Yeah that was also what I wanted to hear. Ordered from vgoodiez as the shipping was cheaper and faster and they also have the 3mm ruby pearls.

Don’t think I’ll get the baller nut bit as I’m so used to permanently having pearls and carb cap on top that I don’t ever tip it upside down for any reason . There’s a carb cap shaped scar in the carpet from a couple of years ago serving as a permanent reminder :lol:

I drove the screened baller pretty hard last night. I don't notice a difference in restriction between the two when I'm pulling on them and have found that my abv comes out about the same for light and medium pulls. However, with really hard pulls, my abv comes out lighter with the screened baller. This tells me that there IS actually more airflow with the screened baller (which makes sense); the faster moving air doesn't spend as much time navigating the balls and hits the herb at a slightly lower temp. So if I want to do hard rips on it, I'll bump the temp a bit higher than with the OG baller, otherwise I'll keep the temps the same. Or maybe I'll pull some 3mm balls and toss in some 2.5 mm balls to try to match the restriction that I get with the OG baller.

Aside from that, the only other difference that I notice is that my abv (which was already quite even with the OG baller) comes out perfectly even with the screened baller.

Firstly big thanks to the super quick service from @VGOODIEZ. Ordered Friday and am already testing today in the U.K. :clap:

Just started testing VROD: 3mm ruby non-screen baller edition (but also wedged a screen in the bottom and top anyway) and am surprised by the performance improvement.

Had to adjust my coil a bit to stop it wriggling but once that was done and filled with 3mm rubies I set it to usual temp 580, loaded 2 scoops ~.2g and hit it cap on 3 pearls in the dish with a fast/hard draw. Wow, completely and evenly did the whole bowl in 1. Definitely retaining more heat over harder draws. Might even need to drop the temp a bit. Possibly slightly lighter on the outer ring of bowl but otherwise fully cleared.

much more experimentation to go :science: but initial thoughts are it’s a worthwhile upgrade I didn’t really know I wanted/needed

Also interested to see how the 3 parts oxidise

I got one from vgoodiez today too lol

I got the weedeater with no beads and my daily for the last couple years has been an e-nano. The e-nano worked well, the device never gave me any issues and that thing was on 7+ hours every day, and temps were always consistent. I was just tired of the draw resistance. Maybe it was just because of the glass filter, but it was kind of a strain on your throat. It was better than the dynavap though, which is what the e-nano replaced and I was happy enough with it that I used it for 2 years straight. I don't usually even use glass for that long.

The drag resistance on the weedeater is pretty trippy though. It's no difference if it's on the bong or not, it's the same resistance. I'm still working out my temps, but my first pack was more enjoyable than the 2nd. I started at 625, but that seemed a little cool so I raised it up to 655 for the next hit. I took a few good hits at that temp and took a look at the pack. It still looked a little green, greener than I expected too. I cranked it up to 675 after that and killed that bowl. The 2nd one I started at 675 and that first hit was way too big and kicked my ass. I'm used to that slow draw that takes a while to hit, so I kept it going for too long. It only took another hit and a half for that pack to get dark.

I didn't pack very much. It was really just enough to fill the bottom. How much can you put in the bowl? If I can really fill it up I think this thing is gonna kill me.

I usually just cover the screen, and I think that’s the best option for high temps so you don’t strip out all the flavor before the rest of the cannabinoids.

I also like to fill the bowl maybe half way and set the temp in the mid-high 500s (usually 555-585). That’s with the VRod or ShowerHead, so you could probably bump that range up a bit for the WeedEater.

The screen baller with my 3-pc Goo Roo rig have been dominating my reach test. I've been doing smaller loads with my OG flowerpot bowl (which, for whatever reason, performs better for me than the shovelhead) and am lovin' it. It works really well with even just a light dusting of herb covering the screen.

I was going to put together a Beadeater for comparison but can't find my Weedeater after the move (or my original v-rod, for that matter). I've ordered a new Weedeater head from CH; scheduled for Wednesday delivery.

