That is a fantastic combo!! Ed's stems are silky smooth
oh buddy, I want to get in bed with one of these for real. Hell, I keep fantasizing of a Mi "backpack" that'd store all like this does. throw in a backpack^^ hell yeah.

re: size in pics, isn't that the nuttiest thing? every vape I've ever gotten looks like the pics i saw online are "enlarged to show texture" haha

why does the webs make it all so damn big? I know how hands work, and proportions, why does this mess me up everytime?

Hmm, I dunno if Ryan is even checking emails at the address I'm sending. Anyone have a current method of contact? No info available on his website

Did you know that Vgoodiez participated in every RBT development ... The Master Beta ... Great sales and service on RBT gear by popular vote
I did! We are lucky to have VGZ taking care of all things RBT, a fitting realization of the Zion legacy: phenomenal vapes now with phenomenal service :tup:

I had my Zion in my backpack and apparently the button must have been held down because I got a dark spot on my wood where the heater is situated. I know that there has been at least one other person with this issue. Everything seems to work normally and I am hoping that it is a cosmetic issue. Can anyone else who had this issue comment if there is anything else to look out for?

If it is still working normally then it is purely cosmetic, there are quite a few in the wild with this outside scorch from what you described. I remember one of the beta team even had it from stress testing that confirmed it was still fine @hd_rider

Good to hear (and thank you for your reply). I’m trying to be ‘glass half full’ on this and convince myself that the scorch mark is part of the patina and a sign of character.

I just wanted to chime in and emphasize again how wonderful this device is. I have had my eye on a Drydrotube for some time, but it has always been out of stock. I have had the original cooling stem from RBT since it came out and the vapor is more than adequately cooled, I still can’t wait for actual dryrotube though...

Regardless, I just felt obligated to say how great this thing holds up over the years. I have purchased many vaporizers since, many of them great. But still this one is special and it’s hard to explain just how great it is unless you experience it for yourself.
Do yourself a face and get a Splinter Z if you don’t have a Zion.

Yeah nothing dethroned my Zion(s) so far, they are perfect for me when at home.

Removing the batteries and charging from the equation also helped a lot. With the power adapter it's always ready and effortless. By the way, I made an improved version of the 3D printed part. If anyone has any interest I'll update the thread in the DIY section.

Curious about "CoolVape" and "regenerative cooling" technologies...

Also at 50W peak it beats the S&B Mighty, with wood, glass, silver, steel...and no plastic!

They say "batteries" plural + replaceable too.

All of this with sustainable wood? Pinch me I must be dreaming!
Were you dreaming?

If we have a Splinter Z and love it is the Zion worth finding secondhand? Or am I getting a comparable experience with the Z?

Ah, the good old days...


Thanks fuckcombustion.com for providing a place to hide out and take and idea into its best possible incarnation with a group of close friends. The exert input early in the design process enabled the rapid evolution of the RBT technology and that spirit of customer involvement still exists today. Many thanks and much respect to both the old and new staff especially those two old salty dogs Pak and Stu for making this bold move to keep the community alive in a new and improved way.

Wow… Zion. The Z-team will always have a very special place in my heart as they gave countless hours of their time and medicine helping to perfect the RBT HSA technology. Maybe things didn’t go that smooth for the Vape Nazi (that'd be me) but with some perseverance less than 100 Zions finally made it to the faithful few that had the patience to wait. Really looking forward to building the Zion M’s for the handful of people that are on the waitlist.

Please stay positive on the RBT threads and address any business related concerns to ryan@rastabuddhatao.com as this thread is for sharing user experiences and will not be used to address customer service issues. Please learn the rules and follow them and help make the moderators job easy. These people give their own valuable time out of love for this community and their job CAN be very time consuming. They deserve for us all to act with love and respect and be on our best behavior as payment for giving us this gift of fcombustion.com.

The original Zion thread is a personal favourite and a must read IMO. You can pretty much learn how to use convection vapes just by reading the posts there. Not sure if anything's going to be preserved, but I did save all of the images I could the first time I went through the thread. A bunch were already offline by the time I got to reading, particularly the early stuff hosted on MediaFire:

Zion Gallery

BTW @Rastabuddhatao, are MrPeanut and theKarmaWhore doing well? I remember reading MrPeanut needing to quit cannabis due to upcoming major surgeries. Hats off to those two and the entire Z-team. My Zion still gets used on the regular.

@seki thanks so much.... I thought all that stuff was lost. Karma and MrP are doing well. Mr. P is still waiting patiently and is on the list for a new heart and kidney. Man... those days feel like a million years ago.

To take a moment to take a trip down memory lane and help facilitate archiving the best parts of the old threads RBT is having a contest... details are on IG for now unil the Contest page gets set up here. It's pretty simple in that it is a cut and past from old FC to New FC of something funny, memorable, milestone, accolade, criticism, tech tip, wood porn or nerd candy and post it here and you will be entered to will a Milaana 3. Drawing in 6/13 live IG.

Here are a few of the Vape Nazi gems of days gone buy... Sorry all... with bombs going off all around me I did the best I could... History of RBT video coming soon and my hope is a bit of behind the scenes might make shed some light on my temporary insanity :)


As for the out of order shipping, I think the Soup Nazi reads how many times you complained and for every time you did, you were put back right at the end of the queue!

Vape Nazi: "No Mi for You!!!"

Also if that screen was glued in I feel our self proclaimed materials nazi @KeroZen would have had somthing to say about it!
Dont want to disagree with your facts. I've just heard different facts

@nondarb what's happening to you sounds like a fucked up episode of Seinfeld...not the predictable soup Nazi one, but a new episode; unique to this experience...lol

Don't let the squeaks drive you mad even if you can't silence them all. Kill them with kindness. I'm thinking some won't get the humor in the "soup nazi" Customer service model. Personally I love it!

Don't let the bastards grind you down!
