    I was wondering what is the weight of a "bag" of H. and i always thought a bundle was ten "bags", but heroin helper dotcom glossary defines it as 20.

    How much do the bags swiy buy weigh?

    and a finger is 5 grams, a stick 10 grams, right?

    Never heard of a finger or a 'stick' Probably local slang no-one will know what SWIY are talking about. In the UK it is not weighed in grams it is weighed in teenths 1.75gms.

    Then it goes up to an eighth (twice a teenth), a quarter, a half ounce and an ounce.

    Bags can vary between 0.1 to 0.2 if very lucky but this also depends as well as different areas sell at different lower prices

    In the UK, it's 0.2 grams and that includes the weight of the bag usually.

    for swim a bag is .1g a bundle is 10 bags roughly 1g. A "sleeve" probably local slang is 10 bundles or 100 bags roughly 10g.

    In Chicago, a good bag is .2-.3 grams. 10 bags is a "jab," but when you buy a jab they will throw you a extra one (or a couple) if you are a regular customer.

    In swims place UK but not main land there is hardly anything in a bag its a lot less then 0.1 grams. Swim knows how much 0.1 and 0.2 bags look like and whats over here is a lot less !!! And the price is more then UK mainland....

    And its harder to get, but not imposible... If someone gets caught with any amount of class A then he will go to prison.

    The stuff that SWIM bought yesterday came in pill-shaped bits of cling film rather than the normal pieces of plastic bag with tied ends... And he got as fucking SHITLOAD less than usual. Was. Not. Happy.

    In response to one of the OP's questions, a bundle is indeed ten bags.

    In SWIMS experience Bundles are East Coast US form of selling of H4 gear, where it is usually .1 gram in a bag and a bundle is ten of those, usually with a discount. Uk is .1 - .2 grams per bag as said above but varies greatly. West Coast Us gear is supposed to be either .2's or .5 or 1.0 the .2 is the lowest amount you would usually get and is about the equivalent as to what you would get .1 on the east coast but could vary and you might get a quarter gram. I havent mentioned price here, so hope that SWIMs post and this thread is not breaking any rules?!

    Swim tells me these are some typical UK weights and deals that he used to get on the streets, these are what they are supposed to weigh but are usually under weight.

    Bag/Bagel = 0.17g (0.1-0.2)
    Q =0.4g (The idea is one gets slightly more than 2 bags)
    Half Gram =0.5g
    Half Teenth =0.85g
    Gram =1g
    Teenth =1.75g
    Henry =3.5g
    Quarter =7g
    Half ounce =14g

    He those were the days Lol

    Thanks. Yeah, must have been local slang on stick & finger. SWIM is from Boston area. It just caught me by surprise when heroinhelper said a bundle was 20 bags.

    Pretty interesting slang tho, i have never heard of a "henry" or a few other of those.

    Monkey is also vaguely from the Boston area. Price discussion is forbidden but Monkey didnt see any prohibition on weights and measures talk.....
    HERE
    a "bag"=.1-.2 g, usually cut to shit and not worth it.
    a bundle = 10 of above bags, at a discount
    a gram=a gram
    a finger=5 grams
    Commonly the quality dealers around here offer 1/2 grams of fairly pure scag for a reasonable price. the above is when dealing with street idiots, although anyone trying to buy quantity on the street is asking to get their money taken. Sad to say, dope is the most ruthless of all the games.
    To paraphrase Burroughs "Junk is the perfect product, the user will crawl through a sewer and beg to buy"
    Speaking of which, the Monkey needs to go massage his back now.

    wow in oz most heavily addicted swimmers never bothered with the little bags. they are called "caps".

    instead people buy 0.25g (this would have only just been worth it for someone on methadone or bupe), 0.5g and upwards... it didnt come in lots of little bags or "bundles".

    to buy in caps would have resulted in a massive money loss! much cheaper to buy halfweights and upwards.
