    Hello All!

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

    To start,
    [​IMG]
    [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,
    [​IMG]
    this tube is FAT!
    Not too worried about handling this tube.
    [​IMG]
    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.
    [​IMG]
    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!
    [​IMG]

    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.
    [​IMG]
    But i dont crack my glass into stuff, im always watching where i go with tubes. CAREFUL!
    [​IMG]


    There are little beads of glass on the hex foot of this tube,
    [​IMG]
    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.
    [​IMG]
    This is so key, in helping the tube "Purr"
    [​IMG]

    This tube is carbed, which i have no objection to.
    i could possibly stick a fat blunt in there and double the dose! lol
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Also came with a rubber carb stopper.
    Unlike the rubber cork that g-spot produces, this is a grommet style stopper.
    [​IMG]
    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.

    It was sculpted for my "Blackleaf 'Blue Dragon'" tube, and it fits this new tube soo well!
    [​IMG]
    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.
    [​IMG]
    There are no noticeable leaks.

    Stock bowl is ENORMOUS!
    [​IMG]
    Its 18mm, and capable of fitting over a gram inside of it.
    [​IMG]
    The craftsmanship of the bowl is not the highest of quality, as there are many bubbles around the maria section.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    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!
    [​IMG]

    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!

  4. Yo dogg, you hit the bong like a pussy.
     
  5. lol! morning bumpp!
     
  6. 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?

    Nice setup, cool it with the CPU heatsink on your desk. Thanks for taking the time to put all that up. If everyone did that, we would have a huge knowledge base.

    PS what's up with the aquarium full of pills?
     
  8. and why all the event bracelets? Some things we will never know =p
     
  9. Aha Aquarium full of pills :confused:
     
  10. great review.
     

  11. nuff said..:(
     
  12. Yup. You're welcome!
    I feel like i could boost sales as a company rep lol
     
  13. 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.
     
  14. ive been burnin down pomegranate hookah in it. milking THAT like woah is going to be too much for me to handle.
    i wanna get a coal sized 18mm bowl made for it so i can truely smoke it without actually BURNING the goods
    feel me?
    thank you for the positive vibes!
     
  15. 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.
     
  16. 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.
     
  17. your charring all your bud by ripping your bongs that hard. nice and slow, milk it then BOOM a fuck ton of smoke comes out of fucking NO WHERE
     
  18. i got used to it after a while
    but as of last night, i now have my Illy glowrod with me.
    preserves flavor
    anyone have a spare hakko / phedor?
     
  19. 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
     
  20. thank you =) i will keep reviews like this comin
    i have tubes upp the wazoo
