    Hey Ryan, thanks for the announcement - I am honored to represent RBT in this way, & will hopefully help to lay some new tracks . . . . choo choo :cool:

    And also, thanks for the time you gave to add even more insight into the world of RBT & Zion for those interested. Last night's (wee hours of this morning for me) Instagram live cast was a great beginning to what I hope will become a regular slot & give everyone a way to find out more about what you're doing & your future plans - as well as providing the chance to ask questions and interact in real-time with the creator of this awesome vaporizer family.

    I know you were asking for feedback on sound & lighting etc, but tbh, it all seemed fine. I mean, it probably wouldn't hurt to look a bit brighter - I think bright is generally good, but then I have the backlight on my phone turned way down anyway :shrug: :rolleyes:
    And I could hear ya fine - but I had headphones on . . .

    I guess what I'm saying is: you did fucking great - we could hear you AND we could see Zions :tup: Plus, I really think it's pretty amazing that you are putting yourself out there in this way & virtually bringing people into your home. It adds transparency, and displays a level of trust and (2-way) respect. Stick at it bro. If you build it, they WILL come.

    And it would be nice to see some more of you guys in there next time. I'd really recommend it if you can make it. I don't think you even need an IG account, but if you do happen to have one then you get to press RBT for the answers to those questions that YOU wanna ask & hear about . . . c'mon guys! :)

    Good to know @DieHard is putting his new & improved heater through it's paces.
    Attaboy! :brow:

    Oh, and thanks for the positive words @b0 & @vapen00b - you guys certainly help to keep the good spirit alive and the train a-chugging . . . ;)

    Keep it ZiMi, fam.

    Peace ya ya ya!
    :peace:

    The more time I spend with Loki (updated beta Zion), the more I am discovering the extra added magic that Ryan has put
    In there. I am riding the button at high dial settings. I am getting No hot spot in the center of the load. It seems to be more heating all the way to the edges. I will have to do an in-depth ABV analysis complete with photos later. But for now, whatever you did to Loki works great. @RastaBuddhaTao

    My beta Zion has finally come home and she has a new heater!

    All I can say is this thing rips. I will need to do some more testing this weekend, but I am loving the upgraded heater so far and the power of two batteries.

    I was just doing some basic guessing today as far as how many bowls i have ripped out of the Zion. I am guessing it is near 1500 bowls. Got to love that

    I'm probably close to 1000, but I wouldn't know how to count accurately. About 80% of my vaping is through Zion or Milaana. Maybe 90% of my home vaping.

    I guess a good indicator of Zions "me first" status is that I have replaced both battery pairs I started with due to their power reduction. Venus keeps kickin ass, or mine anyway.

    That's all very cool.

    Now I'm just guessing of course, but I'm thinking my tally is near 1600 bowls.

    Ner ner ner ner ner! :p ;)

    I'm just kidding of course.

    It's 1700.

    I have no idea what my count is, but I suspect it sits somewhere between "Dude, that's a lot" and "Holy shit, Dude, do you ever just breathe oxygen"?

    Can't wait to load up my first Zion bowl. Also can't wait to load it up with a little shatter and some bud.

    I may even gather up all my weeds and put a vote for which one gets vaped in it first.

    Soooooo, I thought y'all might like to see a little sun drenched picture from deep within my archives . . . . . :o

    . . . . Early days beta Zion # 5 (aka Johnny) gives it some attitude with a rough maple snarl! Rrrrrr!
    [​IMG]
    It's all about the confidence.
    Yeah, it's all about that texture.
    Man, production Zion has been honed and perfected to such a degree that Johnny is looking like the missing link! I still fucking love 'im though, wouldn't change him for the world. Little Johnny is a punk rocker :rockon:

    HiOnZion.
    OneBigLove.

    I've had my beta Zion back with the upgraded heater for a week now and I haven't used any of my other vapes since. The upgraded heater vapes so evenly I never need to stir. I also think the power spectrum is perfect. At the lowest setting I get barely visible vapor that tastes amazing and full blast huge lung busting clouds, no combustion so far. I can't wait until everyone gets to experience their zions!

    Are you just glad to get your Zion back or are you really saying that with a Zion you don't use/need even powerful plug-in vapes?

    I wouldn't say I don't need them, but I definitely don't need to use them as much. The Zion is just so convenient and provides a great experience.

    Attention! Milaana has left the building. @cannabis.pro has officially taken over the production of Milaana. This clears the way to apply even more focus on Zion.

    There has been some delays on the production parts for the voltage control knob. However, after weeks of testing the prototype parts in units 18, 22, and 23 the results are favorable. The UMW foam backed washers provide a smooth, stable feel. The last element is finalizing how much drag force is applied. Anyone up for a good stiff knob?

    I will be sorting through age old emails to get these lovely refreshed Zion's back to their rightful owners soon... can't even begin to tell ya how good this feels.

    There where some misalignments in the doors and electronics covers so they might need to be scrapped and reproduced. Once the doors and lids are completed they can be applied to the Zion's main body with the magnets and sanded. This activity should take us into March. After this is completed the routing, drilling, sanding and buffing still need to be completed. In parallel the electronics harnesses are being fabricated in order for them both to line up in assembly together.

    Thanks for your continued patience. I wish all of you the peace of mind to know Milaana is safely in VT and RBT has the head locked on the hottest vaporizer of 2107 ;)

    Keep an eye on the IG and The Tube for the latest Zion info and picks.

    Question for those who have a zion, especially one with the new heater configuration. Does the load need turning or stirring? I am able to use my Mi without needing to stir, but I do need to rotate the stem. I am curious if that is still needed with the zion, or if you can just leave the stem in and get an evenly cooked load.

    Since I won't likely be around when the zion comes out, I am asking for the sake of my great-grandkids in 2107. I think they are really going to love it!

    Mine didn't have the latest configuration and it was better than Mi, without even rotating the stem as you describe. I remember using it through a hydrotube without any need to stir as that helped me get optimal airflow somehow for very even extraction. So new units should be much better still, even if a bit user dependent

    I have the new heater and you don't need to rotate it at all. Your great grand kids are definitely going to love it, you might enjoy it as well!
