Perhaps not the vape for you.
Here are some photos from the opening procedure:
(The unit still works exactly the same after putting it back together. Still seems to smell a little, but hard to compare since I haven't used it for a while. Also hard to compare the LEDs if that paper has any boost for the same reason.)
when i have to wait, i buy stuff.
spent a couple hours at dhgate and got this and this.
fake mobius. 9 inches tall
i'm assuming that the evo will go right on top of this thing.
and this honeycomb perk
i already own this one. its my favorite because it holds more water than any other that isn't 24 inches tall..
i love it but i wanted to make sure i have some options with a whip and just popping the evo on top of the mobius and hitting it.
i'm excited but it won't be here until tomorrow!
i'm an old, only child. no patience at all.
it's almost here!!
in the truck about 10 miles away. I'm excited like a kid at christmas.
too bad i'm already quite high. but i just bought 2 ounces for $100 each so i will be doing a lot of experimenting.
Update - i have a large sign in my door window. a blind man could see it. it says i'm home, i'm sleeping knock loudly, then knock loudly again and i'll answer the door.
didn't hear a thing and i'm a very light sleeper. found a note on my door saying fed ex will try again tomorrow. FUCK!
i called fed ex, gave the nice lady on the phone a piece of my mind (i did it nicely). i complained like a kid who didn't get his christmas present , i also lied and said that due to my health, i needed this package right now! mental health is a thing right?
she said she would try to get them to come back today. i doubt it will happen.
i'm so pissed . im all nice and not high anymore, ready to try this beast and nada.
2 oz of pot and no new toys!
update to the update -
my whining worked!!! he'll "try" to redeliver in 2 hours or so. please buddha, let him knock like a lion and not like a lamb!
Have fun with da EVO!
Sporting some LEMON HAZE ATM
ok, i'm loving the nice hits. i'm running through my water device, they didnt give me a mouthpiece. i though a dry one was included. my mistake.
i always search a bit before i ask questions. mostly always.
why when the evo light is green at say 1:00 and i turn it down to 11 or whatever, the light goes red, for well over a minute. is that normal for it to go from green to red by lowering the temps?
i got a whistler but i just inhale a tiny bit less than normal and it's gone.
the baskets are very tight. had a hell of a time getting the 2nd one out. i rolled them around in my fingers to see if that would help the fit a bit. nope.
hmm, i put a basket only 1/2 way in and it works fine. i'll do some reading up on why so tight and how to make less tight. i don't suppose vaseline would work?
haven't coughed yet. i'm filling the tubes about 1/2 way with bud. very smooth. i cough easily and this is not making me cough. yay team.
happy boy so far.
i'm in love. 4 baskets down. gonna try some shatter in a few.
it's like christmas but not!
oh, maybe it goes red when i go down in temp because it's not at the correct temp as it's too hot. huh, get high, get smart!
i've already put a capsule in my mouth for a sec to hold it and inhaled the bud. lol
i already put in a capsule without the top, took a long toke and noticed the weed popping out the top. i run them through their paces quickly.
my last purchase was a disaster, this makes up for it a bit.
holy bat shit the shatter tastes great. i've gone through a couple grams of this shatter, i forget the name, never once did i taste this lovely taste. the used tube looks like crap now. needs a good cleaning. all brownish on the bottom. i tried to mush the shatter at the hole like the dude recommends but i haven't been able to figure that out yet. maybe i'll get some softer stuff but i love my shatter. i only had the evo at like 12:05 .
yee haa, i am high high.
i'm trying to watch a movie called high school. i've had to rewind it several times because i keep missing the same parts. it's funny but annoying. but funny.
Green means it's exactly at the temperature you dialed. If you dial it down, it need to cool down for a while before it reaches that newly dialed lower temp.
Just like when you dial it up, it goes red until it heats up to that higher temp.
Yes, it's been a long time since I bought some extra baskets, but they were always a little inconsistent. Some are tighter than others, but it probably can be adjusted. AMybe with a little bit more force than your figers, maybe try tappping on it with a spoon or something (but also be careful, they can break easily, but also aren't really that expensive)
That can work, but I think you get the best performance when it's at least almost al the way in.
NO! That would be nasty. I don't think vaseline could stand the hot air, and It would clog the screen.
Grams of shatter in the EVO in the first days? That seems quite excessive, just be careful not to overload the VapeXnail with too much, or it might boil through the hole and go down the glass bamboo in the unit. That would be hard to clean. The VapeXnail wors best and safest with very small loads of concentrates.
The way to think about this is . .. the way you need to hit a convection vape. First, pack the bowl correctly. I use an EZ-Loader that I created years ago. Second heat the vape up good. When everything comes together start your hit slow, puffing slightly, until your load starts to give.
no i didn't put 2 grams through this thing yet. might be interesting though.
i'm still working on my loading the shatter technique. i'll have to order more glass tubes as they get nasty real fast.
the one screen tube thing is simply too tight. i'm going to toss it and get a few more.
i'm very happy with this purchase.
i appreciate the help. i need it.
i just tried some dry hits. i took a huge hit, huge for me anyway, i would have been coughing my butt off if i did that on my other devices. i'm so happy. dry hits at 10:00 ish. smooth, sweet, perfect.
