    While I've seen some wild stuff on IG - I'm currently digging my @710Coils 25mm opaque through one of Steven's kleins.

    I doubt that.

    Look for FC-UFO. I don’t own it but heard it is easy to clean.

    Recyclers like FTK are easier to clean IF they don’t have percs

    Thanks. I already have one of that, an "original" FC-MOD from the first batch. I forgot also the seller (steven?). I misplaced it and forgot where it is! :ninja:

    You mean StevenLMZ79.

    My glass is in the rotation. But one of my favorites bc of its versatility and currently in use is the FC-UFO
    I especially use it for seshs with the whip connected with a clip. So it has a firm place to stand and you've just to reach the whip to the next. Least danger of clumsy a/o stoney accidents. Had too many accidents with broken glass cause of that in the past. Stupid fuckers!
    Using it alone it delivers a good taste just with the mouthpiece.

    For use while lying in my bed my absolute favourite is the Matrix Sidecar from Steven. It's the safest to hold. You just need to hang it in the finger bow between thumb and index finger, you don't even need to hold it and it's hanging absolute safe in the finger bow. BTW you can choose the side for the bent neck for your liking to hold.

    I ordered a piece from Steven and paid with SEPA transfer
    Never ever do that on DHGate.
    They want me to believe that my money disappeared. I’m contacting Dhgate CS chat every couple of days. Bob or Christian from CS chat keep saying to way 24/48 hours. The 3-7 days they told initially it would take, have already passed.
    I gave them my receipt from the bank and they still keep asking for it every time I log on the chat. Such a pity when something goes wrong.

    Yep, communications with Chinese can drive you crazy sometimes. It's something like "Candid Camera"

    The one on the left I've personally tested positive for lead. I'd avoid these all.

    Thank you so much. I have the matrix sidecar, but never use it. Knowing a strait through F->M will make it useful helps, and I have the adapter already, so I can use this today. I love adapters, and I love helpful advice from FC members.

    In my experiences, while the opereators themselsves are seemingly nice people trying to help as courteously as they can, the whole customer service system at dghate is appauling and in dire need of radical overhaul.
    Simple matters are probably run of mill enough, but anything unusual which needs some actual brain/consciousness and initiative to connect a few dots and authorize a correction....well, just be very very patient and persistent, and hope that it doesnt happen ih the first place.

    I was totally unsatisfied with the whole system and process when I had a complicated issue (for them anyway, it was nothing at all really and never should have happened in the first place.)

    I still havent shopped there since early last year when the muppets stopped accepting Hsbc.

    Good luck bro, hang in there. You should get justice. But make sure every time you speak to them, you emphasise just how terrible and unsatisfactory their whole customer service process is for anyhing beyond simple every day robotic assistance.

    Really spell it out. Like- please give this feedback to yoyr superiors. This is shocking and unacceptable customer service. I am very very unhappy with how this matter has been dealt with etc etc. Just complain like a right unhappy bugger (Im sure you already have.) :goon:

    My money transfer got refunded without any message from them or the bank. The comment from their bank was something like "unrecognized sum". I had to wait for the transaction to appear in my account report a few days later, CS is useless.

    I just received a FC Mod from the Gate, the seller only sent the matrix down stem, no showerhead. The seller sent me 2 showerheads for my trouble...they were delivered to somewhere in Queensland?? DHgate stepped in as the order was so old and issued me a full refund!:tup:
    If you are patient, DHGate is a great place to shop...3-5 weeks is normal delivery time for me and as I break a lot of glass I can put up with the odd problems for the price of their gear.

    One unit I USE overly is some piece from dhgate with a mouthpiece from OGB.com.
    I never liked the big caveman like mouth holes on the BonG’s that came out!

    Small mouthpiece’s will be popular in a 1,000 years or in a future CIVILIZATION!
    @bizwaxzion i use whatever I have setup 4 FLOWER!
    Some people like smaller bubbler?
    CUSTOMIZE 2. Fit your preference.
    I use bubbler’s for portable vaporizers
    Medium cans 4 logs
    Large cans 4 desktop & I personally like a larger water pipe 4 ROSIN!
    This is my program?
    Everyone like something different!
    Do what work’s 4 U?

    I am looking for a water pipe to use with a woodscents. These two pipes - the matrix sidecar and FC-UFO are my top choices but I would love to get something with a little color/design. Anyone have any other recommendations for stuff that would be hard to go wrong with?

    I really like the FC-UFO but I noticed in videos of it being used some of the water seems to get up in and collect in the joint where the stem/whip attaches and that kind of bugs me. I also really want to use the 14mm glass wpa that comes with the WS, would a regular old 14mm to 18mm adapter work in this?

    As a side note - what kind of clip would I use to connect the whip to the FC-UFO? I know it wouldn't be needed but I'm curious cause I'd like to use one if I did end up with that piece. Thanks.

    Never had this water issue with my UFO. A clip for holding the whip adapter is absolutely recommended, esp. if you use it in a sesh and pass the whip around. It slips pretty fast out of the adapter if not secured with a clip while this move. The adapter tends to screw out the joint because of the pretty stiff tube that often lifts the adapter. That doesn't really matter so long the adapter isn't falling on a hard table or something else. I already smashed 2 adapters this way until I decided to better use a clip. A clip is ugly but does the job well and you still can turn the adapter and whip with ease.

    Picked this up on a whim - somewhat disappointed. Needs a drop down for use with a log but works ok with a banger. Better dry than with water...
