I use the MVS on my firewood, it fits well and has a very flexible air hole that could be like what you're looking for, I personally always leave it closed but you can open it wide or throttle it any amount you want. To get around the draw resistance I go for coarse grinds and lighter packs, I use the simrell condenser as the tube that connects the MVS into the ceramic of the firewood and that tube is slightly wider than the default glass tube, it still fits great but I can fit the intercooler into it and like I said I think being slightly wider helps with the draw resistance as well. I generally prefer the wide open draw of the WPA over the default mouthpiece assembly literally every time, but you can't beat how pocketable it is with the mouthpiece.
Yes I do. The vapor conditioning seems strongest when starting cold, so I think most of the noticeable action comes from the heat capacity of the metal. The first hit or three off the cold start are significantly better than the hula stem, then for extended sessions the difference is less noticeable, but the MVS is a bit more comfortable even then.Do you find it cools better than the stock hula cooling stem?
Hello again and sorry if someone already asked this, I used the magnifying glass to look up the threads and found someone saying that he broke the stem and that the ceramic is fragile. So thinking I might get one this sunday (fingers crossed), should I buy spare parts? I have seen ppl using other things as stems so I dont think I will grab an extra stem but I am curious if maybe an extra ceramic or the capsules are worth it.
If you have the time to let me know I would appreciate it, thanks.
Really appreciate you. Thank you!@Starzboy77 : Sorry, this is not the best because I have it slightly modded, but it should get you going hopefully.......the silicone nearest the oven is just so the stem doesn't go in any further, I don't use portably so I don't need it to retract (plus it makes the whole stem just a tad longer, also to help mitigate the heat). But it doesn't matter, that part of the little glass stem just goes into the oven. The side I have going into the inception stem is one size bigger silicone than Marc provides, because of the variances in glass sometimes the smaller diamtered silicone leaves it a little loose in there and I don't like using those little o rings. But anyways my man, if my memory serves me correctly, I think Marc provides two little silicone pieces and some o rings. So on the inception side, if the provided silicone stays in there firm enough for you, your good. If not, than I believe you sandwich the orings inbetween the two silicones and insert.
One bit of warning though.......if you push the little glass stem of the Firewood in too far it's going to sit right up against the cooling stem inside the inception stem and provide restrictive pulls. So make sure you can see that you left enough room of a gap between the two little stems. The other reason I use the bigger silicone is because with the two silicone pieces and the orings attached there's very little room to get that gap in there. Even though the picture below looks like the silicone is barely in there, because it's bigger, it's in there very snug and won't pull out. I hope you understand all that, lol.

Really appreciate you. Thank you!
So what I did was use the larger silicone with an oring on the stem side and it seems to be working great. The oring isn't exactly centered but still seems to be air tight.
Oh yeah baby, lather that shit up!I've had my FW7 for a few weeks now and it really is an awesome vape. I feel like the shade of the wood has been lightening up a bit. Not sure if it's a big deal or not, but I have a tin of "under dog vapes, underbutter"
(From their website: "Underbutter is our version of wood conditioner, made with organic beeswax and oil.")
I'm assuming it's safe to use a light amount of this stuff on the FW7?
You said it better than I ever could. I agree with everything. It's a fantastic portable vape. I like using it with a j-hook the best, but it works well through water also. I dont feel I need much cooling beyond the j-hook. I marvel at how my abv comes out so perfect with no stirring. Too many positives to list with this one.it took me a while to get things dialled in right, but i think i am getting closer and this firewood is fantastic. i do think a fourth heat preset could be useful (for me), but it isnt too complicated changing temp on the fly once one is used to the buzz interface. vapour & extraction seems all excellent (particularly in terms customisability - and i feel this really is an edge the firewood has to other portables i know), but at the end of the day the entire user experience is just wonderful. so satisfying just pushing this little stem out. marvelling at the walnut. super portable. not exactly the on-demand mighty i was initially looking for (there is a learning curve, for me at least), but i am super-greatful i was able to get one of these. contender for greatest purchase of 2021.
Alright I'm going to confess something that I'm not proud of. I haven't cleaned the Firewood since I got it back in August and I've only cleaned the stem 1 time. I know, I know, I 'm disgusting and I deserve the electric chair. I won't even blame anyone who judges me. But I promise I'm not like this with any over vape.. It's just... This thing just continues to rip without ever having any issues it seems... So I don't ever think to clean it.
However I noticed my grody behavior has had one tiny effect. I seem to have some resin residue on the ceramic bowl connector. How have people gone about cleaning that off?
Other than that, I am head over heels with this vape. I can't imagine what the 8 is going to bring
