    Turbines arent new but ive never seen one implemented like that. Closest would be Gordo Scientific's RipTide perc. If that animated gif is real, it looks pretty cool. You can see a good shot of the perc (not really a perc but channels? ) from under and above on the website you linked. Interesting hollow foot design too.

    I would think it's all show and really so-so function, with so much water you can see at the end it's like bubbles in a fishtank... but yeah sick vortex in the start

    This is apparently something called an Eagle Eye Turbine? Here's a much better video:

    I saw that gif on reddit a while ago, I would imagine the drag on that thing would be intense! I find that even my stemless M&M has a decent amount of drag for vaping but pulling all that water ~4 inches through a tiny perc before getting any draw would not be fun IMHO

    In the video I posted, the pipe neck is rather narrow and the overall piece isn't that big. I'd imagine the pull to not be too much worse than your average recycler.

    That looks similar, but a web search for Eagle Eye Turbine doesn't pull much up.

    Hey guys well I think I have found the culprit!!

    I have also wrote this into the Cheap Bubbler thread as well since we have been looking at Aaryyan creations there so not sure what would be best in terms of replies and so on...

    Anyway there it goes:

    I wrote to Aaryan Creations to ask various questions, I have not had a reply yet but what I did get is even more interesting! :

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Greeting of the day…

    Please take a look it’s a cyclone tornedo water Pipe..

    Please look the video too hope you like the Pcs and want to order the same.

    Price - $ 30 / Each

    MOQ- Only 10 PCS in same design with Blue or Green Disc

    Detail - 12 Inches, 3.5mm Glass Borosilicate Tube, OD-42/50mm bent shape.

    Doesn't it look amazing!?

    So I thought how about any of you guys be interested in going into a group buy as only 10 needs to be bought (europe folks that is cos' shipping cost) ???

    Anyway I thought I'd wrote to Mike @ Theshunshinstore to see what he thought of the design, and this was in answer:

    i already have this , pls check the attachment

    I've checked his store but it does not appear anywhere yet, so I've wrote to him (5 mins ago) and waiting for answer which I will pass on as soon as I receive it.

    The two are slightly different though the blue cyclone has 5 slits and the green one 4 and seems a tad thinner/smaller of a perc.

    I'm not sold on this one yet. It looks great without restriction but we haven't seen any vapes on top yet. I have no doubt it will clear in a cool fashion, however I am skeptical how it will function with different vapes. I'm not a fan of filling a chamber then taking another breath to clear, I prefer it all at once. I will be anxiously awaiting this one!:popcorn:

    I emailed smoke cartel and they said I was the second person to ask about aaryan creations as their supplier, they told me they asked them for a quote on restocking their units, but went with a different manufacturer. Now aaryan creations is "stealing" their design after them just asking for a quote, so idk. I'm just gonna wait for them to restock.

    Id try to find a different vendor of this Chinese glass. Perhaps get your own group buy going. Only need 10 people.

    Cliffs Notes: Smokecartel is carteling smoke up your ass with their email response.

    I see your point. But it makes me wonder which other manufacturer they found. Maybe it's cheaper elsewhere?

    They are buying direct from China undoubtedly. Im sure theres a little bit if truth wrapped in a whole lot of BS in the reply they gave you.

    Oh yeah, some of their glass I'm sure they are. Some of their stuff is definitely from US glassblowers though. Can't blame them for making a profit. Doubt they'll give up their supplier for the tornados though.

    yes mostly all disc are pre fab

    i have cases of both honeys and turbines

    the tube mentioned in the OP won't perform very well but it does look cool as hell and since its coming straight from china should be a super deal @ $20 or so...

    The turbines original purpose was a splashguard so the tube would be made shorter and more compact

    i dont really see a point in making it the star of any piece - u need another filter behind it
