The other night I was hanging out with some good friends. I decided to bust out my new favorite plastic bong, named Sheila. She was a remarkable sight being bright hot pink with lime green spots. Not only is “Sheila” colorful but she is lots of fun. My friend Tony took one look at her and burst out laughing.
Insulted, I asked him what he was laughing at and he pointed at my bong. He exclaimed, “That is one cheap plastic bong!”
Now I was insulted. I insisted my bong was of top-notch quality and he scoffed, clearly an unbeliever. Well, the proof is in the pudding I always say and we decided to try it out. That smoke prompted an intense discussion about the values of using glass versus an acrylic water bong for smoking.
Plastic bongs are nearly indestructible. You can toss a plastic bong around at a party and not worry about it shattering into pieces. Not to mention that plastic bongs are more affordable and are perfect for people who are new to water pipe smoking.
Glass bongs are more expensive but can come in stunning designs, which are perfect for collectors. They are also heat-resistant and are ideal for a solo smoke or a smoke with friends. Anywhere where you will not be afraid it will break.
After using the plastic bong, Tony quickly realized the error of his ways. My bong may be inexpensive, but it is made of only the best plastics and is finely constructed. Tony also realized that plastic bongs are just as great for smoking as the more expensive glass pieces he owns. It was a win-win situation for us both!
Do you prefer smoking out of glass or plastic bongs?
