Is the product of countless hours of design, testing, research and development. It claimed 3rd Place in the Best Glass Category in the recent 2009 High Times Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam, losing out to the 6ft tall Roor Excalibur bong commissioned by Cypress Hill, and took 2nd Place in the Best New product category. It claims to be one of the best tools on the market for Medical Marijuana Patients.
Featuring a polycarbonate (of the same material shatterproof and bulletproof windows are made of) bowl so you only taste what you are smoking rather what you are smoking out of, the creators of the Incredibowl smoking pipe designed BowlArmor TM technology so it could withstand a serious impact. Also made with 6061 aluminum and state-of-the-art computer aided design, the Incredibowl bong designers perfected the airflow with the Annular Purge Carb TM and the Smoke Injection Nozzle. For the Expansion Chamber - the clear tube through which you inhale the smoke - Incredibowl Industries utilized shatterproof polycarbonate which is also used in bullet proof windows.
The Physics of the Incredibowl:
You create suction, and light your smoking material in the glass bowl, drawing the smoke into the brass Smoke-Injection Nozzle.
The Nozzle acts as a heat sink while the hot smoke pools inside it, then the cooled smoke passes across the even cooler fine-mesh stainless-steel screen. Unlike pieces with metal screens near the heat, the tars in the smoke are cooled and have condensed by the time they pass through the screen, making them thicker, stickier, and easier for the screen to catch. The cooled, filtered smoke expands into the Expansion Chamber. When gases expand, they increase in volume, decrease in density, and lose energy in the form of heat in the process. Other pieces leave much of this cooling, filtering, and expansion to occur in your throat and lungs, resulting in harshness and lost flavor.
When you create suction, you’re creating a difference in pressure between the Expansion Chamber and the atmosphere outside the chamber (which your suction doesn’t affect). When you pull the carb, the pressure inside the chamber has to become equal to the pressure outside, which forces air through the carb holes. The geometric arrangement of the holes causes the air to rush into the chamber as a symmetrical system of air jets that displaces the smoke quickly and smoothly into your lungs.
Other vaporizers and steamrollers let the air coming through the carb mix with the smoke because of turbulence, actually increasing the amount you have to inhale, and still make you create suction to inhale the mixture. Waterpipes make your lungs work even harder, because the water acts as a pressure lock that prevents the carb air from flowing any more than can fit in each bubble. The Incredibowl’s carb uses the suction you’ve already created to blast large or small volumes of cooled, filtered, flavorful smoke into your lungs.
