Rated 4.55 / 5.0 from 5818 reviews.

Bongs, or glass water pipes, are a widely embraced way of smoking your favorite flowers and tobacco. They're the analog tools of the smoking world, and there's a reason they've been around so long: Glass water bongs filter and cool dry herbs or tobacco to provide a smooth smoking experience. internal percolators to create a smooth smoke. Bongs come in a 10mm, 14mm, or 18mm joint size, and joints can be either male or female.

If you’re on the market for a new bong and want to match your old slide or downstem to it, make sure you know what size you’re looking for! (If you need to touch up on joint sizes and gender, check out this Knowledge Base article.)

There are many different varieties of glass bongs available on the market. From straightforward scientific styles such as the straight tube and beaker to elaborate functionals like recyclers with propellor percolators, Smoke Cartel has an excellent selection of water pipes. Shop by perc or size to find the pipe of your dreams.

Straight Tube and Beaker Base Water Pipes

For buyers looking for a simpler or more traditional look, straight tubes and beaker base water pipes are the way to go. Not only will these designs be easier for beginners to master, but some styles also offer versatility in separate parts and accessories. Water pipes with removable downstems allow you to switch this part with a dabbing nail or another accessory to use with other substances. Just remember to purchase an accessory that fits your water pipe joint size and shape. Straight tube water pipes will hold less water than beaker base pipes, but may offer users a better dabbing experience.


For an extra smooth hit, buyers tend to lean toward recyclers. These water pipes filter the water carrying the vapor up through a chamber close to the mouthpiece, release the vapor for the user to inhale, and dump the water back down to the base to be “recycled” again. This allows for the vapor to cool off in the water for longer and brings the vapor closer to the mouthpiece than other pipes permit. Recyclers tend to work with concentrates the best, but can also be used with flower and herb. These pieces may look daunting, but they are fairly simple once the user familiarizes themselves with all of the parts.

Heady Pieces

More for style than added function, any user is bound to find an elaborate water pipe to demonstrate their unique personality. Although these pieces tend to be a bit more pricey, some users find the artistic nature of their water pipe just as important as the function it serves in their experience as a whole. Heady pieces can be found in just about any style of pipe, so choose one you like best and then pick your favorite design.

Extra Features and Accessories

Some water pipes include an ice pinch as part of their tube design, which give users an extra layer of cooling before the vapor reaches the mouthpiece. The pinch holds the ice in the tube part of the pipe so you get the best cooling effect before inhalation. Some people prefer inhaling warm vapor; but if you’re a cool vapor person, an ice pinch will be a necessary pipe feature.

Splash guards are handy in preventing the water from the base of the pipe reaching your lips as you inhale. The splash guard includes slits so vapor can still pass through, but the top is domed so the water falls back into the base of the pipe.

Downstems are an essential component of water pipes. If your water pipe features a removable downstem, it’s probably a diffused downstem. These include tiny slits or holes to break up the smoke before it enters the water. The more bubbles that are created by the downstem, the more surface area the vapor has to cool before it enters the tube for inhalation. If your downstem is non-removable, your water pipe will probably include a type of percolator. There are many percolators on the market, such as showerhead percolators or honeycomb percolators, and you may need to experiment to find the one you like the best.
