    Apparently DHGate's 15 anniversary is coming up so they are having a presale now thru the 20th.

    Looks like stores can opt into an 18-20% discount (really only 2-4% more then their usual everyday "sales") I see items with it at a couple of stores including Steven but CCG doesn't have it.. yet at least.

    There are coupons too, $2 off $12, $5 off $39, $8 off $69, $20 off $169.

    The blurb makes mention of spend $29 get a $12 coupon but there are no terms...
    If I had to guess its a coupon you can earn now during the presale that can be used on the actual date of the anniversary? Dunno exactly.
    I do see a banner in my cart about it at least...

    I was going to get something tomorrow anyways so this works out perfect.
    I wonder if the sale on the 20th will be even better.. looks like I might be making a couple orders this month lol.

    Tbh, mine is SO much like the top one, I think I might have got that exact one :D

    EDIT: Actually, the angle of the top of the internal tubing on mine is way too close to the bowl, which could easily hinder the height of the 45 degree angle cut if they arent careful. Just another thing to point out to them if you order.

    Yep, plus the internal tubing I just edited about in the previous post.

    I dont mind being the guinea pig to make sure further ones are made right! :)

    At least the one I have functions fine.

    Besides, I need to buy a back up anyway as I 'coincidentally' smashed my OG FC RC this morning :D

    EDIT: Gives its all a go faster lean with the drop down attached :)

    EDIT 2: Personally, I'd ask them to make a more slightly substantial mouthpiece too.

    Damn.:ugh: Oh well, better that than a genuine Mothership, still hurts though, especially if it was a good version (I have one FC RC with a big chunk missing from the base that I just can't throw out as it works so well)
    Maybe I should grab a goose by the neck while they are a bit cheaper, I might message them to make sure they get a unit to my preferred points.

    My goose neck came in, it also has the shorter pipe and angled joint, mine also looks exactly like the photos on dhgate. All that said though it functions amazingly, great flavour and I have very little fear of the flowerpot tipping it with such a high water level and wide base.
    I would very much like to get my hands on one with a cleaner build in the future.

    I am considering getting the D020 or the mobius matrix sidecar for my enano.
    I am really stuck on choosing.
    which is better.
    which will have more diffusion/cooler vapour?
    They are both the same height.

    The sidecar has a better perc then the regular D020 but there is the D020-D version with a matrix perc so at that point its pretty much just a personal preference of style for the neck.

    FC-187 has a significantly larger can and displaces more water so does more cooling. It is WAY thicker and heavier. The D020 has noticeably greater airflow and works better with low flow vapes like VapCaps.
    That being said, I like them both very much and use them both quite a lot.

    I don't have a D020, but I have a Mobius Matrix Sidecar knockoff, and It suits me quite well.
    If I broke it, I'd most certainly buy another.

    IMO Possible negatives to this piece:
    45* stem for an E-nano or an Air is not ideal
    45* stem is not ideal to using a cloud buddy (Y adapter that is super handy with a log vape)
    14mm doesn't feel as solid as 18mm when it comes to stacking things like cloud buddies or ash catchers
    Tree percs can be delicate and are considered out dated.
    Probably a pain to clean

    Positives:
    Price
    Shipping speed

    Option C LOL

    Get a big glass piece heavy hitter for the enano, of course the air can join in on fun but its not the best for large water pipes:

    https://www.dhgate.com/store/produc...ights/245686309.html?skuid=462712428972392450

    Then get something like this for the air and enano (when you want more flavor):

    https://www.namastevaporizers.co.uk...als-14mm-glass-water-tool?variant=19788074823

    https://vapefiend.co.uk/collections/water-tools/products/budgie-vaporizer-water-tool

    You can use the hydro tube with the stock ecig styled air mouthpiece.

    I have a water pipe just like that namastevape one (but bought at puffitup) and I absolutely love it, I have had the pinnacle version years ago and like the puffitup model better because the mouthpiece is flared.

    I don't like a large, rimless mouthpiece that my lips go into like with a bong since I don't get enough inhaling resistance. Prefer a flat disc type mp that my lips can press against.
