    i kno plastic bongs are WAY cheaper, but other than the fact that glass itself is just more expensive, is there any advantage to having a glass bong versus a plastic bong? i have a glass one just under a foot high but i wanna get one 18' or so high, and plastic seems like the way to go cause i can get one way cheaper, plus the bottom comes off for cleaning and it wont break.

    thoughts? is there an advantage of havin a glass bong?

    No question if you are planning on being a regular smoker I would suggest a glass bong

    I would say if you want to get an acrylic bong make it at leaast a 4 footer-6ft you can get one for about $40,they are loads of fun.An acrylic bong under a foot seems silly and lame unless there is a gas mask attached to that bong:D

    Glass is the way to go, no doubt

    plastic certainly has it's advantages, namely it's not fragile. You don't run nearly the risk of it falling or getting knocked over and *crash*, there goes your investment.

    But as for performance and, in my opinion, looks, you just can't beat a nice glass piece

    Taste the weed as its meant to be tasted, and go with the glass!

    Plastic is way more durable and easier to travel with, but glass hits a LOT better.

    Isn't the bowl the only bit that really matters, taste-wise? So wouldn't the ideal, then, be an acrylic bong (for cost reduction) with a glass bowl (for flavour/smoothness)?

    There are really only 2 things that are better about plastic IMO... price and harder to break. That's it.

    I like hitting glass bongs one hundred times better than a plastic bong. In my expiriance glass hits harder and gets you higher for longer. But if you are concerned with price and you are not going to be using it everyday then acrylic would still get the job done.

    Ok while agree that glass is nicer than plastic (hell they still even sell coke in glass bottles) you are wrong in thinking it gets you higher. There is no way it can get you higher. Any additional high would be purley your brain playing tricks on yourself.

    Well acrylic does absorb smoke, but if you can tell the difference you could rent yourself out as a lab instrument.

    Try them out, you might notice a difference, you may notice nothing at all. If you can, get two, keep the glass in a permanent location such as you room, bring the plastic one with you camping or partying. It's a real fucking bummer when your shit breaks. :mad:
