The current bongs are being made using the hand-blown glass which may changes the colors. With the translucent acrylic, detailed and wooden tubes ceramic version are now readily found at the market. They are in different sizes from the portable mini bongs to the massive water pipes that may stand tall of 15 feet. There are the least expensive models that are smaller and also plain. The prices of the bongs do increase for the expensive models based on the thickness of a glass, the styling of its artwork with the intricacy of its accessories.
The height, size and the shape of the bongs affects the way that the smoke is being pulled within the water chamber in the tube. A diameter of a down stem with the bowl also may determine the flow of the smoke and the air. The following are the most popular bongs. The percolator is used to incorporate the suspended chamber over water line and it is filled with water that it is used for multiple filtration of smoke. The process makes small bubbles and it is more efficient when it comes to filter the toxic substance and to cooling down its smoke. Even if the smoke may take time, it comes out smoother with more holes together with the slits into the international down stem of the perc and to provide good diffusion with increased drag. There are some pieces that have a sub-chamber into the tube and they provide additional benefits while they require a harder pull.
The perc bongs are found in three options. The tree perc uses the downward facing arms which creates the follow paths within the water. The drag decreases when more arms are being used. The artistic adaption of this bong includes angled arms and twisting branches. The spiral perc do coil their way from water chamber into the three arms at the bottom with the small holes or the slits within the cylinder. The design is used to form the basis of a double helix with the glycerin-filled wrap that may be frozen. The disk shaped bongs push smoke at the bottom of water chamber and it pulls it out using the upwards through holes. The honeycomb has the design of many holes that are used to produce the mall bubbles and these bongs are called honeycomb bongs. The showerhead is the horizontal tube that has the holes and the slits on its sides.
The bubbler bongs are the hybrid off the pipe and the bongs. They are light weight and more portable version. It is like the pipe and it features the drop-down chamber where the water is kept and it cools and filters the smoke inside. The bongs produce a lighter and smoother drag but the user can inhale the water easily when he pulls hard. The long neck does end in the small hole on the mouthpiece and the carb can replace a slider stem. Because of the design, the bubbles cannot be cleaned much easily as other types of bongs. Other types of bongs include mini, scientific, recycler and dab rig bongs.
