    I've been farming this thread for ideas enough, figured it's time to contribute. A friend just turned me on to this guy: http://colieglass.jumpseller.com / http://colieglass.tumblr.com . A 3rd party started a thread on his behalf some time ago, but seems he wasn't really up to the demand yet?

    Here's my favorite so far:

    USGlobal doesn't seem to offer a form of shipping though, tried ordering a piece a while back.

    Looks like they ship, just not for orders <$150. That's tempting though, that's 3-5 pieces of glass. Too bad there's no mention of joint sizes on anything I've looked at so far:rolleyes:.

    Edit: beat to the punch.

    You guys should check your local headshops if you can. I scored this little guy for $59.99 and it came with a nail and dome too. The one pictured is a slyme dome I bought. 5-slit gridded inline, 14.4. Feels to be 5mm glass.

    Are you using it much with your Ultra? How does the restricted draw affect stackage with the inline perc?

    I'd have to get some money together for it (rx refill day was yesterday :rolleyes:) and drive back out and hope they still have some. I got it on Monday, and there were only three of them, one of which had an open-ended stem, and the other one wasn't... as pretty. Even the girl helping me pointed out that it looked a bit different (the can was a little bigger, the inline was kinda messed up, more obvious mouthpiece angle.) It's also got some bubble spots, around the rim of the mouthpiece, as well as at the bottom center of the can, and two little batches on the joint. Pictures of this at the bottom.

    I saw the same piece at two other headshops I went to while I was looking for a female/female adapter so I could just use the GonG MFLB whip. They were $100 and $125.

    It's not a "perfect" piece either. The inline isn't perfectly straight, you can see in the picture that the inline is only partially fully covered because it angles down a wee bit. It also seems to like firing out of the left side more than the right side unless you draw a bit faster. I can shoot a stacking video of it if you were serious :) Unfortunately I have no goodies today to show you actual vapor production, but suffice it to say that I don't regret getting it at all. Locally blown at $60, I'll definitely be sad if anything were to happen to it, but I won't be out -too- much. It's definitely going to be my travel piece, and I haven't even touched my straight tube since getting it.

    The Ultra on my desk has the AVA on it, I just happened to set it down to take a picture of the glass. For shits and giggles, I decided to put the mouthpiece of the AVA directly on top of the male joint (creates a very good seal) and hit my e-cig through it. Works just fine for it, but you can see the problem that arises when trying to use the DART upside down. This was easily remedied by taking off the glass GonG joint and the baby stem that came with my Magic Flight Water Pipe Whip, inserting the whip into the male joint, and then fitting the tubing over the mouthpiece of the DART. I have a video that I posted on the MFLB thread of me using it with the tube.

    Thanks for the vid. I use the Dart occasionally slipped upside-down into a downstem. It's perfect with a small silicone tubing sleeve/collar close to the threads, to stop it just short of where the joint would otherwise seal against the TV body. Evo and T1 heads work fine upside down of course, and 14mm female is a perfect fit on a bare Evo with o-ring and ptfe tip with ufo installed (my method for hash).

    For the Rev/Dart you just have to keep it extremely clean, with no excess to run down the sides or condense and make a mess. I position a small dab on just the very tip, and pre-melt a few seconds first with it upright. I wish this method was a little easier and sustainable, because i find tubing connectors really annoying, and a downward angled J-shaped joint adapter not so appealing either.

    Yeah my concern with using it upside down is the oil running down the sides and blocking the UFO, making a mess of it and preventing me from drawing. I don't mind the tubing seeing as it's not too long to begin with.

    Thanks! BTW That's medical grade oxygen hose and a downstem from my spare mouthpiece plus a little well placed heat shrink tubing.

    I just noticed that also. I'm not to keen on that design. I'll stick with my infamous.

    Looks like it would have some mad drag to it. Kinda funny as to why they would put a showerhead inside of a tube, ruining the percolation in the process... That's probably why it's $25 instead of $60...
