Of course you have answered my question and with bonus track!, thank you very muchThis can be done.
I combusted the first time I tried it, as the tip can hold a lot more heat than I realized. But when I dialed back the torch I was able to get a full extraction hit with only a preheat, no torch during hit.
This was very very roasty, very little terp signature remaining. But very sedating and relaxing. I hope that answers your question.
However, in trying this method I discovered a “hybrid” heating method that may be my favorite.
3-4 second tip preheat, then continue torching the threads below the tip while hitting. Butane is not directed down the vapor path, but the supplemented heat gave instant tasty vapor.
This is likely how I will continue use of the vector
It's what I expected, I thought that maybe the plate at the end of the tip would be very thin and would only work well while heating, but from what you say it seems to have a good mass and retains a lot of heat
I like it, it's just what I was looking for, a more resistant metal made Testeur that I can take everywhere. I'm a bit bored of the vapcap and to get an Anvil in Europe is an odyssey, besides I love how the Vector looks. And it seems to give a lot of possibilities, 100% conduction, 100% convection, hybrid...
I want to test it with the IH and more possibilities!
