Half Bowl Converter
Introducing the Half Bowl Converter for DynaVap.
What if I told you that you could increase the amount of time that your flower lasts with one small addition to your DynaVap tip? The Sneaky Pete Half-Bowl Converter is useful to any DynaVap owner who wants to increase the efficiency of their device.
Designed by Sneaky Pete and manufactured by DynaVap, you’re receiving an adapter produced with the high level of precision and quality that DynaVap are known for. The pure titanium Half-Bowl Converter turns any DynaVap tip with an adjust-a-bowl into the perfect half-bowl setup.
While the stock adjust-a-bowl is great, getting your CCD perfectly placed and locked into the half-bowl setting can be time consuming and difficult. You also need a pristine CCD to have the best chance of adjusting your bowl. The Converter quashes all these issues. Just pop in the Half-Bowl Converter and your CCD will easily snap into place. It takes seconds and there is no chance of it coming out until you want it to. Although the Converter fits snug, it's super easy to remove for cleaning or if you want to switch back to a full bowl setup.
The half-bowl position provides better flavour and efficiency as you’ll more thoroughly consume your material. On top of that, you’ll be rotating your material in and out more often, resulting in more green/fresh hits. The Half-Bowl Converter also adds thermal mass to the DynaVap tip which can produce a more complete extraction from a single hit. During in-house tests, we were seeing the biggest DynaVap hits that we’d ever produced. A nice side-effect, for sure.
The Sneaky Pete Half-Bowl Converter works with induction heaters or a torch and is a super inexpensive accessory that will pay for itself quickly. Get more bang for your buck and enjoy your flower longer with the Half-Bowl Converter.
Each Half-Bowl Converter includes a titanium CCD.
BENEFITS OF THE HALF-BOWL POSITION.
CONSERVE FLOWER, MAXIMIZE FLAVOUR
I prefer the half-bowl position because it offers two main benefits, the most obvious one is that you’re using half the amount of flower in each bowl. Consider the already small amount that would normally go into a full-sized DynaVap bowl and cut that in half, by doing so you’re going to start conserving a tonne of flower. The other benefit is that you’ll get way more fresh terpy hits because you’re switching out your load and getting the tasty flavour of fresh flower twice as often. I also find that I get better effects from a fresh bowl.
WHY I CREATED THE HALF-BOWL CONVERTER
I'M TIRED OF FIDDLING AROUND WITH FLIMSY CCDS
WHAT IS THE HALF-BOWL CONVERTER?
A STURDY BASE FOR THE CCD TO SIT ON IN HALF-BOWL POSITION
As you can see, the Half-Bowl Converter is a tiny piece of gear, but it’s going to have a huge impact on how you’re able to use your DynaVap. It’s a precision machined piece of titanium, I had DynaVap themselves handle the production, so it's sized to perfectly fit in a DynaVap tip, sitting exactly below the level where the CCD needs to be to achieve the half-bowl position. It provides a sturdy base for the CCD to sit on, preventing you from pushing it past the half-bowl position, while maintaining all the normal function of your DynaVap. Fiddling around while trying to gently ease the CCD into position is now a thing of the past.
You can use the Half-Bowl Converter in any DynaVap which has the Adjust-A-Bowl feature, so that’s any Titanium Tip, the 2020 & 2021 'M' and the new 2021 VonG. It also works with a titanium or stainless steel CCD. The Half-Bowl Converter will not negatively affect the function of your DynaVap in any way, and you can still use it with a butane torch or an induction heater like usual.
HOW TO USE THE HALF-BOWL CONVERTER
JUST DROP IT IN
It couldn’t be easier to use, with the CCD removed from your DynaVap tip, drop the Half-Bowl Converter inside, with the flat side of the Converter facing downwards into the bowl. It’ll rest there, held in only by gravity for now, so removing it is as simple as tipping the DynaVap upside-down. Then you just need to put the CCD into the tip and push it down with a small tool or the condenser, until it rests in place on top of the Half-Bowl Converter. That’s it, it’s locked in place, it won’t fall out no matter how hard you shake it, a rock-solid solution to a half-bowl conversion that is only going to come out when you want it to.
Removing the Half-Bowl Converter is also super easy, it’s sized so that a DynaVap condenser fits perfectly through the middle, just put the condenser into the bottom of the DynaVap tip, and through the Half-Bowl Converter to push the CCD out. The Half-Bowl Converter may get a little stuck in there if it’s a bit dirty and there’s build-up, but some isopropyl alcohol will quickly remove the build-up and set the Converter free. Personally I just leave it in there permanently, throwing the whole tip, Converter, and CCD assembly into iso alcohol when it needs a clean.
BENEFITS OF THE HALF-BOWL CONVERTER
THICKER HITS AND LESS BENT CCDs.
The Half-Bowl Converter has two unique benefits - one is that you’re going to go through far less CCDs and save money on replacements. The Converter provides a solid foundation that maintains the integrity of your CCD, meaning you don’t need to replace them anywhere near as often. Even if you have a CCD that has been bent out of shape a little you can just straighten it as best you can with your fingers, it doesn’t have to be perfect, then push it down into the DynaVap tip and onto the Half-Bowl Converter with a condenser to flatten it further and lock it into place.
The second benefit, and the most interesting one in my mind, is that the added titanium of the Half-Bowl Converter increases the thermal mass in the DynaVap tip, directly below the flower. Heating the tip at the bottom of the cap, which is where I usually heat mine, is going to delay the click by a couple of seconds, meaning that you’re going to get a hotter oven and a thicker hit. If you don’t want a thicker hit just apply the heat closer to the top of the cap like normal and it’ll mitigate any extra heat you can get from the Converter. Since I’ve had these in stock I have not set up a single DynaVap tip without using one, and I much prefer making use of that extra thermal mass because of what it does to my hits, I just love that extra thickness.
