    Title says it all. I don't have much experience with any aside from the Extreme-Q and I can say that I was not too impressed with the Extreme-Q's bags all that much.

    One of the requirements for a bag vaporizer IMO is a functional valve. Fingers don't count

    I didn't find that the Extreme-Q's Vapor was very enjoyable altogether (the balloon or the whip) and Yeah I didn't like putting my finger over the valve

    Extreme Q is good but I'd say volcano wins. On the extreme the deep wide basin on the extreme is too large for thick volume bags with efficiency. You can get a really decent bag by packing the elbow joint with the upper screen that fits into the cyclone bowl with about . 12 gram of material. That's 1/10th of a gram to fill the bowl. You'll get a good bag on fan 1 speed. If you set the fan too high it will give you too much air.

    With that said. I'd say that bags aren't worth it. Proper whip technique will always beat bags. Thc sticks to the bag and escapes consumption. The bags get gummed up with this resin and breath over time. It's a very confined space and I question the cleanliness of the bags after a few uses. The best vaporizer I've used is the solo. I can get about 13 thick cloud hits or about 18-20 mint hits off of point 15 gram. The taste is much better than both the extreme whip and the volcano bags. The pieces are easy to clean by putting the glass in boiling water or alcohol.

    Solo - 130 dollars
    Extreme q - 145 dollars
    Volcano - Twice price

    I was just kidding. No one has seen it do bags yet.

    Salutations TboneToker,

    Personally i don't get impressed with anything which will force an owner to ventilate electronics through a cannabic bowl... The Arizer table models happen to correspond to this description while the HerbalAire doesn't and yet this thread offers to vote for the Arizer but not the HerbalAire...

    Well, it seems i won't be voting and i find this somewhat regrettable.

    :peace:

    I think the best valve system is the Volcano. The Ion comes close to it and can be had for about half the price. The Herbalizer should be considered because it blows bags and is in the price range. At least with the Herbalizer you get to do whip as well. Most people who move from bags to whips or glass don't go back. If money were no object and I was hell bent on only using bags I would get Volcano, but only under those circumstances.

    You'll have to vote for "Other" like the rest of us that prefer the HerbalAire over the listed options. ;)

    I realize that whips are great guys. I have an Aromed for that purpose. I am just looking for a balloon type vape as well for when I feel like using a bag as opposed to a whip. I don't care about the price, I just want the best, most easy to use overall balloon vape

    Herbalaire is as much a bag vape as it is a whip vape or a direct draw vape, bubbler vape, etc...
    A big part of its beauty is in it's versatility and simplicity; http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/herbalaire.276/page-61#post-566017
    No other "balloon type vape" on the market offers the simplicity of optimal extraction with no grinding, stirring, or technique.

    $140 stock HerbalAire? You'll need to use your fingertip until pressure in the bag equalizes.
    If you're willing to upgrade stock experience there are multiple options, depending on how much you want to spend.
    If you are broke but hate using your fingertip you can use a simple silicone cap overtop in between hits.
    If price is no object then Herbalizer "SqueezeValve" bags should fit the 18mm taper on the TonG adapter HA offers.
    There are other options, but those are the two ends of the price/convenience spectrum that i've found.

    Indeed it does; pure vapor though. It was a single unground piece at high temperature.
    The HerbalAire was designed to extract everything short of combustion regardless of amount.
    Uniform, dark chocolate depleted ABV every time with 0 risk of ever accidentally combusting.

    For me not having a good valve system, ala volcano or zephyr, would be a deal breaker for a bag filling vaporizer, but maybe I'm just picky.

    hoptimum I thought that before I used the HA bags but found that once I took my first hit very little vapor is lost then again I fill a bag and suck it down in a few minutes.
