    Mine shipped quick, like 4 days? I still haven't tried it. Just looking at it compared to f-BOMB confirms what we know.

    f-BOMB and PNWT are both close, but slightly different. PN is thicker glass, FB has more drag and "downstrean jet diffusion" (intentional drag)

    Shoot Alan an e-mail. He can sometimes customize the size to a degree. He made me stems for the Purple Days in the past.

    Purple Days stems fit niceley in a 14mm joint, I just cut one of my spare stems down to make it less wobbly when the PD was on top...

    This is what I was considering as well. Cut one stem down.

    Did anyone get 'shipping info' for their package? I got a couple emails when I placed the order, but no tracking # or further details on shipment.

    I just had to buy another, too - it has survived numerous falls from the top of the Solo, but the last one broke the base. Wish I'd have checked here sooner - I thought I was lucky to get my $70 offer accepted! ;)

    Up there... some where...
    My review is pretty much as already stated here.
    Overall the PWT wins over the f-BOMB in most categories.

    Draw restriction, durability, cleaning and accidental spillage are all in favour of the PWT.

    Durability: PWT is noticeably thicker.
    Cleaning: Since holes are bigger and more of them, liquid flows better helping in agitating the cleaning agent. It also dumps it's liquid in three back and forth tilts, where I found you need to hold the f-Bomb vertical and blow to empty the inner chamber followed by a few repeated tilts to finish the rest.
    Accidental Spillage: Accidentally found when knock over. The f-Bomb immediately loosen some liquid whereas the PWT doesn't loose any. Twice proven..

    Bubble dispersion and fill level are the f-BOMB wins.

    Bubble Dispersion: The bubbles are smaller and travel a little further up the tube resulting in more cooling effect.
    Fill level: More forgiving, and can tilt more before the air leaks without going through water. The PWT needs to be filled further or very little tilt will bypass the filtration. IMHO, this is definitely the only "major" positive on the f-Bombs side.

    Price. Currently the PWT big time but when back to it's normal $129 we are back to you get what you pay for logic. With f-BOMB @ $109.

    Appearance. IMO, no big deal but side by side I like the PWT. The f-BOMB needs to tone it down some. Not a fan of the name to start with or the way they put it together with caps and all. But it is what it is.?

    Hope this helps some.

    Oh, almost forgot. A lazy mans cleaning tip.

    For quick "not bad" cleaning I have started to use a small glass and stand the WT in it upside down to clean the inner chamber first. Put it under trickling hot water direct from the tap.
    Walk away and in a few minutes come back and flip it for a couple more minutes.
    Done and has been working alright so far. I imagine a good ISO cleaning will still be needed once in a while. We'll see.

    Cheers,
    Pipes

    For anyone who missed it, it looks like the PNWT won't be going back to full price:

    @Pipes, Brilliant review and cleaning tips. Very comprehensive. Perhaps you might reconsider making stands for these. They must be selling like hot cakes. I would imagine this will continue with the new prices.

    Cheers

    I use ISO 91 in a baggie for easy 123 cleaning. Just shake vigorously throughout, empty, and wrist flick the ISO out. The thin film of ISO that remains will quickly evaporate. As opposed to water, the ISO 91 evaporates quickly and leaves the interior spotless. Water, on the other hand lingers drop by drop for many many hours, even if allowed to dry in front of a fan.

    I just received the Pinnacle WT and its unusable. :(

    When I fill it with water there is a slow leak right at the bottom where water drips out. The weld down there looks pretty sloppy in one spot and I suspect that is the source of the problem.

    Damn shame too...I really like this little guy...would've loved to actually use it. :(

    That's unfortunate and the OP had a crooked perc. Wish they had alittle better quality control. But when you get a good one you will love it. If you bought from vapor blunt then maybe PM vapor blunt on here for a quicker reply.

    Maybe they got an iffy batch in and thats why they are having the $50 dollar sale? I dont know for sure, but as long as its just cosmetic issues like the crooked perc, id be fine with the $50 price.

    Regardless i have one of the limited custom slyme pinnacle WTs. Its beyond perfect. I wish PV or VB came out with a custom line like that, id happily buy a backup

    No I don't think so since mine is really good and I have seen others that are good as well. Also after the sale I think it's going to $70. They are probably working in quantity at these prices. I'm drooling already and haven't seen it, please post pics of your slime PN tube. How much did it cost you?

    Im not saying theyre defective, im just saying theyre probably blemished or something which could be a reason. Im not saying im right, its just what im thinking. I believe the ebay seller or one of them, originally was only getting blemished PNWTs which is why he was accepting lower offers. That was when they first came out.

    Even if its not the case, if they are working in quantity at these prices, theres a much higher chance of blemished units making their way out...just saying...and these are just my opinions...

    Anyway here you go...
