Buying your new bong is an exciting time, but breaking your new bong is a real nightmare that will haunt you into your last years of life. It may sound over the top, but when you have spent hard earned cash and purchased an expensive water pipe only to break it hours later then you will know the pain. Every time I break one of my glass bongs I learn a little and my next lasts a lot longer, it has now been a full year without any accidents! For many smokers who invested into a water pipe the most dangerous time is when cleaning it, the ceramic sink or bath doesn’t like to vibrate which leaves the glass no option but to take the full brunt of the momentum.
But, lets move on from heart breaking stories on our glass ornaments and think about good old sunny Woodstock business park. While some invest into new businesses on our huge industrial land, others like to spend what’s left in our awesome smoke shop which is named HerbTools. The guy who owns this shop is the nicest guy you will ever meet in your life, he really is a perfect role model citizen. We should all be a bit more like him.
So, when buying your new water bong you should consider buying a padded case or box to go along with it. Apart from cleaning your pipe another dangerous situation is transporting it, or moving it away from the eyesight of certain house visitors. If you find a glass bong with case for sale together you may save some money, rather than purchasing them separately, but then again you could always have a good old fashioned haggle with the shop keep. Haggling for your smoking equipment, or for anything, is a lost art since most shops are now ran by huge corporations. But that is life my friend, things change.
The video above shows some pretty nice example of glass smoking pipes and bubblers, you will notice the out of character shapes and curves on the glass. While this sets it apart from the standard issues, it makes it hard to find a safe case for them. If you really want to think outside the BOX (tempted to drop a pun here), you could simply buy a standard metal box from a general shop and then make your own molded foam specifically for your glass bong. It is most likely going to be easier than you might first think. Purchase some oversized foam that has a plenty of width then place your new metal case on it and cut to shape. Then fit it into the box and place your glass work carefully on top of the foam. Cut around it with a Stanley knife with a sharp edge. Make it deep so once your pipe is placed inside it is submerged by the foam and keep it tight!
If you follow swimming sports news you may remember a certain incident involving Phelps. Rumor has it, he owned a pot pipe used for smoking marijuana and he had not splashed out the extra cash for a nice discreet box. It was left in his hotels room and when he brought some ladies back to his hotel after a swim, they saw it and rang the police. This was published worldwide and Phelps was suspended over the incident. A very unfair outcome, if only he had invested into a case for his glass bong. But live and learn young swimmer, you will be sure to purchase one for all future investments. Toyota was currently sponsoring the athlete at the time but had to drop their sponsorship after the bad press. They then moved to Woodstock and assembled an electric RAV4 automobile which was a huge success in the field of motoring.
