    Hi all! Registered here a year ago when I started looking into vaping after about 40 years of combustion!
    First I want to say thanks to the community here for all the valuable information I found here during my year of lurking!

    A short background on myself:
    I'm a mechanical/electrical/electronics technician, I've worked in various related fields my whole life.
    I like to make/build/design/mod/upgrade/repair things!
    I also love to cook, especially smoker/BBQ stuff.
    I love motorcycles, the outdoors and Cherry Soda!
    I also play guitar and sing!

    My vaping experiance:
    I consider myself a seasoned concentrate vaper and have a small collection of various wax/oil devices, and a recycler glass rig. For electronic wax devices my preferred coils are Ceramic Donut and/or Miracle B. Dry herb vaping is a different story though...

    My somewhat limited odyssey through herb vapes has recently been kicked into high gear! Trying to find the ultimate herb vape that will completely end my smoking!

    I started out with the Divine Tribe GEN 2 DC on a Pico 75w ... I wasn't overly impressed with it however it was a good gateway into herb vapes. Next was a Tera v2, it had good vapor but went back because I felt the airflow was way too restrictive.

    The Tera got replaced with a Solo 2 which I currently have. I like the Solo 2 it's well built and a great vape but I can't say I totally love it. My friend recently got a Mighty and from my limited use of it I feel it has somewhat better vapor than the Solo 2 (cooler and better flavor) although the Solo is real close and definitely has some other advantages.

    After experiencing the mighty I think I'd like to try and upgrade again, and since the Mighty is a bit over budget I'm considering either a Crafty or an HR Fierce, and finally posting here now to get some advice on which direction to go. Could someone advise if I should start a new thread for that, or post in both threads (Crafty and Fierce)?

    Thanks arb for showing me a brand I didn't even know existed! Very interesting stuff... however I'm currently only considering cordless battery powered devices, but I'll definitely keep that in mind if someday I decide to go the corded route.

    Will do, thanks for the advise!

    Thanks Madri-Gal!

    I ended up just doing a reply in the healthy-rips-fierce thread, since that's the model that seems to be at the top of my list right now.

    Been smoking/eating/ dabbing/vaping cannabis for 26 years...most of those years from the moment I get up till I go to bed, but unfortunately I live in the UK and due to my job and drug driving laws I just vape in the evenings now.

    I'm hoping I can give good advice to people on here as well as receive some..

    Sup guys, new to the forum.
    Long time smoker, been using ecigs for several years and stopped cigs (2x pack a day) and now I want to switch to vaping for bud as well.
    I bought an xmax v2 pro, came with the glass mouthpiece, a grinder and a tightvac for 75 shipped. Kind of want a VapCap also seeing the reviews, it begins...
    Anyone here fly fpv drones by chance?

    Hello FC!

    I've been over at VL for the last year or so and been a lurker here for nearly as long. Since there's a larger audience here I finally wanted to start participating as an active contributor.

    Mid-30's in the San Diego, CA area, I've been a combustion dabbler and occasional edible or cartridge user for 10-15 years. I started medicating consistently a few years back for a variety of health reasons, so wanted to dive into vaping instead of combusting.

    My first "vape" was the G-Pen Elite, and that almost turned me off entirely; that POS deserves to go on the "worst of" list. Subsequently I've had the OG Sticky Brick, Mighty, Zephyr Ion, EVO, and soon to be G43. I've used a bunch of others, so the VapCap and MV-1 are on my acquisition list this year. Flavor, functionality, and design seem to be the factors that are most important to me. I've also never used glass for vaping (only the C word), and never owned my own. I've got a Mobius stereo matrix knock off from dhgate on the way, so I'm excited to try that.

    In my personal life I do a ton of stuff; mountain/road biking, music, books, and LOTS of gaming. Music I'd say I'm firmly in the prog metal camp :rockon:, but have a wide variety of tastes for most everything aside from pop and country. Gaming... everything! I'm extremely passionate about Euro-strategy board games, but my group fell apart. If you're in the San Diego area and want to sync up, let me know! I also play an absurd number of video games. Hit me up under this same handle on Steam or PSN.

    Professionally, I've got a wide and storied background. Originally an EMT who moved here to be a firefighter, I blew my shoulder out and had to pivot or face a life of recurring surgeries. As devastating as that was, I transitioned over to IT work with some success. I've done that for 10+ years and recently transitioned to Project Management which I've found I've got a knack for over the years. Unfortunately, I was laid off a few months back and am still searching for the right opportunity in the area. If any of you have read this and are thinking "hey, this dude sounds awesome and I've got the perfect opportunity", don't hesitate to reach out :p.

