Piranha as a brand is all about providing you with a high-quality experience without the high price. Known primarily for their grinders, water pipes, hand pipes, storage and all manner of products for the consumption of concentrates (dabbing). They have a constantly evolving line up and an ultimate goal of elevating your ritual.
Almost all bangers that I come across now are made of Quartz, a form of heat-safe glass. From that point forward the differences amongst bangers are wide and varied and can be deeper, wider, thicker, bevelled, slanted, flat top and thermochromic to name just a few. Which to choose? A good question that you will probably only be able to answer once you figure out the style of dabbing you are most at ease with. If you are just starting out, I would stick with a basic Quartz banger then upgrade as required.
A fairly standard banger made entirely from 4mm thick quartz, making it quite thick. This is a deep bucket style of banger with a slanted top and a flat base. A deeper style will allow you to use more product within, but I still only recommend using a grain of rice as your dosage guide. The added depth also helps to keep the concentrate in the bucket where it belongs, lowering the amount that enters into the airpath and/or joint connection.
This banger sits at a 90° angle and is suitable if you have a “banger hanger” style dab rig. In this style of water pipe the down stem has a bend and sits at a 90° angle with a connection port that points straight upwards. I would recommend a 45° banger if your down stem just out diagonally from the pipe. The right choice of angle will enable you to light the banger safely.
Lastly, the sloped top. In some bangers you will see an angled (bevelled) top and others with a flat one. A slanted top banger provides good heat retention and is the option of choice for smaller sized dabs. The smaller size is easier to clean too. A carb cap can (and should) be used with sloped bangers but just be aware that you may not completely cover (occlude) the banger and airflow may be affected.
