When it comes to taking a big, smooth hit off a bong, nothing guarantees a cough-free pull like stacking the water pipe full of ice cubes. Cooling down the smoke in a bong can make a huge difference when it comes to big rips, which can otherwise feel overpowering and cause chest discomfort.
For that reason, lots of bong smokers prefer to get a water pipe that’s equipped with an ice catcher in the neck. Here are our five top choices for the best ice bongs for smooth pulls.
1. 15" Honeycomb Perc Straight Tube Bong
If you want something simple that can hold plenty of ice, the 15" Honeycomb Perc Straight Tube Bong is a great introduction to ice bongs. The simple straight tube design is supported by thick glass and a Dewar's joint. The honeycomb perc sits near the bottom of the bong so you won't need too much water for it to function. The donut style ice catcher sits above the perc, with enough room to keep a lot of ice in your 15" Honeycomb Perc Straight Tube Bong at all times. This pipe is perfect for those who are just getting into icy smooth hits.
2. 16” Coil Perc Beaker with Removable Downstem
Ice bong users seem to share at least one common complaint, and that’s the problem of splashback. Once bong ice melts it can raise the water level in the bong base and cause spillage out of the downstem or worse, a bunch of dirty water flying into the smoker’s mouth. If you’re a big fan of both smoking ice bongs and keeping the melted bong water out of your mouth, the 16" Coil Perc Beaker with Removable Downstem by Nucleus is a great option.
The brightly colored glass base of this bong leads straight into a coil perc, which is topped by a domed splashguard and a traditional three-pinch ice catcher. Because this bong has so much space for the ice to melt down into as well as an enclosed perc and a splashguard to prevent splashback, you can pretty much hit it as hard as you want. With that in mind, you’ll definitely want to stock the neck full of ice to ensure that all 16 inches of this hit are as chill as possible.
Be sure to do some research on whether a beaker or straight tube is right for you.
3. 11” Double Tree Perc Straight Tube Bong
For a shorter option, the 11" Double Tree Perc Straight Tube Bong has an ice catcher that’s unusually close to the mouthpiece, but what the neck of this bong lacks in ice space it more than makes up for with percolators. The use of double tree percs on top of one another packs as much filtration in an 11” inch space as you’d usually find in a bong twice the size. It’s a great option for smokers who want a small scientific glass bong that packs a big hit and still has space for ice in its neck.

4. 6 Arm Tree Perc Water Pipe With Ice Catcher
Another highly filtered option under a foot tall, the 6 Arm Tree Perc Water Pipe with Ice Catcher leaves more space for ice in the neck of the bong by placing the donut ice catcher right on top of a single six-arm tree percolator. The piece’s diffusing downstem works in tandem with the tree perc to break down smoke before it hits the ice catcher and stylish flared mouthpiece.
5. "Tonfa" Wig Wag UFO to Matrix Perc Bong
Between the ice catcher and two percs, the "Tonfa" Wig Wag UFO to Matrix Perc Bong will give you icy fresh, diffused smoke on a continuous basis. Ronin Glass is known for their unique looks and designs and this water pipe is no different. The separated chambers keep splashback at bay and the ice cold hits coming. The spacing between percs gives the "Tonfa" Wig Wag UFO to Matrix Perc Bong plenty of filtration.
