    I find it to be effortless zero resistance and the easiest vaporizer to operate along with very consistent results........combined with outstanding build quality and a solid company behind it.
    The vapor can be harsh is about the only downside imo.

    Harsh because with bags you can inhale a lot of dry vapor at once or harsh because vapor is still hot?

    Is it possible to use/couple the mouthpiece of easy valve and a 14 or 18 female joint natively, without adapters? The whole idea to try bags was to get rid of glass but maybe I am wrong?

    How much full load is? 0,5 or more?

    Thank you

    Harsh due to dryness and volume never heat and I would guess roughly a half to a gram.......not sure but it appears to be about 14MM from looking at it.

    Depends on what you're looking for, though a bag will never match the cleanliness of glass IMO.

    It's the dryness of the vapor that makes it harsh for me. But now I use the Magma in conjunction with my 'cano and it makes a huge difference for me. It really smooths out the vapor and makes for nice cough-free hits. :2c:

    Well, I've laid down $800CDN to see if All I've learned from a little over a year of research and experimentation with My 'Plenty' pays off.
    I've got a great feeling that my Investment, hopefully cheap at the price, will be exactly what I want.

    To all those who are interested in Cannabis, Primarily for Health Reasons, please stay tuned!

    There are Many Opinions, and amazingly few Facts with reguard to the use of Cannabis!
    I myself see no Validity as to, how long a person has been a consumer of Marijuana or
    that they belong to the Vape of The Month Club?

    My Opinion is based on many resources, and an Open Mind rather than a Closed one due to 'Experience'.
    But Just an Opinion, non the less!

    That's a very close minded opinion! :lol:

    Funny how you toot around the Plenty thread posting as if your experience counts though :rofl:

    Can't wait to see your contributions here, I've only been using my Volcano since 2006 so I'm sure you could teach me a few things :wave:

    I did not try CANNABIS until 1970?
    It was free solo we just smoked joints.
    2012 when I tried vaporizer’s the FLAVOR blew me away!
    In EUROPE in the 90’s I saw people at a party using a bag for CANNABS?
    I learned to drink wine in Stead.?
    It’s on my bucket list to have a bag someday?

    Personally, I like the solid valve because the bowl is adjustable, I like a little more herb then the reducer allows and because it adjusts with the plunger you always have a "full load"

    I agree clean glass taste the best but right after first hit or first bowl, water inside bubbler become so stinky so fast I prefer smell from a 1 month old solo stem than from my half day old orbiter water

    @Stu magma looks interesting but same downside as above, i am trying to get rid of water in vaporpath

    Will report after some use

    I know exactly what you mean, its from partial combustion of unvaporizable plant material, It's why I press everything into rosin these days. I find those off putting water flavors pretty much go away once the plant material is filtered out from the resin.

    FWIW although not as rank as Flowerpot water, I do feel that the volcano bag absorbs toasty flavors too, if I overcook a load I can taste it until the next deep cleaning/bag change.

    Other than particulate build up in Solo stems, I agree that the "cleanliness retention" is pretty tolerable with those glass stems.

    What is the optimal temperature? Picked up a Digital after being convinced by @Baron23
    Currently using 395 and ending at 420? A bit harsh but i want full extraction
    Ataxian should definetely try a bag.. please do so

    That's a loaded Question!
    I'm Sure many here will know.
    Well at least their 'opinions' will be a guide.
    But, I really think you have to decide for Yourself?
    Depends what Your goal is?
    Somewhat different, for different strains too.
    Take a look at My Avatar, it seems to be a relatively accurate Guide.

    Try 191/192 Celsius. Besides max temperature, that’s the only one I select and the best for flavor.
    That’s the sweet spot.
    And all the time I select it I thank @Vitolo for sharing the knowledge.
    Just try it: balance of potency and flavor.

    I get Plenty of Vapour in even in the 280f--340f range.

    Terpenes seem to start around 160f, some strains even lower.

    But then, I take My time. :myday:
