    I've been looking for a bub (5" to 10"max) that produces more of a FIZZZZZ of tiny bubbles to use with dabs and vaping, but haven't come across anything in my searches.

    Doesn't anyone have any suggestions on whats out there ? (pls, no boro market stuff as I refuse to buy into that realm).

    TIA

    If 'fizz' is the most important attribute for you, I'd say you can do no better than Dave Goldstein.



    The mini is probably closer to 12" though.

    Thanks guys..... yes, I've seen both & they look great BUT... my want is a max 10" & pref shorter (small).

    I realize I 'may' need to request a 'custom', however I thought I'd ask the membership if they've come across anything aside of whats already posted here in an effort to not 'break the bank' with a custom piece.

    The Freshbaked Fizzer, but I don't know if that's really what you are looking for, since despite it's name it doesn't 'fizz' in the way you described:

    I just watched the vids in use of that named 'fizzer' kingofnull, and personally I don't consider it fizzing at all IMO. Sure seems more like bubbler to me :shrug:

    Aye, that's why I said it wasn't really what you were looking for. TBH, I didn't know exactly what you were looking for, but it seems we can rule out the Freshbaked Fizzer at least :)

    The newer versions of the DG Minican seem to be smaller for the most part than they used to be. I got mine about 6 months ago, and it was 12" tall like the one in the video. My buddy got one a few months ago, and it was a bit smaller and a few inches shorter with a much more bent mouthpiece. Looks like ALT has the newer versions, they say its only 9" tall.

    DG has a nice piece no doubt... and the fritted disc is intriguing. Hate the logo though, lol....

    Tried to find a vid of action with the minican 9", but no luck :(

    Thanks sticky... all though I'm not keen on an AC type, the design may produce what I'm looking for.

    Look forward to your review and vid ;)

    Smokum, you Don't like the Rooster?!? Haha, I've had friends say the same thing when they see me looking at DG pieces, I personally like The Rooster for some reason... I think for the fizz like action you're def going to need some kind of honeycomb/disc/lattice type perc. Have you checked out the leviathan lattice bubbler? Not sure on its dimensions for you... Also you mentioned NOT wanting to go custom route, but I suggest going to your LHS and talking with them to see about a Local blower perhaps that could do something for you at a price you both could reasonably agree upon. That is what I did for my custom piece and I spent a fraction of what Most would. Plus I am Big on purchasing Local if possible & try and preach that to as many people as possible :)

    I like my scientific bubs with a small signature/emblem personally... personal thing I guess as I was never attracted to heady type pieces nor bling/'look at me' stuff in general.

    Man, I wish I was in your situation.. but being a) in Canaduhh, and b) my LHS's suck with chinese/india stuff, there are ZERO choices for custom work and 'any' local wanna be artists are basic bong builders usually with pyrex.

    I'm just starting to 'seriously' getting into the search with intent to purchase as finances are now allowing me to do so.... so let the search begin ;)

    I got a DG tube and lev's lattice while they are both great pieces of glass the DG is definitely fizzy particularly when the water is low or at the Fritted disk. The lattice changes a lot with its water level but even real low at the lattice it more purrs I guess IME. They are both great but the DG disk has more fizz then any other piece I have used.
