Cool color and convenient size
With a focus on both aesthetics and functionality, the Marley Natural Smoked Glass Bubbler showcases an exquisite blend of sleekness and durability. Its design exhibits a remarkable sense of symmetry and well-balanced proportions, aiming to provide users with an elevated smoking experience. Every aspect of the Bubbler has been meticulously crafted, with attention paid to even the smallest details.
The inclusion of an eight-slit percolator stem ensures enhanced water filtration, resulting in a smoother and more enjoyable smoking session. Additionally, the Bubbler features a practical splash-and-ash catch, effectively preventing any unwanted debris from reaching the user’s mouth. The presence of a generous carb serves a dual purpose, allowing for easy clearing of smoke and convenient filling/draining of water.
When it comes to borosilicate glass, there’s one outstanding feature worth highlighting: its impressive ability to withstand extreme temperature changes without cracking or shattering. This unique characteristic sets it apart from ordinary glass and makes borosilicate the top choice for bowls like these. Its resilience ensures that you can enjoy your smoking sessions without worrying about any unexpected mishaps caused by sudden temperature fluctuations.
The large bowl and spacious chamber of the water pipe effortlessly generates thick and abundant smoke clouds with every inhale. Those who enjoy performing smoke tricks, such as blowing rings, will find great satisfaction in this purchase. Not only does it offer clean and functional performance, but it also delivers powerful hits that are sure to please. One common frustration with certain pieces is having a bowl that is too small, requiring frequent repacking. Fortunately, this piece avoids that problem entirely, making it highly usable and convenient for extended smoking sessions.
With its eight-slit percolator stem, the Bubbler guarantees superior water filtration that enhances the overall smoking experience. The intricate design of the percolator ensures that each hit is smooth and enjoyable, as the smoke passes through the water and is thoroughly filtered. In addition, the Bubbler is equipped with a practical splash-and-ash catch mechanism. This feature effectively prevents any unwanted material or ash from entering the user’s mouth, ensuring a clean and enjoyable smoke every time. Remember to change the water often. Not only is this cleaner, but it tastes better. It also keeps your bubbler from clogging up.
As with all bubblers, maintenance is key to functionality. Because the downstem and the bowl are integrated into the design of the piece and not removable like larger water pipes, they can get clogged when dirty much quicker than the alternative. Cleaning after use mitigates this issue before it occurs. Other than that, it is glass, even though it is boro. Don’t drop it. That’s not so much a drawback as much of a reality for all glass pieces, no matter the thickness.
For the same price customers can also get the K Haring Bubbler. Both are excellent choices and the decision comes down to personal preference on the styling. The Marley Natural line is certainly very modern and clean looking while the K Haring pieces lean towards more whimsical. Either way it is a solid choice and a quality piece.
For those wanting the same overall look of the Marley Natural Smoked Glass Bubbler, but don’t care about water filtration, Marley also offers this same vibe in a spoon. Spoons are undoubtedly easier to clean however the hit is harsher without water.
Fill the bowl with your pre ground material (The Aerospace grinder is perfect for this) and hold your finger over the carb while inhaling. Light the material on fire. Remove your finger from the carb to clear the piece. Make sure to dump your ashes in an ashtray to cool, not a trash can.
Cleaning your pieces is very important. This stems from the fact that build up residues can grow molds, not to mention the fact that it stinks. Cleaning borosilicate is easy. It’s commonly done with household items. The most common method is to use isopropyl alcohol and coarse salt. Fill the piece and shake vigorously to clean the entire piece. Dump it out and make sure to rinse everything thoroughly to avoid baked taste from the alcohol.
Somewhere between a spoon and a waterpipe, the bubbler is a wonderful piece for any glass collection. The cool smoked color and good design of this piece makes it stand out a bit in a pretty crowded space. The Marley Natural line has a great sense of symmetry and well-balanced proportions really add to the appeal. Add to that good function and it’s a simple choice for many consumers.
Of course the Marley Natural Bubbler is made with high-quality boro, so it should be expected to last a lifetime with proper care and cleaning. The major benefit of the piece is enjoying water filtration in a tiny package.
