Straight Tube Bongs
If you’re looking for an efficient way to smoke, get your hands on some straight tube bongs. The smoke travels straight up the long cylinder tube with minimal drag.
You’ll notice that one side of the straight tube bong has a bowl and carburetor. The carburetor needs to be covered when smoking cannabis to help facilitate a suction.
Straight tube bongs won’t require much effort from the user either. You won’t have to pull so hard.
The percolator is smooth too because straight tube bongs hold less water. This means that they are very quick to clear. When smoking cannabis from straight tube bongs, be sure not to tip them over (their bases are on the smaller side).
Some straight tube bongs will even come equipped with ice catchers too. You may even find ones with various chambers.
