He should simwell us an anvil stem instead of producing caps for the DV boys. I sold my one and only Phantom M. Wont use it anymore.
I believe it's still a conduction-heavy vape. The FMJ just buffers the heat so it takes a slower soak, which allows the load to heat through before you hit it. Sure, the cap heats the air as it's drawn in, but I believe it's just enough to keep things going, not enough to initiate a convection response. The flavor is still pure Dynavap, suggesting not much is different--except that you lose the initial terp hit DVs are famous for.To be fair the FMJ seems to re bias the DV to convection already, from watching it demoed
It seems you control the roast with how much you restrict the airflow. More restriction gives a darker roast, which suggests to me that convection is the main driver here
Also this FMJ should be showing people that this was never really about convection, it’s mostly a controlled lower temp conduction hit going on here
Could you go into detail on this point a little more? You always have such interesting thoughts on vape concepts
Seems to me the opposite, that the FMJ allows an “RTL” hit via the convection it enables through the cap being able to hold onto and pass on more heat to the air stream
Thanks for the detailed reply, I appreciate that a lot man - I see where you’re coming from now. Always good to learn more about my strange hobby that nobody around here shares. I’ve always thought the anvil had a larger conduction element than John claimed, even more so with the XL bowl which leaves conduction patches if I under heat itIt would be the same reason as my above post; the jacket will transfer heat to the bowl faster than incoming air through the cap could be heated. The tip is being heated by the cap and it’s 400w/MK copper jacket (heatsink) whereas the air is only being heated by stainless steel or titanium at ~15w. And that’s considering a clean tip - polymerized oils will reduce heat transfer substantially.
To increase the convection bias, you need to remove conduction, but you can’t because the bowl is physically coupled to the heat source.
Both vapes are vaporizing via conduction by the time the click comes. There’s more heated surface area in the anvil but neither have some gigantic convection heating element like a glass symphony or anything.
How would contact surface area affect the calculation? The struts supporting the bowl are the main conductive channels while the incoming air can leach heat from the entire inner wall of the oven.The tip is being heated by the cap and it’s 400w/MK copper jacket (heatsink) whereas the air is only being heated by stainless steel or titanium at ~15w.
We have people who only contribute to this thread by trying to stir up drama, at least you got us a new heat shield colour option much earlier than we would have otherwise. I liked having more options to choose from, so you speaking up and helping to make it happen is appreciated here, overrun jokes or not. Personally I'd stop apologizing, ignore any further complaints, then go all out and rock a purple avatar.
Please forgive me fc, I know I annoyed everyone
Acknowledging that this is just a guess based on Reddit and IG posts, but it seems to me like Simrell might have been sent a unit to evaluate the potential for 3rd party stems and accessories by Vestratto. When he came out with what is essentially a competing product in the FMJ instead of expanding the Anvil Eco-system, maybe some feelings were caught and blog posts were written? 100% speculation on my part of course.The anvil uses too many proprietary parts to be a good candidate for aftermarket stems. It would require basically an entire redesign. All you gotta do is take one apart, all the pieces need each other to function.
If you kept the design you'd have to create a distinct ecosystem. Not sure how you could do other than use the heatshield/mouthpiece threads to mount stem pieces?I've gotta imagine aftermarket stems are on the way eventually. But the sheer amount of heating that goes into the Anvil is gonna pose some problems for actual stems (as opposed to screw-on mouthpieces like the XL).

I agree about he food fighting over stuff we mostly love, but some of this is kinda relevant since the comparisons have been made by the mfrs themselves, not just the peanut gallery. I feel that the competition is mostly hype and that the actual situation is more complimentary, even with the copper cap in the mix. It's like fighting over ends of the visible light spectrum. I have a feeling that when the dust settles, there will be many happy users of anvils, DVs, and both.Why is there such a massive discussion about vape parts that aren’t part of the anvil. Ffs can these makers just make a solid product and big up themselves without discussing other people trying to do the same, there’s space for everyone here and it’s not exactly a stellar industry in terms of companies surviving long term, dirt kickers aren’t exactly going to do themselves any favors over time.
The Sunday posts are indulgent and overwrought.
I think the standout genius thing about the Anvil's design was the decision to choose a screw-in bowl. This, even more than the copper and the heat sink, sets the anvil apart from Dynavap imo.The anvil uses too many proprietary parts to be a good candidate for aftermarket stems. It would require basically an entire redesign. All you gotta do is take one apart, all the pieces need each other to function.
Also this FMJ should be showing people that this was never really about convection, it’s mostly a controlled lower temp conduction hit going on here. The Anvil floats the bowl for an insulatory air gap but by nature of using a metal bowl it’s always going to conduct heat 100x faster than the herb or the air. If the bowl wasn’t a conduction bridge between the oven it wouldn’t click.
Sure, the cap heats the air as it's drawn in, but I believe it's just enough to keep things going, not enough to initiate a convection response.
I’d like to throw a log on the convection conduction argument.
I had an interrupted cycle the other day. Heated it to click then had to quietly put it down without ever raising it to my mouth. Some time later, I opened the lightly loaded half chamber to crush the now cooked nug for a second heat. It was too spongy to crush. So I’ll pat myself on the back for growing such juicy nugs. And I’ll step back and say that there is a very convection heavy way of using this device.
