    I did not use the cap on this particular build. The build was just a solid build that mimics the Spheroid build for those who love the Spheroid.
    I have built with the cap a few times and looove it as well. In fact, I will have a build to you with it as well. Q beat me to a build with the cap, mine was just an alternative.
    The fluff isnt as high as it may seem and is relative to it's older little brother. The loops are not very large.

    GP Fam, I would like to follow up on a couple of things with my build and the Heron.

    First, I love the Heron. With the amount of fluff I am using I have no issues with filling it with 4-4.5ml of 50/50 juice. It seems to never run out!
    On my last build I used the loops as seen. I decided to cut the loops a bit off center and leave one side of the 2 strands of ekowool a bit longer. I placed the shorter side into the juice well and threaded the longer through the hole on the top cap as shown.

    NOTE - wrapping 2 seperate strands of medium together and placing two through the cap and two in the well mimics this method.


    Perseas mentioned that the wick dimension through the cap hole makes a wicking difference, and he is correct! So far 2 SnC strands, 2-3mm silica and 2mm strands of ekowool wicks FANTASTIC!.

    One last thing and I will include in blog that has had little attention is the AIR FLOW CONTROL!
    What a great addition.the AFC ring is simple, moves freely but tight enough that it will not move unless moved. The polished ring finishes the base of the Heron off with tasteful beauty. It is amazing and will be loved by the masses of vapors that begged for it on the Spheroid. Although I am in the camp that likes a bit of a tighter draw as the Spheroid offers, I happily set the AFC on the Heron with two of the holes open leaving one closed.


    The AFC needs to be talked about more!
    I am still in love with the Heron and will be picking another up because as Perseas knows D. And she gets her way with GP and will soon be negotiating for mine .

    I agree , I'm finding my preference to be two holes showing.

    I forgot if the SW is 20x1 threading. It was many moons ago when I said goodbye to anything Zen. Kneejerk reaction is that it will not as he uses "Zen Standard" threading. Would be cool to see though.

    Idaho, in the picture is your AFC ring inverted? I was just wondering as the air holes are somewhat obstructed by the ring ...

    No, bad picture angle bro. The holes don't even show when inverted as the slot in the ring is off center by a mm or so. All you can see if inverted is a bit of oring.
