    Absolutely. A phenomenal price. Really looking forward to receiving mine as well. Any word on turnaround time?

    I ordered a small bent neck stem and got it about a week later, so I imagine about a week or so for them to make the piece and have it ready to ship is my guess, much more work involved than just a bent neck stem.

    You *can* set up a forwarding address. It's not obligatory that he go out of his way to be able to sell them to everyone (and these aren't legal everywhere)

    Me too. Pricing is rather confusing still, and awaiting something telling me how to pay, but it looks really, really nice. Not sure if any other stems will fit it though.. but it looks great and seems to be the deal of the day for sure. My first real glassware was like 220 bux and I had looked through seemingly a million messages around figuring out I liked bubblers over bongs, and i am so glad I didn't go cheaper but got quality (Flawless bubbler quality). Now I will have 2 nice glass pieces, in my mind justifying messing around with the lower cost/quality stuff for kicks. I think the first expensivre glassware purchase is the head of the camel, though . . . But then again, Iolite (x3); Solo (x2); Pax; 2 boxes; MFLB; EasyVaape (???) [pos imho for leaf]; Arizer Q. So i guess I can't throw stones at those who throw bux at glasswares and I might as well jump in!

    Correct. His site FAQ page says "continental US only". No one should expect him to change his shipping policy for a piece he's selling at a discounted price.
    The coupon code 'fuck it' is what you enter in that field if you want the logo and the $140 price. If you want the $120 version, you use 'no logo' for the code. Once you confirm the order they'll email you an invoice.

    I just got an email from Sam. He let me know he was super busy making product and mine will ship early next week.

    I'm really excited and can't wait to see it. :)

    Convinced a friend to take up the offer of the free downstem. He got it engraved with one of the bongs name "Professor Milky". We are satisfied with the downstem, great deal :D

    I too picked up a couple of 4.5" stems and a lil ashcatcher. One was free. The 14-18 reduced ones are really large diameter tubing and flow easily. Great find!

    I spoke with Sam on the phone about his policy and as manufacturers we have to make business decisions that are smart for a business. Shipping out of country there are complications like customs, expensive shipping, legal issues, glass breaking possibilities, etc.

    I did get a hilarious image in my head of Sam in some captain America get up complete with cape attempting to suck his own anus lol. It made me smile.

    Thanks Mr.Norml and Jam for the feedback and advice. Since I made the post that you both responded to, I have been doing some comparison glass shopping, both from my own searches and from looking at the "cheap high quality bubbler" thread. Based on what I have seen so far, I have to agree that the Glassblowersdirect bubbler appears to be a fantastic deal. The bub is definitely sick looking and different from the norm, which appeals to me alot and the price seems more than reasonable, especially with the sandblasted fc logo. I feel like I'm sold on it, but since I've never owned a bubbler or a bong, I think that as soon as I see someone post their pics/video and give it a thumbs up, I'll be placing my order.:tup:

    Do we have a definite cut off time for the FC discount?? It would be a shame for folks to miss out on this amazing deal because they were waiting for pictures etc... to show up first.

    According to an earlier post, Sam said the special pricing is done the end of October.

    Probably going to miss out on any of the other bubblers. If I can grab another, it will be this probably. Though, I feel kind of put-off by the shipping policy. Know it doesn't effect me... just sucks, excluding.

    You stated your opinion on his shipping policy back on page 2. He has his reasons and obviously isn't going to change his mind.

    Continuing to complain about the policy is just :horse:and serves no purpose other than denigrating someone who's offering members a nice piece at a good price. Let's move on and stick to the thread topic.

    I clearly stated I was going to most likely purchase the piece regardless, if given the opportunity. I'm entitled to express my opinion more than once. I was also responding to a question.

    Peace.

    You're entitled to post as long as you follow the rules, and as stated on the rules page, they're "interpreted and applied at staff discretion". So let's make things really clear. There will be no more complaints about this vendor's shipping policy. They'll be treated as off topic or as attacking a company. Enough is enough.

    For anyone interested in the free downstem, this is what Sam sent me for only $7.99 (S+H).

    Not what I expected considering what they have shown on there website but I'm happy. I ordered the standard 18mm, so I no longer have to switch between 14mm and 18mm WPA when switching between water pipes. :)

    it would be a better downstem if the center was intact making 5 holes. with it cut all the way thru its just one fat hole.

    I couldn't tell if them are slits or just some sandblasted design.
