Review: Rosinbomb M-50
How it Works
Operating the Rosinbomb M-50’s a pretty simple process. Power on the unit and allow the plates to heat up for ~10 minutes. Adjust your temperature according to the end product you want; higher temperatures will yield more, yet lower quality end product. The opposite is true for lower temperatures. While the plates heat up, now’s a good time to load your filter bags with your dry herb!
The user guide suggests using around 14 grams of material, but for the highest yields and optimal extraction, many people report that using 7 grams is the sweet spot. Line the plates with an acceptable parchment paper, center the bag of herb and hold the ‘PRESS’ button.
Rosin should slowly seep out and after around 2 minutes it should be mostly extracted at this point. Hit the ‘RELEASE’ button, power off the device, and let the rosin cool slightly before collecting. Once you get the hang of things, it should only be around 15-20 minutes from start to finish.
All the components feel relatively well made, though not entirely the cream of the crop – something that you’d expect with such a hefty price tag! The manufacturer though does include a 1-year warranty on electrical parts and 5-year warranty on structural components which is reassuring.
There is something to be said about the company itself though. A notable amount of users experienced difficulties when contacting support for service, and even one person reported having the unit beginning to press without hitting the button – nearly taking off a finger! That is a HUGE safety hazard and something to really keep in mind.
Ease of Use
Using the Rosinbomb M-50’s an incredibly simple experience. No manual pumping, no air compressors, or complicated setup at all. Nothing about it is complicated and any medical patients with mobility issues won’t have any problems at all. If you’re looking to make concentrates in the easiest, quickest fashion, you really won’t have to look much further!
Clean up is an extremely simple process. Once the unit is properly cooled, simply clean both plates with an alcohol wipe to remove any lingering residue.
You certainly get good, thorough extraction and quality results with it! 5 tons of pressure is definitely enough to squeeze most of the rosin from your plants, and especially considering the size, it does very well!
It should be noted though that other units in this price bracket do have a stronger press. There’s no doubt that you can achieve similar or better results from less expensive units, though those might either require manual pumping, an air compressor, or get pretty large!
That’s not to say the end product isn’t quality! You’ll still get very high-quality rosin with good efficiency. It won’t do quite as well as larger, stronger presses when it comes to larger loads, and if you’re looking to press large quantities, you’d be much better off with something else.
For the size of the unit, the ease of use and generated results, the Rosinbomb M-50 isn’t a bad buy. But I can’t help but feel like you do overpay with the M-50. Unless the form factor and convenience are major selling points for you, it’s best to look elsewhere if you aim to get the best results possible or want to save so cash.
For what it is though, the M-50 performs well with little room for user error. You’ll be able to get a nice chunk of quality rosin in under 30 minutes, all with a device that weighs about as much as a microwave.
