What to Look For When Buying a Bong Online
There are so many great options available these days when it comes to bongs and water pipes. How do you know which one is right for you? Smoking is a personal experience and should be customized to fit your needs and give you the best experience possible. What you are looking for will depend on your experience level, the outcome you are looking to achieve, and the setting in which you are using your new bong. There are several factors to consider here, including the material it is made from, the size, shape, and design.
One choice to make when buying a new bong is what type of material you would like to smoke from. Each material affects the smoke differently. For example:
Glass is often favored because it has a clean, pure taste and does not flavor the smoke. Resin build-up is easy to see in a glass bong and easy to clean. While glass bongs and water pipes may be slightly more expensive, they are usually a better option.
Plastic bongs are common and often opted for because of durability and the smoker’s concern about dropping them. The biggest concern with plastic is that it will distort the flavor of the smoke.
- Metal bongs are often cheap, but always distort the taste of the smoke. Metal bongs also make it impossible to know when it is time to clean them, and cleaning them is very difficult.
Something else to consider when purchasing a bong is definitely the size. A smaller bong is likely to be more compact and discreet, making it more portable and easier to travel with. Smaller bongs are also easier to handle and less likely to be tipped over. A larger bong has more room for percolation and more room for special contraptions and accessories such as ice catches and bowl attachments, which enhance the smoking experience.
The Shape of the Bong
Bongs come in many different shapes, each with its own distinguishing characteristics, features, and functionality. These are some of the basic types of bong shapes:
Straight Tube or Straight Neck Bong. The straight tube or straight neck bong is exactly what it sounds like. It is a very simple, straightforward design that is easy to use and clean.
The Beaker Shaped Bong. The beaker shaped bong takes its name from it’s laboratory look-alike and has a much wider base than the regular straight neck bong, which gives it more stability. It is also easy to use and clean.
The Multi-Chamber or Recycler Bong. The multi-chamber bong, also known as the recycler bong, is a new twist on the old straight neck bong. The straight tube is separated into connected chambers; these chambers have endless variations on size and shape. Each chamber serves as a filter for the smoke, further cooling it to produce a smoother, more comfortable sensation.
Percolator Bong or Bubbler. The percolator bong, commonly referred to as a bubbler, can come in any shape or size. What makes a bong a bubbler is that there is a piece of glass that dissipates the smoke before it passes through the water. This is what causes the bubbling or percolating effect giving the apparatus its name. Dispersing the smoke in this way filters it through the water, causing it to be much cooler before it reaches the smoker.

Gravity Bong. The gravity bong comes in a few different varieties; the common theme among them is that they use water to create a vacuum to draw out the smoke to be inhaled. Gravity bongs produce very intense hits of smoke.
The design of glass bongs and water pipes has only gotten more elaborate with time, and is now looked at as an art. You can get almost anything you want in the way of color or design. Make sure you get something you like, something that represents you and something that will enhance your overall smoking experience.
How Does a Bong Work
In its most basic form, a bong is a bowl and a chamber. As you inhale, smoke is pulled through water in the chamber which filters and cools it. All of the accessories and attachments added to bongs and water pipes are to enhance this filtering system. This process of filtering smoke through water makes each hit that you take cleaner, cooler, and smoother. Things to Consider are:
Joint Sizes for Bongs
Bongs come in different sizes, the common sizes are 10mm, 14.5mm, 18.8mm and 29.2mm.
Small Portable Bongs
Bongs come in all shapes and sizes. Some of the Best Bongs are portable that you can take with you anywhere.

Why Smoke Out of a Bong or Water Pipe?
Bongs or dab rigs are healthier for you than smoking out of paper (no matter what type it is) or other types of bowls. When you smoke from a bong, the water filters out particulate matter and certain toxins that you would directly inhale by smoking using other methods. The cooling effect produced by a bong or water pipe serves to protect your mouth, throat and lungs from heat allowed when using other methods. Glass bongs and water pipes do not have a chemical reaction to the heat produced from the burning of herbs or the heat of the smoke like smoking from a plastic or metal apparatus can. Because they are easier to clean, bongs do not have the risk of building up mold or bacteria like other bowls might.
Aside from health, bongs make for a more comfortable and pleasurable smoking experience. The cooler filtered smoke produced from a bong hit is much smoother and less likely to induce coughing. A glass bong gives a pure and unaltered smoke, which allows you to taste all of the deeper aromas produced.
You can also take bigger hits when smoking from a bong. The cooler smoke allows for bigger, longer draws, and you are less likely to cough and lose them!
