    I actually really like that hydrant. Would pick it up in a second if it did not have the logo.

    I love the feeling of hitting a reverse showerhead like that.

    Logos are spoilers, a good soak in simple green and/or an ultrasonic clean usually removes the logos.:tup:

    Hey guys, do you know if the Herborizer Sherlock has a chinese cheap equivalent ? I love glass but I need taste, and water annihilates all taste for me.

    not sure about your question , but I do vape native @ a lower heat to get the flavor out then move on over to the bubbler/ glass piece to bump up heat and access more heat resistant compounds ( sedation)

    I can bear with the heat when I vape dry up to a certain point, but vaping through water suppresses all the taste (even the roasted taste), which is unpleasant to me (to vape something tasteless). So I figured using glass without water could be an option and the sherlock seems to be a nice set up (especially the version with a whip)

    You can piece together a cheap alternative to the Herbo flexi with lab glass like an 18mm claisen or an 18mm 3 way or an 18mm reducer like these

    (+ a cork, a stand and maybe a whip adapter)

    as @daoist mentions, a smaller bubbler with less water will retain some flavors...

    Rattle cans have the least amount of flavor robbing in my collection.:myday:

    Which rattle can is your preferred?

    I got sick of Stevenmz fucked up version(QC gone to shit) that I got Yinmin5 to make a VaporAsylum Version,
    https://www.dhgate.com/product/amaz...glass-water-pipe/474981921.html#mfavit-1-null
    This is my favorite but I have heard that other customers got dodgy versions from them as well (even though I sent diagrams with min-max levels for everything, typical Chinese QC, hit or miss)
    I like this style for sitting back in a recliner but for at the work bench or bar I prefer,
    https://www.dhgate.com/product/saml-glass-26cm-tall-bong-diffusion-pump/476462145.html#mfavit-8-null
    I think both are worth having and will replace them when I finally drop and break them.(I have 1 FC RC that survived a 3-foot drop onto cement and it only chipped the base, the cleisen in it exploded on impact.:tup:

    Ahhhh, I see, thank you. I thought I'd maybe missed out on some previously unseen RC but I think I have seen you posting the VA version before.

    Thanks for the links!

    I want to create something similar to the McFinn's Triple Filtered Bubbler from Scientific Inhalations. A nice simple piece I've admired for the last decade or so.

    https://sipipes.com/product/mcfinns-original-triple-filtration-glass-bubbler/

    On their main sales page, they had a bunch of AMAZING looking glass with carbon filters built into the glass downstems. I personally think those look way better than the glass piece above. :)

    I already have the glass for the carbon and cotton glass filters, For the main glass body and mouthpiece, I'm thinking the FC-UFO from Steven would be a great pair? I'm also posting this here because I want to know if anyone here can recommend a similar setup to the FC-UFO thats ships from the US; or another DHgate with a different perc, I'd love a stereo matrix instead of what the FC-UFO offers. :)

    I would imagine all that filtration/cotton/carbon adds quite a bit of restriction.. and would add significantly to maintenance.

    I use a carbon & cotton filter when I'm naughty and combust on occasion.
    It works beautifully for that in removing a lot of the nastiness.

    But I don't see any need to use it with vaping. Maybe a tuft of cotton but not the carbon.
    It's not needed and it completely strips flavor and imparts it's own slightly offputting flavor.
    With combustion this trade off is well worth it, I'd say it's not with vaping.

    Yep, fucking useless for vaping might be good for smoking but that is not relevant here.:myday:

    Edit, totally irrelevant to this thread...the thread title says 'Cheap'

    Nah I wasn’t going to be using it for vaping. I only posted it here because I wanted some similar suggestions to the FC-UFO :\
