The HVY has a few minor cosmetic flaws, but the GonG and the bulge are actually the nicer ones I've seen, from both HVY and MiO. I've always found that bulge to be lopsided on most pieces. However, both downstems in the HVY and my MiO sit straight. The bulge on the MiO is lopsided. This place caries and pushes a lot of MiO. I was looking over some of the pieces and I'm not too impressed with the lack of QC. One of the nice things about MiOs are the punched DS. However, they range from too tiny holes, to way too big. The one I got, was punched beatifully, but... like the HVY, cracked. What... everything this dude touches... the DS are crap? Also, the stamp on both is getting sloppy. The MiO's especially. They had at least 3 pieces, that were stamped upside down and 2/3 the M was missing. Sloppy. I think the guy was a bit butthurt, cause he hates HVY and always pushes the MiO. If everything he had, wasn't over $100... I might have. Do I enjoy it? Heck yeah I did. I have odd tastes. I'm not a big fan of little bubblers. Sure, the Infamous is... well, infamous. I like my mini hydrator, WITH the SSFG AC on it. I love my larger bubblers. But, my SSFG travel beaker with just the showerhead, is a constant use piece. Gets as much use as my Lev FC bubbler, easy. I love hitting it. I only got to spend a session and half with the HVY tube... didn't like it much with the SSFG and was kind of pissed (it really needs at least a 12" 40-50mm tube). But, when I yanked it off and started using... it was pulling these huge, flavorful clouds off the HI. Easy, kickback hits. Its @#$%ing stout to. Feels way tougher than the SSFG (but that's 5mm vs 4mm). Will most definitely be a travel piece, instead of the SSFG. I'm really looking forward to what Mike sent. I'm hoping this tube stacks like mad, just so I can say... it does. lol. If it doesn't become a part of the regular rotation with the travel beaker... I will be shocked. I was rotating 3 pieces for a while... but just got bored. Throwing the SSFG in there, helped that boredom out a lot, its a real distinctive hitter. Of course, when I get the Big Mona next week, this may all become moot.
