First Impressions, sturdy solid piece. Great feel, love the mouth piece design and carb size, the hole in the bottom of the bowl is too small and clogs after a few grams but due to variances glass blowing others may have better luck with that detail. Now to to the ash catching design. It works fantastic. Now dont expect this to catch everything everytime. It's simple physics as to why ash will still get to your mouth hole haha. But the design does great to filter but let's be real here it's not a water piece. So expect some ash here and there but minor. HUGE CLOUDS HAHA be careful she will get you.
