Thanks !!The Ardent is also made like carp and not worth that kind of money..BUT if you want perfectly decarbed weed/concentrates..I know of no other choice ATM..EXCEPT the new Levo which has a decarbing function built in (never tried it as mine still works)..That is $350 and they are also made like crap!
Unfortunately until someone comes out with good products that are built well..they are the only alternatives.
Usually Ardent has a $30-40 off coupon on their site (or google for it). They screw you over and want 3 weeks for free shipping, but will ship priority for another $25! (I hate that, but they have the product).
I am decarbing an ounce right now..It took 2 runs in the Ardent and my Levo original is on hr 5!
