What are Dab Rigs?
So what are dab rigs? A dab rig, or oil rig, is a water pipe or bong that is used to smoke concentrates by using a heated nail to vaporize the material. Now that explanation may be simple, and to the point, however, the art of defining a dab rig is a bit more complicated. There are many different types of dab rigs to choose from. There are also many different types of attachments that you can add to change the dab rig. We are here to give you the run down and make you an expert.
Anatomy of a Dab Rig
A dab rig has several parts: a base, a can, a stem, a nail, and a mouthpiece. There can also be a reclaim attachment used for gathering reclaim. Using a dab rig that is smooth to draw is part of the formula. They’re best smaller and with less water. Having a large bong to dab with will make the draw longer and less enjoyable. Concentrates tend to be more expensive, so you should treat it as such a get a good pipe to use with it.
Quality glass can make all the difference. A cheaply made rig, or thin glass ones, can be prone to breaking. You don’t want to be the one that sets it down too hard during a session and breaks it :(. Angled mouthpiece oil rigs, such as the Grav Labs Flare Rig
are great for beginners because it will make the rig much easier to work with. Most rigs are made from Borosilicate glass, which is more durable. The nail, which is the part that you will be heating up, can be made from either titanium, quartz, glass, or ceramic. Titanium and quartz are the most common and most durable types of nails.
Your choice of heat sources is simple. Use a standard torch with butane or an electric coil or e-nail. It doesn’t take a scorching white hot nail to dab, in fact, it is quite the opposite. You shouldn’t use the nail until it has cooled down enough to where it isn’t glowing. After a little time, you will figure out the sweet spot for temperature.
