What vape is the best compliment to an Underdog?

    Hey guys! I was just wondering if anybody had any insight as to what a good compliment to my UD would be. The main thing about the UD that makes me want an extra vape is the fact that is can be a PITA to use with larger groups of people (4+). Portability is not a must, as I live in an illegal state and I only vape at home, however it would be nice if it was easy to transport to a friend's house or something. Looking for something <$300. I was thinking maybe the HydroBrick Maxx would be good, but I want to hear what y'all have to say. Thanks!

    Blemmed Da Buddha with extra whips is my group solution. It is like an airport with planes waiting to land as folks await their turn at the spout.

    Andreaerdna If God is the answer, then the question is wrong

    I think a butane vape like the maxx could be an interesting backup other than a easier group vape (in case of black out, butane vapes are my best choice)

    That being said I did not own it, I have his little brother SB junior and it definetly can handle multiple session one after the other

    It has a little learning curve though, so maybe not the best for noob?

    I think best group vaporizer to go with an underdog is an Arizer solo or air. I'd go with the air and extra batteries to keep the form factor small. The solo/air are great for 1-3 people. I know you said portability isn't an issue, but with several people it's a lot easier to pass a vape without a cord.

    I use an underdog at home, an air with friends, and a TI vapcap when I'm out and about alone.

    Keep in mind there is a learning curve with the Buddha with other people not used to it.

    If one friend slighty coughs, or laughs, or breathes into the muuthpiece, the herb blows onto the ceramic rod and combusts and you have to end the session and break everything down to clean...

    I second a Sticky Brick. Probably OG or HydroMaxx is what I'd go for, in your situation.

    The thing is, there's a learning curve to pretty much every vape that isn't a session-style. Yes, butane vapes have a different learning curve than electronic ones etc, but it's really not hard as long as you use your brain/senses as you go.

    Don't let dumb people use your expensive and prone to breaking/other accidental and easily avoidable things.

    I saw someone mention that a friend torched the side of their brick here once. How that's even possible, I'm not sure. Dude must have had terrible vision and not wearing his glasses or something?

    Maybe this is why I don't hang out with people though. In addition to risks that they make me susceptible to due to their inability to think, you also deal with the lovely people who tell you "I don't feel anything" or "it's not working."

    ie: they're trying to make their problem your problem because they don't comprehend how things work lol.

    I found the learning curve with the SBJ took a few bowls and while my technique isn't 100% perfect, I still know how to "read" the vapor, taste and temp and know when to pull the flame away, up your draw speed, let off the carb or just turn the flame off...

    Sorry this got long winded but I think tailoring what YOU are going to buy, just so your friends can use it easier is lame (but I applaud you for being considerate of your friends)

    The dbv "learning curve" is minimal
