Purpose of an ash catcher?

Why not just use a bong without it? What is the purpose behind one?

Also, please don't say to catch ash. No shit. xD

keeps ash out of the chamber, keeping it much cleaner. and you don't have to change the water as often.

to expand on what deadhead said.. it basically keeps the main chamber of the bong cleaner. this can be important for bongs with multiple percolaters or what have you. complex glass is harder to clean so an ash catcher can be really important. they also make for a smoother hit. i used to use one when i had a 3 chamber bong, it was admitedly kind of a pain in the ass because the bowl on it was really small, but it did a good job of keeping the piece clean

it also helps to distribute the heat, and helps to insure you are burning more herb and not just sucking un used bud all through your works.

It all dépends on what you're smoking, dear Xorgone, but the main purpose is not to inhale powdery ashes while you're trying to get the most efficient & enjoyable out of your dope

inhale ashes? what the hell kind of bong gives people ash inhales?

the only reason id ever use one is for the double filtration. catching ash is useless as fuck.

Fancy bongs seem to do nothing but make it harder to clean, in my limited experience.

Just gimme a straight tubed simple glass bong. Maybe some notches for an ice catcher in the tube.

I thought that too until I had a triple chambered phx, seriously made any weed taste amazing and you never got a stale or hot bowl.

Id like to pick up another perc type bong but im not into glass anymore.

I just smoke out of cheap glass pipes 90% of the time. I still have my first pipe that i got at 16 and it's still my main piece lol. Thing is hard as a rock.

My only bong is a glass mini bong (like 12 inches high) that i bought at the hightimes store on the canadian side of niagra falls, also at like 16/17 lol.
