One thing about shopping for a good daily driver that will never change, is the age old question that has sparked many a debate during late night smoke sessions among friends and acquaintances, "Is a more expensive bong, rig, or recycler, better than a cheaper bought one?"
Given our many years in the smoke shop industry, we can settle this argument indefinitely... NO, you do not have to spend an arm and a leg for a great quality yet super affordable water pipe!
Now, this is because cheaper doesn't always mean you're getting a poor quality, China made piece. We ourselves here at KING's Pipe Online Headshop know as an absolute fact that we can provide our dear customers with amazing quality, American made glass bongs and dab rigs for prices that sometimes seem to be simply out of this world low! And this is because in order for our own KING's Pipe Glass to come into fruition, we spent months scouring our local Southern California stomping grounds for reliable and talented glassblowers who have proven to us that they can produce pristine glass pieces that we can offer to even the most frugal of tokers, with complete confidence that each piece will live long and get you fully loaded! Our glass definitely does not disappoint and everything for under $150 is just a freaking steal!
But just because budget bongs are available, that shouldn't take away from the fact that for aficionado glass collectors, a nice, sturdy, and expertly crafted heady glass such as the gnarly water pipes, oil rigs, recyclers, hand pipes, & glass bowls created by the imaginative folks at Empire Glassworks, are always worth the extra ca$h to be able to own a functioning piece of actual artwork. These are the pieces you show off to your friends and take pride in having. But in all honesty, if you're anything like me who will brag to death about a cheap yet solid bong, I will always choose saving money over spending it lol But that could be the cannaMomma in me talking.
So, like everything else in life, it's really up to your preference. But the point of the matter is, cheap does not mean crappy quality and being on a budget does not leave you S-O-L (shit outta luck haha) because there will always be rad companies like us at KING's Pipe Glass, American Made Glass (AMG), Alien Flower Monkey (AFM), Bogart Glass, the indestructible Eyce Molds, Bio Hazard, and so many more!
