Ice and water
nice, do they make them that you can adapt it or did you mgyver it up?vaporcloud said:I have converted my VG to a bong setup that uses water and I have no issues with it. It works the same way as a bong except you have to draw a little slower and longer to ensure the heat is drawn through the herb rather than a quick lick of the flame when combusting. The vapor passes through the water but the technique is no different with or without H2O.
I will say though when there is water, the drawing in of air does of course create bubbles so a bic flame sort of does a little dance instead of being pulled directly in. Even though this works fine I do prefer a torch flame and aim it at the VG flame filter. The bubbling air intake has no effect on a blue flame.
A very cheap modification at that. ~5$The VG requires you to modify it to be easy to use with a waterpipe.
Thank you, that clears up the issue with the creation of vapor. I'm still not sure about what I would need to buy. If I want to use the VS as a water pipe, do I need to buy a waterpipe and a diffuser, or just a diffuser?SuperTorch said:So to be clear you have to buy a diffuser(perffered) or standard down stem then put the VaporStar in that down stem and place the down stem with the water in your fav water pipe. .
No apology necessary. It's exactly where your post belongs. And as marcuss said, he's open for business. You can even order on-line.runner said:Sorry for bringing up old threads but how long has the vaporstar been out of stock and are they still selling them?
Naw, I never take the top off to stir. I just shake it a bit and tap it against the palm of my hand between hits and whaala, everything is redistributed.SuperTorch said:The Vaporgenie is technically more portable if your talking about a bong, but I don't think of the VaporStar as be "Not Portable" your talking about a few inches and there are tons of cool all glass mini-bongs that are 4 inches and if you want to add tubing to the end of the VaporStar like what is on a whip, then the VaporStar become ultra portable(especially if you cut the tubing to 6 inches). The Genie doesn't stir as easily as the VaporStar, if you want to stir your VaporGenie you have to unscrew the bowl stir and replace the bowl which is threaded(no help). With the VaporStar there are 3 marks on it at 33.33 degrees and after every hit you just rotate 1/3rd and the air turbulence will be hitting a different portion of the herbs. Its designed to open with the tweezers and stir with the tweezers(your stir stick and always on hand) every three draws, but I've did a 6 count rotation and it worked beautifully as well in stoping from scorching while still getting good vapors.
