Literally obsessed with this pieces
Hits are smoother, but the mouthpiece is not rounded enough to be comfortable (there is a little flat spot on top that puts unwelcome pressure around my mouth) and I don't like the splash guard - it just makes it harder to fill and empty the percolator chamber below it with water. Also the fixed downstem tube is a little higher than it needs to be, resulting in me getting slightly cross eyed when looking down at the bowl as I light it. Other than that it feels like a solidly made, durable water pipe that does give smoother hits, even though the 18" height requires a bit more effort to pull through both percolators. I've already traded it to a friend and am renewing my search for a double percolator straight tube that I can fall in love with.
this is the best bong i've smoked out of in a while. i lost access to all my previous bongs after a separation and this one just rips so much better than any of the 15 inch beakers or straight bongs i've had before. easy to clean, but sometimes the **** will get stuck in the bong if you don't have an ash catcher.
