    I'm curious?
    Your AVATAR is?

    I need to clean my CHEAP GLASS today.

    If I buy more my wife will think I'm crazy?



    GAS is a fun disorder!

    @Buzzbomb Almighty get a FC UFO if you don't have one already?
    I think the can is like the D020-D?

    I use the D020 with my PINK SOLO!

    SMALL CAN & BUBBLER'S = PORTABLES
    MED CAN's = LOG'S
    LARGE CAN'S = DESK TOP's

    Or whatever U like? (just my take)

    Hi all, I just wrecked my bong while doing some cleaning in the house. Fortunately my hydrotube bubbler arrived (now just finding out how to use that thing), but I actually want something so I can take big hits, like a bong.

    Now I acquired a very simple straightforward bong, with a room to put some ice in, to get these nice cooled hits. After I found out about DHGate I see so much nice pieces, also here, that look real nice, and I think are better options to cool down vapor.

    I had a variety of this one:

    [​IMG]

    But I am asking you experts if there is better option. I saw some really nice setups where you guys like expand your bubbler, looks funny haha. Well I guess what is the best option? Do I need to upgrade, or do you guys advice me to just stay with this one. I dislike the fact that it's a straight opening, So I need to put my head down. I'd like to just have the option to also look forward if I'm hitting the device, if that is clear.

    Do what you like?

    A BonG has too big of a hole 4 me!
    Remember some prefer a BonG than a smaller MOUTHPIECE like on a WATER-PIPE?

    BonG has a HUGE hole 4 some?
    SMALLER hole 4 some? (mouthpiece)
    I prefer small. (just me?)

    Whatever you like?

    I can see the pros and cons of "big" enough to make me feel like I want "medium" possibly!
    Im not into "small" mouthpieces/orifices really.

    @ataxian Did you buy a 10mm reducer for the M ?
    I also want a native piece in 10mm, certainly pretty

    Well, in order to help, it would help to know what vapes you're gonna use with it. And do you like small, med or large ones? About how many inches or mm tall.

    I'm gonna use it mainly with my Mighty, but I'd like to use it with my Vapcap as well. I think I go with medium one, I had one that was about 30 cm high, and that is a rather large one? Well I guess that was good for me, but maybe I can go with a smaller one, idk.

    Does anyone have both FC710 and FC Rattle Can ?
    I would like a small comparison of these two pieces with Diffusion Pump.
    There are several versions of the FC710 at attractive prices but only one version of the Rattle Can.

    When you buy several items from the same seller, do you have a simple way to group shipping costs?

    Here's a link to a great post in a good thread:

    http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/dhgate-aaaaaackkkkk-good-bad-seller-list.25475/page-9#post-1204467

    Both the Sunshine Store & stevenlmz79 have solid reputations around these parts so check out their stores. And the 4 pieces below work well with the vapcap. All you have to do is youtube the water piece #. Then do sometype of search for the mighty & water rig/bubbler/whatever, maybe thru water & see what types of rigs are popular for that vape.

    Check out these bubblers at the links below, then go to www.popularglass.com to find the it & see a video of it perking (literally, :lol:)

    Link to stevenlmz79: https://www.dhgate.com/store/14770203#st-navigation-storehome


    These are a couple of other ones that seem interesting to me:

    If I was to go with a cheap hydratube/hydrabase, I'd take the chance on checking the whole rig package out, even get the foot.

    https://www.dhgate.com/store/product/new-design-vapexhale-hydratube-sidecar-perc/386035662.html

    New design VapeXhale hydratube sidecar perc with stand 7 Inches bubbler glass bong 5mm thickness.jpg (JPEG Image, 788 × 820 pixels) - Scaled (71%)

    This one is a little too big for my lung capacity & I'm not sure that the perc looks all that great. I might even just be taken with it because of it's modern profile & the colored glass accents. Probably, that's it. :D
    https://www.dhgate.com/product/glass-bong-12-2-inches-water-pipe-5mm-thickness/403996451.html

    https://www.dhgate.com/product/8-inch-glass-bong-glass-percolator-bongs/259943149.html#ctabBox

    I like these 2, but worry about the thickness, or lack of, the glass as even though they are from the Sunshine store, it looks like one of they're, thin pieces, & I much prefer a thick, footed base. But they get great reviews, too, like the above vapcap suggested ones above:

    Lastly, I think the 1st 4 I referenced will be your best bet to go w/ both the vc & mighty. I think the mighty needs a more exciting & wonderfully diffused rig. So you could start off with one of the above & make it dual purpose for both vapes until you find that just right one for the mighty. Personally for my vaping & vape style & vapes, I love a well-made fab egg. But if you've been using a bong, this perc wouldn't be for you.

