    Nope. It's that number from the creator himself. The # we only body numbers to keep track of the different parts - not indicating completed units. ;)

    Just for you guys, I'm whipping out my Zion for the first time in months. Thanks for the encouragement :)

    Edit 4 minutes later:
    Yeah .... Now I remember why I waited like 540 days for this thing :D

    Fuck, I'm going to use this more now that my Splinter is torn apart awaiting adhesive.

    Chooooo Choooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Edit again:
    just saw this was my 2,420 post ;)

    That's interesting.
    Before Ryan shipped mine we talked and he said mine was the last one to go out the door. Didn't know about the numbers just being for the parts. Maybe he sent yours out before mine because it was to be shipped to Zion and also I was getting some parts from him also.
    Or maybe he just finished a few more later on.:brow:

    It is a first class device. Brilliant simple analog.
    A little bulky but as the first of the series it's great.
    Maybe if it comes out again as Zion mark ll, it will be refined down like the M2.
    It's also fine as is...
    We are programmed to improve.

    Zion bringing me home this weekend. Flipped the screen dome style and pushed it way down. Huuuge bowls for huge clouds. Fuck I'm having fun. Zion going to come out to play a lot more. It. Is. The. Fucking. King.

    Chilled with my buddy @Yancy Fry Jr. and his new old Zion (my second) that just arrived on the east coast before I did, we broke it in (again) so he could learn the ropes. We used a long stem and I had put basket screens at the tip with the a little glass rim as I prefer, also gave him that custom JoDa GonG for his main stem since this old beta body makes it tricky for all stems to seal without wobble, tested all mine and sent him the best ones. Anyway it is now in a new loving home and it still kicks such ass despite all its various shortcomings! ZION4LIFE

    Been using mine exclusively this weekend so far. Took my tape off and opened the airflow to really get that OG Zion experience. The huge bowls of fine grind have been a ton of fun. Huuuuuuge clouds on any temp and almost perfect abv with some stirring despite the entire male end being filled with herb.

    This is honestly one of the best vapes I've used. It's just so incredible, and I'll never be able to put into words how much I enjoy using it. I can describe everything it excels at, list the points on efficiency and vapor quality and flavor, but it'll never do justice on how much I actually love this vape.

    What happened to your splinter? It seems pretty unbreakable. And what are you using for a mp on the zion? I got mine out and used it with my do20 and it didn't really work too well.

    Typically the standard medium long stem that it holds, and will connect to water when feeling it

    I accidentally threw Splinter and the 510 came loose lol

    Well I just received a Zion and after a couple hits I can confirm that yes, this is a very good vape.

    Still loving my new colored bent stems from Mist and using them almost exclusively with my Zion, but I just successfully tested another bent stem idea I should have done a long time ago:

    [​IMG]

    Yes that is a Solo bent stem in 18mm female Zion, thanks to a bit of silicone tubing around the bowl of the stem so it can seal in the ground glass (had it like this already for use in my Lily for a while since I kept it after selling my Solo and Air). It works great and givees me and effective all glass bowl for RBT vapes, though it is larger than my others and does get a fair amount of herb in your mouth on first draws... A decent trade off to use a bent stem like this, the original bent stem experience I had been chasing with my on demand glass stem convection vapes since I first got OG beta Zig

    Lol oh how you love your bent stems Shitty.

    I like them too. Been using my Tubo bent stem with all my 19mm male glass vapes. Do you have one of them and how do you like it if so?

    Yup I do and yup I do! I did use it once with my Milaana actually, but had to hold it there since its an iso joint not us. I do enjoy it quite a bit as well, but the colored stems from Mist are definitely nicer (I prefer RBT basket screens in the joint instead of rimmed). I use that Tubo bent stem with a custom shallow rimmed RBT screen, given with a different iso bent stem I had him cut for me a while ago too... I guess I gotta get a bent stem group shot together now, huh?

    I like the bent stems from @mistvaporizer - just wish the mp was a bit narrower like the Tubo bent MPs. May have to grab one or 2 for Zion use... I haven't really used the thing in a while. Feels bad :( Maybe will bust it out tomorrow.

    My "imperfect" amber one from him tapers to be just as narrow as my tubo bent stem actually. But they are all different in various ways

    I still can pull really nice clouds with the medium stem, and I get tastes from some buds that I've never gotten with other vaporizers in my RBT vapes, though I guess I "only" have a Zion now. Maybe bent stem will be a treat for myself here coming up on 420... I think taking the direct heat off of my throat helps a lot which is why I prefer it in my tubo.

    I thought the mistvape ones were 14mm not 18mm.

    I don't know if they are available as a real option for the public, but he had the ones I posted here on the previous page made special for me

    I removed the tape I would use to restrict the airflow when I started using my Zion again. After a week or so with no tape, I consistently find myself covering part of the inlet with my finger. I officially like the restriction much more. It's just superior for vapor production ime. Tape will probably go back on to restrict it again. Or ... I'll keep using the finger method, it's nice closing off 80% then opening it fully when you're clearing. Honestly works the best that way probably, but is the most effort.

    Highly recommend trying th restricted airflow. More vapor on lower temps and smoother on the throat.

    How?
    1. Get tape.
    2. Tear off small piece and place over inlet on bottom of Zion.
    3. Get a toothpick and poke a hole in the middle.
    4. Vape.
    *test* poke larger hole if you find it too restricted, but at least give it some time to test.

    Recommended. Go. Try it. Lemme know.

    I haven't tried this because I really don't seem to have much difficulty getting vapor production. Just for fun I WILL try it out some time soon and let you know.
