Nice pieces :love:. Quite expensive, especially the bigger one, but exactly what I need for the Anvil.
Just need a retailer in EU, because customs and other shits :\

Anyone try the New style from yingmin on the gate? Calling it ogb seems wrong as it looks to be ripping off O’Connell’s inception style. The more traditional ogb-styled hooks are a killer value for the price. This looks a bit “busy” and I’m not sure about that mouthpiece shape, but a modular j hook is kind of interesting.

Edit: added a link!

It looks like an OGB Inception Prophet. There's gotta be some sort of nod to RWW he can toss in there too...

Oh wow, it's not quite inception either as it seems like the inner piece is not a tube but a sealed hollow cylinder? Sort of trying for a dry straight fab, by using spikes... Plus that removable 18 mm female bent mouthpiece

Oh yeah, it does kind of look solid now that you mention it. I guess that renders the inner spikes useless aside from aesthetics.

Let us know how it cools @Abele Rizieri Ferrari! It’s not so spendy, so I’m tempted to order a couple of the more conventional style as backups in case I drop mine and get one to try myself.

Yes, while it probably has slight impact on the way air and vapor move through the glass, I doubt it will be noticeable. I'd rather they put an effort to really nail the faberge style element in stead of seemingly gimmicky spikes but it is what it is.

Snake hook :rofl:

Unconventional look, but with its angles and standing capacity it's a rather functional dry piece don't you think?

Imagine if the two parts that stand upright were real short and both had the female joint, would make it flatter and easier to store plus byomouthpiece is always nice.

This is my first J-Hook ever. He hooked it up, super fast delivery, and he even gave me a free gift! Thanks GVB!!! :rockon:

This one rules! I bet it is absolutely cool. Did you do a pinched mouthpiece on that?

Well that goofy hook came in and while during the wait buyers remorse had been creeping up in me, now that it's landed I'm actually very happy with it. It's well made, quality similar to that of the other iterations but the craftspersonship is way better on it than it is on my set of spiked hooks I already got from them.

Some shots:

It's a pretty huge unit because of the heft and thickness mostly. It's maybe only an inch taller than their other iteration of a hook that's often mentioned, but feels related to this big bro as well:

(Look how stable!)

The mouthpiece is a bit more narrow, which is not an improvement per se but it also doesn't bother me for now.

I've used it with TM2 (yes it fits! My previous one only fits with TM1)

I can post a pic of the mouthpiece later or if anyone got questions let me know. It's a nice hook though and the removable mp and straight fab in stem is pretty awesome for a j hook to have :rockon:

Edit: did a short video showing some more details as well as side by side with their other 18mm right angle j hook: https://streamable.com/koec0o

I have bought the same Thing and im a bit disappointed that the Air doesnt travel through the middle glass part, but around it. Otherwise it would have been a bit Like the prophet from idb. A bit of a waste of dimpled glass. Taking Hits with a TM1 on 5 is really nice, from 7.5 on i must Couch with Long draws.
