Draw resistance poll
Resistance is a necessary condition for a great vape. There must be *some* or it won't work at all. And I mean at all. You can't have a vacuum without resistance.
Let's say I want to take a hot shower, so I hook up the G43's heater into my plumbing expecting hot water. Now if I turn the water on just to"1 drop per second, (lots of resistance), it will actually make hot water for me -- a drop at a time -- but if I open the valve, the gallons of throughput per minute will totally overpower (over drops per second) and the flowing water will cool the heater faster than the heater can heat the water. Ponder this -- it is just physics.
Likewise, a vape with NO resistance would be unusable, so what folks really mean is low resistance. I learned this lesson from the Plenty, perhaps the least restrictive production vape I've experienced. You *can* suck so hard that you cool off the heater on "net", and get a bad vaping experience -- too hot followed by too cold followed by too hot again.
The FireFly2 is a great example. I too judge it slightly too restrictive, but drilling holes into the metal platform is moronic :scream:, and those youtube vids recommending people take theirs apart to clean it are just horrid information, well-intended or not.
But if it was NOT significantly restrictive, deep double-tank divers like me who love to suck air, would overpower the heater and then all sorts of pedantic "technique" discussions could be enjoyed :chin:, and the "perfect moments of beauty" called taste and smoothness would be uncorrelated with this vape.
Here is a "increase airflow" #FF2Hack that is totally undocumented as far as I know.
Beforehand, as I love to preach, the most important thing to theoretically understand about the FF2 is the airflow is OUT of the bowl, not INTO it. So the stainless laser-punched holes in the base are not a traditional "screen" that screens out the flower, but rather are hot air injection ports that vape your bud as the hot air flows OUT of the bowl, along the mirrored canal to the mouthpiece, which brings us to our hack.
Remove the mouthpiece of the FF2. Examine it. You will notice a tiny stainless "micro-screen" whose job it is to catch any micro particles that get through (remember, there is no real screen between the flower and the intake except for this). This is where a more coarse grind comes in. First, it vapes better in the FF2, and second, it has less dust and less micro-particles.
The result is say 25% increased airflow at a cost of only an occasional plant particle entering your mouth. Personally this does not bother me as it is infrequent and is worth the price of a little more airflow.
