The “Beaker Bong” Water Pipe
A traditional water pipe, more commonly known as a “bong”. These are some of the most popular common selling items in smoke shops all around the world. Customers are always looking out for what’s cool and new, or just replacing their old water pipe. Bongs come in a multitude of styles and varieties. If you want to stay safe, you can’t go wrong with a glass 8-12” beaker bong. This is the sweet spot when it comes to sizing for water pipes. Anything taller or shorter could fall into a specialty category such as bubblers or rigs.
If a plain beaker bong is too boring for you, there are many different styles and colourways you can get instead. Bubble bongs, vase, and pyramid bongs are just a few examples of the vast array of different water pipes you can stock your store with.
Soft Glass Water Pipes

Soft glass water pipes get their name from the material they’re made out of. A traditional water pipe like the beaker bong we mentioned before is usually made from borosilicate glass. Soft glass water pipes however, are made from soda-lime glass. This makes the water pipe softer in nature and more susceptible to shattering or breaking. The soda-lime glass does give it more unique and colourful properties at a much cheaper price. Soft glass water pipes are another very popular line of glass that you can carry. They have cemented their place in the smoking industry as some of the best budget pieces you can buy.
Acrylic/Plastic Water Pipes
Acrylic and plastic water pipes are known to be some of the most durable and portable pipes you can buy. Although they aren’t as aesthetically pleasing as some of the glass water pipes you can buy, acrylic and plastic pieces are a much better option for travelling, or for clumsy people that are worried about breaking glass. They offer a smooth smoke and can be easily hidden due to their durability.
