    I need the option of upright use so I can use concentrates. Thanks!

    I have heard that the bomb replica is awesome, but I like the look of the first piece, but I want performance, not looks, and I know you're a civilized, experience glass user, and trust your opinion.

    I use the first one as well.
    However if I was on a budget I gave my response.

    Hi guys - just got my FC-188 (no logo) matrix with 14 mm joint from Stevenlmz79.

    [link removed]

    The base is VERY wide and flat/stable. No obvious bubbles. No leaks. Functions great.

    This is, to me, a great piece to use with the GH, the Enano Gong, the Vapcap...basically herb vapes. I don't see this as an oil rig as I have some other pieces better suited. But for water treating herb vapor, I think this is a winning piece.

    Cheers

    I'm about to order this, some zdglass (he looks to have a lace sphere perc? Wtf? Anyone seen China do thus before? Seed of life is my next high end rig to test), Hfy glass clutch, and yingmin 60t clone + matrix vapexhale tube.

    Also going to write an article on customer service with all the vendors I've dealt with and interacted with since I've ordered or talked to a bunch at this point.

    I ordered my bomb clone yesterday with the tree perc base. For an extra $12 I couldn't pass it up. It'll be the first package mailed directly to our new house!:rockon::rockon: We'll see how long yingmin takes to get the the Chicago area :razz:

    I recently noticed a wanted ad for a 9mm+ thick glass piece in the classifieds and it made me think of all the cool 7mm+ pieces i've seen at my local head shops. THICK GLASS indeed! Love the thickness, the size and feel of the heavier weight, and much harder to break (except for @ataxian ofcourse)...

    Is there such thing as cheap china glass that is thicker and beefier than the present (5mm?) that is so abundant on dhgate? Haven't really searched, just curious if anything stands out...i'd be willing to pay a premium for it obviously...maybe 25% or so.

    I think I saw some bongs that were thicker than that, like 9 mm. So I just went back to the page I have kept open on the site since many weeks ago (page 32 of that search, fuck starting again so I just never closed the tab), and within one page I found this:
    https://m.dhgate.com/product/12-inc...lass/393167178.html#s33-19-1;searl|3692527053

    9 mm bong. So it didnt seem to hard to find a thick glass bong.
    Personally, I think you should kit out your vape room like a padded cell, maybe serve 2 necessary purposes at the same time! ;)

    But seriously nice find man, that actually looks like a decent piece! Looks like there are many "bong" style... I guess bubbler style is more difficult to blow to 9mm.

    It's not just for breakage I just like the look and feel of the quality thick glass...the hefty weight rocks.

    I just try to vape mostly in my bed on my memory foam bed. Where it's nice and safe. Pieces can sit up and if they fall it's a nice foamy landing. My carpet is pretty well padded too, but if I were to do it myself I'd double up

    I wanted to reply to these posts since this came up while doing additional research on Simple Green on Page 2 of my results.

    I currently don't recommend Simple Green on the basis that it just hasn't really removed resin the way ISO has. Despite multiple cleanings at full strength. Without the abrasive power of SALT it's just not as good as iso/salt in my testing.

    Edit:When I used simple green with salt the salt disintegrated (I'm sure someone is saying "DUH!!!!" right now) If there is an abrasive that's safe for glass that you can use with simple green I would definitely give it another shot.

    I haven't noticed any film or shit after usage, but considering 99% ISO + SALT is more convenient for most people to get anyway (You go to convenience stores and grocery stores at some point), I don't see any reason to use Simple Green at this time.

    Iso + Salt > Simple Green in my testing.

    Simple green works.
    I use a cacade pellet for most of my water pipes, hydrotube and bubbler.

    PBW I used and ACOLONOX (mis-spelleded) they worked great however CASCADE is not bad at all?

    Some hate my strains however they work?

    If $ is tight = SPRAY SIMPLE GREEN and a teaspoon of CASCADE and fill with RO water.

    I wash all my glass often.

    PERPECTIVE

    Maybe because you wash your glass often?

    All of my stuff in my testing was quite dirty. I'm not saying Simple Green didn't clean it. It just didn't remove the hard water stains or the resin build up.

    I'll try the cascade with the simple green+water though and see if that helps. I'm open to trying to get it to work but so far it seems that without an abrasive (like the cascade) it wouldn't work well. I have a lot of cascade so I'll add that to my current mixture and see if it gets the resin build up around the downstem and other areas.

    I'll always just stick to 99% ISO....does the trick every time, and for anything difficult, just add some coarse salt. Lots of hot water rinsing, and i'm confident it's safe. With SG or other chemical detergents, I just don't trust that all residue and film have been removed.

    @ataxian Did you buy the SOLO2 on 4/20 with the insane sales?

    I need 1 vaporizer, and 1 back up vaporizer.

    See you have backups. I still need an SSV though at lesat. That's why I'm not buying a third Minivap.

    I have, but I don't do silicone...remember I don't touch silicone tubing? And I like big flared mouthpieces as uncivilized as you think they might be!

    I'm sober beyond belief!!! I feel more CIVILIZED than ever! :tup:

    Sometimes I have to carpet bomb!

    CASCADE + SIMPLE GREEN + BAKING SODA +
    VINEGAR + Water 80f = SHAKE and let sit.

    See what work's for you?

    What I do works for me!

    Normally:

    SIMPLY GREEN SPRAY + CASCADE PELLETT + H2O = 15min or longer?

    I rinse with RO water and Citrus juice.
    We have limes and my neighbor has lemons.

    Keep your glass clean!
    The experience is worth it!

    R U EXPERIENCED?

    Ya I hadn't tried the cascade yet. Once I try your methods I'll report back.

    Didn't realize you added baking soda and vinegar to the mix too I'll have to pick up. Some baking soda.

    Cleaning us important so gotta do my research into finding an easy way to clean. Pbw is great but may not be for everyone
