When you’ve smoked a bong, you’ll know why it remains as one of the popular smoking devices in the market. The efficiency of the water filtration with the help of percs gives you smooth, great-tasting hits that are worlds different from dry pipes. However, you can push that experience up a notch by getting an ice bong.
An Ice bong is a water pipe that has an ice catcher inside the neck or smoke chamber. It’s usually almost immediately located right above where the water and smoke chamber meet. Depending on the bong brand, the ice catcher can be 2-4 arms pointing inwards to catch the ice. You’ll see such ice pinchers in bongs like this Pulsar Swiss Perc Bong with Ice Catcher. Some have like this Grav Labs Beaker Bong has a proprietary ice pincher that doubles as a splashguard.
To fully appreciate your tube bong with an ice catcher, you need to check out the following:
These types of bongs usually come with 3 arms, allowing you to hold the ice long before they fall into the chamber as they melt. However, some glass bongs have thicker glass and therefore, can’t accommodate more than two arms. Look through the mouthpiece and gauge the size of the airpath. A larger gap between the teeth or inner walls means bigger ice for your water chamber.
The farther the ice pincer from the mouthpiece, the more ice you can add. This, of course, transcends to a more refreshing smoking experience because you have more ice to cool down your smoke.
You can use the bong as a regular water pipe, or by adding ice to get the full advantage.
The longer the smoke travels through the ice, the cooler the smoke will be. This is why most bongs with ice catchers are tall for better ice capacity and cooler smoking experience.
As ice melts, water will fill up the water chamber below. you need to keep an eye on the water level. Too much water can cause backsplash, dull the taste of your smoke, or make it hard for you to pull.
