What Is an Ice Catcher Bong – Cool Down Your Smoke

What Is an Ice Catcher Bong

I’m sure majority of you guys reading this already know what an ice catcher bong is, and for those of you don’t know what it is; an ice catcher bong is any bong that has room to place ice where it sits above the base. Some bongs will have multiple chambers and might just have an empty chamber up top for placing the ice in it. Other bongs might also be multi-chamber or multi-perc but instead of having an entire chamber dedicated for ice, it’ll most likely be a straight tube that has pinches inside the tube, allowing ice to sit up top as well but just on a smaller scale, but this doesn’t mean less ice can be held they’re just two different types of ice catchers. One can be more like ice notches, compared to a chamber.

The purpose of a bong with an ice catcher is to cool down the smoke before it gets to your lungs. It isn’t necessarily healthier to inhale cooler smoke, but it simply is just a lot smoother going down your throat. Think about it this way, if you’re the type of person to drink room temperature water because you don’t like really cold water, then you probably wouldn’t mind if there was no ice in your bong, and might even prefer it this way. But, if you’re like me and you just feel like the colder the better, then you’ll want ice in your bong. My point is that there’s a gray area when it comes to if bongs are better with or without an ice catcher because to some people it makes a huge difference in a good way and almost can’t smoke without ice, and to others having ice in it makes hardly any difference at all so really it’s all your own preference.

I recommend bongs with ice catchers because when you have ice, it makes the hit feel like you’re literally just breathing in air, and then out of nowhere you just feel it in your lungs. It just makes it a little less harsh when you’re deciding to take a really fat rip but you don’t wanna kill yourself lol. But I understand some people’s opinion that it really doesn’t make that much of a difference because I don’t use ice every time I smoke, but mostly because I’m either not home or I’m just too lazy to get up lol.

But anyways I hope this post helped ou guys out, please leave your comments down below if you have any questions or any concerns. I will do my best to respond ASAP so have a nice day!

  1. I absolutely love the ice catch feature that certain bongs have. I made sure that most of our bigger glass had them when I bought them.

    The sensation it can create it just untouchable, heheh making m want to go load one up right now!! Thanks for the great write up, it’s always awesome to find little Nugz of knowledge like this

  2. Back in the day, I probably would’ve tried this lol.

    I’m not a smoker anymore, but I enjoyed the read nonetheless. I had no idea you could put ice in a bong! Do you have to constantly add more ice as you’re taking a hit, or does it not melt very quickly?

    Would it also be possible to use flavoured ice as well? As a vaper and ex-retailer, I know that if something has capella flavouring in it, it’s not altogether harmful, like most TPD compliant e-juices.

  3. Hi, I’m wondering if you could clear-up some information about using ice in the chamber.
    Is it possible that the ice placed in the chamber could hurt the lungs? Also, I’m curious to know if you use ice frequently and regularly for a longer period of time, would it irritate or infect the lungs?
    In the past, I’ve had some mild lung issues due to smoking cigarettes. I no longer smoke but I still have short, minor episodes of bronchitis.
    When I use a bong with regular water, there hasn’t been any lung issues. And so, I’ve a bit concerned if I change the bong routine and add ice that I could potentially start hurting my lungs again. I know that water vapor is water vapor (liquid or ice form) but I can’t help but think colder water vapor will cause damage to the lungs. I’m feeling a bit concerned about this. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.

    1. Hey! I’m really glad to hear that you no longer smoke cigarettes, that is a huge stepping stone that I’m sure wasn’t easy. But to answer your question, because adding the ice will make the smoke cooler, it’ll actually be better for your lungs. If you haven’t used ice before, I’m sure you’ve experienced a harsh warm hit every once in a while.. adding ice will eliminate this completely. 

      Hope this helps! 

  4. Hey Gabriel!

    I don’t think I care about the Ice Catcher as much as I do if the bong delivers the hit Im looking for.
    I do think the product is cool though.

    I prefer the smaller bongs over the bigger ones so trying it with ice has never been an option for me.

  5. Ice catcher bongs are AWESOME!!! They’re masterpieces wh definitely transform our bonging experience to a whole new level.

    While I’m hitting bongs with ice it goes down my throat without burning the surroundings. It’s way too comfortable to smoke through and I advise it to EVERYONE.

    There are even ice molds for full ice bongs 😀 I think you should do a review of them too.

  6. I don’t smoke but I have a lot of family members that do. I never heard of the ice catcher bong, so I found the information interesting. I also enjoyed reading comments because they made me think of different issues related to the subject.Thank you for the interesting information and good luck.
