Nicotine Salt eLiquids

nicotine-salt-eliquid-banner

eLiquids and vaping have changed the ways we absorb nicotine into our bodies. We no longer need to combust tobacco in order to get nicotine, we simply vape instead. Whilst vaping has made this process easier and more beneficial for users in many ways, vaping is still generally unable to provide that quick nicotine hit or ‘rush’ that people get from cigarettes. Vaping delivers the nicotine to the body, which is why it works, but just not as quickly as cigarettes.

Most eLiquids on the market use a form of nicotine derived from the tobacco leaf, but some manufacturers are looking at other methods, either synthesizing the nicotine, or getting it from a different source.

dr-salt-eliquid-banner

Salt Nicotine eLiquids are basically what the name suggests; an eLiquid that manages to encapsulate the natural salt that is found within the tobacco leaf. Vaping a salt-based nicotine eLiquid allows nicotine to be absorbed into the body at a faster rate than standard eLiquids, allowing the user to experience a more “natural” nicotine rush that’s more similar to smoking a tobacco cigarette. Salt based nicotine eLiquids aim to provide a more potent nicotine hit than most eLiquids can currently provide.

Traditionally, a type of freebase nicotine is used in tobacco cigarettes. Initially, nicotine is found in a “salt-like” state on the tobacco leaf, and in order to increase the potency of the nicotine hit, tobacco companies change the chemical structure of the nicotine; making it into “freebase nicotine”.

mr-salt-eliquid-banner

Using a salt nicotine eLiquid means that the higher nicotine eLiquids that were traditionally quite harsh on the throat, are now much, much smoother, and flavours and tastes can be experienced clearer. Not only that, salt-based nicotine eLiquids also allow the user to receive the nicotine hit at a faster rate, improving the efficiency of the vaping experience.

As they are predominantly designed for the high nicotine users in mind, they’re not really suitable for sub-ohm setups, and it wouldn’t be advisable to use nicotine-salt eliquid with a high-powered sub-ohm coil. Nicotine still provides the biggest part or factor of the throat hit, regardless of how smooth the VG/PG mix is.

Sub ohm limitations aside, these natural salt-based nicotine eliquids offer an arguably improved vaping experience for those who use high nicotine eLiquids, and could potentially change the way in which eLiquids are manufacturered in the future.

Vape Laws and Regulations Explained (TRPR / TPD)

trpr-tpd-explained-regulations

On the 20th of May this year, the Tobacco & Related Products Regulations will completely kick into action. This comes into effect across the whole of the European Union, where it’s known as TPD (Tobacco Products Directive). The TRPR is the interpretation of the regulations by the UK government into UK law. You may have seen some gradual changes in the last year, including 2ml tank sizes and an increase in 10ml bottles. This has been a changeover period where both non-regulated and the new regulated products could be sold interchangeably. However, after the 20th of May all vaping products will have to be compliant with TRPR in order to be bought and sold in the EU.

The official UK government document lists all the regulations in detail, but the simplified version states that;

  • Vape tanks will be no larger than 2ml.
  • eLiquid bottle sizes will be no larger than 10ml.
  • The maximum Nicotine strength available will be 20mg (2%).

Other rules require a leak-proof refilling mechanism, a consistent dose of nicotine from the vape device, and comprehensive product testing and certification from the manufacturers and suppliers.

trpr-tpd-explained-regulations

Basically, in order for vaping products to be sold in the UK after May the 20th, these products have to be what’s referred to as ‘notified’, where manufacturers have to submit particular pieces of information about their products, such as packaging, ingredients, toxicology reports, and emissions tests. The organisation that deals with this notification in the UK is called the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency), and they basically just want to ensure that eLiquid doesn’t contain harmful compounds or chemicals, or any ingredients that have been banned for use. This things are vitally important as the user needs to be certain they’re receiving a quality product that is safe to use.

The regulations are highly controversial within the industry, for a number of varying reasons. Although testing and packaging are reasonable things, other parts of the regulations are seen by many to be completely unneccessary. The cost of getting even a single product ‘notified’ by the MHRA is substantially high, and a vast number of the current eLiquid manufactures are unable to meet this cost, and have and will inevitably shut down. While this does narrow the market considerably, it also does away with any potential “Cowboy” juice makers, who may use ingredients that may be harmful. It allows only companies with the proper equipment and resources to continue to manufacture.

