Attention all heavy users!!!!
Anyone who has the Alpha core.
Does anyone load .25 or so to get huge rips?
If so, how well does it work?
I know this is more of a micro dose vape but im wishing the Alpha can put out some power?
.25 is indeed a lot of herbs for a log vape!
I wouldn't say it would be something you would do frequently with a stem, since those kinds of hits are hard to take without water cooling/moistening the vapor. But it can fit in the oversized Nylon Direct stem, by adjusting the basket a bit deeper from the "standard" position.
Now, if you are using a water tool, the chamber size of the XL 18mm NonG can take those kinds of loads but you would most likely need more that one cycle to fully clear/extract that chamber.
The alpha works quite well with small loads as well, but it really shines when paired up with water and a little bit more material.
Even with that in mind, .25 is two to three times more material than I would normally use with the Alpha OS stem/NonG or the XL NonG.
Here are some pics the alpha stems:
The first DirectDraw and NonG from the left are standard sized ones for comparaison.
