Dabbing Quartz FAQs
How do you take a dab with a banger?
The basic process for taking a dab in a banger (also called a nail) involves heating up the banger, generally with a butane dab torch. When your quartz reaches your preferred temperature you use a dab tool to place your concentrates inside the banger where they will vaporize. Carb caps placed on top of the banger ensure none of the vapor is wasted. Quartz bangers should generally be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol while warm (but not hot) to keep their appearance pristine.
Why are there so many banger styles?
The dab world is relatively new in the timeline of cannabis consumption and as such we are experiencing rapid development and innovation. Different style bangers have different properties in terms of what inserts they can accomodate, how much air flows through the banger (and where), how long they retain heat, and many other factors. While terp slurpers have become a very popular standard, fun designs like Banger Supply's Turbine shows you can accomplish more with less.
What glass connection size is best for dabbing?
Like everything when it comes to dabs there is no unanimous best, just lots of great options and individual preferences. We tend to carry our affordable bangers in 14mm as it is the most common connection size and maximizes the chances a customer can use their current gear. For mid and top-tier products we go with a 10mm connection as we like how it slightly restricts airflow to maximize vaporization given the awesome heat retention of high-quality quartz. We also carry a host of reducers and glass adapters in case you're looking at a banger that is a different connection size from your current rig.
