    I am NOT a glass expert. I am a novice... at best. So keep that in mind.

    Anyhow, I don’t think anyone has reviewed this piece so I decided to toss my :2c: in.

    I ordered this recently as I figured it would be a nice little piece to eventually pair with my nice little E-Nano (when it arrives). Since I plan on using my ‘Nano mostly as a travel vape, I wanted an equally small bubbler for it to "mate" with. Now, I've only had the piece a few days, so I'm still in Honeymoon Mode... but yeah, I’m really, really liking it. For $110 bucks total, with the female joint instead of the male, I feel it was definitely worth it.

    The first thing I noticed was just how frickin' tiny it actually is. The pictures, even with the measuring tape, didn't properly prepare me. This thing is miniscule! And adorable! And the ladies love it! :cool:

    The base is thick (relatively) and gives the piece a decent amount of sturdiness. The joint is reinforced. The downstem is attached to the bottom. The flared mouthpiece the way I like it. It’s just…. you know… a nice little piece.

    Definitely something cute and distinct worth adding to a collection. And absolutely perfect for on-the-go. At this point, I would most certainly recommend it as a travel piece, a "toy," or for anyone short on space and needing a mini-setup.
    I've been using it with a normal-sized UD (not a Twig) and have found that the UD is just a little too big to always avoid my eyeglasses bumping against it. I figure since the Nano has a smaller diameter it will be perfect.

    I’ve been comparing the vapor to my SSFG Travel Beaker and I can definitely taste the difference. The little rig vapor has more taste and is just a little more harsh… which I would think makes sense as it’s less diffused and has less room to chill. But even with my sensitive throat, I’m having no irritation in the mornings (as would sometimes happen with my Aqua Vape).

    The only changes I would make is a slightly longer mouthpiece, maybe a half-inch or 3/4 (who wouldn't like an extra half inch or so? :lol:) and eight diffusion slits instead of only 4, but for $110 bucks I'll take it...

    Also... tiny bit of advice: I have gotten best results by tipping the glass slightly to the right, and tilting my head slightly to the left (as though I'm going to kiss it :uhoh:). Also, be careful with it. Although a little heavier than it looks, it’s still very light. When putting my DBV tubing directly into the joint (no WPA) I found that the piece could have tipped over from the stress if I hadn’t held on to it. So be gentle!

    Just make sure to order it with a female joint if you’re only using it for vaping flowers. :tup:

    Now.... I just need that little 'Nano to make the relationship complete...:science:

    Nice buy EDA. I'm definitely going to pick one of these little guys up in a female 18mm. Hell for the price I might get a male too :p

    If you're able to upload pictures, definitely curious to see what it looks like with the female joint

    ... wow. Likes and interest from a bunch of glass experts... I'm honestly quite flattered. :)

    I will take a pic of it as soon as my old, old, old school camera is done charging. My phone camera simply refuses to take pictures and it's pissing me off.:goon:

    For now, I can just say that my piece looks EXACTLY like the left piece in the first picture... just with the female joint. If that's helpful at all...

    But... anyway. Glad you guys are interested. I just hope my glass immaturity isn't going to end up with you guys buying glass you don't like.

    I E-mailed them a couple times on weekdays before I ordered and I received very quick, thoughtful, personalized responses, even though that Vegas thing was happening at the time. I hope you receive the same! :)

    EDIT: Sorry for the double post!!!

    They answered me about an hour or so after my e-mail, telling that they received my email and will answer me soon (not a bot email :o) . Sometimes a feedback email like this make a whole difference, they didn't know the answer but let me know that they're taking care, that's what I call good customer service :tup:

    Sorry for the crappy quality here, dudes, but my camera won't get any closer and stay focused... and I'm sure that me being dedicatedly medicated right now has NOTHING to do with it... :smug:

    Anyway... hope these help. Rig w/ UD, MFLB, SSFG Travel Beaker, and beer bottle. Any more questions, just let me know!

    ... I'm thinking they should really put some pics of the piece with the female joint on their site, so people don't have to wonder...

    ... probably should have cleaned it first, but..... fuck it, dude; let's go bowling...

    I sent them an email yesterday asking about pricing. It doesn't look like they have a retail site, they got right back to me letting me know they could send me pricing. It looks like they mostly are selling to LHS since they offered me wholesale prices if I wanted to carry them in a shop. We'll see what their prices are, looks like it would make a great little hydra tube for a log vape.

    Sure, I can make a quick video later today once all the "chores" are done. It will be brief and very simple, though. Nothing fancy.

    Still loving the little piece. Been calling it "Little Bigfoot."

    ERRLD FLEX GLASS MINI RIG (review in an earlier post) WITH ASH UNDERDOG & WONG



    Now, I know what you're thinking:

    "Wow, this member has obviously been making these kinds of videos for YEARS! I mean, just look at the craftmanship. The smooth editing. The crisp sound. The deep focus. It's all there!

    That IS what you're thinking... RIGHT?! :goon:

    Well... maybe not so much. Yeah, I don't make these often... so that's about the best I have to offer at this point. I tried putting the camera farther away so you'd see what it's like when you're holding it, but... when I did, I saw my face, and I didn't like it so much. So... I chose this vid instead. You know how it is. :ninja:

    FYI... if it seems as though I'm hitting the piece awkwardly... it's because I am at that angle. Take the camera out of the equation and the process is a lot more natural, I assure you. Watch really closely and you'll be rewarded by noticing my WonG silicone has gotten a little loose due to my meddling. That's why I shake it - so it doesn't come off with the Dog.

    Any suggestions for future videos would be greatly appreciated... begrudgingly. :lol:

    As you can see, the "little bigfoot" hits just fine... especially paired with my little (W)underdog. :tup:

    For those of you playing the trivia version, the song is called "Veneno" by Chuy Flores, and if it sounds familiar it's because you heard it on Breaking Bad. But the album cover used as the background is "Dark Night of The Soul" by Sparklehorse and Danger Mouse with David Lynch (and many others). :clap:

    Nice hits man. That UD seems to put out pretty dense vapor, that's good.

    Have you tried the DBV with that little rig? I'm considering a DBV.

    I have tried it with my DBV and it works just fine!

    Just be careful if you decide on it because the tubing of the DBV has enough force to pull the pipe over, so you have to hold on to the pipe once you've "got your tubing in," so to speak. I'm guessing it would be the same even with a legitimate WPA.

    So I insert the tubing, hang on the pipe, then insert the wand. Then you have to put the wand down while hanging on to the pipe, and then take the tubing out. It's kind of tedious, so I prefer to use my SSFG Travel Beaker with my DBV.

    Been really enjoying this bubbler I bought.

    I wouldn't call this a "high quality" piece but rather... "mid-tier". The one thing I love about this, is the glass is shaped so you can grasp it firmly.

    Was about 150USD express shipped from Canada to US.

    That piece has a lot of pieces!

    What is it and where did you get it?

    I like the grip. It's a nice feature.

    The bad thing about that one though is that it has a non-changeable combustion bowl on the bubbler. The one I have is standard ground joints.
