VripTech vaporizer and water tool review * 1
    #301610 - 10/22/09 12:49 AM (7 years, 1 month ago)

Hey guys, just wanted to share my new toy and hopefully turn some more people on to the joys and wonders of vaporization.

I purchased the VripTech vaporization kit from the VripTech website, search google (not sure if I can post vendor links...).

The kit consists of a hefty Pelican case.  Inside is the vaporization heat wand, the PerK water tool, a GonG down stem with 16 diffuser jets, the lower bowl and upper chamber bowl.





This setup uses a complete glass vapor setup, (with the exception of a metal screen) which means you get the tastiest, most potent vapor possible!  No more tainted vapor from using whips or dry hits from a volcano. 

The wand has a ceramic heating element encapsulated in glass.  As air passes through a glass vortex around the heating element, air is heated and passed straight through the herb producing vapor.  The wand has adjustable heat settings as well.  The wand heats up, much faster in the glass stand, in just a couple minutes.  It is recommended though to allow 7 to 10 minutes to reach full operating temps. The wand plugs into a standard wall outlet, available plug options are American, European, or Australian :thumbup:







moving right along kids...

Now we have the PerK water tool.  It's a classic beaker type with a bent mouthpiece.  Kinda weird style with the bent tube but it's quite nice.  The PerK features a GonG down stem with 16 diffuser jets to more efficiently moisturize the vapor when passing through water. Then you have the Perk diffusion chamber (percolator) which further diffuses the vapor and creates the perfect amount of vacuum for taking monster vrips.  Also has an ice catch.

As long as you had the right bowl, could you theoretically use this with other bongs?

I think he said he paid about $500 for all the stuff pictured but the vape itself was like 150 :shrug:

Okay sorry for the late response I've been at work all day. 

Let's see here..

81renaissance:  yes all you need is the right size lower bowl and the upper chamber bowl and you're good to go.  I have a 14.4mm.  They should have any size you need.

Keith22: I paid $520 including shipping for the entire kit.  The wand alone is $170. 

*mods, sorry if I'm not allowed to post this, just edit if so..*  you can check out the prices here: http://www.vriptech.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=CTGY&Store_Code=VR&Category_Code=VHW


The heat gun is far inferior than the wand and I've read many reports of metallic tasting vapor.


My opinion on this setup...
It's wonderful, absolutely wonderful for personal use or a small group session.  As you can see there are a lot of parts and it does take time to set everything up and get going, but you are greatly rewarded for this.  If you're a lazy stoner and want to just wake up and reach over to hit a bong that you prepared the night before, this setup isn't for you.  This is also not a good party piece.  Like I said it's an all glass setup so you have to be very careful. 

I would never take this kit to a party.  I get extremely nervous just letting a group of 3 or 4 people use it. 

If you are a medical marijuana patient, this is perfect.  I use this mainly to treat my asthma and it just works wonders.  The vrips are incredibly tasty if you have good medicinal herb.  You can also vape hash if you'd like :thumbup:

Good post.
Thanks for the reply.
I'm still not sure I wouldn't rather spend three hondo on a full size vape, or one of the "purple days" that was mentioned in a different thread, but this is pretty cool looking I gotta admit.

It all really comes down to preference when shopping for vapes ya know.  This one is perfect for my needs, but someone else might hate it.  I've heard very good reports of purple days, nice quality product.

Check out www.fuckcombustion.com for more info on vriptech, purple days, and many other brands and vaporization in general.  If you keep checking around the forum periodically you can get wind of some good deals and be the first to try new releases.  Most of the top name vape brands are active members in the forum.

Do you have in mind what you want from a vape?  Like something on the cheaper side and maybe not the most efficient but gets the job done?  or an all glass setup?  or something portable?...  maybe I can help you find what's best for you.

Find out what size stem your bong accepts.  If it's 14mm, you would need to get the "Vaporization Chamber Bowl Shorty w/14.4mm ground joint "GonG" lower bowl stem" which is $60. So yeah $230 for the wand, bowl and upper chamber adapter.

Fox: I'm looking for a high quality vape, no plastic, for very clean vapor.
Portable would be great if possible, but not a must.
I cannot spend Volcano type money.

In the $300 range, I'm interested in your setup, and in this one. so if you think yours is a clear winner then I want to know.

In the lower range ($200) I like the portability and look of the purple days, but I'm not familiar with the product, and I don't know what the quality is...:shrug: what are your thoughts?

Any other setups that you recommend in the 200-300 dollar range?

In your opinion is the VRip the highest quality in that range, or would you get another if given the chance?

Dude sweet, lol the first thing I said to myself when looking at your pictures was like "I have a case like that for my 45mm camera". Those cases kick ass. They are basically everything proof. 100% waterproof.

Obviously I am somewhat biased, but in my honest opinion this is THE best vape, not only in your price range, but topping all others on the market.

I've been researching and searching for the best vape for about a year now.  The first vape I used was a volcano and I was very unimpressed.  This is what started my research into vapes to find something better.

I say, if you have the money and want a high quality product, get it and you will be more than satisfied.  The higher the quality herb you use, the more efficient this thing works.  You get completely untainted vapor, which is moisturized and cooled... something that most vapes cannot do.  You won't get the weird taste from a whip, or the dry stale hits from bag vapes.  Heat up time is considerably less than most others.

If you smoke a lot, this *SHOULD* save you a lot of herb.  I guess it depends really.  I smoke a lot, but that's because I have a high tolerance.  If I vape an entire bowl from the vrip the you'll see me in the kitchen eating everything in sight and then hitting the sack for a couple hours.  But it's so smooth and tasty that you just want to keep vaping, so you might not save in herb.

I've never heard of the arizer.. it looks nifty.  I probably wouldn't buy it but that's just me.  People that smoke/vape with me call me a pot snob.  Not in a bad way, I just like high quality herb and high quality pieces because it just makes the experience that much better.  If you're like me, you won't be disappointed with the vrip.  If you plan on partying with it and vaping big groups, I would get something more durable and portable.

...this is where the purple days come's in.  It's small, wood and not glass, and I've heard good reviews.  Check it out at fuckcombustion, they seem to like it over there.  From people I've talked to and read about who have or have tried the vriptech, they prefer it over others in terms of quality and quality of vapor.

I wish I could let you try mine, I think that would make your mind up in a hurry :vaped:

Woo! :bigjoint:

here's some reading you can do on a couple other good vapes in your price range.  I haven't used either one but a lot of people like them.
