Great bong for the price, gives a powerful hit. As Lauren complained, the green paint on the shaft of the bong peeled very easy and once it starts to peel, it looks ugly unless you remove the rest. The base of the bong is made of stronger stuff. This bong doesn't have a large girth but ice fits in nicely when cut into halfs (ice seemed to make the green paint wrinkle). Unfortunatly I was careless and the down stem and Percolator stem have both broke on my purchase.
