    I absolutely love the piece @mrbonsai420 definitely the nicest art on any glass I own. Functions perfectly as well, only really great things to say about the piece and the artist. I plan on getting a larger piece done by him one day

    I was wondering how people feel about leisure incyclers. I got one the other week and like it quite a bit. It's the heaviest piece of glass in my collection no doubt, and holds the most water giving a heavy rumble but not a noisy annoying one. But it's not splashproof, even with only a little water. Give it a rip like youre clearing a bowl and youre gonna get splash. I've only gotten water in my mouth a few times actually using it, and that was with really really high water, like 4/5ths of the cans height. but it's happened. The main problem is theres no warning like on most pieces, where a drop or two splashes our lip or you feel bubbling come up the mouthpiece, instead it just shoots up without warning. I'm not knocking on the piece for it, just don't have it overfilled. It also claims up fast, but for someone used to only two hole minitubes an incycler is definitely going to condense more oil... only the leisure clogs after dabbing only a gram or two through it, while i've never clogged any other pieces. I clean them all religiously. The perc just collects claim. It's the 4 slit version, so it vortexes almost effortlesly. But it builds claim by the globs. Hot water fixes it, but only for another few dabs. My buddies 2 slit inline version has to get ripped to vortex, but he never complains about clogging. It claims up too though.

    All in all i'm actually extremely happy with the piece, it's just the oil condensed as reclaim i don't like. Does it annoy anybody else especially with recyclers? I never hear this complained about at all really... that is $ going to waste... I was a minitube guy but wanted something for when i got sick so it was smoother, and it sure is helpful, i'm getting over a cold now and it was really nice to have such cool vapor. A dab out of the minitube would have sent me back to coughing for hours probably, but not the recycler.
    So anybody else gotta leisure incycler?

    OK , My girlfriend just ordered my custom Johnny Landini (Iamglasshappy) recycler! My first heady piece and by far my most expensive. And my first recycler. Funny I collect glass and smoked my whole life and never cared about bongs.(just vases, marbles, paperweights, et) I started vaping and using concentrates and I have some bad GAS and VAS! It's getting expensive.
    It will be like yours except teal instead of red and since I use an enail and a Liger nail I got a dropdown and a Tentacle dab tool instead of the dome. Should be sweet!


    I can put it next to some of my other sea themed glass when I''m not using it!

    I ended up with a 7" Klein a couple days ago, so I had to look up recyclers, and ended up here.

    I've never used one before and this one was dropped into my lap.

    I'm using it with a D-nail SiC halo, of which I'm a big fan of.

    This one: http://www.thickassglass.com/products/tag-7-klein-incycler

    Anyway, it's quite thick and functions very well. It's China glass, so I'm glad it's overall great quality.

    Yay recyclers!

    EDIT: Oh, I'm curious. Where does the name Klein come from? I tried to find where the Klein Incycler started, but it doesn't seem to trace back to anything.

    Does anyone know?

    WooHoo, My first recycler is on it's way!
    It's by Johnny Landini or @Iamglasshappy.
    What do you guys think of the function video? Does it look good to you?

    Nice rig, I think I'm setting up the cheap chinese version but would love to see whatcha got going on under that carb cap to be sure. Are you able to leave the e-nail like that with the dropdown, is the klein heavy enough to support it without tipping over? What do you do when it's heating up for example?

    Oh and I'm pretty sure it goes back to somebody named klein lol. Seriously, I saw it somewhere maybe there's a thread here but I think it's a pretty established scientific principle. Or something.

    It's a d-nail SiC Halo. Yeah I leave it with the drop down like that full time, and the Klein is heavy enough to hold it.

    I was letting the nail heat up out of the drop down, just so the thermal expansion didn't crack it, but after not doing that a few times, I've realized its not necessary.

    So since I just got my first recycler, I stumbled upon a lot of posts about how they can be hard to clean etc.

    I haven't found it to be difficult, so I wanted to post how I do it, just in case someone hasn't thought of it yet.

    I just fill it with hot water and let it sit, then I heat up 99% iso alcohol in the microwave for 15-20 seconds, and pour it in the rig. About the same amount as the water you'd use to dab with.

    Then blow through the joint. Like you were hitting it, but the opposite way. So you don't inhale alcohol fumes.

    And do this a bunch. It cycles the alcohol all around and gets to all those hard to reach places.

    Then rinse it with hot water and fill it up and blow through it again. Do this a couple times.

    And that's it. No shaking required.

    I just cleaned my rig and figured I'd mention it.

    I wouldn't say recyclers are hard to clean, but takes practice to fill with water. At least mine, the mouthpiece and joint are small.
    I tend to soak my glass in Grunge cleaner overnight. Sparkling the next morning

    I'm s shaker. For me it gets all my pieces clean and more shaking gets them dry. Careful using only hot water if you have hard water. The glass will start to fog up and stain. I find that heating the outside of the glass with hot water, then pouring in ISO, then shaking, emptying, two drops of dish detergent, some hot water, shake vigorously, then thoroughly rinse out with cold water. This process gets even my most intricate and hard to clean pieces sparkling fresh.

    ... i find for best results, after doing the ISO wash (cleaning the gunk out) rinse with vinegar to get your glass sparkling clean with no water/calcium marks.

    I can vow for the vinegar trick... Makes things sparkle!!

    Man that ocean themed piece is very very beautiful... I would be afraid to use it... Functional art without a doubt.

    Sucks being on the other side of the ocean, seems like the European glass scene is simply non existing...

    interesting. Never tried that. Never heard of it. It doesn't leave a smell or taste? I'll have to give it a shot.

    I usually have a couple bottles on hand and I always buy a bottle when I got to the grocery store. My wife usually buys a bottle when she goes shopping as well. :lol:

    Yes vinegar works great. My daily driver had a lot of build up because I wasn't that carefull with it, short soak in cleaning vinegar and everything was sparkly like new. Just rinse well afterwards and there will be no taste or smell left.

    ... no smell or taste left over from my experience. I forgot to mention before i rinse with water after i dump the vinegar.

    it will smell a little like vinegar after but the smell dissipates quickly

    Have been looking at those dok pieces, believe a member here has one with purple rain and beautiful line work.

    Any idea how to contact him without instagram?

    Facebook. He does no custom work though if that's what you want to contact him about.
    I'd just make an IG account. I never wanted to either but since I got more into glass...it's pretty much a must.

    You can find his stuff on Smokinggear, not much up atm though, usually sells pretty fast.
