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. Once you hold an EHLE Glass bong, you’ll know you’ve made the right decision, and the high-quality performance only confirms it. Also known as GG, Grace Glass bongs are widely sought after and the Amsterdam-based company has been in operation since 2010. At present, it has more than 300 products and they are all available directly from the firm’s warehouse. Since its formation, GG has become one of the glass paraphernalia market leaders and because of its location in the “very liberal” city of Amsterdam, the company continues to have its finger on the pulse in the world of weed and bongs. GG offers an immense number of products including water pipes, ash catchers, dab rigs, and dab tools, and you can buy a Grace Glass bong with or without a percolator. As well as upgrading old designs, the company is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of the industry and is always looking to bring new concepts to the market. Our Grace Glass review will focus on its Vapor Cane bong, which is a straight, elegant piece that’s designed for use with oils, dry herbs, or concentrates. It comes with two honeycomb disc percolators, a fixed downstem with an 18.8mm male joint, a turbine disc percolator, a glass nail, a female vapor dome, and a removable 18.8mm female herb bowl complete with roll stoppers. The honeycomb disc is responsible for breaking the smoke into a whole lot of bubbles, and as a result, the smoke is filtered and cooled as it travels up the tube.
Meanwhile, the turbine disc’s blades are created at a specific angle to turn the water into a kind of vortex, which to be honest is amazing to witness (and not to mention it offers phenomenal flavor). The honeycomb disc on top forces the vapor through the tiny holes, which provide additional filtration. In the end, I was blown away by the cleanness and coolness of the hit. The Cane GG Vapor bong is 17.3 inches high and made from 5mm thick borosilicate glass, and you can choose to keep it simple by opting for the clear glass version, or you can treat yourself by going with one of the versions containing colored accents. There is no doubt about it – Grace Glass is one of the finest sellers of glass paraphernalia on the market. While you should always expect to pay for premium quality bongs, most of the GG range is available for less than $150, with some excellent items on sale for under $100. Aside from the Vapor bong, my favorite GG piece is the Spiral Perc Bong.
Once again, you see the spiraling helix work its magic, which is mesmerizing. It draws in smoke as you hit it, and both of the helices funnel towards the top of the bong.
