I asked a few days ago if anyone had any experience with Royalty bongs, and no one really did, so i ended up just buying it yesterday to try it out on my own, and if it ended up not being that good, it was only $180 out the door. Also had to make a trip to the club to get some stuff to break it in and ended up picking up an 1/8 of sour diesel, gram of purple diesel, and a couple edibles anyways, its about 15" tall, 5mm thick, single 8 arm perc, 18 to 14 downstem diffuser, and best of all(really why i bought it), a recessed joint! I loved my nameless piece(made same factory as roor usa, but the line was discontinued about 5 years back) which also used a recessed joint, but i had let a friend borrow it, and he broke it. It origionally had a 18mm downstem, but he didnt have any 18mm diffusers short enough due to the shorter length required with the recessed joint, thats why its an 18 to 14mm diffuser, but I actually prefer this setup as it makes it look much more flush, and the downstem and bowl barely stick out of the tube, not to mention most of my bowls i have laying around the house are 14mm I was skeptical going with a brand I hadn't heard of(although i had read they were made by phire bongs), i am glad i decided to go with it! I rips amazing!! I actually greatly prefer this tube to my 14" LUX mini perc, as well as my previous German RooR's rock solid seal at the joint, thick glass, and a very solid glass surrounding the joint due to it being recessed, however most of their tubes use a standard joint and not a recessed one. i would HIGHLY recommend a Royalty tube. The glass appears to be of excellent quality and build, and a very smooth hit, that actually makes it my preffered piece. And i owned my share of quality glass, American RooR perc, German roor straight tubes, ADS perc, LUX perc, HVY, nameless, pure, and phx. The the glass doesnt appear to be as well made, there is one tiny blemish in the glass i noticed(the size of the tip of a ball point pen), but this is one of the smoothest, if not the smoothest bongs i have hit(minus a roor perc with vaporizer bowl using a heat gun) here are some pics, but sorry for the poor quality, it was with my phone. my girl is using my camera while she is visiting her friend in arizona. I should get some higher quality pics tonight or tomorrow anyways, just thought i would share my positive experience with this brand, and let me know what u guys think!!
