I recently bought a peak pro, but I can’t always find the best temperature for me, and I don’t want to act like a “noob” in front of my friends LOL.
So I’m wondering what the temperature has to do with the taste and the amount of smoke? At what temperature do you put 0.1g of concentrates at a time? What’s your optimum temperature for normal players?
The economic aspect is wider than the initial cost.
I’ve been sharing the same 1 gram piece of rosin with the wife, both helpers, and a bunch of friends for about two weeks now. It works like a nectar collector, but because the temps are right, it doesn’t burn up more than you need to if used right. Tastes better than the puffco too imo
If you’re married to using your Puffco, look for cup replacements for your atomizer area. I know if I use rosin on the blue setting (which is what you’re supposed to use for rosin…allegedly) I barely get a rip that’ll make my lungs tingle as I like full on scorched earth when I take a dab but when I kick it up to green I get the hit I want, BUT it roasts the concentrates inside. I’ve heard getting replacement cups will help immensely, If I didn’t get a slurper I probably would have snagged one by now
Otherwise if you’re NOT married to de puffco I recommend a cheap-ass rig with large tubing (less air restriction on your hits, keeps the cool air moving and stops your dab from heating up to the point of it tasting like shit even when measured), a chinese-made terp slurper (i’m using a glasshouse, got it for 30 bucks with pearls included…they broke, but still. i’d rather the pearls break than the slurper itself) and a dual laser klein tools temp guy (check the temperature tolerance, the good one goes up to 750f+ and will easily read a banger). Torch the fuck out of it, let it cool to about 500f and by the time you dab it and the concentrates melt in the tray you’re looking at a perfect temp dab. The banger and the temp gun will cost you less than 100 bucks and you’ll always get killer dab rips.
I like to torch my quartz nail until it’s clean and almost starting to glow, then wait for it to feel like the right temp when I hold my hand over it. Swirl some oil around it, cap it, love it. I started with an ir temp gun, but quickly picked up the full analog handmometer skill fairly quickly. It’s surprising how consistent one can be just going by intuition and their senses.
Ceramic/porcelain tipped nectar collectors get torched till about a quarter inch of the tip is orange, remove flame, and hit that shit when it turns white or slightly after. Ceramic is king of the nectar collectors in my book. Enough thermal mass to power through a big hit off a glass or metal surface that would suck the heat straight out of quartz or titanium. Robust enough to torch clean with no worries of breaking. Flavor is clean if the tip is clean.
