Have you ever been shopping for bongs online and suddenly get overwhelmed by the variety of different types? If this has ever been the case for you do not worry, you are definitely not alone. The amount of different types of bongs available on the market can sometimes make it hard for customers when trying to choose the right one. After all, between different materials, sizes, and styles the variety of different bongs is almost endless. In this post we are going to go over and describe the different types of bongs in detail so the next time you are shopping for one, you will be informed on the different types available to ensure you get just the right one for you.
Different Bong Materials
Glass is by the most popular material to make bongs from. Glass is considered by many smokers to be the standard material for bongs. They are widely produced and are sold at almost every smoke shop. Glass bongs provide a great tasting smoke and ensure you get the full flavor when smoking. One thing about glass bongs is they are obviously fragile, so if you happen to be a clumsy smoker these may not be the best for you.
Silicone is another common bong making material and it has actually been growing very fast in popularity over the past few years. Great glass making companies such as Nucleus have even started to produce them. Silicone bongs are always great for traveling because they are virtually indestructible and you do not have to worry about them getting broken. These are also good for those clumsy smokers we were just talking about.
Acrylic bongs are great for those who are not trying to break the bank when shopping for a bong. These bongs are generally cheaper than bongs made of other materials, so they are perfect for those on a budget. They don’t typically have as classy of a look as glass bongs, but they definitely still get the job done.
Bongs made of ceramic typically look like vases and are usually a piece of art. Although you can make beautiful looking bongs from any material, there is just something about a nice looking ceramic bong. One benefit about them looking nice is they can sometimes be disguised as a home decoration and can hide in plain sight.
The bong materials listed above are just the most favored ones. Bongs can also be made out of bamboo, metal, and other types of materials. Although these types of materials are not as popular as the ones above, they can still be used to make a good bong.
Different Bong Sizes
Most bongs are considered small if they measure under 1 foot tall. These types of bongs are great for daily use because they give users good hits without providing an overwhelming amount of smoke. These are also generally better for new users because it more easily controls the amount of smoke you inhale.
Big bongs are bongs that measure 1 to 2 feet in height. Since these are bigger, they are typically more expensive than small bongs. A lot of big bongs are also more complex because the longer up tube allows more space for percolators, honeycombs, and other bong add-ons. These provide big hits and are recommended for experience smokers.
Extra-large bongs are bongs that measure over 2 feet in height. These things are monsters and can sometimes be daunting to smoke out of. There are even some bongs on the market measuring up to 6 feet in height. If you are looking for a daily bong to use, we do not recommend this one.
Different Bong Styles
The different types of bong styles available on the market is typically what makes finding the right bong so difficult. For each style of bong listed below, there are tons are variations of that style. Also, different styles of bongs can be combined endlessly. For example, you can have a beaker, percolator bong with a zong kink in it. With that being said, we are just going to broadly go over each style to make things simpler and try to just give you an understanding of each.
The beaker style bong is the most popular style of bong. It has a classic look and functions amazingly. It holds more water than a standard straight tube bong so the water does not get dirty as quick. Beaker bongs are also equipped with a wide base for optimal stabilization when the bong is standing upright.
As is sounds, straight bongs are bongs that just have a straight glass tube all the way down to the base. They do not bell out like beaker bongs oppositely do. Straight tube bongs have a clean look and are very simple. Their design makes them super easy to clean when compared to beaker bongs.
This is most complex style of bong because there are so many variations of it. Different types of percolators include showerhead percs, honeycomb percs, tornado percs, tree percs, inline percs, and more. Not only that, but some bongs include more than one percolator in them, so they can further be classified as single perc bongs, double perc bongs, triple perc bongs, and so on. With all these different styles of percolator bongs available it can be overwhelming to choose from. To help you, we try to break this down more clearly. First off, simply put a percolator is just another water chamber built in to the bong. No matter what kind of percolator it is, they have the same function and that is to provide extra water filtration. So for instance a triple percolator bong would provide more water filtration than say a single percolator bong. Now with that being said, you may automatically think a bong with more percolators is better, however, that is not always the case. There are a couple factors to consider when choosing. Bongs with more percs are typically bigger, more expensive, harder to change the water out of, and harder to clean. Single perc bongs on the other hand have the opposite characteristics and are cheaper, less expensive, easier to clean, and easier to change the water out of. So when choosing a percolator bong we recommend considering all those factors to make sure you get the right one for you.
Zongs are possibly the most nostalgic style of bongs. They got that name because of the classic Z shaped up tube that these bongs are equipped with. This style of bong has been around for many years and is just as popular today as it ever has been. That is for a good reason as well. The Z shaped water pipe actually provides the user with benefits by creating a natural splash guard and an ice catcher in the bong. Not only that, but this is also a very cool and unique looking bong that is very stylish. As we said, this bong style is still very popular and will not be going away anytime soon.
