While I wait for that piece I missed out on to go on sale again I noticed I don't have anything with an inline perc in my collection. Anyone have any good recommendations? (unless those suck)

Inline perc, also called stemline, are awesome, if you use the search feature at the top, you can find many more that way, but the easier recommendation is the GooRoo large inline, maybe their small inline (@AJS posted a great video with his now on IG) and Licit Glass has a nice one at nhalables and/or brothers with glass... There are also many cheap on DHgate, but most of them are actually quite small unfortunately.

Thanks! Didn't realize stemline was the same. I was just looking at some Licit on nhalables...

Actually, technically, inline is more broad I think, like a showerhead or fountain head can be inline? Stemline is a bit more descriptive of the right angle slitted or holed inline percs we see more often... Biao and others have the gridded inline, then there is also a barrel matrix inline, gridded ones are nice as slits with dots added, such variety!

I haven't found it in the thread, but I did want to put in a good word for glass warehouse. They have a line of "House Glass" that is American made and affordable. I contacted them because I wanted something small, thick, and without an ice pitch. They were responsive to my inquires and while I'm not sure that they do a lot of it, they did take the time to communicate with their blower and get me exactly what I wanted. TLDR: Trent was very accommodating and hooked me up with my one and only piece of custom glass :):

It was $90 shipped; and while it took a couple of weeks to get it from the blower it shipped quickly once the store got it. They also threw in a spoon pipe, a plastic grinder, and a note that they provide half the value of the order in free stuff. Not sure if it was a forty dollar pipe, but it was a nice surprise.

The piece itself is nice. There are a few tiny bubbles, comparable to what I've seen from Goo Roo and LA pipes. There was also a slight discoloration on the lip of the down stem. It is as thick as a hair, and I'm sure it isn't a crack. I didn't fret because breaking down stems is sort of a hobby on mine.

Anyway, I had a good experience with them and you might want to take a look at what they are offering.

Do you have a pic with the downstem?

On small tubes such as this, I find the downstem is plenty enough to perform as an ice catch. I dig it!

I think most people like the ice pinch because it diverts water. I mostly use a dynavap, and with the restricted air flow it generally isn't a problem. I just have to be mindful when I clear it.

Nice piece!
If looking to open up your airflow on your DV, try a Joe King stem. It is all I use anymore.

I thought that fritted disc perc to be very bad for taste and very difficult to clean
I have iso and an ultrasonic cleaner and will let you know once I get it. Yinmin sent me a function video and it looked pretty good...totally different from anything I already own and I need something that will filter aggressively and hopefully mute the taste of a couple of pounds of not-so-great buds I need to press and get through. (fucking 2-spotted mites)

I got one these at a cheaper price, I think $170CDN. Also small fritted disc ash catcher. Neither was very hard to clean and use the bubbler mostly for combusting hash.


Have these coming this week.



And a 2nd one of these.

My favorite is this one where output can be taken off the top or a off the side like a regular ash catcher, many options with this one.

@LesPlenty Lumin88 recycler arrived, very fast shipping actually (the blue recycler I ordered from SmokingBong shipped similarly quick however it is stuck in customs inspection and I'm presuming it's going to get sent back lol) and yeah it's the same as Yingmin5 just a different storefront

Looks like really nice quality, the glass is very thick, everything is even etc. I am feeling a little paranoid about the black glass though, are we sure it's actually glass, and not just black paint?? Just worried about the mouthpiece before I use it, with blue glass I would have been more certain... Asked them

My smokingbong shipped 12/30, got stuck in customs 12/31, then yesterday it said “exported directly sealed” and moving to next stop; so hopefully progressing 🤞🏻

They replied quickly, I think this checks out:

Did I get that right?? What else could it be:

Nice, yeah you never know, they seem to use different shipping fulfillment services, each order I've gotten from them the tracking began with a different lettering indicating a different shipping service... This one just began with a number and look at this BS:

Last time that happened with Biao blue saki bottle they returned it to sender after a month of it sitting there, that time it didn't say inspection though... Last order from SmokingBong arrived via SF but the tracking stopped being scanned for a month and then it suddenly arrived by surprise so maybe I'll get lucky with this one as well?!

