Hell’s Bells Beaker Review: Breakdown

Quality

Build Quality

Build Quality

The Hell’s Bells Beaker is made of high-quality glass. It’s thick, heavy, and well weighted. The most important feature is also the most distinctive: a bright green claw which also doubles as a handle. This is the most important selling point as far as I’m concerned.

I have seen many a party ruined by a dropped water pipe, yet somehow the idea of a built-in handle has never occurred to me. It is truly brilliant and makes this piece eye worth every penny. It sits solidly in your hand, and the glass is far thicker than I expected.

Even your clumsiest friend can hold onto this piece in a crowd. This heavy-duty tower will outlast water pipes costing twice as much.

Smoke Quality

Smoke Quality

The smoke quality of this water pipe leaves a lot to be desired. There isn’t much space for ice, so you’re taking hot hits 100% of the time that the piece is in use. The immediately means that you’re dealing with a reduction in flavor perception.

Many smokers relish the particular taste and smells of their herb, so this is going to be an immediate non-starter for some. The tube also lacks any sort of filtration or diffusion. This means you’re going to miss some of the favors in your higher end strains. This lack of filtration also means that you’re dealing with much harsher smoke.

Lovers of huge, milky hits and big, thick, clouds will find themselves choking red-faced on the floor. This piece offers you no assistance. If you do not possess lungs of steel, you will simply have to take small hits. If don’t know if you have lungs of steel, you can hit this piece to find out!

Design

look-and-feel

Look and Feel

This is an attractive water pipe for those who like simplicity without the sterility of scientific-styled glass. This piece is rather whimsical. My friends were all thrilled when they saw it, particularly when they realized that the large horn was a functional handle.

If you’re looking for a standout piece in this price range, it’s hard to beat this incredibly functional little water pipe. The bowl is perfectly sized for large groups of people, but it’s got steeply angled sided, meaning that it’s also perfect for quick personal snaps.

The bowl has an attractive green handle which also functions as a roll stop. This compact piece combines simple details with impressive functionality to make a piece which functions wonderfully as a daily driver for an individual or a household.

Ease of Maintenance

Ease of Maintenance

This is a fairly easy piece to maintain, as all tube water pipes are. The Hell’s Bells beaker can easily be cleaned with the assorted foaming commercial water pipe cleaners available for sale. If you’d rather keep things natural, a mix of isopropyl alcohol (or white vinegar) and coarse sea salt can be shaken in the tube until it’s clean.

The bowl is simple with no perforations or attachments. It is easily cleaned, and unlikely to break during cleaning. The fittings are glass on glass, and the water pipe does not come with k-clips. You’ll want to purchase them right away because ground glass will always stick, it’s just a matter of time.

My only genuine point of concern is the downstem, which is of a much thinner glass than any of the other components. Plan to replace it, as it will break quickly.

Conclusion

This is a very stripped-down water pipe. There is no filtration. There is no real diffusion. There is no inch pinch. There are no bells and whistles to explain to houseguests. There are no complicated parts to clean, or to break and replace. Instead, this is a very simple piece custom-built for sharing. Parties. Camping. Festivals. This thick and sturdy piece can take a couple knocks without being any worse for the wear.

The joints on the Hell’s Bels are reinforced to make sure that jolts and bumps are no big deal. It’s easily to pack and doesn’t require any sort of complex care or specialty case. And if one of your friends should happen to break this incredibly solid piece… Buy another. They’re 40 bucks.
