Do you know the difference between old and classic? Classic refers to things that will always be in style, just like this water pipe. Sure, it may not have some fancy design, but it will always look cool, and will never be outdated. Even if all the other water pipes you have happen to have intricate elaborate designs, you need one classic water pipe to complete your collection. The base is detachable, and the tube comes in many different colors, so each bong is unique. This acrylic bong stands 10 inch tall and most of the parts are standardized so you can change them if you want.
