Does size really matter? In some cases yes, however in relation to dab rigs the size does not determine the strength piece. In the cannabis world many think the bigger the glass the better. Not necessarily. Big giant glass rigs are great and all but they do have their downsides. Cleaning a giant piece is a pain and when you want a quick session having to drag out your giant rig might be a bit much.
Small or micro rigs are great for a quick sesh by yourself and are much easier to keep clean. And do not doubt a smaller piece they still have equally as great function, if not better. Also anyone who takes dabs knows that it requires a lot of tools and attention. A rig that is easier to hold and maintain is a better investment because you can keep it for longer.
Here are some awesome mini, micro, and pendant size dab rigs that you definitely should add to your collection.
4″ Mini Ice Cube Oil Rig by Glob Squad
This is one of our most popular miniature rigs and for good reason. It stands at 4 inches tall and has a 54mm glass thickness making it great for travel. Don’t be fooled by its small size though, it still has all the great features you would find on a big rig. It features 3 hole diffuser, angled mouthpiece, and 14mm oil dome. A great value, this affordable rig is perfect for both first-time smokers or experienced stoners who want a simple, portable piece.
5″ Banger Hanger Mini Tube by Glob Squad
Saying this piece is nice is an understatement. Not only will the gold fummed glass blow you away on this mini banger hanger but the function is also pretty incredible for it’s size.
