Just waiting for this little beaut by @MattDGlass on IG.
I like that little showerhead a lot!
No Idea, Stupidly it was all in my car, in 1 big vape case. I'm sure the people thought they were getting high end camera equipment or something, not $800 worth of vape shit! Oh well, you win some you lose some?
Speaking of winning some here are the winnings from the Christmas raffle I won.
An @Aglow Glass beautifully Fumed rig with 4 fumecellos! , A @Jackglassart chugger, a Scooby Doo Dab mat, a pendy, a dab tool, a couple of fresh quartz bangers, and a nice functional carb cap. and a cap, tool combo. Not a bad haul.
Below are the pieces that I just received this past week from Terry Sawyer of Phat Ass Glass. Terry is a complete pleasure to deal with, in my experience. The pieces are beautiful and function really wonderfully. They have nice wide bases for heavy bangers like the Liger and are made with good solid heavy glass.
The hover perc
The external recycler
That's a sweet color scheme on that hover perc Baron! I really dig it, neck/mouthpiece is neat too, the color of the neck with that maria reminds me of a piece of bamboo.
Anyone got vids of the floating percs? Trying to see the level of diffusion
@mrbonsai420 has a couple vids on his instagram feed
I've decided on my next piece, going to get a floating recycler made up by Trap Glass
Really like this guys work, and have always wanted a heady recycler
The hover Percs I ususally fill to the top of the perc but they could handle less or more. They have a very well balanced perc with 3 slotted rows producing some percolation but it retains most of the flavor.
I really like this, may be my next piece to replace my last poor dh gate decision (2way conversion illadelph). Just the right size and amount of bubbles for me!
Some really nice looking pieces on this page so far. That toffee apple hover perc looks awesome but that mint slice recycler is the shit @Baron23.
Trap glass looks like they make some pretty sweet pieces @MoltenTiger. I think I might hit up Tripa Glass & sound out how XX'y he will be for a self birthday gift.
I like what he does with colour, and he is apprentice to some awesome glass blowers. I'm also really happy with the two other pieces of his I have, so quite like the idea of adding one more to complete the set
Tripa has some cool stuff, there's a few gems getting made down here.
There's a couple of his pieces on OzBongs for 22% off. Plus you can use the code OZBEWGZ for 15% off (I think at anytime). So it works out fairly tempting!
So I recently found @h1tmannickglass on instagram and scooped a really sweet deal on a double intake recycler. https://instagram.com/p/BOiCa7gjA06/
The function video was on spot and I cannot wait for it to get here. The guy is a salesman of glass and so he is going to always have stuff for sale and can also hunt down stuff you might be looking for while working within a price range if needed.
I would def check out his stuff and hit him up if you are looking for something specific and see what he can possibly do =)
That is wildly hot looking double recycler! Very, VERY cool, mate.
Phattassglass just got back to me with completed pics of my custom! Can't wait to get this thing in hand!
@gladthaturaglide damn that's all kinds of sexy!! The drop down is just as amazing. Really nice score and I know you will love it
Well three make a perfect pair right ? I saw them on sale yesterday but I have rego due & a new piece arriving any day now so I have to show restraint but was going to crack most likely.
The biggie with me is I was told there was nothing that could be done with the pricing on my most recent purchase from them. I asked politely & am more than understanding of their supply costs, in addition I was taking dead stock off their hands so it made sense for both of us.
Strangely enough the code you gave me did apply a 15% discount to a duplicate order so as a consequence they have lost my business forever . I am fucking disgusted a business I have been patronizing since 2011 is like that.
Live & learn but to make matters worse it is 40% off a sweet Tripa piece as the discount compounds (if you want to get anything already on sale). Tempting as it is very cheap now but can I compromise my principals?
I was a little annoyed when I found the discount code, as I possibly could have used it on a couple of orders. And I have found them to be firm on prices before too. I don't know much about the code, it was posted on a facebook page for Aus glass, but it seems to have worked for the past week at least, and it's a decent amount off all items..
It must be a limited promo code I suppose.
The compounding discount is worth jumping on, but I think the asking price is still relatively too high for the available options. My pick is the blue recycler, the pieces also come with a pelican case so it's reasonable value, but just don't love the style enough
Oh, and three is already four with the SoL
From memory it is their standard discount code I had long forgotten about. I think I am moreso pissed off as I have been buying off them for years. I tend to use them because when i want something i want it yesterday. With a spot of luck I will get my US glass delivered tomorrow.
This may be the best one yet! I LOVE it. I also like the one my IG buddy got with the crushed opal over baby blue and 10mm opal coin! I'm glad we started this trend, These piece are getting better and better!
Next FC glass trend...Bowman's or Hondos? haha, I actually have a rig I think everyone would LOVE that I am thinking about picking up soon. Everyone else may have one soon after! I just need to get rid of a few smaller pieces first. And I do have a custom Redtailglass piece coming eventually that I really have no idea what it's going to look like! I told him I wanted a fab, possibly venetian shaped fab, made with Bubble trap and mystery adventurine and to go crazy with it lol! we shall see. Oh and I do have a little Bowman piece coming! I'll keep you guys posted.
Cool PAG piece my friend got
Oh! I did win a UV universe Marble! He said his pics are awful but it looks great in person, especially under UV! Check this guy out.
Had this lil guy thrown over a 6' brick fence this morning. Thanks posite especially considering it was delivered at 7.00am when three people were home .
Nice man! I like it.
Looking forward to getting this little guy in with the custom drop... Although I asked for the custom drop to be Aqua Azul with White lips or clear lips, not clear with Aqua lips but it looks good and I won't complain. It's a 10mm rig but the drop is a 10mm-14mm so it's a 14mm now
Tyler Bowman is a good dude.
Now, I can see me getting into some of that sweet set up.
How tall is it and where did you get it?
@Squiby - girl...you have all them VapCaps and have never put one through a water pipe (with or without water). Wow, you need to do this.
Personal recommendation, for initial glass....go to the cheap Chinese bubbler thread and ask those guys for some recommended stores on DHGate and recommended products. I know that StevenLMZ and Sunshine are favored vendors with good track records and good CS.
Get your feet wet with a $30 piece of glass then if you like it you can dive into a nice artisan made American bubbler.
Well, at least those are my thoughts on the subject.

Thanks for the advice! Beyond limited exposure to couple hookas and bongs in my youth several decades ago, I know nothing about glass. I appreciate any and all advice. I will go over to the Cheap Chinese Bubbler thread and ask some questions...
I have been flipping through DHGate and the options are staggering. The FC threads have highlighted a few artists and am now following a few. I'm haunting a few glass threads here and beyond being mesmerized by the beautiful diverse pictures of glass in all shapes and sizes, I'm trying to link it all together to learn about function over form and the art of glass.
For a good Vapcap match, this is what I think I have learned so far.
- 14mm joint essential. Male and female will both work. (?)
- match size of water tool to vape. So choose a smaller water tool for a VC.
- Choose simple diffusion over percs or anything that might create heavy turbulence.
I'm not sure if I'm on the right path, but I'm trying to determine the fundamental characteristics to avoid, or seek out, and why, in searching for a beautiful piece of glass.
I do know that I wish to acquire a piece a glass much like I prefer my men; a pleasure to hold and behold. Functional without being robotic. Something that will warm my soul.
