    I was wondering if I should order as well just to see if I like water 50 bucks shipped. Any opinions I forgot if you all said this is a good first trial piece.

    Will it work as it to connect to my lineup?

    Is it worth the money or just spend just under 200 on one of levs pieces...I am so confuse as always.

    The infamous got it ordered done check. Hold your sits for questions lol. If I get involved in high priced glass I am blaming all of you. I do know if I like it I will want that lattice I think.

    Bad news. That's like one of my first pieces of glass and the one that started the obsession. That little no-name bubbler took on a life of its own. Its HUGE in the world of small bubblers. People have been waiting a year, for that little sucker to reappear.

    GAS will soon take hold.

    I still have that piece, btw. Probably won't ever get rid of it, either.

    I think it would work well with at least your MFLB, Solo and INH. It's only $40 and I'm sure you could offload it without losing too much money. Still, Lev pieces ftw.



    That's your cue to buy, Dreamerr.

    My pockets hurt enough from the car being fixed yesterday or almost fixed...I don't need more bills lol. If it makes me feel good I guess it is all good. BDV, I do remember you saying you would never get rid of it. I got the email on this like the rest on this thread I had just forgotten which one this was so tis the clone and we will see what happens. I picked priority usps shipping since it was only a dollar more but I doubt cause of where I live it will make a difference between parcel and priority.

    I will report my feelings when I get it after I figure out water levels and such. I read all those threads you all directed me to but I can only learn by doing and asking questions.

    So now I will be official in the water threads lol.:brow:

    EDIT: Do I need the keck clip I can add it to my PV order if I do if they have them.

    I can't afford it either...but a sighting of that bubbler is like a sighting of Elvis.

    I have a few keck clips but never really use them, but it doesn't hurt to have a couple around.

    You'd need an 18mm one for the intake, and a 14mm one for the mouthpiece by the looks of it. :)

    You don't NEED a keck, but it's nice to have. I like the metal ones.

    so my LHS has had the authentic VB mini hydrator bubbler going for $90 sitting on the shelf since before April! I almost picked it up on their 20% off 4/20 sale but ended up having to work all day that day... I need the PRO opinion now. Do I go pick up the authentic hard to find VB mini for $80(prob will convince them that I know it's been sitting there since April so I shall haggle some) or the $40 knock off?? I thought the simplicity of the bub for $90 wasn't worth it, but sometimes the best things in life are the Simplest...

    Oh well can't change so maybe I will get the metal ones from PV with my order. Don't the metal ones scratch the glass?

    Just looked at PV lol like 9 for the clip as opposed to two bucks on the other site. Who knew, don't need it anyhow so if I like the water then I can get it with the next piece oh shit did I just say that.

    Tweek it is a clip to help hold the pieces together. I think from what I read some have a weight issues so better be safe then sorry. It doesn't seem to be an issue with this one. See I do read.

    Try a local shop if you have any around your parts. If I buy ANYthing at a shop and ask about k-clips they usually toss a couple in my bag for free. Sometimes charge .50¢, went to a different shop onetime though and got charged $5 for one. But was OK with it as I was in need of one at the moment.

    LHS aren't usually accessible so I don't go but if someone does will have them pick me up one or just get one if I ever need it online. Of course that will force me to buy more stuff oh well lol.

    Actually I will fly them an email and ask them to add it maybe they will.

    Dreamerr, you won't need the extra clip if they still ship the bubbler with one for the mouthpiece... I think they will. It's a little nice piece and it's great to take with you when to a friends house and can't get the big ones. If placed in the fridge with the water and/or add some crushed ice in the downstem it gives quite smooth hits! If I could spair the extra few bucks though I would go for the original just because it is better built. Never mind though, GAS is on the way... ;)

    Oh and the adapter for connecting the bubbler with tubing comes with a great angle that stops all ABV before entering the waterpiece. Just connect it to the INH with some blue hygienic mouthpiece. I put less than half and now the INH acts like the handle for the GonG adapter, a match made in heaven...

    Thanks Tweak!
    Wondered if anyone knows the differences between this sweet little piece and my latest,
    Tstat's Luke Wilson Bubbler
    http://fuckcombustion.com/threads/luke-wilson-bubbler.7800/
    They look similar, although the PipesDaddy looks smaller.
    Def don't need another water piece(@ 7 and climbing), but @$50 shipped, you guys endorsing and treating it's availability like a Bigfoot sighting, it feels wrong to let it pass.
    I guess I could always gift it.
    Thanks as always!

    Well, the LW is a tree perc for starters.

    This one seems like it's just a good little back up to have.

    Well, its not the be-all/end-all of bubblers. Its just a nice, cheap little bubbler. Works well, with whip vapes and the MFLB. For $40, its a nice little bubbler. Plus, the way its balanced, I used to run an 11-arm tree perc on top of it. Balanced perfectly.
