    Ho guys. It always seems like whenever i decide on a new piece i cannot find it. The 2 main online resources I use are aqualabs and kulture. Are there any other online shops that you all recommend that sell higher end glass. Ive got two ash catchers in mind, the dirty rico appocoline and the seed of life ashcatcher. I want to pair it with my stereo matrix. Most buddies dont get the vaping and prefer to combust. Im fine with it but will not let them smoke in my mobius without an ashcatcher.

    Also, does anyone have the stereo matrix and pair it with the dirty rico. I am curious if there are any issues with it being such a tall ash catcher...

    just picked up a gordo 14mm riptide from headdyglass.bigcartel.com/‎

    they don't have exactly the ashcatchers your looking for but they have some nice stuff at reasonable prices.
    super fast shipping and with a sale and discount online coupon my piece was real cheap.

    hope that helps.

    as far as a visual, its super cool!!! def spins like crazy although not as much as the online vid of the riptide that's floating around. mines a 14m input and it def smaller then the other one, 18m. I'm on a t-break right now and this is my reward once I'm done so I haven't actually used it with the good stuff yet... just air and water.

    But it looks awesome and seems like it's going to be the perfect size for my use when the time rolls around.
    As far as quality, gordo really makes some nice pieces! Nice work!!!

    I have one as well!! I keep water a couple mm over riptide perc. And once I played with my draw technique, can make tornados all day long. In the video, for whatever reason I thought I needed a slow draw like I do with my Mobius. :nope: Purse your lips on the little "nipple" on the mouthpiece and pull hard like trying to clear a clog, a strong pull, not weak or slow. It'll take a couple tries, but don't give up it will do it as good as the video.
    When I 1st got mine and tried it out I was so upset that it didn't "work" like the video. By work I mean the vortex look. The piece ripped like all hell, smooth, great flavor, lots of action with just little water. BUT, it didn't vortex. Which I realized later was just my draw technique. You also have to keep the draw speed even, little less draw speed kills vortex, little more draw speed will to. Once you get it, it's easy to replicate on every demand after that.

    Good luck and congrats on the quality pickup!:peace:
