This is the first slush cup I've owned so I'm not sure if they were previously made this way but the glass feels so cheap & lightweight. Also the flower gets stuck in the middle A LOT & isn't so easy to clean out. A bowl with a screen like the upline bubbler would have worked better. Besides those dislikes, it does hit smooth & you get a lot of smoke in there. It also sounds kind of cool; like when ur cups on the last bit of soda. I had a coupon code & used it on this. If it wasn't for that I wouldn't have paid $90 for this.
