Incredible the craftsmanship is just fucking incredible
Isn't that a Faberge Egg Recycler in the beggining....
i have been looking for a shop with these around Seattle for a while now..
all i know is that when i finally see one, it will be mine.
Any thoughts to those who have had the pleasure of hitting both, which do you prefer? Recycler vs. Fab Egg?
Joey, Piece of mind Udub had the Recycler and Egg in stock last time I was there. Not sure if Fremont carries them as well, but I believe they do.
Thank you Hoops! I appreciate that! When was the last time you were up there by chance? I will definitely call them to see if they still have some in stock. I am preferably looking for a large (11-12inch) one. Still no debate between the recycler vs fab egg opinions? Haha. iI is pretty hard to choose one or the other without hitting them. Can't wait to ear some input!
I've only dry hit them, so I'm not able to provide any type of real feedback. Both are engineering marvels.
I was in the Udub store about four weeks ago. Check their facebook page Piece of Mind Udub and give them a call. I'd also call Fremont and lastly....Lake City...in that order.
My vote is for the Torus.. Here is a video I did a little while hile back:
Filled a little higher than it probably should be...
very nice! i just cant get over the gorgeousness. how tall is your torus toros23?
The envy runs deep right now.. bravo!
Mine is the shorter one with 60mm can, it is 10 inches to top of the MP. They are pretty cool, just wish they were a little shorter.
Okay, thank you very much, I have been confused about the size of these, every place i call about them only differentiates 60 and 75mm sizes, but I know thats only about 3 inches. So the MM defines the width of the cylinder portion? and you really would rather a smaller one? i would think the bigger the better on these? perhaps not?
edit: do you like having the 60mm can as apposed to the 75mm if you had the option? sorry for the onslaught of questions, just highly considering investing in one.
60mm is in reference to the diameter of the main tube. I like smaller pieces so I can store them easily/properly. It is all personal preference, you can control the drag by the amount of water. Video doesn't really do it justice, there is plenty of action in the smaller one, that is for sure..
I gotcha. I was going into this with if I am goin to get one, and invest that much $$ I might as well go big or go home! Haha. So I was wanting the biggest I could find it. Maybe a little foolish.. I think it would be worth it. with a bigger main tube, does that mean bigger tornado? Is the glass sturdy or is it on the fragile side?
Really nice selection of Mothership at Liquid Chrome. About an hour north of Toronto.
The mini vapor bub they are putting out with a "MOTHERSHIP" perc fires really nicely and looks clean as hell. And 700 is a good price.
They are actually $599 in the pics.. High Priority Glass put up a bunch of Mothership Glass pieces today and they are selling the same vapor bubblers for $900. HPG is also selling the honey pots by themselves, thought that was pretty cool. The worked ones on HPG sold pretty quick tonight for $700!! I see there are a few quartz honey pots in one of vtac's pics, always wanted to try those.
It's posted as 900 with the Ti slide on HPG... But yesterday in Piece of Mind I saw the exact same piece with a Ti slide for $700. Hmm..
I was just looking at vtac's pics with the vapor bubblers but they all have quartz honey pots in his pics. Don't they?
Yeah those are quartz. HPG doesn't have any of the mini vapor bubs with a quartz honey pot, but they do have this...
Still, sexy as hell!
OK my Mothership Torus recycler:
My other two:
Wow, glad I got my Mothership glass awhile ago. Kulture just listed some - the small dabber is $900 and the Torus is $1900 wo, that's $300 more each and much more than they had listed w/o stock of course...
Love that mini. I need me a Fab Egg in my life. =(
after months of trying to get into the fb group i've finally managed to acquire a fabrege egg!
its mouthpiece was replaced which is but i'm just happy to finally see an egg in person so dont really mind. might try and contact mothership to see if they would put on a legit neck but i'm in no rush.
gut reaction when i took it out: WOW THAT'S SMALL. it's about 8" (9" w/ original neck) but for some reason i figured it'd be way wider. honestly i'm more of a fan of big pieces (usually smoother) so might try and trade this in the future. really lovin it though haha i've been wanting to try this out for a loooooooooooooooooong time