On the other hand, advertising is, and will continue to be, heavily censored, which potentially means that it’s more difficult to get the necessary information out to those that need it, such as the smokers desperately trying to quit.

While some of the rules are a positive step towards regulation, other aspects of the TRPR will affect a vast number of vapers. The 2ml maximum tank size that’s being introduced will be potentially abrasive for many people, as up until this point tanks have ranged from small capacities like 2ml, all the way up to 10ml and beyond (within reason).

trpr-explained-2ml-tanks

Due to the nature of Sub Ohm devices, users of these vapes do need to refill their tank fairly frequently, more so compared to a regular user of mouth-to-lung style devices. Having a 2ml capacity tank and Sub Ohm vaping on it will very likely mean it will have to be refilled several times a day if used often.

Another aspect to the regulations that will force vapers to change their habits is the maximum eLiquid bottle size they’ll be able to purchase. In the past, Vapers have been able to purchase large quantities (100ml, 120ml, 180ml) of eLiquid, saving on time, money, and postage cost. After May, only individual 10ml bottles will be available in shops, meaning vapers will have to quickly get used to carrying (and trying not to lose) small bottles of eLiquid.

On the other hand, there will still be ways to get hold of quantities of 30ml, 60ml, and 120ml. It will just be in 10ml form. So a 120ml bottle equivalent will be divided into twelve individual 10ml bottles, in a pack. A three pack will equal 30ml, a six pack will equal 60ml, and so on.

These individual 10ml bottles also form part of the Leak-proof mechanism that the regulations require. Most glass eLiquid bottles have a pipette that’s used to transfer eLiquid from the bottle to the tank, but this isn’t always the cleanest, safest, or most hygienic method of doing it. The 10ml bottles are designed in such a way to eliminate leaks and spills, and keep the eLiquid as fresh as possible.

trpr-explained-10ml-bottles-eliquid

The other aspects of the regulations will not really affect most vapers. A 20mg maximum strength, will only affect a very small portion of vapers, as 18mg has generally been the standard highest strength for most vapers up until this point anyway.

So all in all, things are about to change for good within the vaping world, whether we like them or not. Some of these regulations are a positive step towards proper regulation, whereas others can be seen to be of ill-advised logic and reasoning. We’ll be continuing to stock non-TRPR compliant stock as long as we can, and after this we’ll make every effort to stock the widest possible variety of vape products that we can.

Mixing and Vaping with Nicotine Booster Shots – TRPR/TPD Regulations

nicotine-booster-shots-header

As many of us are aware, the laws surrounding eCigarettes, eLiquid, and vaping are set to change indefinitely in May 2017, for both the UK and the EU. We will all be restricted to purchasing eLiquid in a maximum capacity of 10ml, which has rightly upset many people in the vaping community. However, some industrious vapers have discovered another way to supply premium eLiquid in the post-TRPR era of vaping.

While TRPR in May 2017 will regulate the industry, it also means that the choice for consumers will be heavily culled and reduced, meaning vapers are very restricted in what they’ll be able to procure. Many vapers have been used to getting 30ml and 60ml bottles, and nicotine shots will allow this method of vaping to still continue.

plus-nic-diagram-nicotine-booster-shot

Nicotine shots are a fully compliant way to convert a 0mg juice into a nicotine-containing eLiquid. This allows quantities of larger than 10ml to be converted into nicotine containing eLiquids, but still within the confines of the TRPR regulations. One company in particular, PlusNic are at the forefront of this revolution. Their nicotine shots enable any 60ml bottle of nicotine free eLiquid to be turned into either 3mg or 6mg, depending on user preference.

PlusNic shots have been designed and developed to work across the spectrum of eLiquid flavours, whether its citrus fruits or cream and custards. Ensuring only the best mixing outcomes for their customers, the PlusNic shots are available in three different PG/VG mixes. There’s a standard 50/50, along with higher VG versions in 70/30 and 80/20 for the sub ohm vapers. Easy dissolvable, the PlusNic shots are designed to mix seamlessly with any premium eLiquid range on the market.

