Case: Headdies Glass Steamroller (ancillary)
File Date: 05/14/2017
Case No: 0113
Over the years, I’ve confiscated endless paraphernalia from you stoners. Here’s a modern take on the classic steamroller pipe.
Type: Glass Steamroller Pipe
Manufactured By: Headdies©®
Forms of Cannabis it Accepts: Dry, ground cannabis only
Retail Price: $30.00, plus tax
Retailer Where I Purchased Product: Seven Point Dispensary
-Steamroller design, which has an end carb, instead of a side carb
-Modern design on the classic
-Thick, high quality glass
-Flat part included on glass tube to prevent rolling when placed on a flat surface
-Mfr offers different colored logos, including a glow-in-the-dark logo
Size: 6"/15.5cm Length 1.25"/3.3cm Diameter
Offers outstanding, milky hits.
Maintenance: Regularly clean in the same way you clean any glass paraphernalia. I recommend 90% Isopropyl Alcohol and table salt.
The Pros: Fair price point, solid construction, modern & thoughtful design.
The Cons: The flat part of the steamroller tube is a great feature, but it’s positioned off-center a little so that when you place the steamroller on a flat surface, the location of the bowl chamber tilts off to one side instead of on the top side of the tube. Weed can fall out of the bowl chamber if not packed enough. Also, the hole in the bottom of the bowl is not quite large enough for my liking, which prevents me from getting full hits.
High quality and a modern design make this an excellent piece. However, the downsides are not insignificant and hinder performance.
This steamroller is perfect if you’re on a budget. When I confiscate it, you won’t be out too much money.
And remember, the next time you turn around, turn around again ...'cause I’ll be there.
