So, you’re in the market for a brand new water pipe! You want your first one, or you’re adding to a collection - either way you’re beaming with excitement about your brand new piece and can’t wait to get your hands (and mouth) on it.
You walk into the smoke shop and are immediately greeted by a sense of overwhelm. The walls are lined with shelves and shelves of glass pieces. All different shapes, sizes, styles and price points to choose from. Where do you start?
Maybe you love perusing and spending some time looking at all the art before landing on your decision. But if you’re looking for a little guidance, keep reading for a few options to consider before stopping in and making your choice (psst… I saved the best for last!)
CLASSIC BEAKER STYLE
Do you love the look of a classic beaker? While these options don’t offer percolation to filter your smoke, they do offer a nice clean look. They also stand sturdier on flat surfaces and are often more affordable than other more complicated models. Pop some ice down the top of the tube to cool the smoke and enjoy your classic waterpipe!
Straight tube styles seem to be all the rage right now, so this might be for you if you want something a little fancier. These often have more percolators included, giving you that extra filtration. If you’re the collecting type, having at least one straight tube pipe does wonders for balancing out a shelf of glass!
BENT NECK MINI
When choosing your water pipe, the size you’re looking for should definitely be considered. Don’t have the room for a big beaker or straight tube? Try these smaller options, some of which do include percolation. The concern for this size of pipe is often getting your face too close to the flame. But the bent neck style helps mitigate that, putting more distance between your mouth and the head piece.
If you’re the “go big or go home” type - our Zong collection is most definitely for you. These beasts are a truly unique design and will add immense flare to any collection. Watch the smoke zig zag through the clear glass giant - or bring a pop of color to your smoking location with the matte options. You can’t go wrong with a Zong, I swear you won’t want to smoke out of anything else!
We pride ourselves on having a wide range of different options when it comes to glass. It’s a blessing and a curse to have so much to choose from! I hope this article gives you some options to consider, and we can’t wait for you to visit us in store and go home with the perfect piece.
