    Seriously though after seeing this bubb I'm having trouble liking any other glass I see

    Yeah it hits a lot of the things I'm looking for and still looks elegant:

    18mm Deweer, Big showerhead that fits most the chamber w/a bunch of slits (flame polished even), Big Solid round base for stability, removable mouthpiece for easier storage/cleaning, and a chamber that I'm hoping is just the right size for vapor(aprox 7" tall with a 65mm bore).

    Funny, I had just ordered that free downstem from them, and it arrived the day Placetime posted this new bub.

    I still can't get over it's curves. Looks so sexy, :smug:.

    Right on Tweak. For me it's all about the ritual so everything has to be zen. That's why I love the gn0me vaporizer. The two together would be insane!

    Mynameismud But call me Alowishus Devadander Abercrombie.

    Hey I was thinking about getting this but I have a couple questions if anyone can answer...

    1) I do not see a 100$ version anywhere, did it sell out or is itnnot available anymore?

    2) when i go to checkout, it says you the one pictured (with fuck combustion label) is just a picture and if you want it to say something its an extra 40$, so I guess you have to add this option for it to say "Fuck Combustion"? Which is basicaaly the price of the discount

    Sam explained the $100 version here:


    Also, he told me that the discount code won't work on the website, but that he would invoice the discounted amount.

    I really like the way this bubbler looks but don't know if I want to pay $140 for my very first piece of glass.

    Placetime are there any pics of the straight bottom, no bubble, $100 version? Seeing how the showerhead looks in the straight bottom with no fc logo would definitely be nice and help me decide between the 2. :)

    This is really tempting. Add a 45 M adaptor, HT, and a cloud... ;)
    Happy vapin' folks!

    So the answer was still no...

    I really don't get this...I know a few years ago there would be extra work involved for the seller, but nowadays a firm like UPS for instance will take care of all the extra custom papers involved...And I was asking to send it to Holland, so I know there are no laws against importing glass...

    Those that can get it, have fun with it, it really looks like a nice piece...

    I haven't seen any pics of the $100 version--don't know if Sam has any yet. But, mscm888 ordered one on Sat (see page 2 of this thread), so maybe we'll get to see some pics from mscm888 soon. :)

    Sam emailed this morning to let me know it should ship by the end of the week.

    He even threw in a free downstem when I asked about their promotion on the website.

    I will most certainly take pictures when it arrives. Then I will finally learn how to post pictures on the internet. :)

    Thanks placetime and thanks to you too mscm. I look forward to the pictures of your new bubbler. What vape are you going to use it with?

    Anyone else order one?

    I'm getting charged sales tax and I live in another state, just wondering if that is just a California thing. :huh:

    I haven't ordered one. I'd like to... but I don't think its a must. While an awesome looking piece, I'm wondering about functionality. That's an awful big showerhead (cuts), for that size piece.

    Plus, I already have a showerhead piece. Think I'm going with a stemline or matrix perc next.

    Though, things change.

    I ordered one. I'm in California so I expected to pay sales tax. If you don't live in California, I'd email Sam so that he can charge the correct amount.

    I'll mostly be using it with my Cloud.

    I picked the low-pro downstem so I could also use it with my VB whip and MFLB WPA.

    What is the difference in the low pro verses the other standard female joint? I know one is 14mm and the other is 18mm, but other than that, IDK.

    That's the only difference that I can tell. Seems good to have options, no?

    I did. He says the Cally requires him to collect sales tax even from online sales. :ugh:

    Oh well, I'll pay the tax, I think the bubbler is worth it, :).

    The low-pro fits 18mm and reduces it to 14mm. It's also shorter in overall length, almost flush with the bongs GonG joint where the standard sticks out some. A 18-14mm reducer is basically a low-pro joint w/o the stem.

    So, am I wrong? or ,can you add a downstem inside the already fixed showerhead downstem??
    If that's possible, it will be awesome with the holed diffused reverse one :clap:

    I have a question... In the photos looks like the mouthpiece GonG at he top side of the can is really soft rounded, isn't it???
    Will it hold a keck clip in place??? I don't see a picture with the K-clip on... Is it supposed to be a free motion mouthpiece???

    Tell me about it!

    Since I started reading this forum ~2 years ago I've bought 4 vapes, glass, grinder, accessories etc. That's not even bad compared to a lotta vape-heads on FC. In the end all hobbies cost money, some more than others. If your hobbies make you happy it's worth it. :2c:

    I haven't spent a damn dime, since I got here!

    EDIT: Wait, there were a few pieces of glass here and there and a vape.

    EDIT II: All my purchases, have been done, in the interest of science...

    I asked Sam about the mouthpiece needing a plastic clip and he told me it won't be necessary.
