    So how are your slits? Do they all fire?

    I have the Infamous as well, been using it with my Buddha recently. I need to check out myself in the mirror to see which of my slits are firing.

    None in my mouth but the glass mouthpiece would get wet.
    :lol:


    This is actually the setup i've used a few times, and did in the video.
    It's a 14mm whip adapter connected to a whip connected to a non-diffused 18mm downstem.

    Because all the openings in this weird mouthpiece are wider than the hole of the glass one it comes with, there is less drag. It is also very ergonomic for me as I'm still waiting for my bent-neck tube to be made.

    Yep us woman love pyrex...ok off topic but are you saying that the new company the glass isn't as good cause i have bought from them. I like corningwear as well. I will read the two links.

    I will take a vid of my bubbler firing wed if I can figure out how to. I might get no water in my mouth because all my slits aren't firing I dunno. I still think it is cute and wouldn't want it any bigger. I suppose if all the slits were firing and I got back splash I wouldn't like that either.

    Now were is boobs...he hasn't been around in a while and his input is fun.

    I would guess the bubbler you guys and gal are talking about is made in India. I do love the size and looks of it and with the free vape elbow it's going to be hard to beat. But I would go easy on it and not take it into the mosh pit or boil it. I wish I had the money I would buy it!

    I'm still at work so I will check it out when I get home. I will have to do the mirror test as well.

    Make sure not to put the mirror too close to your slits, or it will tend to fog.

    :lol:

    Sorry y'all, but the juvenile in me is strong.

    Do they fire the same? Same splashback? Same water levels?

    Sorry I didnt get to try the mirror test last evening, I ended up working real late and then passing out once I got home. I am actually kind of happy because tonight I wont have to just do the mirror test alone. I will do it with my Pax. :) Tubes here!!!

    Seems like I read somewhere (don't recall where) that soda lime glass is actually stronger (resistant to breaking from bumps/falls) than borosilicate glass as long as there's no thermal shock, and that the only real advantage to boro is the resistance to thermal shock problems. But I know very little about this topic, and I'm not all that confident in the one source where I read that. Can anyone speak to this issue? :science: :shrug:

    If it's true, that would suggest to me that--other than needing to make sure to be careful to avoid thermal shock during cleaning-- "soft glass" water tools might be better for vaporists, since, at least in general, "vape-bonging" doesn't actually heat up the water tool very much at all, so we might as well use the "strongest" glass possible that's least resistant to breakage. What do y'all think?

    I will check this evening after work. I believe they all fire the same since they all fire. No splashback, always a similar water level, a little above the slits...

    So I get my tubing. I got everything set up and I am satisfied. Still didnt get to do the mirror test but will soon.
    This is for all the peepz who recommended, bought, own, tried this infamous $40 bubbler.
    Have fun and dont make fun of me. Im new to glass and didnt expect to get my a## kicked like that lol.
    The Pax was on high btw, and my lighting sucks. Enjoy and goodnight. I cant do another video after that.


    I cleared the hit about 30 seconds later lol

    Yes it is, I guess you can call it their updated version. They were out of stock for a long time and just got these in about a week ago. The image you see on the site is their old model, you can search these last few pages for pictures of the actual bubbler you'll recieve.

    Mmmm..I finally got mine today with six strongly firing slits. I am fully impressed with it. I overestimated the size it would be and underestimated the power it packs. Thanks to all those who recommended it!

    Super tempted to grab this as a travel piece even though I already ordered a bubbler from Lev...

    Hopefully they'll run out soon and I won't have a choice :lol:

    The glass part with the vape tube attachment in the pics on their site, does that come with it?

    Yes.
    Mine also came with two 18mm keck clips, but they're so tight I am very hesitant to use them.

    Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed the video as well. I thought it was hilarious because I was so confident going in, I got ready to pull my Pax out after the initial hit around the 19-20 second mark and then realized i was dead so I dropped my camera and proceeded to cough my ass off. LOL