The only drawback to this process is the loss of some eLiquid for the mix. If a user has 60ml of Nicotine Free eLiquid, they will need to dispose of at least 10ml in order to allow for the Nicotine Shot to be mixed in with it. While this is something that may potentially put some vapers off from using nicotine shots, as they wouldn’t want to waste a sixth of their eLiquid, there will likely be some 70ml and 80ml empty mixing bottles that will be available that will allow for this extra volume of liquid.

Innokin MVP4 Mod: Vape Overview

innokin-mvp4-blog-header

Retaining many of the features of its predecessors, Innokin’s MVP4 looks to keep everything that was liked about the originals, while improving on the design and functionality.

Innokin have come a long way from the earlier MVP models that only featured around 15W of output. Now in its fourth iteration, the MVP4 still retains that box-like shape and a huge battery capacity that will be familiar to users of the previous models.

innokin-mvp4-blogWhile the MVP3 had just 30W of output, with its PRO version ramping this output up to 60W, the MVP4 manages to crank out 100W of vaping power, and also features a rather large 4500mAh integrated battery; similar to the Pro version.

This huge battery offers a generous amount of vaping time, and would last the average vaper easily over a day. It also allows other devices to be charged via the port at the bottom, meaning it can function as a power bank if need be.

The Innokin MVP4 is powered by their innovative Aethon microchip, which has advanced yet very easy-to-use Temperature Control (TC) capabilities that include Stainless Steel SS316L, Ni200, and Titanium, along with standard Kanthal. The MVP4 also has the ability to detect and avoid dry hits and features over-charge safety precautions.

High-quality Stainless Steel threading and a gold-plated connection pin allows for the current to flow smoothly, and its 510 thread means its compatible with the vast majority of tanks on the current market.

A large OLED screen situated on the side of the device displays all necessary user information, such as wattage, temperature, and charge levels, while the robust and sturdy design means the MVP4 can take the knocks and scrapes that daily life throws at it.

Innokin have included a 2A quick-charge with the MVP4, meaning that the battery will charge at a much faster rate than previous models. As well, the device features pass-through capabilities, so it can be used while it’s charging.

Aspire Nautilus 2 Tank: Vape Preview

aspire-nautilus-2-vape-tank

Aspire’s Nautilus tanks are well known among vaping circles, as they were one of the early devices to be adopted by a wide number of people.

Feedback on the tank has always been positive, both the full-size Nautilus and the Mini.

Aspire released the Nautilus X tank last year, but it was met with some disappointment from the vaping community who felt that it wasn’t an improvement on the original design. nautilus-2-tank-fill

Now Aspire have the Nautilus 2, launching it as if it’s the sequel to The Avengers; “The Legend Never Ends”.

The Nautilus 2 design is similar to that of its earlier predecessors, rather than the X, as it features a bell-shaped design.

It’s also completely enclosed in Steel, with a small circular window to allow the user to observe eLiquid levels in the tank.

Similar to the Nautilus X, the Nautilus 2 features a Top-Fill design, and with a 2ml capacity its fully TRPR compliant.

It maintains the compact design of the previous models, but takes the more curved look of the original Nautilus and Mini tanks, rather than the squat square shape of the X.

Aspire have redesigned the airflow system for the Nautilus 2, neither featuring a Top Airflow like the X, or the single hole design of the original models.

This new Nautilus instead features a bottom-airflow with five settings, ranging from open to tight.

It’s a much more accurate airflow, which allows the user to really dial in an precise airflow setting.

The Nautilus 2 itself comes with a 0.7Ω coil, allowing the device to be a Sub Ohm tank for the first time. Other coils are also available, including a standard Mouth-to-Lung 1.8Ω.

Secondary & Side-Effects of Vaping

secondary-side-effects-vaping

Many smokers are still confused by aspects of vaping, how it works, and whether or not it’s harmful to us and our bodies. Public Health England state that vaping is 95% safer than smoking tobacco, and is considered by many to be a ‘harm-reduction’ tool, rather than being absolutely one hundred percent safe.

It’s almost an impossible task to stay completely 100% healthy in this modern day and age, and the only way to have a realistic chance of achieving this to only breath in the freshest and cleanest air; don’t smoke, don’t vape, and avoid all car fumes and cities.

However, if you do choose to vape, you may find yourself experiencing some mild side-effects with vaping. There’s no need to panic, as they’re all harmless, but we’ve outlined and explained a few of the common vaping side-effects below.

