JP is a ‘glass artist’ and you can see that in the Jet’s nice design. If you want any Toto dab rig, you better act fast or else you’ll miss out because there is a fairly limited edition of each rig available. JP is still in charge of the company and operates out of upstate New York at present. The fact that collectors jealously hold on to outdated Toro rigs tells you everything you need to know about the quality of the products the organization creates. The Jet Perc Amber uses a fixed stem over the percolator rather than relying on a ball as a splash guard.
As a result, the percolator is located lower down on the mouthpiece. In rigs that feature an inferior design, water will annoyingly splash up to the mouthpiece when you’re attempting to dab. However, the Jet Perc Amber prevents this from happening. In the unlikely event that you splash a bit of water past the stem, the bent neck of the mouthpiece keeps you away from splashing water and hot nails. We love that the percolator keeps the vapor at the right temperature and there is ample flavor left in the chamber. The Jet Ball is a little different insofar as it offers a ball-shaped colored splash guard. On the downside, the percolator holes are a bit small so if you’re enjoying a particularly heavy session, there’s a danger of the holes clogging up. Therefore, regular cleaning and maintenance are essential for best results.
If you’re new to dab rigs, Toro is an ideal company to make your first purchase with. It is one of the most reputable firms in the industry with some of the most beautifully designed rigs you’ll ever see. The price starts from $570 and you’ll probably pay up to $100 more. 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.
