Swampy was lucky enough to come across a good contact for getting custom quartz products made, so he jumped at the chance to get some high-quality bangers brought to life from designs he'd put to paper.
There are a lot of sub-par quality bangers out there & we wanted to get some better-designed products for ourselves & friends. Then we decided to add on a few more so we could have them available on the website.
Swampy consulted with 5 of the pickiest dab connoisseurs he knows, to be able to design extremely well-functioning bangers, that could still remain budget-friendly. They're designed for maximum flavour, high-quality reclaim (if you're into that), and to accept most inserts on the market. The functionality of each style is pretty great even without an insert, so you may find yourself going without.
All the bangers are designed to be used with a glass bubble carb cap (called bubble caps). We're very excited to be working with Dreamer Glass, a local-Manitoba glassblower (and one of the 5), for designing & manufacturing bubble carb caps for the bangers & terp pearl sets for the terp slurper. We'll have a few colour options available at any given time, that can change periodically.
The quartz used is of high-quality, and doesn't chaz easily. This isn't a guarantee that it won't, it still can with some abuse, but it will happen less easily & will be easier to clean than most. They've been crafted beautifully, and are very straight, plumb & level. As long as your glass is good, they'll sit true. The bangers have all got a chamfered top edge to help the bubble cap function properly.
Each banger will come with a quartz insert, various-sized terp pearls, and a small bottle of Dark Crystal quartz & glass cleaner. The quartz inserts are simple and won't help with flavour the way gemstone ones will. They will help give you an idea on if you'd like to spend the money & do the maintenance for a gemstone insert though (we don't sell these, but understand there's always a number of people who are interested). The terp pearls are a simple borosilicate, and although effective, they won't be as durable as some of the other materials.
