    Is there a new Grasshopper version being produced?
  • spider

    yes, there is a new io grasshopper right now that is accepting pre- orders, they also are transfering to a new website as well.I decided to grab a current og version and it's been nothing short of on point!!!

    Cool thanks. My main concern about the Grasshopper is that I hear the vapor can get hot and harsh when using it straight, without a water bubbler.
    Also I heard the battery life sucks!
    I'm hoping for there to be improvement with these in the new model.
    I just checked the new website and it looks like they are claiming it will. I guess we'll see?..

    Battery life is better /w the new version og units, and the silicon mouthpiece really helps against those high temps. I honestly got no complaints on the hopper, it does work nice in a bubbler/bong j - hook and natively, you just have to be vigilant on your temp and how you want it.

    That's good to hear. But even with the silicon mouthpiece how about the temperature of the actually vapor. Isn't the vapor itself still hot especially after a few draws?
    I think I'm probably going to wait for the io because I'm sure it will even be better. And I'm in no rush.

    I don’t normally pre-order but I have a lot of trust in MaxVapor’s technical and management ability.Baron23

    Man I'm starting to wonder about maxvapor...they have been supposedly slowly shipping for the better part of 2 weeks and not one person has posted about recieving anything on FC. They also use language like "within a week or so" or "if all goes well", same language HL used for years. Any worry on your side or do you still have the same confidence. :)

    I checked out the feeder and may look into that more later but looks just a little high maintenance compared to the funnel.spider

    It is but a funnel requires zero maintenance so that’s a little unfair. I’d think of it more as a matter of ‘swings and roundabouts’. You can load a hopper quicker with the feeder that you can with a funnel but the time you save will have to be reinvested in cleaning. That’s a trade off I’m happy to accept as it only takes a couple of minutes to clean every 30 - 40 loads plus there is another advantage, which is the quality and consistency of the ‘pack’. This appears to be much more even than can be achieved with a funnel and leads to a better extraction in my experience.

    nah, Max is good, IMO. I’m not worried personally.

    If you are very upset, he responds to his thread on FC with some alacrity.

    That's good to hear, I'm not mad, I just dont really believe what they're saying. Someone should have received their unit if they were really shipping for the past few weeks. I lurk over on FC but I just can't bring myself to join a forum with such a juvenile name. Sounds like a angsty 13 year old named it. ;)

    Do any of you guys find it helpful to stir your hopper between hits?, it almost seems like this one doesn't need to be stirred, but I was just curious if any of you guys have benefited from doing so.

    nah and even at the end, to get one last hit out, has been a waste of time to me.

    I don’t stir the GH. I will, when in the mood, Jack the temp up to 5 to finish it off. But I generally run in 4.2 but that’s hard to translate from unit to unit.

    At least so in the past.

    Awesome advice! Thankyou,
    I couldn't agree more W/ the stirring, I have such a habit of stirring that it was hard to break it with this one. Plus it makes a mess when trying to poke around I noticed. I also like to use mine in the 4.2 -4.5 radius, also enjoying using it natively lately as well.
  • Baron23

    and one of the things I don’t like about ever stirring a GH is I don’t want fine particles falling through the oven screen.

    That’s where the temp sensor is and is kind of known issue.

    They made some sort of change w the IO but??

    But this is why people say to blow compressed/canned air thru the intake holes if your unit gets squirely and maybe runs cool.

    Sometimes blowing it out helps.

    As others have said... no.

    There is often a hint of green on the very top of the bowl when the rest of the load is spent but there isn’t anything to be gained by stirring in my experience.

    appreciate the input,
    The first couple of days I would stir on my last hit to see if I could squeeze more out, but your correct, it doesn't make any difference. I'm so use to stirring my convection vapes that it was a little hard to break the habit w/ this one.

    I've seen it get some grief but I like it, the taste I think is underrated and as a one hitter I'm not sure there's anything with batteries that's better. I'd be interested in trying this upgrade.
