    Default Need a new pipe stone vs glass

    Well i dont really but i do, i've got a silver palm, hardly use it any more as it's got a bit of a metal taste to it. Was going to go for wood, but then thought about cleaning it and the wood taste. So i want something thats just going to give the pure green taste, thats another point it's for green not hash.

    So i'm stuck between glass and stone, i've heard that stone will keep it cooler, i've never tried either so hoping you guys could fill me in a bit. Oh and don't want to be spending over £20.00 cause i'm a tight fisted
    Been busy in life, sorry to have missed so much in the forum.

    Don't know about cost but glass gives a much more pure taste because it can be cleaned so much easier than stone. I use Isopropol Alcohol 91% or greater and if needed I add salt.

    Cool so you would suggest a spoon then? I often thought they looked more for women.

    Spoons are normally pritty sturdy little things if your looking to carry it around. Shire pipes are nice for cooling but more delicate than a spoon.
    Stone pipes I tend to fine (imo) develops a taste after a while. A thicker heavy spoon should stay as cool as a stone one would anyway

    Glass defo allows for full flavor

    So apart from the artist arent the spoons all the same or do some use better glass and more rods for the colour?

    Spoons are as different as the artist who makes um. The thicker normally the stronger ( I have made spoons that have bounced after being thrown out of a moving cars)

    Beware if it seams too cheap as in a few £'s its probably Indian or Chinese (serious slave labor glass) n cheap quality glass to boot often times not kilned. Which mean it will most likely crack on you at some point for no apparent reason.

    Glass has no taste and is easiest to clean. 'Everybody does it' site has hundreds of them in every colour you can imagine. I've went through a few in my time they're pretty sturdy. I'd stay away from the roor steamroller pipes as they're weak as shit and will brake after 1 drop.

    Lets us know what ya went for bud.

    those are the Chinese and Indian pipes I was talking about fyi it you look at the carb on the top one you can see it is very small and flush with the pipe. So it wont clear nicely with out pulling through the bowl hole as well, also with the carb (shotgun hole) being flush with the pipe after a few hits the smoke gets so hot inside the bowl that it burns your finger when using it.

    Solid colour work like that should be more expensive than a tenner in just gas & glass and shipping half way around the world, the poor guy or gal who made this will have got next to nothing. Not trying to be a freaky hippy fairtrade n all but I think its important we as customers know where our product come from and who we are supporting.

    Made in the UK by myself or one of the glassblowers that works with me you would be looking at £25-50 per spoon (solid colour) fyi that's a fair price for something made in the UK (as we all know everything is more expensive in our wonderful country)

    out of the 2 the green one looks like the best smoking pipe imo

    GH (nazi fairtrade glassblower) lol
