This is one of the questions that seems straightforward but is not. Let's look into the different kinds of bongs that are out there and the reason they are the price they are.
Prices Of Bongs
Beaker Bongs range from $100-$150. A Beaker bong is a pipe used for smoking dry herbs that features a beaker-shaped base to hold the water.
Silicone Bongs are on the cheaper side of the spectrum ranging from like $40-$60. Silicone bongs might be cheaper but they aren't the safest or healthiest. They offer little in function, so probably stay away if you can afford a better one.
Percolator Bongs range from $50-$200. They put an emphasis on utilizing different style percs to cleanse smoke.
Types Of Bongs
Probably what most people picture when you say the word bong. Beaker bongs almost exclusively feature a downstream percolator which is the rod connecting the joint to the water. Smoke travels through this rod and the diffusion begins. Beaker bongs are easy to use and typically cheaper than other bongs. Due to the downstem, they are limited in function and filtration but make up for it with ease of use and low maintenance.
Made of rubber, silicone bongs are different than glass bongs with one advantage, they hardly break. The downside is they offer little in the way of function, filtration, and cooling power. Silicone bongs are typically cheap with little to no percolators aside from a standard downstem. While the rubber is heat resistance the idea of putting fire and smoke through rubber and then inhaling is terrifying. You get what you pay for and this is your health we're talking about. Do yourself a favor and stay away from silicone bongs.
Percolator Bongs aka Scientific Glass
This is what Freeze Pipe's bongs fall under. Technically you could label us as glycerin bongs, but we're so much more than that. Percolator bongs put an emphasis on utilizing different style percs to cleanse smoke. Ever smoke your friend's bong and felt out of breath afterwards? That's because not all percs are created equal. The more perc heavy a bong becomes the less air flow it will have, in addition to being a royal pain to clean. The key is to find the right style and amount of percolators to use. The team at Freeze Pipe put a ton of resources and energy into designing and testing our percolators. We feel confident our pieces maximize filtration without sacrificing air flow or overly difficult to clean.
