It can be quite daunting to buy a bong especially if this is just your first time doing so. As a matter of fact, plenty of things have to be factored in when buying one such as designs, styles, percolators and glass thickness. In this guide, you are going to sort your search so you can start smoking.
Let us begin with the look or style of the bong that you prefer. There are 3 popular types of bongs you can buy today and these are beaker bongs, recycler and straight tube. In the latter, this is creating dense smoke and clears quickly while in the beaker bongs, it is creating more volume but with less dense smoke however, it may be hard to clean but has bigger rips. When it comes to recyclers, this is normally used to smoke concentrates that are recycling water. Say for example that it’s just your first time smoking bong, it will be highly recommended that you buy either straight tube or the beaker bong.
It is highly recommended that you take a look at the glass bong thickness before you buy one. Well basically, the thicker the glass bong you’ve bought, the longer it is going to last. But you need to take into consideration as well of the environment which your bong is used. If it will be used in just one room, then you don’t have to worry too much on its thickness. On the other hand, it is going to be advisable to buy thicker glass bongs if you will use it along with friends and bring it on places. The thinnest glass bongs are normally at 2 to 3 millimeter then it moves up to 3 to 5 which is the average thickness. If you want to be safe, then it will be preferable if you are going to buy one that have 5 to 7 millimeter thick glass. However, if you buy glass bongs with 3.5 millimeter thickness or above, you will do just fine.
Percolators are stirring quite an attention as there’s no clear winner to which one is ideal to use as everyone has their preference and sticks with it. There are a couple of things that you have to watch out for in percolators which includes the smoothness it provides from the filtration as well as the amount of drag that it gives from pulling smokes in the tiny holes.
You should be aware as well on how you can clean the bong. Whether you like it or not, your glass bong will be filled with tar and smoke after prolonged use. So long as you buy simple bongs without percolators, cleaning will be fairly easy and simple.
Just follow these tips when buying one and you will do just fine.
