I have had a couple bongs for like 8 months snd had a couple spurts where I would smoke a bit out of it but still smoke joints all the time, but I recently bought a fairly big plastic one with a metal pipe.. I know yawn same old same old but I live in butt fuck newfoundland and our only headshop is good but if I went in there and asked about ROOR or ehle I'd get the confused look haha but my question to you is when using your screen do you unscrew it and dump the ash or just pack new bud on top? Also if you only smoke pieces how often do you hit your piece? I usually smoke joints only but you taste the bud so much better with a piece and get turbo baked off the hop. Usually I bust up around 2 grams and smoke a few one hit bowls and a couple joints but I'm looking for a nice glass bong, I have a color changing pipe but there's no screen and I find that I suck ash through so I prefer a screen.
