Whether you’re buying a dab rig in a local smoke shop or browsing through an online head shop, choosing is hard if you don’t know what you’re getting. Here are the different types of dab rigs, as well as their functionality for you to get that perfect match for your session.
This is as basic as a dab rig gets. The standard dab rig is about 9″ tall, just enough to let you enjoy the full flavor of your concentrates.
Fans of the minimalist design and beginners love a standard dab rig because it’s simple. You have a mouthpiece, water chamber, downstem, and nail. Is it like a bong? In a way, yes. However, unlike bongs, you won’t see a dab rig that’s 34″ tall. That’s because vapor becomes stale the longer it’s exposed to air. The moment it rises up from the water chamber, it’s already starting to react to air. The faster you clear the smoke, the better you’ll appreciate the flavor of your dabs.
Cute. Small. Highly portable. This is the best type of dab rig for those who are always on the go or have a small living space. Don’t let this size fool you. Even contenders find using mini dab rigs a worthy device for a strong, potent session.
One example is the Pulsar Diffused Downstem Mini Dab Rig. This rig is 4.5″ tall, which can sit comfortably on the palm of your hand. With its small size, it’s good for those who can’t take big hits. It’s suitable for micro-dosing and instant sessions. What it’s mostly good for is for dabbers who wish to enjoy the full flavor of their concentrates.
Now, if you’re always traveling and going on heavy adventures, you need a dab rig that will tough it out with you. That’s what a silicone dab rig is for. Don’t worry, gone are the days when you’ll get dab rigs that taste just like your car’s old tires.
Silicone dab rigs are now made from medical-grade platinum treated silicone that has higher heat resistance. Take, for example, our EYCE Platinum Cured Silicone Dab Rig. EYCE improved silicone to make an excellent tool for dabbing. With the collar around the base of the titanium nail, your rig has extra protection against direct heat.
With such a durable body, you can bring that dab rig in camping trips, vacations, road trips, and you don’t have to worry about breaking glass. You don’t have to cringe and shudder in terror when you see the baggage boy hurl your bag in the luggage compartment. Your dab rig stays whole, complete, and remains in shape.
If using a standard rig is too hot for you, you might want to consider using a recycler. What it does is that it “recycles” your hits, providing you with better filtration and cooler hits.
One example is our Multicolor Accent Boro Glass Inline Perc Recycler. As you draw, vapor and water cycle up to the recycling drain tube before going down again to the water chamber before flowing up. This cycle goes in an almost infinite loop until you release the pressure and clear the rig. You’ll feel that the hits are cooler and cleaner compared to other types of rigs.
If you stay away from dab rigs because of hot torches and nails, there’s still a way for you to enjoy dabs through e-Rigs.
We’ll take Pulsar RoK as an example. Without a torch, this gives you 3 volume settings for your hits. Through a press of a switch, you can have low-temp, mid-temp, and high-temp dabs with lesser guesswork compared with torches. Turn on the RoK mode, and you have hands-free dabbing ready on demand.
