    I'm curious to see that one in action, hope it has good clearance for the lotus top. It looks like it would palm well.

    I will take some pics!!! Ya Im hoping there is enough clearance but it looks slightly angled so that and the bent mouthpiece helps. I will be using it with my mountain glass 18m-14f adapter. I can't wait it looks so clean and thick! Also it looks as though the j hook is on sale now! I got mine for $35 and only $2.50 for shipping! Thanks again @heynowsaywhat!

    I have been using the Jhook that I won in the PR contest, and I really like it.. This is the only one I have ever used and I was really surprised at how much it smooths out dry UD rips.. I didn't expect it to make quite as much of a difference on the smoothness as it does.. The main bend absorbs most of the heat, and I speculate that the way it narrows out towards the mouthpiece also adds to the smoothness of the hit.. I have been comfortably taking good sized dry rips.. I really like the simplicity and effectiveness of the Jhook.. It is more than just a glass tube IMO.. I love it w/ the UD, especially for traveling.

    Very cool :) got this sherlock Jhook today! http://thick-quality-glass.myshopify.com/products/8-sherlock-arm-18mm The deep U bend and narrow neck allow for adding water to make a natural perc. Draw is a bit open with the lotus, but I am still getting good hits for my first few tries using it. Might need to adjust water levels, and still need to try it dry.

    :disgust: Unfortunately though, mine has a crack running through the 18mm joint, so now I am trying to see what my options are with TQG through email. I hope this goes well. While I wait to hear back from TQG I just wrapped the joint with clear tape to help support. Other than discovering the crack, I am very pleased with the over all design. I don't plan to support any ashcatchers with the crack being up in the joint like that. Seems ok with the lotus/reducer.

    This makes me want to pick up a Lotus just so I can use that jhook with it!

    That flat bottom base J-hook looks really neat. I have been thinking of getting a custom j-hook like that made for my A/c so it would stand on its own.

    This is Jesse's site.
    http://www.lotusglass.com/index.html

    He has a Sherlock in the glass on glass section. The one on the site dosn't stand so he offered to make one with feet to stand on. It's solid and won't move at all.
    I think it was around $45, I can't seem to remember exactly.

    Haha, farscaper, notice how nicely my finger sits under the gooch.

    I don't know why, but TQG (top quality Glass) became TAG (thick ads glass) literally after placing my order...

    So, "Thick Ass Glass" is what the shipping label says.... not very discreet...

    Looks nice, bubble here and there if you wanna nit pick about a 7$ item. I did need an unused Keck to keep it attached to the 45° gong on my a/c without the hook rolling on the joint cause the hooks 18th joint is a little shallow.

    Overall I dig this hook but ditch the return Addy for something like "shipping department"!

    Has anyone here used one of these, I was thinking of picking one up on the 3rd.

    Looks pretty small, does anyone think it would work well with the Hammer ?

    Would it work with water or not ?

    Thanx Much !!

    I have one and love it with my PnP, ac's, and LSV. With my Lotus there is not enough resistance for my liking. It is thick and balances on its own, however not extremely stable unless ac is attached or if it's held. Best part is you can email them and customize something, very easy and quick communication! I can't wait til they release the mini recycler...

    Edit- works great with water for dabs is how I use it with h20, but it's a loud, chug a lug machine.

    Cool, thanx @SSVUN~YAH I don't know why but as soon as I saw the picture I wanted one and thought I would treat myself if it would work.
