I am a GIANT fan of the "cheap, high quality bubbler" thread. I believe I've read every single page... Kinda sad! Towards the beginning of that behemoth lots of cool, sometimes domestic, but more mid prices pieces were mentioned. I was thinking it might be cool to have an "in between", "bang for th buck", "mid-ranged", "Toyota corolla", glass thread. I don't recall their being a dedicated thread, but if there is- please feel free to delete this. A few months ago I noticed these in a few shops and they had a great feel and pull. Most were under 2bills and to my knowledge made in the states. http://www.dreamssmokeshop.com/product/fatboy-glass-honeycomb-perc/ He has a little gridded stemline that was killer as well!
