    I had not seen that size before, thanks. The medium version of it with the ten arm perc has always been one of my favs, except for the logo.

    That's pretty much all I was going to say against it. There are a lot of options at ALT in that price range mind you.

    Haha, I know, but only a few of them meat all of my own personal demands unfortunately.

    Other ones are the Ions and one or two of the Manifest bubs, but that's about it. But we're probably in the wrong thread to discus any of those.. :tup:

    How is a piece of glass worth 200$? Is it really worth that price? Can someone explain to me the breakdown of the cost?

    I'm not sure if anyone posted this guys stuff jhanpixel on iOffer. His stuff looks nice and he has good reviews. I'm having him send me This Guy. He seems to have a lot of nice looking stuff in the 100-175 range, as well as plenty of under 100. Not all bubblers but seems a good deal none the less.

    In other news, I picked this up at my LHS it is a 12 inch HVY mini flask. I took some pictures and a vid to show you what can be had sub $50. At that price I'm not getting a world class bubbler, but I think I got more then my money's worth.

    I think that's a good choice Al. Can't really go wrong with SSFG. I have one of their pieces and have heard nothing but good things from others.

    C'mon Dreamerr, you know you want one. Just pick something and get on the glass train. I must admit I'm really loving the $13.00 Lev,s bubbler and I think you would too.

    Yep, for that price(says $13 in case he tries to change it lol) I want a few dozen:rofl: I wasn't on that list or I would have just because. Now it is the regular price I think.

    Nice grab. If I didn't already have a straight tube I loved I'd have jumped on it myself - I definitely considered it. Should be a nice little vapor piece.

    Okay fine you got me. I meant $130.00. And that is and was the list price I believe as you didn't need to be on the list for this one. It's the smaller of the two. I like it a lot.

    Then you need some reinforced joint or something I think and a clip and of course a gong stem or is it a reducer. I am having enough issues with where to put the ssv. I am so confused at the moment. It is in my way and so easy to just use all day long...that is so dangerous :D

    Hey guys, I decided against the Vertigo and I just picked up an awesome C2 showerhead bub from Brothers with Glass. Its a great price with their Black Friday sale. Their service has been fantastic too.

    Hi Gammy,

    May I make a suggestion to only put in enough water to go about a 1/4" above the slits ? It wld preform much better I believe.

    you mean on the chamber with the tree perc? yeah I've corrected this mistake since making the vid, you can actually see me getting a little drink of bong water on the last inhale ;)

    The problem with this bubb is that to get the cool bubbles going in the first chamber, the water needs to be pretty high and it spills into the second chamber a bit. But it's not a big problem tbh.

    What's more of an issue is that this is the second bubb I got from Gogo and it's still not satisfying. The first one was broken and they were nice enough to send me another one immediately, but this one is like the ugly cousin of the family. It's not broken but it's just not pretty. Some of the parts look stained or scratched. It doesn't affect the performance but when you buy something online you want it to look like in the picture, right? In any case they offered a refund but only if I send it back. I told them to send me a prepaid return box. Haven't heard from them since. Maybe they're sending me the box, maybe not. If in 2 weeks it's not here, I'll have my credit card company reimburse me.



    Come on Gogo, redeem yourself! :wave:

    Looks a lot like the bubbler some of us got from ioffer for around $26-$22 (without the bowl), except the ioffer one has a 5 tree perc instead of 6. For the $22 I paid, it is a good travel dabbing piece for me. The slits are cut too thin so they do not fire but for $22 I was not expecting anything more than what I got.

    then it is either this or this

    have a mflb now and plan on using it with that for now... maybe lsv or cloud in the future, depending on how the wife takes to water vaping
