It’s a laidback hobby, but don’t be mistaken: the marketplace for bongs is full of competition offering you a great variety of styles and features.
Whether you’re looking for a simple beaker for that reliably-smooth experience, or a more intricate percolator for those uber-cooled rips, we’ve got you covered with a list of the best bongs for your bucks!
We’ll be covering a variety of specs, ranging from carb holes, glass sliders, wide bowls, ice notches, and much more.
So check out the list below to find out which bongs made the cut.
1. Black Leaf – ELITE Cylinder 6-Arm Perc Bong with Carb Hole
Behold! This is the kind of bong that blasts you off and gives you something to marvel at afterwards.
Beautifully-crafted 5mm borosilicate glass curves up an elegant 39cm height, showcasing all of its internal features.
The slitted diffuser adapter comes in at 18.8mm while a whopping 14.5mm funnel bowl leaves plenty of room for all your needs.
But let’s talk percs: Black Leaf has incorporated a 6-arm slitted tree perc that, when paired with the ice notch functionality, will create the coolest vapors so you can enjoy powerful puffs.
You’ll also get a great splash guard which helps keep bong water contained in the system—instead of in your lungs. From the top to the bottom, this piece was designed to maximize functionality and comfort.
With a carb hole and rubber carb stopper, you can be intimately in charge of each rip. Buy Here
2. Snoop Dogg Pounds Battleship Herb and Concentrate Bong
From Snoop Dogg’s own signature line, the Battleship bong will have you ripping hits like the king of green himself.
5mm borosilicate glass comprises the 32cm height, peaking atop the chamber with the red Pounds logo.
But let’s talk functionality. This is a percolator bong, and it’s well-equipped for the job. A three-tiered perc system utilizes one honeycomb design and two tornado discs.
The result is a holistic system that provides incredibly cool and filtered vapors for your inhaling pleasure.
Add to this a fixed downstem with a 14.5mm male joint and 14.5mm herb bowl with a roll stopper handle, and you’ll be ready to rip.
But it gets better: this multi-function bong can be easily switched for different modes. Simply swap out one bowl for another and you can go from waxy concentrates to herbs with ease.
For added stability, the entire bong sits atop an extra-thick glass base to prevent any spills. Snoop Dogg has made a name for himself as the king of green, so you can bet that any bong under his name will live up to his…high standard. Buy Here
3. Straight Glycerin Ice Bong with 8 Arm Tree Perc
This one gets straight to the point—literally!
The Straight Glycerin Ice Bong presents itself with a straight tube design, but for what its appearance lacks in complexity, it makes up for in functionality.
First, let’s just point out one of its coolest features: the glycerin jackets that can be removed and placed in the freezer. Once icy, replace it onto the bong and enjoy the extra frigid boost!
Reaching 15 inches tall, it includes a slitted diffuser, 18.8mm female joint, and an 18.8mm male bowl slide.
And now….for the perc. This bad boy comes equipped with an 8 arm tree perc that will work wonders on vapors, chilling them out. Unlike many other models that neglect percolators entirely, this one offers that ultra-filtering effect you’ve come to know and love.
Rip in style with various color options to choose from, all emblazoned by the company’s slogan: Instrumentum Percolatus. Buy Here
4. Trailer Park Boys Bubbles Face Beaker Bong
And so we come to it: the first beaker bong on the list. Beakers are great because of their simplicity—not unlike the Trailer Park Boys themselves.
But sometimes simpler is better, and that’s exactly what this bong provides.
First, its design: you’re greeted by the standard beaker base profile while a sassy curved chamber creeps up the top.
Keep your sessions lighthearted with “Trailer Park Boys” emblazoned across one side and Bubbles’ face watching clumsily from the base.
But don’t let the humor distract you from the cold hard specs: this bong is no joke.
At 12 inches tall, it’s made from high-quality glass while utilizing a diffused downstem, ice notch, and removable bowl. In many ways, this bong is the best of both worlds. You get a serious, durable rig with all the comedy you’ve come to know and love from the Trailer Park Boys.
Throw a couple ice cubes down the chamber and enjoy ice cold rips with the boys! Buy Here
5. Grav Labs 8.75” Helix Flare Water Pipe
From one of the premiere bong producers out there, Grav Labs has created something truly special here.
Their Helix Flare Water Pipe may look a bit alien at first, but it’s actually very elegant and all serves rip-enhancing purposes.
The beaker segment harkens back to a standard style while the base flares out widely.
Made from high-quality borosilicate glass, the bong is sturdily balanced, especially with the flaring base—accidental spills are unlikely!
