Remember, you have to get the resin out of every single chamber (and the base) when cleaning the bong. We found it best to clean the base first before moving onto the chambers. When you empty the bong water, you will notice that there is still a little bit of water left in the chambers. Turn your bong upside down as many times as you need to drain the water completely.
Then, pour salt into the base and a large amount of salt into the top to ensure it gets to all the chambers. Next, add some isopropyl alcohol through the top and base, and shake the bong. Dump all of the dirty water out, and remember — you’ll have to work a bit to get rid of the water in the chambers. You can buy Black Leaf bongs online and choose between their cylinder water pipes and beaker bongs. Most of the company’s designs are easier to clean than the Beaker Base 6, with the simpler ones ensuring that it’s less of a headache to keep your piece looking neat and tidy. While Black Leaf bongs are arguably best for moderate users, experienced smokers will also find a lot to like about the brand’s large range. When you buy a Blaze Glass bong, you are investing in a quality piece of work made from premium-grade, stress-relieved 3.1 borosilicate glass.
The company claims that their glass is comparable to the Duran Glass used by industrial lab pieces like beakers and Erlenmeyer flasks. Each piece has a minimum thickness of 5mm and uses a ground glass joint of 14.5mm or 18mm. Blaze is part of a larger brand (Near Dark) that has been one of the world’s leading providers of headshop equipment for over 20 years. Although the firm is part of the German brand Near Dark, all of their glass water pipes are made in Asia by specialist glass blowers. Every Blaze Glass bong’s design is aided by the detailed study of geometry, and the team has worked hard to find out the aspects of bong design that are most impactful on performance. As a result, you should experience exceptional flavor with every hit. Moreover, Blaze Glass is adamant that all cracked bongs belong in the bin, which is why it leaves no stone unturned to guarantee an unmatched level of craftsmanship. While you can mix and match with Blaze Glass, we would prefer to focus on the multi-level microscope bong. It is 13.8 inches high and uses a fixed downstem with a 14.5mm male joint. It also comes with a removable 14.mm female herb bowl, which is a perfect fit for the male joint. This bowl is extremely thick and the glass marble on the side prevents unwanted crumbs and ash from making their way into the water. The quad rocket diffused percolator filters the smoke through its slits and is located in the bong’s lower chamber. When you light up, the smoke will travel through the connecting tube, into the neck of the bong, and then through the slits of the percolator (which also acts as a splashguard). As a result of this design, you benefit from a smooth yet flavorful hit as your smoke is supercooled and filtered by the time it reaches your lips. The microscope bong has an exceedingly thick base, which is great for stability. We also thoroughly enjoyed using the mouthpiece, as it has pushed glass (called marias) on its underside which ensures you have a good grip of the device. As well as having a practical use, the grip also looks stunning. Blaze Glass is no doubt one of the top bong makers in the industry. Most of its products are extremely customizable, such as the Ice Bong (with its Spiral Percolators), so you can tweak your piece until you find that perfect arrangement that suits you best. The brand’s microscope bong is a fabulously designed piece that will look awesome in any collection, and more importantly, it provides you with filtered hits that you can enjoy for years on end. Germany is known for a lot of great things, but few people realize just how much of an impact the country has had on the world of glass bong production. The EHLE brand was formed back in the 1950s and has been creating high-quality glass instruments for over 60 years.
Thomas Ehle took over the family business in 1988, and quickly shifted focus onto the high-grade glass bongs and water pipes market from the more “mainstream” creations that they had been developing over previous years. EHLE has become known for their fine, elegant designs just as much as they have for the durability of their premium-grade glass bongs for sale. All EHLE Glass bongs are made with advanced glassmaking techniques (such as computer-controlled cooling and tempering processes), while also using premium level borosilicate glass. To ensure the brand keeps its standards high, it produces its bong and pipes in low volume, and despite the huge demand for a limited supply, the company manages to keep its prices somewhat competitive. Its glass straight cylinder bong (250 mL) is a prime example of EHLE’s superior quality – it is 12.5 inches high with a joint size of 18.8mm, and should be available for under $100 online. To be frank, pictures of this bong don’t do it justice. You have to hold it in your hand to fully appreciate the quality of craftsmanship that goes into each piece.
This particular bong includes the famous EHLE glass signature, which is a logo with an orange outline. Accessories include a non-diffuser downstem and a funnel-shaped bowl, which is all you need to start smoking! It offers smooth and luxurious hits with the kind of flavor that makes you wonder how in the hell you ever lived without a quality bong . In the world of glass bongs and water pipes, EHLE is the byword for ‘quality’. You can purchase its range of bongs on the EHLE Glass official website, which should translate from German to English automatically.
