    no more broken lily pipes!

    Tmc dont make the acrylic pipes. I have been phoning them from work since xmas about them. At first they said they were just playing with prototypes later they decided there wasnt really a market for them. Shame as they would of come in a nice case with a special set of cleaning brushes...
