I picked this piece up during the Black Friday sale for about $85. It checked off every box that I had been looking for. Glass thickness over 5mm, beaker base, ice catch, at least one visually interesting perc (no trees please). Being that it is no-name glass, I was concerned about the performance. However, I can say with 100% certainty that this thing hits extremely well. Minimal drag, easy to milk, and easy to clear. This bong is an amazing value at full retail price... and if you can get it on sale then it's a downright steal. Definitely recommend.
