This is an early draft review while I edit more text and photos…
Firefly feels solid and smooth in your hand, but it’s borderline too heavy. It’s like a 1950s electric shaver in style, it looks like a retro mens gadget with its chrome trim and handsome polish. Yeah, I like the way it looks but more importantly I like the simple design behind the looks. The vapor path is unique; I found the flavor of different strains of cannabis to be more distinct when vaporized with the Firefly.
Cleanest Vapor Air Path
The air path is unique in that it’s just a small channel of air between the top lid piece and the smooth, flat steel inside top of the vape itself. The two piece come together perfectly with a magnetic snap, but sometimes you have to shimmy the top piece a little to fit in place. Again, something you’ll get used to, but it takes some time when breaking in a new piece. I found cleaning this to be a snap and I do it often because it’s so visible and accessible. Well thought out for maintenance there.
The downside to this excellent pathway to flavor if you take too big of a hit, that is too large of an inhale too quickly, you’ll easily end up inhaling bits of ground up medicine into your mouth, bleh. I managed that more than a handful of times and each was equally unpleasant. Go slow, don’t rush it, my friends. I found this annoying at times, but the Firefly is more art than science anyway. Again, it takes practice and there’s an adjustment/learning period.
