    That is exquisite! Such stunning grain. I'm very happy with the Bubinga I have ordered, but the one you have there is on another level!

    Congratulations, you're going to love breaking that one in!

    Hi y'all, I have been having some cleaning problems with my inhalater ( used Somme LL with some vg and bunked it up somewhat) so I have been using my log for the past few nights.
    Now here's the thing, I filled one of the inhalater capsules and used it with my WW log and got some reasonable clouds in a short session ( about 7 tokes). The unit had been on for about 15 minutes.
    When I checked the abv it was still very green to my surprise . Tried the same thing again tonight with the same leftover leaf same capsule and after one session it was still as green as ever.

    Can someone explain why the log does not turn the abv brown immediately like other vapes. Why is it more efficient compared to some of the portables that also use convection?

    After 15minutes, the WW is hot. After 30min, it is hotter.

    I don't understand how your herb does not turn at least yellow though... if i take a big and long draw, it is guaranteed it will be light yellow by the end of the first hit.
    It is more difficult to turn dark brown though, i don't know what temperature is the air when it goes through the bowl but i can tell you my Solo will leave it darker although i can't extract anymore of my WW abv when i use that in the Solo, and the Solo reaches above 200C.

    do you fill the bowl to the top?

    the postman just brought my bubinga special.
    I am meant to go into town and do things with a straight head but couldn't resist unwrapping and trying it out. got to be quick, but a few things:
    Even thought everyone says it, I am very surprised how small it is. this things tiny! looks great, i just didn't realise how much smaller than the PD these are.
    much better ventilation than the PD i've been using, thought the stems I had weren't great for that either.
    Really nice flavour (i haven't tried the silicone tubes, doubt I will).
    I'm very impressed and already in love with this thing, so thanks Cookie!
    and it's a hitter, I kind of wish I had resisted temptation as I now have to hitch to town and act like I'm alive, I only put in a tiny bit but it took it's toll!

    Things didn't go according to plan… I packed another bowl and shortly after, decided sleep was a good idea.:zzz:

    I am really impressed with this vapouriser though, really helps you get the most our of your herbs. I like little invisible puffs, so as not to waste vapour, and a first it was difficult for me to not get it too thick and cloudy. You quickly get used to it though, and it's easy to get any kind of vapour you want.
    The craftsmanship is superb, and this thing looks much nicer than in the pictures. I don't have a camera right now or I'd take some photos with nice lighting, I will one day. I love the grain on this one, and it looks lovely and ornamental on top of my Orange amp.
    Still can't get over how tiny it is. the afromosia stem suits it well, good choice.

    anyway, a very happy purchase, and definitely an upgrade from the PD I was using. Recommended to anyone wanting a great home vape, and easily better than what else you'll get for that money!
    Definitely and object of love.
    Anyway, now that I've slept off my earlier hit, time for a second testing and some stoned cooking!
    :whoa:

    Hello all and Happy New Year. I hope everyone made much merry and happiness over the holidays and will take those good vibes into the next year.

    A big thanks to Bleak and his stunning photo's - top class :tup: and also to all you other contributors.

    So my designs for an insulated Wychwood are coming along. After several different designs I think I have settled on one that allows for full wood protection, air-path isolation and relative ease of manufacture. I'm waiting on a few parts and as soon as I have a working prototype I'll post some pics and open the floor for discussion.

    Till then happy vaping all :D

    Really great to hear Kian, the WW is so small, I cant get over that either, it performs really well and has got to be a big upgrade to the PD.

    Looking forward to your new innovations on the insulated unit coming soon cookie, I hope to get one of those in my hands soon also bro! Wish you much luck with it and am anxious to see what you have done!

    Some weeks ago I was looking for another vape, and vorrange talked to me about this one. I bought a water pipe for my Volcano and my Solo but now I´ve been reading this thread and I am very interested in one of these little log vapes. I live in Spain so this one is my first choice but I have questions:

    ¿Has it draw restriction?

    ¿Are there Fuckcombustion discounts?

    ¿Should I wait for the new model of WW to come?

    Sounds interesting. What does it prevent? Do the other log vapes have this?

    Old style log vapes had an enclosed air pathway that held the heater core, it was metal to wood with no insulation between the two, they would generate alota heat and cause the inside to char and deteriorate. After a while the internals would become loose and rattle and may even come out. Newer log vapes are mostly using a different air pathway that does require insulation. The CRZ has an all enclosed air pathway but has a layer of ceramic fiber that insulated the core and shielded the heat from the inside of the wood. This enabled the use of the CRZ for a lifetime and then some. Not sure how the new WW will work but am excited to have one when all is done!

    Thanks Ed now I make my mind. If I got one of those old models, which would it´s life expectancy be? I mean before it gets loose. Does it depend on the wood type?

    Not sure about life expectancy, the wood does matter though, the softer the wood the shorter the lifespan. Some folks are still using there older models, have done some mods to tighten the internals up.

    Congrats man! I think you'll love the WW, I'm very impressed with mine. Big clouds, very free air flow, zero learning curve for sharing with friends, high efficiency.. It's all gravy.

    CDS summed it up for me. I think you already got some glass to go with it, but if you didn't you should. Not mandatory but a welcome addition, :)
