REVIEW TIME (MORE TO COME)
Sooo I've had one of these for a few weeks now, coming from the Fury2 (and a Fierce as well) and I must echo much of what has been said here, but I will try to offer some new perspective at least! There are so many different vaping styles among various users, and the good news is that HealthyRips have released another well-thought-out product that can be used several different ways very enjoyably and effectively.
For starters, ran several burn offs to break everything in along with quick iso qtip wipes. Packaging is simple and sleek with a lot included in such a small box. I also got a WPA and black bent glass mouthpiece separate from the box. All the glass comes in cased in from and is quite thick so no worry about breakage etc. Also got two sets of the dosing capsules, 4 in a tube so 8 total. Everything neutralized pretty fast, I am a little sensitive to silicone and such, fortunately it is all very high quality here!
My first few bowls were actually with the bent glass stem (with full size bowl) from the Fury2, and I also tried the Fury2 wpa a bit as well. I really love these stems, the built-in glass screen and size is great, plus easy to keep everything else clean. The heater is fast and keeps up well, the little vibration is definitely nicer than the LEDs of the F2. The Edge is a little taller than the Fury2 and I prefer that, since it is still a tiny portable, but now it is easier to not accidentally block the air intake with your finger when holding. Plus the extra battery life is substantial, and charges pretty quick as well with usb-c. Still dig this subtle rubberized coating too, very comfortable to hold, clean and sleek.
I then began to use the capsules, along with the accessory mouthpiece and black bent stem (tried with wpa briefly as well, but prefer the F2 stem wpa personally if using through water-- I should try it connected to a larger mouthpiece I think that would work very well-- great how it still fits 10/14/18mm). I never tried the F2 capsules, which I believe are all mesh? and may fit in the Edge, but these capsules are steel shells with holed steel screens on top and bottom. They fit perfectly snug in the chamber and connect right up to the blue o-ring (which now houses a steel mesh screen instead of one of the holed steel screens like F2 and the Edge capsules) which connects right to the glass stem sheathed securely in the mouthpiece. That extra mesh screen really helped keep the glass stem pristine, though it is not entirely necessary, it may also help condition the vapor a little.
So when using the capsules, the extraction is a bit darker and more thorough than using the glass stem, which makes sense providing more conduction steel vs glass. I would start at 320F and milk the flavors, still getting surprisingly substantial clouds, so I would temp step a bit keeping it low, able to finish the bowls around 380 though there is less left by then when you start so low with session conduction happening along with the powerful convection... I can see how convenient it is to be able to preload several and swap them in, though it is not easy to do when hot, having prefilled chambers is a very nice feature out and about, esp for fresh hits!
A word about taste, I am a flavor chaser who appreciates clouds but rides low temps, and I can be a bit more sensitive two things like heater material (I could notice the nichrome in F2 and Fierce) so with the new steel heater of the Edge (and eventual Fierce2?) my hopes were high... And now I am happy to report they were met exceptionally! At low temps the Fury2 already tasted pretty good to me, but the flavor in the edge is truly next level (once broken in a bit ofcourse, for both). Even using the steel capsules, I was able to taste every complex note of the nice fresh Exotic Dream herbs I was vaping, like delicious blueberry pineapple haze. Impressively mouth-watering, I could see packing several capsules to cash them quickly at the lowest setting, just for the enjoyment as opposed to the vast other benefits... I have mostly been using a consistent medium-fine grind from my brilliant cut grinder by the way.
I have not yet tried loading the steel bowl directly, pretty nice to get so much use out of the vape while keeping it fully clean, I love removable chambers! I also have not tried the standard mouthpiece or the plain straight glass mouth piece it comes with (the glass wpa and black bent stem are separate accessories like the Fury2 glass stems). Those 3Dflow stems look cool too, and I dig how many colors are available! I forgot there was a concentrate pad included as well, should give that a try at some point too... I will continue to post here as I continue to use my Edge more and more.
To sum up, the Fury2 was a gold standard recommendation for a wide variety of usage: portable, powerful, quick, pure, efficient, simple, stealthy, versatile, and even low-priced with fantastic customer support. Somehow the FuryEdge raises the bar even further with too many great updates to list (more battery life, better form factor, more electronic features, purer taste, more mouthpiece and chamber accessories and backwards compatibility)... This is a phenomenal beginner vape, but it is also oh so much more, putting other (more expensive) vapes to shame. Honestly every herbal enthusiast should probably have one!
