This thing is all around an amazing piece. From the second I got it I could tell the quality that was put into it. The base is over a centimeter thick, and super wide. The walls of the tube itself are incredibly thick as well. I was looking for a really good herb piece, as my tolerance has been going up and I wanted to be able to take fairly large rips. This piece fit that perfectly, especially because of the extra layer of water filtration. Even if you accidentally pull the downstep out (which is bound to happen with a non-fixed downstem), you will not be inhaling unfiltered smoke. You can fill this thing endlessly, it's that big and has that much water filtering. The ice pinch is a nice addition for when I want even cooler smoke. I have had the piece for 3 or so weeks now, smoke every night, and haven't had to clean it. I'm interested to see how difficult it will be to clean (my guess is that it will be more difficult than my smaller pieces but still not too bad).
tldr: Huge piece of quality glass that I would recommend to anyone who smokes primarily flower.
