Hello All!

Got a new tube in from the beloved Grasscity Shop:yay: =)
Percolater Bong - Dutch - Grasscity.com

To start,
Posted Image
[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNnyrXvtWG4"]YouTube- M4H01068.MP4[/ame]
21" tall
50mm bore
5mm glass
18mm joint
Gram+ slide
5in 9-Hole Diffuser:bongin:

This came shipped absolutely bomb-proof.
Thank you GC.:gc_rocks:


This is a 50x5mm tall tube, sitting at 21 inches tall,
Posted Image
this tube is FAT!
Not too worried about handling this tube.
Posted Image
The thickness of this tube really impresses me.
Being a double dome perc tube, one might expect some CRAZYZANEY amount of drag.
Compared to other tubes i have,, the only downfall OF the flow, is the tubing that is inside of the actual dome itself.
Posted Image
Seems to be much smaller than the 18mm bore of the joint, but this has not made me like its any less of a tube.
The welds seem super, super clean, as the percs feel nearly nonexistant from the outside. Super clean, as if they were quite skilled with the lathe.

The cuts that were made into the dome itself are large enough to compensate for the small tube inside the dome.
These percs, are really pretty!
Posted Image

I could have expected roughness of the outside where to the sections were divided, but my fingers run smooth throughout.

The joint on this tube is Non-Bistable, meaning there is no reinforcement glass.
Posted Image
But i dont crack my glass into stuff, im always watching where i go with tubes. CAREFUL!
Posted Image


There are little beads of glass on the hex foot of this tube,
Posted Image
which arent equal is height, so the tube CAN move, from side to side. I dont handle my tubes roughly enough for it to scare me, but take these words as caution, as hopefully they prevent any further breakage.

Shipped stock with a
5" 9-Hole Open-ended diffuser.
Posted Image
This is so key, in helping the tube "Purr"
Posted Image

This tube is carbed, which i have no objection to.
i could possibly stick a fat blunt in there and double the dose! lol
Posted Image
Posted Image
Also came with a rubber carb stopper.
Unlike the rubber cork that g-spot produces, this is a grommet style stopper.
Posted Image
Simple to pull out, and reseat, Im glad it was supplied.
Perfect for times when i feel like carb,, or no carb lol

Thank you to Glassmansdoll for providing me with a 14mm 5" showerhead.
Posted Image

It was sculpted for my "Blackleaf 'Blue Dragon'" tube, and it fits this new tube soo well!
Posted Image
Since its an 18mm, i needed to wrap a torn tissue around the joint in order for it to fit, kind of jimmy rigging an adapter.
Posted Image
There are no noticeable leaks.

Stock bowl is ENORMOUS!
Posted Image
Its 18mm, and capable of fitting over a gram inside of it.
Posted Image
The craftsmanship of the bowl is not the highest of quality, as there are many bubbles around the maria section.
Posted Image
Posted Image
This does NOT affect or ihinder performance and does NOT scare me into thinking
"oh hey,, this bowl is going to break soon"
With a small anti-roll bead, i feel like i could party all night with this thing haha!
Posted Image

Grasscity is really kind, and supplies metal screens for every order i have ever made, so If this is your first tube, you are already set.

Currently, it sits at $65.95 USD
Grasscity.com Coupon Codes (3 available) - Tjoos
They update that site with coupons for use.

Grasscity was quick to deliver on standard shipping.
It arrived within 10 working days from time of order.
I havent bothered using the High-Priority option.
No shipping delays have been experienced.

Happy Toking!

EDIT: PICS AND VIDS AND MORE WILL BE AVAILABLE WITHIN THE HOUR.

the first few videos it sounded like it had a major air leak going on. instead of buying a fleet of cheap bongs, why not just get 1 really nice quality one?

Thanks for taking the time to put all that up. If everyone did that, we would have a huge knowledge base.

Yup. You're welcome!
I feel like i could boost sales as a company rep lol

AMAZING review dude but I can't really tell how well the bong functions the way you are hitting it. Re-milk and really milk it and maybe we can get a better idea.

+rep for the quality of review but like I said, better milks will make this perfect.

Holy shit u are bong hitting shisha? Yea i bet putting a direct flame to that makes for a really really really harsh hit. I do enjoy that pom flavor tho. mix it with a lemon or lime it's really good too.

I don't blame you for not hitting it hard it you're really packing shisha in there. One time I held a flame to a bowl that wasn't quite dead yet on my old hookah and hit it with my friends and we have probably never been in so much throat pain ever hahaha. Not a good call.

so he has some left when the super expensive one breaks(you can say "oh im careful" but one of your friends or yourself will undoubtatly break it)

to the op.
once again a awsome review and a awsome bong for on the cheap :)
good buy
