Dab rigs are one of the most popular ways to vaporize concentrates and extracts. A dab rig is pretty much a smaller water bong that is used specifically for concentrates. The only difference between a bong and a wax rig is the bowl piece that comes with your bong is replaced with a quartz banger often referred to as a dab nail. The quartz banger looks like a bucket and is heated up before you put your concentrates in it.
Dabbing connoisseurs say that it’s a much tastier experience than smoking flowers. It's no wonder wax rigs are getting more and more popular each year. Shopping for a dab rig has never been easier and we couldn't be more excited to show you the latest designs and innovations.

How Do You Use a Dab Rig?
A dab rig consists of two main components, a rig and a nail. The rig is the actual water pipe and the nail attaches to the rig. Using a dab rig is pretty simple.
Step 1. Heat up the nail using a butane torch. Once the dabbing nail begins to turn red, allow it to cool for 30-40 seconds.
Step 2. After it has cooled down the user will scoop up some wax or oil and put it into the hot nail. The concentrate will then slowly start to vaporize and you can begin inhaling. As you draw air the vapor is pulled through the dab nail and will travel into the dab bong and filter through the water to provide a cool and flavorful dabbing experience.
Are Glass Dab Rigs Worth It?
People love glass dab rigs because of how easily they vaporize the concentrate. A dab rig is definitely worth the investment if you enjoy concentrates, which most people do. Rigs are great for many reasons.
- They maximize vapor production while minimizing waste.
- They last a long time with proper care and cleaning.
- They outperform other little gadgets and devices.
- You can control the temperature simply by applying more or less heat.
A dab nail is similar to how a traditional bong bowl works and this is why people really get into these. However, a nail is typically made of quartz to withstand more heat and offer a clean taste. This is why glass dab rigs are ideal for all types of concentrates regardless of the consistency. While many electric rigs operate at only one temperature, a traditional glass dab rig allow you to control the temperature by applying more or less heat.
What Do I Need To Start Dabbing?
To get started with your glass dab rig you will need a few accessories.
1. Quartz Banger
All of our dabbing rigs come equipped with a standard quartz banger nail. But many people do upgrade the nail for a nicer one with more benefits.
2. Butane Torch
A butane torch is perfect for dabbing, this will be used to heat the quartz banger.
3. Carb Cap
A carb cap is a lid that goes over your banger, this will improve efficiency and allow you to control the airflow. This accessory is not needed but it does help a lot with vapor production and is recommended.
4. Dab Tool
A dab tool is used to dab the concentrate on to the hot dab nail or banger. Depending on what type of concentrate you have you may want a dab tool with a scoop or a sharp pick. Having a good tool like this not only will help keep the flavor of your wax intact but also give you more vapor and less burnt remnants after you have dabbled your nail.

If you’re looking to buy dab rigs online, look no further than Badass Glass. We offer one of the largest selections of quality styles at affordable prices, with free shipping on all orders. Here are some different types of the coolest dab rigs to consider when making your next purchase.
1. Glass Dab Rigs
A glass dab rig is ideal for daily use, the simplistic design is easy to clean and maintain. Whether you need a cheap dab rig that is travel friendly or a nice sturdy one for the house, we've got you covered.
2. Mini Dab Rigs
Mini dab rigs are a popular choice amongst daily dabbers. Not only are they compact and portable but they often get referred to as flavor savers. The reason being is that when you take a dab from a mini rig you have less water to dilute the taste of your concentrates. When using a mini rig we recommend using a quartz nail with a longer neck so that when you are dabbing it, the hot nail isn’t close to your face.
3. Electric Dab Rigs
Electric dab rigs or e-rigs are the hottest craze right now. These are great because they eliminate the need for a torch. The portable design is great for on the go. You may be familiar with some of the more popular devices such as Puffco Peak and the Dr. Dabber smart rigs.
4. Recycler Dab Rigs
A recycler is a glass dab rig that creates a loop for the water to circulate. As the perc pushes water and bubbles up the chamber a recycler will loop it back down to the perc creating a continuous flow of water. These are really cool to look at and are much more intricate than your classic dab rig. Some users say it provides a better flavor because it carries the vapor closer to the mouthpiece.
5. Nectar Collectors
A nectar collector or dab straw is a dab rig that is vertically designed to vaporize extracts. It consists of a middle chamber and quartz nail that fits into the bottom. The middle chamber holds water to cool and filter the smoke so you get a clean and tasty hit. People love nectar collectors because they are so quick and easy to use. You simply torch the nail at the bottom and bring the hot nail on to the concentrate. You then take a dab directly from a glass dish or dab mat as if you were using a straw.
6. Silicone Dab Rigs
Silicone wax rigs are gaining popularity due to its durable construction and cheaper price points. Similar to glass rigs they also provide great functionality with all sorts of percolators and styles. The best thing about silicone rigs is that when you heat up a titanium or quartz nail you don't have to worry about the joint of the rig cracking. Oftentimes the metal nails will get hot and expand and crack the joint on a glass rig. Silicone dab rigs are usually a lot easier to clean as well since most styles can be taken apart. The reclaim buildup tends to wipe off easily.
