At one point or another, nearly every dorm room or college apartment has been home to one of these acrylic plastic bongs. They’re cheap, they work great and they’re available just about everywhere. Rather than picking one up at the gas station or clearance aisle at your local head shop, you can save money and buy your bong discreetly online.
When you’re buying an acrylic bong, there are a few things to look for. Make sure it’s long enough that you can get a good hit, has a large enough water reservoir to properly cool the smoke, and be on the look out for an acrylic bong with an ice catch. Adding ice to the neck of your acrylic bong is a great way to make sure you get a perfect hit even out of a budget bong.
For about the same amount of money, you can find a wide range of glass bongs that are a big improvement over plastic. This all-glass Amsterdam-style piece has a carb hole instead of a slide, which helps to keep costs low while still offering a premium-quality bong.
The glass bowl is a big bonus compared to acrylic pieces, with their steel bowl and slide. You won’t have to worry about resin buildup making it hard to work the slide and foul up the bowl. Borosilicate glass, like the sort that this bong is made of, can be frozen before being used which helps to make up for the lack of ice catch.
On the whole, this Amsterdam Bubble Base is an excellent smoking option if you’re the sort of smoker who demands the best quality materials at a bargain price.
This premium glass bong is big enough to get great hits, and features an ice catch to help cool the smoke. It’s got a glass slide, in contrast to the Amsterdam-style piece which only uses a carb hole. You can expect to pay a bit more for all of these features, but in the long run it’s worth it.
Anyone would be happy to take a hit out of this classic bong. If you’re looking for a basic piece without a bunch of expensive add-ons like diffusers and spiral chillers, then the Acapulco 500ml straight bong is a great choice.

If you’re looking for a premium perc that works just as well for solo use or with a group of friends, and you want the absolute best one available, then look to Black Leaf’s latest offering. The percolator makes for big, smooth hits which bring out the flavor of your herb while still being very easy on your throat.
