Buying a bong is a commitment no one in recorded history has ever regretted. Not only do they improve the quality of your smoke, they are also a great accentuating piece to your environment. Here are the various types of bongs you can expect to see when searching!
Common Glass Bong Designs
Carburetor Bong: Carburetor bongs, as the name might imply, have a carburetor that you must use to move air through the bong. Using this bong does not require you to remove the stem to pull your hit through. Fill the chamber with smoke and then let it rip!
Straight-Tube Bong: Straight-tube bongs have a straightforward design, with a straight tube, a base and a downstem. These are simple bongs but they do indeed get the job done. The straight-tube bong is a great option for the casual smoker or the first-time bong owner.
Beaker-Shaped Bong: Remember those glass beakers you used to break back in chemistry class? Well, try to be a little more careful with beaker-shaped bongs, which are shaped very similarly. A wider base than tube distinguishes them from straight-tube bongs and makes them the most sturdy glass bong design.
Round-Base Bong: These bongs are characterized by a spherical base but operate largely the same as straight-tube and beaker-shaped bongs.
Multi-Chamber Bong: One of the more complex bong styles, the multi-chamber bong features two water chambers that the smoker will pull the hit through. The double(or more!)-filtration system of multi-chamber bongs cools hits and makes smoking smooth as butter.
Percolator Bong: Percolator bongs use a cool little technology that breaks the smoke up into smaller streams and filters them through water, causing more surface area of the smoke to hit liquid. This cools the smoke faster and filters it better, making this one of the most popular types of bongs available today. Check out a more in-depth look at how percolator bongs work.
