The quality and taste is superb but while many would dislike the idea of a dab hit without water, the Proxy is actually surprisingly smooth on the throat and compared to the big brother “The Peak Pro” then you can expect a much gentler hit the Puffco Proxy.

How to clean the Proxy pipe?
Clean your proxy regularly to maintain an optimal experience. Be sure that the device is cooled down before disassembling and cleaning. Do not handle the base chamber or glass while hot.
For a light cleaning, use a cotton swab dipped in 90 isopropyl alcohol to remove any residue as needed. Gently cleaning the gold contact points between the chamber and base will also help avoid potential connection issues. To remove the tether, gently pull back to dislodge the jacket from the housing rib of the chamber. Pull back from the other ribs until the jacket comes off completely . For a deep cleaning, fully submerge the chamber and 90 isopropyl alcohol for 20 to 30 minutes. Remember, do not handle or clean the chamber while still hot. The tether and carb cap can also be soaked for a deep cleaning, be mindful that isopropyl alcohol often causes silicone to expand but not to worry, it will shrink back to a perfect fit. After soaking, allow the chamber to fully dry before use since isopropyl alcohol is highly flammable. To reattach the tether, align one of the open slots on the underside with the chamber's housing rib and push down until fully seated. When reinserting align the three prongs on the chamber with the base, do not force the chamber this can cause irreversible damage.
Remove the glass and chamber, gently clean the gold contact points and air path of the base using a cotton swab dipped in isopropyl alcohol. Do not flood or soak the base and keep the usb port dry and free of alcohol water or dust. Make sure that the base is completely seated inside the glass attachment when reinstalling for optimal sealing.
Carefully remove the glass from the base and submerge the glass in isopropyl alcohol. Avoid using any other cleaning solutions or abrasive materials to clean the glass, soaking will be sufficient After soaking, rinse clean with water, make sure it's thoroughly rinsed prior to use. Allow glass to fully dry before reattaching to the base be careful not to slide the glass to avoid scratching, use our proxy travel pack for support.
