A dab rig is one of the most powerful smoking devices on the market. It’s got an almost unmatched kick to it that will make even the hardiest smokers take a cough or two. That being said, a dab rig can sometimes be a little unwieldy and difficult to hold – especially if it’s made of heavy-duty glass. That’s where silicone dab rigs come in – all of the good flavor (give or take a little less purity) and power of a dab rig without the constant anxiety that it will shatter before your very eyes. Not to mention it’s not as heavy. The problem is that there are so many good silicone dab rigs out there that it’s sometimes hard to be able to get a good sense on what is best for what person. Not to worry!
Below is a little intro and mini-review on a number of excellent dab rigs to help make picking the right one a lot easier. If there is one on this list that has somehow been missed or that you feel should be on our review, don’t hesitate to let us know and we will happily add it!
The oil drum dab rig looks just like it sounds – like an oil drum. For those that aren’t in the know that means it has a wide, cylindrical body with a tube extending upwards as the mouthpiece. Overall, this is a handy, reliable, and easy-to-use dab rig that is inexpensive and would make an excellent starter rig. Not to mention, it takes less than 5 seconds to pull all three parts apart for some of the simplest cleaning (meaning it’s super easy to be able to keep good flavor and maintain cleanliness). Overall, this is a great dab rig for beginners and experienced dabbers alike.
Much like above this dab rig is shaped like it says – a pumpkin! An excellent addition for a spookier smoke sesh or really just anyone that loves Halloween. Overall, the dimensions of this dab rig are a little wider at the base (for that ‘pumpkiny’ feel) but that doesn’t mean the rig is unwieldy or difficult to handle. Overall, another great addition to any dab rig collection because of the great price point, ease of cleaning, and the aesthetic.
This dab rig is meant to be used as an even heavier-duty alternative to other silicone models. Essentially, it works the same as heavy-duty glass bongs or rig – you’re getting an extra helping to make sure that nothing comes between you and the rig. This rig is almost 10 inches tall meaning it’s a little taller than the earlier models discussed and its base even functions as a suction cup for a steadier pull (helpful especially considering there’s a blowtorch being used). Overall, this rig has an amazing price considering the added protection and safety of the heavier layering of silicone and the suction cup.
This is one badass dab rig. The tube/mouthpiece is shaped like the infamous AK-47 assault rifle! Not only does this rig come with heavy-duty silicone but it is an aesthetic work of art that can be used to impress friends or just brighten up a more boring, traditional dab rig collection. This rig comes in at a solid height, is lightweight (by virtue of the silicone), and is inexpensive making it an excellent deal for beginners and veteran dabbers alike. All in all, especially if on the fence, this is an excellent choice just by virtue of spicing things up and having a little creativity.
This is another badass rig! Made with platinum cured silicone and a titanium nail, this dab rig is one heavy-duty SOB. Not to mention, the shape and size is rather convenient to be able to use alone in conjunction with a blowtorch (something that should always be kept in mind). The price is also a fairly good deal all things considered. Last but not least, there are a variety of different coloring patterns that are available and would be most helpful
This is probably one of the cooler dab rigs on the list because this rig is in the shape of a cube, a box really, and contains space inside to hold materials! A storage kit and dab rig all in one. Moreover, this dab rig is also made out of quality silicone that doesn’t wear easily and even has a steel base for that much more security (particularly when placing things inside). Simply pack up all the stuff (mouthpiece, nail, etc) and use the steel base as a storage lid and the entire thing is as mobile (if not more) then any other. While a little pricier than the other dab rigs on this list, it’s hard to argue that all of the amazing additional features – on top of stellar overall performance and reliability – don’t make this dab rig completely worth every penny.
Another great product from Eyce, this dab rig is designed a bit different than the Rig II in that, namely, the mouthpiece points away from the rig at a 45 degree angle and there is a honeycomb diffuser inside the water chamber for maximum water filtration. The name of the game with this rig is power and smoothness and it delivers on both in droves. An excellent choice for anyone but particularly those who love power but need a softer tone. Given all of those features, it is a little pricier than the first initial dab rigs but worth every penny.
This is an awesome rig that is meant to bridge the gap between glass and silicone purity – it’s essentially the ultimate hybrid. For starters, the Waxmaid is a massive glass tube that sits inside of a silicone body/mesh. The silicone is easily removable for easy filling and cleaning of the glass but creates a protective barrier around the most vital parts while still allowing just enough glass showing to see inside. Overall, this dab rig is meant to provide the smoothness and flavor of glass while maximizing silicone protection every way it can. Being so extraordinarily easy to clean and maintain, being flexible in allowing both the smoothness of a glass hit and safety of silicone, and coming it at an amazingly reasonable price the Waxmaid dab rig is a fantastic option and shouldn’t be looked over by anyone – experienced and novice alike.
The oil can dab rig is another excellent product that’s made its way onto this list. For starters, imagine the oil drum dab rig just a bit smaller and you get the oil can. This means that this dab rig is going to be a bit easier to handle, store, and carry around. For someone who wants maximum portability that can be a dealmaker right there. It comes with all the wonderful features of silicone as well – indestructibility, lightweight, etc. Also, important to note, that it comes in at a great price point.
For starters, the Sherlock Dab Rig is obviously a great choice because it’s modelled after the world’s most famous detective’s pipe style of choice. While looking a tad different because it still is a dab rig, the Sherlock styleincorporates a curved, tubular mouthpiece that has a noticeable, and famous, bend in the middle. Besides being an aesthetic masterpiece, this rig contains a hidden compartment for all the accouterments necessary to dab and is made of high quality, ultra-durable platinum cured silicone and even titanium. This rig is a high quality, reliable, and affordable choice.
90s babies unite! The Mario Brother dab rig, as the name suggests, comes in the shape of one of the most famous video game characters ever – Mario. Made of durable silicone and standing at 11” tall this is another impressive work of art to wow and dazzle anyone and make another extraordinary addition to any dab rig collection. The rig itself is able to come apart into separate parts allowing for easy cleaning of all the tubular pipes and chambers (Mario is, after all, a plumber). As affordable as it is, this is an excellent addition to any collection.
No, unfortunately, this dab rig is not made of actual Legos, however, it is made up of some high quality, durable silicone that has extra grip from the Lego-like siding. Take a blast from childhood and make it a welcome addition to taking a break from adulting – not to mention add a rather useful, easy-to-hold, and quality dab rig to any collection. Portable and not too large and able to put out some powerful hits, this dab rig is a solid piece. Best of all, the price point is affordable for anyone.