@Above2cloudz, I didn't say the ELB was one part, rather it was made from one material. And old posts/information have noted there's no glue or welding involved; the ELB is simply pressed/folded together. I rather like the ELB design and think it's well done, simple and effective, plus many users report it's very durable.
It's great to hear you're enjoying the EVO and happy with the purchase @stressed, enjoy . There are lots of ways and methods to use it. I've been sharing my experiences as a new user in detail since the Christmas holidays and lots of others have shared details as well. There's lots of good info and reading in this thread.
i'm an avid reader of your posts back to february ish. great info all over this thread. the gods have smiled on me as yesterday i got this beauty and today i got word that my last purchase problem has been resolved. which means, MORE GLASS! :woot:
That's some great looking glass @stressed. Let us know what you think of all of those options. This thread can always use more glass talk .
LEMON HAZE = .125 gram’s
MAUI WOWIE = .100 gram
Total rosin EVO Nail= .225 gram = that’s all I can handle?
Sorry I’m such a lightweight?
1 gram ROSIN per week maybe?
14 gram’s COLAS per month these daze’s!
4.3 ROSIN monthly 2-B = CIVILIZED
i need a gram of top shelf bud and about .2 of shatter a day to remain civilized.
getting cranky is the result of being dry.
haven't been dry in 40 years.
live long and prosper.
i'm going through , 2.5 to 3 grams yesterday in this thing. it's like eating just one potato chip, can't do it. i'll mello out in another day of testing her out. i'll have to crank up the heat and see what i can handle. getting high as high can be though so i'm not complaining.
i'm staying around 11 to 12:30.
probably going to buy one of those there fancy vibrating deevices. so high i can't think of what they're called... : it's only 4:54 a.m. but i've been up since 1:00.
my usual bowl size is about .1 per load. i use the mighty pods to eye ball approx .1.
i have put the pods in iso a few times already. when i can't see through them, i figure it's time. i'm going to buy more pods and glass tubes for concentrates.
i'm inhaling MUCH more deeply than i usually do. with 1/2 the irritation. i have to really work at it to get to where i cough.
i'm surprised that i hadn't looked into this beast years ago. it should be in every bodies arsenal.
70’s when HAWAII was still a paradise we grew CANNABIS and super cropped and pulled males to make da female plant’s B empty concerning their pollen infusion?
Maybe 10 of us at the PALE BLUE DOT lived da dream?
With so many people land locked?
Not everyone had sand on there toenails?
Some shoveled snow to go 2 school?
We all have a different experience?
MAUI WOWIE is in my EVO 2-day!
What’s in your EVO?
Great to hear @stressed . The EVO is an excellent end-game vape consideration that doesn't get enough talk out there .
Another great EVO Friday here . We need more weekend posts so don't be shy .
I've used the ultrasonic cleaner a number of times now on the VapeXnails and after trying numerous things I find that using it with PBW cleans the nails perfectly. I also then take the PBW solution and use it to clean my other glass such as a hydratube or tubes. Even with a quick cold hold and rinse, the PBW solution worked better than the recycled ISO I was using. I highly recommend PBW for cleaning. Fast, easy and effective.
I had extra clean glass and everything with the EVO today . I went with a 1/2 ELB of (Boveda) fresh quality Strawberry Cough and it's been great. Clouds at 320 F . Smooth, potent and a big cerebral ride so far . I'm lowering my dose ; any more than a 1/2 ELB is just overkill for me, though fun . And it's good to use less .
The whole EVO ecosystem continues to impress. It's a mature and well supported product. The ELB loading tool is something you'll use all the time. I use both dry and wet mouthpieces. The Orbit is great for storing the ELB and nails between sessions and draws. I use the silicon pad to help swab clean the nails between use. I have a number of different tools from grinders, stirring rods and dab scoops to pipe brushes, cotton swabs (including 6" ones for future bamboo cleaning) and ultrasonic cleaners. It all helps to make the whole vape experience simple, smooth, efficient and excellent.
Enjoy the EVO .
woke up at 2:30 a.m.
weighted out a gram (top shelf stuff)
finished the gram at 7:30 a.m.
i may have a problem.
i had 4 pods. one didn't fit after numerous tries and squeezing so i tossed it. i've since "lost" 2 of the top caps so i'm down to 2 caps and 3 pods. i'm suspecting gremlins. little buggers have been moving my stuff around for decades.
i ordered 4 more pods. should have ordered 8.
i usually vape around 375f but run all around that temp. i'm mostly vaping at 12:00 on this thing (350f) and below. last few pods full at 1:00 on the evo.
i hope i get over this soon or i'll be purchasing a lot more weed. not that it doesn't get me stoned, i guess it's just my desire to experiment. constantly .
