Our Top 10 Picks for Bongs Under $100

“You get what you pay for.” This mantra has scorned people from bargain shopping. However, some of the best water pipes in the industry can be considered some of the best bongs under $100.

Not sure where to start your glass bong shopping spree? We’ll help you find the right glass bong to meet your needs that isn’t too expensive.

We’re going to cover:

  • The 10 best bongs under $100.
  • Situations where a specific bong might be best for your needs.
  • Pros and cons of each glass bong.

1. LA Pipes 5mm Thick Beaker Water Pipe with Showerhead Perc

When it comes to durability and value, LA Pipes is one of the best bongs under $100. It’s one of the most popular items at the Smoke Cartel online headshop.

This piece is ideal for smokers who want to graduate from hand pipes but aren’t ready to invest in a dab rig. There are no accessories required but is designed to accommodate future add-ons.

LA Pipes crafted this beaker style bong with worked glass, so different colors sparkle when the light hits the piece just right. Each piece is unique, so you don’t get to choose the color scheme or design.

This bong comes in at under $100 and is equipped with one showerhead percolator. Each rip gets cooled down by the water at the bottom of the bong before circulating up through the showerhead perc. Its array of tiny holes forces the smoke into separate directions.

This reaction disperses the heat into the thick glass, leaving cool smoke that’s easy on the lungs. Plus, the perc placement pushes the ice pinch about half-way up the piece, which means your lips remain free of percolated water!

They include a male bowl with this bong, which happens to be a weakness for one of the best bongs on this list. This 14mm bowl doesn’t hold a lot of weed, making it hard to corner evenly.

Also, the herb tends to fall through the bowl and into the water. So, you might want to consider buying a new bowl or a pipe screen with the money you saved by buying a bong under a hundred bucks.

Features:

  • 14 Inches Tall
  • 14.5mm Female Joint
  • 14mm Male Bowl Included
  • 1 Showerhead Percolator
  • Diffused Downstem
  • Ice Pinch

Pros:

  • Easy to Use
  • Thick Glass, Durable
  • Showerhead Perc Allows for Cool, Flavorful Smoke
  • Worked Glass Looks Nice
  • No Percolated Water in the Mouth

Cons:

  • Can’t Choose Colors
  • Not Always in Stock
  • Very Traditional Style
  • Small Bowl

2. Glasscity Beaker Ice Bong

If you’re looking for a smaller bong with even less frills than the LA Pipes, then this Glasscity Beaker Ice Bong is the piece for you. It’s a very straightforward piece that’s main function is to get you blazed without destroying your lungs.

Glasscity includes a diffused downstem with three slits. As you pull in the smoke, the cooling down process begins before it even hits the water.

Right above the base of the beaker lies three notches for ice. This trait makes for cooled-down clouds of loud.

Unlike the LA Pipes, this piece won’t have as much of a cooling effect due to the placement of the ice pinches. With the LA Pipes, the smoke has time to cool down between water and ice.

The ice in the LA Pipes is closer to the mouthpiece, which protects your tongue from the heat. Whereas, the ice placement of the Glasscity just cools down at the tip of the tube. There isn’t a last-minute ice bath like we get from the LA Pipes.

However, we love the mouthpiece of this Glasscity bong. It’s rimmed with black borosilicate glass that contours to your mouth.

The comfort of the mouthpiece allows you to take in longer pulls of smoke. Plus, you won’t get an odd O-shape ring on your face!

We also appreciate the free keck clip included in this purchase. It’s ideal for keeping your downstem in place, especially when passing around your bong to friends. Even if this is one of the best bongs under $100, you don’t want to break your accessories!

Features:

  • 10 Inches Tall
  • 18.8mm Ground Joint
  • 14.5mm Male Bowl
  • Diffuser Downstem for Immediate Cooling
  • 3 Ice Pinches

Pros:

  • High-quality Glass
  • Free Keck Clip
  • Contoured and Comfortable Mouthpiece

Cons:

  • Huge Glasscity Logo (If That’s Not Your Thing)
  • Ice Notches Close to Water
  • No Percolator

3. Retro Honeycomb Bong – Mint

The Retro Honeycomb Bong is one of the greatest values on bongs under $100. For one, it’s the most stylish.

It has a Tiffany blue-meets-aqua-mint chamber and a solid base that makes this piece very attractive on a shelf. The diamond-like accents around the percolator make this bong a girl’s best friend.

Beauty fades as we age, as does this piece. So, if you want it to remain vibrant, you must keep up with cleaning. Luckily, its shape makes this task easy to pull off.

Speaking of percs, this piece boasts a honeycomb percolator. Many honeycomb-shaped holes will disperse your smoke throughout the piece.

The shape of the honeycomb percolator makes this accessory one of the best smoke filtration tools. You can easily clear the Retro Honeycomb Bong without breaking out in a coughing fit.

