Does anybody remember the Aqua bong? It was short plastic two pieces, with a mouth piece that flipped up for smoking and when mouth piece was down it was water tight, unless it was real hot inside the car you were stashing it in this was circa early 80's. Again couldn't find pics, I guess pictures should have been taken of these old bongs. I loved that thing it was so convenient for the car, but when Jerome Baker came out with the glass I never looked back. I don't even remember when that was probably early 90's on the JB

more searching yielded a pic I guess it's called the Aqua Pipe now, I had a white one.

That is badass! I would frame it. Thanks for sharing.

no fancy glassware that I recall being sold in the sixties & seventies. there were a lot of ceramic and acrylic bongs for sale in head shops or poster shops and then there was whatever you could steal from the high school chem lab.

waaaaay back in 99 i had my my first bong hit from a 2ft tall speckled white glass bong from my former friends older brother and friends. the hit was waay too big so i cougfed my ass off and felt nothing because i imediatly cougfed out alll the smoke.

ANYWAY i remember back then the commonly used bowl was the little "cable piece", which was the little threaded metal things that were at the end of cable cords, that fit perfectly in commonly used down tubes that were made from pens with the ends pulled off. i used those aswell as small socket wrench pieces, a couple fit perfectly with pieces of stainless steel antennas, so i ended up with a couple stainless steel bowls. i started smoking the summer i turned 13 so underaged me built everything myself, iv gone through manny bongs untill i was older,

including a double bowled hooka stlye bong made from a pyrex flask from the highschool science room, and by scraching an x on a grappa bottle and slowly drilling a hole in the bottle with a glass drill bit, that one was given to a former friend.

The most common bong in my younger years were the plastic drink bottle with garden hose stem, with normal metal cone piece.
I think it was because glass bongs always got broken, and most were to hard to clean with the amount of use they had.

Odyssey glass from the 70's, early 80's always had the cool screen printing on em. They were famous for the hookahs with like six tubes coming off, takes multiple lighters to get it going from the pull of everybody hitting it. REAL OLD SCHOOL, that plastic graphix crap should have never been bought. I collect Odyssey Glass if anyone wants to lighten there collection, just PM

Good luck, Peace

I found one of those floating down a creek and it had small baggie of weed, which was nice because my truck overheated and didn't have any to while away the time. Got to believe in those pot gods..lol
