    Hi,
    I did search but cannot find a couple specs:

    1. what's the ID and OD for MFLB water whip hose?

    2. for a bigger hose, someone really liked the Vapor Bros Class IV medical grade hose BUT
    page one here lists it as ID of 5/8". Can that be??
    I have SSV hose at 3/8" ID and that seems REALLY big. 5/8" is like garden hose size...???
    ID and OD for Vapor Bros hose?

    From Vaporpedia (and page 1 of this thread) the VB tubing is 1/4 inch ID and 3/8 inch OD, I believe the MFLB silicone is the same at least I know the ID is 1/4 inch like the VB tubing.

    None of the tubing listed is 5/8 inch ID but 5/16 which is half the size of 5/8 inch.

    It's confusing as VaporWarehouse sells Vapor Bros tubing and their site says:
    I think another vendor I found also listed is as 5/8" ID which is huge........

    OEM Clear Vaporbrothers® Replacement Hose
    Approx. 3' clear replacement hose for any Vaporbrothers Vaporizer Whip. This Made from a Class IV medical grade, virgin compound of vinyl. This BPA free, DEHP free tube is designed especially for Vaporbrothers.

    You use a vaporizer for your health, don't take chances on low grade plastics or sub par vapor whips. Vaporbrothers whips and hoses use only medical grade materials.

    Inner hole diameter - 5/8"

    Yeah Like you said 5/8 ID seems huge for a whip. For sure someone in the vapor bros thread would know what size they offer now if you ask over there.

    Has anyone added a whip extension to the plenty? I'm hoping to get one that I can connect to my bubbler. The bubbler is really small (smaller than my hand), so I was thinking that I'd be able to connect a more narrow whip tube into my bowl so I could draw from the bubbler.

    I'm looking for roughly 12 feet of high quality whip tubing for my Vapir Rise 2 (3/16" ID x 5/16" OD) but i'm not quite sure what to get. What are everyone's thoughts on Tygon SPT 3350 Sanitary Silicone Tubing from www.usplastic.com? Has anyone used it recently? Think it's safe? Have any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    Edit: NVM. It looks like you have to buy at least 20' from that website :/ This looks promising though (?)

    I'm not familiar with the Vapir, but for the Arizer Q and other whip vapes, many here buy silicone tubing from Amazon. The important thing of course is that it be silicone and food/medical grade. Look for NSF 51, the standard. Heat tolerance is usually 500F. Here's a link to what I buy, except in your diameters. They have it in 10ft and 25ft lengths, it usually runs approx $1 a foot. (The U.S. Plastics tubing is fine, but typically a lot more expensive.)

    Awesome , thanks. However now I am going to have to change out all my whips as I have a bunch of odd sized and stiff ones from Home Depot. Anyone know what type of tubing to avoid that could be hazardous ?

    I think that, as stated above, you should be concerned with heat rating of the tubing. Listing what "not to use" would be a pretty big list!
    'Medical grade' and 'food grade' are always nice to see on product description, too. @oldiebutgoodie is giving some good advice just a couple of posts up from here!

    Based on the perusing I did, looks like it would work.

    I wonder though, do the Extreme Q utilize same size tubing as the Cloud EVO whip kits? I've been trying to find the sizing for that as its the only whip vape I have. I think I may take the plunge and get something the size of yours.

    I suggest two items:
    1. @Ratchett on this site runs Delta 3D Studios. He makes a silicone adapter (Song)which works for connecting a hydratube and just happens to work well for attaching a whip firmly to Herbie, which can then connect to a bubbler With it a whip is much more secure.

    [​IMG]

    So here's one glass setup, from ratchett Song directly to hydratube:
    [​IMG]

    If you like a bubbler better, I like the Song + the MFLB water hip (Magic Flight Launch Box).
    It consists of the whip + a 14 mm male glass end that fits into a bubbler (and the glass also serves as a handy mouthpiece if you want a direct whip hit) + a nice wooden piece that serves as a hand hold.
    Picture shows MFLB water whip connected to my miniVAP but you can see how it connects:
    MFLB piece is approx $30 I think??
    [​IMG]
    So, it depends on if you want hydratube style glass or bubbler style glass...

    If you want it all together, instead of piecing together your own version:

    http://www.vapornation.com/magic-flight-water-filtration-whip.html
    20% off for another day with code : HEART

    For $79 you get 2 of the complete whips/14 mm glass tip and a small water piece.
    It is very small but some here have used it and like it. Might be a good starter setup?

    Is this whip just as "safe" as the whip that comes with the Herbalizer?

    Can it handle the heat from the halogen bulb?

    It's made to work with the MFLB vaporizer, made for vaporizing so it should be safe.
    Site doesn't say what material it is made from but....supposed to be safe.
    --searching MFLB site, it says whips are silicone material, considered one of the safest for high temps

    The MFLB Water Whip is too narrow to snap in directly into the Herbie chamber so needs an adapter.
    The best connection is with the @Ratchett Herbie V2 Song. Solid connection and the MFLB can connect to a 14 mm bubbler (pictured below) OR the MFLB whip can be used as a direct draw whip with a nice wooden handhold and the 14 mm male glass end works very well as a mouthpiece.

    There are cheaper ways to connect but this combo is the most solid and versatile.
    Note that the Ratchett Song is also a great connector for a hydratube----a GREAT combo.

    Thank you this is the exact setup i want.

    I seen a bubbler just like that on dhgate but it has a 18 mm joint size.

    Do you have a link where i can get a bubbler like the one in your pic with a 14mm?

    Hi,
    that bubbler is an 18 mm female joint as many are.
    It has an adapter to make it a 14 mm female joint.

    You need a 18 mm male to 14 mm female glass adapter.
    Do you have a local headshop?
    Or search the cheap Chinese glass sellers online

    So I've been thinking about ways to help collect the resin. What about some sort of "trap" at one end of the tube?

    Kind of like a moisture trap on a compressed air tools setup in the garage, to keep water out of the lines, but if there was a trap that wouldn't actually trap the vapor, just collect a majority of the thick resin.

    Anyone have any ideas or have tried anything? I assume a piece of glass that maybe has some loops in it or something might collect the resin, rather than having it all inside the entire length of tube.
