Features of this Glass Water Bong

Bent Neck

There are many advantages to a bent neck design.  Some people prefer it because of the aesthetics, but the bent neck serves an important function in some pieces.  Because of the angle, it prevents splash-back into your mouth.

Cyclone Perc

These percolators are discs with angled cuts around the sides.  When water is pulled through them, it's forced to spin in a cyclone fashion creating a whirlpool effect.  That's why they've earned the name of cyclones or "turbines".

Splash Guard

A splash guard is always a nice feature to have.  True to their name, splash guards protect you from splashback from any water when you're pulling.  No splashback means no nasty water in your mouth.
