Base Diameter: 4in.
Diffusers/Perculators: Fixed stem “Waffle” perc
Ice Pinches: 3
Almost all of the drag on this tube is at the very beginning but, once it starts bubbling there is no noticeable drag. One of my favorite things about this tube is the flow can be adjusted to your liking by changing the water levels. There is also some slight drag on the clear.
The “Waffle” perc has three gridded slits all positioned near the end of the perc. The diffusion provided from the grids is incredible. All of the holes fire when I pull on the tube unlike my friends older “Waffle” which has slits that are more spaced out. The “Waffle” bubbles really nicely, usually stacking three to four inches of bubbles.
When it comes to craftsmanship I’m a stickler. In my opinion the welds are a little bit sloppy and the reinforcement on the joint seems a bit wimpy. The tubing is a little warped around the perc’s reinforcement too. One good thing I noticed right away way the perfect placement of the ice pinches None of the things I saw effected the function of the tube in any way though.
This is a great functioning tube but the craftsmanship isn’t perfect. I highly recommend a “waffle” tube to anyone who likes a nice, well diffused hit.
** If you have any questions about the tube feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to answer them.

Edit: The last picture makes the tube look off center but it's not that is just my sloppy tripod work.
