Is Sticky Brick Labs New Runt Worth Having?

runt vaporizer sticky brick labsFresh out of Sticky Brick Labs workshop. The Runt vaporizer. This new addition on first appearance just looks like a smaller version of the OG Brick. And in essence that is what it is. But the Runt does have a few other differences in regards to design.

One feature on the Runt different from any other sticky brick is how itrunt sticky brick labs vaporizer pulled apart all hold together. This one utilizes a tongue and groove set up as well as magnets. Compared to the OG Brick for example which has magnets that hold the herb chamber and flame intake together as well as separate magnets that hold them both to the mouthpiece brick. While it is nice to have the added magnets to really hold the sticky brick together tightly. The combination of tongue and groove with minimal magnets enables effortless removal of the intake brick. This makes emptying and loaded the chamber just that little bit easier.

This might look like something hardly worth mentioning, but it is these little design features that make the runt such a well refined a just plane nice vaporizer to use. Previous sticky brick models have a little ledge that steps down into the herb chamber. And herb always gets court on this edge. Just another reason why the runt is a great go to vaporizer for no hassle vaping.

These new restrictor disks will now be included with all sticky bricks going forward. And the difference from using them and not is a very different experience. Probably the biggest change that has happened to sticky brick performance since their birth. 

The restrictor disk increases consistency by regulating the amount of heat going into the herb chamber. Compared to using a sticky brick without you will find that a larger flame will be required but the biggest difference will be that it is a lot less likely that scorching will occur. Over doing it is still possible but is a lot less likely and is just easier to use once you get the hang of it.

Difference in performance

Each sticky brick has its own characteristics. But for the most part all sticky bricks have similar traits. If you are lucky enough to own multiple sticky bricks you will likely easily tell this differences and you will be able to appreciate these characteristics.runt junior and og sticky brick If you were to put the runt alongside other sticky bricks you would stick it right in the middle of the OG Brick and Junior Sticky Brick. The Runt's vapour is smoother then the Junior but not as smooth as an OG. It does not come across harsh for most users but you do feel the warmth of the vapour on your throat as you inhale. This may tickle some sensitive throats out there but personally this trait makes the runt one of the most satisfying Sticky Bricks to use. 

As far as comparing to other vaporizers of different brands. I can honestly say potency and performance is only limited to your technique and there isn't any other vaporizer that I have used that I would say is more powerful. The Runt and all Sticky Bricks for that matter are king when it comes to performance. 

So Is The Runt Worth Owning

 100% YES. Initially I thought there might not have been a need for another sticky brick in the lineup. My mind was immediately changed as soon as I had one in my hands. There is more then enough difference in design, performance and characteristics. That even if you had any other sticky brick in your collection adding a Runt could only be a good thing. Pure pleasure at your fingertips. 

Does The Low Tech Sticky Brick Hold Up Against High Tech Vaporizers

Sticky Brick Labs

You mite wonder given the advancements in herbal vaporizer technology, could a vaporizer that involves such basic tech that has been around for over 50 years come close to the performance that is produced from such vaporizers as the mighty, firefly 2 and other cutting edge vapes.

OG Brick Vaporizer by Sticky BricksThe answer to this is very surprising. The Sticky Brick Labs range produce some of the most potent vapour I have ever experienced. It does hit a little hot but the vapour production is on another level. You can expect great performance from all Sticky Bricks. That is clear now but like most vapes it has its pros and cons. And while I believe everyone should own at least one Sticky Brick. Should you actually choose this over it's more advanced counterparts.

Forever Yours

The basic design of the Sticky Brick has one clear advantage over all high tech vaporizers. That is that their is very little that can be broken on this vaporizer. Only glass and this can be easily replaced. And with a lifetime warranty on the hardwood body the Sticky Brick is yours for life.

True On Demand Convection Heating

The Sticky Brick as you may already know is powered by a butane torch. As fast as you can pull the trigger on your lighter is as fast as you will have heat. There simply isn't another vaporizer out there that can better this heat up time.

All Sticky Brick vaporizers are made up of hardwood blocks that are held together by strong magnets. It is an absolute joy to pull apart and snap back together. This is a vaporizer you may find yourself pulling apart and putting back together even when unnecessary. 

Woodtastically  Beautiful

There is something about the natural material of wood that breaths a unique character into each and every sticky brick. It feels great in the hand and you can be sure your sticky brick is one of a kind with no other with quite the same grain as yours.

Strap on your big boy pants the entire Sticky brick range has the power to take you to places you never thought possible. This can sometimes take you by surprise as you may dip the torch a bit lower then usual. If you are someone who likes giant clouds sticky bricks should definitely make it onto your short list.

Respectable Full Spectrum Flavour

With how Sticky Bricks work your herb is in no way heated prior to inhalation. This means that no terps are wasted as it heats up. It is at lower temperatures that most of the flavour is released. This is where most conduction vaporizers struggle when it comes to flavour. Through your Sticky Brick you get all it has to offer. But does however take some skill to find that perfect spot in which the flavours really shine.

Occasional Miss Hits

This may vary from user to user but from personal experience I occasionally will either under do it or over do it. This can be problematic if expected a light hit then all of a sudden your blowing out this monstrous cloud that seals your afternoon to a less productive one. Vice versa the opposite can happen and you can end up blowing out nothing when you are looking for that full noise crazy big cloud that you know the sticky brick can bring. The more you use it though the less this happens. 

Never Quite As Clean As New

Most vaporizers today can easily be cleaned out to near new with isopropyl. With your Sticky Brick you do not have this luxury. Only the glass parts can be cleaned out in this way. Extra care needs to be taken when cleaning the wood parts and is unlikely that a new appearance on the inside vapour path is achievable. This does not effect function and as long as a proper cleaning regime is applied no unwanted taste or flavour should effect the quality of the vapour produced. 

Vapour On The Hot Side

This could be seen as a pro or con depending on your own personal taste. The Sticky Brick originated as a direct draw vaporizer and given you a firing a butane torch straight in at your herb residual heat is still present when it hits your mouth. This is not a overwhelming heat and personally it is refreshing to be able to really feel the vapour you are inhaling. This trait is often seen as a con but is exactly what you want if you are coming straight from smoking to vaporizing. If you do happen to be sensitive to warm vapour then sticky brick have a couple of water filtered options like the Flip Brick, HydroBrick Maxx and the water pipe adapter for the Junior Sticky Brick.

For me personally the cons are hardly worth a thought when compared to how brilliant this entire range of Sticky Bricks is.
