How do the fancier percs compare to the more traditional ones?

    I'm familiar with showerhead and tree percs, but at some point I want to get a nicer perc.

    I'm interested in the M&M Tech crystal ice perc and the Mobius Stereo perc specifically. How do these percs vary from more standard showerhead/ circ percs and tree percs?

    I'm not sure there's a simple answer for that. I was using a double honeycomb ashcatcher with my dbv, but recently switched to an simple four-hole diffused bubbler. The little guy kicked butt on the honeycomb. This has led me to believe that diffusion in vaporization is *cough* overrated. Mostly I'm interested in diffusion that allows for a steady draw and nice clouds.

    In my experience a "nicer" perc isn't really a substantial upgrade from a showerhead/circ in terms of smoothness. They may look a lot cooler/have less drag, but realistically they won't make vapor much smoother.

    They operate differently but have the same function of pushing vapor through water. The "fancy" percs like fritted glass strip a bit more flavor.

    It really just depends. I like looking more at how it affects drag. Really chuggy pieces I don't like.
