4 Main types of types of bongs

Bongs are essentially filtration devices used to enhance the smoking experience. In its most basic definition, a bong resembles a glass tube with some water at the bottom. While smoking, the bong is designed in such a way that the smoke from the combusting substance passes through the water where it is cooled, bubbles up through the chambers, and gets to your respiratory chamber. Since the smoke is whipped up through the water, the output is often a thick, creamier and friendly smoke.

Classic glass bongs

This is the simplest bong you can have. It is very easy to find and offers a superior smoking experience compared to traditional bamboo or plastic designs. Classic Glass Bongs have three main components. A straight cylinder, water in a bowl, and an ice catcher. The herbal material is lit in the bowl. Thus, once you suck in the air in the chamber, the smoke passes through the water and gets into the chamber. The smoke in the chamber is thus cooled, filtered, and filtered.

Percolator bongs

The percolator pongs are perceived technically superior to the classic glass bong discussed above. Ideally, the main difference between a percolator bong and the classical design discussed above is that the percolators offer an extra level of filtration. As a result, the smoke produced by percolator bongs tends to be creamier and cleaner than that produced by a basic bong. Most glass water pipe manufactures tend to make this bong design superior in all ways, which makes it durable and functionally superior.

Honeycomb percolator bong

This is amazing for any smoker. Even better, these types of bongs do not need an extra stem piece. Instead, the bowl fits perfectly into the permanently attached stem. Honeycomb percolators are highly regarded due to their ability to whip up a potent and milky smoke.

Vanity pieces

This is a fairly expensive unit compared to other types of bongs. This bong passes the smoke through additional filters, thus producing a lightly filtered smoke. This bong is ergonomically designed considering that you do not have to pull the bowl out of the stem to clear the contents. Instead, you only need to take use the small carb hole. The carb hole also makes it easy to build up the smoke according to your unique preferences.
