I'm looking at switching over from smoking (water pipe & Bowls) to vaping. I've narrowed my search down to 4 vapes that are in my price range and that I think would be good
for keeping in my man cave for when I rip movies tv and video games. I don't want to attach this to any piece or have to fill up a bag. The 4 I've narrowed down to are the
Enano, da buddha, the silver surfer, and the plenty. Out of these 4, what do you guys think would be best for the transition to vaping? Which one is the healthiest?
This thread was posted a while back but I know when I made the switch I was on the fence for a long long time and just wanted someone to tell me that I could make the switch. So I'll chime in.
Firstly, if I can do it, any one can dude. I smoked joints daily for 18 years, normally about 2-3g per day. I fully switched within 2 weeks once I begun. Feb 2022 never looked back, lungs much better now.
As for the vapes you are deciding between. They aren't all overly comparable.
Two of them are quite similar though, the da buddha and the silver surfer.
I actually have a silver surfer. Personally it's my least favourite...but also my favourite vape. The reason it is my favourite, you can push it right to the edge with this vape, you can get your weed as close to combusting as possible and fast...but that is also the reason it is my least favourite...it's really easy to combust. I was using it a few days ago for about a week and all was going OK, I thought I had it nailed again and then I combusted again couple nights ago...when you've been vaping a while, you wont want to combust, it's horrible
I don't have any experience with the enano.
I don't have experience with the plenty however I do own a mighty+ so I do have experience of storz and bickel products and have a pretty good idea of how the plenty would be. And therein, I expect it will do the job very well...but only to a point. Storz and Bickel are quite conservative with their temps to fully avoid any chance of combustion, but in my opinion, they don't quite push far enough. The Mighty is a great vape, but a nice dynavap hit after a Mighty bowl will really set the mood.
Desktop vapes seem less hassle than portables but honestly I find using my 2 desktops more of a faff than using my portables and as such use them less. Also, more stirring required, most portables don't require much or any stirring. Much less of a just pack a bowl and vape like having a joint, although can be comparable to a .... hit.
As far as not wanting to attach it to a piece...I would recommend it. Vaping is drier than smoking, water does help. I use a .... for most of my hotter hits which is where the real fun happens. Although not always with water, dry bongs are also really nice with vaping. Water takes a bit of flavour away but does cool nicely.
For recommending a vape. I'd have to recommend more than one. Most good brands are fine and you'll be good to get started with nearly any vape...but spend some half decent money. The Silver surfer is good sort of territory as far as cost etc, although it's quite an old vape too now. I have an Arizer EQ, Silver Surfer, Mighty+, Davinci Miqro and a Dynavap. They all have pros and cons but if I had to live with just one, I would probably go with the Arizer as its the most versatile.
That being said my daily drivers are actually my Mighty+ and my Dynvap. Every vaper should have a dynavap, they're great...but hit it through a .....
Personally I started with a portable, my first was a Healthy Rips Rogue until I dropped it, it did the job alright and it started the passion which led to all the rest so you really can start with pretty much anything...as long as its convection.
Check out Troy and Jerry Think Dank on YT, they are great with their reviews and vape knowledge.
