The DynaVap HydraVonG is a flexible butane powered vaporizer that is designed to used natively with a water piece or dry. It's the replacement for the older NonaVonG model, and as you can see just looking at them both side-by-side, there is a big difference between the designs.
The HydraVonG I reviewed is the dark wood variant, but there is also a light wood option, and you can get it with or without a spinning mouthpiece. The first thing you’ll notice is the different look compared to the old model which was squared off, this new one has shaping and machining to it that looks more like something you’d see in metal. The feel is interesting and really makes the piece easy to spin in your hand.
You’ll also notice that DynaVap have redesigned the shotgun, adopting some recent breakthrough advances in carb technology. The HydraVonG’s shotgun is angled both vertically and horizontally, enabling you to adjust the airflow while it sits on your favorite water piece. The shape of the new carb changes how much air comes into the stem and makes the air swirl, giving you some adjustability versus the previous simple on or off design. The wood is now finished with food-grade carnauba wax for long-lasting protection.
HOW TO USE THE HYDRAVONG
I prefer the standard sized version over the XLS with the mouthpiece, but both work great dry or with water tools, so it really comes down to your personal preference. When you buy a HydraVonG it’ll come with a titanium tip, a cap, the 62mm stem and a standard condenser. If you already own DynaVap, this new stem will fit with its components, this mix-and-match design is a much-loved feature of the DynaVap lineup. The function is great as a handheld dry piece and it drops snugly into a 14mm water piece, sitting nice and high for easy operation. While I do appreciate the new shotgun design, it is a bit more difficult to find than the carb on the 2019 DynaVap M.
The HydraVonG a cool new update to DynaVap’s “Vape on Glass” VonG lineup. The function of the new design is great, and it's much more interesting to look at and hold. I wish every piece sat as high in an adapter as the HydraVonG does. I like the upgraded air intake, but I do wish it were easier to find by feel alone. Overall, this is a great update and it makes me very excited to see what they have planned for the next OmniVap model.
Keep it green, keep it sneaky.
