The best bongs of 2018 was a tough list to rank as there are many great options. We have put together a list of the best bong at every price point. They get you really stoned really fast and are sometimes even art pieces. Bongs are investment pieces so you want to make sure you choose the right one, but not break the bank.
When looking into investing a water pipe you want to look for quality, thickness (of glass), downstem, filters (or percs), and functionality. And if you’re looking for something you can display in your room than of course aesthetic appeal is something to look for as well.
A standard high quality glass bong cost between $100 – $500. You could go for a cheaper option likes a acrylic water pipe, or a lower quality glass bong but ultimately you get what you pay for. A $20 bong performs a lot differently than a $400 one. The more you spend the longer your item will last and the better it will perform. But that’s doesn’t necessarily mean you have to buy a $10,000 bong to properly toke up. That’s just ridiculous.
You can get the most bang for your buck, without spending all your bucks. Here are some great choices for bongs under $150.
