**Final Update 5/29**
So this will be the final update as i have given this thing a run for its money. I honestly have to say that i will no long pick up my GravLabs steamroller. There is no point, the glass blunts have found their way back into the case and will remain cold for a long time.
The way that this thing hits is nothing like any pipe that i have used to this day. every draw on the pipe is cool smoke, there is no heat, there is no burn, and there is no cough. I tried to hit thing thing hard and the cough never came. The nice thing is that you can put it away right after you use it, If there is still a little lit in the bowl, simply add the slider and tuck it away.
Cleaning is a breeze on this thing too. I wanted to wait a few days, clog the screen, gum up the insides and see what it took to clean the thing up. I took a rag with some 90% iso and was able to WIPE the pipe clean. No need to scrup, no need to soak and break anything up. The only thing that was tough to clean was the screen and all it really needed was a good soak and then hit with some water to clean it up.
Visually this pipe had me when i saw it. It was nothing like anything i had seen before and that alone made me want one. Then i got the tester in my hands and it was more than i expected as far as functionality as well as holding to its claims. It's cool, it's sleek and the damn thing is pure sexy.
One pleased guy over here.
as i promised i will progressively update this post, I want this to be an experience.as this is a new product to me and I figure the best way to share is real time.
Im starting to see the role of the slider more. Great to hold stuff where it is if you are on the go. Can open a quick tap to get what you need and seal it up. If your home the slider can go and the experience changes a bit. I didn't think that it could have a better flow than it already did but tonight's run was to say the least, unique in its own right..
Smooth mellow draw from the pipe, cool smoke enters the lungs and there isn't a single hint of a cough....

- Great design, slim and light weight.
large bowl, all aluminum construction will make it easy to clean
After a few sessions the pipe was still cool
Easy, free flow design for the draw
Hits like a glass blunt on steroids.
The dimple design on the inside brought the first hit through like a freight train. I don't quite know how to explain how it hit other than there was zero resistance. Flowed from the bowl to the mouth with zero effort. I dont see this thing clogging like a typical pipe.
After a few hits i wanted to see how the guts looked and the design does hold true to the claims. The dimples were catching the resin as the smoke progressed back towards the mouth piece. I can see a quick soak in alcohol cleaning this thing up in a snap.
- Negatives About This Product:
- So far only thing that i have seen is uneven burn if the slider is used. It will burn from the center have to remove it to stir. This could be technique as this is still new to me. Also once you start to use it with the slider on i noticed that the resin buildup can make it a bit harder to slide off without opening the pipe. I dont see this really as a draw back or negative as we all know resin gets sticky and no matter what the material its gonna get a little tacky.
