|3 of 5 - Average
|-The 29mm downstem allows more vacuum to the bowl with less effort.
-The shaft of the piece is indeed "Supper Thick" (it's also super thick).
-It hits like a champ. The over sized downstem gives this thing a mean chortle sound. It's the V8 of water pipes.
|-The beaker and downstem housing are MAYBE 2mm thick. So the heavy 9mm shaft is supported by a thin base with a thin housing. Seeing as the base is the only part regularly making contact with something and the housing is the only moving part getting frequent use... the design seems a little bass ackwards IMO.
|My GF broke the housing on my last gogo and I jury rigged it with silicone for awhile. Twas a mere shadow of it's prior glory until I finally TKO'd it on my counter trying to manipulate it in the dark like an idiot. I bought the "supper thick" piece thinking I could overcome my inevitable clumsiness with BRUTE STRENGTH! Upon arrival I found the part I broke on the previous piece was just as thin as my new "supper thick" model. That is why I gave it 3 stars. I would however buy it again based on it's performance. I will just have to be careful when handling it. Good luck to me.

|Very thick glass, gigantic downstem means great airflow, heavy enough to double as a weapon, very easy to clean
|29mm downstem will be expensive to replace if it breaks
|This is a steal at $99. I don't even know where you'd get something like this besides gogopipes, but similar pipes are anywhere between $250-$500.
