This durable banger is crafted beautifully with high quality quartz with a beveled edge and a an extra thick diamond shaped bottom to help retain heat for a much longer time. The secret to a good dab is the nail that you use, and we have done the hard work for you by providing the AFM banger with safe, consistent and clean heating!

The Opaque quartz banger, the banger of the future. The thick, opaque bottom banger is designed to change color when hot to give you a much better idea of when to take your dab by seeing exactly how how it is.
Made with 100% quality quartz, this indestructible piece takes just a few seconds to heat and can hold heat for up to 60 seconds!
7. Beveled Edge Flat Top Banger
I'm sure you could guess what's so great about this banger. As the name suggests, it features a beveled edge around the rim to create a much better seal with the bubble cap. This classic banger is still the best banger for dabs because of how easy it is to use and maintain. All you need is some cotton swabs or glob mobs and this thing will stay clean and clear for a long time.
I think this style will get more popular as it is still very new but we love how firmly the cap sits on the bucket.
8. Round Bottom Banger
The Bear Quartz Round Bottom Banger is the easiest way to enjoy big, tasty dabs. Enjoy superior flavor and a clean dab by eliminating hard-to-reach residue. The banger has a beveled edge that creates a seal between the bucket and your cap so you can enjoy low temp dabs. This rounded bottom design has all of the benefits of a traditional banger with an easy to clean design that is made with thick quartz.
9. Splash Guard Banger
This is one of the newest entries on the list, the splash guard banger. This will keep the oil from climbing straight up and spilling into your rig. So far it seems to be gaining praise from the dab community. The thick durable build is also a reason this one of the best quartz bangers.

The Thermal Banger with Bubble Cap is still a wonderful experience as it reaches all the puddles. This banger is highly effective when it comes to the huge dabs that fill up the entire cup. Watch as the directed airflow vaporizes the oil with minimal heat loss.
11. Core Reactor Banger
The Core Reactor is one of the newer quartz nails that is prevailing with the dab community. This nail from AFM features a flat top design but also has an extra solid piece of quartz a.k.a. the core at the bottom of the dish.
This will retain the heat much longer as the crank cap pushes air all around the core moving the puddles around and vaporizing every bit of oil.

The quartz banger is still the king of quartz nails and it remains the king. With so many different carb cap options, the glass banger is always a prime choice.
Above we have one of the most popular and effective carb caps the directional airflow carb cap.

The quartz blender is one of the newest entries and is certainly climbing it's way to the top. As a favorite in the dab nail market, this banger features a design unlike any other quartz banger on the market today and provides you with the best flavor possible from your concentrates.

Different Types of Dab Bangers
When it comes to dab bangers, there are many different types to choose from. However the two main categories are bangers that spin pearls or stationery bangers. Today, many people are into dab bangers with a spinning function. The spinning function is pretty cool to look at and use however it is a bit tougher to clean.
Our best banger list features many types of bangers that offer a spinning function. Here are some bangers that spin:
- Terp Slurper
- AFM Terp Dish
- Bear Quartz Auto Pro
- Bear Quartz Hourglass
These usually feature some type of angled slits that will circulate the airflow and get your dab pearls to spin.
There are also many popular designs that don't have a spinning mechanism, however you can still create the vortex using a spinning carb cap. Here are some other types of bangers that can be used with a spin cap:
- Beveled Edge Banger
- Round Bottom Banger
- Core Reactor Banger
- Splash Guard Banger
Both designs are great in their own ways depending on your needs. If you are traveling and want a good banger with less parts and pearls then you might prefer the classic flat top bangers, those are easy to cap and easy to clean. But if you have an amazing dab station at home and want a more intricate design then you will definitely enjoy the terp slurper.
