The 10mm Quartz Male Banger Nail is a unique type of domeless nail. It has a curve shape that puts it at a distance from the joint. Because you'll be heating the nail further away from the joint, it will prevent the glass from getting heat stress or fractures.
Before you start dabbing with your new quartz banger nail, it's important to season it first. You need to prepare a very small amount of shatter or wax.
Next, heat your nail for 45-60 seconds. This will burn off any tiny residual substances that may be on your nail.
Let the quartz banger nail cool for about ten seconds. Get your prepared amount of shatter or wax. Then start coating your nail. Repeat this activity two more times.
If you don't want to use shatter or wax to season your nail, you can heat your nail with a torch for 45-60 seconds. Then use tongs to remove your nail and place it in a bowl of water. Repeat this step several times and you're nail should be good to go.
How to use a Banger Nail?
First, you need to prepare your shatter or wax with the tip of your carb cap or a regular dab tool.
To take a low temp dab hit, you need to heat your nail for 10-15 seconds. For high-temperature dab hits, you'll need to heat your nail for around 20 seconds or until the nail begins to have a red glow.
Then let the nail cool for a few seconds.
Begin to inhale slowly and smoothly as you gently touch the dab of wax to the nail.
When there is no more wax on your dabber and the chamber is clear, exhale and you may repeat as necessary.
How to clean a Banger Nail?
After you are finished with your dab session, if there is any residual concentrate on the nail, burn it off using the torch to prevent any sticky build up.
Another thing people do to clean their quartz nail is to pour 91% isopropyl in a bowl and make sure the nail is submerged in alcohol. After several minutes, you may take out the nail and let it air dry.
What is the difference between Quartz, Titanium, and Ceramic Nails?
Titanium Nails can withstand temperatures necessary for dabbing. You don't have to worry about it ever cracking or shattering. Some people complain about the taste of a dab hit when using a Titanium nail, but if you season it properly, the taste should be fine.
Quartz Nails are generally cheaper and have a very clean taste. It takes longer to heat a quartz nail and it doesn't hold the heat for as long.
Ceramic Nails provide a very clean tasting hit. It holds the heat for a really long time too. BE CAREFUL touching it because you may think at times it isn't hot anymore, but it'll still be hot and burn you. One of the negatives about ceramic nails is that it's known to crack and shatter if heated improperly. You want to apply the heat in a circular motion to keep it even. As long as you're heating it evenly, slowly, and never until it gets glowing red, the nail will work just fine.
How do I choose the right domeless nail?
There is no RIGHT domeless nail. It's all about preference. The best way to decide which nail you want to buy, follow the following criteria below:
What size Rig do you have? The size of your rig the first question you ask. Also, if you have multiple rigs with different sizes, then it'll be important for you to get an interchangeable nail so it can fit both of your dab rigs.
Do I prefer owning an indestructible nail or owning a nail that may crack or shatter if I used it incorrectly? This is a question you need to ask yourself because that will help you decide should you get a Titanium, Ceramic, or Quartz nail. If you want something that will never break, get a Titanium nail.
Is Flavor the most important to me? If flavor matters to you, then you'll probably want to buy a quartz or ceramic nail.
