    Tracking on my D020 says it's out for delivery. Might be a good day:tup:

    It's been 12+ hours, where's the video, :D. Happy belated Birthday btw.

    So how long did it take to get to you? Almost an entire month?

    My tracking was accurate. I'm loving my D020, didn't think I liked small pieces either. It's like a mini Ion Reti.

    Got my D020 today. The nail that comes with this thing is like 4 inches long!! Cool little piece. It definitely has "Oil Rig" plastered all over it.

    Edit: There's a big ol crack in my perc. I just noticed it as I was cleaning it out to use for the first time. It looks stable, but it's a bummer.

    You can see the crack in the perc towards the mouthpiece side.

    I thought my HC bub from aliex had a crack in the downstem portion, looks a lot like a crack, but it also could just be a poorly made weld, that appears to be a crack. I have not seen any evidence of the area being weak so far. Not saying yours is the same way Deadshort, that sux if you got one on the perc, though I couldn't really tell in the vid, maybe it helps if you know where to look. I've been using another cracked piece sucessfully for months, it has a huge crack going though the bottom of it, but so far has maintained its integrity and stayed water tight, though its also american made 5mil glass so I don't know if the comparison works in this case. None the less, its a nice little bub, glad yours showed up, hope your crack stays put a while so you can get some enjoyment out of it.

    My D020 is a little beast. Paired with my cloudpal(generic cloudbuddy) and my cloud it's doing a great job. Mine looks to be very well made. No bad welds, and the dewar is very smooth. Perc could be a tad lower but it's not super high either. Both my mariposa eBay reducers also fit it perfectly and my solo hits nicely in it as well. My only complaint is the cloud is right in my face when I hit it, but I figured it would be. For $27 I'm pretty happy. Thanks for the info on it everyone!

    For the money it's an exceptional buy. I agree the perc should be lower in a small piece like this. I much prefer my Mobius Ion with my EVO, and the much heavier original Cloud is even more of a mismatch for me. The D020 is a great match for smaller vapes though.

    In the end it took almost an entire month, 28 days :\
    But now that I have it I'm really happy, best 31$ spent in glass ever!

    Just got my cloudpal in the mail. F'n sweet. :rockon::clap: This thing clears like a beast. Had to pull out the Mobius to do it justice.

    With the addition of the D020 + cloudpal, I feel like I scored an awesome combo that's easy on my wallet. Thanks for the link alltoreup and whoever found the D020. :)

    Now I have VAS, will it ever end? :goat:

    So it looks like I may have been ripped of on this item. Everyonedoesit.com gave me a tracking number, and all that arrived is $2 worth of screens (wrong size to boot) in a small envelope, with a packing slip that said the bubbler had shipped as well, even "quality checked" by packer #7. No other tracking number, order says "dispatched", there's nothing back ordered, done deal. And now the item is out of stock and cannot be ordered at all.

    I have submitted a support ticket, but have not heard back yet. And after reading some of the recent criticism of these guys, I have no confidence that they will make things right:
    http://www.trustpilot.com/review/ww...lationId=563e76f9-7b8d-47e0-aadf-c8cdd850f576

    I have a very bad feeling about this and would not recommend these guys to anybody.
    :mad:

    Sorry grokit, just saw that about your bubbler. Hopefully it will arrive in another package. Have you contacted them. Hopefully everything works out because that is a sweet looking piece.

    Edit: just saw that you did contact them. Fingers crossed it all works out.

    Thanks cv! Yeah the cloudpal was just my nickname for it. It's actually a Claisen adapter for clarification. Still love mine.


    Glad it's working for you. Had to share when I found it...everyone here has been so helpful I had to pay it back a little.:tup:

    That thing is really good. I got one and can attest for it. I really enjoy the offset joints. I think I should grab a backup at that price..

    Yeah you pay $50 for the CB + stopper. Pull any cork off a wine bottle or buy the silicone ones and you have a makeshift stopper.

    Working like a charm, :D. I have a CB already but this thing has a bigger bore on both sides and the carb side isn't at a 90 degree angle, clears in seconds. Can't wait to start getting this thing dirty, :smug:.

    [​IMG]

    I believe Aliexpress, dhgate, and Thick-quality-glass had them, but I no longer see them on there sight.

    This D020 + cloudpal only cost me 27 + 9 = for a total of $36 shipped. :whoa:
