I am really enjoying this banger with a plain lighter. Nice easy hit. Not hot. Real nice taste factor. You definitely need to keep it clean but it cleans real easy with a quick dip in alcohol and a swap with a Q-tip. I have little "drops" of rosin about the size of the little candy "buttons" that used to come on the long strip of white paper (if you remember these you should be dead by now. LOL) on my silicone cup and I can place a little drop into the banger and heat it up just to the smoke point and get a great hit. However, afterwards, I need to put a cover on the top of the banger to stop the excess smoke from wasting. Then, a second hit finishes it off. What would really be awesome is a banger with a flip-top lid. Nirvana, for sure. Thanks again, all, for the tips.
