I got started last night with one session. I did a one session burn off for dorkus and saw no mystery vapors and got very little smell. it smelled a little bit like a toaster oven when first turned on. i did some ghost pulls and there was a little bit of new vape taste, but nothing near what I hear from other users with different new vapes...although this unit may not have gone through the same manufacturing process as the mass produced ones will. The glass seems nice, but I am not a glass pro by any means...i really don't know what to look for as far as welds, etc. It's a little taller, thinnner and lighter than my vxl ht. mine has the button problem as well, but that has been fixed. my first impression is that it is a pax in a solo body. you have to hit it with a technique similar to the pax and mflb. i didn't get technical about what i put in it, so i don't know how much there was, but I would put it at about 1-2 pd stem's worth to fill the little basket without tamping it. started at 2 and ended at the highest setting of 5. got medium thickness vapor hits throughout and felt pretty good. The abv was fully spent and was a coffee brown color. when i opened it up to empty the basket there was a little vapor coming off, confirming that this is a conduction based vape. the water attachment would make this popular with users like jamband, who like to vaporbong with the pax. I'm not gonna put it in my Ion until I get the hit style down, as I didn't really enjoy putting the mflb with my Ion.
