What accessories make up the ideal dabbing rig? Should I get a quartz banger, or a ceramic or titanium nail? What about those little pearls?
Relax. Everyone went through this process the first time and we’ll gladly give you a hand and guide you. Also half the fun is exploring and trying new things and experiencing them for yourself. So don’t stress and enjoy the many options the dabbing game has to offer. That way you will surely find your perfect set up sooner than later.
For starters, you don’t really need to get too complicated. There are fully loaded rigs available in the market. For example, the Higher Standards Rig Kit, it comes ready with all you need to get started. Another nice option for a beginner is the Eyce Rig II, its durable titanium nail and indestructible silicone body can handle all your beginner errors. Then there’s the Kandypens Oura that proves to be an excellent electronic option. We recommend having a rig solely for dabbing, but if on a budget and want to flirt with the idea, you could able your existing water pipe for concentrates using the right attachments.
The main component of any rig is a glass chamber that you fill with water in order to cool and filter the vapor form your dab. Don’t worry, if it seems your water pipe doesn’t connect properly to your banger or other accessories. A whole range of extensions and adapters are available just for that purpose.
This is the part where you will put your concentrates. The banger is an angled, bucket-like structure, while the nail goes straight up and has a shaft that rises from the middle. They come in various materials, but quartz and titanium tend to be the favorites. At the Stash Shack we recommend the quartz banger as one of the best options for flavor chasers. Fans of titanium love it for its durability.
The carb cap goes over your nail or banger and helps the vaporization by helping to trap heat inside and distribute air consistently through the banger.. They modify the airflow, increase flavor, and allow for lower temperature dabs. You don’t absolutely need one, but you should definitely have one.
A dabber is a pointy or spoon-like glass or metal tool used to grab your concentrate and place it inside the hot nail. Some dabbers have carb caps in the opposite end, making them double tools.
Unless you choose an E-Rig or E-Nail you will need a decent butane torch to heat up your banger to the right dabbing temperature. You should also get a refill for it, since without heat, there’s no dabbing.
Terp pearls are small beads you place inside your banger to help retain heat and get the most out of your hit by spinning and moving your concentrate around the banger. Although they aren’t necessary, we highly recommend them.
Dropdown Reclaim Catcher Adapters extend off of the joint, and have a collector at the bottom. This collector will catch the oil that usually builds up as residue in your water pipe or rig. While maintaining your pieces clean it will also collect these oils to reuse later. The Dropdown Reclaim Catcher Adapters will keep your water pipe clean and will save concentrates at the same time.
The insert will enhance your dabbing by serving as a separate dish which you can heat in your banger or drop in after heating it. This will permit you to enjoy lower temperature dabs, extend the life of your bangers, and avoid “chazzing” (burnt residue). Dropping in your concentrates in an insert adds to the ease of use and cleanup.
A Terp Timer is a laser guided gauge that measures the temperature of your banger and lets you know when it’s reached the right temperature for you to get the best dab.
Once you become an experienced dabber, we don’t doubt you will have tried many of the options mentioned above. Remember, keep those dabs low temp and embrace the many variables dabbing has to offer.
