In this read, however, we are going to take a look at the renowned Jane West Steamroller. It’s certainly an attractive piece that has a new take on an industry standard. Large and built for passing, steamrollers are certainly pieces that every smoker should own. However, a well-crafted one is a thing of beauty, so without speaking any further, let us take a look at what this one has to offer, in an aim to help you decide whether it is ideal for you.
- Thick Glass
- Appealing look
- Sturdy legs
- The colored glass makes it difficult to judge hit size.
The Look and Feel
This is one of the best features of any Jane West accessory. The styling is undoubtedly modern, but utilitarian in ways you wouldn’t expect. The symmetry is appealing, but it serves a more significant purpose. The tapered mouthpiece on one end means that the stream of the smoke is easier to handle than some of the large steamrollers you may come across.
The other end has a compacted carb that ascertains greater smoke density. The tube is ideal to fit in any hands, and the legs serve more than one purpose. First, they allow the device to rest without rolling and second, they provide an excellent grip point for loading and passing.
Quality of The Smoke
Steamrollers are usually not a daily session kind of device. Typically, this is a piece you pull out when you have company or a crowd. The Jane West steamroller has a perfect cone bowl that allows for this type of usage. Of course, you can load a huge bowl for a big crowd, but snap bowls are where this device really shines. An excellent cone ascertains that you can light the entire thing and get the vast chunks of smoke that the steamroller was designed to provide.
However, since it features colored glass, a beginner may have a hard time judging the hit size, but then again, it is a steamroller; if you are not choking, you are not trying.
Steamrollers are some of the easiest smoking pieces to clean and maintain. There is not too much to them. This particular one is no exception, and so, if you are feeling lazy, you can just put the entire thing in a bowl of alcohol, and that’s it.
The only thing you need to ensure is that the bowl is affixed to the pipe. Here, cleaning the bowl could prove to be a bit hard, but I highly doubt you are going to have any huge problems.
As you can see, the Jane West Steamroller is one of the best out there, and for the price, you should have no regrets.