time to weigh out gram 2 for the day and although i haven't had a lot of luck with vaping my shatter, i shall try, try again. lower temps might help as 1:00 makes it harsh very quickly or maybe i am pulling too hard, too long.
i've been pushing my tolerance a bit too much the last month, just randomly toking as i'm sitting here with vapes everywhere and ground up weed ready, willing and able.
i keep my consumption down quite a bit when i just weigh everything. i have taken up the bad habit of being really nicely high and thinking, i need another pod full! duh.
the ABV is always nice and uniform. light to coconut brown depending.
somebody needs to invent a better, less hot way to extract the pods. not terribly inconvenient but i'll need to grow my nails a bit more.
hmmm, shatter at 11:00 tastes good, not too hot. so much experimenting to do and i'm running out of shatter. we don't have delivery around here yet! YET!
speak of the devil - just got a text for live cured resin. i'm pretty lazy though. might have to nap if i go. shit, $70 per gram. nope. not for me. maybe. i tried "diamonds". meh, it was good but worth $25 or $30 more per gram?
AND I keep spacing out and leave the bud sitting there in the evo waiting for 10 minutes or more.
it's nice that it doesn't burn up.
I feel the exact same way. When speaking of end-game desktop vapes, the EVO isn't mentioned nearly enough and it's performance definitely warrants a mention. Super smooth, great flavor, dual purpose and extremely versatile given built in 19mm male joint.
Mine doesn't get as much use as it should as I tend to prefer logs for micro dosing now but I'll have to pull it out this weekend and give it a spin...or two.
My only gripes are the auto shut off feature and lack of digital readout.
I know exactly what you're saying. I like to experiment a lot when I first get a vape. I use CBD flower and its really helpful for trying out new vapes. Its cheaper and prevents one from getting too stoned too. A lot of options online.
It’s OK to B-high?
EVO production 4 flavor & effect if that is your aim?
1:00 is my ZONE with the proper cure of the CANNABIS
It's been a great Saturday with the EVO so far. For a bit of a change from other Saturday's I started with a 1/6th ELB load of fresh quality Blue Dream flower. It was lovely . A friend visited and I loaded a separate ELB of flower he brought and wanted to try in the EVO. He's still new to vaping and a combuster, and the EVO still delivered clouds with two big coughing fits . The EVO is a very potent extractor .
I then did two microdabs of Armageddon shatter concentrates and Super Lemon Haze Live Resin with the VapeXnail and EVO. This vape is so flexible and it delivers the goods . All while being so smooth too .
I'm still experimenting in many ways. I've found that microdosing / small loads (1/4 ELB or less) benefit from EVO heat soak as some here have recently recommended . Let the EVO sit 15-30 minutes before using it. One doesn't need that with 1/3 ELB or more. Same thing with using concentrates and the VapeXnail; heat soaking when at 12 o'clock on the heater switch (~350 F) has been beneficial . It's been easy to dial in a great EVO experience , though I'm detailed oriented which helps .
Enjoy the EVO .
while waiting for dhgate to deliver (they say about month. dumb ass, i should have put a rush on them but i read that orders come in a lot quicker than estimated so we shall see.
in the meantime, i just bought a graphite calyx. factory 2nd. i'm going through my favorite water pipe but i want to try this thing out. hopefully it'll be here quickly.
Factory Second: Graphite Calyx
Sale price $39.99 Regular price $59.99
COMPACT • COMFORTABLE • EFFECTIVE. The Graphite Calyx, named after the protective layer that surrounds a flower in bud form, was designed with comfort in mind. The NEW mouthpiece shape with added percolator for moisture conditioning, puts ease of use & effectiveness together in one compact piece. At a fraction of the cost of our high end HydraTubes, the Graphite Calyx is a great way to start your Vapexhale journey. Easy storage - great for travel. Made from gray borosilicate.
Stands 7.5 in tall.
"Circ" style percolator.
loving this beast.
I have a Calyx...not sure if I bought it as a second...I have done that in the past with VXH and really notice the flaw unless looking REALLY hard.
Hope you like it...def different than a HT. More of a sipper than a ripper and I like it for that on occasion.
that makes me happy as i prefer sipping to big hits. which have their place but sipping is where i live.
i'm going to start slowing down in a day or so. i'm down 1.75 g since 2:30 a.m. plus a 2 hour nap.
i'm now only loading .05 per pod. gives me 3.5 tokes of my typical toke size.
i'll have to start my wake and bake with .05 and then .1.
i realized earlier today, that i have 2 water tools that allow me to put the evo right on top and there are several mouthpieces available. same water pipe, i just bought a spare.
i vaped the last of my shatter. i turned it down to 10:00. i liked it a lot down there. next time i go shopping, i'll def get a couple more grams of different quality waxes and see what i like the best in this thing.
Shit, just noticed my typo.
I canNOT see the flaws unless looking really hard.
Recently fell back in love with my evo. We’ve finally got good quality flower in my town consistently. I’ve been hitting mine dry at 3 pm on the wheel. Does anyone else go this high? I get a nice dark brown ABV but no combustion and potent effects.
