Stoner MacGyver marijuana product review: Incredibowl m420 mini and attachment
Now and then, companies send us medical marijuana-related products ranging from vaporizers to board games. We showcase them in our quasi-regular product review section, Stoner MacGyver.
The latest? Incredibowl m420 (mini) and attachments.
What is it, dude? The miniature version of the Incredibowl i420 and various pipe bodies. It's basically the Transformers of pipes without the laser-beam sound effects.
How much coin will it run me? The base Incredibowl m420 will run you somewhere in the range of $50 to $60. The quick-pull trigger will run you $20, glass replacement tubes sell for $30, extension straight tubes are around $27, bubblers $80 and the Sherlock for $60.
I know I'm not the only one who -- in a strange way -- fondly remembers the Fimo-wrapped aluminum pipes that screwed together and created "marinating chambers" that you could stick a bud in to get coated in resin over time. As bunk as they are in retrospect, those metal pipes were cool as hell, because you could Lego yourself a unique Sherlock or a super-long pipe or a super small one-hitter just by adding or removing parts. Looking back, it's easy to see that pipes were awful because they were made entirely of metal. But the interchangeable nature of them? That was some rad stuff.
I hadn't really though much on those old pipes in recent years -- at least not until the Stoner MacGyvers at the Incredibowl factory in Boulder put together a package of interchangeable parts for the miniature version of their original i420 pipe (which we reviewed a few weeks back).
The m420 itself is the spring-loaded gold-and-black piece pictured above that can be moved around onto the different pipe bodies Incredibowl produces. It works the same as the i420, with a spring-loaded carb that jet-blasts clean air through the pipe, only it's about one-quarter the size of the original. Fitted in the stock four-inch, high-quality plastic tube, it's about as portable as a standard spoon pipe and way more durable.
It has to be said that for all the money you'd spend on the following attachments, you could get separate blown glass pipes to accomplish the same thing. There's not really any argument to that. But if you're a fan of the spring-loaded Incredibowl design, these attachments are worth considering.
For this week's Completely Unscientific test, we ground up a few grams of herb and packed bowl after bowl in the m420 to find out the differences and highlights of each different variation.
