Dab rigs, or vapor rigs, are water pipes designed for vaporizing dabs (oil extracted from a plant). Typically dab rigs are much smaller than water pipes designed for smoking herbs. Vaporizing dabs is much smoother than smoking herb, so less diffusion is required. But for those of you who want a heavily diffused dab rig, we have those too. You can find dozens of vapor rigs in every shape and size imaginable here at The Dab Lab. With so many options it can be tough to decide which one to get! Here are some things to consider when choosing a new dab rig.
Using the “Sort” and “Filter” features is a great way to narrow down the search.
PRICE - Use the “sort” option to sort the products from lowest to highest price or vice versa. Check it out. We have super affordable rigs for as low as $25.00 with a nail! Or you can head on over to our Cheap Dab Rigs sub-category, which shows you only our most affordable rigs.
SIZE – Yes, most dab rigs are smaller, but it’s not a hard and fast rule. We carry a recycler rig that is 15” tall! It’s all about what you want. We carry everything from pocket size travel rigs to large desktop dab rigs. Use the “filter” option to specify a height range you prefer.
DIFFUSION – You don’t need a lot of diffusion for dabs. A simple multi-hole percolator does a great job and is often preferred. But for larger dabs (globs) more diffusion might be necessary. Recyclers create a fair amount of diffusion and are one of the most popular styles of dab rigs. Use the “filter” option to specify a type of preferred percolator / function. Also, check the function videos on each product page to see how each percolator works (turn up your volume).
STYLE - Dab rigs come in many shapes & colors. Pick something unique that fits your personality. You can use the “filter” option to designate between clear or colored rigs. Clear dab rigs have a very classy look, but some color or glass art may fit your personality better. Also, view the sub-categories below to see more specific styles like Sculpted Dab Rigs.
BRANDS – If you already know the brands you like and trust, use the “filter” option to view only those brands. The best selling brands for dab rigs on The Dab Lab include: Bare Glass, Leisure Glass, Mr. Flow, and AFM Glass
ACCESSORIES – If you already have a nail, consider getting a rig with a slide so you have the option to use it to smoke herbs too. You can always get a nail separately, but if you are cost conscience you might want to get a vapor rig that comes with a quartz nail already.
