    I am really curious about this one, it would be great to see video of it in action. It does not list size on the website (that I could find anyway) but it looks really nice.

    I'm good at photography, not so good with videos. I can promise decent pictures once mine arrives.

    According to the email sent to Placetime, the can is 65mm X 5mm aprox 7" tall. Which I'm hoping is just the perfect size, not too big that it makes it hard to prime and clear, but big enough to get a mind numbing hit. The most curious thing for me is the placement of the mouthpiece, i'm hoping the can clears with ease since it will be pulled from the top rather than an inch down the can like most other bubblers.

    I know I absolutely do not need this piece, but I am on board anyway. I think it looks like a sexy, well made piece, and a steal at $100 ($120 if you want the curved bottom). Might be putting the BL Saxo up for sale if this one turns out to be a good replacement for the size I need at my desk.

    Just to be clear for prospective buyers, that $120 price doesn't include the fuckcombustion logo. You have to specify round bottom and no sandblasted logo.

    How do we get the discount? It is listed as 199 not 100. Very tempting with the discount

    From placetime's post on the first page:
    For the discount, type "fuck it" in the block for 'coupon code'. :lol: Additionally, I asked Sam about securing the showerhead to the base, since that's something people have discussed. He said he could do that for no extra charge. :) Sam also said that shipping will be about $14.

    Personally, I'm impressed; it's a very nice piece of glass, imho. :tup: What do y'all think?

    Correction from Stu, the coupon code does not work.

    And this offer only lasts until the end of October.

    I'm hoping it performs as nice as it looks. My broken black leaf saxo is very similar in size of can and the showerhead, but the saxo doesn't have half the amount of slits, isn't flame polished, and doesn't have that bubble shaped around the showerhead. And as I mentioned before, the placement of the mouthpiece is very unique, I hope it clears the chamber much faster.

    Correction, the code does indeed work. Just tried it, I get a subtotal of 139.95.

    I'm getting a total of $166 with the coupon code. Is the subtotal supposed to be $100 or $140? Good deal either way, but a really great deal at $100.

    Subtoal $139.95 + $13.95 shipping + $12.25 tax = $166.15

    The code is for the piece shown on the first page. If you want the same bubbler without the FC lettering and/or bubble bottom email/call them to get an invoice for that price. The $100 bubbler does not have the lettering or bubble bottom.

    Way to go Deadshort. I was all about tubes for many years. Then I got away, and now I like the smaller scientific bubblers.

    Please, whomever gets theirs first post up some pics and videos. I'm once again drooling, and my wife is looking at me funny.

    Check around but I think you will find more joy with a quality product and that at 140 this thing is a real deal. My experience with cheap glass is awful; my experience with good glass is good. You seemingly really get what you pay for. So, look at current prices and see if this isn't a deal. If it isn't, don't do it. If it is, pay the premium for a long life of use.

    I'll agree, I have been glass hunting for the last few months, and have cheap glass and expensive glass in my stash, and this FC bub is a real STEAL at the price, for thick 5mm glass, the shape and style is very elegant, and it's just a quality looking piece. Unless somebody is getting rid of a high end piece for a cheap price, you are going to be hard pressed to find a bubbler as nice as this for a price anywhere under $200. I ordered mine with the curve no lettering, and hoping it's as nice as the pic shows... I have faith! I will post pics and a video or two as soon as it's in my hands!

    BTW I am very excited to be getting this one!! Thanks to everyone who helped put this together and make it happen!!

    You could open that box from SSFG, that's been sitting there since last Friday.

    Mobius and the Saxo. I wouldn't expect a smoother hit off this piece. Big showerheads, have a bit of chug. Not a lot, if its set up right... but more than that little 10 arm tree and/or a Matrix.

    E mail from Sam about the $100 version.

    Hey, unfortunately the 100.00 version is no longer available. All pieces will be made with the curved bottom for 120.00(no logo). The coupon code is "no logo". Please forward this if you can and sorry I can't hook up that 100.00 price...

    Yay, the prettiest FC bubbler of the bunch & you won't sell it to me. I guess my wallet thanks you for no international shipping :(

    Still a FANTASTIC price, and that curve really makes the piece IMO. I am really looking forward to getting this.