 

Dehydration

We all get dehydrated from time to time, it’s just part of human nature that our bodies need a consistent replenishment of water. Many of us find it difficult to stay hydrated during our day-to-day anyway, but vapers may find they are more susceptible to feeling like needing to drink big glass of water. It’s something to be mindful of.

All you need to do is to ensure you’re drinking enough water every day, and just be mindful if you’re a vaper that you may be feeling thirstier than usual.

Dry Mouth

Similar to being dehydrated, users of vape devices may find their mouth and tongue, in particular, becoming dry and arid; perhaps more so than usual. This can be due to the Propylene Glycol (PG) in the liquid. PG is what’s known as a ‘hydroscopic” liquid, which means that its very good at attracting and condensing water molecules together.

To combat this, just be sure you’re keeping yourself hydrated during vaping, as you would normally. However, if it does become more of an issue, simply try an eLiquid that’s lower in Propylene Glycol, and higher in Vegetable Glycerin (VG).

Vapers Tongue

So you’ve just found your favourite eLiquid, it’s full on flavour and you can’t stop vaping it. Suddenly the flavour’s gone, disappeared. You have another vape, and it’s still not there. What’s happened?! Basically, you’re experiencing what’s known as ‘Vapers Tongue”, and its very common and quite easy to remedy. Vapers tongue occurs when your tastebuds become accustomed to a certain flavour after repeated use, and the tastebuds can no longer detect the flavour due to saturation.

One of the ways to remedy this is to quite simply change flavours. You’re tastebuds will be able to detect the different flavours, and you’ll be able to go back to your favourite juice again after a little while.

New vapers who have just quit smoking tobacco may also find their tastebuds are playing up initially. Just know that this is a completely normal part of the process, where your tastebuds will start to work properly again after being saturated with tobacco smoke for a period of time.

 

Headache

Vaping can be a tricky thing to navigate for a new user. It does require a some degree of initial investment with a bit of research and self-education, and it’s important to know the basics before diving in. This applies to many aspects of vaping, but in particular the nicotine strength a user selects does require a bit of forethought. Some new vapers think that going straight to the highest possible nicotine strength is the way to start vaping.

It’s understandable to think that having the highest possible nicotine strength would deter a new vaper from going back to cigarettes, as it would, in theory, give the most amount of nicotine per puff, but this isn’t generally the case. Vaping is very different to smoking tobacco, and it administers nicotine at a different rate.

We always advise going in at around 12mg, as its strong enough to give a kick, but no too overpowering. Remember, you can always vape through a lower strength if it’s not strong enough, but if an eLiquid is of too high of a strength then it will be unpleasant to taste and potentially be unvapeable for the user.

Although very rare, as most vapers are known to self-regulate their habit, inhaling too much nicotine can cause users to experience mild dizziness, nausea, and an increased heartbeat. All they’ll need to do is have a lie down for a little bit, as these symptoms don’t tend to last long, and the experience is over fairly quickly.

Coughing / Sore Throat

Although it’s intended to closely replicate the sensation of smoking tobacco, vaping is still a very different method of getting nicotine in your body. Some of those very new to vaping may find themselves coughing and spluttering when using a device, and it can sometimes be a cause for alarm. However, this is quite a normal thing that just requires a bit of getting used to, as the body is just adjusting to this new experience that it has never had before.

PG and Nicotine can both be a mild irritant on the throat at first, but using an eLiquid with a high VG content allows it to smoothen out, and this is why the majority of eLiquids are made in the favour of VG. Coughing should subside as a user gets more experience with vaping, but if someone’s finding a persistent cough, then they might want to reconsider how they’re vaping.

Vaporesso Drizzle Kit: Vape Overview

vaporesso-drizzle-kit

Already well known for their innovatively designed devices and kits, Vaporesso have managed to compact a 1000mAh battery into a vaping device that’s just over 10cm in height; just bigger than a cigarette lighter! Vaporesso have produced some interesting looking devices in their time; the Attitude Kit, the Target Pro with its trigger-pull design; the Tarot Pro with its intricately patterned side-panels. Even the tiny Target Mini!

drizzle-kit-up-1

The Drizzle Kit is Vaporesso’s foray into a compact pen-sized device, featuring a 1.8ml TRPR compliant tank with a 1000mAh battery. As we mentioned, the device is exceptionally small, but for its size, it does manage to pack in a lot of dense features.

