If you’re feeling the heat this summer, that could well be the fault of the latest product drop from our friends at A Friend Indeed!
That’s right – something big just hit Australian shores (just in time for Christmas), and we’re extremely excited to share it with you.
Dropping the Anvil
The Anvil is an extremely apt name for this beast. After all, the sheer weight of this product’s impact on the global cannabis scene is already at an immense magnitude. This little underdog is disturbing the market and perhaps even threatening to unseat Dynavap – the long-established leading manufacturers in the mechanical dry herb vaporiser space.
Why is it so good? Well, for a full breakdown, you should really check out our 13 minute video review, where we go in-depth on each and every minute detail. Nevertheless, we’ll give a short summary here.
This absolute unit features precise airflow control, along with a unique CopperCore coil technology. With the chamber being composed of a precise mixture of stainless steel and copper, the Anvil utilises both convection and conduction vaporisation methods to offer a more even and accurate temperature distribution – up to 25 times more efficient than its competitors, according to Vestratto themselves (whether you take them at their word is up to you).
If all of that wasn’t enough, this is a medical-grade device that heats up in less than 40 seconds, only needs to be heated once for maximum effectiveness, and can retain heat for very long periods of time thanks to its internal thermal battery – reducing the need to reheat your device and eliminating the requirement for charging.
Regardless, there’s no denying that the Anvil takes portable vaporisation to the next level. This is a device that is 100% sourced and manufactured from within Canada – and the build quality is insanely good, not to mention its added functionality. This import from our northern brethren is promising to spur a revolution in the design and functionality of mechanical stainless steel vaporisers – and it’s looking damn good while doing it.
Highlights of the Vestratto Anvil
It’s an understatement to say that the Anvil is an extremely compact, modular and versatile device. In these respects, it exceeds all expectations we could throw at it. With three different bowl sizes available to choose from, and a range of applications to meet your specific needs, you’re completely spoiled for choice.
It’s a vape that is perfectly capable of hitting like a bong. We repeat: it’s a vape that is perfectly capable of hitting like a bong! We’ve only been waiting on this since the invention of the dry herb vaporiser – no big deal or anything…
The Anvil’s 0.2 XL chamber, coupled with its ability to attain the maximum extraction from the very first draw, practically allows it to rival the density, strength and impact of any glass piece.
It’s even water pipe compatible – sliding straight into a 14mm Female SG to deliver what we believe might just be up there with the milkiest vape hits on the planet.
With that said, this device can also facilitate a much softer and beginner-friendly vaporiser experience, thanks to the inclusion of the smaller 0.05 bowl, or when paired with much lower dosages and shorter draws. It really accommodates pretty much every kind of cannabis user you could think of.
A Flavour Explosion
If there’s one thing we can say for certain about the Anvil, it’s that it is pretty much guaranteed to satisfy your tastebuds with its ability to extract rich and decadent flavour profiles from your buds. When it comes to extracting tastes and aromas, it’s essentially the best device we’ve ever used to date.
Seriously – it’s enough to convert me from ever sinking cones. After all, if I can get the instant satisfaction of hitting milky clouds from a glass piece while retaining the raw efficiency and complex flavour profiles that are only possible with a vape, then why would I ever look back?
I’m a born again vape-head. I see the light – and the light is the Anvil.
Rating and Summary
Our hand has been forced. We have to give this thing a 9.5/10 – it’s nearly perfect, with only a couple of minuscule flaws holding it back.
We can only really nitpick when it comes to the Anvil – stuff like ‘it’s expensive’ (at $409.99, that’s a fair enough take), ‘it doesn’t have a cleaning implement included’ (slight inconvenience at worst), and ‘you have to use a butane lighter’ (okay, that’s a bit bothersome I guess?) – but none of this really takes away from the fact that it’s pretty much everything we’ve ever wanted from a medicating tool and more.
If you’re on a quest for the ultimate hard-hitting vaporiser experience without the usual compromises associated with dry herb vapes, the Anvil is the one you’ve been waiting for. This little beauty is perfect for people who want a quality way to medicate on the go.
If you ask us, the Anvil is a paragon of workmanship that does everything it can to live up to its name – which is why we’ll recommend it to anyone. This thing has the FAB Seal of Approval. We’re so excited to see it reaching Australian stores, and we couldn’t be more stoked to share our glowing review with you.
If this device speaks to you on a spiritual level, to the point where you need to pick this bad boy up, you can pretty much only purchase them from our friends at A Friend Indeed. That’s right; it’s an AFI exclusive!
The good news is we’ve heard word that any purchase of the Anvil from AFI will net you a sweet 40% discount on select glass rigs and Vestratto accessories, for a limited time.
So, go nuts! It’s wise not to delay. Not only is the holiday season fast approaching, but we have a feeling there will be high demand and limited stock available.
