8 INCHES LONG
This pipe arrives in a standard brown box, Amazon-style. There aren't any markings to let your neighbors know what's up until it's open. Inside is a GRAV branded box, with an incredible Helix pipe carefully bubblewrapped.
Pro Tip: if you're looking for an unboxing with a bit more flash to it, try the POUNDS lineup.
IN YOUR HAND
Instant quality. Right away you can appreciate that this is real scientific glass. It has a solid in-hand feel: thick and sturdy. The Helix Classic's weight and size perfectly balance durability with maneuverability.
The contours of the Venturi Chamber shape add an ergonomic touch. You may not realize just how much ergonomics matter on a hand pipe until you hold one of these.
Manueverability is also enhanced by top carb placement. (Great left-handed pipe option!) Instead of using your thumb to control airflow from the side, an index finger falls into place like a steamroller. It's pretty nice to give the thumbs some relief after a long day of smartphone-ing.
The oblong mouthpiece is a good, natural size that anyone you pass it to can enjoy. Thick glass gives it an excellent feel.
GRAV's Helix Classic is one hard-hitting hand pipe. A Venturi Chamber shape is enhanced with three micro-holes you can just make out with the eye. This feature creates an incredible tornado spiral as goodness swirls from spoon to mouthpiece! The carb helps keep it cool and powerful so you can really rip some massive clouds (if that's what you're into).

For starters, watching this is mesmerizing, it captivates you! The hit is extremely smooth. Fits in hand perfect, carb in a great spot. Helix chamber is a little larger than we anticipated. Overall we are pretty satisfied with this piece.
The best pipe I have ever smoked out of!
The Helix is a great piece that delivers as advertised. Shipping was quick and the site was easy to use. I will definitely order from Dope Boo again!
I really adore my new Helix pipe. It's a cross between a steamroller and a pipe really and delivers huge hits. It's also fun to see the tornado effect. A+++
At 8", this is not a small pipe. It's beautiful and hits great, but maybe a smaller version would be more portable.
