I was always a pipe girly. A good rolled j is always nice. But this.....THIS has very quickly become my absolute favorite ever. I have always been Intimidated by bongs, however this one is perfect. Easy to get a good size hit off of, and not feel like you're going to cough a lung up as well. The size is perfect for starters who don't have a huge "lung capacity". It's super easy to clean and If done regularly enough, it stays pretty looking. The 14mm bowl is a good size and I can pack it and share or spend half the day on the same bowl. I personally thought it would be more blue but it's straight up clear iridescent, the photos make it look more blue due to the background. But that's my only complaint meaning I can't complain at all. I definitely love this peice. The bowl in photos is not the same type I got but it works well all the same.
