    Do you need to use the whip to hook up the mflb? or can the end of the stem on the bowl piece fit in the mflb draw hole?

    I was about to buy the $40 Vapor Bubbler for a friend until I saw it has an 18mm downstem.
    So instead I'm buying it for myself :D

    order placed today~

    Trust me... been done tried. :doh:

    Just a tad too big. You will screw up your box, trying to make it fix, tempting as it is.

    Couple of my favorite setups I used with the Infamous. Broke one perc and gave away other though.

    If your Vapor Bubbler's mouthpiece ever drops and breaks, I found the VB Original's mouthpieces are sold separately here for $19-25 depending on shipping.

    Then I realized, that could be half the price of the whole piece itself :lol:

    A friend asked me for my Infamous 40$ bub yesterday to use it for smoking... As much as I love the little bub I had to say yes... I prefer him smoking from a small waterpipe than rolling all the time. Anyway I used the money and some more to fund a 250ml Ehle straight with ice pinches and a diffuser from the same company. I believe it will serve me better as my all day driver than both the Infamous and my Saxo. Saxo feels too much sometimes and you can't just through it in a small backpack without serious protection if needed so. I hope it proves a good buy... All I have heard for the Ehle are praises so... :D Diffusion wise it should be better than the infamous and should provide a bit smoother hits especially with some ice cubes in it. Anybody who has/had both to chime in?

    Depends on the downstem!
    The stock downstems most EHLE bongs come with wont diffuse better than 3 skinny slits, but the hand-punched holes EHLE diffused downstem should function awesome.

    (Double post but can't edit)

    Just a heads-up on the $40 Vapor Bubbler: I heard back from "Tayyab", does not come with any keck clips this time.

    Luckily I added one of the $1.99 14mm ones they had for the mouthpiece to my order. :smug:

    I tried to order then and the emailed me they didn't have any. I wish he would have said we will send them when we get them oh well.

    I just emailed them and asked to have them sent when they come in. Haze I think I put my order in before yours but maybe I didn't get the clips in time. If it needs it and they used to send it they should mail them to all of us after they come in. I am sure they will fit in a regular envelope and since plastic won't break. It will cost all of 41 cents or however much a stamp is now.

    Well I got my two SSFG showerhead diff straight tubes with worked slides. They look surreal I have not vaked out of them yet. I got the clip on one of them it was very hard to connect now I don't know how to remove it I think I should have stretched and worked the clip before connecting it. I'm worried please help!!!

    The Infamous doesn't need Keck clips. Just don't ever grab it by the mouthpiece... it WILL fall. They sent me some, when I ordered... but they were pieces of @#$%, one was broken. They were the real hard plastic kind.

    Mike aka oregonglassblower, has actually sent me the best keck clips. Nice and flexible, but strong as Hell. I use one on the Infamous and the other on my SSFG Travel Beaker.

    FB... to remove, if they're the plastic ones. Just place one hand to hold it from spinning and be able to give a pull (I grab it by the middle plastic strap connecting the larger/smaller sides), then take a finger and press away and outwards on one of the open ends of the clip. That should spread it far enough to slip off.

    Well do BDV, no picking it up from the mouth piece...I think I can remember that. It is good to know I don't need it unless I need to pick it up from the mouth piece...we will see when it comes if that will be my chosen way.

    Ok so old school question or gross question. Back in the day I rarely changed my bong water. I was watching your video on rez stuff and you said you change the water every three days. Is that because of smell or grim that tastes bad? Or is it just for the pretty?

    Also on the rez stuff, I don't think there was an answer to if it removes more actives then just water if you happen to know.

    The mouthpiece on mine, is a pretty solid connection. While the piece doesn't need keck clips, if available, I would certainly use them. The mouthpiece is a tempting spot to grab. Though, even with the clip... I just broke myself of the urge to grab it there. Its small and light enough, to grab anywhere.

    As for the RezBlock, I didn't change my water that much, unless I was traveling back in the day. We used to think it was a good idea, to strain and scrape that nasty black tar when herb was scarce. 3 days was nothing back then. 3 days now? I'd puke. Except for... RezBlock. It doesn't let the residual stick or clump. It breaks it down, that's why it looks so murky in the video.

    As for removing other stuff, such as actives in your herb? No. I haven't noticed any change in my medications, nor amount I have to use. If you're referring to things like hard water deposits, I'm not sure on that. I use only distilled water. HOWEVER, once you have given the piece a full clean-out, including removing hard-water deposits (couple nights soaking in Simple Green, should take care of that)... I believe the RezBlock, will indeed block that stuff. It just doesn't let things stick to the glass.

    I probably won't keep water/RezBlock in my pieces for more than 2 or 3 days. I mostly likely it, because its reopened my entire glass collection. Not having to worry about ISO washes, when all it requires now, is a warm/hot water rinse... makes using hard to clean pieces, enjoyable once again.

    You don't vape your reclaim or give it away? Here in Ohio it would be like BHO.

    I forgot that was when I combusted and a shit load younger. I suppose with vaping only now it would be gross. I think you have hard water in cali and we have very hard water where I am so how do you clean it. You said you put distilled in to use but do you wash it with distilled. I know if I used regular water it will be one big calcium deposited bubbler.

    I haven't find the need so far to use special products for the water. I just put half a teaspoon of salt in the fresh water and after 1 or two days of usage it gets crystal clear again with some hot water and dish soap. When it starts building up salts from the water, a quick shake with some vinegar gives it the new shine again.. ;) Why the RezBlock if you clean your pieces every or every other day?

    You know damn well I don't want to clean that often. Once a week if I must but won't be happy. First we will see how much I use it.

    Rinse with plain old tap. The only piece that seems to have issues with that, so far... is a bubbler that shall remain nameless. I'm soaking it in some Purple Power right now, then I'll try again.

    That's what I'm trying to avoid. Way, too involved.

    When I'm ready for a water change out, or if I'm going to store more than a few days... rinse w/ warm water. Refill... or back in my cabinet... done.

    Yea...cause I am supposedly getting it tomorrow and if tracking is wrong the next day. I don't want to just stare at it. I suppose rinse it from dust and fill with bottled water as per BDV ok so it isn't distilled lol and get to vaping.
