Consider the Icebong with HoneyComb Arm Tree Percolator

If you’re looking for a bong whose glass has a unique density providing structural integrity, and varied coefficients of thermal expansion, then the Icebong with HoneyComb & 2×10 Arm Tree Percolator is for you!  Not sure what the hell I’m talking about?  Allow me to explain.  This bong won’t break even though it can get really freaking hot (holding a lighter up to it while burning ganja), and really freaking cold (like packing it with ice).

Borosilicate Glass

That’s because the Icebong with HoneyComb & 2x 10-Arm Tree Percolator is made from  Borosilicate glass,  a sturdy, thick glass that can withstand extreme temperatures without cracking.  While many kinds of glass can withstand both the very hot and the very cold, not many kinds of glass can withstand both extremes simultaneously, as this bong’s functionality demands.  Basic silicate glass is made from sand, limestone and sodium carbonate.  Borosilicate glass is produced with those same ingredients but include boric oxide in the mix.

If your too high to care about these particulars, then simply hear this, this Icebong is seriously sturdy.  It feels nice and thick to hold and the beautiful beadwork that tops the piece provides an excellent grip so that you won’t easily drop this heavy bong.

The only structural drawback, in my opinion, is the thin bowl.  I’m not convinced it will hold up nearly as long as the bong itself.  It feels a little fragile.  Not to mention, it’s on the small side.  But, I’m quite certain that it is easily and affordably replaced, so worry not.

But enough about glass.  Let’s talk about the unbelievably smooth hit you’ll  get from the Icebong with its HoneyComb & 2x 10-Arm Tree Percolator.  You’ll get a truly gorgeous smoke cooled down by the tree percolator and the ice, with very minor drag for such a large percolator.

There is an undeniable satisfaction in watching this bong fill up.  Although I am partial to more colorful designs, there is no denying that this sleek, clear, seamless glass is an awesome thing to behold.  Fun to fill up, fun to clear out.

At around $225, this bong is certainly an investment.  Considering the cost, the bulk, and the connoisseurship required to appreciate it, I’d say this bong is not for novice puffers.  But if you are looking for a beautiful and unique addition to your collection, and cool healthy smoke is your thing, than this is the bong for you.  Whole- heartedly recommended.
