Wow, what an old thread lol Back about 10 years ago in college, I rented a house with a bunch of cool dudes (I was always the outcast because I was the responsible guy working 9-5 and going to school after work, and I never worked weekends). Anyway at one point they had an EZ Vape knockoff on the table, I had no clue wtf it was at the time. Later they explained what it was, but weren't using it so I never got a chance to use it with them. Fast forward about 3 years, I was out on my own, bought a house and decided to splurge on a "vaporizer" to see what all the hype was about (this is around 2008). So I spent $100 on a knockoff EZ Vape with a digital readout from my LHS. I certainly over paid for it, and it was a chinese knockoff, but whatever, it had a cool blue light on the heat port and had a digital temp dial, what could be better! Yeah, that was complete shit. I had no clue what I was doing with it, barely got any vapor (I got a little bit of taste, but nothing fantastic). The nasty whips also didn't help with the taste. So that vape went into the closet for the rest of it's life. Fast forward again about 5 more years and I'm out to lunch with an old friend, and he pulls out the Pax! Yeah that blew my mind. Unfortunately it was mostly done by the time he let me try it after lunch, and I didn't taste much. But that Pax grabbed my attention - portable fucking herb vapes? Get the fuck out of here. So off began my quest for my own portable vaporizer. Ultimately my first real vaporizer was the Davinci Ascent. I was pretty much smitten with vaporizing from that first puff at 350F with the Ascent. Didn't even try combusting again for two weeks after the Ascent arrived, at which point it was too late, my body had already detoxed from combustion!
