ABOUT STRAIGHT TUBE BONGS
For buyers looking for a simpler or more traditional look, straight tubes and beaker base water pipes are the way to go.
Not only will these designs be easier for beginners to master, but some styles also offer versatility in separate parts and accessories.
WHAT ARE STRAIGHT TUBE BONGS?
The straight tube bong is one of two styles of water pipes.
An iconic vertical look, the straight tube is made from a single or couple of pieces of borosilicate glass tubing.
Cut with a lathe machine; the bong stands straight up and upright.
Traditionally a great table top piece, the straight tube usually has less volume than a beaker bong, which can be better for lung capacity.
Some folks think that a straight tube is more prone to tipping than their beaker base counterparts - but this is just a myth.
Most straight tubes have great pedestal bases, which are extremely secure.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Straight shooters or Tubes have a long, straight neck fixed to the water chamber of your piece and are made from quality glass or silicone with either a fixed or removable downstem percolator.
Straight Tubes are a preferred method for smoking herb but can function as a wax bong too!
The elongated neck provides an easy-to-grip handle and gives glass artists the ability to include multiple stacked arms and tree percolators, unique splash guards, drains, and many other creative options.
FOR WHOM STRAIGHT TUBE BONGS ARE BEST?
Straight tubes come in various heights, styles, and glass thickness; many styles include ice pinches that provide extra cooled hits before inhalation, perfect for those who feel more sensitive to a larger hit.
Unlike some beaker-style bongs, the straight tube bongs may be more likely to come equipped with additional features like ice catchers, percolators like the showerhead and the UFO, and various chambers.
These types of bongs can also have a removable downstem which is a great feature.
Another plus about a straight tube bong is that since there is less space inside the chamber, it can make it easier to clear the chamber of smoke without pulling as hard.
However, that distinction can vary depending on the size of the straight tube bong.
Just remember to purchase an accessory that fits your water pipe joint size and shape.
Straight tube water pipes will hold less water than beaker base pipes, but many users prefer the lighter weight and style.
