Sobe bong pros and cons: Pros: Cool temperature hits Really good for Solar Hits (more on this later) Big hits Cheap equipment. A soBe is like $2. Not too suspicious looking Very reusable and easy to clean with the regular bong cleaning method. Bong water doesn't get as gross. Cons: When baked, it gets increasingly hard to assemble everything (filling it with water, weed, ice, etc.) Need to have an area where water can spill out everywhere or a big bucket to catch it. Uses 20 oz of water each hit unless you reuse the water. SoBe is switching to plastic so it may be tough to get your hands on a glass one. Alot of people think that SoBe is going to switch back to glass bottles in the near future though. Solar Hits are the preferred way to light this, and they can only be done in the bright sunlight. Lighters will work ok, but the smoke wont taste as delicious. To make a gravity bong out of a SoBe bottle is actually a very simple process. Things Needed: GLASS Sobe bottle. Plastic will not work to the best of my knowledge. Phillips Head Screw-driver Water Weed the more dank the better Urge to get baked Build: Find the words encircling the cercomfrance of the bottom of the bottle. "HEALTHY REFRESHMENT" it says twice. In the word "REFRESHMENT" You must see "REFRE" right? Haha well under one of the REFERs is a mysterious indent. Now take your trusty Phillips head and bash in that indent, making a small hole. Remove cap off bottle, place on table geckos face up. Tap a bunch of small holes in the center of the cap. This is where the weed goes. Congrats! your soBe bong is now complete. How to Use: Remove cap and fill a bowl around where the holes are, covering all of them pretty snugly with delicious weed. [Optional for best results:] Slip 3 or 4 pieces of ice into the bottle. Place finger over the REFER hole. Fill bottle as much as possible with ice cold water. Carefully screw the weed-filled cap onto the top of the bottle. Find an area or a bucket where water can spill out of the lower hole. Sinks work well. Light the weed with one hand while slowly draining the water out the lower hole. The suction of the water going down will suck the smoke down into the bottle. While draining, use your lower thumb to block the water coming out full speed. Lower speeds are better. Once all water is drained, remove the lid and put your mouth on the opening and suck like its a bong. Clear it. Hold and inhale then exhale. You can see that you absorbed a lot of the smoke. Repeat!