Most 1000mAh battery mods are a lot bigger, but Vaporesso have managed to squeeze this battery capacity into a mod of nearly half the standard size!

The Drizzle Kit is a positively compact piece of vaping hardware.The 1.8ml TRPR compliant tank features a top filling mechanism, which allows the tank to be refilled with relative ease and without mess.

Its Top Airflow allows the user to dial in a suitable setting, ranging from a closed and tight vape to a wide-open air slot.

The tank is also leak-resistant, as it forms a ‘cup’ shape, with no way eLiquid can escape at the bottom of the tank.

The 1000mAh Drizzle Mod features a one-button operation, and can be charged via the USB port on the side of the device. The mod is very small in size, just slightly smaller and thinner than a standard 18650 battery. It has no adjustable settings, meaning it will always fire at full power until the battery drains down.drizzle-kit-side

Primarily designed for Mouth-to-Lung vaping, The Drizzle Kit comes supplied with two coils; a 1.3Ω Ceramic EUC coil, and a 1.4Ω standard coil. While these are Vaporesso’s EUC coils, they differ slightly to the full size ones; being smaller. Instead these are referred to as ‘EUC Drizzle’ coils, and will only work with the Drizzle Kit.

Digby’s Juices: 2017 eLiquid Range

digbys-juices

Deep in the depths of Dorset, among the birds and the trees; there lives a lot of eLiquid people, and they’re called Digby’s! Sadly, Digby’s aren’t the Poddington Peas, and they haven’t yet got their own theme tune (yet).

Digby’s have been hard at work extending their eLiquid range for 2017, having culled numerous flavours from their line-up; even some of the fan favourites! Bold moves on Digby’s part there. Sadly there’s no longer Mum’s Custard or Apple Cinnamon, Hooligan or The King; with the only two flavours making their way through the TRPR shakedown being Dr Jekyll and Moriya’s Mix.

Nevertheless, Digby’s have been hunkering down in their mixing bunker of vapeness, concocting some additional flavours to add to their range.

digbys-dr-jekyll-eliquid-uk

Dr Jekyll

Dr Jekyll harks back to those days in Victorian London; Horse-drawn carriages, top hats & tails, patchwork humans of the dead … Ok, maybe let’s skip past that one. Dr Jekyll features a strong aniseed taste as its basis, along with notes of Wormwood; a plant with a distinctive aroma that’s well known as an ingredient in Absinthe.

When used within a refillable tank system, Dr Jekyll features a blend of these two main flavours, but when used with an RDA or dripper, Mr Hyde shows his true form; evolving Dr Jekyll into a monstrous mix of the aforementioned Anise and Wormwood, along with a bitter mint undertone and Citrus zing! A unique flavour blend for those who may be searching for something a little different.
 

 

 

 
digbys-moriyas-mix-eliquid-uk

Moriya’s Mix

The other flavour returning for Digby’s 2.0 Redux range is their Moriya’s Mix; a fervent blend of Menthol and Eucalyptus.

It’s said to be a great nose-clearer on a stuffy day, with the strong flavours of both the Eucalyptus and the Menthol providing a powerful taste sensation on the tastebuds.Digby’s themselves recommend that users who would usually vape 18mg should try moving down a strength with this eLiquid as Moriya’s Mix can have quite a strong taste, even for high nicotine users. Digby’s themselves recommend that users who would usually vape 18mg should try moving down a strength with this eLiquid as Moriya’s Mix can have quite a strong taste, even for high nicotine users.

We’re still not entirely sure who Moriya is why this is their mix, but knowing Digby’s its origins and meaning are just as cryptic and mysterious as some of the other names of their flavours!

 

 

 

 
digbys-ayen-eliquid-uk

Ayen

Not only a small commune in the Novelle-Aquitaine region of Central France, made famous by Richard the Lionheart and the Siege of 1416, Ayen is also a Tobacco blend from our Digby’s in Dorset!

Ayen (the Digby’s version) is one of their newest flavours for 2017.

Taking the the familiar and basic Tobacco flavour that eCigs are known for, Digby’s have blended this with prominent notes of both Chocolate and Caramel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

digbys-bramble-eliquid-uk

Bramble

Widely known for being sharp, pointy, and something thorny that you’d rather not fall into, Bramble bushes also are known for producing the incredibly tart and sweet Blackberry fruit, as well as a number of ornamental species that can be grown for their flowering petals.

