Default Glass tip updates and durability test

Hey everyone, been working hard to get these done. Still have some things to do before they can be sold. But for the meantime here's a nice little video of me boiling one of the tips and dropping it a little haha.

sorry for the lengthy process, it's a bit of a hassle to get things done.

Designs will come in a variety of colors. Some will include plain blue, red, yellow, green, and clear. Candy-cane striped clear, red, blue, green.

And bam: http://www.hookahpro.com/forum/video...s&videoid=1198

there you go, i dont boil it, but i did drop it a few times before i used it, and i do hit it on the handle a bit, it will withstand some force.

Thanks again Photolinger for reviewing the glass tip, and I'm glad you liked it! After doing some research and talking with my outsource the tips are going to stay the same size, but we will include a grommet in each package to fit each hose. It just isn't cost effective to make them any larger. Doing so would sky-rocket the price of the tips. So having grommets for the tips would be the cheaper solution.

Unfortunately this results in a little snag in production. I have to do some more research to find the perfect grommet.

let me go ahead and say what you need is less of a grommet and more of a thick rubber tube that tapers.

I won't get into it, because the mention of illegal substances is not allowed on hookahpro.com. But no, you won't get pulled over. Having those sort of things isn't illegal, just how you use them is.

Actually, if you do have one of these sitting wide open in your car and it happens to be dirty or is brown from juices or whatever - chances are it's getting confiscated or you are going to the station. I had a friend who used glass to smoke RYO tobacco, and he had it out. he was taken in on paraphernalia charges and was fined. So it's not at all base don how you use it, because if you do use it, you're going to get in trouble no matter what you use it for if someone feels the need to mess with you.

getting in trouble, and being pulled over is entirely different. Cops pull over on supsicion, if your friend was fined and his glass confiscated then he was wronged and can take legal recourse. There's tests that can be performed to determine if the substance in a pipe is tobacco related or not. I personally don't like hearing about stories like this. Our legal system is a bit flawed. I got "In Trouble" for taking pictures of our historic district in town because they thought I was a terrorist... Taking pictures of a post office and fountain.
