Smoking experiences can be enhanced with the right bong. Choosing the perfect bong isn’t as simple as it seems. There are many differences in the variety of bongs that can affect your smoking experience. The correct size of the bong can affect the drag experience; the number of percolators in the bong will affect the flavor and the drag. The cleanliness of the bong and the handling has to be taken care of as well.
The correct size of the bong

You must have heard the saying, “Size doesn’t matter.” It sure does apply to the bong when people say bigger bongs are better. New smokers can’t tell better bong from the other, and it can also be difficult for people who roll their own smokes to find a perfect bong. Which is why bigger bongs might not be that enjoyable to new smokers because it gives you a big hit, and when you are not used to it, it can be overwhelming.
Large bongs provide extra filtration and cooling, but the flavor can be lost in the midst. Because of that, choosing a smaller bong is quite the option. It has many benefits. One being that it maintains the flavor profile throughout the smoke and are often called “flavor savers.” Another thing is that, because it is smaller, it is cheaper, so you don’t have to shell out a lot more than needed on the bong itself. The small size also means that they are quite easy to pack and travel with.
The fragility of the bong
Bongs break easily when dropped and hit with enough force. If you are clumsy and tend to drop a lot of stuff then getting a silicone bong is the best thing to do. Silicone bongs are made from food grade silicon for it to be safe to use. Another benefit is that it is easier to store and carry because it can be folded and stowed away.
The number of percolators
Percolators are additional chambers in the bong. Additional chambers provide additional filtration. Additional chambers increase the smoothness. A bong with multiple percolators isn’t a good idea for new smokers because although the smoothness increases, the drag increases as well. It means that it becomes more difficult to inhale the smoke and you will require forceful inhalation which isn’t exactly a good idea for a new smoker.
Care and maintenance of the bong
Like any other thing you use frequently, your bong needs to be cleaned and maintained too. Resin and tar build up with use in the chambers of the bang, affecting the taste and hygiene of the bong. Large bongs, bongs with multiple percolators are difficult to clean. Small bongs, bongs with less number of percolators are easier to care for. Change the bong water for every time as well, maintain the hygiene as much as you can. Finding the perfect bong depends on your experience as a smoker, taking that into account select the right size, with the right number or percolators, and the right material, and you are good to go.
