    Not sure if this is known but there’s a sale at https://www.rastabuddhatao/
    Milaana v3 is $150
    Splinter v1 $69
    Splinter v2 $89

    I think those are good deals, no?

    What’s the difference between v1 and v2 ?

    It doesn’t concern me that it will be made in China but at the pre-launch price I don’t think it matters either. The wood for the first batch hasn’t yet been announced but I doubt it will be anything exotic.

    No, but the Mi2s are handmade. If there isn't any PH on the site, email him to ask about availability.

    Think of the mi3 as the v1 or v2 splinter. It is a mass made body with a heater. It will not be unique but it is affordable and hits hard.

    I gladly dove in for my first RBT product when the price on the Mi3 was $135. That $100 or so savings is more then enough for me to not think twice about using something "unique".......as long as it performs and lasts well.....that is all that matters for me. Just like my clothes and glass rigs.....i need function not art or fashion...lol

    the wood for the first batch was announced a couple weeks ago. It's being called "cinnamon", because Ryan is unsure of the actual wood species.

    Well said. I always wanted a Milaana, not because of the looks, but because of a performance. Heard so much good stuff about it, but the price was a way too much for me. Here in Europe Mi2 is around 300E, same shit as it was with FF2.. I always try to wait for affordable deal when buying new toys ;) Thats why I got new FF2 for 180E, when FF2+ came out. When I saw release of Mi3 for 125$ + 25$ shipping to EU. Fuck yes, lets roll. Just hope Ryan sticks with good customer support in case of ...

    Are you sure? Ive been following thread at fuckcombustion and Ryan didnt say anything about the wood for mi3.

    it was publicly announced on IG a couple of weeks ago, on top of that i was working for Ryan for a couple of weeks, and was told that by the man himself. It is possible that things have changed since then, but i haven't heard anything.

    I'd sorta just forgotten about it until I got the delay email. At this point, it's like a Kickstarter campaign to me. I'll forget about it again and it'll just show up at some point like a cool present to myself :rofl:

    @MothChewMoth great attitude. While I'm disappointed, its to be expected with any pre-order. It will be fun when you get that email when you least expect it.

    I'm trying to understand how just last week things were on track "for the last week of December" yet now all the sudden there is this issue that they didn't know about and have immediately come up with a fix, but oh yeah more time is needed?

    right? Or why one needs to wait for screws to be made to start assembly, if said screws are interchangeable.

    Or why it's so hard to get a hold of Ryan because he is "traveling". Lol. Ok I'm done now. No more trolling. I just could not resist. This stinks to high hell of bullshit imo.

    but I suspect a lot of these "new" customers are unfamiliar with Ryan's track record regarding delivery of his promises. Shit there would be no Zion's out there if I was not kicking his ass daily for over a year to knock them out. But my handler days are over now.

    Now do wish everyone the best luck with this! I just would not plan on it until March or later as Mark noted.

    sad but true. There are still peeps waiting on their Zion Ms which was also a preorder. SMH. I don't know how you lasted as long as you did as his handler. Lol

    brass screw... i had seen in a video brass tubes also being used under the heater where the heater wires go through. i do wonder why in 2020, safer or less questionable materials then brass aren’t being used in a vaporizer .

    I still love the RBT vapes but the drama has caused me to find other options. Options that perform as good if not better and without drama. Here is the thing, if you are nervous about doing a pre-order on a vape because the maker is known to be hard to deal with and at times dishonest, wouldn't that possibly make you doubt the vape materials too? It could. I am not claiming that anything is wrong with the vapes materials at all. My point is that if you can't trust the man doesn't that shake your trust in the product? It's just not a scene I want to allow in my world anymore. So as my RBT vapes die I will retire them. I broke a Z a month ago and put it in a drawer. It's dead. I pre-ordered a TM as it's replacement. :rofl: I am such a freaking hypocrite! :joke:
    This is what happens when you vape for the first time in 10 days :victory:

    I've always tried to keep my mouth shut on this matter, since I've never used a RBT product. But the reason for this has been watching his interactions with customers. There's a certain "fuck it" attitude that I think is fine if you're an inventor, artist, or craftsman, but not when trying to create a business/brand.

    What really gets my goat, is how he posted his company for sale on the FC classifieds, with no analytical data to back up his evaluation. Not only is that not the place, I have serious doubts about his "strong 6 figure estimate".
