What to look for when buying a new bowl
It’s not just for looks, although that is a big part of getting new bowl. Choosing the right bowl for your bong will make all the difference in how your piece will function overall. Water pipe newbies may not realize that there are different sizes and not all bowls are compatible with every kind of bong. The main things to keep in mind while you’re shopping around are the size of the male joint, depth of the bowl, style, and of course aesthetics.
First, determine if your bong uses a slide style bowl or a non-removable bowl with a downstem and silicone o ring. Slides are the most common, but if your bong has a carb, then your piece uses a non-removable bowl. Next take a look at the size of the female joint on your bong. The most common size is 14mm, but some water pipes require 18mm. If you find a one-of-a-kind bowl that you just can’t live without but it’s in a different size, don’t worry. An additional adapter piece will be needed, but the bowl will work with your bong! As for the depth of the bowl’s depression, it really depends on your personal smoking style. Are you a smooth one hitter? Then choose a shallow bowl that packs less. Do you like to pass your bong around with friends or take massive tokes all by yourself? Opt for an extra deep bowl that holds a lot of weed at once.
One of the most important aspects for many smokers is aesthetics. Find a piece that you love to look at or one that matches the design and color palate of your bong. Bowls typically last a very long time (unless they’re stolen, it happens), so you want to find one that keeps you excited. These are a few of our most popular and unique bowls to get you started.
