How one can Choose the Right Bong for You
Buying a bong for the first time and even the a hundredth time might be daunting. There are such a lot of totally different styles, percolators, designs, glass thickness it’s hard to know the place to start. This quick guide will make it easier to narrow your search down so you will be smoking in no time.
Let’s start with the fashion or look of the bong that you would prefer. The primary types to select from are straight tube, beaker bongs, and recycler. Straight tubes have dense smoke and clear quick. Beaker bongs have more quantity and less dense smoke, harder to clear but bigger rips. We now have a guide on the distinction between beaker bongs and straight tubes for those who would like more information. Recyclers are mostly used for smoking concentrates, which recycles the water. As a beginner I might stick with either a straight tube or beaker bong.
Glass thickness is very important because it decides on how long your bong lasts. The thicker the higher obviously but also try to take into consideration the setting the bong goes to be in. If it’s going to be safe and stay in only one room, don’t fear about thickness as much. In case you plan on bringing it with you all over the place or have clumsy friends, attempt to get the thickest glass. The thinnest glass starts at 2-3mm then moves up to three-5mm is your average thickness. Then glass 5-7mm is pretty darn thick and hard to break. Choose anyplace above 3.5mm glass thickness and try to be fine.
Percolators is a sizzling topic because there are not any clear winners of which one is the perfect, everybody just has a favorite and sticks with it. There are two things you look for in a percolator the smoothness it provides from filtration and the quantity of drag it provides from pulling smoking through the tiny holes. If you're new to bongs and smoke you do not need a percolator but they are nice to have. Attempt not to buy a bong with to many percolators, it could appear like a good idea but the drag from all the percolators can be hard to clear the chamber.
Here is a temporary ranking of popular percolators.
Honeycombs: Nice filtration and very minimal drag. Very popular choice.
Tree: Nice filtration and very minimal drag. One other widespread choice.
Shower heads: produces mediocre filtration and smoothness and provide very minimal drag.
Inlines: Fairly good filtration and common drag. Great for dab rigs.
Turbines: produce mediocre filtration and have a bit more drag than shower heads.
Clean Your Bong
It is advisable to take into consideration of cleaning your new bong. Eventually your bong is going to get soiled and crammed with tar and smoke residue all around the glass. If you choose a simple bong with no percolators cleaning will likely be simple. When you choose a bong with a percolator with even 2 or 3 of them cleaning will not be so easy. When you do want to buy a bong with percolators, get an ashcatcher. Its a lot easier cleaning an ashcatcher instead of your bong.
Joints (not the kind you roll) are available widespread sizes 14mm and 18mm. There are a couple of other sizes which we cover in our joint sizes weblog so check that out. Try to purchase a bong with the identical measurement joints as this will make your life easier because should you break a slide or downstem you may combine and match and they're going to all fit together.
Add-ons – buying a bong with these are a plus but not needed.
Splashguard– Blocks soiled bong water from getting into your mouth
Ice pinch– holds ice to cool the smoke down
Ash catcher– one other stage of filtration. Catches all the ash.
Percolator – cools the smoke for a less harsh hit.
