I can’t say enough good things about the Silver Surfer Vaporizer. Clean, sleek, streamlined, efficient… the adjectives I could use would fill this entire review. So, instead I’ll stick to the actual facts so you can see for yourself why I’m digging this unit.
First, each and every Silver Surfer is unique. The heat covers and glass temp knobs are handcrafted from marbles, so your unit will most definitely look different than mines. What they will have in common is the rock solid anodized aluminum, ceramic heater and acrylic base. You have the choice of yellow, green, blue, red or purple for the standing base, with the actual vaporizer being a sleek “indestructible” aluminum.
All of the glass on the unit is borosilicate, considered to be the strongest glass in the world. And the design is modernistic; it’s not ugly like some other vaporizers you can find on the market.
The unit only takes about 2 minutes to heat to 365° F (ideal vaporizing temperature). This gets you toking much quicker than slower units that take all day to warm up.
The vapor you get is thick and this vaporizer hits hard! This makes it perfect for the regular smoker who doesn’t want to wait all day to feel the bud. You can adjust the temperature using the temp knob, so you have a firm grip on the thickness of the vapor.
One downside is the fact that you have to hold the wand (which has the bud) to the heating unit while your vaping. This can be inconvenient; who wants to use a vaporizer that acts like a bong? There is an accessory that holds the wand to the heater for you, making the unit hands free. But my personal opinion says this should be an included feature instead of an add-on.
All in all, the Silver Surfer Vaporizer is a great option for those that want a feature rich vaporizer. The thing will last forever and, with replacement parts available online, you’re covered in the event that the improbable happens. At the price point, the Silver Surfer is tough to beat and is worth checking out.
