I was also thinking maybe a silver surfer but he's pretty set on bongs

The lux is a great choice. I know they make a 14' and I think an 18' like you described in this price range. Extremely solid tube, tried and true. Reinforced arms, earthworm section for the perc (more percolation), splash gaurd, notches, all diffused... can't complain about anything really. If it's available, it would be a top choice. I would personally recommend he get it, but it can't hurt to look around and see what else is available.

No bong is worth $300 unless one is a glass collector, not that there's anything wrong with that.
WHAT, that is absolutely FALSE!:eek:
a .15 snapper out of my tube gets me ripped every day
Spending 300 on a daily driver that you use ever single day is very worth it. A high end tube will save you weed over the long run, provide a much more enjoyable smoke every day, get you higher (turbulance, if you need an explanation lemme know), Be smoother of a rip, look much better, taste better....the list goes on.
i'm sure you're a great grower dude, and you've got all the rep in the world and could prolly neg rep me down an entire bar if you wnted to but......have you ever hit a high end tube dude...not a fucking roor, but something like a SG, or Toro, SGW, even a high end SYN, Itza any of those, it's a completely diferent smoking experience.
Anyways....For 300 I would get an SGW Waffle

.15 in a good vape will get you stoned ten times though. I love bongs, but you can't begin to compare a quality vape with any tube, sorry. Not wrong at all
EDIT: Yes I've hit plenty of high end tubes. They get me just as high as mid range priced tubes. I can see spending $100-$200 maybe but $300+? Only reason to do that is if you collect for the sake of collecting. Don't kid yourself
If you like high end glass that's cool. I never said it was a bad idea, I just said I don't think it's worth it. It does NOT get you any higher.
i get what your saying, i used to spend a lot of money on tubes($300-1000) and pieces, but i stopped smoking for 2 years. when i started smoking again tho, i realized why the fuck did i spend so much on glass when i can buy a cheaper bong or piece that works the exact same without any loss of quality. so when i bought a bong again i set my max price at $200, but i didnt even need to spend that much, but i figured the $200 for like $60 more 2mm of extra thickness was worth it just incase, but the cheaper bong would have hit just as nice

Sure, I'm not saying buy $40 acrylics. I can see spending maybe up to 200, but after that the only difference is the thickness and craftsmanship and the name. Everyone seems to keep forgetting that often the premium price of high end glass is for the name. Just like the main differences between a VW and an Audi is cosmetic and tiny features (they share most of the same mechanical parts) and the name.
yep, especially dementias brands and roor
they would have a roor, next case over, would be a nameless, or i think greenstar was one of them, and now lux. made in the same factory by the same blowers(at least they used to be a few years back when i was into more expensive pieces), but for the same bong minus the roor label, it would usually be about $50-100 cheaper for the same thickness glass and style of tube
