    Hi everyone. I've been really enjoying my first vaporizer (the Arizer Air). I'm in Canada, and got it for a deal too so that was nice. :)

    I've been looking for a good bubbler to use with it. A lot of bubblers seem expensive after I convert from USD to CAD, but I haven't found anything at $100 CAD or so around here. I don't plan on buying multiple bongs since I'm just a student, so I'm looking for something that I can use daily for a long time.

    From what I've learned so far:
    - Less diffusion is good
    - Smaller units are preferable?
    - DHGate has a lot of selection for reasonable prices, but non-chinese glass may be better quality?

    I'm always very careful with my stuff, so I doubt I'd break anything I get. I just care about effective cooling, taste, and a smooth draw. I care about aesthetics too and I'd love painted glass, but it seems to generally be expensive.

    Here's some stuff on DHGate that I've looked at:
    1. Sunshinestore: D020-d
    2. Stevenlmz79: Mobius Matrix copy
    3. Yingmin5: Mobius Matrix copy
    4. Cleanclearglass: Vortex
    5. Cleanclearglass: Vortex (with matrix perc)
    6. Cleanclearglass: Fab Egg

    There's a ton of other choices that I'm getting overwhelmed with aha. I'm amazed at some of the fancy stuff I've seen too, but I'd like opinions on the above items.

    I was also interested in modular pieces (I'm pretty minimalist, so getting 1 bong and adding stuff to it over the years sounds cool!). But I have no idea where to look. Sorry if this is a long post!

    I would say D020-d. I haven't tried all the others except the matrixs but I think the tire perc is a very easy draw that goes good with the restriction of the air

    Okay, that seems to be the consensus around here. :)

    Where should I get a good adapter for the D020-d? Is it the 18mm version of this:

    Or this?

    EDIT: Ooh, this micro bubbler looks cool too.

    you can use the black plastic tipped stem the air comes with but you need an adapter to make the 18 into a 14 mm connection.
    you can go the planet vape route but those are overpriced imo
    dhgate vendors have the adapters

    In my experience though I don't think the air works well with water. I feel more satisfied just using it dry but I do seem to be in the minority.

    I'm using "the tank"
    http://www.dhgate.com/product/2015-feb-newest-glass-bong-9-quot-inches/247499767.html

    and a D020 d ... with a haze v3 and cf vape.. the little 14mm fab egg tank gets used the most...

    This is the D020 bubbler from DHGate.

    I suggest a j hook too.

    I don't use bubblers often and haven't used any of the DHGate pieces or glass from china but my Magic Flight Orbiter's served me well for a few years now when I wanna play with water/glass.

    It's the perfect size for my use. EDIT; plus it's 14mm so i can just use the black tipped air stems and don't need extra gongs/wongs (although i love the wong from Ed's T'n'T as a dry stem or with the orbiter).

    :peace:

    The FC mouthpiece works awesome with my solo, tried it with the air and it pairs well with that one as well.

    I'm on the other side of this. The Fab is nice, but I'd get the Fab Egg FTK. Or the Dcycler is nice (you have it as aVortex or the Vortex/perc), but I'd prefer a smaller version of that piece. I like the pieces with a recycling function as a natural splash guard. The small versions of these pieces below 10 inches work amazing for me. I have some functions on my instagram with some low THC content buds. I need to retake it with good bud that actually milks.

    This is my current most used

    I couldn't be happier with how this GravLabs 9" bubbler is working for me ... in the year and a half since I got the Air, it kinda gets a little rough on my throat with any kind of regular use ... so it's been, more and more over the last year and a half, balloons from the EQ.

    But quicker than you can say "bubble bubble", the EQ desktop has become strictly a backup.

    Simple ... and smooth hits, no doubt :-)

    Looks like the nectar collector I was posting earlier which reminds me I need to buy that. Check DHGate for those too, could be dual function type. Get dab use and vape use out of it.
