options and support :peace::leaf: :love:.

    @Mr Turnip, I can't confirm the slit differences mentioned but I can give my experience with Boro nails. Looking at first glance, the slit appears to be flat, but with more careful observation there's a slight tilt in the manner described for Boro nails. Mine have it, YMMV.




    I pulled out the EVO this evening :leaf:. I went with concentrates and the hydratube this time, Super Lemon Haze live resin again. I'm still new to sampling concentrates in the EVO and am evaluating and dialing in my method as well as reporting my experiences back here fwiw.

    I must say this time I got great and big lemon flavors off of the first two draws (especially the first draw). Lovely :love:. I milked the hydratube big time and the vapor was super dense. It was the most dense vapor I can remember having. I did three draws total (third one was smaller) and didn't bother with any more draws when the flavor started to get a little toasty. All in all it was great. I'm excited to see that I'm getting great flavors with the EVO and concentrates. It was a standout session for flavors and impressive.

    Cheers

    I'll report back @Mikey :sherlock:.

    Tonight I'm having a very light ELB bowl of some leftover grind from last night with the EVO. After enjoying that live resin session so much yesterday with the EVO, I had a few friends over later in the eve and one of them shared an ELB's worth of a fresh new batch of Acapulco Gold flower they just received :love:. Wow, the new batch looked great and vaped awesomely potent [​IMG] :tup:. A top 2 or 3 strain for me. And it was energizing for hours, far longer than I was expecting from just a few draws.

    Cheers to the Sunday wind-down.

    Just a small heads-up to whoever might be interested in the popularglass tree tube i was asking about... after waiting for my order to finalize for several days I got in contact with steven who told me
    “VISA can not pay due to trade war now” but the site still reps VISA and there is no indication that it is no longer accepted. All they take is Master card or money order (not happening). You can get the same stuff off DHGate from the same seller but its going to be 9-10% more $
