Bubblers are any type of bong that contains water to cool smoke, resulting in bubbling. This includes classic beaker bongs but is most often used to differentiate smaller “water pipes” from their bong-shaped brethren.
These feisty little guys are a great compromise between big bulky beaker bongs and smaller, hot air hand pipes.
Their flexibility in size make the more mobile and easily stored. Since they are still constructed out of glass you can get the same rad artwork you find on other bigger more serious pieces.
While you can find small water pipes with quality glass for under $30 you can easily spend $100+ when custom hand-made glassblowing artwork is applied.
