    If you get the 18mm gong adapter you're all set. If you get the 14mm gong adapter you'll need an 18-14 reducer.

    Thank you SSVUN-YAH...I will go order now. I think these measurements will become clearer to me when I see them in person. I hope so. :)

    Yup, basically once you see them it's "ahh, so there's a fat one and a skinny one" that's about it :)

    I think of 14mm as "pinky sized hole" and 18mm as "thumb sized hole".

    Also since it's the Glass 101 thread I'll just state the obvious, 18mm female and 14mm male are both easily turned into 14mm female and 18mm male respectively using just a low-pro 18-14 reducer.

    7th Floor sent me some glass diffuser beads. Is this something I should be trying in a FC-187 or D series?
    Do people like these? I don't see much mention of their use.

    For vaping they are garbage.

    Can't see why 7th floor sells them

    Exactly, they're really garbage in general.. never understood why they even got remotely popular.

    I've ordered my glass pieces from SunshineStore at dhgate.

    Are there any other solid sellers I should check out on Dhgate?

    Thanks!!

    Here is a whole thread about this topic.

    First look for StevenLMZ79 at dhgate. But there are some more. Anyone has linked here to a thread on Reddit where is a sample of recommended chinese glass dealers

    I don't like glass bongs. I am always scared that someone will drop it.

    Yeah glass breaks..fairly often I find lol

    There’s a little bit of a workaround..
    get glass from dhgate.com so you can replace it cheaply each time
    ..you can get good bong for $20-30 (..or even less) then it’s not so painful to fix a break

    You could maybe look at this thread ..to find a good piece
