    Sick piece. those mobius bubblers are some of my favorites, I just love that recessed bowl. what'd you end up dropping on that, if you don't mind saying? I've been meaning to check out illuzions, but it's hard to justify a drive from boulder just to window shop. I heard it's one of the better shops in denver though

    Got it down to 269 without the bowl. didnt have any need for that. yeah i drove from the springs to check out their shop and visit and friend and they have amazing glass. Lots of unique pieces like i dont see many places around here. It has that wow factor right when you walk in the door. My friend turns to me and says "this place is fuckin amazing", as i was just about to say the same to him...looks like mostly high end glass but i didnt look at everything as i had my mind set on a mobius

    Nice pickup. I have almost picked up that same piece several times. I love the look and the functionality of those mobius bubbs. I do own MGW and Zob bubbs, but they are both have tree's, still like them though.

    Illuzion glass is the shit. They have everything from 5$ to 30,000$ pieces. Something for everyone. They sold me my 2012bc netline to tophat, which I fucking love.

    I probably go in there once a week or so just to see the new stuff. They told me a couple weeks ago that they are starting to blow their own glass, Ill glass. They have either come out or are coming out with a new perc design called, "The Flux Capacitor Perc", so that should be cool. Also last time I was in there they had 3 Steve Bate's tubes with worm percs for about 1600$ before any discount, those were fucking sick.

    They also have a really good price on their butane, as I guess they sell a lot of it.

    Once again, nice pickup and enjoy.

    Hiya, I'm just curious as to why the ion was chosen over the clear, (a little larger) about an additional $50. Do you feel that the smaller volume on the ion is better for vaping? I've been looking at both. I'll make a decision soon. :/ Thx for any input.

    I choose the smaller one because of volume, quick to fill and clear. Gives me perfect hits. Also the price was a factor, I did want to save cash. Also the ion has a nice base where the other is like sitting on its tube.

    Pull the trigger, they are amazing pieces.

    I'm thinking that the primer hits required by the VHW should be taken into consideration when making a choice as far as volume is concerned. I'm not sure. This may just come down to a matter of preference?

    I'm a glass newb, and I just purchased what I would call my first higher-end piece: the Headford blasted inline Triple Doughnut bubbler. I needed something smaller for stealth reasons, and after seeing/handling one in my local HS, I was all over it. I went through ALT to take advantage of their 4/20 sale, so I got a nice deal. Until now, I've had medium-grade glass bongs.

    Can't wait!!

    Saw that one last night, JRR!! The one dude had a surprise party to go to, and I'm sure he was good to go!! Though I'll use mine for vaping flower, which those dudes aren't keen on.

    Got it!

    And it's very nice. It took me a load to get used to it, but by my second (late-night) load I figured out my preferred water level and holding method. Luckily I had previously purchased a 14mm AND an 18mm glass whip adapter, so I was ready to roll! Draw is SUPER nice. Kind of a bummer that I didn't think of how the blasted aspect would prevent me from seeing the vapor build up, but I know my viVape well enough that it's not a problem. My clouds were thick and tasty. This thing is small, smooth, and very solid. Great for me since I need the stealth. Also, it's badass that I can lay it down with water inside. Bad. Ass.

    I'm surprised, given what I've seen of other similar bubblers, that this one is priced at $175. It's built like $300 glass I've handled. Having been used to tubes, the mouthpiece is a welcome change. I really, really dig this thing. Especially coming from a glass tube (bong) with a 6-slit downstem--well-built, but not all that special. The 12-slit diffusion is a noticeable difference.

    Why, thanks bOObs! That's high praise coming from you. My vapinghole capacity is quite large. I'll get better at taking vids and post more once I don't need to be so discreet (i.e., guests leave). I'll post some with my other glass so you can see the whitewall. Not bad for low temps. And the flavor from vapor--damn!!

    Sick bubbler, I really like the look to the glass. Also it's my first time seeing the vivape.

    Thanks, VXLLengendary. It's the blasted Headford glass--they make a clear version too. It's a fantastic bubbler. I'll soon post more (and better) vids of the viVape on that thread, as I know it's still a bit of a mystery to forum members. But it's oh so nice.

    Sounds great, yeah the sand blasted look is really great on some pieces. I know we are both anxiously awaiting the Cloud, I was lucky that my friend got one early and have tried it out on several occasions :)
