Comparison Between Titanium Nails And Quartz Bangers

Ultimately, both nails, Titanium and Quartz, are great, long-lasting options for your dabbing needs. However, both have their pros and cons and all in all, it comes down to personal preference. Titanium nails, although they must be seasoned, are great for big, hot dabs, and you don't have to stress about breaking your nail. Quartz is ready to use, heats super fast, and packs a punch when it comes to the taste, just be careful, Quartz can break!
