    Mothership workmanship for production is unmatched in my collection. The perc's are laser etched and the glass is perfect. You will not find an imperfection in the piece. If you do, it would be promptly replaced. I think they are my thickest and most sturdy pieces. However they are costly - they truly over value them a little, but they sale well.

    I really love my small dabber. Wish the swing skillet honey pot wasn't so much . I would love one of those to turn the Torus into a pure MS oil rig. Right now I use a domeless quartz nail which isn't MS...

    The Torus internal recycler really isn't that unique. Most internals are similar in design on the funnel area. The perc is special though and the size is right in the sweet spot. Definitely like the Torus over the egg though.

    EDIT: I picked up that Sovereignty worked recycler finally. Interesting design and I do like it. The mouth piece is funky though. The disk is vertical verses horizontal - not quite the way your mouth is shaped... It does allow the heady work to show well though.

    The Perc is very high in the tank so the pipe needs real high water, but is easy to draw. One of the easiest recylers I have. Also I was surprised at the size. it is only about 8" tall. Again sweet. Also the floating opals in the joints are nice too. I will throw up a few shots soon and perhaps a vid.

    Hey PhotoRider,

    I'm happy to see you agree with me on the fact that Steve Beer's work is awesome for dabbing!

    Both his recyclers and his normal rigs (micro, traveler, pendant...) are my favorite daily drivers for errrls and it is because the glass is super sexy (I don't know how to describe, the curbs are fluids, the shapes are really nice, the glass quality is superb, the weight of the piece very reassuring and those MOFOZ pack a punch)... Really aesthetic, flavor & smooth wise Steve does some of the best work out there IMO!

    (+ the guy sent me a glow n the dark micro rig after my bad adventure with BWG.com, for free, to replace the piece I bought from those gangsters and that never showed up... The guy is an AWESOME PERSON!)

    And yes 7,5 to 9 is my favorite size too for a home piece (though I'm also really digging the 4,5-5 for travel purposes when the cooling effectiveness is not compromised by the nano size of the piece: that's true with my nano delicatessen and my nanos S. Beer's).

    I love my Beer piece, too bad it broke in shipment... Still waiting on the replacement and the shop doesn't seem to reply anymore :(
    So I have never tried one yet. I know something will happen. My friend, owner of my local glass shop is good friends with Steve and discussed it with Steve directly today. He said he was swamped with orders and would make it high priority :) The shop had placed a large order so everyones on it.

    I remember your situation on yours. That is great the blower himself stepped in and fixed it. That is service.

    This will not be my last Beer piece. I have lusted over an UFO version. I really like the size. I will probably try to push my buddy to ask for a custom - a one of a kind to see what Steve would do :) Get those creative juices flowing :D I do like this puppy:

    and this one :D

    Like you those two sizes are my favorite now. The Jedeye/JRed recycles I have are the 4-5" size and the 7-9 is of course my favorite. A 4-5 is an awesome traveler.

    100% agree the SB recycler is very high tech and an excellent recycler. It was my first one and I love it :)

    Man the recycler craze is around us. I am happy to see more designs hit us. This size looks just perfect.

    whoa, that is a sweet piece by Aaron. Very similar in design to the Blazemaster, but with its own flair.

    Glad you like it. I was impressed with how well balanced it was. Really dig the Blazemaster too. I was pretty tempted on the Culbert, but it wasn't the one. I want to go pendant size, I can afford a way headier piece if it's 2 inches tall :p