Always a gamble, mostly I have had a lot of luck, the male heady tentacle rig I ordered from DJsmoke has tracking that has not been updated since November 14 though so hopefully that suddenly arrives too... Finally, those heady drop-down adapters from newpipes have still not actually been sent, they keep just saying please wait patiently, pretty ridiculous, but whatever, not a lot of money, I'll keep waiting I guess :rofl:

I broke the stand on my Large Inline last night :cry: and I would like to replace it, but my recent experience trying to get a new stem from Goo Roo has discouraged me and I may just look for something else. If there was a big sale going on I might feel otherwise, but that is not the case. I'm not in a hurry, I have other glass, so I have to think on this a bit before I bite...

Since the can and stem are undamaged I may try and create a new base for it, at least temporarily...

Maybe the holidays led to an atypical experience with Goo Roo customer service. Sorry about your broken bubbler either way; my Large Inline is the only piece I use anymore. For what it's worth, my only experience with Clarisa at Goo Roo was very positive.

It's not gonna make you feel any better about your accident but have you seen the new glass thread from iDB? I think the Prodigy is too much of a massive moonshine jug for me but I love the idea of vape-specific bubbler designs. Curious to see the j-hook or whatever dry piece he has in design for March release too.

I'm not sure if you can really call it entirely atypical, since you only have your one experience, and yeah others like me who had good experience, but there are more than one who have had less than stellar experience, just saying, could be the holidays yeah? I mean they're not perfect, like most situations, some people have a good experience but there's always those who do not... Eh just semantics lol

Anyway yeah @cybrguy sorry for your loss, I don't really know what they could even do for you in this case, feel like you would have to buy an entire new piece at full price since they don't even offer the discount you got back then anymore... Fortunate that it is still functional, perhaps it needs to be glued to a wood base, with another piece of wood glued to fit in on top of the wood base in the broken part of the glass, so it is even, can smooth with some resin glue??

Haha yeah prodigy is unique, still plenty left for pre-order I believe, and pretty cheap for the unique functional aspect and thick glass, not cheap compared to most China glass maybe, but the quality is above and beyond I think... Dude everyone is going to love the dry glass piece, it is more than a hook in fact, I helped design it, so so so excited!!

He will have another water piece design available perhaps later in the year, I think we will all be very happy with that as well, depending what he comes up with, I think I shared some good ideas for that too... :brow:

Usage Updates: switched to using the little RBR with herbs instead of dabs, much more enjoyable, working really well with Halo... Meanwhile the Lumin88/Yingmin5 recycler was doing well with herbs, though I switched over to dabs with it and that is how it will stay I think, really nice smooth hits with it! Also the heavy base and tall angle of the mouthpiece are phenomenal, I don't have to hold the rig stable at all now, two hands free.

Yeah, this was just a sucky mistake on my part, nothing they did and there isn't really anything they could do to fix it. A piece of wood or plastic or something as a new base may be at least a temporary fix. It is very unstable as it is. I broke it by letting a TM slip out of my hand when I was putting it into the stem while holding the piece in front of me. At least I didn't hurt the TM.

My problem with them is the downstem I ordered from them for the HD3 that (randomly) broke on me which I ordered and paid for has not been shipped (as far as I know) and I have heard nothing from them since paying for it a few minutes after they sent me an invoice for it on 12/30. She told me it would go out in a couple days.

I knocked a BCG onto my heady hook, the clear 18 mm female joint unfortunately, only a slight chip crack though thankfully, the glass is super thick! Still a little sad...

Oh yeah have you followed up with them? By email or phone at all since then? Yeah you shouldn't have to though!

Easiest fix would be a polymer clay
I was thinking clay might be the easiest best fix. The pieces that broke off shattered so they are of no use. I am not an artist but I would think remaking the base shouldn't be that hard. I assume a hobby shop might be a good place to get that? Not a fan of Hobby Lobby, but there are others...

Those Monster bongs are quite cool looking...

I have not yet followed up with them cause I am using it as an indicator of whether I want to do more business with them and I want to see their colors. Not looking good so far. As I said I have other glass in the mean time.

This is not China glass. I expect more from them...
