I have been getting into lös more and more lately, and when the opportunity arose for me to buy an Icetool from a fellow snuser for less than retail, I jumped on it. I have been using a Prismaster, and to be honest, I'm not all that good at handbaking. This isn't going to be a "How-To-Lös" blog, but just my thoughts on the Prismaster vs the Icetool, and is it worth spending on 40 bucks on an Icetool when a Prismaster is only a couple bucks?
Well, the answer is yes. To state it as simply as possible, Icetool=win.
NOTE: Even though I don't handbake, here's a few helpful videos from those who do, in case you are curious about how it works.
My buddy Nash has a great handbaking video on his channel - (link)
I didn't know when I would start los, but I eventually came to it when Nordströmmen released that special lös line a few months back, and I couldn't miss out. I picked up a Prismaster and started lössin' like a böss. The Prismaster made me angry. It made me frustrated. I'm glad it was plastic, because it got thrown around alot. As punishment for a messy lösmouth. But, I liked lös, so I just sucked it up. Recently, the situation arose to buy an Icetool, and after receiving it in the mail today and using nothing but lös all day long, I can officially say, nothing beats an Icetool.
Ok, I'll quit talking about the equipment itself and move on to what it actually does. The snus. As I said earlier, Prismaster makes a big sloppy mess. A pris that falls apart, slides, and is just uncomfortable. It makes one big, ugly size. I have nothing good to say about it.
So what can I say? I love the Icetool. For those of you who want to try los, I can't express how much I think you need to get an Icetool. The Prismaster is a waste of money, handbaking sucks, but the Icetool reigns supreme. In a battle of the two, there is no comparison. The Icetool is a great item, and very much worth the 40 bucks it costs to buy one.
