    @Hogni where have U been?

    I missed U!

    Forget the mouth piece size?
    F^ck they will never understand the need.

    Marketing wise 95% RECREATIONAL
    Medical wise 5% = $$$ motivates not compassion

    Why not give a choice?

    @ataxian, as I've said a few days ago I was in the hometown of my just died mom to organize her funeral and for clearing the remaining of all her stuff.

    @Hogni Hiya sir, you've definitely been missed around here. Losing a parent was one of life's most difficult time for me. Sorting out the affairs and material estate, just all the logistical stuff was exhausting for me. I second ataxian's sentiment, you shouldn't worry about the mouthpiece project right now. Our main concern is your wellbeing, the civilized mouthpiece project is way down the priority chart. I'm glad you're back!

    @ataxian Took me a minute to decipher your meaning about rec/med percentages because I'm right on up there ATM. But you're correct sir. The mob rules when it comes to glass, both in China & US glass is primarily produced for the majority of the moment: The Combusters. Vaporists are in the minority for sure, for now. A vaporist today must examine pieces intended for combustion to find the ones best suited for our purposes. But this will change as more folks see the light, maybe someday we'll be the 95% my friends! Simple low-diffusion percs in cans of all sizes and all with removable/interchangeable mouthpiece stems!

    Was it Möbius who made the first trumpet-style mouthpiece? Because mainly what I see, regardless of country of origin, are variations on the same big hole theme. I've seen a couple with smaller trumpet MPs that I really like, so maybe it's just the size. But the style seems played out to me and I am starting to see smaller flare-type snakehead mouthpieces on a few prodo pieces. If the combusters don't go for it, they'll go running right back to Smooth Jazz Gaping Trumpet Mouthpiece Country.

    Sorry this is a rambling, borderline OT post my friends. No excuses, but :smug:

    Peace be with you, you cheap glass fuckers (of combustion)!

    JACK HERER I respect!

    If your RECREATION = better than booze!
    If your MEDICAL = better than drug's!!

    I know the first BonG's were made from BAMBOO.

    Waterpipes had large mouthpiece like a BonG!

    I have learned to reduce my mouthpiece to what I prefer!

    I need to have a factory build my design.
    If it was up to me: MOUTHPIECES will be detached like GIANT ASH COLLECTOR'S

    SHERLOCK R NICE! JHOOK'S

    So in order to have some sense of CIVILIZATION I modify my gear for vaping with water-path.

    I don't think the vendor's will think of the future?

    Most of the SURFER'S where I live R JOINT SMOKER'S!
    I prefer vaporizing!

    Hi, I ordered yesterday this bubbler : [link removed] cause my wife/daughter/dog/cat broke my favourite bubbler some weeks ago (a tree arm perc too), I didn't found the culprit...

    Thanks to @MrMonss for sending to me the link. This is exactly that I want, dismantle-able, removable mp, stable (look like), 18mm joint placed on the top of the can (and not on the side) and cheap!

    Just want to know how much is the size with the mp removed, please?

    I was thinking about the Herborizer bubbler but it was not really cheap, or about a more "beautifull to see" bubbler with colored accents (I'm slightly tired from the scientific/lab gear design) but ended with something cheap and more functional.
    Now I have to wait until 2018 before to get it in my hands.... shipping is slow and it's not the best time to expect to get things faster.

    Congrats! Yep, the SB clone is one of my favourites too. How much is shipping to France?
    BTW no reply from Steven up to now. Asked for something like a SB clone with different optional mouthpieces and percs too.

    Is there a small torus incycler that has been a winner?
    Looking for a new travel piece for dabbing.

    I got a Great Lakes Bubble Straw, but I can't figure out how to keep it from getting my Air 2 wet on the inside. I dry it off after I fill it, but the vape makes an unhappy sizzling sound when I heat it up.

    Hey gang !
    I've shared with you all the latest pieces I've gotten from Sunshine Store, the great DHGate manufacturer/seller I've come to rely on for fast shipping great recyclable packaging and quality glassware.
    Well I'm gonna share this with you even though I'm not sure a honey straw really fits in a bubbler thread..
    It has a bubbler in it though !!
    So it kinda qualifies !
    Thru my concentrate career I've never really gotten into honey straws (hope I'm not using a copyrighted name there, I'm trying to avoid using 1 of 2 others), but I picked up a tiny glass one for $10 at the local headshop recently and was like wow this works quite well. So I decided to get a 'real' one with water filtration!
    She's a beast.
    The performance is great, the bubbler doesn't leak and performs well, glass is relatively thick, and the quartz tip is actually quartz.
    This cost more than the cheapest one available. I chose this because (a) superior seller/factory with great shipping times and (b) actual quartz.
    Here's the listing.
    Here's some pics I took, with the company pic at the end:
