    Wow this is rather eye opening. Didn't know so many people disliked the Pax. I thoroughly enjoyed mine and I'm thoroughly enjoying the Pax 2.

    Worst vaporizer I've ever owned is the very first one I bought way back in 2011. The Vapir No2. An absolute piece of shit.

    I put the Pax OG as the worst tasting vape I ever used. But I recently got a Pax3 and I love it!
    I don’t dislike Pax. Just their original vape.

    I have never owned a Pax vaporizer. But the impression I've come to have based on my own research, and what I would consider to be the majority consensus of knowledgeable vapor enthusiasts I've read from here on FC, on r/vaporents over on Reddit, and other popular places like vaporasylum , is that the newer Pax models are ok, but they are not very efficient extractors compared to many other popular vaporizers, they suffer in the vapor-flavor department, and that they get rather stinky compared to other popular vaporizers that are advertised for discreteness.

    The worst vape I have ever purchased is the Sidekick from 7th floor. I love 7th floor so this isn't an anti 7th floor post, as the SSV is one of my favourite vapes of all time. I just found the Sidekick I received was so inefficient I had to stop using it as it was consuming so much flower. I was one of the early adopters so they may have made changes to improve this by now.

    The Grasshopper bc of it's unreliability over years. Otherwise if working it's a real best and the most stealthy on the go.
    Hope the new, reengeneered ones are more relliable.

    I hear you, but it's not much of an issue for me since it's not my daily driver.

    The original Pax took me about 20 minutes to clean it and the Pax 2 about 10. It does require cleaning every 6-8 ovens for optimal operation.

    I agree with everything stated, it definitely has its limitations. The main draw for me was the vapor production and size.

    Worst vaporizer in my experience was the Vapir Vapormatic. Bought it used, sorry i did, gave it to a friend who then re-gifted it to someone else.

    ..............in my collection, like the OP, I would have to nominate my Whispr2. However, unlike the OP I have no problem getting good vapor production..........it's just hot as hell on my lips. One thing about it though, during the prolonged power outages I suffer through more often than I'd like, it is KING. Always the last one standing. And through a water piece it is perfectly serviceable.
