This rig is really smooth, looks great in use, is much easier to clean than it looks, and most importantly to me the airflow is really open, it doesn't feel like you're chugging a lot of water. I always go for the lightest fastest breathing airflow and usually that means not much water but not here. I like trying bongs and rigs, I tried every hydratube and base from DHgate to find the best airflow/smoothness combination and this is at least as good if not better than my favourite combos, usually either the showerhead base and showerhead “recycler” (doesn't really recycle, this one does) or tree perc base and top.
The first time I cleaned the vortex perc recycler I broke the adapter I needed but that's always a risk getting used to new bongs. Apart from that it's been plain sailing, and mine even has a tiny pinhole in the glass around the spiral tube, leaving room for a potential upgrade to a freezable glycerine coil cooled rig if I syringed in some coloured glycerine and seal the hole.
