I bought this bong a few months back and fell in love with it immediately. Everything about this thing is beautiful, well crafted and intelligently designed. The glass is heavy and thick without being cumbersome. The colored highlights found on the base and at the month piece (mine are black) are subtle and elegant. This is a piece to show off without being show-y. Outside of the ice chamber, which awesomely doubles as a thumb grip, there are no weird or out of place design elements to speak of. Aesthetically this is a science beaker impersonating a bong, or a bong impersonating a science beaker. Nothing more, nothing less. No worries though, by the time you slide the bowl piece up and out to clear the bong you wont remember what/why you were disappointed in in the first place. Because there is nothing there to be disappointed over.
One other note worth mentioning, this thing is bottom heavy and the base is flat. You will be hard pressed to accidentally knock this thing over next time you're stoned.
What are you even waiting for anymore? Buy this thing now!
