I'm new to 420, and this is my first big name brand piece lol. I was drawn to it by the see-thru pyramid perc in the base, as well as the green ooze color accents. Just enough color to draw you in. Bought this over the holiday and so far I'm very pleased. It makes a solid, quality chugging sound thanks to that 360 degree percolator. The glass is thick & durable. It's fairly easy to clean if you run RezBlock in the water. It gives you a thick mass of smoke, so get ready. I'm in love with my Mav and would recommend this to anyone interested in a beaker. Would definitely buy more Mav in the future.
