I'm getting a kickin' urge to purchase some glass real soon, but I have a super tight budget right now so I'm thinking about getting this SYN beaker off ALT for the time being until I can afford something a little more extravagant. I haven't heard much about SYN so I'm really just wondering how the quality is and how well they usually smoke. I want something cheap but I want to also function really nice. Any info you guys can throw at me about SYN would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance blades!

is that the 4mm or 5mm thick one? My buddy just bought the 4mm one with the perc for $110.

the $80 one? Seems to be a nice starter piece. I would rather pay these guys $80 than $80 at the LHS where you'd get something of much lesser quality.

Yeah it's the $80 one. It will be my first legit GonG, so it does seem like a really nice piece to start with. I just want to know about the quality/functionality before I go off and buy it.

SYN makes great glass man. I have a shower head stemless and an inline ash catcher by them and both pieces are top notch. Very solid construction and very durable. For your first piece I would say you are making a nice choice with anything from SYN. ust my 2 cents :wave:

Definitely go for the SYN; reasonably priced and no huge difference in quality from some of the bigger names.

I say go for it! If you can wait like a week, I can let you know how my friend's is. The only difference is the added perc but that's $30 more.

I hear they make nice quality glass and it's hard to go wrong with a simple beaker bottom so it'll function nice for sure. I can't comment much on the perc'd one since I haven't seen or heard much about em.

Syn makes good glass. They milk up nice and quick, are durable, produce a clean hit that tastes good, and made with good quality glass. I would recommend a Syn to anyone. In your case, if you can wait and save an extra $30 to get a perc'd tube you will not regret it. You got good taste in glass :D

Thanks for all the feedback guys! Looks like SYN is a pretty solid choice and it also looks like I'll be ordering that beaker on Monday when I get my paycheck :D

Now I can't wait. :devious:

Bad news guys..my check wasn't enough to get the tube this week :( but most definitely getting it in the next two weeks when my next check comes, they gave me shit hours last week. Something new has come up though, I wrote SSFG on etsy about a simple beaker with a simpe diffuser and it would only be $110 for the tube and shipping. So now I have sort of a decision make, SSFG or SYN? Both are in the right price range, so it has to be one of the two.
