    Amazing :haw:

    With no Splash Catcher or 2nd disk perc, the draw is seriously unrestricted. Just shoots vapor right down your gullet! Learned my problem isn't a bigger tube, but a highly restricted big tube. With this thing clearing instantly I am having no problems handling the beast.

    edit: You might notice there's no APIX logo. I was surprised as I never brought it up nor did he. Either way I feel similarly to other FC Members where logo-less clear scientific glass is simply beautiful.

    Might try to make a more professional in-action video this Thursday.

    Sweet rig!

    Looks like lately Dan has been making tons of stemlines/kingstems/gridded discs with all kinds of color work. Here's some stuff he recently posted to his site:

    Plus here's some custom work he's been posting on instagram lately:

    So pumped Danny d getting me my king stem to king disc. Mostly for my Vapexhale. Just put the finishing touches last night. Stardust blue and slime accents. Saw the cloud in the pics sd haze. Is that his normal joint or something bigger to hold the cloud? I'll post some pics when i get it. He emailed me so i dont think he got pics up. So nicely priced . Half. Of what we all woulda paid for some prodo piece put out. Support this art and especially. Dan

    Will his normal joints be stressed too much with a 4mm joint. I didn't even think of asking his work looked so good.lol

    Hmm, well on the apix website he says he's using "Uber 4mm joints". However, in the emails quoted to me he mentioned a 9mm uber joint he was using.

    Maybe he switched what he was measuring, or maybe he prefers the 4mm. Either way, I'd go with what he suggests as its probably not a cost issue but more of a practical issue. I could also see how a thicker heavier joint might add a tinge more stress to the tube.

    Note:
    If you're specifically using it for the VXC,
    (and this goes for almost all stemless tubes),
    keep in mind that if you start the perc, then pause, then start again... the pause will send some vapor through the cloud's bamboo via negative pressure. Do this every day for months and the cloud's inner tube will get a bit unclean. Hopefully this issue will be less important if the VXC 2.0 has a replaceable bamboo that the user can remove to clean.

    Shipped, final specs. King stem 65mm can to king disc 60mm. 15.5 inches, bore reduction to 32mm for mouthpiece, slime accented rim. Slime accents on bridge and bottom window, worked slime four pinch slide. Something crazy like 90 holes for gridded diffused smoothness:) can't wait to get some pics up.

    So I got my king stem to king disc with slime and 32mm mouth. Any of you out there with experience with Dan's king ti kings let me know if when you hit it does the water seem to stay above the dis and create almost another chamber. Also some holea in my disc are larger, maybe giving more chug instead of a airy pull. Anyone have this on theirs? Seems the grids were cut nice but kinda percs between about 7 or 8 big holes, is it supposed to diffuse to all? I've been using my vxc and flowers. It's still an amazing piece and I wouldn't hesitate to make another purchase from him. Just wondering if all this was normal. On the disc moat holes are the same size about 4 larger and some I'm not sure if he was trying to fit seven on the disc, are much skinnier and smaller in design. I've seen pics of both, just wanted to know the general concensus was. Also he made a wicked 45 degree adapter for the cloud slime accents and all, good, good, dude. Want a bub from him but makes very little told him I'll pay good.lol. anyone good bubs for vxc, direct me to the glass link? Peace and have a meditative day

    Overwhelmed? Sometimes haha.
    Usually not.

    Big dabs through it: that's what will make me cough a lung.

    Dan's stemline makes for some cool-looking reclaim
    Reminds me of neurons branching off in the brain :freak:
