The Silver Surfer Vaporizer from 7th Floor is probably the most aesthetically pleasing vaporizer on the market. It is known to many as being as much of a work of art as it is a vaporizer. The Silver Surfer is a wand style vaporizer which has many pros to it as well as a few cons, but in making your decision on any vaporizer, it all comes down to what meets your specific, personal needs. The main difference between this and most other vaporizers is that the Silver Surfer has a ceramic heating element that is engineered to last longer and heat faster. This also means that this machine is very clean; the air passing through the Silver Surfer only comes in contact with glass and ceramic. This adds to the overall healthy factor of this concept. The wand style of this vaporizer also offers a water filled mouthpiece which cools and moistens the herb, which in turn makes the process even healthier. The wand is very important to the identity of this vaporizer. The Silver Surfer is the only vaporizer to have the heater cover tube pointing downward which allows you to point the wand upward and prevents you from losing herb in the process. This wand can also be used hands free, which makes the process even easier and enjoyable.
The base and body of the Silver Surfer is something to definitely take notice of. It is made in the USA with acrylic and aluminum. The aluminum is 1/5″ thick and anodized which gives it a lovely finish and guarantees it never to break. The other artistic quality about this device is that no two models are exactly the same. The temperature knobs and heating covers are each handcrafted from marble which makes each individual unit a one of a king item.
The performance of this vaporizer is absolutely superb. The Silver Surfer has a very fast heat up time and is very efficient in its work. Not only is it efficient, but it is also very effective. The Silver Surfer gives off very potent hits with very little use of herb. This leads to less waste and allows you to preserve your herb and save money. This vaporizer is also considerably more affordable than other vaporizers on the market, such as the Volcano Digit from Storz & Bickel.
The heating unit of the Silver Surfer is also special in that it can also be used to diffuse essential oils on top of the unit, adding even more pleasure to the vaporizer experience. But, perhaps the most impressive feature of this product is that it is the vaporizer of choice for Legendary Country artist, Willie Nelson. He claims that since he started vaporizing rather than smoking, his lungs feel noticeably better and he can also sing much better; Willie even has his own signature model vaporizer.
One of the main downfalls of this vaporizer is that it is perhaps designed a little too much with looks in mind, and not as much functionality. The marble, custom made temperature knobs look great and add a bit of personality to the machine, but they are not marked to note specific temperature settings; you have to use the machine in order to gauge the knob positioning best fit for your liking. After using the Silver Surfer a few times, it shouldn’t be much of a problem. You just learn as you go. This vaporizer is not portable either, you must stay around the machine to enjoy the vapor, but the sleekness and design of this vaporizer is a fair trade off.
