So for anyone that owns a zob. I was talking with a homie and he was like I heard ZOB is arabis for something, and an arabic guy owns zob. So we got out the dick-tionary. And zob is arabic for knob, cock knob. "You western kids are slobbing on our zob's" and zob is arabic slang for penis. Sooo for all you kids that like smoking your Zob you really just like smokin cock. I dont undersatd why you would name your company penis.... hahaha I'm done... cocksmokers... I can't stop laughing

Zob is arabic slang for "knob" as a reference to one's penis.
It's a joke saying " you western kids are sucking on our 'zob' " that IMHO isnt funny.
( no the owners are not from the US I guess they feel it's funny to insult us like that)_)


Zob did contract the guys that were assembling Lux tubes and decided to slap their name on someone elses product.

so yes quality wise.. it's same as a lux.. but personally I cant support a knock off tube named "cock".

i bought one of the two 8 arm tree beaker zob's from aqualab and i can say i dont enjoy smoking the knob lol. quality is just shitty. set up terribly, joint is junk, downstems junk, bowl is junk, trees work for shit. just picked up a kind creations inline tube tho so im very happy lol. and yes i knew about what the word zob meant before i bought it. i find that the insult lies more in the fact that the owners think thats its ok to sell such low quality glass more then using the slang name for a penis as the name of their company

I would love to know who is actually making the trees for zob, or who they make them for. I hear so many different things about who makes what for who, I feel like I dont really know shit.

My LHS owner is Arabic and sells ZOBs like its his job. He loves them. He has the double halo beakers, all the A/Cs, the Minis, the Rastas, the OGs, tons of them. I havent really been too tempted to buy one other than the Mini, but I cant wait to see what he has to say about this. He has a great sense of humor, and I wouldnt put a joke like that past his knowledge.

Yeah, and I created the internet with Al Gore


ZOB owns sheldon black

There was a rumor on grassshitty that ZOB was buying RooR.us and after that the Sheldon Black thing went down. I'm pretty sure that's where this rumor came from, unless you meant is as ZOB > Sheldon Black




Does your hating have anything to do with Ghost announcing that he's doing colabs with Zob? I only ask because you posted this the say day that he announced it, and you got the quote that you used from the same site


And I've never had a problem with zobs quality, you just need to know what your getting into beforehand

Your original statement makes sense, ja. 'Zob' is also slang for cock in French, I believe, with the phrase "Suce la zob" (or something like that, I failed french 3 years in a row like 6 years ago) meaning "suck my dick."

Either way, I'll stick with Toro, SG, Hops, etc....

zobs suck


probably why you dont see a zob appreciation thread cause who could appreciate a piece of shit?

Superfluous
12-24-2009, 01:36 AM
Or just because not everyone who owns nice glass is a giddy little fanboy seeking attention for their pieces.

I own a two zob pieces, and both are great quality glass.

Has anybody even proposed any reason as to why ZOB glass is sub-par other than the name? I mean how seriously petty can you get?

domm11
12-24-2009, 04:40 PM
its not about attention .. its just about appreciation of nice glass hence the name toro appreciation

and heres why zobs suck in my opinion: i hit a beaker zob with 2 8-arm tree percs as well as a halo ac. it was rather harsh. i hit a toro circ/circ .. i did not even know i was inhaling smoke

granted the toro costs a bit more than that zob but you get what you pay for. and zobs suck.

Yes, I did. Same thing. Friend of mind picked up the zob beaker 8/8 and halo a/c.. It was harsh as fuck and burned my lungs (in fairness this was "compared" to the toro circ/circ I purchased...) I mean they're good but you really notice the poor filtration when you come from hitting a "better" piece

in or around 06 - 07 i can say definitively that zob glass was routinely very thin, especially the beakers towards the bottom. during this time frame i saw two that had broken and inspected the thickness of the glass. it was not uniform throughout, with wide variations and even some parts down to 2-3mm on a 5mm beaker. i cannot say i've had any experience with any recent zob glass, so things may have changed. just my 2cents.

Superfluous start a zob appreciation thread. i'd like to see some good pics and inspect some handiwork. i'd also like to see what zob has been doing recently.

12-25-2009, 07:12 AM
I just went to my local head shop today where zob is one of their main suppliers and the two owners of the shop and zob are close friends.
They had an assortment of 8 arm beakers and straights and double 8's. A few of them even had a little bit of work done on them.

I believe that zob started off as a pretty small cheap company and they have refocused and redesigned their line after gathering a negative rep in the community. I inspected a few of their designs and most were 5 or 7mm and all felt solid with no visible imperfections. They are defininetly upping the quality and function of their line

I'm sorry but you are wrong.
Zob is a large scale glass studio/factory that employs some pretty "cheap" labor to mass produce pieces mostly based off other artists' designs.

All opinions aside, it is what it is. Most people simply don't care enough about the glass scene as a counter-culture and community for it to matter to them who they support.

hellogoodfriend
12-27-2009, 06:16 PM
I guess the guy at the shop was just talking out of his ass then? I've been googling their stuff recently and yeah they are definitely very mass produced but their new stuff is looking way better then their old stuff however its still on the lower side of the glass industry.

do you have any specific examples of them stealing designs? it would be interesting to learn more about it

i dunno here this whole "penis" thing is really stupid and i understand not going near the company last year but they really have stepped there game up now since theve been outsourced to the USA
IMHO if you dont wanna spend your whole paycheck on a toro and you want something pratical with percs and shit then zobs the way to go
My boy picked up a double halo and a mini 8 arm ashcastcher and its a VERY smooth hitting tube joints are spot on angles are great and the halos are perfect.....This was an industry first for them and i dont think it failed as much as other people are explaining it

you get what you pay for. that holds true for anything. including glass.

unless you goto a yankee's game. then you get what you pay for, as well as getting fucked in the ass. i mean shit 10 dollars for a god damn cheeseburger. i gotta bring the lube next time i go there to ease the pain.

I highly dont agree at all. I used it with a SGW showerhead diffy and as you can see with my previous argument. IF bore size was increases slightly i feel you would get a much better flow and perculation to your hit. IMHO
Not bad as is.....but you can always cut, break down, enlarge, and blow out to improve on the functionality of any tube or peice
