Got a new tube in from the beloved Grasscity Shop:yay: =)
Percolater Bong - Dutch - Grasscity.com
5in 9-Hole Diffuser:bongin:
This came shipped absolutely bomb-proof.
Thank you GC.
This is a 50x5mm tall tube, sitting at 21 inches tall,
this tube is FAT!
Not too worried about handling this tube.
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.
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!
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.
But i dont crack my glass into stuff, im always watching where i go with tubes. CAREFUL!
There are little beads of glass on the hex foot of this tube,
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.
This is so key, in helping the tube "Purr"
This tube is carbed, which i have no objection to.
i could possibly stick a fat blunt in there and double the dose! lol
Also came with a rubber carb stopper.
Unlike the rubber cork that g-spot produces, this is a grommet style stopper.
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!
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.
There are no noticeable leaks.
Stock bowl is ENORMOUS!
Its 18mm, and capable of fitting over a gram inside of it.
The craftsmanship of the bowl is not the highest of quality, as there are many bubbles around the maria section.
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!
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
