Weed Geek’s – Magic Flight Launch Box Review

November 18th, 2013 | By

Beautiful things really do come in small packages. At only 65mm long and 33mm wide, it’s not only small but seriously stealthy, extremely light and pretty much the cutest device I now own.

I managed to get my hands on the premium version made of walnut. This costs a little extra but gives an even better look and feel of quality. It really is a well-made piece of kit.
I’ve actually wanted to own one of these for some time. I read the reviews and checked out the competition, unsure whether I would actually use it regularly enough to justify the price tag. Lets face it – if it’s not a pipe, bong or costs hundreds of pounds, I’ts a novelty item! This really isn’t!
First impressions were, “Wow, it’s so small”, and after a quick rumble through the kit content (that comes in a really nice quality tin), I quickly realised the batteries needed to be fully charged, which was disappointing as they take 4 hours from dead and I just wanted to get vaping.

Having some time to spare, I read through the well written manual that’s not some scrap of paper with a quick “here’s your new toy” description, but a well laid out glossy, detailed instruction manual, with hints and tips as well as an interesting back story to the box design, etc.

I also had another look at the multitude of video guides available online including Magic Flight’s own website, which again, is well laid out and full of good information. This video LINK is really easy to follow. Surprisingly, the Launch Box manages to capture the throat hit I didn’t expect from a vapouriser. I’ve only ever used a friend’s Vapir One and it was close to the end of its life. It worked well but had a novelty feel.

The herb for the Flight Box has to be ground to a certain consistency, not too big and not too small. You can buy a purpose-made grinder, but you can make do with a standard small one. The trench has to be filled fully for best results but not packed in; it’s a really thin, delicate screen!

Following the online guides made it simple to use, but even taking a common sense approach will get you where you want to go. The throat hit was surprising, and even after watching the video of the guy spluttering through his instructions, it still managed to throw me off guard it’s that small.

It takes a small amount of herb and doesn’t actually burn in the trench, yet has a decent kick, not like a full on pipe hit, more like a tickly cough.

The taste of the herb is amazing, really enhanced unlike burning, like the smell across the room when someone’s burning a fat one or how you imagine the taste would be with your nose in a bag of fresh dank. It’s a tastes like it smells kind thing. Only at the end of your session does it start to taste like a relit cigarette, but by then its over. Quick, clean and on to the next one.

I’m sure it’s all strain dependant, but I noticed a more uplifting and straight to the point effect than any other method I’ve tried. Lighting one up shortly after just made me want to hit it again.

The Magic Flight Launch Box is beautiful, well crafted, does the job. It’s stealthy and has a no-fuss life time warranty you just don’t get anywhere else, great reviews, a few after-market accessories and it’s really cute. I just can’t fault it at all! You can even cook with the leftover herb!
