Hi. I've had my vapor genie for a couple of weeks now. And I have had very little success using it correctly. I think. I do get some vapor clouds at the beginning of my bowl but nothing like the huge clouds that people here have described. And then after a few tokes I'll have little vapor cloud, my mouth will feel warm and dry and it'll feel like I've taken a nice hit but with little to no vapor cloud. I've read this entire thread for the most part and watched vids on youtube on how to use this piece the right way. I've taken out the mouthpiece. I've drawn slowly, drawn the flame faster. I've tried all the different methods described with little success. i might just not like this item as much as others here. after i meet the posting criteria i'll probably sell the piece in that seller thread.
