Sign Up: No fuss, standard registration, no age check or anything.
Ordering & Pricing: Their site has a very limited inventory, it's basically that product with a couple of options as extras. They do have a few other products, but it's a very limited store pretty much dedicated to their main product.
Communication: I sent them an email about a month ago inquiring about bulk pricing, if the unit was any good and there was a possibility of it being cheaper in bulk, I figured we could do a group buy... They never even replied. During the holidays I said fuck it, I'll just order one and see. I placed the order and it shipped swiftly. Once it got here I had some questions for them and they replied swiftly with very good information. I asked about the bulk again and they said sorry for not replying, they had taken my name down, but they were not currently doing bulk and would have contacted me later about it once they figure it out.
Packaging: Zero complaint there, they have their own custom box with an insert so everything stays put, very pro. The whole box is branded, but it was inside a packaging bag that's opaque so it was very discreet. The extras I ordered were inside the box itself, they had extra slots in the insert for all of it. Even came with a little instruction sheet. Top notch.
Products / Photos: The product is exactly as shown on the site, so I won't bother with pics of the actual unit. I was a bit scared it would be cheaply built, but it's really nice. The clamp they use is generic so if it ever breaks, any hardware store will have replacements. I'm a strong guy and it shows absolutely no sign of weakness when putting my full force pressing it. They even recommend using a towel under the bottom arm and putting your full body pressure to it to get a better squish.
The instructions recommended 2 minute of heat and then releasing the pressure. My first squish was done with their exact instruction and ended up being too much heat, the result was smokable, but it tasted quite nasty (burnt abv popcorn kinda smell). It is then that I contacted them for ideas and they recommended cutting off the power as soon as rosin starts pushing out of the bud but leaving the pressure, producing a lower temp squish. I used that method and it worked, but the yield was kind of shit. After messing around a bit, I found that eyeballing it is best, I just leave full heat and pressure for the whole squish, but as soon as there is less being pushed out, I just cut the power and release pressure. I'm getting excellent yields now. I don't have a scale, but I'm getting like green pea sized dabs out of half a gram on some strains. Didn't even expect that much.
Incentive for Customers: None
Incentive for Review: None
Notes: Found a small rebate by googling, ended up costing 222$ shipped all included, with 3 extra silicon containers and 90 extra parchment sheets. I regret getting the sheets, they're just plain parchment, nothing special.
