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.
Summary: The pinnacle of papers, but be warned, experienced rollers only
