Zong-type bongs have been around since the 90’s, but are making a comeback in a big way! Zongs are bongs with zig-zag-shaped tubing that looks cool, provides extra space to cool smoke down, and blocks water splash-back! Zong bongs can have one, two, three or more “zongs,” adding more space for cooling smoke with each zig and zag of glass.
Zong—like Kleenex, Taser, or Xerox—was originally purely a brand name associated with a single company, but the term has come to represent the type of product more broadly. Zong’s zig-zag style of glass tubing became synonymous with the company’s name, and so now every zig-zag shaped bong is called a zong bong industry-wide. Zong has even come to describe more bubble-shaped, warped tubing that is less sharp but achieves the same function of adding extra space for cooling smoke as much as possible.
At Brothers with Glass, we have a variety of zong bongs of all shapes, sizes, and amount of zongs! Our Colored Warped Neck Round Bottom Bong from Glowfly is an affordable and portable piece with a single zong to cool smoke far beyond what you’d expect from an 8.5 inch bong. For just a bit more, you can get Glowfly’s Colored Double Warped Neck Round Bottom Bong and get the same bong with another zong, so you can cool your smoke down even more! For a slightly bigger bong and a third zong for even more airflow and cooling power, you can check out Glowfly’s Glass Zong Neck Bubble Bottom Bong and Blowfish’s Glassworks 24K Gold and Silver Fumed Color Bubble Bottom Zong Bong. Don’t forget to check out Goo Roo Designs’ Tater Tot Lean Back Bong, a unique piece with curved zongs that lays down on its neck instead of standing on a straight foot, bubble, or beaker like most bongs.
Most of our zong bongs utilize regular gridded downstem percs—with some being removable and some remaining fixed—but we also have the Glowfly 80mm Honeycomb to Warped Neck Bong, which has an awesome honeycomb percolator. If you’re ready to go all out with your zong bong, we have quite a few top-shelf zongs—from Glowfly’s 14 In Fumed Heavy Wall Warped Neck Bubble Bottom Bong, which features a huge party bowl and sturdy 7mm thick glass, to the massive Glowfly 27 In Heavy Wall Warped Neck Bubble Bottom Bong, which sports six curvy zongs from top to bottom! Big or small, we even have mini bongs but a zong bong can increase your toking pleasure by both cooling your smoke and looking awesome! Enjoy!
