I'm thinking about picking up an infrared thermometer for use with a torch so I can get more consistent. The reason why the runt is still my favorite vaporizer, the torch is so much quicker. I could get my bowl prepared, grind medicine, etc while the coil is heating up, I'm just impatient.Honestly you guys don't know what you're missing. There is something very special about a torched elev8r, when using a big enough torch anyway. I started with one of the cheap kitchen torches and the time it took was considerable, honestly get a proper torch. If you're expecting multiple hits from one heat up though you'll still be disappointed. That's not what this vaporiser is about.
