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.
I've placed 3 "custom" orders with gooroo. First was awesome, second almost made me write them off completely, third was somewhere in the middle, but in all cases I eventually got what I wanted made in the US for IMO a reasonable price. Persistence and patience are key, and you have to be proactive.

This sounds more like a DHGate seller at work rather than a US store...
Not sure if that's fair. I've had lots of great dhgate transactions :D

I just assume brick-and-mortar and wholesale sales are larger parts of their biz and they don't have great processes in place for online sales that aren't "stock". I don't intend to steer people away from gooroo, just temper expectations. I still think their quality/cost more than makes up for it :2c:

Hey @Likun looks like BiaoT just made a piece that is similar style to that natty neck, uses his double gridded inline perc instead of FOL, I think it looks very nice quality and design, but probably cost a bit more... There is a function video and you can message them on Instagram to ask about buying:

I love gridded stemline ! How much is this beauty ?
Maybe a recycler version would be great ,cause this one would have some blowback for sure ,cause it probably stacks bubbles to the top.

I don't know, that's why I was saying you can message him on Instagram to find out, I'm guessing more than $90 probably 120 or 150? Biao does make some large recycler tubes, I don't think you would have any more splashback here with the natty neck, and I have the straight tube double gridded inline, it does indeed stack bubbles like crazy, but I don't load a lot of water so no blowback dangers in the stem, I mean I guess I'm always using a drop-down adapter too!

Pretty sure that one was a custom order.

I agree, but I think they are going to make more and offer it in other colors as well, that is what has been happening with another recent custom order for a double circ perc piece at least! I'm still bummed bc several weeks ago I missed out on a discount RBR that was blue with opaque white because I took a few minutes to think about it lol

Hey all. I haven’t posted much her but definitely enjoy following along. I went to a local head shop today and came out with another American made, Virginia, piece by Licit Glass. They only wholesale to dealers but if you can find one I feel the are decent for the price. In the past 10 years I’ve bought three pieces from them. An 18” straight tube, a bent neck can with an inline perk, and this slit perk 14mm bubbler ( paid $100). I bought it specifically to go with my Anvil. It only takes about a 1/2 second to milk it up with the Anvil. I can’t wait to run my B-1 through it.

Yeah that one looks great and quite similar! A bit over my budget though especiall plus the shipping...
Options in Europe really are limited if taking shipping costs into consideration.

Well I've looked around and found some maybe interesting pieces:

Apparently most of them are some kind of "cheech & chong" edition which I'm not especially a fan of but if the piece functions well I could live with that.
Any thoughts on the above mentioned pieces maybe? Basically those are more or less the same pieces with different percs.

Here are some suggestions,in case you are looking for smth made in EU . Those guys have their glass blowing studio and offer both high end and cheap stuff. Here is some of the lower budget suggestions,some of them are made to order so you will have to wait 2 to 5 days :).Also customization is possible.

Thanks for the input! I didn't know about this shop but the first one looks great, better than those I've quoted.
I'm really considering to buy this one.

Ah sorry I didn't know or forgot you were in Europe!

Yeah I would say all but the first one seemed decent if you like them, you would need an adapter of course for the mail ones, logos annoying but they have nice colors at least, and bases, but nothing too spectacular...

Nice find, seem unique, though I cannot tell what the pricing is at all lol

Yeah dude, the first one does look nice, definitely the best of all of these options, go forth! The only concern would be the lack of a base, but if it is made to order, maybe they can make you one with a base to be safe...

@Shit Snacks 43,33 € for the First one :) ! You can change currencly at top right corner (PLN) to (EUR) or (USD). They are made in poland. I have very positive experience with them. Mateusz,the shop owner is a great dude.
I agree about the base ,but any customization is possible as you mentioned:) .
Checkout this 90cm monster,lol . It is only 58.57 euro. It would be great if the bottom was just a continuance of the tube with a wide base :),too much volume with that bubble. Looks like you can fit so much ice,that you can catch an angina.

And the higher end stuff is very jolly.
Look at mister Poopybutthole ,lol. The onion perc also looks fun.

Thanks for throwing this up. I was able to grab one. $140. I bought a natty neck with a stereo matrix on DH Gate a bit ago but the perk sucks. I’m glad he is doing these. I bugged him awhile back about doing a natty neck but he said he couldn’t?
