The Rosinbomb Rocket Review: Breakdown

How To

The Rocket works exactly the same as the larger Rosinbom M-50, just on a smaller scale. Even if you aren’t familiar with rosin presses, don’t worry! Pretty much anyone can learn how to work this unit. Shatter and wax, here we come!

Similar to the larger version, the Rocket is ready to be used right out of the box! To start, just plug it in and set a temperature. Then, let the plates warm up for about 10 minutes. Watch your fingers, because this appliance can get up to 300°F (149°C)!

While the device is getting warm, set up your herbs between 2 pieces of parchment paper. This will protect your rosin from burning while eliminating the need for solvents. You can add up to 5 grams of botanicals at a time.

When the machine reaches your desired temperature, set your covered materials between the plates. Press the up button, and the machine will clamp down. In about 2 minutes, the rosin will be flowing! When it finishes, press the down button and the plates will release.

Let the rosin sit until it has completely cooled. Only then is it safe to remove the parchment paper and try your handiwork!

The plates that do the dirty work are 3.2 inches by 2.8 inches. This press comes with 2 plates for maximum and even heat and pressure application. In fact, you get a whole 1500 pounds of force behind each PRESS of the button!

In terms of build quality, the Rocket conforms to the typical Rosinbomb standards. However, as with the M-50, we expected more for the price. Additionally, we don’t think the pressure reaches the full 1500 pounds based on the yield.

As with the M-50, the Rocket comes with a 1-year warranty on electrical components and a 5-year warranty on structure.

Convenience 

All you need to get delicious rosin are heat, pressure, and time. Using a hair straightener takes considerable time and pressure. Not only do you have to go over the stuff multiple times, you have to apply a lot of manual strength. Plenty of arms have been exhausted by this method.

The Rosinbomb Rocket helps solve all of these problems. This little device saves you tons of time, as well as your arms! You can also rest assured all of the rosin possible will be squeezed out of the material.

If you hate the sound of hydraulic presses, you aren’t alone. That is why Rosinbomb made their unit completely electric. That means no more having to turn up the television when you want to make more goods! It also lends itself to less conspicuous use in a small room or apartment.

In addition to the convenience of use, this unit weighs in extremely light for a rosin maker. It’s only 13 pounds! Furthermore, it stands to about the height of a beer bottle. This allows you to easily carry and store the appliance when you aren’t using it to make wax.

The most inconvenient thing about the Rocket is the amount of yield. It is the perfect size for one person, but if you want a substantial amount you will be disappointed. After a while, it will get annoying filling small bag after small bag.

Results

The results of using the Rosinbomb Rocket really depend upon the temperature you use. The hotter you set the temperature, the more rosin you will get out of a batch of herbs. Just be aware that it will not be as potent as flowers pressed at a lower level of heat.

We recommend heating between 200 and 220 degrees Fahrenheit (95 to 105 degrees Celsius) to get the best concentration. However, there are plenty of opportunities to experiment: this machine can be set to the degree! No more having to settle for only even-numbered temperatures and minimal control.

Another thing affecting the results is the amount of material you use. Although 5 grams is the max, we recommend using between 2 and 2.5 to get a higher potency. However, this varies by person so it may take a few tries to find your perfect level.

Conclusion

Overall, the Rosinbomb Rocket is a decently made press that is good for individual rosin production. It is lightweight, portable, and saves you a lot of time and effort. However, it is extremely expensive for the results. If you are looking for a unit to produce on a larger scale, we recommend checking out the Rosinbomb M-50.
