Announcing our Choose Love Contest

Choose Love Contest

Love cannot be constrained, modified or conditioned by anything which exists, for it has the nature of creation.

Love is never dependent on any specific or particular form, detail or quality.

As might be expected from looking at a Launch Box, we’ve done a lot of thinking on the topic of Love. We believe that Love is more enabling of choice than any other emotion. It’s an integral part of the Magic–Flight community and is infused into each product we design and make by hand.

Around this time of year, romantic love—the chocolate-and-roses kind—seems to draw the collective attention, but we want to invite you to take some time to appreciate and celebrate Love in all of the forms it takes. We’re asking you to share how you choose, create, and express Love in your world. To help motivate and inspire you, we’re giving our three favorite entries via Instagram and Facebook their choice of one of four prizes: a Maud-Dib Concentrate Box Kit, or our new bubbler, the Orbiter (coming out soon), a Power Adapter 2.0, or any Launch Box Kit that we offer.

HOW TO ENTER:

After some consideration, share with us an expression of your Love. What does it look like? Does it come to you through music and sound? What words come to mind? Who or what are the things that enrich your life on a profound level?

Examples of creative expressions focusing on Love as the theme, inspiration, or subject include:

  • Language: a haiku, poem, or other creative use of words
  • Visual: a photograph, painting, collage, or other visual representation
  • Sound: an original composition or performance using sounds
  • Surprise us!

JUDGING AND VOTING

The last day to submit an entry via Facebook or Instagram is Wednesday, February 12th at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. Our staff will assemble and judge all entries on Thursday, February 13th, and winners will be announced on Instagram and Facebook Friday, February 14th.

Introducing The Magic-Flight Finishing Grinder

 

Each and every Finishing Grinder passes through sets of hands in order to get to yours.  Watch our artisans in action above.

We have just released The Magic-Flight Finishing Grinder which is special purpose built specifically for the Launch Box. The grinder will come in your choice of Maple, Cherry or Walnut woods. It fits directly over the bowl and grinds dry herbals to a fine powder-like consistency for optimum high performance draws. The grind level rivals that of a coffee grinder but has many more advantages: 1) its small size — very portable, 2) stealth (no noise when in use), and 3) the ability to grind one LB loading at a time (or less!) with no loss.

Our new grinder creates the type of micro-fine grind ideal for use in the Launch Box. It’s intuitive design allows it to perch on top of the bowl of the Box and deposit the ground herbal material directly into your trench for the perfect session each and every time.  Instead of using a shredding technique like the Nano Grinder or other metal grinders, with The Finishing Grinder, the herbal material is pushed against the grinding surface and grated into your trench, resulting in an extremely fine grind, ideal for the MFLB.

In other respects, our new grinder is a bit like our Nano Grinder — very small, compact and similar in function, except that instead of being a shredder, its internal action is more like a grater. By producing a grind particulate that is 2X to 4X as fine, in diameter, there is an increase of at least 10X the surface area, which produces a dramatic difference in the quality and volume of each vapor draw. Launch Box Connoisseurs will definitely appreciate the increased efficiency, quality, and variety of vapor effects that this new tool unlocks in the Box!

The term “finishing” in the grinder’s name stems from a common woodworking term. Finishing is essentially the last set of steps that are taken to prepare a wood for use.  The Finishing Grinder received its name because it offers the highest refinement and the most perfect portable grind currently possible for the Launch Box.

The Nano Grinder is the end of the road for grind fineness from a portable metal grinder, there are no more improvements we can make for it to produce a finer grind. The Finishing Grinder picks up where the Nano Grinder leaves off, for the absolutely best portable grind for your Launch Box.

It is important to note that pre-grinding before loading The Finishing Grinder is only necessary for moist material.  If your material is dry, you can simply break it up by hand and use it directly with The Finishing Grinder. It is imperative that dry material is used in The Finishing Grinder or else buildup and jamming will occur very quickly.  If this buildup does occur, using a Q-tip dipped in 99% Isopropyl Alcohol and scrubbing the grinding surface will quickly remove it.

As with all of our flagship products, The Finishing Grinder carries a Lifetime Warranty.  It comes packaged in a stylish felt-lined tin for ease of transport and storage.
