Upon first glance of the Infyniti website (wholesale) you will immediately ascertain that they specialise in scales, some pretty cool scales at that (interesting artwork). Upon further examination I came across their revolving rotation of products (some rare, licensed items) for an elevated smoking session. They try to touch on all manner of items ranging from glassware to rolling papers and strive to never be viewed as mediocre or overpriced.
I have been steadily increasing my range of glass beakers/bongs from Infyniti, with half a shelf currently dedicated to their designs in store. Infyniti is very popular with my customers who are on a budget. I tend to stock glassware on the slightly pricier side as I believe design and materials used should be of the highest quality and thus accordingly priced. I do strive to cover as many bases as I can as I want to offer products for all my customers regardless of their economic status. These are sturdy glass pieces with intricate designs for those that like to stand out from the crowd.
14” TALL CHROMATIC BEAKER
This is a “beaker” style of water pipe. A beaker is a specific style of water pipe, designed to resemble scientific beakers with a long neck and wide base. Thick glass is almost always used to create stability in a piece so tall and I would be a little wary of a beaker with thin glass.This is a sturdy piece, made with thick 7mm heat-resistant borosilicate glass. Infyniti likes to use a lot of vivid colours in their glass pieces and have covered this glass in a chromatic finish with snowflake decals. Hold this beaker up to the light and a kaleidoscope of colours will appear. Visually kind of spectacular and for this reason I have purposely showcased all the Infyniti glass on a shelf that sits directly under my skylight instore.
TIP: The Beaker style is particularly suited to those that desire large hits or for those that require extra cooling and cleaner smoke for health reasons.
From the bottom up, the water chamber is super roomy enabling you to fill it with a substantial amount of liquid. I tend to recommend never overfilling your glass water pipes and testing (deep inhalations via the mouthpiece) for any splash back before lighting. There is also a minimal fill, whereby the water should at least cover the base of the down stem slits. At the very top is the mouthpiece with a large opening. The glass is rounded off and extremely thick (reinforced) to provide a comfortable landing zone for your lips!
The 14mm down stem is 5.5” in length (almost 14cms) and is removable. Six slits sit horizontally (3 per side) at the base of the down stem providing a diffusion percolation effect. In a nutshell diffusion down stems are simple glass tubes with slits/holes. You smoke will pass down the stem moving towards the slits whereby the smoke is “pushed” down into the water surrounding the stem. Your smoke is then spread throughout the liquid as a multitude of smaller bubbles. Results = cooler, smoother and cleaner smoke. A 14mm flower bowl (male connection) is provided, a fairly decent sized bowl with a collar for easy handling.
TIP: Both the bowl and down stem are frosted for air-tight connection.
3 PRONG ICE PINCH
Lastly, I must touch on this feature, a feature that has helped many of my customers. Helped how? I have a number of medicinal marijuana prescription holders who suffer from lung conditions but want to inhale their herbal medicine for faster results. I always recommend vaping as the “healthiest” option but even this method can be harsh for some. This is where I usually recommend the addition of a water pipe that has an ice pinch and the larger the water pipe the easier the set up. The herbal vaporiser is then attached directly to the water pipe for ultra-cooling of the vapour produced. If this is you then please ensure that there is an appropriate in-between attachment for the particular vape that you are using.
Located right above the water chamber are the 3 prongs (facing internally) that work to substantially narrow the neck enabling you to place chunks of ice within. The addition of ice is not mandatory but a nice perk if you like a truly cold sensation. I recommend not packing with too much ice to allow for free-flowing smoke as you inhale.
