The fund things about bongs and dab rigs is that they are both pretty versatile: any bongs can be a dab ris, and any dab rigs cab be bong. But there are tons of difference between the two, which we'll break down below.
- WHAT ARE YOU SMOKING?
The main difference between dab rigs and bongs is what you will be consuming out of them.
Bongs are to be used with tobacco, dry herbs, or flowers. Dab & Oil Rigs are to be used with legal concentrates such as wax, oil, or honey.
- SIZE ACTUALLY MATTERS...
This is one of the biggest things that set most dab rigs and bongs apart.
When you are smoking dry herbs or flowers you will want a larger piece with multiple percolators for maximum filtration and cooling. BUT, when you're smoking concentrates you will want a smaller piece with minimal percolators.
- WHICH IS THE CHEAPER OPTION?
Realistically, both options cost around the same price, depending on how fancy you want to get. The thing that makes dab rigs typically cost more than a bong is the required accessories you need to be dab correctly.