You know how precarious some sessions can get, especially when you’ve got your more…reckless friends over. But with this bong’s flared base, unintentional spills will be a thing of the past.
At 8.75 inches, it’s a stout piece that packs a punch and facilitates glorious rips! Buy Here
6. Hitman Fresh Tech Orbital Recycler
What happens when science meets bongs? You get the Hitman Fresh Tech Orbital Recycler—the bong you have to see to believe.
At first, it might look like a miniature model of some elaborate telescope. But don’t fret: it’ll all make sense in a moment.
Made with high-grade borosilicate glass, the unique design all suits very important functions.
A hammerhead percolator sits in the bottom chamber while the “orbiter recycler” contains a small chamber that spins quickly.
This spinning motion generates cyclone-like motions to enhance filtration and frigidity, making each rip an icy cool pleasure.
Flavor and coolness is only further enhanced thanks to re-filtering water where toxicities are removed and purities retained.
Additional features serve to sustain functionality and ease-of-use, including a downstem (14.5mm male joint) and a 14.5mm vapor dome.
For added comfort, the mouthpiece is flared for a secure yet gentle fit—a great compliment! Topping off the whole package is the company’s Hitman logo.
With all these features, it could seem a little overwhelming, but overall it is an elegantly simple rig. You’ll also be surprised with how easy it is to get used to.
Simply put, this system will create some of the smoothest, coolest rips you’ve had. Buy Here
7. Grace Glass 7mm Straight Cylinder Ice Bong
The Grace Glass 7mm Straight Cylinder Ice Bong is full of perks—namely, 2 percs stacked on top of each other for an unbelievably smooth rip.
“Ice” is a fitting name for this beautiful 58cm piece made of 7mm thick borosilicate glass—fully transparent from top to bottom.
But for those in-the-know, the dual-stacked percs will stand out the most—and no, it’s not just a redundant gimmick. Each perc is of the 10-arm tree variety, ensuring each inhalation is smooth and cool.
Great additional features include a 29.2mm tank joint that contains its own 6-arm tree percolator diffuser—a downstem of 29.2mm > 18.8mm. Additionally, you’ll get an 18.8mm glass slide bowl that comes with its own glass handle, keeping the entire system ergonomic.
The Grace Glass includes a carb hole, which is a great inclusion for those who prefer a more intimate and manual experience. The included rubber carb stopper increases the range of use and preference.
Topping it all off is a gorgeous bubbly-glass design atop the chamber, adding a floaty, ethereal look for every and all future sessions. You’ll also be treated to the Grace Glass logo emblazoned near the top—a fitting name for such a gracefully-designed piece. Buy Here
8. ROOR Blue Series Bong
Yes, they don’t look fancy, or complicated. They may not be a big crowd-pleaser, but these ROOR Blue Series Bongs are the reason you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.
From the very base, you’re treated to quality engineering with the hexagonal base that resists even the most reckless accidental elbow nudges.
The ROOR uses a non-diffuser downtube and a glass funnel bowl. Additionally, it comes with a three point screen made of glass—and although there’s no percolator on this model, you can still expect incredibly smooth, thick, and cool rips.
The joint size is 14.5mm for a bong that emphasizes simplicity over complexity. This makes it a master of one instead of a jack of all trades.
In some instances, too much complexity can become a burden. Focusing too much on endless features could create an overburdened system. However, simplicity is sometimes key, and this is certainly the case with ROOR.
It functions as straightforward as it looks, keeping things simple like a standard beaker bong with its own unique features. You won’t find any extra features like ice notches or carb holes, but this is where the ROOR’s strength is.
As is customary with all ROOR bongs, this one comes with its own unique authentication seal. This serves to ensure that you have not obtained an inauthentic sham version sold by unauthorized third-parties.
In keeping with their commitment to authenticity, these bongs are handmade and will often vary slightly from one item to the next. For all the right reasons, this makes ROOR that much more an incredible experience. Buy Here
9. Marley Natural Smoked Bubbler
It’s hard to not get sentimental when you hear the name “Marley”, and the signature line of bongs named after the legendary musician are no exception.
The Marely Natural Smoked Bubbler is simple yet elegant. In terms of its visual design, things stay sleek and light. In fact, it’s extremely lightweight—a natural consequence of its simplicity.
Thanks to its minimal parts, functionality and cleanup will remain quick and easy. The system operates largely through the bubbler which, once filled with water, pairs well with any dry herbs of your choice.
As with any product officially aligned with the Bob Marley name, it has to live up to a high standard. The bong’s wide bowl does it justice, allowing for big servings for even bigger rips.
Smooth, cool, and dense, each inhale will maintain flavor and quality like only Marley could. Buy Here
