Quartz Bangers: Different Styles and How to Use Tutorial
Take on the world of Dabbin' like a pro with quartz bangers
Quartz Bangers are a style of nail used for smoking concentrates inside of a rig or a water pipe. Today we're going to go over a bunch of different styles that we carry from the most generic, to the high roller. We've got a few rigs to show you, and personal preference of mine on one of the nails, how to use it, how to take a dab, and how to keep your quartz bangers clean.
Types of Bangers
This standard banger is the most basic and simple to use of all of the banger styles. The thin walled banger takes much less heat to reach a dabbing temp and cools quickly as well. Made with a large quartz dish these bangers come in all glass on glass sizes 10mm, 14mm, 18mm both male and female joints. Perfect for the starting dabber.
A slight upgrade from the standard style, the thermal bangers are designed to keep your dabs vaping at a much lower temp. These bangers are designed to keep the heated quartz from touching the dabs directly, causing a longer and much more enjoyable dabbing experience.
Thermal Insert Bangers
A new design similar to the regular thermal bangers are these thermal insert bangers. They come with a seperate quartz dish that you place your dabs into. This allows for your quartz dish to stay very clean and still have the long and flavorful dab that you come to expect with a thermal banger.
Reactor Core Bangers
Letting the good times roll with a reactor core banger. These bangers have solid quartz cylinder in the center to hold heat and retain a much longer dabbing experience. This banger takes a little longer to heat up, and it stays hotter longer, retaining its heat for a long dab. The reactor core banger works best when combined with a directional carb cap. A must have for the daily dabber.
High End Quartz
At the top of scale for quartz bangers, we run into a few brands that play above them all. The Joel Halen troughs and the Mayoral Bangers are a few high end quartz nails we carry at the shops. USA assembled and designed with the high class dabber in mind for a perfect dab every time.
Let's Get Dabbing
Once we have decided the style of quartz banger we are going to add to our rig or water pipe, it's time to try and take our first dab. Make sure to have all of your necessities handy and ready to go. You're going to need a torch, a dab tool, the concentrate that your going to dab, and your assembled rig with your banger. Carb Caps and other accessories are a great addition to a perfect dab but not necessarily needed.
Heating up your Quartz Banger
Take your torch and ignite it, aiming the flame away from anything flammable at all times. Make sure to evenly distribute heat on the base of your banger without heating up the glass from your rig or water pipe. Your banger will only take about 20 seconds or so to heat up to a proper temp.
*Note, If the banger starts to change colors and glow stop heating and let cool
Make sure to allow your banger to cool for about ten seconds to make sure the intense heat from the torch dissipates and cools to a proper dab temp. Once you are satisfied with the proper temperature, go ahead and use your dab tool to place a dab into your quartz banger.
As you place your dab into your banger, start to draw from the mouthpiece to allow the vapor to move through your rig or water pipe. If you have a carb cap, then now is the time to place your cap on top of the banger. The carb cap will create a diffusion of air and smoke, allowing your dab to roll and make for a much longer and satisfying hit.
Thanks for taking some time to learn a little about quartz bangers and how to use them. Following these steps will have even the most novice dabber dabbing like a pro in no time at all.
