Beakers, they aren’t just hooting puppets that suck at science, they’re also some of the most important inventions in human history. That may sound ridiculous, but hear me out. Have you ever taken medicine? Unless you were raised by hippies or people who get all of their medical advice off of Facebook, then you probably have. So as glass containers go, the beaker has probably saved millions of lives.
As my frantic hyperbole probably shows, I’m pretty fond of beakers, and my favorite type of beaker is a beaker base bong.
Beaker Base BongsBeaker base bongs are among the most established and well-known bong shapes on the market. Beaker bongs have one great feature that should be immediately obvious; it has a broad footprint. This means that beaker base bongs are incredibly stable, able to stand up to wayward elbows much better than other shapes of bongs.
Another advantage of this broad base is that you can fit a whole lot more water in there. Now, this may seem like an obvious thing to say, but it really is one of the best features! Bongs work by cooling the surface area of your hit with their reservoir. It doesn’t take an engineer to figure out that more water means more cooling! Beaker bongs can deliver smoother, and tastier hits than nearly any other type of bong.
Finally, beaker base bongs are aesthetically fantastic. A well-made, hand blown bong constructed from high quality borosilicate glass is a fantastic centerpiece for any collection. If good looking glass matters to you, then you need a beaker base bong.
RoorIf my enthusiastic rant has won you around and you want a beaker base bong, then you should defiantly look into a Roor bong. Roor are perhaps the finest glass blowers on the bong scene. Based in Germany Roor are a true, high-quality brand, you could look at them as the Ferrari of the bong scene, except their customer base consists of more than conservative old men with bad tans.
The Roor Little Sista is the best example of their fantastic glass bongs. Built out of high-quality borosilicate glass, the Little Sista is highly resistant to thermal shock, which means that you won’t have to worry about losing your high quality bong to stress fractures.
The Little Sista features ice notches in its neck. When you take a hit it is forced to flow across the ice, further cooling it and giving you one of the smoothest hits you’ll experience from any bong.
