There is a learning curve, so expect that going in, but if you give it a few tries, you’ll be very happy with your purchase.

The Deuce is a very nice tool for fast solventless extractions for personnal use, since I got the tek right now I'm getting between 0.20-0.25 for each 2gr press, most returns are sappy and tend to budder. Enough to last me 2 or 3 days. Last press was from Hazelicious, got a good 0.25 and I can see a lot is still in the puck maybe 0.05... I vape the rosin chips from my Deuce in my Rift by Vivant which is a pretty efficient conduction vape able to extract everything even from a compressed chips, I break some small piece I stuck in the 3 bowl's compartments. I vape the rosin in my enail, induction Legend enail, Quartz Quest and Straw :tup: but never in my Hercule or tanks cause it tend to gunk things too fast.

How is the quality of your starting material? 0.2 seems like a low yield for 2 grams. Ive never used the slug.33 but using normal plates and a clamp i easily get back 0.15-0.2 per gram i press

Yes my starting material isn't the best, it's outdoor homegrown weed, far to be the worst I seen but not close of the best sadly...

Just bought the Deuce on Monday. Gonna give this thing a go when I get it. No confirmation yet, but based off of the posts that I seen, it should come by Friday...is that right? I will be posting some videos here shortly...the minute I get it.

I recommand you to wait until you mastered the Slug's tek, I had a few fails before to get the hang out of it. Even now it happens I get some issues... for my last press I forgotten how the ambient temperature is high and heated my Deuce similarly I did in winter... and got a black goo where all the terps was already vaporized by the Deuce since the high temp used. There is a learning curve.

Sorry for the back to back post but I got a very successfull press today with my Deuce, rainy day, not working, lazy day... I let an opened jar which took a lot of the ambient humidity, very spongy weed absolutly ungroundable... so I thought it was a good time to take out my Deuce... wasn't expecting a lot since it was a homegrown cross between a local unknown sativa and a Afgani which looks and smells very good and is very sticky but doesn't provide a stoney effect at all, more a sativa heady high...

I cannot believed my eyes when I saw so much rosin to flow out even before I started to press a lot, I didn't weight it but I think I'm in a good 15-20% yield range maybe more cause it was so runny it wasn't easy to get an idea of the exact amount. But I'm very happy since I usually got less and even only half of that!

My concern about rosin is how much it sizzles on the nail... is it a sign of contaminants? maybe water? Did you let your rosin "dry" a few days before to vape it? usually I press and vape all in a day or two (here it will last a bit more!)?

Sorry I haven't pics to share. Thank you @Abysmal Vapor for the stainless steel backplate to replace the parchment, not easy for scraping but an healthier surface for sure.

@PPN That's most likely moisture in the rosin, sounds like your starting material was fairly humid. You could take the lid off your jar and stick it between the plates or on a hot plate @ about 130 degrees for an hour or so. I do that occasionally with sappier rosin to get a more budder-like consistency and might help evaporate a bit of that extra moisture.

@invertedisdead and I were just talking about this and he mentioned some commentary from Frenchy Cannoli about the amount of "juice" from the plant that might be making its way into our rosin. Seems to be one of the major reasons hash rosin feels cleaner.

Conventional wisdom tells us to keep bud decently humid (in the 62-68% range) but I've been hearing some talk from pros about keeping it lower, which sacrifices yield, but can result in a potentially higher quality product. Everyone has different goals and tastes though, in the end it's all about what you enjoy! :peace:

@PPN Outside of the plant juices itself, you can also introduce moisture into the rosin during collection if you used an ice pack or freezer.

Thanks for the replies, yes @superdang9000 my concern was all this moisture which sizzle and hurt the taste, will try some dry buds too. I thought moisture was the key but finally, even if it helps for yield it's not good for quality rosin.

I thought cannabinoid wasn't soluble in water although it looks like it's not the case using rosin tek, somebody can explain me the science behind?

When rosin first came out there were all sorts of theories about the science behind it, one of the popular ones was that the steam was assisting in extraction and an emphasis was placed on relative humidity of your flower.

Now a days I think it's pretty well accepted that we're literally just melting the resin off the plant. Or in the case of hash rosin, the press is serving mostly as a filtration medium to separate the resin from the resin heads.

I have been looking for a home based rosin solution, and have seteled on the slug 33.

I have had a read through.I think the deuce size seems right for me. Can anyone with a deuce recomend a vice for this?

Is dabbing.de the only retailer in europe? I am in the UK.

I just stumbled onto this thread and saw this video...


...and thought to myself - "Self - this is a perfect application for an induction heater."

Anyone else agree? Or do I need to read those other 49 pages :brow:

50 pages and only 2 pictures of nice-looking rosin...and they were not made by the slug, why does it all look like too hot and too much pressure. I have pressed 18-month-old buds, old crappy bush and they all come out light and clear unless I use too much heat and or pressure.:hmm:
