Today I'm going to talk a little about my bong, which still doesn't have a name! Any ideas?
The glass is really thick, at least 7mm, probably 9. After I broke my last bong (horrible experience) I knew I needed a thick piece so it wouldn't happen again. Sooo I went to my local headshop and saw this monster. HiSi makes pieces that are much crazier than this, but like I said I like 'em like I like my women, uncomplicated and low-maintenance. I wound up paying 140, which is a little pricey imo for a bong with one chamber), but it is thick as hell. I plan on having this for a looong time.
It's glass on glass in case you didn't notice. The joint and base are also really thick and sturdy. Most cheaper bongs usually have thin bases and joints because of the way they are blown, but no HiSi's! The ice catchers (covered by my hand) are also really thick. This thing is so thick that it is seriously looks like a whole new atmosphere in the chamber when milking it. I'm sure if that will make sense to everyone but I can't think of any other way to describe it. The downstown, which is defused of course, takes it from an 18mm to a 14mm. If I ever want to change to a bigger bowl all I have to do is buy a new downstem.
When ripping this you can barely feel the pull. It's so freakin smooth its rediculous. When I put ice in it, no one coughs because it delivers super smooth, fat rips! It actually hits so nice that it's dangerous. It allows for as big of hit as you can take. Noobs wind up smoking the whole bowl and coughing out a lung for an hour, then melting into the couch.
Overall this bong is awesome. Resin builds up kinda fast but that's true with any bong unless you clean it all the time. That's really the only downside.
On the flip side of things, here a video of some friends of mine tearing up a local mountain!
