The Best Quartz Bangers, Dab Nails, and Carb Caps

The Best Quartz Bangers, Dab Nails, and Carb Caps

As dab nails continue to improve year after year we decided to rank the best quartz bangers of 2019. Quartz has definitely taken off as the preferred material for a dab nail, but there are so many different types of quartz bangers.  If you are new to dabbing with quartz this is a great place to start. We've put together a helpful guide to explain all the popular options in detail and also give tips on how to pick the best quartz nail.  Whether you are on a budget or just trying to find the best banger for the money then this blog will definitely help you. 

The best bangers for dabs must include a carb cap, so we wanted to start with a list of banger and carb cap combinations.  We've paired each of the following bangers with the best carb cap to go along with them.  

Here are the best quartz bangers and dab nails of 2019:

1. Quartz Banger and Directional Airflow Cap

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.  

2. Terp Pearls With Spinning Carb Caps 

This terp pearl with spinning cap combo is the latest in dabbing and one of the most advanced ways of smoking today. when these little "pearls" are coupled with a directional carb cap, the balls spin around the banger and agitate the oil so you don't need to manually pick up and spin/adjust the carb cap to redirect airflow in order to achieve a thorough vaporization.


3. Quartz Thermal Banger

Thermal Banger and Bubble Cap Combo

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. 

4.  Flat Top Banger by AFM

AFM Flat Top Banger and Carb Cap

The Flat Top Banger by AFM is slowly reaching its way to the top.  AFM offers good quartz at a very fair price. AFM impressed us with their perfect seals and solid structure.  This flat design is perfect because the cap lays nice and flat also without any chance of it falling over, as it could happen with a normal angled cut banger. The great thing about these bangers is the shortness of them and they stick nicely outwards so that it goes well with a lot of small rigs. 


5. Core Reactor Banger with Crank Cap

Core Reactor Banger with Crank Cap

The Core Reactor is one of the newer Quartz Nails that is prevailing with the dab community. This nail 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.  

6. Opaque Quartz Banger

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.  Terp Slurper Banger

Terp Slurp Banger with Cap

The Terp Slurper Banger with the 25mm bubble cap is a great bundle for a good time. 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. The design ensures that all of your waxes and oils are vaporized and it all drips bottom dish and the airflow slits in the bottom dish which allows air to push your wax back into the main part of the terp slurper banger to be vaporized. Add this to your next sesh and you will be the life of the party.


8.  Thermochromic Banger


Never burn yourself with a hot banger again. The Thermochromic banger has color shifting quartz glass particles in the chamber that change from light to dark as your banger heats up. Once you get used to this banger you can pretty much eyeball when the right temperature has been achieved by learning to recognize the shade of color that corresponds to your preferred dabbing temp. Not only is it useful, but its really cool too.

9. Diamond Knot Loop Banger

Heres to some serious innovation, the diamond knot loop banger is a 3 piece quartz nail. It includes the banger, a removable glass knot coil, and a cap with an extended tip. This design is incredible for those who like to take enormous dabs, the oil will continuously recycle through the knot coil for a perfect hit with minimal waste. 

The Best Carb Caps for Quartz Bangers

The Quartz Banger is still the most popular dab nail, with that being said it also has the most variety of carb caps. Aside from all those insanely unique carb caps, we wanted to rank the best carb caps for quartz bangers that are actually practical enough to purchase and popular in the dab community.

Here is our top 5 carb caps for the quartz banger:

1. The Puddle Pusher

The Puddle Pusher is a directional carb cap with a ridged wheel to hold it by, making it super fun to spin and twirl the puddles around inside of your quartz banger. This carb cap has a very solid build with the weight of it being nicely flat and even so that it stays on your banger with a firm hold.

2. Hover Carb Cap

Hover Carb Cap for Banger

The hover carb cap is another beautifully shaped directional carb cap.  This lid shaped carb cap is easy to grab with it's long neck design.  This elongated top is fun to twirl between your fingers and easy to pick up. 

3. Directional Airflow Carb Cap with Marble Top

Directional Airflow Carb Cap with Side Hole

I guess you can probably see that directional carb caps are the way to go, this solid design is no different, we like this one because covers the banger nice and evenly and has a cool marble to hold it by.  Another good thing is that the hole is on the side of the glass so you won't have to worry about accidentally covering it with your thumb. 

4. Bubble Cap

Bubble Carb Cap for Quartz Buckets

The Bubble Carb Cap is widely popular now and really convenient because it shoots air just about anywhere you want. Also, it has a nice tight seal especially with the flat top bangers and buckets.  As you may already know the bubble cap pairs really nicely with the thermal bangers as well.  Just swivel that tip around and watch the spout pin point the air and push those puddles around without cooling down the nail too much.

Best E-nail Bangers and Nails

We wanted to showcase some of the new and best quartz enail bangers in the market today.  Some of the previous ones were titanium and the early quartz ones were not really that great, but now there are some very good quartz enail bangers out, so here are our top two picks for enail bangers right now. 

1.  Classic E-Nail Banger

This is our favorite quartz enail banger because it has great air flow, a firm grip, and does not slide off the banger.  This thing will stay pressed against the coil so you can be exact with the low temp dabs.  This comes in two coil sizes, 16mm and 20mm

2. The Diamond Knot Quartz E-Nail Banger

Quartz Diamond Knot - 20mm

Finally a good e-nail quartz nail that holds the coil firmly in place. The diamond knot nail comes in two diameters 16mm and 20mm.  We love this design because the coil slides right over nice and firmly so there is good contact with the coil.  The bottom of the bucket is widened to hold up the coil all the way around that way there is no chance up of it slipping off as with other e-nail bangers.
