There are scant few things in the head shop world that have caused more headaches than the matching of downstem sizes. What an infinitely tedious undertaking. Is it a 12mm? Or is it a 14mm? Or maybe it’s 16mm but you have a 14mm double-sided adapter to retrofit your recycler on a tube originally intended for flower. But is that inside or outside diameter?
If that sounded like gibberish more than accurate tech specs, good catch; that was the intention. Point is, it’s been the source of more than a few customer meltdowns. Not to mention, it creates a hell of a lot of shelf clutter when you need a million different sizes to ensure accommodation of everyone.
The good news is White Rhino has developed a solution – and it’s inventive AF. Billed as “the last downstem you’ll ever need,” White Rhino’s new Adjustable Downstem is a series of interchangeable silicon parts that can be reconfigured to fit almost any water pipe size specifications. Each unit comes with a 14mm adapter, a 19mm adapter, four connecting pieces of varying lengths, and a diffuser, and is adjustable in length from 1.5” all the way to 10.5.” The Adjustable Downstem is available in seven color varieties and comes in a retail-ready 35 count display.
