List of the Best Bong Brands
When you’re thinking about buying a bong, you want a well-built piece with great air-flow, durability, and aesthetics that will stun your friends — and your best choice would be a name brand bong. You’ll want to look for brands that have an established history, are often seen in the media, and have an overall profound reputation for exciting, new, and useful features. We all want something different and the “best” may change depending on the situation, cost, appearance, size, perks, and a host of other minute characteristics.
Here are some of the most important characteristics to consider:
Probably the easiest characteristic that you’ll be able to whittle down is the bong’s size or overall height. Smaller bongs prevent multiple perks and easier to store and carry, while larger bongs provide the opportunity for monster hits, multiple perks, and glamour. There are tiny bongs less than 6 inches in height and there are gigantic 4 footers that will wow any passer-bys.
Perks are what we call the additional filtration systems built-in to the bong. These perks will help cool the smoke and prevent tar from passing into your lungs. The only real downside to a park is that it can increase the draw resistance, or the feeling like your drinking from a thick milkshake. These perks can also be fragile, so a fall that doesn’t break the tube but breaks the more fragile inner perks can still permanently disable your bong.
Another straight forward characteristic when considering the best bong is material type. While glass is the most popular choice, there is also acrylic, silicone, wood, ceramic, and just recently metal.
Bongs come in all shapes, from angular sharp zongs to more bulky round ones. But the base of the bongs themselves only differ in a few ways.
- Beaker Base – The oldest, and most common shape.
- Spherical – Another common shape similar to the beaker bong.
- Standard Tube Shape – Rather than a voluminous bottom, the standard shape is as if the thin bong extends all the way to the floor, and then a flat disc shape is used to keep the bong upright.
– Another important characteristic is the thickness of the glass. The thicker the glass, the more expensive the bong, and less likely it will break. This is one of the most important attributes if you find yourself clumsily kicking your bongs over, or if you often have company or pets. An indestructible bong is often advertised if your bong is 10mm in thickness while standard water pipes are 5mm in thickness.
