    an Got mine yesterday! Got some nice pulls at my first session but it was slightly erratic, after some nice hits I checked the load....still very green with plenty of goodies, great!

    Now I must to train myself to ride this crazy horse!

    Just done some bowls with the Lithe, one using only flower and the other with a bed of flowers for a spoon of kief....what the fuck! I'm taking my hit n°9 and I'm totally done, that small joint shaped vape hits hard, very hard despite a slow beginning being a terpenes waste....maybe that's only a user mistake...

    Pair very nicely with the Orbiter!

    Hello Hello,

    For all the Lithe happy users and future users:rofl:.
    The lithe bowl is large but based on my experience as manufacturer and user( more than 4 years using the Lithe ) I can tell you this.

    1. I recommend filling at least 1/4 of the bowl to have a good vapor experience.if you want to vaporize less than 1/4 you can but I would prefer with a bubbler. ( for the one-hitters )
    2. If you are a new user I recommend filling no more than 1/2 if the blend is too dry and loose. if the herb is resinous no problem because it will stay together. It happens that combusting by error is more common with tobacco because of dryness; with resinous herbs, it is very hard to combust.

    As many might now, the little Lithe works by drawing hot and cool air ( from the surrounding ). it mixes both streams and drops the temperature to the ideal... but... the user has full control over the temperature by drawing slower...or faster... which means less/more cooling air. we made our best to optimize hole sizes and diffuser dimensions to make it easy and comfortable. In the new version, we also added a double wall ( air gap ) to reduce heat waste and flavor preservation; now the wood is isolated from the vaporization chamber.

    greets:)

    Hi,
    When we fabricate a batch we always find rare wood pieces with nice and cool patterns; those are the gamma. They are running out soon since from a few thousands we only get one/two hundred gammas.
    The standard is how the wood type normally looks. In the current version we are using Jumu or northern elm wood.

    Thank you @paytonpenn
    @Lithe_vapes Will you make some gammas in darker woods, like cocobolo or goncalo alves, for example?

    throughout out the year, we are going to have other woods introduced which are:
    Chicken Wing Wood ( jichimu ), ashwood, and walnut. We tried Zitan... beautiful but too resinous. The lithe is a very small vape, therefore heat within the chamber had to be well managed in order to preserve the wood and avoid unpleasant vapors. also, the woods are carefully selected for that reason.( with the lithe 1.0 some customers experienced unpleasant flavor from the wood. NOT anymore with the new model, because of the double wall patented designed which dropped the wood temperature significantly, decreased heat loss and isolated the load around the chamber. in short, yes we are going to have more wood and very nonresinous dark woods but not yet.

    Hi my friends,

    2 weeks ago I received a LitheVape from the manufacturer for a review. After enough tests here my full review of this bad boy.

    First I like the conic design, that's a very enjoyable shape. Size is bigger than the Vaponic or the Vapcap but not so much. It comes with a cheap leather sleeve, a tool and a piece of tubing to connect it to a watertool.

    To load it you have to unscrew the metal tip taking care to not unscrew the bowl itself (yes you can remove the bowl for a deep cleaning!), after you can load the bowl (it is recommanded to fill it at 3/4max), habitually I fill it half way with coarse grounded flowers with a very slightly tamp.

    A single torch is enough to heat the load. You can pre-heat the metal tip a few seconds before to take your first hit. You need to put the flame close of the small hole in the tip, the idea is to draw the heat (and the flame) through the hole. It will take one or 2 hits to get visible vapor but after it is a cloud machine with the right drawing technique.

    It is easier to use with a bubbler since you can visualize the vapor and since it's quite harsh dry. When the unit is hot you can get pretty thick clouds in 5-6s hits. When you load it more than 1/2 you can get a sort of combustion taste even without any true combustion (something I still not experienced with the Lithe).Taste is pretty nice if not overloaded and if you use a goog lighter with a pure flame (if the flame is not perfect you'll get a bad tane taste).

    Here a pic of the Lithe and the NimbinVap (they are very close in function):
    [​IMG]
    And another one paired with one of my favourite watertool, look at that dense clouds and sorry for the dirty glass:
    [​IMG]

    Don't hesitate to ask me more...i'm sure I forgotten to speak about something.... all in all that vape is a very decent choice, simple but effective.
    Thanks for looking!

    edit: No stirs needed if you don't load more than 1/2 bowl.

    I couldn't agree more with everything you've said. This little thing can give some very nice and dense Vapor. I've had mine going on two weeks now also. There is a small learning curve but I find it is fairly similar to using my "Lily" and so far the only time I combusted was the first time trying it with water, I pushed it just a tad too far.
    I think you need to give a little more love to the leather sleeve. I found it a very useful tool when I'm on the go and need to remove a hot cap for a refill or empty. Although it is a little awkward to put a hot Lithe in the sleeve, once it's in the sleeve works very well to insulate the hot cap to prevent burning yourself.
    I think I'm gonna go use it now.:D

    Some great woods.
    The gamma, the light browns and the pale wood.
    some woods have knots or a swirl in a different tone.

    Not too sure if this has been mentioned before, i havent read the whole thread, but i removed the screen i received with the lithe and replaced it with my vivant alternate mesh pad, i used pliers to squeeze the sides til it fit, i only use a tiny bit if herb and get very little resistance. I was having an issue with the og screen getting caked up. The best part is now i have a great concentrate vape. I put a grain sized chunk in and got amazing taste and clouds. I dont think ive gotten bigger clouds using my torch and rig. Im still testing this out but havent ran into issues yet.

    Got swaps on one of these.

    Anyone tried a triple turbo flame with one of these or is that over kill?

    Any hints / tips?

    Thats probably going to taste awful since you have to inhale while using. You'll get a lot less direct flame.

    Probably also overkill I get hits quick.

    Received a Lithe in a trade and while it took a while to get the hang of it, it produces some large clouds.

    Nice minimalistic design.
