Glass Bongs are always our #1 choice when it comes down to smoking dry herbs, comparing to smoking from a glass pipe or a joint, smoke that had been filtered by air had already got rid of most of the tar and other harmful stuff. Not to mention that many of the bongs listed on Puffing Bird feature ice catchers, you can put ice cubes even snow in the bong to get an even more chilled smoke experience.
Let's round up which we think are the best bongs in 2018(so far).

Why Use A Glass Bong For Smoking?
Glass bongs or glass water pipes are the most popular and considered to be the best bong of all. Glass, as everyone knows, is a see-through type of material so you can watch the smoking from burning the dry herb form and gathered in the glass chambers! Glass bongs are known to have so many different characteristics, many of the glass bongs have different types of animal/anime/cartoon themed pedants on them, everyone can pick a bong that they like.
Silicone bongs are one of the new forms of water pipes(Bubblers), due to the silicone material's high temp tolerance, unbreakable feature and foldable feature it's going to be one of the significant ways of consuming dry herbs with bong bowls. Silicone bongs are known to have colorful and have many shapes that are hard for glass bongs to form.
If you are into the kinky stuff you can always check out our novelty bong category, they are whether make from uncommon materials or have some features that mainstream bongs don't have. Like the coffee mug bong for example. They can be your perfect gift to stoner friends!
Mini bongs or small bongs are one of our favorites, you can take the mini bongs anywhere you go, perfect for traveling and having a picnic sesh with friends outdoors!
If you are looking for something to filter out most of the harmful substance from smoking dry herbs, a percolator bong will be perfect for you! Percolator bongs are known to have one or more than one percolators in the glass bong structure to filter out the ash and tar from burning the dry herbs, giving you the smoothest smoking experience possible, it's easier on your throat and your lung! There are many percolator bongs for sale on Puffing Bird with ice catchers that mean you can put ice even snow to have a smoother rip!
Recycler bongs are fun to look then in use, you can see the water and smoke going round and round in through the recycling pipes of the bong. But recycler bongs are known to be more fragile than the bubbler bongs.
Cheap bongs don't necessarily mean low quality, the manual labor cost way less in China than in the US or Spain, so the bongs or water pipes imported from China are normally 3 times cheaper than local made US glass.
Types Of Bongs
This water pipe term is very easy to understand, it looks like a scientific equipment piece: The beaker. Beaker bongs are considered one of the most popular forms of water bong in the cannabis community since it's got a larger base it can sit on any flat surface and won't easily tip over. Perfect shape for everyday use!
This water pipe features a built-in ice catcher which means you can add ice cubes into the tube of the bong. As we all know that smoke generated from herb combustion can be very hot, having ice cubes or even snow in the water pipe can chill the smoke providing a much smoother smoking experience.
The tree perc is one of the most common percolators found in today's bongs, the tree perc sits in the water and has numerous arms that diffuse smoke allowing the smoke to evenly spread in the water creating a smooth hit.
Most commonly seen on beaker bongs, since beaker bongs without a fixed downstem still need a diffuser to diffuse smoke, a removable downstem will be used in that situation, since it's removable the water pipe/bong and the downstem can be clean separately.
Color Changing Glass
The surface of this bong is coated with various materials so it will show different colors under different lightings. A very heady feature!
A flared mouthpiece means that the mouthpiece is thicker or higher than the rest of the bong, it's more comfortable to put your mouth on it and creating a tighter seal for smoking at the same time.
Built-In Carb Hole
This bong has a large carb hole on the left side of the base, that means you don't need to take out the bowl piece/glass slide when you need to carb, simply move your finger away from the carb hole allowing air to get in the bong. If you are into removing the bowl piece carbs you can always plug the carb hole.
