First let’s start with the two basics of quartz banger and dab rig sizing:
1. Determine which Gender quartz banger you need to fit your dab rig
If your dab rig is a male joint ( a.k.a Direct Inject) then you’re going to want to buy a female quartz nail or banger. Or if you have a female joint on your dab rig, then you’re going to want to buy a male banger. Can you use a male banger on a male joint? Yes, but you’ll need to buy a female to female glass adapter to properly fit your dab rig setup. Same goes with a female quartz banger with a female joint: you’ll need a to buy a male to male dab rig adapter for it to fit properly. We suggest that you keep things simple by buying a male banger to go with your female joint, or a female banger to go with your male dab rig joint.
