Silver Surfer Vaporizer
How it Works
The Silver Surfer is a whip style vaporizer, with no other options. It has just one control: the temperature knob in the front. It’s very easy to use, but you can’t be sure of what setting you’re at. After heating the vaporizer up to full strength, you adjust the dial to the general temperature you want and take draws through the whip.
Manufacturing quality is definitely one area where this vape excels. It’s made of durable metal and feels pretty sturdy. 7th Floor gives it a 3 year warranty. The style is well known and simple but effective, and you can get custom hand blown glass parts from the manufacturer, which is pretty cool. The materials are all high quality and it definitely seems solid. It also comes with its own padded carrying case, which looks awesome.
The Silver Surfer has a ceramic heater and all glass parts, which definitely makes for great vapor quality. It generally produces good, strong, fairly dense vapor. This depends of course on the temperature setting, which is hard to be precise with. You can change the density of your vapor roughly by turning the dial, but you can’t always duplicate the setting you used last
Now if you’re looking to get the best vaporization experience possible with the Silver Surfer we’d like to recommend pairing your unit with the new vapor cooling device from ZEUSArsenal, the ZEUS Iceborn. This revolutionary device actually increases the vapor quality of your Silver Surfer by 2 points, dramatically cooling it down for smooth frosty draws. It’s also much more efficient than other filtration devices that use water, so you can get even bigger vapor clouds! Take a look!
Ease of Use
The Silver Surfer takes about three minutes to heat up to your preferred temperature, which is pretty fast. It’s very easy to use the basic controls and it’s so simple that there aren’t many ways it can go wrong. Generally the only flaws are little ones, for example, the tubing tends to disconnect from the wand pretty easily, and the glass parts, of course, are breakable.
The only clear issue is the reach. This isn’t really a unit for more than two people to use at once. Mostly that’s an inherent problem for whip style units, but the placement of the whip on the Silver Surfer makes it worse.
This vaporizer apparently has a very large range of temperaturesettings, from almost no heat at all to a top setting that’s actually a little too hot for vaporizing. However, there aren’t any numbers or temperatures on the dial. You can’t be sure you’re getting the same temperature each time. The temperature also varies slightly depending on the strength of your draws. While there are lots of temperatures to choose from, you really can’t be certain of temperature consistency with this system.
So this sounds like a pretty great vape. The problem is, there’s almost nothing differentiating it from the Da Buddha, made by the same company. They’re both strictly whip style units. They have the same mechanism and the same controls. The materials, manufacturing quality, and vapor quality are similar. They even look about the same. The only difference is the price: $100 more. The Silver Surfer doesn’t give you more vaporization options or any big improvement, so the extra $100 is pretty much just for the name value. The operation is really too basic to justify the price on this one.
Thanks for reading and as always, keep vapin’! 😉
