A large part of making the right decision is making an informed decision. You look at the facts and weigh the pros and cons right in front of you before being committed to make a purchase. This guide’s goal is to teach you how to choose the best style of dab rigs to suit your lifestyle. Dab rigs come in all shapes and sizes, and at the end of the day, it is a matter of preference. You have to learn how to ask yourself questions before buying a dab rig.
Before Shopping for Dab Rigs – Ask Yourself:
What size dab rig you would like? Personally, I like to picture scenarios in my head to get a clearer idea.
If you are looking for something for at home use or for a group of people, I suggest a regular (standard) size dab rig.
If you are looking for something lighter and can be quickly transported for private use, then perhaps a mini dab rig will do the trick, like this SYN Glass – Hitch Hiker Glass Rig Bubbler Pipe – shown above. Not only do you want to figure out where you would dab or how many people you want to share it with, but where to store it. Storage always has to be kept in mind. People store their dab rigs everywhere such as closets, desks (inside or underneath), foot lockers, or even a small space on a bookshelf. Think of how much room you’ll need for your piece and a safe and private area to keep it in. Hard cases or pipe bags are a good idea for quality pipes you plan on keeping for years.
What Materials Were Used to Make the Dab Rig?
Second, you want to know the materials used to make the dab rig and nails. Learn the differences to each type, that way, you can see which will last longer. Borsicillite glass is great for strong, sturdy dab rigs like this Tesla V2 Recycler Dab Rig by Nexus Glass.
Do you have a preference for certain kinds of glass dab rigs? Do you want one that comes with a curved mouthpiece or with a dome to keep yourself from getting burned? Domes are for that purpose, as well as channeling the vapors from the dab to the mouthpiece.
If you are looking for a nail, pick one of these: titanium (or Ti), quartz, ceramic, or glass. Do you want one that last the longest? Titanium is your material. Are you looking for something that does not require seasoning and tastes good after every hit? Glass and ceramic are pretty popular choices.

Third, choose a dab rig from a reputable company. There is a wide variety of brand names to choose from. How do you know if the company is reputable? Research the brand’s websites and read reviews online, especially from stores that sell the particular glass dab rigs. I like to look at ratings for each rig the business offers and see if it’s right for you.
The Dab Rigs Style Should Represent You
Who forgot about the structure and style of dab rigs? A dab rig can come in any color and get customized. Some rigs have themes from famous movies, television shows, and musicians; so, you may come across cool shapes. If appearance matters to you, then you should look into it.
Last, but not least, the dab rig you’re interested in buying shouldn’t break your budget. You can find small glass dab rigs for around $60-80. But if you can, save up – you have an awesome selection of heady dab rigs to invest in that range from $200 to $2,000 or more. Make sure it is of high quality and that some parts can be replaced easily when necessary. Once you have learned all of the important factors in choosing the best style, you will be ready to make a smart buy.
