Cheap High Quality Bubbler

Technically NOT a bubbler (please forgive 🙏🏻 :rolleyes:) but for lack of a better place than the j-hook thread, what's up with this thing?:
Anyone have one or know anything about it...? kinda cheap and there are more discounts available... could maybe be useable in some way... 🤔?
It's a ripoff of Cloud Connoisseur's Prophet. Check it out:

The Prophet is totally kick-ass and the best dry piece I'm familiar with, fully worth the price.

Cool, good to know...! I'm not much into dry-vaping, myself, but thanks for the info!
420eng's gonna be making a little humidifier with a 14mm joint to use (via glass splitter) with dry rigs or dry bongs. You'd get the benefits of a dry rig (feedback, flavor) without the dry throat. Not sure when it will be available but it looks really cool.

Edit: and I believe you, don't get me wrong, but isn't this thing like 1/5th or 1/6th the price...? So really more of a cheap "knockoff", than a "ripoff", per se, seeing they are both in completely dif ballparks price-wise...? Or is it a total POS, too?

Yeah, cheap knockoff, a little different, not the same level of quality thick glass or workmanship? This one seems to have 14 female for both connections, there was another knockoff that I think had 10 mm for the mouthpiece?? So that is a difference along with the whip etc... Yes it is really cheap, and it can be very effective for cool dry hits (However there is a strong negative reception for it here, because we are such supporters of cloud connoisseur, being a FC homegrown member, also I would be biased since I helped design the prophet, but you can't argue with that price and there are plenty of other knockoffs here even if not typically clones of other members work per se)

Haha, yeah, so why bother posting, if only to be hated (even more), huh....? lol... seems like you can't post anything anywhere anymore... what a bummer....

Haha no hate, I was just explaining why they used the term rip off, potential negative perception here is all (I get you're making innocent mistakes or not even mistakes really at all just overthinking maybe which I always do)

Well, I was gonna post that I got this for like $30 from them a few years ago and it's decent enough, I suppose and use it now and then, tho it's 18mm and not my usual 14:

I remember this one, it is like the DO20 style with different body

Idk, to be honest, it's probably fine for cheaper glass. "Ripoff" is a loaded term but as @Shit Snacks says, I'm just salty over the blatant copying of something otherwise unique. Some small innovation (other than size) would at least suggest good faith.

I bought this same rig from LCV under another brand (katalyzer, iirc). Used once and then given away. Terrible waste of everyone's time. Really restricted airflow through that unnecessarily small 10mm mouthpiece is only the first of many significant problems with this piece. Honestly, a $7 j hook off of DHGate is better value. Don't be me.

Yeah, thanks, I already have a few j-hooks of various quality I rarely use, so I wasn't interested in it at all really (much prefer a lil water)... just curious. I've also never really even cracked the CC thread, for whatever the reasons, I'm not really sure...🤔

Btw, this one has a 14mm intake....✌️

All my days in a daze...
Much of the steam behind this thread, and DHGate glass scene, can be traced back to the first piece FC worked with Steven on copying, the Bates & Worm Diffusion Pump, which became the FC-710 (I still use one from the first batch daily for dabs lol).

Live by the clone, die by the clone.;)

Yeah that thread is fun to see the various unique vapor focused glass designs at the very least... Explains how the prophet works if you are still missing something about it, or I'm happy to explain the thought process behind the design for effective function (definitely a whole other level from any hook in my experience)

Yes of course, it is interesting though, they had originally made a clone variation of the OG prodigy, that is not even available anymore, and they didn't seem that good, but they did listen and remove the listing so they do have some sort of scruples I suppose lol depends on the reaction etc (the pieces that I had them copy recently, were specifically pieces that are no longer available anywhere, for those and others they at least tried to make their version more of their own, also based on feedback they had received to help stand apart)

Probably some have been mentioned before but this thread is just really, really huge!

I am looking for a large recycler around the 15 inch mark. Not too much choice in this size. Any tips?

EDIT: Oh and needs to be available in Germany!

And it's a blessing! :)
But they mostly have smaller ones <10 inch. This is one I found that has a nice size:
But don't find any reviews or anything on that one. Looks good though!
Also of course sending large glass pieces from China is hard, so maybe that's something I should look for at local stores. But again, not much luck.

Thought maybe someone here can recommend a nice one!

Has anyone actually (no doubt someone has) tried one of these for vaping....? I'm just a tad too old for the whole gravity (not facemask/bong :tup:) bong thing and am curious about vaping with one (whilst also obviously being too lazy to use the search function):
I dunno, I mean unless you have lung issues maybe? Why bother? Kinda seems a lil (more) like masturbation with vaping if you ask me....?(yeah, I know you didn't :rolleyes:):

Edit:
Again, not at all cheap, but def not "heady"... This looks a lil interesting... for the simplicity and relatively big tubes (easy cleaning)...?:
I'm sure there are ways to get a better deal... or maybe wait til tomorrow... (not for me tho 😇)

There is nothing hard about getting them from China, it can be really quick too, just does require some patience typically just in case... You never know, but I've gotten a ton of stuff, the bad experiences were more rare for me, with a pretty large sample size lol

But the one you linked there looks terrible to me, way too much going on, not going to function well, not sure what they were going for, but there's a lot of china glass especially recyclers that don't actually make sense because they don't really know what they're doing lol I also think complex pieces like that are often not a good idea particularly for herbal vape use...

I have been looking at this for a while as a few peeps say it is great with ball vapes and the vid I saw with one looked pretty good...just a bit over my usual cheap glass budget...the mouthpiece looks nice too.:tup:

I have one from Biao with pink and blue color, it is nice, but I really don't like to use it... I've used it with Halo Atlas and I think Zenith along with Tetra and TM, but the chug resistance in the piece makes it not so comfortable... (I know you don't have a problem with the matrix barrel perc of that Genesis recycler like I did so maybe you won't mind the gridded inline perc here, but I found it really ruined the experience with too much diffusion killing flavor on top of the air flow chug) and I am much more a fan of single uptake recyclers instead of the dual uptake I guess for similar reason how it affects the airflow chug...? but price was right on mine

@PizzaWizard looks pretty much perfect tbh! Although the last reply has me doubting that again... 😅
@Shit Snacks as an expert, what are some larger recyclers you would recommend? Btw not against ordering from China in general at all, was wondering about large glass pieces in particular, I have zero experience with that.
@Bologna We used to built those! Called it a bucket. Is great if you don't have access to an actual bong. 😁

Well to be fair the one above is still okay and fits that description... But I don't know that it gets much better than the CC influx although it is not exactly cheap... And I don't even have mine yet to be certain lol The new klein from popular glass is a great option though it is smaller, so it depends what you mean by large exactly and why maybe?

Well I'm coming from the bong and always liked the bigger sizes. The one I am using daily now is around 50cm with 9mm glass, so pretty huge and heavy. But using it now with ball vape with cable is really impractical and I think it's just a matter of time until I break it or burn myself. Very small pieces are not that much better because if I put it on the table I have to kinda crouch weirdly to use it, and if I pick it up to use it's the same problem as before pretty much. So long story short I was thinking: A medium size (large for recyclers) one would be perfect. Preferably with a bent neck / mouth piece. So I can just put it in front of me on the table and use it while sitting in the chair without moving it much while the heater is on it or me getting up. Idk it all made sense in my head!
