For the price, you’ll receive a clean, gorgeous looking rig that is relatively simple to clean. Regular maintenance is a pain and the percolator holes could be larger but overall, the Toro Jet Perc Amber is not just a good dab rig, it is one of the finest on the market. Although it is a relatively new company, Beta Glass has quickly gained a reputation for creating dab rigs of exceptional quality for a reasonably affordable price.
While its official website is devoid of pomp and circumstance, there is something special about the brand’s Omega 2.0 mode, which can also be purchased wholesale . There are versions with lovely colored accents on the lips and percolators but you’ll save a couple of hundred dollars by focusing on function. In our Beta Glass review , we were not surprised to learn that the Omega 2.0’s glass is handcrafted from 5mm thick German Schott Borosilicate tubing; like all of the firm’s pieces. Every single piece is put through rigorous quality control checks and the coveted 23 carat Beta label adorns them all. It is an upgrade on the original Omega despite being smaller. It is tough enough to hold on to what is the heaviest e-nail coil and nail combination in the industry. The single perc option enables you to enjoy perfectly filtered vapor which is cooled by the same radial recycler used in the original.
We were very impressed by the fact that we could draw as hard as we liked without ever having the flow interrupted. Water splash is always a concern but you don’t have to worry about such an unfortunate incident when using the Omega 2.0. Its slits are big enough to avoid clogging and because of the way the water travels in the rig, the majority of reclaim is removed from the perc. As a result, you don’t need to clean it nearly as often as the Toro; although it looks better when clean! As a consequence of the design, you can enjoy extremely heavy sessions without a loss of function. If you’re an experienced yet clumsy user, the Omega 2.0 offers a lot of benefits. Its heavy base ensures that you won’t smash your rig by knocking it over accidentally. It is one of the best rigs in its class with outstanding function and durability. It ensures you get the best possible flavor from your dabbing experience and benefit from cooler vapor. The water spinning chamber is an interesting design but it does mean the water and vapor have to travel a long way. As a consequence, you’ll have to be patient because you’ll have to take another breath when trying to really rip into it. Karl Termini is the brains behind the Termini brand and operates out of Ithaca in New York. His love affair with glass began in the late 1990s when he worked as a lampworker in New Jersey. It took him several years to become an expert and Karl opened a small shop in his house in the late 1990s. In 2004, various legal issues with the industry forced a frustrated Termini to move to Amsterdam where he quickly gained a reputation as an artist and glass maker. His focus on scientific glass making techniques paid dividends and he opened his second company with Adam Dunn and Hans Meijer, which they called SNOB. SNOB became one of the top firms in the pipe making industry and won several Cannabis Cup awards. In the Netherlands, Karl opened the Studio Termini Amsterdam where he taught students about the art of borosilicate glass. Although his skills continued to improve while overseas, the party lifestyle was becoming too much which is why he returned to the United States to open Termini Tubes. Today, the company is booming but Karl still creates every pipe personally. Each piece he creates is made to order and because there is no inventory stocked, you receive a unique dab rig, although you may have to wait longer than normal to receive it. The Incycler is one of Karl’s most recent rigs and is 7.25 inches high with a maximum width of 4.25 inches across. The rig utilizes a 10mm handspun female joint and like with each Termini model, the incycler rig features the sandblasted Termini logo. To be clear, it is one of the most expensive rigs on the market as prices start from $740 .
Karl’s eye for detail is apparent in this rig which is designed so that any splash from the 4-hole percolator is moved outwards and towards the hole to the downtake. The production work on the Termini Incycler is as clean as anything you’ll see in the industry but lovers of color won’t enjoy the lack of colored glass. However, you probably won’t care about that once you inhale because there is next to no drag. With most rigs, it takes a lot of effort to get the water to recycle a reasonable amount but with this Termini model, it is so easy to take huge rips without pausing. As well as featuring an extra chamber above the incycler, the bent neck ensures you don’t have to worry about the water splashing. It may be expensive and lack colorful flair, but the performance of the Termini Incycler is as good as anything you’ll find in the industry and it is one of the cleanest production glass pieces you’ll ever see. Like an increasing number of dab rig providers, Leisure Glass prefers to use social media to sell its wares rather than rely on a static website. The company was founded by Luke Wilson who has been a glassblower in Southern California for almost two decades. You can learn more about the company on its Instagram page which has almost 22,000 followers.
Alternatively, you can watch one of its videos on the firm’s LeisureMedia YouTube page which has over 130,000 views since it was created in February 2010.
