I actually do not have any water tools (apart from a hydrotube), let alone a bong, as I do not want to have them standing around with little kids. The vaponic (plus) has spoiled me tastewise (and made be fond of torch powered vaporizers) so I wanted an all glass alternative that fits into a drawer (or a backpack for that matter). The functionality should be comparable, though, or would you disagree? Anyway, it was very affordable (32€) and will arrive on Saturday, so I will see for my self. If it blows me away and I crave for more, I can still consider buying the standard one (also cheap: 24 € on amazon) and maybe some small bong.
