While it is nice to find a rig that is the dabbing equivalent of the Mona Lisa, function is the #1 priority. If you want a pipe that does exactly what it says on the tin, invest in the Mobius glass 10mm RDS Incycler as it is compact & clean, spins water and stacks bubbles just like a high-grade rig is supposed to. The RDS’ removable downstem comes out at an angle and offers the classic ‘bong’ feeling while being far more efficient. You also can’t fault its versatility because it enables you to use dry herb if you run out of concentrate.
During our review of the Mobius RDS , we discovered that it provided us with delightfully cool vapor. This is because the downstem’s diffusion bubbles up to the incycling chamber. As a result, you can rip as hard as possible and never have to contend with water shooting into your mouth. In fact, you can operate it without the nail or bowl and still avoid the unwanted bong water taste. The RDS is unique on this list as it’s the only top 10 entrant that has no fixed downstem. Even so, it performs admirably and with a price tag of $365, it offers value for money too. In many ways, the RDS is a classic dab rig because of the removable downstem.
This feature can be a burden if you don’t like storing extra pieces. Otherwise, the Mobius RDS Incycler is a fine piece of equipment that is well worth purchasing. Nexus Glass has not been around long but has made waves within the industry ever since it made its debut in Denver, Colorado on International Weed Day, April 20 (4/20). It won the ‘Best in Glass’ award and has created a stir on social media ever since. Nexus is a Southern-Californian-based firm and has pledged to make high-quality rigs from glass without overcharging customers. All of its products are created from high-grade borosilicate glass so while they may create inexpensive glass dub rigs , there is nothing ‘cheap’ about the products. During testing for our Nexus Nano Puck Rig review, it was clear that this new device was much more than a gimmick. It is designed to look like an ice hockey puck and the German Schott Glass construction guarantees durability.

Its diminutive size means it works well as a portable rig and you can rely on the bent neck to keep you clear of the hot nail.

At a price of $200 , it is a relatively cheap way to enter the dabbing world and you can buy it from the official Nexus website. As it uses a male joint, the hits are a little warmer than in rigs with a second chamber or a recycling chamber. However, it is far more than merely a portable and cheap rig.
