I recently decided to fork up a little extra money and step my glass game up. I was going to go for a nice percolated bong, then decided to go the local route. I live in KC and found this place called "Headspace on Troost" that blows their own glass. A heady pipe and bubbler/bong later, I'm a full supporter in local glass. The bubbler/bong is their line called "Armor Glass" and is EXTREMELY thick; thick enough to be picked up by the employee and slammed agains the counter without any signs of breakage. Also note the wigwag heady bowl/ pipe. Toke on my friends.
