    Nothing is necessary but it is a whole different experience. Much different technique and again that feeling of wood vs a mod. If you are more of a penny pincher you might not see the value but the collector will want to have both.

    Thanks for sharing all this good info. How do we know which heater is in the different RBT Splinter models? I thought I read the the Splinter Z has the same heater as the Zion. Is that true? Still I like the look of the Zion a lot and it would be fun to be able to buy one.

    This isn't the Zion. The Zion was regulated via a potentiometer and buck chip. Zion M is unregulated beast with double the heater of the Zion.

    Splinter Z has the heater of the Zion. Splinter has the heater from the Milanna.

    Yep all accurate and thank you. I guess I should have pointed out the heater difference between the Zion and Zion M but I missed that detail.

    Is that what you are proposing to do with the Zion bodies? How many will there be?

    I'm not sure I understand the question. These are made by RBT, not Vgoodiez. I just beta test and sell them retail when they are ready.

    And yes this is how the balance of the left over Zion bodies are being repurposed. I don't have an exact count that will be available but I suspect in the ballpark of 25 units.

    Hey folks... keep eye on Wavy Vapes as the Zion M will be his 100 review. Nice to have such a master of the manual vape running this final Beta unit up for us! Look for a flash sale on IG when they are ready... there is only a handful of these and other US made gear that will be made to close out the US made line. Sure was fun playing vapor maker for all those years but now production is in the hands of quality manufacturing. Thanks for the grass roots support with the IG auctions... more fun to come.

    The heater is nearly double the size of Zion so as Splinter is to Splinter Z (Zion heater) is to the M... so the vapor is thicker and richer faster with the large heater and high voltage (nearly double at 8.4 V max). So, its like a Milaana had sex with a Zion and a mutant power house was born. It runs fast and hot so you have to be on your game while modulating the button... kinda like a torch vape.

    It is the TOD... used to be a thread on it somewhere lol. Shout out to @IAmKrazy2 and @hdspringer for doing the testing "back in the day" ... good times man good times.

    If you would like a Zion M please send a blank email to zionm@rastabuddhatao.com. Please note there will be no response. This is simply to collect emails that will be used to notify when the units will be available in the www store, this is not a wait list. Any emails received in excess of the number of Zion Ms that are made will be the start of the 2 battery manual pre-order list if the Zion M is well received.

    Keep an eye out for my man Wavy's review of the Zion M for his 100th review!

    Great video! Would've personally liked to see some close ups of the ABV in the stem between hits and maybe dumped out after session to access hot spotting (if any) and evenness of heating but we can clearly see this thing easily pumps out some serious clouds and flavor!


    Thanks Wavy, congrats on #100 you're a vape legend!
