    someone posted link for Alternative 29/18mm Showerhead and tree percs for FC mod
    (Better Check the length first tho - some are too long)


    One day I found that a storz and Bickel dosing capsule
    drops right down into the bowl-shaped part of FC mod showerhead perc
    Just below the joint ..where downstem narrows
    ..that’s deep enough so that you can then use it like a sticky brick
    with just a short 18/14 adapter on top for a flame intake

    It’s borosilicate so it’s flame-proof but adapter cracks after a few weeks if you keep using it
    ( ..I found lol)
    So I now use 18mm quartz nail for my flame intake
    https://www.dhgate.com/product/high-quality-quartz-nail-10mm-14mm-18mm-quartz/408087448.html?skuid=438054716271206404#pdsosim-2-5|null:9001:r1610159372

    Works very nicely

    In my experience CCG, Sunshine Store and Yingmin are totally reliable. For best quality CCG gets my vote.

    I would be looking for a stainless steel or titanium alternative to the S&B aluminum stuff.:myday:
    I only use them in my Mighty as that is full of aluminium and does not have the best taste anyway.:tup:

    CCG has my heart too. My single uptake and straight fab torus are the best rigs i've owned so far.

    Do you mean it’s not safe
    or just that it affects the taste
    Are there alternatives I should look at?
    Did I read something about baskets?

    Edit
    I have used mini Vap basket in mighty

    The Mighty has a nodel with a medical certificate but you do not see people using aluminium pots and pans anymore so I will err on the side of safety, but that is just me.:tup:
    I only really mean the taste, beer is better out of a stubby than out of a can IMO.:wave:

    Now back on topic, anyone have this bong and is it any good for dabs;

    I just wanted to let everyone know what TAG sent me in response to my question about the glass they use: “Most TAG pieces are made with Chinese boro, some higher end items like the Fab Kleins and Kleins are produced with US-33 Boro and German Schott Boro” so they do still use higher quality boro but only in the more expensive models it seems. Well I still think they have high quality and well made glass pieces but the quality of the highly recommended dhgate sellers is unparalleled for the cheap price tag. On another note I recently dropped my CCG ball rig and broke it but for the price I wasn’t even that mad

    I don't have that specific piece, but I have a 9" straight fab with FOL perc from CCG that I use a lot for both logs and dabs. Mine has 14mm joint though and I suppose you are looking for an 18mm.

    A drop down could convert the rig to 18mm and collect reclaim that might be helpful if you make edibles with abv and reclaim. Not many dab rigs are gona be 18mm but I also prefer that size bc I use my evo with everything. And that one you linked is pretty old so nowhere as nice as the new fol perc version @bizwaxzion linked above.

    You might consider this one from Steven - it's a little large for me, but one of the party favorites for dabs and has an 18m joint. I bought it for use with logs, but needs a faster draw to function correctly.

    Just ordered this, and sold my CCG SOL piece. Hopefully will be decent. I almost went with this one, but the form factor of the inline perc one was too good.

    Anyone try a mobius atom off DHGate yet?

    Loved my other mobius knockoff so much, seriously considering dropping the coin for a real Micro Matrix II or Atom. I really am trying to resist the big spend and hoping this will satisfy:

    And your point is what?

    So are all the d020s out there and all the others. There are no original ideas on dhgate. If you don't want to see counterfeits, this is not a good thread for ya:cool:

    Why does a guy in China need to eat less........feed his kids less......than anyone else?
    I believe in capitalism so why would I not want to export that there.......I know it is a communist country but that will change as their market grows interconnected to ours on a individual level......not strictly controlled by government \politics.

    My point is you are breaking forum rules by posting a link.

    Did you see the modnote? Got the point now?

    Thanks for the link, I was hoping to get the original as the FC Rattle Can is my favorite DHGate bong, unfortunately, I cannot find an 18mm female joint version like my DHGate unit. $160 for the 14mm male version does not seem too expensive for US glass. I did notice in the thread that there were QC problems and that was when they were $400ea.:razz:
    I will keep looking for my perfect 18mm dab bong.:tup:

    I was wondering if the sneaky Pete hydrotube is American glass or a rebrand China glass?
