Try to hit some herb with the sublimator with a different herb chamber like a glass bowl w/o thermal equilibrium......wispy vapor like the volcano....put the atomizer back on..get "thermal equilibrium" and u get a thick gas cloud.
I was going through an ass ton of ganj., and wasn't getting the high I wanted. Got the sublimator. And .1 of a gram got me and my homies highshool high. And it became my daily driver since. Then got an evo, vrod,showerhead fp, snail saphire halo, mighty, sticky brick, davinci iq, hot box enail w/ herb oven, cfx, dynavap, .......and still had to go back to the sublimator. I think that's what Steve the marijuana man figured out that's why he sticks to the sub.
I think u gotta change it up, if hardcore smoker, to keep from getting tolerant to a certain type of vapor/smoke.
Now i want a Sublimator in my life... there has to be a point, as much as it gets criticized, no one questions that it hits hard(est)... that would be a good marketing speech for sure :-)
The Vapecritic recently tested the new Digital Herborizer Ti and he said it is very close to the Sub in vapor quality and effects. More so than the FP, but far far smoother, tastier, easier to use and safer as well. "Sublimatoresque" he called it. Only mentioning.
Yep, the Herbo Ti hits harder than the SH, at least more sedating. Therefore it's my bedside table desktop. And it's more tasty IMO.
and also a (digi) TI.... my wallet hates FC :-) - you are good sales persons too...
See this is exactly why I want to know more about the process going on in the atomizer. I'd love it if someone more tooled up than I machined a custom atomizer for the FP out of stainless that uses its own coil and a narrow vapor path to get that same pressure and heat, just to see if it has a similar effect to the sub. Would be an interesting experiment for sure. Would certainly take a lot less time to reach "thermal equilibrium" as well.
...This! Would love to try this out! Perhaps a narrow(er) Bowl would be enough, still possible to preheat with the FP.
Vapor Path and Open Airflow vs. restriction is a very interesting point with Vapes in my opinion / experience. I think the often used "as open as possible" paradigm is not the last word on that matter. The FP is already on the right track with the Carb Cap.
Back to the sub: I really hope it comes back and gets widely available, even if its not for everybody. It marks one extreme of the Vaporizer universe which is reason enough.
Have a great day!
