Quick Guide to Glass Under 250$ by Space Cake

I love cruising Aqua Lab Technologies for things I don’t need and can’t afford. At one point I’m almost sure it would’ve been considered a problem
To cure this blight I scrimped and saved and took extra shifts until I could afford an arguably modest water pipe of my own. In fact, it can be seen in a certain photo essay from awhile back.
A website whose addiction I have not been able to cure is Reddit. Reddit is an ultra-positive online community that acts as a filter for the internet. The flotsam and jetsam of cyberspace stays put, and the goods are laid out for all to see. Ultra massive media conglomerate Condé Nast owns the whole shebang. Still it remains relatively ad free and has billions of users.
Off topic. I happened upon a Reddit thread that called for my embarrassingly extensive knowledge of Aqua Lab’s Glass. Specifically, pieces under 250$. So here, dear readers, is what I wrote…
You’d be surprised at the pleasant smoking experience you can end up with in the 150$-250$ range. I found these on Aqualabtechnologies.com*:
All of the glass on I’ve found on ALT is handmade in the States. This 5mm Syn is 110$, Simple but functional. it has a diffused down stem, a great personal bowl, and ice pinches. Easy to clean with a brush, easy to transport.
This model also come in a 17.5″ version. Available for 175$.
With your leftover funds consider getting this great attachment. A carbon filter for your pipe allows smoother hits with less contaminates, no taste or potency loss. I love mine.
For this filter you will need activated carbon.
For dork-out’s sake check out this awesome 3 in 1 pipe for 300$. Fun technology that spins the smoke away from the glass, keeping it clean, and into the mouth piece. Looks fun too.
Bubblers are a great way to smoke, functional and easier to transport. Check out these selections.
This is a straight forward bubbler, attractively minimal in design, and good diffusion for 180$.
A funkier option for 140$.
This one makes an impressive as a personal piece, not to mention an interesting look for 190$.
A great desktop piece, one of my favorites, only 140$.
As time goes on you may want to make a few upgrades, like a hot hit wand. These also simple to manufacture for those with access to glass blowing equipment. A great burn. In the mean time consider these. They come in 3 packs.
If the carbon filter doesn’t do it for you, check out these ash catcher.
