Without even thinking about pipes, chillums, steam rollers, vaporizers, or any other devices used for smoking, shopping for bongs can be overwhelming. There are so many varieties to choose from including glass, acrylic/ plastic, ceramic, and wooden (bamboo, for the most part). Glass is classic, of course, and it’s a material that is hard to go wrong with.
If this is your first bong, be mindful of your lung capacity. If you buy a bong with too many percs or one that is too tall for you to clear nicely, you won’t be satisfied. If you never fill the chamber in your bong with smoke, you’re not maximizing the potential of your piece. On the other hand, if you fill the chamber but are unable to clear it in one hit, you are left with less-than-fresh smoke, which can make for a stale tasting second hit.

Below we will talk about a few advantages you are going to get when you smoke with a water pipe compared to just smoking with a dry pipe:
Advantages of Using Water Pipes
Water pipes are easy to use, even if you are new to smoking. The bubbles that the water pipe is going to produce when you inhale are going to make the smoke smoother on your throat than even the average cigarette or cigar.
You will want to clean your glass water pipe regularly. You do not want to reuse the dirty water or cleaning solutions because it is not healthy to do so. If you neglect to clean your glass bong it is going to cancel out part of the filtering effect that you are getting when you are going with a glass water pipe or dab rig.

If you’re planning on being the only one to use your bong and are confident that it will be kept safe, you should try out a really technical bong. Although these can get expensive, the cool, clean hits they produce, and the optimal THC absorption are worth the extra money.
Generally, technical pieces mean glass; attachments, diffusers, percs, splash guards, ice catchers, and ash catchers also come to mind. Glass that is fragile or precarious is also best applied to personal or controlled use, and these pieces remain successful because of their intricate and often beautiful designs.
Glass thickness is very important because it decides on how long your bong lasts. The thicker the better obviously but also try to take into account the environment the bong is going to be in. If it’s going to be safe and stay in only one room, don’t worry about thickness as much. If you plan on bringing it with you everywhere or have clumsy friends, try to get the thickest glass. The thinnest glass starts at 2-3mm then moves up to 3-5mm is your average thickness. Then glass 5-7mm is pretty darn thick and hard to break. Choose anywhere above 3.5mm glass thickness and you should be fine.
Glass water pipes are great for casual use. Your glass water pipe or bubbler filters out a number of carcinogens every time you inhale which is going to be very important. Glass water pipes are going to drive the smoke deeper and faster into your lungs, so you should always use your glass water pipe in moderation if you want to avoid canceling out these health benefits with overusing it.

When you dab, you are not going to have to pull a bowl over in order to clear the chamber. The nail in the oil rig is going to allow air to constantly pass through the piece. Small mouthpieces are not going to dampen your chances of finishing a dab but are going to allow you to truly appreciate the taste of the vapor you are smoking.
Smaller Oil Rigs
If you have a smaller oil rig, it is going to also theoretically provide you with more flavor. There is no real reason you have to use a big water pipe as a dab rig. The more volume you have means that the more room you are going to have for the vapor to lose potency and dissipate. To get the best flavor, you may want to look for glass that is on the smaller side.
