Re: Just bought a malibu gold...
I like the vase. The stem is cool, but could do with a few less decorations. It's a modern pipe so it will have a common or plated common chamber and won't quite purge as nice as a traditional. However, the purge doesn't matter too much at all. The key is the draw. I'm sure you will love it and have plenty of great sessions with it. Be sure to take good care of the stem as it screws apart. You don't want it to rust or to strip any threads. Congrats on the new rig and happy smoking.
