I decided on this base because I initially really wanted to get the coil perc with my order but was short on funds. This was my solution to be able to afford a base (which is kinda necessary), but to also be able to have the cool look and smooth draw of a coil perc. The coil perc filters a little differently than the coil in the base, but still similar effect. I couldn't be happier with my choice of this base, it really does look, sound, and function superbly. Very smooth easy draw with no drag, leads up to my 2 glycerin percs perfectly for an unmatched rip.
