Sorry fella's, not been on the site too much recently.. Here's the latest update for anyone interested:

"Hey Everyone!

Glad to be back with another little update. The project is going well, and we’re happy to say that we’re still on target for the July delivery. We’ve moved into the new office, and we're in the process of setting up the assembly area. Things have gone quite smoothly with the move, and we’re happy to be here.

Orders on the remaining parts and molds that require significant lead-time will be placed before the 15th of next month. This gives the manufactures the time they need, and allows us to ensure the parts will be perfect. We’ve been spending a lot of time checking and double checking design clearances and compatibility on the Grasshopper.

The software that controls the Grasshopper has also been getting a lot of attention. Like the parts and molds, each piece of software must be checked and rechecked. We've developed a custom testing platform to troubleshoot and optimize the Grasshopper system. Using this platform, we can test all possible functions of the device under a wide range of conditions. Once finalized, our PCB manufacturer will upload it to every Grasshopper.

This is the main focus of the project, as we'll need to have final versions submitted within the next 30-40 days for them to arrive on-time.

Things are looking good and we are happy with the progress over the last few months. Thanks to all of your support, we're as stoked as ever to be working all-out on the project!

Check back on the 1st for another update!

The Grasshopper Team"

So it's been pushed back again.. But I'm as excited as ever! Here's the latest update:




"Hey Guys,



Update day! Yesterday marked our deadline to get all of our final part versions submitted for mass production. Unfortunately, we did not hit that deadline. Some parts still require minor tweaks, and we’re working all-out to get it done. Matt, our lead engineer, has worked the last 57 days-in-a-row and isn’t planning on breaking that streak until we’re done.


I am happy to inform you that we’re still within budget, and work with our manufacturers has been going very well. Keep in mind that everything on the Grasshopper has been designed in-house from the ground up. None of the electronics, design, software, molds or mechanical parts have been outsourced to any other company. We did this to keep the cost low and the device optimized, but it’s been even more time-consuming than we could have imagined. This decision, while a contributing factor to delays, has allowed us to stay on budget and build the device we’ve always known was possible.


This is an exciting stage of the project, as we are in the process of receiving new parts. We’ve posted photos on our instagram, with some of what we’ve received. Those photos can also be found below. There will be much more to come very soon.



Missing our deadline to submit the final parts means we are behind schedule. This is bad news for hitting our estimated delivery in July. We’re continuing to shoot for beginning deliveries in late July and early August, but a more likely delivery date for the bulk of the units will be September. It seems like we are steadily pushing back the date, but it’s truly hard to predict what potential problems might arise, and how much extra development time is needed. We will always be providing you with the best possible information regarding production and delivery.


Expect our updates to continue, and to see more and more photos of our assembly space and production parts as we move forward.


As a member of this talented team, it’s incredibly hard for me to bring the bad news. I make a big effort to try and keep every backer happy, and I know that the delays make this ever-more difficult. But due to the overwhelming passion and commitment of this team, I can say with absolute certainty that we will deliver a product that will exceed your expectations. I hope I’ve conveyed that over these last months.



Thanks for the continued support,



Trevor and the Grasshopper Team"

its not about how long i have to wait to try it ,its about trusting the person who reviews it ,i trust vapefiends reviews of vaporisers and i trust my own judgement .i have never seen a review of a vaporiser by yourself ..sorry ..not having a dig ,being honest .
