Wow, I still need to get brave with my handcarved and a torch. What lighter do you use? All of mine don't like being inverted.

It's hindsight, but you could have probably saved the important components and DIY'd it. But it doesn't matter because now you have a bronze sherlock and the VG is not an expensive vape at all.

Hey, just an update.

I've been out of town for a bit, taking care of family business, and I was space limited in my travels. Brought the Sherlock with me, and a Dynavap M as a backup. The first several days, I used the Sherlock exclusively, and discovered that while I fairly quickly got the hang of it(with both soft flame and torch) it just doesn't seem to suit my vaping style. The "muscle memory" from decades of dugout use is just too strong.

Spent most of the last couple weeks hitting the M natively. Seemed like old times.....

I came across an electric lighter that I think has some possibility in terms of usage with a Vapor Genie. I was wondering if anyone with VG experience could chime in with their thoughts on whether or not something like this could be viable to use? My main concern is potentially the arc hitting the stainless portion of the bowl causing damage to the lighter:

Yes, it's been tried (by a fair number of folks). And no, it doesn't work. These guys provide a tiny percentage of the heat needed. Enough to trigger combustion, but the combustion has to add the additional heat needed to get to vaping temperature. Consider how small the battery is?

Not to worry, though, I seriously doubt such hitting metal would damage the lighter.

Regards to all.

Yeah, nope. LoLz :razz:

I'm torn between the Spiral Walnut Hand Carved and the Bronze Sherlock.

Having both, I strongly recommend the Big Bronze one. It's my 'go to' VG, I haven't used the Walnut one in a year or more. The Bronze one is cooler.....both in temperature of use as well as being the other kind of cool.....

Regards to all.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Thanks for sharing your thoughts :tup:
It's out of stock now, unfortunately. I guess I'll just have to wait.

Man this thread brings back memories!

I started with the classic VG and turned my buddy on to it - its still one of his faves. The last one I had was the SS Coil and that thing is a banger!
I might have to get another one in my rotation :D

Glad to see they are still kicking!

The bronze sherlock is a great piece of equipment. I was lucky enough to snag one on a whim a few months ago.

After using the bronze version i'd never go back to my wooden version. The difference is quite noticeable and the experience is far superior in the bronze unit.

This is nice of them.
They offer free screens whenever you need them, and don't even charge shipping for them :clap:

Since nobody mention it... the Glass Bat is amazing, I have a Classic and a Coil but the Glass Bat is my favourite. Especially using it with a 2 flames torch, this sort of torch provides a faster heating but the best part is the added turbulences this 2 flames brings on the table... this is means more efficiency, bigger hits and less stirs... that's a fun vaping tool!

Man, I just picked up a SS Coil for nostalgia sake, and its truly like riding a bike.

3+ years away and I can rip that thing (with zero combustion) with a lighter or a torch.

I've always kind of compared my VG(s) with my other 'auto-pilot' vapes - Its akin to driving an automatic transmission vs. a manual. You never really forget ;)
