    I like the ease of the silk screen. I couldn't find bubble bags around here anyway. I'd have to order offline and then get it delivered. Being cool isn't my concern, getting caught is.
    Of course, if I were to make hash on a larger scale, I would probably look into the bags for constructive reasons.

    That's what I was thinking. Did you make your own frame for your silk screen?
    I would only be using trim off an lbs every few months or so.

    Okay, then for practical reasons.
    Bubble bags rock for ease of use and efficient trich recovery off the plant material. You can process a good amount of trim relatively quickly.
    If you still have silk screens, go ahead and use them, but when they wear out, do yourself a favor and get a set of bags.

    I ground up my trim into an appropriate size plastic cup(not disposable cups), then wrap the silk screen over the rim, secure it, then tip it upside down and shake(side to side not like a salt shaker) into a 3" deep non-stick 13"*9" pan(one with no blemishes).

    I will get the bags when I want the highest quality for sure stinky. I would rather have the bags believe me. Just that I don't have convenient access yet. When I do, you can expect my rantings on this board to become a little more obscure.

    Its cool stinky, I'm jealous of you, you clearly already have had the 25u.
    But then I just started smoking my own hash so I'm still very content with what I got. I can't stop examining it under my 100* micro.

    Why do bubble bags have 10 bags, why not just 3?

    @ Durban : For different qualities of hash or from a marketing perspective, more money, more replacements they have to buy then... well... you get the idea?

    I personally use a silk screen because I find it easier for the small amount I make but if I was processing on a larger scale (ozs at a time) I would invest in bubble bags.

    I thought bubble bags were basically made with silkscreen-type material. I was planning tentatively on making some bubble bags with silkscreen material. Now I am uncertain. Can this be done? Or do I need to look for a special bubble bag material?

    Durban, some bubble bag sets have 3, some 5, some 7, some 10. Bigger numbers help to get all the trichomes. Of course for each number you will have that many different grades of hash.

    OP= looked into fabbing up bags instead of buying- was going to cost more than the bags, by the time I had somebody do the sewing...

    Sewing silk screen so that it won't tear is a bitch- 5 g of water is heavy...

    We should chat off-board, but I can't rep you w/ an e-mail addy until I " spread some reputation around" - I have further input, on the dl.
    I assume you understand that we have options on your time,

    So the bubble bags come in a 3 set? I don't see the need for more than that, who wants 8 grades of hash? Two seem fine for me...

    8 Grades is easy to deal with, 3 top grades for me and 5 bottom grades for everyone else.

    Thanks for the link.

    Weird, it shows 8 bags, but describes 7...where the heck is the middle black!?
    Bah, forget what I wrote.

    It looks like it would be hard to decide what to get.

    If I remember correctly it was around 90, 110, and 130 micron. Anyone? Is that about right?

    Well I was in the ball park, maybe I was thinking of kief screens.

    8 Bags for the utmost in quality and versatility.
    This kit includes the following bags: 25 micron; 45 micron; 73 micron; 90 micron, 120 micron; 160 micron; 190 micron; and 220 micron; plus a pressing screen and storage pouch.

    and the 4 bag kit:
    This kit contains the following four bags:

    220 micron Work Bag: This bag is used to mix the plant material with water and ice

    160 micron Contaminant Removal Bag: This bag will remove small bits of leaf matter, dust and other contamination from your Bubble. The material captured in this screen can be used for cooking.

    73 micron Crystal Catching Bag: Your best herbal extract will be found in this bag. If your plant matter is of a very high quality, you might even get Full Melt Bubble in this bag.

    25 micron Crystal Catching Bag: For strains with smaller crystals, this bag is the one. This is the smallest pore size on the market and will make sure that absolutely no crystals escape.

    Now if that don't answer your question I don't know what will.

    Yes the good bags are 25 -220 microns and you can get silk screens that are 305 lines an inch, but I am not sure how many microns that is because I am not sure how big the lines are. If the lines are as big as the gaps they would still be .0016 or 1600 microns.

    I know that I have made poor mans keif with just a blender and a gold reusable coffee filter, and hell it got me pretty high. I plan on making some pills with it so it does matter to me if it is graded keif.

    I was looking to get one of these and try it for only $25.
