If you’re on the hunt for a quartz banger, you’ll notice that they come in varying degrees. This may seem confusing, but there’s an easy explanation why you’d need a 45-degree banger instead of a 90 degree one. But first, let’s discuss what differentiates the two.
The angle of a nail’s neck dictates how many degrees it is. You might’ve guessed this as a 90-degree banger has a sharp, 90-degree neck.
Speaking of 90-degree bangers, they’re the most standard. They come in varying sizes, and are usually 2-4 mm thick.
45 degrees bangers are not as standard. They’re used to convert water pipes with joints to oil rigs, if their joint isn’t 90 degrees. Like their counterparts, the bangers are 2-4 mm thick.
Look at the angle on your rig’s joint. If it’s 45 degrees or at a sideway slant, you’d need a 45-degree banger. If the rig’s joint is vertical, it’s said to be 0 degrees and would need a 90-degree banger.
At the end of the day, the angle of your joint and banger need to add up to 90 degrees. This prevents your nail from falling down.
The nails perform the same, but they come in varying degrees to make you dab sessions easier. Thankfully, both degrees are easily accessible at Honeybee Herb.
