What qualifies as a big bong? Every bong in this section measures at least 40cm (16 inches) in height. Although the height requirement is the price of entry, there’s a lot more to this collection than sheer size. There’s plenty of style here to choose from as well.
Why a Big Bong?
Big bongs create a visual party impact that makes an impression on everyone. Just whip out your big bong at a party and watch what happens. Big bongs are sturdy and easy to handle, lessening the risk of disappearing, breaking or being dropped. The greater volume of air and water, coupled with the greater surface area of glass will cool and moderate the smoke, producing smooth, easy hits and a relaxing atmosphere.
Tradition Meets Technology
Archaeologists tell us that bongs were being used as long as 2,000 years ago, during the time of the Roman Empire. The word itself comes from the Thai language and describes a form of wooden pipe from that region that uses water. Modern bongs are still made from wood, bamboo, ceramic and pottery, but more often than not, they’re made of special high quality glass. Glass offers easy cleaning, durability and endless original shapes.
Some bongs are made of modern composite materials and most benefit from computer aided design, 3D manufacturing processes and advanced flow analysis. The results of all this high technology design are found in the many combinations and styles of percolators, water chambers and lengths of tubing. Some bongs have integrated bowl lighters, air pumps, LED lighting and ice chambers. Keep a nice cleaning tray handy.
