I hope you recoverd and were able to get off of the couch after that herb/dab hit! — Baron23
I do still want to put together one of their rosin presses I just don't know how soon I can do it! — VapeCritic
Now, FlowerPot....I have the Shower Head version (SH) as I really will only use this for flower. I have some GREAT enails (D-nail Halo and Liger) and the "oh, I can now do a double decker hit" is really not my thing....to me, its sort of a novelty. Vape or dab, pick one! LOL
Now, as I see that you have seen in the open thread...the only difference between Pan Head and Shovel Head is exterior aesthetics.
Now, I have two types of Shower Head bowls....the OG (which is just the same one piece bowl for the Flower Pot) and the two piece Pan Head which was made into two pieces to alleviate issues with male Ti joints sticking in your glass (for me, every time but once it cooled of it came out easy...every time).
I actually didn't mind the sticking as I use a drop down and the drop down was a good handle for the bowl when emptying (shites hot, mate!).
But, I got an early two piece Edwyn was selling and some of use had issues with air leakage (and a LOT of issues with how Edwyn initially handled that on the forum....its there if you care to look, I would waste the time, though).
This has been resolved and I would recommend the 18 mm...either Pan or Shovel.
Now, the Pan/Shovel have a 2.5 mm deeper set of the screen in the bowl which was requested by users (not me, I prefer small bowls and just reload until I'm satiated). To compensate, I jumped my temps up about 25 degrees or so. No biggy.
The Ti carp cap is a must...this one:
I bought the SS scooper handle from him and like it a lot. But, if you already have a scoop that you use, not necessary.
I did not, and will not, buy controllers and coils from Edwyn. For reasons of his own (he has stated its a better connector) he doesn't use the bayonet type XLR that's become the defacto standard (with D-nail pinouts). He uses a screw on type and I will not lock myself in on a proprietary coil connector.
I tried and tried to convince him to change it, but alas no so I do not recommend him for that part of the kit.
I do like Auber very much, controllers and coils (and the Georgia based company also).
Now, the SH hits like a nine pound hammer. You can cash loads in just a couple of thick draws, if that's what you want and most do. Or, lower the temp, don't cap, and you can stretch a bowl a bit. But functionally, its terrific.
I live alone but still do not feel comfortable leaving a rig set up in my dining room, etc. So for me, using the SH is a set up/tear down routine. I just mention this in case this would be a consideration for you and your circumstances. — Baron23
I got my flowerpot in December and have barely used anything else since. I’ve even found myself packing it up with a 18.8 bit of glass to take to mates houses instead of using the portables (mv1, mighty, source nail and even the more portable plenty). I’ve never hit anything that can achieve the level of vapour density I get with it (I’ve tried the sublimator, cloud, volcano desktopwise) — welshman
