One such model is the Mini Segway Tube.  It comes set up as a direct inject with a female flower slide for all of you herb lovers out there. Throwing a domeless nail or quartz banger on the Mini Segway is all it takes to convert this guy into an amazing shredder for any 710 sesh. Measuring in at a perfect 8'' tall and featuring colored lip and foot wraps, as well as an amazing "segway perc". This piece will soon become a daily driver in your collection.

Odor Control September 05 2015, 0 Comments

When it comes to enjoying your smoke, some times the odor it causes can create some unwanted tension. No one wants to get stuck with a $200 carpet cleaning fee for smoking in their hotel room either, or give the police probable cause to search a vehicle. Most of us have come across what is known as a "spoof" which is usually a paper towel roll stuffed with dryer sheets. This dorm room technique is amateur at best. The best product on the market right now, that I have come across, for smoke odor, is the Smoke Buddy.  The Smoke Buddy is a personal air filter that comes in three different sizes. Take a nice rip from your favorite water pipe or vaporizer and you can blow all that smoke and vapor directly through your Smoke Buddy, with only clean air coming out the other side. It completely eats the smoke, it's almost like magic. On top of that, you can light up some nice incense or a scented odor eliminating candle. What are some of your favorite odor eliminator techniques? 


Now Carrying ill Glass September 03 2015, 0 Comments

These are some of the most impressive functional pieces out on the market. The level of detail is astounding, and quality control seems to never let anything less than perfect leave the warehouse. Hand made Colorado, U.S.A. these are Illuzion Glass Galleries personal scientific line. When you hold one in your hand, you can immediately feel the high level of craftsmanship that went into this piece. They are all thick, and have a nice hefty weight to them. They have many popular models, as well as many models mixed together for more function. You will also find no shortage of collabs with your favorite high end glass artists such as, Darby Holm, Buck, Joe Peters, Jason Lee, JOP, and many many more! My personal favorite model right now would have to be the 50 watt recycler. The function is superb, you don't have to worry about inhaling a mouthful of water, and it is a nice compact design.  What is your favorite ill glass model?


Keeping It Clean September 02 2015, 0 Comments

Keeping your glass nice and clean is not always an easy task. As many of us know, the more frequently we use our favorite piece, the faster resin will build up in it. Cleaning after every use can be a little excessive for most people, but the longer you let it go with out cleaning, the harder it becomes to clean it. Water pipes for flower will also build up resin faster than oil rigs, and are harder to clean out that thicker flower smoke resin. My personal go to cleaner is Grunge Off. Grunge Off is formulated exclusively for glass, no scrubbing or excessive shaking is required for Grunge Off to clean your piece. I personally like to keep two bottles worth of Grunge Off in a plastic tupperware container big enough to hold multiple down stems, hand pipes, bowls, and other messy glass accessories. I usually let my dirty glass soak overnight, mainly because I don't need to use it while I'm sleeping. However, only an hour is usually needed for most pieces. After your pieces are done soaking, take them out of the container of Grunge Off and rinse them off in hot water. The hot water rinse will remove any remaining residue clinging to hard to reach areas in your piece. A single container of Grunge Off is reusable for up to at least three months of rigorous cleaning. If you like effortless cleaning, Grunge Off is for you! What are some of your favorite cleaning methods?


BG Glass August 19 2015, 1 Comment

We recently discovered @BGglass_ on Instagram and immediately fell in love with his Double Intake Klein Designs. We made sure to pick them up in both Fixed Bucket and Direct Inject models. Easily some of our favorite new additions to our glass line up.  These Kleins feature a three slit diffuser, two intakes, one drain, reinforced bridged stem and mouthpiece, as well as a really cool milli encasement on the back. The fixed Honey Bucket models will of course come with a cap! His fully worked mini tubes with basket weaved joints and removable honey buckets are beyond impressive as well. Looking forward to see what the future brings this amazing up and coming Artist!


Proud Hi Si Glass Retailer August 18 2015, 1 Comment

We at Captain Ed's have been very fond of Hi Si for many years now. Hand made in San Leandro, California.  They offer a unique selection of percolated Water Pipes that will help reduce the negative effects associated with inhaling hot smoke. It all starts at the bowl, the Hi Si Drain Slide is going to offer maximum air flow and reduce drag through out the entire piece. Next, the smoke passes through the Tear Drop Honey Comb Diffuser and is chopped up into hundreds of small bubbles rapidly being cooled by the water reservoir. Then the smoke passes through one of the many different Peculator models offered by Hi Si and receives additional cooling. Finally the smoke passes through the Industrial Ice Pinces, so thick they can hold crushed ice for maximum cooling! Hi Si calls out to all our inner Mad Scientists with their clever Periodic Table of Elements logo and Measurement Lines printed along the sides of many of their models. Fans of function and style will not be disappointed when pulling out a Hi Si at their next gathering.  Order yours today!
