    I know, I know...the standard perks just aren't as stylish as the SOL. It is what it is.
    Sometimes though, I like to let price rule over pizazz.

    What I don't like is the fucking logos on the ones I posted.
    Unless the company is paying me for it, I don't like me or my stuff to be a billboard advertisement.

    I agree most logos should be scarped off :D

    SoL on the "side" of the perc on my fab egg is really nice, but im guessing the great pull is coming from the "shape" of the over all piece and not the perc holes alone.


    Another topic :

    Is it possible to get the real Blazer torches off dhgate or a replica?

    Im only able to find this style:

    I was able to source F - F adapters today so I got the chance to break-in the FC-710. I chose the most flavorful strain in my collection (Aurora Temple high CBD low THC) to test this rig. What I can say is that the diffusion pump does indeed preserve flavor, better than the bigger rigs in my collection. However, I would say the CCG Straight Fab is just as flavorful and is smoother. I used the straight 14mm F to 14mm F adapter to test the rig. I also have an F - F drop down but have not used it yet. I suspect there could be a slight improvement in smoothness with the drop down.

    Overall I highly recommend the FC-710 from seller Ebizcn especially if you are after flavor. The $20 price with free shipping is icing on the cake. :tup:

    Amazingly comical question...
    Is it possible to get a real anything on DHGate?

    None of the brands on DHGate are real

    If you want real you go to the mfr. or authorized retailers.

    Thanks for the review @MasonJar. I'm spending way too much time looking at glass, deciding where to start, and you add another to consider. The diffusion pumps have caught my eye but now I'm looking into the CCG straight fab. The small size looks easy to handle.

    Sure let me re-phrase,

    I mean replicas of the blazer design, what im finding is more like a replica of the "pliers / hardware store" version, it just has a way different look to it.

    I know what you mean... there are many excellent options out there including the CCG Straight Fab. Why not get both? :)

    I've never been a huge fan of glass, probably because I've only used big pieces and always had trouble clearing them. I'm hoping a small piece is more of a draw-through instead of a fill it and clear it which should work better for me. I'm hoping to pick one piece that I'll be happy with, at least for awhile. Lots of other gear on my wants-list--gotta spread the love!

    Im sure most people in here wouldnt mind a few links for troches, since they are so very closely related to this glass we are discussing (i for 1 am dealing with chronic pain and only use this glass for dabs)

    if u looked back in this thread a few years you will see that various accessories have been posted in this thread before.

    Was that all you wanted to say or do you have something to contribute?

    :p

    Both the FC-710 and Straight Fab are relatively small... I find them both easy to clean... Come to think of it all the pieces in my collection are easy to clean. I usually clean my bongs the day after I use them. I just pour dish washing soap / hot water in a 50-50 mix filling the bong reservoir about 1/3 full. I cover the openings of the bong with saran wrap and secure these with rubber bands. I then tilt the bong end to end to let the solution flow from one end to the other without generating too much bubbles... rotating the piece as I tilt it so the solution "paints" all the insides of the bong. After about 1 to 2 minutes of this I start shaking the bong for a couple of seconds. I remove the saran wrap and rinse the bong with hot water and finally cold water so the condensation will not form inside when drying it. Bongs come out clean as new. The key for me is to wash after every use.

    I am a little OCD in keeping my bongs clean... The upside is that the vapor tastes great when I use them.

    I appreciate your input, @MasonJar! Everything in your collection is exactly what I'm looking for, especially the 3 smaller ones in the center, although probably the Rattle Can instead of the FC-710.

    How tall is the smallest rig in your picture? (left-center with the yellow-orange vapcap band) Can I ask the source? I'm looking for another small rig like that.

    The mouthpiece on that FC-710 looks thin enough to slice you, I also noted @MasonJar D020-d has the latest style thinner mouthpiece as well. My old d020-d had a nice fat mouthpiece end...not anymore. I would share my picture showing the difference but that is too hard...we need an UPLOAD FILE button ffs it's nearly 2020:cuss:

    Has anyone used the piece that PIU sells? It's hard to tell what the perc looks like from their pic so any pics would be great.

    Go to their website & contact them, asking for a pic. They'll happily oblige.

    I find Randy's integrity, genuineness & humility/respectfullness very attractive. I really like the person he is. I enjoy watching his streams.
    Three thumbs up for PIU. :tup:

    (Just wanted you, @PuffItUp, to know that all your hard work & efforts on behalf of our community are appreciated & valued. :nod: :)
