Number 10 on our list is the popular Octobong from Blackleaf Glass. Blackleaf earned its solid reputation with the first release of the original Octobong bubbler. This latest version of their Octobong 10-arm Perc Bubbler packs some serious firepower into a compact, lab-grade glass bubbler!
The secret is in the glass! Each double-slitted arm of the perculator provides intense diffusion in just a little water for a smooth pull. The hollow base is part of the chamber, allowing for extra volume. The built-in disc screen is a nice bonus and helps keep ash and crap out of your water without creating any drag.
Check out the awesome Octobong octopus logothat decorates the tube the tube leading to the mouthpiece. Heavy duty glass sits on 4 inch diameter base. A real value for the price, here’s your opportunity to own an unique and innovative glass pipe.
This glass perc bubbler from Sheldon Black Glass follows the design of traditional bubblers from the glassblower. It has a removable diffuser making it super easy to clean. Very nice Sheldon Black logo etched on the diffuser & the bowl. Once the treated and cooled smoke moves through the diffuser, it begins to rise and fills the main section of the bubbler providing a very nice visual as a bonus.
There is some sick coloured glasswork set upon clear glass that has been done throughout this piece creating a unique appearance consisting of shades of blue and purple that blend together to form a terrific piece of art.
This bubbler pipe is consists of a large gold chamber which doubles as the base. From this chamber explodes the borosilicate glass bowl surrounded by an array of coloured glass horns. Both of which have been given the electroformed copper treatment.
The neck of the bubbler consists of two major segments, The detailed glass head, and a worked disc style mouthpiece. just like the base, these also have the electroformed copper treatment.
This electroforming (or electroplating) of the copper on top of the worked borosilicate glass creates a stunning contrast between the two styles.
Another amazing piece by Scott Deppe. This is a big piece – 12″ wide and 14.5″ tall! And every inch is filled with intricate dancing bears and wisps of color. This is a huge HEADY bubbler with Dancing Bears Tripping on Mushrooms montage.
The affordable and stylish Weedstar makes the countdown! This is a handheld glass bubbler for smoking BHO (butane honey oil) and other concentrates that is just over nine inches tall. The Weedstar vapor bubbler makes a great little intro pipe for smoking concentrates. The slitted inline perc will break up your toke into luscious bubbles for smoother smoke, and the multiple marias not only add decoration but ensure a safer grip.
This pint-sized Micro Bubbler is a scientific glass water pipe with super powered percolation! The fixed stem inside this piece leads to a slitted inline perc with a disc perc just above it. These two items are the secret that delivers a bubbly smooth pull that’s less harsh on your throat. Light and compact with a curved, this little bubbler easy to handle and comfortable to use!