At 11 inches, this glass bong is easy to hide and very portable. It’s ideal for someone who is always on-the-go or needs to hide their smoking paraphernalia from others in the house.

The base is extremely thick, making it hard for even that klutzy friend to knock over. However, it’s not too heavy to throw in your bag for a day trip.

Features:

  • 11 Inches Tall
  • 18.8mm Ground Joint
  • 14.5mm Male Bowl
  • Honeycomb Percolator

Pros:

  • Unique Color
  • Honeycomb Perc for Precision Smoke Filtration
  • Thick Base to Prevent Knock Overs
  • Thick Glass But Lightweight for Portability

Cons:

  • Thick Bottom Might Not Fit In All Bags
  • Bowl a Bit Small
  • Need to Clean Frequently

4. GRAV – Beaker with Geometric Ice Pinch

If you want the coolest smoke that preserves flavor and your lungs, look no further than the GRAV – Beaker with Geometric Ice Pinch.

The geometric ice pinch of this beaker bong allows you to pack in a considerable amount of ice. Its placement is near the mouthpiece.

Just like with the LA Pipes, this placement allows for a last second cool down for the purest puff of smoke.

The ice pinch has two other purposes. Where it’s placed also acts as a splash guard. So, you can pull with all your lung strength without feeling waterboarded!

It’s also the perfect divot to place your hand when you grab the beaker. So, it makes for a comfortable grip when traveling with, passing, or cleaning your piece.

At 8.5 inches, it’s easy to transport this GRAV bong. However, you must do so with care. It comes with a fixed downstem, so this delicate accessory is prone to breaking in transport.

Also, the fixed downstem makes cleaning the piece a bit difficult. Plus, you have to pour the water out of the top. Other than that, there’s a reason why GRAV is listed as one of the best bong brands out there.

Features:

  • 8.5 Inches Tall
  • 32mm Thick Glass
  • 14mm Female Joint
  • 14mm Male Bowl
  • Geometric Ice Pinch
  • Fixed Downstem

Pros:

  • Holds A Lot of Ice
  • Geometric Ice Catch Acts as Splash Guard
  • Geometric Ice Catch Serves as Hand Grip
  • Small and Easy to Pass Around

Cons:

  • Fixed Downstem Makes it Hard to Clean or Transport
  • Small Bowl

5. “Simply Guy” Pedestal with Ice Pinch Basic Water Pipe

This water pipe is ideal for a smoker who wants an affordable bong that does the trick with bare-bones features. Oh, and they also want a little style to this simple request. Enter the “Simply Guy” Pedestal with Ice Pinch Basic Water Pipe.

This LA Pipes original has a small, yet elegant design. The base and basin are separated with a short, thick stem that’s reminiscent of a Bruges beer glass. Opting for this decision is not only aesthetically pleasing but makes for a comfortable fit in one hand.

The downstem is diffused, even catching the loose herb and ash at the ends. It’s removable and easy to clean the soot off.

However, it can stand to have a few more slits because herb can get through and into the water. The hole in the bowl is pretty large, so this is a common problem.

On the flip side, the ice pinch is too small for full-sized ice cubes. Plus, it’s placed right above the basin, making for less filtration.

Features:

  • 12 Inches Tall
  • Removable 4in 18mm to 14mm Downstem
  • 14.5mm Female Joint
  • Male Bowl
  • Ice Pinch

Pros:

  • Easy to Handle and Pass
  • Comfortable Grip
  • Removable Downstem Catches Herb

Cons:

  • Large Hole in Bowl Causes You to Lose Weed
  • Downstem Doesn’t Filter All Soot
  • Ice Pinch is Small, Close to Base

6. Durable 7mm Thick Straight Ice Bong by Black Leaf

This is one of the best party bongs at the under $100 price range. The Durable 7mm Thick Straight Ice Bong by Black Leaf comes at a staggering 17.3 inches tall. It’s ideal for making rounds in the room, and figuring out who has your bong!

Black Leaf includes a rubber stopper on the bowl. This little extra is perfect for the person who puts the bowl to pack it and watches the accessory slowly roll off the table.

Be careful when removing the bowl with stopper from the bong. It does create a suction, making it difficult to remove.

We love the versatility of this piece. It comes with a carb hole and rubber stopper, so you can control the intensity of your hits.

Features:

  • 17.3 Inches Tall
  • 18.8mm Ground Joint
  • 14.5mm Male Bowl with Rubber Stopper

  • 3 Ice Pinches
  • Carb Hole and Rubber Plug

Pros:

  • Rubber Stopper on Bowl Stops Packing Accidents
  • Carb Hole and Rubber Plug Allows You To Control Smoke Intake
  • Tall, Ideal for Daily Smokers and Parties

Cons:

  • Large Straight Tube, More Prone to Breaking
  • Ice Pinch Above Basin
  • Bowl and Stopper Stick to Bong

7. GRAV- Round Base Water Pipe with Geometric Ice Pinch

This bong is much like the other GRAV Geometric Ice Pinch piece on our list. The major difference here is the shape of the piece.

