If your gettin the bong you wont need any screens man. I dont use screens on glass either, but if you feel like you really need one then just buy whatever's there, I always get steel for some reason.

screens are more for metal crack pipes. for bongs think of the water as a really good screen.

agreed :D -no gauze in my bong hehe... pipes generally need one though to stop the burning bits hitting your throat... go for steel over brass i reckon

For your bong either go buy a nice glass bowl (glass needs no screens) or get your self a cone bowl this lets the ash fall down the stem and into the water (hehehe makes for lonely days when ur dry just scrape it and smoke and you get tore the fuck up) for the glass pipe it is a sin to put a screen in glass the whole point of a glass pipe is so that you dont have to taste metal.

You need a screen on glass pipes sometimes if they make the hole too big. If that happens you can just get a glass screen fpr 75 cents. More than half the time when my homies bought glass pieces the dude at the shop was cool enough to hook it up with a free one. I am more attracted towards brass screens for some reason. Has anyone actually tested if there was a difference?

I always smoke out of glass, and I use brass screens.I don't like steel screens cause they don't conform to the bowl easily.I buy them in bulk at my local head shop here. My glass waterbong uses no screen, however. Just H2O.

I say use screens for both. Screens help you conserve weed by preventing you from sucking any weed through the bong stem into the water or through the pipe. I suggest steel (brass tastes nasty). You might want to check out the thread "brass or steel screens"

brass for glass
steel for...

...what rhymes with steal that's funny?

Actually, try not to use screens unless absolutely neseccary. like the other guys (and girls) said, the whole point of a bong is that the water is a filter. If you wanna conserve with a bong don't clean it for a while and then empty the water through a strainer. It'll smell like shit but if you wait long enough you'll have enough stuff inside for a decent bowl or so. make sure you dry it first too.

Krazihare, I think he meant that by using a screen on a bong it prevents any weed that is still smokeable from falling down into the stem, which is a result from sucking too hard. If you had a screen then you'd get all the bud there, so maybe it is a good idea.

I however, dont use a screen on my bong, never did.

for your bong get a drop in glass gauze, it wont give you metal taste and it lasts forever. You just gotta clean it every now and then

What the fuck. ONE person in this thread knows about glass screens, and even though many people are saying theym own glass pieces, they aren't reccomending them, or even reccomending nasty ass metal screens FOR YOUR GLASS?

Definitely get glass screens if your bowl needs it. Many are meant to be used with them.
