The flips a monster a unpredictable monster without das disc!
I have a Junior and that is a phenomenon which was quite irritating for me at the beginning too .Slightly yellow ABV, no more vapor... But yes I think it's quite efficient. I sometimes re-vape my ABV from other devices in my Herborizer because I have no regular supply and you can load quite a big amount of ABV and go relatively high with the temperature and squeeze the rest of the ABV.The ABV was very light in color, but wasn’t producing any vapor. I kept trying to hit it, thinking there must be more in there since it was so light, but no vapor came out. Is that normal? I didn’t take a photo of the abv due to how friggen hard this thing has hit me! It’s been a bit since I got this high on that little material.
The WPA and intake should be the same diameter and fit fairly snug in the o-ring, or at least mine does. If your WPA is too loose it may be defective and need be replaced. Have fun with your new toy!I also tried to put the WPA on, but the gasket that holds the glass in place is very loose, and the WPA just slides right out when placed on the water pipe.
I'm very happy for you my friend the wait is finally over! For the problem with your WPA, is the mouth piece holding more securely than the WPA? Sometimes it's the glass that is the problem, each piece is hand blown so you always have little difference in size so it's the first place I would look. You can check if it's the hole the problem by simply switching the intake and the WPA, both hole should be the same. If you can, change the o-ring,My Sticky Brick Runt in Canary came this morning from Cream City Vapes. I also got the WPA. I decided to start with a smallish 1/3 full bowl, just in case I combusted. And because I want to keep testing and experimenting today, not sleep all day. I left the restrictor disk in, as suggested, until I figure it all out. The first hit was super terpy, but no visible vapor. Next three hits were amazing!!!

The gasket that holds the intake in place is pretty tight. It seems like the hole for the mouthpiece was drilled a little bigger, so the gasket is a little loose. I’ll keep playing with it to figure out a good way to make it work.
I’m very excited to keep experimenting and learning, and eventually join the big boys by removing the restrictor disk.

Ok now that you have isolated the problem you should send an email to Sticky Brick they'll tell you what to do about it.Thanks for the suggestion to try it in the intake gasket to test. It holds the whole weight of the brick on the wpa when I put it in the intake gasket. So I guess the hole for the mouthpiece gasket was made just slightly too large to make a good seal.
There should be a small o-ring that holds the metal piece in place. As far as I understand it the metal tube isn’t even necessary, it just keeps things cleaner.The metal piece that is supposed to stay in the intake wood piece keeps falling out but i take it that will expand over time.
Thanks! You got me to the whistle. I turned the torch up (at first I thought the Honest torch couldn’t be adjusted, it’s my first butane device and I didn’t see a slider switch), and moved it further away. I angled it downward so it was hitting the bottom of the intake right at the outer flame tip. Two HUGE hits finished the bowl, and gave me very dark abv. I think I came real close to combusting on the second hit, even with the restrictor disk in.@iammyself It is definitely possible to get dark ABV with the Sticky Brick lineup. It sounds like you need to bump up the heat on your torch. You might also need to increase your draw speed with a stronger torch, or adjust the distance to be further from the intake. One of the beautiful things about Bricks is you can take several massive rips and your herb still looks the same as when you loaded the chamber. Keep going with a strong flame, there are more hits left in your material.
Yup! I definitely shouldn’t have tried the wpa the very next bowl after just getting it right. Too many variables. I combusted. Gross! But at least in the process of cleaning it out with ISO, the gasket now seems to fit very tight on the mouthpiece. I guess the wood absorbed some moisture. I should have thought of adding a bit of water for the wood to swell and tighten the gasket. It has been too long since high school wood shop.The brick can be pretty surprising, sometimes you'll get a big cloud of vapor and you'll be sure you just combusted but when you look inside the herb is not even dark yet. Just be careful when you use it with water because the feeling of the vapor is completely different and it's easier to over heat and combust since you can't feel the taste and the heat of the vapor like with the regular mouth piece.
Where did you get it?
I would like to get one too
@Vapor_Eyes Thank you so much for this link, just flipping around the restrictor disc has re-invigorated my love for the flip brick, i think i may be putting off that runt purchase after all! i had no idea it would change that much but it's seriously night and day. Before, having the disc installed with the threaded skinny end going down to the bowl, i would get some nice hits but even when i was getting it to perform really well i'd almost always have small scorched hot spots, and had to basically clear the bowl/ finish the hit immediately after seeing a little cloud starting in the bong and still had hot spots and scorching pretty regularly. Now with the restrictor disc flipped so the skinny bit is pointed up, it's like i've added an extra half a foot to the airpath. Much slower more controllable hits, and i can really milk my bong up and not worry about combustion! blowing clouds that rival some of my ecig set ups and no scorches on the avb! If kenny or anyone from SBL is reading, you should ship the flip bricks with the disc installed this way! it lets you use a bigger flame too, just adds a lot more room for error without being so frighteningly close to combustion all the time. To, anyone else having a hard time with the flip brick, i would strongly recommend trying this tiny little modification, just make sure to do it when your intake glass is cold so you dont burn them fingers
