Buying glass
    #295288 - 10/11/09 01:06 PM (7 years, 1 month ago)

Anyone know a good place to buy glass online?  I want a bong that is cheap.  Not really looking for a name brand just something that is really functional.  If I don't spend a shit ton on the bong itself I can trick it out later with an ash catcher and good bowls etc.  Any recommendations?

most of those carry expensive name brand pieces

maybe it would help if you told us what kind of a price range you were looking at?

I refuse to give out links where people will get ripped off on shitty china glass :snub:
:rastamon:

but yeah, all the links in this thread are good, if you cant find a tube in your price range check out the full melt bubble forums in elcharros post

i dunno man I'm kinda divided on the china glass argument

I mean seriously not all of it is shitty and you're not exactly getting ripped off when you're paying a fraction of the price.

Yeah it's better to keep our money in our own economy but if you're going to boycott everything made in china then you might as well get rid of your computers and televisions and just about everything else in your home while you're at it.

yes american glass is undoubtedly better quality but it's also like 4x as expensive and some people don't mind the bang for the buck from china

I listened to that just about every time I would smoke my bong after I bought it for a few months

Most china glass websites ive seen will charge $200 easily for a shitty single perc bong

and then the glass is like 2mm thick if your lucky, ive broken countless china bowls in ways they never should have broken

I mean I still buy it every once in a while, I just dont expect it to last long, someones first nice bong purchase should last forever  :bonghit:

cute bowl usg.  I am looking to spend less than $200.  As I said above I'm all about function, not looks or durability or anything like that.

in that case you could probably get a no brand inline tube, those are sick, and usually ~ $150 - 250

gorillaglass sells chinese perc'd tubes for like $90 or so. they have a 12 item and $150 order minimum though because they're trying to remain a wholesale vendor. you can just get like a bong and a a box of papers or something for the 12 item minimum though.

best bet is really going to be the fullmelt glass market for a really good quality and still affordable piece but all of these links are going to have something in that range

their bongs are Chinese made... but definitely in your price range. percs and all that.

a perc is not a perc though. cheap percs probably will probably have more drag and less filtration. less functional.


the way i look at it. if you plan to keep it awhile and don't plan on breaking it. invest in a nicer bong. if you're a klutz though or plan to have the bong out at parties, get something cheap! i can tell you one thing, my bong is staying in my room when i have a party, and no one is hitting it! :lol: why it's always nice to have more than one bong :wink:

Wicked Sands is a good company, they have some for $200 that are clear tiny tubes as well... on shinobi and bitfreakglass (cheaper on bfg)

Thanks for the help.  I think ima just go with some local head shop.  They seem to have similar deals to any of these websites.  I never appreciated the head shops on Haight St. or Telegraph Ave until I moved here and the stores are more expensive.  Oh well.

you're lucky you have headshops. no one in my area sells bongs... it's illegal or some shit. i used to think my headshops in my college town were overpriced and a rip but at least they were there... they at least had PHX and illadelph... i miss it now :frown:
