If you don't smoke tobacco and instead prefer a 'legal herb' than Silver's give one of the best tastes. It's a lot easier to taste your drug of choice and although it doesn't have the lack of chemicals like OCB rizla or the intense flavours of Juicy Jay's , the thinness of these rizlas means you don't get the thick, bland, papery taste that ruins your smoke like some papers do.
Although they could be a little larger in my opinion, silver's work fine for what they are and are acceptable to roll with like most papers from this brand. The gum sticks well and has never been a problem so far, but can be hard to roll with if you're heavy handed like me. As per most packets, you get 33 papers usually for around 80p (unless you buy multipack which is considerably cheaper) which is a good buy considering the quality. Overall, slims should always be the standard Rizla you buy; flavoured Juciy Jays are much more interesting and certain Rizla brands have even less of a papery taste but both of these types would cost more and maybe leave you with less papers and since Silver Slims are available anywhere, are the norm for the regular smoker to buy.
I personally cannot use any other papers whatsoever. The taste (or lack of) is what I love the most about these Rizla Silver papers. Let's be honest here, I spend more money on the tobacco than I do on the papers, so why would I want to taste the paper more than my flavoured tobacoo that I pay so much for.
The only problem I do have with these papers is due to their ultra slim design they do tend to be troublesome when rolling dry tobacco. So at the end of the week when I am running out and what I have left has become dry, I sometimes spend more time rolling than I do smoking.
I suppose I should really invest in a better tobacco jar to keep my tobacco moist and then I would truly enjoy these papers and I wouldn't have a bad word to say about them.
Silver Rizla. What an invention, the full smoking pleasure for the premium marijuana smoker. I would like to see them make them any thinner! Hats off to the french bloke who invented the rizla world.
Rizla silvers are the latest rizla branded papers to be released in the Uk and unlike the rest of their range they are not built to a recipe from several hundred years ago, its all new and a lot of money and science went into making theese shiny new papers, but was it worth it?
When you consider that the average human hair is between 50-100 microns thick you may be suprised to hear that silver rizlas are only 20 microns thick, but I assure you it's true! It comes as a result of being machine rolled and pressed no less than 40 times and the end result is a paper so thin you do not need to hold it up to the light to be able to see through it! A quick note for those of you who smoke herbal roll ups theese papers are so thin that it whatever you choose to fill your ciggie with shall be easily visible. Many people have expressed concerns that such a thin paper would be largely unworkable and prone to ripping, however as a result of a 12 hour refining process at 90degC silvers are ultra glossy which also makes them harder to rip than your standard blues. Some people do find them too thin to roll with (mainly people with less experience) I would advise that if you struggle to roll in general then avoid theese papers, otherwise give them a try, the taste is none existant and i find that to be a bonus of epic proportions.
At 11cm long theese are the longest of the rizla papers sp for those of you who like a longer smoke, whether it be alone or with friends do bear in mind that you gain 1cm more than on a packet of kingsize reds and this could make all the difference.
Not only the thinnest and longest of the rizlas but at 44mm they are also the slimmest. No longer will you need to wrap all that annoying extra paper round and round or attempt to rip it off. Our prayers have finally been answered with a paper which is slim enough not to negate the ultra thin nature of the paper, also with ridges running along the length of the paper they are easier to roll than other brands!
Using rizlas special Arabic Gum you will have no trouble sticking with theese papers (and i mean it), the papers are so fine that the generous serving of gum soaks right in bonding the paper right the way through. For those of you wishing to be daring and join papers together then read no further and go to your shop to buy some, they are the best papers you will find for the job!
Your shiny packet of silvers will contain 33 lovely papers in each packet and also a handy slip to inform you when you are 5 papers away from running out. The pack contains a piece of green card which can be quite useful for making your own filters and unlike some brands the packet is not too thick to roll effectively either.
All of you binhead fans out there (the game involving skinning a lid for a pint glass and burning holes untill the penny drops, also known as the rizla game) theese papers are advised; they will however burn very easilly and if you make a hole near the glue it will travel a long way.
As the packet says "the ultimate rolling experience", if you are good at rolling then give them a try, they are slightly more expensive but well worth it. People who are less able at rolling avoid theese papers, if you roll them too slack they will turn brown due to the thin nature of the paper exposing all the nasties in your roll.
I will review several other papers over the coming week to help you make the best decision for you.
Theoretically a great idea, ultra slim rizla. Obviously the rolling public complained about having to breath in a small tree with their baccy, rizla replied with slim line papers a small size above being non existent and labelled them silver, a mark of how special they are. Following a recomendation I strolled down to my local corner shop one hung over sunday morning waiting for death and went through the normal motions of being rippped off for a packet of a bottle of coke, sunday tabloid, Golden V and wait, put down your blue rizla mr.shop keeper, i'll have some of those silver rizlas please. Only 90p I cough, well they must be good! How wrong can I be. On first appearances, fine to roll, ultra slim. glue line working a treat, look like tracing paper. Then the ultimate test, five for a pound lighter comes out and I take the first drag of the day. Okay, can't really taste anything different yet, rolley shrivling up like a prune. It goes out every drag causing me to annoyingly re-light and inhale a huge drag of cancer causing nicotine. So in conclusion i'll go back to the blue favourites.
Launched in the UK on October 1st 2003 If you're like me and try to save money by using rolling tobacco it doesn't mean you don't enjoy a decent smoke. There's nothing worse than smoking a load of paper - I've taken papers from mates before and they're as thick as A4 in the office! I know smoking's not exactly healthy, but at least I feel like the thinner the paper the purer the cigarette. Less if definitely more as far as rolling paper weight is concerned. Rizla Silvers are the lightest ever produced by Rizla and are so thin they are transparent. Natural gum Arabic is used to ensure both taste and stickiness are of the highest quality. These rolling papers also feature the unique Rizla King Size Slim Silver watermark. I found them to be excellent - they stick first tie, they are tasteless to smoke, they are even a bit damp-resistant (well enough to spend an evening down the pub in my jeans pocket!) If you can't get them in your local shops yet - they are widely available online for 90p a packet - which I also find good value considering their superior quality to other products on the market.
