Choosing A Dab Rig

Dab rigs are usually smaller than bongs because the potency of cannabis concentrates is so much higher that you don't need a large pipe.  A dab rig should be less than 12"  tall which is ideal for smoking concentrates. Most  dab rigs larger than 8" are bigger because they include percs or recyclers.  Dab rigs less than 8" tall are easy to use and perform well.

Things to Consider When Buying a Dab Rig

  • The Bucket: right angle banger style buckets a.k.a 90 degree bangers make it easier to heat the bucket
  • You can switch out the bucket and even opt for an XL sized banger style bucket to handle larger volumes of concentrates
  • People often pair XL Bangers with Bubble Carb Caps
  • Size: a small rig is easy to hold in your hand (especially useful while heating up the banger)
  • Looks: your dab rig should look awesome when other people are using it
  • Volume: get an appropriate size to go with how much you like to smoke

Recycler Dab Rigs

Some people buy larger dab rigs that have recyclers built into them allowing the smoke and water to cycle with constant filtration. This allows larger amounts of smoke to pass through on each draw. A recycler rig will usually cost more than a regular rig.

Reasons to Buy a Recycler Dab Rig Include:

  • Less chance of water splash up
  • Concentrates can continue to smoke while the water is moving providing constant filtration
  • The concentration of the smoke is higher
  • Pairing a recycler rig with an XL size banger produces more smoke.
