The pipe industry, in general, is constantly evolving and bongs, in particular, are certainly no exception. It was only a few decades ago when glass bongs didn’t even exist. Your primary choices were ceramic or acrylic. My how the tables have turned. Now glass bongs absolutely dominate the industry. Within the category of glass bongs, you still have an overwhelming amount of choices. In this article, I’ll break down the various options to help you make the most informed decision when purchasing your next bong.
For most people, price is certainly a factor. Glass bongs usually start in the 30-40 dollar range and go up into the hundreds. There are even some which go into the thousands, but those are a small subset of highly collectible pieces from well-known artists. One huge factor is whether the piece is imported from overseas or made in the US. You can save a lot of cash by purchasing an imported bong. Other factors include size, thickness, and percolation, which I’ll expand on below.
Typically, the bigger the bong the higher the price although there are certainly exceptions to this rule. For me, a bong between 14-16 inches is perfect, but everyone has their own preference. Maybe you’re looking for something more discrete in which case getting a small or mini bong is the way to go. On the other hand, some people want to go big and test their limits with a bong that’s 18+ inches.
In addition to price, the thickness of a bong will affect both its durability and weight. I like bongs that are super thick. They just feel right in my hands. Some people are looking for something a bit more lightweight and go for something on the thinner side. While any well-made bong is going to be reasonably durable, it’s undeniable that a thicker bong will hold up better to accidental drops.
There are many types of percolators (often referred to as percs) available on bongs. At their core, all percs do the same thing – add additional filtration for a smoother smoking experience. In exchange for the smoother hit, you are typically going to pay a few dollars more. Also, percs can make cleaning a bong slightly more difficult. buy GLASS BONG online
