What Is A Glass Drop-down?

A Glass Drop-down is an essential accessory to use with a dab rig or a bong! Drop-down Reclaim Catchers can be vertical or horizontal and come in different styles and shapes! Some have removable attachments, while others are one solid piece.

Why Should You Use A Dab Rig/Bong Drop-down?

It would help if you used a Drop-down with the Dab Rig and Bong for the following reasons:

  1. Drop-down Reclaim Catcher keeps your dab rig and bong cleaner longer by catching all the residue before it gets pulled into your rig/bong when inhaled. 
  2. Glass Drop-downs allow you to collect and recycle your residue easily. 
  3. Residue trapped in the Drop Down Adapter stays clean and out of water. 
  4. When inhaling, add distance between your face and the bong flower bowl and banger nail.

Types Of Drop-down Reclaim Catchers?

Drop-down Reclaim Catchers can be glass, quartz, silicone, or a mix of both! This Glass Drop-down comes in different angles, shapes, and designs. For example:

  • Some Drop-down Reclaim Catchers have a curved neck, while others have a straight neck. 
  • Other Drop-down Reclaim Catchers have removable glass bottoms, while others have removable silicone bottoms to collect your reclaim easily.
