For comparison, we filled the same amount each time. With a little hand pressure, a perfect rosin coin is formed at the end. We have also created detailed instructions how to pack your bags correctly.

We were able to fill the pre-press mold from ogcrush with up to 6 gramm of flowers (using the bottle-tech style). The compacted material moves around less inside the bag when pressed reducing blowouts. With reduced blowouts you are able to track your yields more accurately. In our test, we got around 0.5g yield from 3.5g flowers using 25micron bags in a 10T Dabpress with 1200PSI pressure about 2min.
