yea, looks like the threads got merged. i swear i did a search before "starting" that thread. but i must say BDV was right. this thing is insane and definitely worth the price. it only has a slightly higher restriction than the matrix, i believe mostly due to the different width of mp stem. the aforementioned crook and the thinner stem on the DR, while preventing splashback to your mouth does SLIGHTLY hinder your draw. however i do believe that it does a better job of scrubbing w/ comparable flavor profiles. with all the bad pieces of mobius coming out of ALT right now, i hope this gives DR a window. these things look flawless.