    Also unfortunately, despite CA finally being "legal", I'm on a self imposed tolerance break in case a new employer decides to drug test. Since it's still federally illegal, I'd hate to lose out on an opportunity. This means I'm not medicating for pain or sleep issues, so both of those have returned in full force and I'm stuck in the middle. I'm not big on standard medical pills and the like, so I've been relying on biofreeze and chamomile tea. If anyone has thoughts about alternative legal vape-able materials that might help, let me know.

    Anyway, that's my story (and I'm sticking to it!). Glad to be here as an active member!

    -Moth

    PS. A lot of folks have asked about my handle. It's a reference to a bizarre old local band from the Bay Area (where I'm from) called Nuclear Rabbit. Their entire persona was based around fucking with their audience. Some of their stuff is up on YouTube, so feel free to investigate, but don't say I didn't warn you. A special favorite is a wonderful ballad about The Hobbit titled "The Pimp, The Bitch, and The Magic Beans." Cheers! :rofl:

    Hey FC,

    I've been lurking a long while and finally made an account and wanted to say hello and start posting.

    I'm 33 years old and from the UK. I've been dipping in and out vaping since first buying a Vapir Oxygen Mini when they came out a good few years back now. Since I've owned various devices, both electric and butane powered.

    In the last year or so I've started dabbing. And since I've finally gotten really close to being combustion free. This has been a goal for a number of years. I know exactly why I've been struggling to this point and it's simply the ritual. I've been a bong smoker since the early 2000s and that's a lot of muscle memory and habit to break.

    Since owning a peak, and it being so easy to dab anywhere without a torch I'm getting so close and really excited and think I've found the last piece of the puzzle now the ember looks the perfect solution for me for those times I'm using flower in a bong. Same muscle memory, process & ease as smoking, seems perfect for me.

    Aside from that I really enjoy the other devices I currently own. Miqro and plus are perfect out and about devices for me, and I love a vapcap ortho I'm more enjoying that on glass pieces and really would love a heater. And I'm still in love with my peak atm.

    As well as an ember I'm currently strongly considering a portside mini and getting a couple of short direct vapcap to glass fitments made up I think the addition of these items would really complete my vapcap experience.

    Anyway I'm more hear to read and learn than waffle on about my self. So cheers for having me and can't wait to get stuck in.

    :peace:

    Well, being mesmerized by butane vapes can only mean that you like your vapor to be hard-hitting akin to smoking a jay. :spliff:

    Hey y’all from deep in the Heart of Dixie!!

    The decade of the 70’s was one continuous high for me (luvvved that Colombian Gold) but employment with Uncle Sugar demanded abstinence so the ride came to an end.

    Now in my senior years (you’d have to look in the first half of last century to find my DOB), I rediscovered cannabis about 4 years ago as an alternative treatment for symptoms associated with PTSD and aches and pains from a life of hard work and even harder play.

    Medication through a variety of edibles, tinctures and infused oils have served me well. Unfortunately, a recent onset of a relatively rare digestive disorder, mesenteric panniculitis, has rendered oral assimilation of cannabis ineffective.

    So here I be at your doorsteps in hopes of discovering a new medication delivery system to sate my needs. My first hurdle is going to be the decision on what dry herb device to use. The options are immense and a bit intimidating for an FNG but drawing from the wealth of experience here, I’m confident of finding the proper one for my needs.

    Hello Everyone,

    I have been vaping for several years now and I have heard about FC in the past but I am just now getting around to creating an account here.

    A little about my vaping experiences:

    I have suffered from asthma all of my life to some degree. I was about to stop smoking pot when one day I found the vape scene. Thank god I found it when I did because my Silver Surfer Vape from 7th Floor has saved me. Now I have no ill effects with my respiratory system when I use marijuana. YEAH!!!

    Really though, I am a firm believer in vaping flower, so much so that when I learned that my step-son was smoking MJ I immediately told him that he was a dummy if he didn't get him a vape. He is the proud owner of a DBV.

    Anyway, I am glad to be a part of this community and look forward to conversating with you guys in the future.

    G’day, long time vaporist and long time lurker residing in Australia. Hoping to add my to cents to the discussion having owned an almost embarrassingly large number of vapes.... current daily drivers; Fury 2, Solo 2 and The Firewood 5.

    Consider myself a bit of an early adopter when it comes to vaporizers, or it could be that I’m simply suffering from an incurable case of VAS!!!

    Cheers :leaf:
