I have no idea what to really call it but it's basically a 22 gauge hypodermic needle inserted into the gas hole so that I can get a nice small flame also giving distance between my hand and the foil it helps you keep the flame where your meth
puddle is. Keep in mind you will need a second lighter or candle to ignite the needle chimney.
If one doesn't have a hypodermic needle one can make one by rolling a rectangular piece of foil about half an in by Inch or so around the plastic inner tube of a pen then like a joint roll and pull into a needle funnel thin enough to fit.
Manila meth culture is very different compared to the states. Almost everyone that smokes does it this way. No more less efficient then a pookie if done right and ppl around here make the most of what they can buy. I've seen 3 ppl get super spun off like .2 nothing is wasted and time is taken to prepare all paraphernalia.
Imagine making first a perfect foil runway, then a foil straw, and the foil needle. One lighter to light, one as a burner. It is very meticulous at first and frustrating for some but in my opinion more satisfying then just dropping shards ina glass bowl and using a bic lighter.
Something about chasing the white dragon up and down the aluminum slide for me is a diff ROA In itself haha
To stay on topic around here such signs as foil folding in on itself after ice cracks back is a good sign you got some uncut shit. And the crackling sound resonates off the foil, the higher pitch the snap and crack
the better it is.