I also have a Weedeater I purchased from Vgoodiez. I've had mine for about ~8 months now and it's been my daily driver since it's arrived lol. I'm a high tolerance user who's used to big bong rips so I run mine pretty darn hot at 710-720. I do rip my piece really fast and hard but that's just how I like it. I get such a satisfying hit, and while I can roast a bowl (.1-.2) in a single hit, if I pace myself I can get 3 really good rips. The first in particular has really great flavor. I'm going to have to go back and read through the thread but I'm curious about a baller head for the Weedeater?

CH is currently working on an official version, but you can build one yourself for now with either of the two available baller heads using a standard CH screen pushed up into the WE top piece to keep the balls from coming out the top. Here's a photo of the pieces that spenceMC posted to the CH discord:

Awesome! I think I'll wait for the official version as I'm not in a rush, and I want a few other accessories as well like the heat shield and debowler stand. I'd rather grab 'em all in one go. Really cool CH is still rolling out upgrades and new iterations. It seems like ball vapes are all the rage right now!

Added the baller top nut today. Filled to the top with 3mm rubies and screwed on the nut. Performance went down along with open air flow. My thoughts are those beads in the top tube aren’t heating as much as the mass below. Airflow was quite restrictive also not allowing big pulls. I’ve taken the beads out now and screened the top again and still using the baller nut. Couple of dry pulls proved the open airflow was now back. This is with the screened baller.
 
I'm so used to my e-nano it's taking a little bit to get used to the hits from this thing. There's so much more airflow it only takes a couple seconds and then my bong is filled with vapor. There's so much less strain on my throat because of the airflow and it's been a nice relief. Now I'm coughing my ass off because the hits I'm taking are too big, so that's not helping. I just need to take quicker hits. You'd sit there for what felt like 20-30 seconds with a slow draw for the e-nano, but it's literally just a couple seconds with the weedeater.

Does it cook the bud fairly well if you let it just sit on top of the bowl for a couple minutes? Would it be better to put the coil on the stand in between hits? The bowl was so small on my e-nano this wasn't really a problem, but the weedeater holds quite a bit more and gets so much hotter I was wondering.

Coil temp drops a bit when I put a head on a bowl so sometimes I'll wait ~30-60 sec before taking a hit so it can come back up to temp, but I always remove it right after the hit. I don't like too much heat making its way into my glassware.

All the time you have the head on the bowl you’re heating the bowl up, so if you want to add a conduction element that’s the way to do it (at possible risk to your glass, so using a drop-down or other adapter is probably a good idea).

If you want to stay pure convection you should hit it as soon as you put the head on and remove the head as soon as you’re done. I lift it before I’m done inhaling so I can clear the vapor out and get some vapor-less air in at the end. That helps a lot for me in preventing coughing.

Good to know. Wonder if 4mm would be a good play with baller nut and filled all the way up...

A couple of weeks ago I was just a guy with a couple FlowerPots…..and a DCup. Well, look at me now. Potting flowers has never been so fun. Having the new and the new new is very exciting.

I’m leaning towards the OG Baller filled to the top with rubies, Baller Nut, and in the 575 range to be my daily CH device. The OG Baller has a bit more restriction and when the VRod was the only option I was a carb user so the OG Baller just feels a bit like the old days.

Had the baller mod filled with 3mm rubies. Been playing few days.

Used to run at 620 with cap. Now at 600 no cap. Thinking I can go lower.

Milks quicker and can complete bowl in one, maybe 2 hits. 10 to 15 sec draw now. Before more like 20 secs.

Taste has increased imo.

A marvelous mod and one I think should be standard spec.
I'm really pleased with it.

You must have amazing LUNGS! I’d lose my draw power before the vapor got to the 2nd rig...... :)

25+ years of tobacco smoking and my lungs might disagree with you. I'm still working on getting it perfect but incoming video once it uploads. its not as hard as you might think ;)
