Ice bongs vs Regular bongs Ice bongs are the bongs with an ice pinch or ice catcher. Therefore, it ispossible to add few ice cubes in the tube. The ice catcher will stop the icefrom falling through the water chamber so the ice will melt slowly and thesmoke will be cooled down. Each smoker wants to enjoy nice cool smokingexperience so they choose mostly bongs with an ice holder. The cooler smokes,the smoother and bigger hits. Tips: Adding ice in the ice catcher bong is easy but you must be very careful to do that.It’s not recommended to just throw it in. Ice cubes are quite hard so theycould break the glass ice pinch.
