    Still havent gotten a shipping confirmation,but i've been told i would get one soon.
    I asked them if they plan to release ceramic donuts for XL (larger ceramic donut),cause i also have concern about taste from coils from experience with other attys , the rep said he will forward my suggestion to the engineers.

    Maybe he has added some extra terps to compensate on the flavor .. or maybe just his stuff is so good that it would taste awesome in any vape :D..

    Just used my cheapest shatter that i'm trying to get rid of because i'm only sticking with rosin from here on out and I wouldn't waste that gold in the yocan.

    I think it has to do with 2 things - operator error and size of load. I was loading it full to the point where at the end where you get that foul taste you're talking about (taking it too far IMO) there would be splattered shatter all on the walls and even lid. Haven't those coils fully covered should not give you bad coil taste whatsoever. If so you may be combusting or something?

    People are mentioning BIG hits but bad flavour. When I experience flavour country with the XL it's not with BIG hits, it's actually with smaller hits.... super tasty....just like concentrates should be.

    If you are only putting teeny miniscule drops on one of the coils or whatever what do you expect for flavour? This is the Yocan XL - yes the bowl is huge because it's meant for BIG amounts of material IMO.

    It's an amazing product for what it is, but it's still super wasteful IMO. They are a bargain for the price undeniably IMO, and especially for the price of FREE which i'm pretty sure we all paid.

    Thanks again Yocan...it's been a fun experience and i've learned much. I'd definitely recommend your product to someone that has a large amount of concentrate and doesn't mind either wasting or reclaiming.

    I got to agree biohacker. Foul taste is usually going to happen with any pen if you overload it. I have Yocan Xl and a few other pens and it is best for flavor to stick with small doses . The concentrate will sit and pool when loading to much. I have a source orb xxl that is meant to hold around 1g of concentrate with quad coils also (the chamber is much larger than the yocan xl), when i 1st got it i loaded around 1g and unfortunately while its awesome you can load that much for on the go you will get that nasty taste after a few hits as whatever is burning is mixing with the rest of everything creating that flavor. I think the only wax pen out that really solves this is the Hercules but it has its ups and downs also.

    actually what I was trying to explain (sorry under newvape influence at the moment lol), was that if there isn't enough material you can get that electric abv coil taste, but if there is sufficient material it's less likely to happen. If you load it as intended (.2g?) it's awesome...flavour country all the way IME. But if you don't put enough in, and it pools a bit and coils are obviously exposed, you're going to get bad performance (and taste).

    Hey you guys,we got your feedback,for the Big Hits you metioned,here are some suggestions.
    1. load more wax
    2. don't draw too deeply

    Big hits don't seem to be the issue here..... it's coughing with the big hits, and what do those people expect? They are BIG hits! Probably way too much lung irritating heat, or too much vapour...both operator error IMO.

    :rofl:This is the solution to great flavour, however wax is super expensive. Good thing the pen is cheap!

    This exactly 100%. With the ability of wide open airflow, it's easy to get too much of a big hit. And this is where the learning curve comes in like many vapes. Once you master the device, you are in control.

    Appreciate your presence here @Yocantech !

    Got the XL about 2 weeks ago from Lilian Thanks Lilian for letting me try this out :)

    A little thicker than the Evolve plusI I like that the storage screws on.
    You could also leave the top the storage off and screw right on to the device although theres no silicone on the bottom of battery.
    I used shatter and a more wax crumble both worked well.

    I agree on this thing being a hard hitter
    Definitely agree on the short press of the button
    Anything more and it gets to hot for my liking and get the burnt coil/metal taste.

    Also to cover all 4 coils does use a lot of product but if your not a cloud chaser(me)
    and just do quick 1-3 second hits the load does last a while.
    If you ride that power button you’ll blow through your stash quickly

    Although first hit from cold I get a NICE 4-6 second smooth hit. Huge cloud.
    I do wish it had adjustable heat/voltage settings.
    My air control vent stopped working 1 week in meaning I have to loosen the coil if I want to change the air flow
    I leave it open full anyway.
    I wonder why Yocan doesn’t use variable power setting like the Aovape or the Source 4 for example??:cool:
    I personally like the Evolve Plus more than the XL.

    I'm using mine on a tc/vw mod box and has greatly improved performance and taste.
    But I think most are talking about three different settings built in to the pen.
    Double tap button to change settings.
    Hope that helps

    Glad to see some of y'all are enjoying this pen.


    I've been following and have been excited to get one, but Yocan stopped responding to my emails and I have not received any response since mid-September. I've sent several emails since but no reply...

    Yocan, you still out there?

    Why is this still in the upcoming and unreleased section? I can see it's widely available including eBay?

    Negative, I quit all concentrates save for Rosin/solventless and I use an enail or vaporizer for that. I still think that it's an incredible device for the right person, but I just don't think any concentrate pens are for me that are on the market at the moment. Rosin is very precious to me, so I want to have the best possible experience with it every single time, without any waste. Cheers.

    You double tap the button while the unit is on? How can you tell if you have changed the setting? TIA

    I’m still trying my review unit before I give a review.

    Damn , the unit is held at customs because Yocan declared it at 25$ and forgot to mention that it is a review unit,so now they are considering this a purchase and are demanding proof of the transaction which does not exist ,since i havent paid for it... I am really bummed by this situation.I will also have to do some serious driving around getting other documentation needed ,so i can pay the tax on those 25$...,and i really dont think i can spare the time to do this... ,also it would be pointless without copy of non-existent the payment transaction.
