Almost daily, I get asked different questions about the tools used for dabs. One of the most common questions is to how to buy a proper glass pipe. There are different elements to glass pipes, which is why you need to carefully find the good qualities while weighing out the bad ones. This includes size, design, and cost. I will say this: it narrows down to one’s personal preference. So, I will discuss some qualities that would help any first time buyer so that they do not get ripped off and will visit a store with enough knowledge to know what to find.
Buy Glass Pipes Online That Catch Your Eye
Buy glass pipes that have beautiful, eye-catching aesthetics. Appearances mean a lot to a dab user, especially when he wants to show his new glass pipe to his friends. Glass pipes should be pleasing to one’s senses of sight and touch, especially if you are investing hundreds into the piece. It helps to compare many pipes to one another while making sure the one you want fits your wants and needs in terms of style. Don’t fret over brand names, give other brands a chance and you may be surprised. Eventually, your mind will say, “That’s the one.”
Examine the Shape & Design Before You Buy Glass Pipes
Physics is important when having a good glass pipe. Even if you see glass pipes for sale, you should mainly focus on the mechanisms in each pipe. Yes, the pipe may look nice and stylish, but it should not be the main reason to purchase it. You want a pipe that actually works, and works well. If the pipe is hard to keep heated or can be a pain when it comes to maintenance, then that pipe might not be for you.
For a first-timer, there are a few tips as to how you can tell if certain glass pipes are poorly created. Weight is a factor when it comes to a well-built pipe. A pipe that feels lighter than it looks is a good sign. For the most part, the lighter the glass pipe is, the more likely you will experience a great smoke. When it comes to the pipe’s material, make sure it is made of a quality material and thick. Glass is fragile and so, it can be easily broken if too much heat is applied or if you accidently drop the pipe.
Price Can Help Determine Quality OF Glass Pipes
Make sure you get a good price on your glass pipe. Buy glass pipes from a trustworthy store that will be upfront about pricing. See if there are any glass pipes for sale that won’t break your budget too much. Yes, there are very cheap glass pipes for $10, but there is a saying. You get what you pay for! So, don’t be cheap and invest in a quality pipe. I have seen nice pipes that are about $50, which is considered reasonable since there are pipes over $100.
Hopefully before you go into the next smoke shop, you are more informed than you were before reading this post as to what you should look for in a glass pipe.
