    Looking for the what people would consider the best oil rig. Just like people would say the DG fritt vs Mobius SM for diffusion

    I have VERY limited experience dabbing.
    I mean like about 2 weeks total now lol.
    But I do have pieces that run the gamut, from highly diffused to a mini beaker w/light diffusion to a mini-recycler and the recycler is by far the most fun to dab from. :drool:

    I'm now looking for another recycler to add to my collection.
    Damn G.A.S.! :mental:

    So I vote for recycler but hopefully some dabbing vets chime in.

    edit: misread title and post a bit... thought you meant type, missed that you were looking for particular brand recommendations. My bad. Well, I heard the Hamm's Sputnik recycler is dabbing heaven. :)

    I wouldn't consider myself a dab vet but I have taken my fair share of them. If you are looking for maximum diffusion, the 2 you mentioned are some of the best. I think you will find though that most dabbers will prefer less diffusion as the vapor tends to be less harsh than flowers so all the extra diffusion just strips flavor. The last time I cleaned my recycler,I forgot to fill it before I took a dab and even that wasn't harsh.

    I have to agree that recyclers are my personal favorite. The vapor stays in contact with the water longer so it has more time to cool but they also tend to have larger bubbles so there is less surface area (the more surface area of vapor against water causes loss of flavor).

    OTOH, I am a firm believer of "to each their own" so if you want a piece with maximum diffusion either of those are great. DG is going to have slightly more diffusion but also more drag.

    I think volume is more important than perc choice. It's common to see everything from matrix to fixed 3 hole diffy oil rigs. The only thing you don't really see too much of is someone taking dabs out of a Kingstem sized tube.

    Here are some random (off the top of my head) popular rigs I've seen a lot of people using:
    Pyrology Sucka Punch, Anything Toro, Dabuccino Cups, 45/50T Stereo Matrix, Fixed Stem Mini-Tubes, ^Recyclers.

    Then what would be considered the best recycler or rig that provides smooth excellent flavor consistently? Other than Mothership Torus just because i don't have $1400 haha

    Tell the world your maximum price and the suggestions that you get will be more helpful.

    Boy I should learn to read,I thought you were asking if a DG or stereo matrix was the best for dabbing. The most popular high end oil rig brand right now is probably toro, but don't ask me which one,I can't keep all his percs straight. Also they have a high resale value so even if you don't like it you can get most of your money back.

    Well i'd say the "best" piece is always subjective so +1 for hitman
