Wow, that is damn clean, mate!
Sorry about your balls.
I like small and short, personally. I have a OG real Bates and Worm external diffusion pump (not the Gravlabs collab) that is tall and thin and hardly ever use it. This is it:Any opinions on straight tubes?
I'm thinking a LA Glass Slim Boy with Elev8 Diffuser Beads. Probably more of a small dab / bowl set up.
I cold started some Blue Dream crumble in a reactor core banger with that straight tubed rig. Whoa! My only real gripe is that you have to stand over it to both keep the trough level and to allow it to perc properly.
A straight or beaker would allow me to pivot it at a 45 or so to get the working surfaces level and also bring the mouth piece to me, not me to the mouthpiece. I have my C5-C7 fused, so ergonomics matter to me.
The smaller volume sounds better for smaller dabs and the length sounds about right. Looks like a solid product.
What say you gĺass heads?
My favorites are this Mobius Atom (love this glass). This is what it looked like in The Cave Smoke Shop:
This is what it looks like in my house! LOL
I also very much like this Phatt Ass Glass hover perc....and yes, these are all reasonably small rigs with less volume for dabbing....not sure why I have so many, I'm mostly a flower guy. haha And like @momofthegoons, I just pick up the rig and rise it to my comfort level. The Bates must be hand held...not stable enough for me to just dab without support, IME.
