Hey everyone, I'm taking a little visit down to the local smokeshop to buy myself a bong! However, I'm a first time buyer, so my question is, how much should a bong thats a little over a foot tall be? Nothing fancy, probably made of glass. I've already checked the prices online, but I figured prices would be different for a walk in shop.

Thanks for your help, just trying to avoid being ripped off.

bongs at the headshop i have been to go from 50, tothe most expensive one that i looked at was 450 but im sure the have a few higher priced than that. mine was 250. it all depends on the thickness of the glass, how big it is, and how much shit is on it.

mine is in my gallery if you want to see it.

Local headshops usually overcharge. The ones around here sell pieces that you can get online for like $80 for double or tripple that... Which is why I buy strictly off-line... Or in NYC :D They usually have good prices.

A foot tall bong, made of glass, nothin too too fancy... I'd expect to pay about $150ish for a decent piece.

Damn, 150? I'm heading down to berekely to try and get some better prices. Would acrylic, bamboo, or ceramic bongs be cheaper?

for 150 you will get a pretty nice bong. it wont just be a regular one, it will probably have some color to it and maybe a marble or something on it. thing about bongs is they can vary so much in quality that the best way is to just go to the headshop and look around. im sure youll find something you like that is in your price range.

LoL, don't think that glass is the only way to go. Many times you can get a much kooler bong for less, just don't make it glass. I have a few acrylic ones, and they are awesome!!! I got an 18" double chambered bong for 30 bucks.... it always gets most of the attention - even over the 150 dollar glass bong I have - LoL, so, I'd go with something other then glass if you aren't looking to spend like, 150-200 dollars.

That's what I was sayin... I said for a foot tall decent bong. They have plain glass ones without any color or anything for cheaper... But if you want something that looks nice, you can expect to dish out around a buck fifty. This all varies by location and the different headshops though...

As someone said a little bit ago... Just look around. You'll find something you like within your price range. You can always get a pretty nice bubbler for $80, if you don't want to dish out so much for a bong..

a onefoot glass bong might cost around 30 dollars at almost every place

however, the headshop in my area is totally ridiculous the same thing would cost 100, no joke, which is why i buy when im at college, or online, thanx gcity

That sounds about right to me. Or you could get a clear glass one with a sticker of a shroom or a leaf for 80-100ish. I got mine for 200, and its a buety.

Edit: I don't like online headies though. Love going to the local place where everybody knows your name.

where i come from any sort of waterpipe, or even a pipe with a carb is illegal, so we dont have headshops. However, there are plenty of blowers who will make you a custom piece, good bong might go around upwards of $40. Theres always the jam shows too.
