    Thanks Mark that is incredible news! The 2 piece sounds amazing! Perhaps a full boro 2 piece design would be way more cost effective, but it would be nice to have at least the option to upgrade to something like that, and even the quartz for $$$, if it's not completely astronomical would be appreciated by the connoisseurs that are Vriptech fam!

    I'm always just so excited and intrigued by anything new you guys bring to the table! :rockon:

    I do like the suggestion Mark has made about the possibility of glass reducers for the new bowls.

    Just finished cleaning all my glass and decided to bust out the VHW!
    Apparently i own a model from Stonehenge and i LOVE IT!!

    Loaded up a small bowl and after the first hit, i was wondering why i use any other vaporizer...
    The flavor is out of this world and the clouds rival way more expensive vapes!

    So simple and effective!

    OMG!!! Everyone who owns a wand needs to try this!

    Take your WT of choice and empty it!
    Now clean it quick and shake excess water out.
    Turn it down a touch...
    Load a bowl and hit it DRY!

    Flavor is even better and it hits way harder!

    EDIT:
    Just emptied my RooR tube, which is an act of war in itself, and hit the VHW dry!
    Vapor is denser and comes on faster, no primer needed.
    Taste is superb and hits like a train.
    Think it will need it's own Wt though... Can't have my RooR empty, it's just not right!

    Hey @ShadowVape it's been a few months, too many crickets chirping in this thread, any new updates? Low temp concentrate bowl? 2 piece GonG cover? We need something to keep fuelling the stoke on! :tup:

    "inhaling any metal ions"

    I was having a conversation with someone who owns a VHW3 and he was saying you are inhaling metal ions on pretty much all other vaporizers. I believe he was talking about aluminum ceramics and such but whatever metal ions are, it shouldn't be a problem with stainless steel, right?

    You're talking about some crazy deep shit that I have a hard time understanding. But when Mark explained it to me he was talking about ionic polarity, not necessarily ions getting loose. Something about the polarity in glass he says makes the vapor smoother. I'm probably fucking this up...it's been a few years!

    Thanks Sticks, I wanted to chime in earlier, but all I could offer was "duh...polarity?" :hmm:. That is the crucial word that Mark always emphasises. Specifically, he is firmly adamant (and I ain't calling him no liar, nor a fool), that the all glass air/vapor path has a NEUTRAL polarity, whereas other substances create a charged polarity that is more irritating to the tracheobronchial(?) tree(?)

    And furthermore that this neutral polarity affects the extraction process in a positive way.

    Above is a link to their website page explaining the physics of some of it all.
    I still have never tried a true all glass vapor path to see if it does alter my allergic sensitivities but I surely will. I have the Herborizer Xl, but that doesnt qualify with either ceramic, steel or both.

    Somehow while spending 7 hours waiting for my wife's medical appointment to end, in another city, i stumbled onto this thread again! I knew i had to break out the VRIP for a session!
    also broke out an old WT from storage! BONUS!!!

    VRIP was wonderful to use again although i think the New Vape Flower Pot has changed my inhaling technique considerably!
    No more burnt spots using a faster inhale, had to up the temp a bit but still awesome flavor!

    Glad to have this vape to really chew the herb you are vaping!
