The ultimate dab rig
If you know Higher Standards you know they do nothing by halves. Higher Standards was created to provide aficionados with the tools they need for the most elevated smoking experience. On all levels Higher Standards knows how to create lust-worthy products, from their simple yet cool packaging all the way through to premium function and design. Each and every one of their products are worthy of display in your home. The Beaker was the first Higher Standards product I ever encountered, and I have been selling them steadily since. My Higher Standards range is ever growing, and I will happily stock anything they make.
TIP: Higher Standards products are all made in the USA.
The Heavy-Duty Rig is the second product that I sourced from the fine folks at Higher Standards. I instantly knew I wanted to showcase the brand in store, and I have displayed their wares proudly ever since. My range has grown since those first days and I still love all that Higher Standards does. The Rig is a fairly classic design, not too tall and not too short (very Goldilocks!) with a wide flared mouthpiece and has been designed with maximum water filtration and flavour in mind. For those that are new to the game, dab rigs are engineered specifically for the water filtration of concentrates/wax (AKA Dabbing). Bowls are not used with dab rigs and a banger is required (more on that soon). Higher Standards has crafted this unit for those who really like their hits on the larger side along with a nice burst of flavour.
TIP: Hard to accurately measure but The Rig measures in at just under 7 inches (side arm portion) or for all you Australians 18cms tall!
As with all their glass pieces it has been handcrafted from durable medical-grade borosilicate glass and is highly thermal resistant enabling it to withstand all variations in temperature. This glass is extra-extra thick (7mm), hence the heavy-duty nature of this Rig. This is a water pipe that has been designed to last the distance and it will take a lot for you to crack it (please don’t test this claim and stay safe!). The base is wide for added stability, helping to keep you safe whilst using high temperatures.
TIP: The Rig has a non-porous surface effectively helping to prevent build up gunk. Also making this a very easy unit to clean.
A 100% Quartz Crystal Banger is provided in this kit. This banger is crazy-thick to withstand extreme temperatures and not crack and my advice is to never trust a skinny banger! Designed to be deep to avoid any splashing/bubbling/overflow that may occur. The banger is capable of pulling intense flavour out of concentrates at a lower temperature effectively delivering smooth and flavoursome rips.
TIP: A secure ground glass connection provides an airtight seal when all pieces are in place allowing for as deep a hit as you can handle
I find the down stem on this rig to be quite interesting and it should probably be labelled a side stem for the purposes of accuracy. Beneath the banger heading in a downwards direction is where the stem begins it then seamlessly (a perfect airtight ground glass connection) enters into the internal water reservoir. The down stem is now technically a side stem as it sits horizontally within the chamber. Extra-thin slits (4) on the down stem generate finer bubbles, maximizing contact between smoke and moisture for a smoother draw. An airtight seal promotes deep chugging, ensuring thorough water filtration. Smoke sifts into the water chamber where it is filtered, purified and amplified to perfection.
Lastly but definitely not least I present to you the premium Collectors Case and please don’t imagine just any old box. Higher Standards likes to provide reusable foam lined cases for all their glass enabling you to keep your glass safe or to travel in style. All parts are allocated their own encased area and a sturdy handle is provided. This is a Dab Rig crafted for connoisseurs by connoisseurs with all bases covered providing a seamless, clean and pure smoking experience.