This Bramble, on the other hand, is a Juniper & Gin-based blend that also features Cane Sugar and Blackcurrants; adding both sweet and fruit layers to this vape.

Finally Bramble is finished with a cooling layer of mentol, adding a fresh tingle to this blend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

digbys-stalker-eliquid-uk

Stalker

Probably harbouring the least appealing sounding name of Digby’s 2017 range, Stalker conjures up thoughts of a foggy Victorian night with the Ripper lurking around the next corner; ready to strike!

Instead, Stalker by Digby’s is quite reminiscent of their earlier Gunpowder eLiquid.Stalker could probably be considered a sort of Gunpowder V2, as it contains quite a similar

Stalker could probably be considered a sort of Gunpowder V2, as it contains quite a similar flavour profile.

Definitely for those fans of Liquorice and Anise, Stalker contains a sweet Aniseed blend that’s also mixed with notes of citrus giving it a tart bite.

It’s definitely a juice to be following around…

Jester

Less of a joke and more of a complex blend of flavour notes, Jester eLiquid by Digby’s is new for 2017, and it’s certainly no laughing matter.

It features a blend of a variety of exotic tropical fruits, bringing their natural sweetness to the forefront of the flavour.

These citrus notes are then blended with Menthol for a cooling after note.

Rheum

Definitely not the sleep crust that we wake up most days (although it is spelt exactly the same), Digby’s have chosen the alternative name for Rhubarb for this eLiquid flavour blend.

Rheum is characterised by its blend of both Vanilla and tart Rhubarb, along with a pie crust element to add that bit of crumble in there.

We just wish they called it something different!

BO eCig: Liquid Capsule Vaping Kit

With the upcoming government legislation set to over-regulate and quash certain aspects of vaping culture, innovative designers and inventors from far and wide around the globe have been busy working their brains in an attempt to try and figure out a way around the problem.

There’s big tobacco’s “heat, not burn” process, which, unlike vaping we’ve been used to in the past few years, uses actual real tobacco leaf to acquire nicotine from. The tobacco is heated to the point of vaporization, but not combustion, as fire is what produces so many of the nasty chemicals that infect our bodies from smoking tobacco.

Alternatively, a few different companies have been experimenting with a “vape pod” or “liquid pod” based system, where a small disposable capsule filled with eLiquid and a heating element is used instead of a refillable tank; very similar to the early “cigalikes” that vapers were using a few years ago.

While we’ve looked at a few pod-based systems already, including the My Von Erl Starter Kit, there are more and more of these liquid pod devices being produced; one of which being the BO eCig Starter Kit, which is manufactured in France.

While its name may conjure up thoughts of fragrant armpits, the BO kit instead offers a colour-coded pod system that utilizes a thin rechargeable battery charged via a magnetic USB port. The USB is suitable for use with laptop or an easily accessible USB slot, although users of tower computers may find it more difficult.

Alternatively BO have a charging cable as an alternative means of charging, as well as their BO Power unit; a personalisable charging station with a 1500mAh internal battery, and this allows the BO eCig to be charged four times before the power bank itself will need a recharge, as well via USB cable.

The BO eLiquid pods, or ‘caps’ as BO refer to them as, are 1.5ml in capacity, and contain both the coil and heating element in the cap. These caps have a one-use design and are intended to be disposed of when the eLiquid in the cap has run out.

The BO eLiquid range features a wide-range of different flavours to try; twelve in total. BO’s flavours are divided into four categories; Tobacco, Fruit, Mint, and ‘Gourmand’, with flavour blends such as Complex Tobacco, Peach Smoothie, Lemon Cream, and Polar mint, to name a few.

Although its just been released, BO do have further plans that unfortunately we’re not permitted to disclose at the moment, but be assured that the BO eLiquid range will likely be extended to include many, many more flavour blends.

All in all, the BO starter kit, like the other disposable pod eCig devices, is suitable for a brand new vaper due to its incredible ease of use when compared to more complicated devices. The BO kit can be easily assembled and used within a matter of seconds, with its button-less operation ensuring its easy for new vapers to get to grips with.
