    My choice is the Classic, for just that reason, it sweeps through an 18 degree range instead of staying steady at one temperature like the digi, Similar to My Plenty. I believe that it was designed that way on purpose, and that the digi was introduced to appease the modern masses.

    Thanks Baron23, Yes, the Real McCoy!

    So, I'm ready to take the Plunge on the Volcano, can I ask why You chose the 'digii?
    I usually go for the Best, when i'm buying something important, but, for the reason above
    and the fact that there's less to go wrong, I'm leaning towards the 'classic'?
    If anyone can give Me reason to Spend a little more, Please Step Up. I will also buy the reducer
    due to the fact that I only micro-dose maybe 0.1-0.2., I use one with the Plenty.
    I'm coming from the Plenty, which I still think may be the Best Vape on the market
    for Medicinal use, though I don't have experience with others.
    Can anyone who has both Please let Me know what to expect as to
    differences or similarities between the two?
    Anyone have an opinion as to a Vape that beats out the Volcano?
    Speed and getting Stoned have no relevance to ME
    My Only concern is extracting the most from the Flower.

    The downside of the digit is the auto-shutoff IMO but the temp precision and control is nice. I haven’t used a classic.

    Extracting the most what? Do you only use CBD rich hemp flowers? How can you expect to extract everything without getting stoned? Seems unreasonable, but I've only been using a Volcano since 2006.

    At the time, I favored being able to dial in a specific temp....after a few years of looking into this I have concluded that it really doesn't work that way....IMO, you can only rely on the generality of lower temp more heady and higher more sedative but even there I'm so sure.

    What I do NOT like about the Digit is the frakin auto-shut off. If I had to do it again, I would probably get a classic.

    Now, as I have said, anymore I put my Digit to 446 and pull really thick bags....works for me.

    I chose the Classic because it doesn't have the cut off switch. Love just being able to fill a bag at will and the four foot bag makes for a nice session
    Been wanting to bring my Volcano out and about to work and friends places and found a nice bag for $12 at Harbour Freight. Has the nice triangular shape already and fits all that's needed. isn't a pic apart foam protected one, but I don't really need all that.

    Plumber's tool bag? I see a lot of guys use that type of bag as a range bag at the gun club.

    Don't know if you guys know or care, but for new people considering, the Newer Volcanos,
    both models I guess, come with new 'Easy Valve starter kit' which allows the use of both types
    of bags, S&B singles, and bigger oven bags etc.. i think they are discontinuing the 'Solid 'valve?
    Been available this way for a while.
    Just a little update!

    Anyone heard of a portable battery powered Volcano?

    :science: Thats me, making housecalls...Take some both of these and call me in the morning.
    I can see toting a rod to the range in this bag @Baron23
    Would be a plumbers small bag cause they have some huge wrenches...so I've heard.

    Have a classic on my way

    Very excited to see if bags are something I like

    Have a chamber reduction and some capsules on my order too, is there something else I should consider buying?

    Me too!
    Should be here by Tuesday, 'reducer' also.
    I guess You have the capsule use in mind, but,
    in the future, maybe 'small' drip pads, if you like to micro dose?

    The volcano is not really a micro dose type unit..........works best with a full load.

    Nope.

    I always wanted to try a smaller chamber to be more efficient with consumption. However, I just got the reducer a week ago and have yet to try it.

    :rolleyes:

    You phrase things in the douchiest ways.
    You could have asked if has used the reducer, or what made him come to his conclusion.
    I pretty much agree with him, and I have the reducer and dosing caps.

    Agreed.

    In my experience the volcano needs a whole joint worth of ground to really work well.

    Never had a bag?
    What is it like?
    In EUROPE it was their thing?

    The WINE was so amazing I switched for a while?

    @LesPlenty influenced me to try a PLENTY which worked out in positive way!
    @Vitolo made it happen.

    But hey, one day I want to try a bag!
