Some pro's and con's to think about if your are in the market for a premium heavy hitter desktop.....
Premium taste- Beats them all here in my opinion.
Versatile- can do high temp dense hits or sip the terps away with low temp session style hits.
Design- Classy, beautiful and solid build, Interchangable parts both for the vaporizer and how it works with glass. Nice custom glass that works perfect for the Herborizer.
Expensive- Near the top of the food chain in that department.
Has glass- Depending on the model you seek you can have more or less but the good thing is, it's all available separately. And we ship worldwide from the U.S. btw.
Danger- it's hot but not nearly as hot as the others. I mean that in terms of exposed parts. If you brush this you will feel it but won't get burned like brushing the exposed coil/Ti vapes. I definitely recommend you pick up the Herborizer stand if you don't have something suitable already. The new heat posts for the FP also work as well if you'd like to integrate this into your Flowerpot setup.
Notes: Maybe not worth the price to some, but I have never heard someone that actually own's one say that. Everyone I have sold has provided extremely satisfied customers. I have been around for years and have a huge collection. IMO it warrant's its price and is the premium desktop to own (pending the Sublimator Orion feedback). Can use a fast or slow draw but they will yield different results based on the speed and the operating temp. Made in France. Uses Glass Bowls that seal easily.
Elev8R Enail Mod-
Cost- Least expensive of the heavies.
Versatility- Can easily adapt to a torch driven vape.
Taste- I call this the poor man's Herbo because IMO this takes second place in taste.
Rips- Like the Herbo, capable of big rips at higher temps (over 775 which is really hot but it's the only way to get big rips but will also add to your session time) or lower temps for the tasty session style.
Danger- This coil is straight up exposed and runs hotter than the other vapes if you want big rips. From an ergonomics standpoint it's lighter than the other offerings but it may not sit as comfortable in your safety stand situation depending on the coil and route you use for the stand. Heat up time will be longer. It will also take more heat out of the mass when ripped so back to back rips require a wait to let the heat build back up. Not a super long wait but it goes down and doesn't recover as fast as the completion.
Notes: Again the poor man's Herbo for the lowest cost on the board. Needs a slower draw to get dense hits. Doesn't matter if the temp is high or low, you will just need to slow your draw. Most parts made U.S.A. Uses a glass bowl which seal's easily but can be awkward in changing the bowl.
Heats up relatively quick. Provides very dense hit's. Quality Craftsmanship with high grade materials. In this department, Herbo takes the cake in France and NewVape here in the U.S. Lot's off cool accessories, many of which are interchangeable between other models. Their Enail handles are the best! Taste is good at the low temps. Offer multiple controller/coil options. Capable of dense heavy rips when the draw is slowed a bit.
Danger- This is that hot exposed Ti I was talking about. Touch this for any length of time and you will get a burn and possibly a blister. Cost is middle to higher end. Larger bowls that really do eat weed! LOL You really only need enough to cover the bottom of the screen but even that is a lot and makes microdosing difficult.
Notes- I am not even going to talk about the VRod because IMO the only reason to buy that over the Weedeater is if you are hung up on double deckers or perhaps want to have the capability to do dabs on their own. The VRod can infact do dabs but it's really not the greatest solution and not nearly as tasty as many other alternatives. From a flower standpoint the weedeater outperforms the VRod IMO. That said a bonus of the VRod is it has the same coil and bottom section head needs as the VRod. Converting a VRod to a Weedeater is not too expensive and quick to change out of your are only going to do flower anyway. The Weedeater head is also less weight which is kind of nice. Made in the USA!
Taste/Vapor Density- IMO this has the very best balance of taste and vapor density of any of the heavies. This and the Herbo are my most used and most favorite! This vape can handle whole nug nearly .5g loads and also get down to about .1g ground (in the Lotus WPA hack) if you want to go that route. It extracts like no other vape I have ever seen and I have seen a hell of a lot. Full nugs vaped through and through down to chocolate color crumble in seconds. You get the full spectrum with this vape. It also operates at the lowest temp of all of these yet you cannot overpower this heater. You can rip back to back and still get huge tasty rips. There are butane (SV3.5) and enail (SV6) versions of this.
Con's- Ok it looks pretty rough. It looks like it was built in my garage. It is definitely the least classy looking of the bunch. Cost wise its in the same ball park as the NewVape gear (depending on your coil and controller choices). Heavier to handle which makes an Enail handle mandatory for comfortable handling.
Notes- To me this is the most underrated desktop vape out there. Not enough people know about it. If you are looking for the biggest rips and still some pretty damn good flavor, this might be for you. Made in the U.S.A.
Errlectric Concentration Station- (dry herb coil attachment)
Solid build quality. The controller is on the older side but it's got great build inside and out. Auto Shutoff (options for you to select how long). Coil system. They make four different coils for this system. The dry herb coil which uses separate glass bowls and also allows for double decker's (which honestly is not all that easy or effective when in use). The bowls are similar to the Herborizer bowls and to some degree the Flowerpot glass bowls. Taste is VERY good with this. But its great for lasting taste over a session, not 1-2 hits and quit. This vape is not ideal for that.
Con's- As I said there are four different coil setups but they are pretty expensive when you add them all up. The dry herb nail has no guard (sold separately). That guard only works for their 18mm Ti Nail. Which yes I said 18mm which is the base size for all of their coil heads and frankly is not something used at all these days. Danger- Exposed coils here. Their controller will only take their coil types and their coil types won't work for any other controller types.
Notes- Made in the U.S. there was a time and place that this was at/near the top of the food chain but Errlectric has dropped their focus on the controller/coil market in favor of focusing on other areas in the cannabis space. I love these units myself but I have the privilege of having others as well. For someone looking for a new unit, I would recommend they start with something else. Especially at the premium cost of the Herborizer.
