Hello friend!I’ve been looking at these for some time. I want an off the grid vape that will pack a huge punch and give amazing flavour like my firefly. But I do want those dense hits that I know these can pump out. Due to finances I’m looking at a runt. But the one concern I have is not being able to clean the air path from the bowl to the stem since that channel is all wood. And you don’t inhale butane with this at all right?
Cleaning the air path is easy and straight forward. My routine is as follows:
1. Mouthpiece goes in a bag of iso. Flame intake doesn't get dirty.
2. Screen gets tossed and replaced. I'll scrape out any big chunks from the airpath with the stir tool.
3. Wet qtip in the air path with warm water only.
4. I probably take an extra step, I twist some paper towels and push/pull through the airpath. It usually takes more resin off and gets the wood dry. But, this is probably an extra step.
Thats it. It can be as in depth as you like for your comfort, or it can be quick and dirty.
As far as butane goes, the theoretical complete combustion of butane gives off carbon dioxide and water products. With a well functioning torch and pure butane, I feel comfortable using a brick and don't worry about inhaling unspent gas. The best thing I can say, and I went through it before getting a brick, is you have to research and feel comfortable.
Let us know if there are any questions you might have. And if you get a runt, throw a pic up so we can drool at the wood grain. Cheers homie!
