The XL Bell-Bottom Banger is designed for maximum flavour, and with ease of cleaning in mind. It's ideal for the cold-start lovers. We've found that it works best without an insert but will still work exceptionally well with them too. If inserts are what you're really into, the classic banger design may be a better option for you & worth a look.
This banger, like the regular-sized version, encourages your concentrates to stay low on the banger, instead of riding the walls. The bell-shaped flare increases the surface area, which helps keep the concentrate in the heated area, instead of climbing the colder walls.
The XL Bell-Bottom Banger features a small 'divet' in the centre of the bottom. It helps hold your concentrate in a slightly cooler spot to help avoid terpene degradation between inhales (for all you crazy people who like to take 3+ hauls off your dab lol). This divet is a slightly thinner spot that's more responsive to reheats, making it easier to not overshoot your temperatures. This helps preserve terpenes & flavonoids instead of destroying them with excessive heat. If you're a flavour chaser, no matter what banger you use, nothing will ever taste as good as the first pull.
Surface area is also key if flavour is what's most important to you. There's a point of diminished return, and we definitely tried to push the limits with this XL version.
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. They've all got a chamfered top edge to help the bubble cap function properly.
Each banger will come with a quartz insert 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).
