This bong is a pretty rare breed. Offering a propellor percolator at the bottom of its fixed down tube (not downstem), this bong offers a seriously unique way to smoke you won’t find in many other pieces.
On top of that, it is made with extremely thick, scientific glass that is destined to last a long time as long as you are careful with it. The base is sturdy, and meant to hold this bad boy up.
Lastly, the “Charon” water pipe by Sesh Supply stands 18″ tall and features a built in ice catch for extra smooth hits.
This mini dab rig packs a punch. Standing just 7″ tall, don’t let it’s small size fool you…
The “Nyx” comes with a showerhead percolator encased in a bubble base, which filters into a passthrough chamber, before filtering out to the main chamber. This makes for a smooth smoking experience you usually will not find in such a small piece.
This is a very unique bong, not only in terms of looks, but in terms of performance also. As a recycler bong, this pipe filters smoke multiple times before delivering a hit. This offers a superior smoking experience, with both smoother and cooler smoke.
It stands 9″ tall, and is made with fumed glass, giving it that golden appearance on the outside. It comes with a great glass bowl attachment as well.

Roor was founded in the 1980s by German Martin Birzle and now is one of the most well-known bong brands across the world.

The last “R” in ROOR printed on the bong is turned to the left
Most ROORs come with a certificate or signature of the glassblower on the bong
All ROORs have a splash guard
All ROORs have only 3 ice pinchers to catch ice

You simply cannot go wrong and will not be upset if you purchase a ROOR bong they have been around for almost 40 years for a reason.
This pipe is one of many that lead people to vote Illadelph as one of the best water pipe brands year after year.
Although, these bongs do tend to be on the pricier side. As a result, Illadelph does not make our top 3, because most of their bongs are highly overpriced as a result of the following they have.
While this exclusivity and extremely high quality appeals to some, most prefer to find a piece that has better value. However, this piece is absolutely perfect in terms of its performance.

The Zobello Perc is a circular disc perc that is located near the bottom of their beaker bongs. This is just one example of how innovative this company is. They have also created a “Wubbler” which is a type of bong that is somewhat between a bubbler and water pipe.

This zany piece created by Zob Glass is one of the coolest bongs out there. Somewhat resembling a tuba in shape, this Bad Larry has some serious soul to it.
Due to the shape, this water pipe has an interesting smoking experience, being smoother than most other bongs without extensive percolation.
On top of this, the downstem and bowl are both very high quality. This 16″ tall piece is great for people who are looking for a unique water pipe. Overall, Zob Glass is a bit expensive, but the performance of their products speaks for itself.

9. Thick Ass Glass
With a name like Thick Ass Glass you pretty much need an acronym so they go with TAG.
If you purchase on of these you get exactly what you pay for, THICK ASS GLASS. These pieces are known to surprise anyone who purchases them with how thick the glass actually is.
These water pipes are made in China but the glass is of high quality and very reliable. Since these bongs are so thick they are much more reliable than a delicate bong with a thin layer of glass.
