“ Why is it that the joint size says 14.5mm female and the recommended downstem replacement is 18mm to 14.5 female, shouldn't it have a 14.5mm male part? Also, it says it includes a 3.5in downstem but I measured mine (only the clear part, not the frosted part) and it's exactly 4inches. ”

This is a really good question! The joint size mentioned (14.5mm female) refers to the joint of the set-up rather than the piece itself. So due to the downstem, it works with a 14.5mm male attachment. The "female downstem" refers to the joint of the end, which means that it needs a 14.5mm Male attachment (such as a bowl). There are some downstems that keep the same gender (Female pipe and Female Bowl would work with a Female-to-Female downstem) but those are not that common, such as in this case where the downstem takes the joint of the pipe. (So this female pipe takes a male bowl with the downstem that we send along) You are also correct regarding the downstem length, we recommend the 4 inch variant. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to get in touch at and we'll be happy to help right away.
