    i know some of you out there want to know how the two compare. So I snapped a pic of two and took some measurements. Can say that the Roor Vapor Tech is bigger in every way. The roor also has less drag. Almost like normal breathing drags. If you got weak or small lungs I thing the Roor is the one. Have tried different water heights and that has a impact on the draw as well as the type of bubbles made. Now between the two as far as performance I would say a 10% difference or so on the draws/ where the Herborizer takes more effort to draw.

    Bottom line if I didn’t score the Roor I think I would have been happy with the Herborizer XL.

    Now on to the physical demensions:

    Measurement. Herborizer XL. Roor
    Height to mouth
    Piece. 13” 15.5”
    Base. 5.5”. 6.25”
    Height of can to
    Bottom of can. 7.75”. 9.5”
    Percs 4 holes. Multi holes
    Joints. Both 14mm mouth piece and 18mm downstem

    Does the herborizer xl fit in those 10" smell proof duffles like skunk and ryot make?

    My RooR came with a padded case for transport which is extremely padded!
    Nice accessory if you travel.

    For me the RooR is my perfect water tool!

    @Alexis This thread is just for you!!

    Nice to see this post! I always wondered myself about the size difference.

    I love my RooR Vapor Tube!

    Edited to add: can we get an up-close shot of the diffy?

    @Dubmonkey Just want to thank you for doing the work to make this thread and pics.

    The RooR Vapor intrigues me but i don t know if i can justify the price, and if i can i probably would prefer to give my money to an more individual artist...

    Since Stevenlmz79 is apparently designing a glass bowl for the FP, and is quite receptive to the FC community for bubblers, perhaps he can make us a RooR clone?! FC-RooR! What say?

    I wish I could just buy the glass. I want a gong mouth piece like that to use with my old vapor tamer from 7th floor

    Hey man. I saw you mention me here just now by fluke- was it in an edit? Did you know I have appointed myself chief ambassador for raising awareness of correct FC usage.

    You sir, are now in big trouble! No excuse for such an FC legend and Pro to make such a rookie error!;)

    I will let you off with a warning, this time, but I will be watching.:goon:

    I suggested this to @Hogni recently since he haa been the man driving this communication and action. Seemed like a great idea. His replied thoughts on the likelihood:

    Yeah I know, however one of the only other site design weaknesses, for me goes some way to justifying a double post in some circumstances.

    Like how you can be exempted from the law in special circumstances. Maybe I am misatken, but I don't believe you can add a quote via an edit, (or even after starting a post?).

    And, even if you could, your homie would probably not get the post-edit alert. So I can watch and wait, as soon as someone else posts, jump in with the comment I didn't include in my post...

    Or I edit my post, hope you will see it AFTER the edit...or I pm you "Yo, Bio- I just edited post #314259 have ANOTHER look."

    These are important communications bro, I don't want anybody to miss out, OR have to wait.
    Call me a rebel, bit I do feel there is a valid argument in there somewhere?:nod:

    The day the roor goes on sale, I'm all over it. The one thing that @Dubmonkey mentioned is the restriction. Really think that will help with showerhead, since it's so wide open. I know a lot of combusters like bubbles to stack, but I like @lazylathe videos (no stacking). If anyone finds roor vapor bubbler for cheap, please post in this thread. TIA

    The Herborizer bubbler hasn’t been used in a while. Will refill and use tonight. Been on the roor trip for the last few weeks besides the Micah Evans flatcycler.

    Very nice. @lazylathe I swear Splitz's exhale looks and flows EXACTLY like your own in all your Roor vids. In a distinctive way I mean. I immediately noticed the similarity. Not sure how to qualify that observation but something along the lines of the Roor bubbler's unique "Exhale signature" Lol!

    Im quite sure I didn't imagine it anyhow(?)
