Ok, so for the past few months I have made a few threads saying that I wanted a bong, however I just cashed my check, and now its time to place an order. I change my mind at least 3 times a day it seems as to what I actually want. My budget is under $200, the cheaper the better, however I still want a good tube. Now personally I hate browsing on ALT, idk but their sort function doesnt work for me and it is very hard to search by price or see all of their stuff. But I am gonna go through all the brands and link the bongs I like with pics and $. First off, are Zobs, I am very interested in some of their tubes ZOB - 14" INCH OG STRAIGHT - RASTA LABEL -Now there are a few different labels they have, I like this one best of the 14" straight tubes. its $115, which is an awesome price compared to any head shop or other high end tubes. http://grasscity.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/302x/5e06319eda06f020e43594a9c230972d/a/l/alt-1-9-10-250.jpg There is also the 18" version for $130 ZOB - 18" INCH - OG STRAIGHT - RASTA LABEL The only thing about this tube is that I worry it might be too big for now. You have to understand this is my first bong, and it will be used daily, I think that an extra few inches will only make it that much more of a hassle to smoke, and I want it to clear nice and quick. Plus, that label is kinda boring. But if you can convince me that the 18" is that much better than the 14" then I am interested, because I want this to be as functionable as I can make it. http://grasscity.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/302x/5e06319eda06f020e43594a9c230972d/a/l/alt_12-21-10-67.jpg Now, zob does have the stemless bong, and the micro flat disc tubes, which are both sexy, but they are $200, and if I were to go with a stemless, I would get something that was nicer and more reinforced, or a $100 weedstar. And I have no idea how those smoke. One last zob bong ZOB - 14" INCH - OG BEAKER - WHITE LABEL The 14" OG Beaker which is also $115 Now this bong is pretty sweet. I love the look of beaker bottoms, the only thing is that I hear the glass is stretched and can be thinner in beakers bottoms. I have first hand seen a zong beaker break a hole in the bottom because it accidentally tapped a table leg, still functional with duct tape, but I want to avoid something like that happening. However, if the glass is pretty solid then I really would love to have a beaker bottom. How do they hit compared to straight tubes? pros? cons? http://grasscity.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/302x/5e06319eda06f020e43594a9c230972d/a/l/alt_12-17-10-161.jpg Right now ALT isnt loading for me.... so I am gonna post some from GC that I am considering. First off The WS double bubbler with showerhead downstem. for $72! Double Bubbler Bong 2.0 with Shower-Head Diffuser - English - Grasscity.com From what I have heard, this thing is nice, 5mm glass, great hits, cheap price. Plus I would remove the logo on it for sure. This could very well be what I buy because when I look at that price its hard to deny that its not a good deal for what you get. If I saw that in a headshop for that price I would have to get it, most places would list that as a $200+ pipe. And I really want to get something with a showerhead diffuser on it. Then theres HVY 13" beaker for $100, not sure how they compare to zob bongs though. That would give me room for goodies too, I would like a new slide, and a carbon adapter. HVY Glass - 50 x 5 mm - Clear Beaker - 13.0" inch pic isnt working then a 16" for 110$ straight or beaker and a 9mm straight or beaker for $160, which has good reviews. I also have no idea how these compare to zob. Headford also has a nice bubbler which I wouldnt mind considering for $140 Headford Glass - Sand Blasted Inline Bubbler I am also to any other suggestions of nice bubblers, Its just hard to find cheaper functional ones that arnt worked glass and cost $300. Just need a little help deciding.
