10 best dab rigs to get you stratospherically high
These dab rigs deliver maximum the vapor cloudage, flavor and buzz.
Dabbing is a very effective way to get very high, very fast.With the right dab rig, you can inhale pure, cool vapor clouds. But a dab rig also has to be durable for day-to-day use. While artful, one-of-a-kind dab rigs certainly have their place in the world of glassblowing, production dab rigs are produced in quantity. That makes them much more affordable and thus replaceable. Here are 10 of the best dab rigs to get you stratospherically high on a regular basis.
Brandon Clark Mini Fab Egg
This Brandon Clark creation comes with a 4-slit percolator and a 14mm quartz banger bucket. It is, quite simply, one of the best dab rigs available. You can add a Grav Labs domeless quartz nail for $20 more, a Quartz Tech Banger Quartz nail with a 22mm head for $35, or a Joel Halen V2 Trough Quartz Nail for $140. The rig stands between 7 and 8 inches tall, with “green stardust” accents. $1,400.00
Mobius RDS II Matrix Recycler
Like its older sibling, the RDS, the Mobius RDS II is awesomely functional, but now in a smaller compact size. (RDS stands for Removable Downstem.) Dab vapor diffuses through the removable matrix downstem first. It then travels with the water up into the in-cycler, where it separates from the water and is inhaled. The water spins around and drains slowly, due to the curvature of the recycling tube. Crafted by California’s Mobius Glass, responsible for some of the best dab rigs in the world. $450.00
Nexus Small Puck Dab Rig
These sweet 3.5-inch high mini puck rigs come from the folks at Nexus Glass. In the category of “best dab rigs under 4 inches,” these are strong contenders. They’re available in a variety of colors. Despite their compact size, they pack a punch. The 10mm polished joint on the main chamber connects to a diffused downstem for smooth, airy vapor. The piece comes with a 10mm polished female dome for dabbing.
MiniNail™ x Purr® Swiss Honeycomb Tube
MiniNail™ and Purr® collaborated to make an e-nail inspired Swiss Honeycomb Tube. The piece includes a large, sturdy base for use with e-nails (no torch needed!). The handcrafted honeycomb drum percolator has 19 points of diffusion. Made in California of thick Wall Schott glass; about 9 inches tall. $260.00
Purr Hourglass Honeycomb Dab Rig
This American-made hourglass dab rig from Purr Glass is durable, easy to use, and compact. It stands 7 inches tall and is made of tough borosilicate glass. The diffused downstem has multiple slits; the vapor is further cooled and filtered through a honeycomb percolator. A quartz nail is provided. $239.99
MGW Circ Perc Bubbler
New York-based Manifest Glassworks (MGW) has been making high-quality glass for both dry herbs and concentrates for a minute. Their 8-inch Circ Perc bubbler is perfect for dabbing. The single percolator offers minimal drag when pulling. The bent neck keeps dirty water out of your mouth. $189.99
‘The Atomic Nucleus’ 8 Arm Recycler
This monster is the larger version of The Nucleus. It features eight hollow recycling arms connecting two separate top chambers. It towers to 16 inches tall and contains to-die-for percolation. Four hanging inline percolators, as well as 4 tire perks, filter the dab vapor for a truly scientific dabbing experience. (Note that you’ll need to choose a ceramic nail at an additional $5, a quartz banger bucket at $12, or a titanium nail at $16.) $164.00
The Boost Black Edition is the next generation in the Dr. Dabber Boost lineup. It features larger nails, luxury packaging, and a modular heating element. The Boost is a portable, battery-operated dab rig, using a titanium domeless nail much as with traditional glass dab rigs (no torch is required). One battery charge is good for 20 to 30 uses. A quartz nail and a ceramic nail are also included. The device heats to an optimal temperature with a button press. $159.95
Diamond Glass Hang Man Circle Perc
This piece by Diamond Glass is a dual chamber, two-stage rig using two circle percolators to diffuse your vapor to perfection. The excellent filtration could make this rig your favorite. It stands 8.5 inches tall, with color accents (green, orange, red, or purple) on mouthpiece, base, percs, and oil dome. American made with high-quality scientific glass. $130.00
The Circuit Dab Rig, from Grav Labs in Texas, creates whirlpools and water vortexes to cool your vapor. The double turbine percolator kicks into action when you draw. Water tornadoes around the base and produces mini-whirlpools. Hit the rig as hard as you like, though; there’s no splash back. The rig stands 7 inches tall and comes with a 14mm female domeless quartz nail. $71.99.
