Tired of cheap, fragile, made-in-China weed bongs? The best glass bongs are quality controlled and never mass-produced. You should be able to find the best bongs at only the top smoke shops in your state or online. If you’re looking for the most affordable glass, keep looking. You get what you pay for and what you’ll find on this list is the best glass weed bongs when it comes to quality control and flawless function. We’ll go over the pros, cons and prices to help you make your choice.

10. HiSi Double Geyser Perc

10 Best Glass Bongs On The Market

HiSi is short for highly scientific. All of their bongs and glass accessories look like they belong in a laboratory.

The Price
$420.00

The Good
One of the best things about the HiSi Double Geyser is the fact that it comes with a diffused down stem. This bong comes with black plastic caps on the base of the beaker that make it easy to pour out dirty water. The HiSi team has some of the best percolators in the game—especially if you want something that will bubble to the top. The double geysers shoot water up the center of the piece for a smooth smoke.

The Bad
The tiny hole percs can get clogged after a few uses. You’ll have to clean your HiSi more often than other pieces if you want to keep it functioning at 100.

9. Zob 18 Inch UFO Inline

Zob is a glass company with a studio in the United States. They make affordable but durable glass with German designed percolators.

The Price
$349.99

The Good
The Zob 18 Inch UFO and inline percolator bong is one of the best in its price range. For $350, you get thick glass and expertly designed percs.

The Bad
Since the bong is so large, it requires extra lung capacity to milk and clear. Your lungs will get a workout with this one.

8. Leisure Brick Stack Klein

Leisure Glass is owned and run by a well-known Southern California glass blower named Luke Wilson. Luke has been blowing glass for over a decade, and his company focuses on scientific-style glass.

The Price
$420.00

The Good
If you’re looking for some high-end glass that will work perfectly as both a flower bong and an oil rig, check out the Leisure Glass Swiss Tree Incycler. Tons of percolation in a medium-sized piece. Great for dry herbs and concentrates.

The Bad
If you pull too hard when you’re clearing it, water will cyclone up the neck and into your mouth.

7. Pulse Glass Barrel Perc Incycler

Pulse Glass Incycler in action!!! Got to love this beast!!! From our family to yours!!! -Pulse

A post shared by Mellow Yellow (@mellowyellowlaredo) on

Pulse is an award-winning American glass company. They’ve got several unique designs and have been trying their hand at sandblasting, etching and sculpting glass. You can expect some of the best function available today with one of the classiest designs.

The Price
$630.00

The Good
Comes with a slide for dry herbs, but it is a female piece, which makes it easy to convert to a dab rig. Recycling makes hits smoother in the throat and lungs. If that isn’t enough, the percolator adds another level of diffusion to cool your smoke.

The Bad
The percolator has tons of tiny slits that will clog up after a few uses. You’ll have to clean this piece regularly to ensure optimal function.

6. MGW Glass Stemless Double Circ

MGW Glassworks is a NY-based company that has been making high-quality glass for dry herbs and concentrates for a while.

The Price
$345.00

The Good
Comes with a sturdy slide for smoking flowers. Two percolators provide double diffusion for a smoother hit. There is a splash guard that prevents any water from shooting up into your mouth.

The Bad
It can be hard to clean inside the dome of each circ perc. You may need to use a cleaner that has a salt or some type of abrasive to scrub any caked-on resin off.

5. Beta Glass Labs Omega

10 Best Glass Bongs On The Market

One of the newer names in the game, Beta Glass Labs is quickly gaining popularity. Their designs all recycle water for a smoother hit every time.

The Price
$499.99

The Good
Beta Glass Labs uses German Schott Glass to make all of their pieces. The Omega is their sturdiest piece with thick glass all around. Smoke bubbles through the first perc and gets filtered another time through the holes in the body. Finally, water and smoke find their way to the top chamber where they continuously recycle for a smooth filtered hit.

This piece is perfect for anyone who’s tired of hunching over to hit their piece. The bent neck and height of the piece make it easy to take hits without straining your back. The best part is the clear glass Omega is affordable with phenomenal function.

The Bad
Because of all the Omega’s size and the amount of traveling the water has to do, it will probably take more than one breath to clear a bowl or dab.

4. Mobius Stereo Matrix

The founder of Mobius, John, has been blowing glass since 1999. He started the company in 2010 and has been bringing innovative glass percs to the masses.

The Price
$420.00

The Good
Mobius has many innovative percolators including a stereo matrix diffuser. There are tons of holes for diffusion, so you get a smooth hit every time. The piece is easy to clear when filled with smoke as well.

The Bad
The holes on the matrix stereo percolator are all over and tiny, so they clog up easily. You’re going to have to clean this piece regularly if you want there to be a minimal drag.

3. Mothership Exosphere

Mothership is as high-end as a glass company gets. Only select head shops carry their products, and it’s hard to keep them on shelves for a long time.

The Price
$5450.00

The Good
For a long time, Mothership glass has been the highest-end bong brand on the market. Only a select few smoke shops across the United States are allowed to order their products. Their bongs don’t usually sit on shelves for more than a day. However, the prices are ridiculously high, and they are not easy to find brand new.

The Exosphere has Mothership’s signature seed of life percolators, and the body of the bong is a percolator as well. Mothership is one of the most mimicked companies in the industry. Many companies and glass blowers are paying their bills using Mothership’s designs. However, the one thing they can’t mimic is the seed of life percolators.

The Bad
The price is ridiculous when compared to any other glass company. In the past, you could purchase a Mothership brand new and easily sell it for more than you paid. However, the after-sale value has been decreasing. Nowadays, you’ll be lucky to break even.

2. Sovereignty Peyote Pillar

Sovereignty Glass entered the American glass production scene in 2007, and their innovative percolators have achieved fame in the glass community.

The Price
$1,170.00

The Good
If you’re looking for a large glass tube for smoking dry herbs, Sovereignty is definitely worth looking into. They have the straight style of an OG tube, but they also have their own unique peyote pillar percolator design. Smoke is diffused through a “peyote ball” that has several holes in it. Bubbles start to stack on top of each other until they reach the top of the main chamber. You won’t have to worry about swallowing water because there is a bend before the smoke gets to you.

The Bad
There’s a slight drag, and you’ll need a decent lung capacity to milk and clear it in one hit.

1. Toro Full Size 7 to 13 Arm

Quick snap #toroglass #torocrew #torogang #torofullsize #toro713 #

A post shared by Herbert D. Stroyer/Pistil Pete (@kg_soloman420) on

Toro Glass, out of upstate New York, has been making a name for themselves in the glass blowing game. They have some of the best functioning, scientific-style bongs and rigs on the market today.

The Price
$830.00

The Good
The Toro 7 Arm To 13 Arm tube is one of the best bongs on the market. Every Toro piece has flawless percolation and function. In fact, they constantly come up with new unique color combinations, which make each piece a collectible. Smoke gets filtered through water, not once, but twice through several tree arm percolators. The straight tube design makes it easier to clear and less likely to break if the bottom bumps something hard. Even if the base gets chipped, the function won’t change.

The Bad
Large tube, so it takes some lung capacity to clear it all in one hit. However, once the slide is removed the smoke travels quickly to you. You’ll also need a good amount of liquid cleaner to clean a bong that size.
