Are Bigger Bongs Better?

Smokers would quick to think that a bigger bong is a better bong and we can't help but agree that some of these bigger pieces look absolutely awesome in a glass collection.

Bong Types

More communities are able to enjoy smoke, especially in the United States. Bongs come in many different varieties but here are some of the most popular:

Glass Bongs - Glass bongs are popular because they are clean, sharp, and can be blown into almost any shape. Glass bongs can be made thicker or thinner depending on the way you smoke so be sure to buy the right one

Silicone Bongs - Are nearly indestructible and some can even withstand a good amount of heat. It provides a different look and feel and is also light weight.

Percolator Bongs - Percolators can be added to the bong to increase smoke diffusion which translates to a better hit. Percs can create drag which means that you have to inhale more strongly to get the smoke.  Some people like drag, it is a personal preference.

Ice Bongs - a splash guard lets you add ice to the neck of the bong so that your smoke doesn't hit your lungs so harshly. We also have glycerin bongs that can be stored in the freezer for cool hits always.
