Recommended Glass/Silicone Bongs

No matter what kind of bongs you prefer, you can find a wide range of bongs at our online head shop. Here are some recommended bongs for your reference.

1. Penis Novelty Glass Bong

The bong is made from high-quality borosilicate glass and the level of details on this bong is just amazing, if you look closely you'll find very lifelike veins on the body and wrinkled skins on the bottom(disturbingly lifelike), yet this bong is very functional, featuring a removable downstem(the glass bowl is fixed with the downstem) and a medium carb hole on the left side of the bong, the hole which you put the downstem in has a blue rubber ring to make a tight seal so when you put water in it won't spill

2.  8" Doggie Theme Glass Bong

The pink dog and the rest of the bong are made from high-quality borosilicate glass, the built quality is quite impressive, the dog is hollow on the inside(like me) and the only perc in this bong is an inline diffuser located on the bottom. 

Despite the silly look, this bong is actually very functional, the base can hold a fair amount of water for filtration and sits very still on any surface, the hits are super smooth, the drag is very comfortable and the slightly bent neck can prevent bong water from spilling in your mouth. 

The bong comes with a 14mm male bowl with handle for buds and since it's got only one percolator you can use a 14mm quartz banger on it converting it into a wax rig! 

3. Pyramid Multi-Perc Recycler Glass Bong

This water bong features not one or two, but THREE percolators in total! The turbine percolator is located on the topper half and the honeycomb percolator is located on the bottom half, the spiral percolator is separated from the pyramid body in an individual chamber, if you look closely you'll find a small hole on the side of the chamber, that's the hole for you to fill water in it for filtration.

The separated chamber design makes this glass bong a recycler, the smoke(or vapor if you're using it as a dab rig) alongside with water will travel from the bottom through the honeycomb and the turbine percolators then into the separated chamber and to the mouthpiece, the water will travel back through the spiral percolator so it'll be chilled at the same time. A pretty unique design to provide just the right amount of drag and filtration when you inhale!
