Great looking piece and easy to clean, when you've got the technique down and the right amount of water it's great to use. First time users are either going to have not enough water in it or they are going to get a mouthful of water because they haven't learned the draw technique. In water pipes i've used in the past you want to pull a little harder during clearing to clear it quickly. With this pipe if you draw hard after the bowl is pulled the water LEAPS through the honeycomb and into your mouth. You basically want to keep the same draw tension after you pull the bowl, don't **** harder to clear it faster or you're getting a drink. The other thing I've noticed is if you tilt the pipe towards you while you draw you are far more likely to get water in your mouth. It's better to set it on a flat surface and lean over it, the water bubbles more evenly this way and it is less likely to jump into your mouth. Can't decide if I want to try another base or add a perc to the honeycomb, but definitely getting more Grav glass in the future!
