Thread: Do push-bowl bubs still move?

  1. #1

    Default Do push-bowl bubs still move?

    Does anyone make them still? I'm trying to gather a run of proto stuff to keep myself afloat. So just wondering if they are a viable product anymore.

    Sorry about that shitty answer, not everybody actually likes to be helpful.

    Pushbowls are not as fly/"in" as Martini style bowls it seems. I haven't had a request for a push bowl for over two years.

    come on, you know people still piss into the wind and get wet. it happens.

    aka you're right and wrong, while requests are low or none, people will still buy them. consumers don't "know" what they want.

    sorry about your shitty attitude towards my metaphor.

    I happened to think this was quite ironic because the other day i was thinking of posting a conversation thread where i expressed my feelings towards bubblers, i don't generally care for them, my least favorite pipes. Now as far as looks i love the look and making them is really fun, but the function aspect gets to me, i hate cleaning out the bowls. that and i usually spill water on myself or all over the place, making me stink like bong water...lol but other than that i love them...lol

    and as far as martini style or removable drop stem bubbs... thosse things are garbage. just get a bong.

    oh and rigz bite a big one as well.

    just my opinion though.

    Yeah, honestly I feel the same way about them. All around my least favorite. They get dirty and it's a pain to load them and cash em out. Was just wondering if it's even worth screwing with at this point.

    It seems like there is no reason to make anything you don't like. With all of the legal weed shops, headshops, and crazy access to direct sales on the internet it shouldn't be hard to sell some well made glass.

    Make something that you use yourself everyday. Focus on functionality and make it pretty then sell folks a well made pipe.

    I'm not sure why you gotta use it. I make a lot of tubes, large ones, and I never use one. Using the thing shouldn't effect what you make.

    So....I would assume that you don't use them because you do not like them. Why then, would you make something you do not like. just sayin' that's what is wrong with the world today and for a long time. People strive to get money, not what they want.

    Not sure what a martini style is? The only thing that comes to mind are thoes cheapest thin wall bong slides , circa mid 90's graffix style. Not sure if your talking about skillets or what. Could we get a picture?

    I would say bubblers still sell. I don't know of a headshop that does not carry a selection still. I think the high end bubbler market became softer when Rigs /oil became common. Lots of "hard core " smokers moved over to Rigs. The same type of smoker to spend big money on a bubbler. As far as affordable middle of the road bubblers.... They still sell just like they always did.

    are you retarded? or just looking for beef where none is? I don't use them because I don't hardly ever smoke weed, and huge bongs also give me acid reflux.

    If everyone wants handspun beakers and will pay for them, it pays my bills, all good

    Get a life!

    You think its smarter to live on the street, and eat garbage, or pay the bills on my mortgage and house and have a happy home? I'm not sure its retarded to not try and get ahead in life, but its not retarded to pay the bills.

    In rural areas they do. In hip urban areas dab rigs are king.

    Around my area *coastal urban* the only thing smoking wise anyone asks for is dab rigs and occasionally a pipe
