the jumbo looks to have about the same footprint as the one I have, both say they are 12 inches tall and roughly the same shape, actually the jumbo looks to have a bit smaller footprint honestly

Might not fit... Measure your pipe first:

Jumbo is heavier though, 3 lbs (vs 2.25). The middle section will be a lot bigger, but the actual footprint will be similar.

Perhaps a wide base from Saharasmoke.com? See below:

The saharah smoke one looks good, but they only have a 1.75 inch opening and the base I have is a 2 inch opening, not sure I could wedge that extra .25 inch

I have a green dish vase from sahara and it is amazing!
Heavy gorgeous glass and a great design that holds lots of water!
I love it so much more than bell vases!
Looks awesome on my halzone also!

Does it fit even though there seems to be a .25 inch difference between the two?

Did they not include a base protector? That would fix the problem most likely.

I did buy a base protector, but it didn't help, made things worse I think, had little feet that meant that even less of it was in contact with the ground lol.

Dont waste your money on a jumbo base, the paint will come off way too easy.

meant to say more like carpet squares they have a short carpet and pretty much make a flat surface so it gives padding like a base protector and also the carpt being woven would give it less friction therefore when you pull the base would have an even less chance to move or if it gets tilted a little. also if centered say for some reason it does fall it would be falling on carpet instead of a tile or wood floor assuming that one of those 2 are what you have it on now.