    @MrMonss, I am so sorry that you were outed -- way of bounds (a concise & perfect example of what being politically incorrect really means) & so uncool. :disgust: I am so gonna miss seeing your real face in your avatar. We gotta find an avatar for you that suits you as well as your own face did. :lol: This one, hopefully only temporary, doesn't suit you well enough. We have to both be on the lookout, & it might take some time, but we'll find the right one. :nod: And until then, if I want to see your lovely face I can just go to your bio page. ;)

    That's some helluva of bio you got there. You've had a good, fulfilling life. You're a very lucky man, & human being. :spliff: :cheers:

    Edited to add: I get the feeling from our conversation just now that you are NOT that gentleman in question? My bad, I thought you were. :\

    Thanks for the great reply @Summer! I think I will get such a percolator, I think these things look awesome, and to be honest I wanted one before I bought a bong but the local retail had these very expensive ones only. Now I know that you can get the same glass from China directly without the extra markup. I will post back which one I got eventually, thanks again!!

    @CIWYW, some retail stores have cheap China glass, others mixed in w/ good & great glass & then there's the top of the line glass shops - a price point for everyone. There's really a lot of beautiful & expensive great glass to be had, and if you have a good eye & know exactly what you want in a bubbler, you can get some well made glass for a modest price. But, first, IMO, it's wise to buy a couple/few inexpensive pieces until such time as you know what you truly want in a rig before spending any big, or at least, bigger, bucks.

    BTW, I do all that work typing that post & typing my fingers to the bone for you & you don't even like my post. :( :disgust:

    :cool:

    Oh shit sorry haha, I keep forgetting that you can like posts here on this platform. Nevertheless, thanks again mate! For now I am a beginner so I am really happy with these glass pieces out of China, my hydratube / bubbler is fucking amazing!

    I'll post back here when I'm a professional, but that can take a while, for now DHGate is perfecto for me!

    I suppose I can post this here too since it was only $30 Shipped!!! a Brownboyglass (American made, US artist.) I get a lot of my glass at auction on IG so it's way below retail, sometimes you can get a real deal!

    This is a little amber travel piece with a 3 hole gill perc that gives no splash! Perfect little travel dab cannon!

    Cute, handy piece. I've been looking for a small, hand-held piece.

    @mrbonsai, how does one find out when & where glass auctions are being held on line? What do you google for: bubblers, bongs, water rigs auctions?

    Sorry guys this is my fault
    for reposting a comment from a different thread
    It put it out of context


    I guess disagreements are probably an inevitable part of good dialogue



    ..If you could pretend I didn’t do it

    You need an Instagram account and you just have to search for hashtags like #glassauction #bangerhanger and others. Eventually you will find some artists you like who frequently hold auctions and just have to follow them and try and scoop one.

    yeah, hashtags like #glassauction or #glassforsale are a good start. You can follow my artists, I follow about 2500 and see at least 50 rigs for sale or auction across my feed on any given day. I'm @Mrbonsai710 on IG :)

    You can also check facebook groups like "Big Game Glass Hunters" "American Glass under $100" and "American glass under $500"

    Your collection is to die 4!

    My first piece is so thick?

    U shouldn't call your company THICK GLASS when it's 5mm at best?

    hello

    May i get a quick input for this piece?
    https://www.dhgate.com/product/12-quot-glass-bongs-slyme-green-american/393855068.html

    I am able to get it local for a good deal so retail is not the point.. tough if you say retail is already a bargain because it’s fucking incredible or whatnot just tell me:

    Do you think this piece is nice for vapebonging? I rarely have concentrates on hand but if I get some I might use it for that too: tough from what I read it’s way too tall for this.

    TL;DR
    Your opinion on this Clover recycler, is it worth it? How is the function?
    And utterly: is it lead-free/is the seller known?
