    Good choice on the Ghost. You will like it for many of the same reasons as the FF2.EasyToSlip

    I agree. I much prefer the FF2, given how/where I tend to vape, but *if* I wanted to use my FF2 as a real portable and not just a "cordless" (mine is use mostly as a desktop), the MV1 has a convenience edge given the bigass battery and the crucible dispenser. But for me FF2 is still the taste king of waterless self-contained pipes. It is just so darn smooth. :starstruck:

    Ironically, my 2nd most used vape (a distant 2nd) is a near opposite in both theory and design, the Omni Xl. When I want taste/smoothness (usually) I go FF2. When I want intensity/efficiency (much less often) I go with my Dyna. And for backpacking (a thing of mine) it is a godsend. Indeed, my statistical pattern seems to be five FF2 bowls to one Omni bowl. In other words, like with tequila, I'm generally a taste and smoothness chaser with randomized intensity hits along the way. :nerd:

    I have not noticed much difference. The most recent software is the same for the Plus and the FF2 og. *IF* you find the FF2 is too restrictive in airflow (I do not) then I recommend the plus as that is the only *real* difference. That said, I removed the mouthpiece ss filter which does significantly but moderately increase airflow with no perceivable particles coming through.

    Also, if you bought a FF2 within the last 6 months, the upgrade is free including shipping. Else, a fee of $30. You do NOT get a new lid, which has nothing to do with changes in airflow. The lid changes are purely cosmetic.

    And it's monday with near no business to work on so it is a FF2 wake and bake moment! Mine will be 2 yo in Feb. No issues at all. It's clearly my favorite vape of all time. :starstruck:

    That's amazing, I like them even more, seems like they know what they're doing !

    Thanks again

    You send in your FF2 and pay them $30. They replace the plate at the bottom of the bowl, and give you a new mouthpiece. After the upgrade your old unit will work with the new firmware that they have for the FF2+, so you can stay current. Calibration sees different too. The new FF2+ has a different lid design. You do not get the new lid. Your upgraded FF2 still works with the old lids.

    Oh really? Didn't really stumble upon this info yet. Do they exchange the whole thing or just do some adjustments?

    I bought it from 3rd party, could be that an issue?

    Thank you very much for your answer...

    Good choice on the Ghost. You will like it for many of the same reasons as the FF2. You can send your FF2 in to Firefly and have them do an upgrade to the FF2+. They charge $30. I would say it is worth it. Improved draw resistance with a new "restrictor plate" and it seems like they calibrated it better. I am enjoying the "FF2+" a lot more after the upgrade.
  • Firefly 2+ is underrated

    Hey guys

    I have Firefly 2 (regular) and I'm happy with it, no issues for me (sure the draw resistance could be better). Is it worth the upgrade to Firefly 2 Plus? I guess I answered my question in my first sentence, but just wondering what's your experience between those two. If it's substantial I'd upgrade since money isn't issue and I'd sell the old one. Maybe it's better to wait for Firefly 3 ?

    Regardless I've ordered Ghost MV1 just to get some other vaporizer to try something new. I like convection more.

    Cheers

    This has been working pretty nice :cool:ssaucyc515

    Yeah, for the FF2, I sometimes don't bother with grinding. Just break off some chunks and mildly press them in the bowl. In a nutshell, gravel not sand.

    Using the ff2 this way reminds me when I'd pour a whiskey, I'd take what I would in 1 or 2 shots and toss the rest and refill with fresh pour and ice if needed.John Cocktostone

    Good analogy. If you want the highest efficiency, the FF2 is not it. It spoils me. I don't want bad tasting hits, so I rarely take them.

    I like it this way. Drop in small nugs. Ran 3 bowls. 1-3 hits and then I toss the AVB in a jar to finish off in another device later.....like I did with my MV1 bud before I learned to use that device

    Nice to see/hear! I know your not a big hitter normally....but try it with double that amount loaded up. You might find it easier to stir/spin/flip. Usually after the first draw....I can flip the hole load out and it stays intact and same shape...then just put it back in upside down and 180 degrees so the dark spot is now on top and to the back. This way, you get more taste on consecutive hits. But that all sort of breaks down after the 3 or so hit as the load gets really dry and does not stick to itself....then a stir too is handy if you want to keep it stirred every draw.

    But if you just need those 1-3 quick draws...your method is solid!

    :up:
  • Firefly 2+ is underrated

    I will try that tonight with some Purple Punch
  • Firefly 2+ is underrated

    yeah. Stirring even with my finger is a little annoying still :lol: if I use it like this I kinda just shake it and it moves the chunks . Honesty this device is so terpy it's not much of a difference. Atleast from what I can tell. It's still as amazing :lol:
  • Firefly 2+ is underrated

    doing bigger chunks of bud? I bet the flavor is goid
  • Firefly 2+ is underrated

    yeah the ff2 is my main concentrate device when I dont use a banger....though i decided to use flower tonight as i have some terpy Purple Punch and the ff2 opens up the back end of the notes on the tongue for me
  • Firefly 2+ is underrated

    very much like Hopper as in both cases my main differences were w the company.
  • Firefly 2+ is underrated

    Oh and happy holidays of course!!!!!
  • Firefly 2+ is underrated

    wow thanks for the advice. I tried finger stirring instead of getting my tool out and its actually a cleaner process LOL. I really like the idea of big chunks I think that would work really well. I think the more I use this the more refined my whole technique and literal hold of the device. I have nothing bad to say besides wishing the bowl was bigger. The battery charger sounds like a good damn punctures 18650 tho :joy: I tried some badder in it and it was as it smelled. It really isint the terpiest concentrate any ways :P I'm gunna give the big chunks a try today! Appreciate you both so much honestly.lvt2b2tefcibjs3f.jpeg
    Oh yes. Like the hopper for me :joy: or should I say us? haha I’ve seen it! I promise! Thanks :) yeah. I got lucky . Appreciate it friend.
  • Firefly 2+ is underrated

    Cheers on being the one to get that. You were lucky that I had to work that night because I was first in line to buy. I missed out by 1 hour. Bad timing for me but I am glad it found an appreciative home. Enjoy!

    EconMan every time I see the word fire fly I think of you. And how you defend this devicessaucyc515

    Ahem! Ahem! I always gave that guy high praise! Sorry, just wanted to play too :)

    Congratulations on your FF2 +!
  • Firefly 2+ is underrated

    Good Luck with your purchase.
  • Firefly 2+ is underrated

    It’s most certainly not the vape for me, but clearly it is for others.

    Always good too keep in mind that one mans food may be another’s poison.
  • Firefly 2+ is underrated

    Spider....that was pretty cool of you to offer such a low price on that FF2+ :ok:

    Sauce......try using bud chunks...maybe 1, 2, 3, pieces. Then you sort of flip and spin the load around the first few draws...then it will be super easy to put the less extracted parts of the load back in the direct air-path (front part of the bowl) to keep the taste going. Then it will slowly start to break up when you try stirring.....and you sort of then fall into the normal bits all over stirring deal....but pending on your sticky quality of your buddies....this can be the key to using flower in the FF2's. I have a dedicated FF2 for flower and one for trates only. Once you sort of get a method going.....you find that you clean up more with flower use. But it is simple to use some of the alcohol wipes to hit the 2 glass pieces and maybe just a qtip or napkin to wipe out the bowl pending on how sticky it is.

    I tried selling it at 120$ and it just wouldn't move, so I bumped it down to $85 and you were the lucky guy, hope you enjoy that, it just didn't hit hard enough for me.spider

    That was a value. :cool:
    I agree about the "hard hitter" with a disclaimer. You can "intensify" the FF2 by cranking up the temp and boosting the calibration 420f w/ 3% will give you an "intense" hit with some loss in taste and smoothness. But if that is what one wants they can get it with the FF2. But for me, it defeats the prime purpose of having a FF2 -- superb taste and smoothness. It is a Smooth Hitter, not a Hard Hitter.

    I have two vapes I use regularly now -- FF2 and to a lesser extent my Omni Xl. They are essentially opposite vapes in just about every way. Sometimes, I get in the mood for an "intense hit" and I'll break out the omni (and always when backpacking) but the FF2 is the driver.

    The "vape scare" has had me pondering the "optimal quantity of hot air in my lungs" and I've decided I want to keep my "intense hits" minimized. I have really healthy lungs and I want to keep them that way. If I want a superhit I'll take a tasty dab. I note my lungs feel good after FF2 sessions and they don't always feel that way after a few Omni seshes. To the extent folks want efficiency, the FF2 suffers a bit here too, but tastiness and smoothness do come at a cost, and not achieving ultra efficiency is that cost.


    Haven't yet :p I have some badder but it isint the best terpy concentrate in the world... Will try some tonight :) I thought about using it as a concen portable too. I've read your comments on how it is your primary portable dab machine :)ssaucyc515

    Small correction. Primary electric dab portable. Nothing replaces a dab rig for me. If I have the option, I want the rig.
    I've dabbed near tasteless THC distillate in it. It sounds hokey, but the "lid reclaim" with concentrates is just a treat -- like getting to lick the cake batter spoon and bowl when you were a kid. Think your trates are all gone, you open up the FF2, look on the lid, and WOW! a fantastic extra hit just from the lid all clean and purified. Hence, with trates, there is very little "efficiency loss".

    They made a great vape and yours for $80 was a deal and a half. I paid $295 I believe :cool:

    I'm glad you are enjoying it,
    I'm more than happy to help you out,
    I tried selling it at 120$ and it just wouldn't move, so I bumped it down to $85 and you were the lucky guy, hope you enjoy that, it just didn't hit hard enough for me.✌⚓
  • Firefly 2+ is underrated

    for sure I'm thankful! i use medium grind right now. I notice uneven vaping but it really isint a concern when the effects and flavor is on point. The no stirring tip is great and I'll try that right now too ;)

  • Firefly 2+ is underrated

    Mighty, MV1 and Dynavap all have abandonment issues since the ff2+ showed up...now my go to vape especially with concentrates...very little odor, so easy to be discreet when necessary...also hitting in the dark is very simple...need a backup now.
