My EVO just died and I'm in the same boat looking for a replacement. I bought a Mighty+ a few months ago to replace my Ghost MV1 and I absolutely love it. In fact, I am now using the Mighty+ daily since my EVO is dead and it's kind of .. good enough in the hitting department. A little hotter than the EVO since there is no glass path but it hits hard enough. In another thread, I'll post a postmortem of why it failed and if I fixed it (I'm going to open it up).
With that said, I've gone through the giant Github consensus AND fuckcombustion and decided Im going to have to go with the S&B Volcano Hybrid. It seems the closest to what I need in a daily heavy use for 2 people department.
While the Mighty+ is good, I am worried that I'll burn out the battery or something else because of how often we do it. It's easy to clean with the brush immediately method and I end up having to ISO clean the Mighty+ as much as I had to clean the EVO (every 2-3 weeks).
The biggest reason I went with the Volcano was ease of cleaning and the fact that it's really feels like a replacement.
Suggestions from thread:
MiniVAP does not fill the same role as the EVO. It might hit hard, but it's not a 'sit down and session it out with 2 people everyday all the time'. The cleaning is also a huge hassle.
Opinions on the High End ones I rejected:
A lot of suggestions for ecoils with bubblers (Herborizer, etc)- I'm just not a fan of the ecoil. It looks too "druggy" and having a full glass water system seemed messy with too many parts.
I rejected any BATTERY ones. I want a desktop vape, I have a battery portable with the Mighty+.
I rejected all handmade/wood stuff (Collyland Vapbong. etc). It's just not my aesthetic and frankly, I want something that I can buy replacement parts for easily.
7th Floor - I love their stuff. I started with them with the Budda and then moved to the SSV. I upgraded to the EVO after the SSV because I absolutely hated how finicky the join connection was - I want ELBs for the SSV! These things are near perfect and if I didn't also use my thing with newbies who will guaranteed blow stuff into the SSV, I would have picked this.
I looked at the Cloud Connoisseur options but they fill the same issues as ecoils , but no exposed coil.
Ditanium looks nice but when it's between this and S&B, I feel like S&B will last longer.
E-Nano/Underdog: Now this looks like my EVO! Reading about it, this would be the perfect replacement... except the bowls are smaller and the cleaning is 'harder'. This is enough for me to avoid.
PS: A post about too many parts issue - the EVO, has THREE major parts, the glass, the ELB, and the evo base. It's easy to clean up, easy to use, and most importantly, easy to share. The coils are SIMILAR in amount of parts but it's a lot more intimidating. The naked coil is unattractive, you need a stand for it, then you have the full glass piece and the bowl piece. If I drop it, I might burn myself.. or my table.
