GRAV Helix Spoon Pipe: It Will Take You for A Spin

When you think about glass innovations, GRAV is always one of the brands that will pop into your head. Aside from the GRAV Sip Series bubbler, they also created several Helix lines for bongs, chillums, steamrollers, and even spoons. Let’s have a look at the GRAV Helix Spoon Pipe and see what makes it different from a traditional bowl.

The GRAV Helix Spoon Pipe

This spoon pipe is unlike any other spoon that you’ve had. One look at it and you know that it’s going to give you a different kind of experience when it comes to smoking your herb. Designed by Will Menzies, the GRAV Helix Spoon Pipe is a combination of ergonomics, style, and functionality. There are several ways that this spoon defied tradition.

The bowl of the spoon pipe points towards the carb hole.

When standard push bowls in spoons go straight down in the center, this one has an angled bowl. The base of it points towards the tip where you’ll see the carb hole. With a flat base and two “feet” at the bottom, your spoon is going to stay put on the table.

The star of the show is the Venturi chamber where all the magic and action happens. The conical chamber has micro air vents angled in the direction of the inner wall. It narrows to an apex before flaring to a flared bubble mouthpiece that fits comfortably in your mouth.

The colored Helix logo gives it a classy, sophisticated look. The GRAV Helix Spoon Pipe that we have comes in 6”, although there are some that are slightly smaller and bigger. Still, it’s a highly portable hand pipe that you can carry anywhere. Made with thick boro glass, this is one innovation that will proudly give you multiple sessions that you’re going to look forward to.

How does it work?

The Venturi chamber of the Helix spoon allows you to filter and lighten smoke without the need for water. As you pull from the pipe, smoke and air mix in a spinning motion like a tornado. Because of the multiple air vents, you’ll see a beautiful spinning Helix pattern going inside. Filtration happens as a result, with combusted debris pushed to the inner walls of the chamber. Smoke also becomes almost as light as air, making it cooler, smoother, and easier to absorb.

How do you use the GRAV Helix Spoon Pipe?

It’s a Helix tornado that you’ve got to experience.

Using it is almost the same as a spoon pipe, with a bit of technique added at the end.

  1. Grind your herb to a medium-coarse grind.
  2. Pack the bowl firmly but not too tightly that it will block the airflow
  3. Hold the pipe with your non-dominant hand and use your pointing finger to cover the carb hole.
  4. Pull through the mouthpiece with medium to medium-light pressure.
  5. Light the bowl and adjust your draw. If the smoke is too light, tighten your draw. If you see too much smoke with no helix pattern, lighten the pressure.
  6. Regulate the smoke tapping on the carb hole.
  7. Pull until you get the smoke that you want, then release the spoon pipe.
  8. Keep the smoke in for 2-3 seconds, then exhale.

The smoking experience

The hits from the GRAV Helix Spoon Pipe is almost similar to that of a bong, only with more flavor and punch. The more the smoke spins around, the cooler, and cleaner the smoke gets. This hand pipe is a great alternative for smokers who are on the go and prefer dry hits over water pipes.

There’s a bit of a learning curve to it to get the Helix action going. You have to pull using the right pressure for you to appreciate how the Venturi chamber works. The pipe will just be a regular pipe if you don’t use it correctly.

However, once you got the right pressure and memorized just how exactly to draw from the pipe? You’ll be getting the same satisfying experience that everyone with the Helix pipe appreciates. You get serious hits you can only get from a helix. The hits are smooth despite the weird appearance, and some say it functions almost as good or even better than a bong.

If you think smooth hits are impossible to get with a dry pipe, you should try out this one. It’s fun to use, and the visual display is more than just for show. Click here now and GRAV yours today!
