    I was wondering what you guys thought the best glass to use with the vapexhale cloud. I was looking at mobius 65mm tube but my girlfriend was thinking about the mobius strato/nano both with matrix perc. Also looked at some sg'sbut looking for advice and suggestions

    well, I only have one piece of glass and it's a matrix ion. I love running all my vapes through it and once I started using it with my Cloud I stopped using the hydratube. Not everyone will feel this way, but it is a fantastic piece of glass for vaping. And I have no problem mating all my other toys with it. I have had it since about April and have not desired another piece of glass since.

    I just got my 65t today for use with the Cloud and NOTHING I've tried has compared, though I haven't tried any other Mobius pieces. My daily driver was an SG King Stemline but the Mobius gives me an equally big hit with WAY LESS EFFORT. If you're into quick hard hitting sessions I think the 65t is perfect. One hit kills a .25g ELB pretty easily.

    I like to vary which piece I use with each ELB, every piece is a different experience.

    For most flowers I like my 60t Stereo Matrix or if the vapor is strong/harsh and makes me cough then either my Steele Concept with the steel ice cubes or a Goldstein fritt. The Goldstein fritt is probably the smoothest but it seems to dial down some of the effects (if I use the Goldstein I find I need to use more material then either the Stero Matrix or Steele Concept).

    i have often wondered if there is a list of waterpipes that will allow you to use the cloud handsfree, without adaptors, or interference with anything...

    i have two waterpipes that allow me to do this; dg 16" fritted disk, and the sg pillar. the pillar is my fav to pair with the vxc, because i like the bigger size, and the action of the water/vapes when in use is fun to watch!

    I know what you mean, with how your fritt seems to 'dial down' the potency. I don't own a DG, but I have definitely noticed that 'extreme diffusion' perc designs(mainly frit & few others) seem to make me need to use more material as well. :shrug:

    My Choice: SYN Bent Neck Showerhead (Full-Size) 14.5in :nod: . The VXC rests comfortably/stable in the Stemless Joint & it's design allows for easy access to the unit, when not using a CloudBuddy; aka needing to remove the cloud to clear hit. The hit is extremely low drag, & a very quick to milk & clear. Takes no time at all to kill an ELB. :drool:

    I do love the DG paired with a HMK curve for concentrates though

    The cool thing about the Cloud is it CAN milk up large tubes! So, I'm on a Möbius kick and love all 3 of them with the Cloud. When I got my Strato I figured I would sell it pretty quickly since its so huge. But it just kills it with the cloud. But, if I was to only buy one Möbius for the cloud, it would be a nano with the matrix :)

    As you can see, it's clearly just personal preference, and few can afford to sample a wide range of top quality pieces for comparison. Some are even going to prefer the supplied Hydratube vs. a waterpipe/bubbler, at least sometimes.

    The penta perc (assuming you mean the möbius one) only comes in a tube with a DI (male) joint, so you'd need an 18mm-18mm female-female adapter for use with the cloud.
    Also, when it comes to the möbius disc diffused pieces, the diamond and penta percs look like a slightly tamed down version of the matrix disc IMO.

    As awesome as möbius stuff is, IMO the "best" glass for the cloud would have a vertical 18mm female joint, that allows the cloud to be used without an adapter.

    If you investigate my posts in the frit threads, this was something I explained awhile back.

    You can overcome it with some ingeniousness though.

    Some say it hides too much flavor, but also because it changes the water level/melts/is more trouble than its worth. I prefer ice whenever possible, although it is annoying in anything besides the beaker I use.

    Ice is certainly an option- user preference. There shouldn't be a problem with increasing the water level, as far as using the Cloud, as long as the vape is above the glass/water. Using ice in a Hdratube can be a problem if melting raises the water level too high, since the tube is above the vape and you don't want water getting into it.

    I consider it a pro if they don't have ice pinches. Can be easier to clean and easier to clear.

    If you have a simple tube with no ice pinches and a removable downstem, you can use something like a "bottle brush" to make any possibly heavy cleaning session super easy. If you think you'll do regular glass cleanings then that might be less of a concern.

    I posted this in the Mobius thread, but since there is a lot of Mobius talk here, I figured I'd share. Sunday is glass cleaning day!

    What size is that one in the middle of the lower picture? I wanted to look into the exo but can't find any online but I think the meso comes in a beaker bottem.

    That one is 16 inches, I believe. It's a monster!

    Thanks for the info, I'll be holding onto mine as long as I can get a spot on the dial that milks safe enough away from combustion.

    Some iPhone shots of new set up IGG Swagger StrtNck-HT -> BINGO DualShwrCP bblr

    Swagger Circ HT has no drag; bubler water level determines drag. Love the straight HT on top of Evo simplicity, but adding the bubler as an ashcatcher is pretty hard to turn down.
