If you know Higher Standards you know they do nothing by halves. Higher Standards was created to provide aficionados with the tools they need for the most elevated smoking experience. On all levels Higher Standards knows how to create lust-worthy products, from their simple yet cool packaging all the way through to premium function and design. Each and every one of their products are worthy of display in your home. The Beaker was the first Higher Standards product I ever encountered, and I have been selling them steadily since. My Higher Standards range is ever growing, and I will happily stock anything they make.
TIP: Higher Standards products are all made in the USA.
The Heavy-Duty Beaker is the first ever product that I sourced from the fine folks at Higher Standards. I instantly knew I wanted to showcase the brand in store, and I have displayed it proudly ever since. My range has grown since those first days and I still love all that Higher Standards does. The Beaker is a fairly classic design, quite tall, very thick with a wide (flared) mouthpiece and has been crafted with maximum water filtration and flavour in mind.
TIP: The Beaker measures in at 14 inches or for all you Australians 35.5 cms tall!
Each piece that Higher Standards crafts is made from super tough, medical grade 6mm thick borosilicate glass. The base is wide for added stability, which I think is fairly important in a taller device. As this is a “beaker style” water pipe there is quite a wide and roomy water chamber along with a long neck. These 2 features enable one to take some rather large hits if that is how one likes to do things! I tend to also recommend larger sized beakers to my customers that require extra levels of comfort. Most beakers also incorporate an ice pinch feature into their design. An ice pinch is a drastic narrowing found at the base of the neck. In this particular one there is a 3 prong ice pinch and an ice mold is provided. The premise is simple, fill the mold with water and freeze it. You are creating a column of ice that you can slip directly into the neck of the beaker. Your smoke is then super cooled with each inhalation providing a cleaner, smoother and flavour rich experience. If you have not tried a water pipe with ice added I highly recommend that you do as the experience is very different.
Both the down stem and the 14mm flower bowl are detachable from the Beaker and from each other. The bowl provided is a martini-style 14mm male connection. The down stem is quite long, measuring in at 16cms with 6 slits at the end (3 on each side). Engineered for optimal moisture conditioning, the Heavy-Duty Beaker places an innovative spin on the traditional diffuser. Extra-thin slits on the down stem generate finer bubbles, maximizing contact between smoke and moisture for a smoother draw.
TIP: Higher Standards have crafted the Heavy-Duty Beaker to be as airtight as humanly possible to ensure the most thorough and intense filtration with the least effort that they can provide.
Lastly but definitely not least I present to you the premium Collectors Case and please don’t imagine just any old box. Higher Standards likes to provide reusable foam lined cases for all their glass enabling you to keep your glass safe or to travel in style. All parts are allocated their own encased area and a sturdy handle is provided. This is a Beaker crafted for connoisseurs by connoisseurs with all bases covered providing a seamless, clean and pure smoking experience.
