Think You Can Build A Bong? Show Your Skills & Win Dope Gear

Every stoner has one of those friends… A self-proclaimed MacGyver of pot, a true “bongineer”. This person will always find a solution when there’s no rolling paper, bong or pipe nearby. They can make a smoking device out of absolutely anything; from fruit to fruit juice bottles, from bamboo to car parts – a bong will be built and that green will be smoked!

It’s time to put these skills to the test in BTL’s 3rd Bongineering Competition!

1st prize

The winner will receive a PieceMaker Gear Indestructible Bong and a BTL 4 Piece Grinder worth R1390.

2nd prize

The runner up will receive a BTL Gift Box worth R695.

3rd prize: Reader give-away

We also have a third prize, a BTL Grinder, which we’ll give away to one lucky reader.
