This is almost more of an art piece than a water pipe. Very sturdy and very Stony. The one thing I'll say is that it is very heavy I am a sixty-year-old woman and in good shape if you have any kind of weakness in your arms I would not buy this. It's a beautiful addition to any collection.
First off, I got the iridescent green and this piece is gorgeous and very well made. I've wanted and iridescent piece for a while now. But I have to agree with the other reviewer, the mouthpiece is awkward and hard to get a good seal. Honestly, it's just too big, volume wise, inside to really control your inhale. I've been smoking 15 years and still have to clear this thing in 2 passes. If the neck and mouth lost about half an inch in diameter to make it a bit smaller, it would've been perfect. I take it that's why the smaller version sold out so quickly. But if you have the lung stretch and really want this finish, this is for you. I still enjoy having this in my collection though.
This piece arrived quickly and discreetly. The packaging was great, each piece is individually wrapped. This is a beautiful iridescent bong with thick glass. Hits super smooth, I love it!
This is a nice sturdy piece with some heft to it. The slide and downstem are polished and the fitment is perfect. I haven't needed to use Keck clips, and I have not experienced any sticking when trying to remove the downstem. It takes about 20oz of water to cover the slotted downstem. I love the diamond shaped hold and built in glass screen since I do not snap my bowls. How well it holds up is still to be seen. The distance between the ice pinches and the mouth piece is 5.25". The inside diameter of the mouth piece is 1.625" which make it great for holding large ice cubes, but this is also why I can only give it 3.5 stars. With the large opening, you have to form your mouth to an unnatural shape to get a good seal. To make things worse, the outside diameter of the mouthpiece is 2.5" with 90 degree angles so the mouthpiece hits the top of your chin and the bottom of your nose making it pretty uncomfortable. All in all, it is a nice piece and I will continue to use it from time to time, but the size and shape of the mouthpiece prevent this from being a daily driver for me. Your mileage may vary.
