    You don't NEED a 14mm joint. You can always get a reducer if you find a nice piece of glass you like that's 18mm.
    I'm not positive about using VCs with male joints, you will need someone else to confirm that.

    Definitely stick with simple diffusion if you want to keep flavor.

    I do really like that piece too @Stevenski . I don't want to open up the wormhole of browsing instagram for glass just yet though...

    Sounds like you're getting there.
    • A female 14mm female joint will pair best with VC. Male will require adapter(s). If you find something you really like with 18mm (also female), a 14mm to 18mm glass bushing/reducer can be found many places for cheap (<$10). I use one on my 18mm pieces with VC often.
    • Match water tool to size of vape, but also what you think you'll like. With small so small these days, "medium" could be fine.
    • Yes, stick with the simple diffusion.
    And, I'm finding it is a BIG wormhole!

    Yes, 14 mm. Either a female or if you get a male you will have to get an adapter (not big deal, most of us end up with a ton of different adapters over time anyway). My suggestion is definitely get a 14 mm female.

    Yes, you don't need a big honking bong for a VapCap. Nice medium to medium small bubbler should do the trick nicely

    As far as diffusion, this gets to be an issue of personal choice. You see a lot of folks go for maximum cooling and smoothness and these folks will like a lot of diffusion. You see a lot of folks who go for less diffusion in order to retain taste. I'm in the later camp. That and a lot of the really high diffusion pieces with multiple percs, etc just seem to be over done to me, but somebody loves them or they wouldn't be made.

    I love it when you talk dirty like that, Squiby! :brow::lmao::lol:;)

    I had the good fortune of winning a really nice Pulse piece on IG last month. And I am happy to say that I really like it. It has a 'leaning tongue' diffuser that gives really smooth hits with zero chug. Too big to be a dab rig but perfect for vaping. The nail from 420titanium was another part of the winning package.

    This piece is NOT scratched by @mvapes .. very obvious in person. Not as precise and not scratched as deep as he would; he would have never left that messy weld visible. But nice none the less.

    Well,
    Those of you who buy custom pieces know it can be so rewarding sometimes and so heartbreaking others. My most expensive custom to date was a fab. It was finally finished after over a month and it cracked in the kiln last night. Wouldn't be a big deal but he says the colors that I picked (He suggested them) didn't agree with his style. I asked for a fab using some Bubble trap he had just received. He said yes but he would have to mix it with another color so we decided on Mystery Adventurine as the second. Not that big of a deal but I hope he comes through with something as beautiful as this one was before the crack :cry:.

    Sad this piece will never see the light of day

    That sucks, following a lot of glass blowers in Instagram it sucks to see a beautiful piece get a crack. Seems like some colours are just tricky/prone to cracks. Have seen a lot of posts cursing the colour opaline.

    ..that REALLY sux about that fab crack....that is an absolutely stunning piece...perfect all around...very interesting on the marble above the perc....would be cool if it too was diffused....hopefully the next works out because it's hot.

    I know, He is willing to make another one but I have to pick another color to replace the Mystery Adventurine. I was thinking of some other Blue/Green Swirly color. Maybe something like Glass Alchemy's Dragon's Eye or something cool like that. I guess Blue dream would work. Do you guys have any new awesome opaque green/blue swirly type glass colors you know about?


    On a positive note I did got my Bowman Window Cone rig in!!

    Check it out, huge triangle opal at the top of the Aqua Azul cone 3 hole perc. 10mm to 14mm custom drop with Aqua lips.

    Oh no, just an artist I follow on IG.
    @mrbonsai420 would have a better idea on price range as he just picked up a cone from Bowman.

    I would guess that colab with Hondo has to be ~2k.
