Gen. 3 Valorian Slurper

The unit performs amazingly and is an absolute joy to shred.

The Gen. 3 Valorian Slurper from Victory Glassworks incorporates some of the latest tech in specialty quartz nails. Designed to spin your terps and not splash them, the unit is built from the ground up with efficiency in mind.  

The unique design features taller walls in the main chamber, which provide more surface area for a dab to spread out over and vaporize from. The unit performs amazingly and is an absolute joy to shred. The tall and tight walls of the main chamber, combined with the nail’s unique airflow, provide an ultra-rapid spinning action that effortlessly crushes through large dabs.

When asked what separates the unit from others in the market, the team at Victory Glassworks stated, “The biggest difference is the intake geometry. D-Nail and Pukinbeagle spent months refining the intakes, and we use their specs. It majorly transforms how much rotational energy you get and less splash.”

Comparatively, the Gen. 3 Valorian is much more affordable when stacked up against other high-end branded “terp-slurper” style quartz, and clocks in at $130 where others in the field range from $250-$1,000. For someone not interested in flexing a brand and merely interested in a quality, USA-made nail, the Gen. 3 Valorian is a perfect option.

The bottom dish has a gorgeous carved laurel wreath style pattern that is not functional, but adds some eye-catching appeal to the piece. The nail’s heat retention is excellent and holds the temp for much longer than one would expect, especially given the thickness of the walls.  

Overall, this wallet-friendly option is a winner and strikes an ideal balance between aesthetics, function and price point – leaving all the boxes checked.