We love the round elegance of the GRAV- Round Base Water Pipe with Geometric Ice Pin. However, it hurts the functionality of the bong.

While the Simply Guy bong’s round base resembled a Bruges beer glass, this one is more like a stemless wine glass. So, you must cup the bottom as you smoke and pass.

If you’re re-considering your budget choice, then make sure to check out our list of even cheaper bongs priced under $50 here.

Features:

  • 8.5 Inches Tall
  • Fixed Downstem
  • Geometric Ice Pinch

Pros:

  • Holds A Lot of Ice
  • Geometric Ice Pinch Helps Grip

Cons:

  • Fixed Downstem is Hard to Clean
  • Round Bottom Makes Passing and Holding Difficult

8. 12″ Twisted Spiral Bong

If you’re wanting some of the best filtration from a bong under $100, then check out the 12″ Twisted Spiral Bong.

The spirals are more than just a thing of beauty on this water pipe. They force the smoke to wisp in circular motions to make a cotton candy of delight in your mouth.

Twists and turns that comprise the chamber structure also eliminate backsplash. Plus, the twirled glass makes for a better grip when cleaning or transporting.

This is the perfect addition to any girly bong collection for its beauty. However, the clean hits and functionality make the 12” Twisted Spiral Bong an ideal glass bong for the daily smoker.

Features:

  • 8.5 Inches Tall
  • Fixed Downstem
  • Geometric Ice Pinch

Pros:

  • Awesome Filtration System
  • Spiral Design Makes for Clean and Flavorful Smoke
  • Eliminates Back Splash
  • Each Piece is One-of-a-Kind

Cons:

  • Can’t Choose Design
  • Very Thin Neck

9. 8″ Mini Beaker Bong by Diamond Glass

If you’re a frequent smoker who is looking for their forever water pipe on a budget, then this glass bong from Diamond Glass is for you.

The 8″ Mini Beaker Bong by Diamond Glass is little but sturdy and is built to last. It’s made of 5mm borosilicate glass that can survive a slip-up with your butterfinger friends.

Also, its beaker shape has a slight contour along the sides that differs from other beaker glass bongs. This piece will survive that quick elbow tap that happens when you’re reaching for the lighter.

We love the little accents, such as the blue-colored top. Unfortunately, the colors of the mouthpiece and logo decal may vary. So, you may end up with a color that’s not your first choice.

Another neat feature is the hollow bowl. You can watch the smoke enter as your eyes cross from the influx of smoke into your lungs.

While cool, the bowl is also very thin and has a big hole. So, it’s not as durable as some other bowls, and you might lose a bit of weed into the chamber.

With that said, you can still pack quite a bit into this bad boy. It’s an oversized bowl, making it the perfect bong for a group of friends. You can also pack this bong for a wake-and-bake and take little rips as the day progresses.

Features:

  • 8 Inches Tall
  • 18mm to 14mm LoPro Diffused Downstem
  • Hollow Bowl
  • Ice Catcher

Pros:

  • Small and Sturdy
  • Easily Portable
  • Hollow Bowl to Watch Smoke
  • Oversized Bowl for Extra Herb

Cons:

  • Can’t Choose Design
  • Thin Bowl a Bit Delicate
  • Large Hole in Bowl Might Cause Weed Loss

10. GRAV – Upright Bubbler 6”

And the award for “Tiny but Mighty” in our top 10 list goes to the GRAV Upright Bubbler 6″. Don’t let the size fool you; this piece delivers high-quality hits of cool smoke that doesn’t burn your taste buds. That way, you can taste the rainbow in your Zkittlez.

This simple water pipe has a tungsten downstem. During manufacturing, fission holes are made with a tungsten rod while the product is still hot.

That allows for smooth edges that are less prone to clogging. Therefore, if you hate cleaning your glass pieces, then this bubbler is right up your alley.

The GRAV Upright Bubbler 6″ is built to last. It’s comprised of scientific glass and has a thick, round base.

Due to its size, durability, and upright positioning, you can easily take discreet hits out on a hike, in transit as a passenger, or outside your in-laws’ place at a holiday gathering.

However, size can sometimes be a detriment. With less room between mouth and water, there is more room for backsplash. In the case of this bubbler, it’s more likely without a perc.

Check out the differences between a bubbler vs bong here.

Features:

  • 6 Inches Tall
  • Tungsten Downstem

Pros:

  • Compact, Travels Well
  • Built to Last
  • Tungsten Downstem Makes for Little Cleaning
