Talk about a smoker’s paradise and Thick Ass Glass will make it worth your while. I just came across the website and it has some amazing products.
Over time, Thick Ass Glass has become a quality supplier of smoking products basing its accessories and appliances around borosilicate glass. This glass contains silica along with boron trioxide that gives it very low coefficient of thermal expansion.
This makes the final products resistant to thermal shocks like instant heating or cooling. This type of glass is used commonly for construction of lab equipment, reagent bottles and yes smoking devices!
2017 UPDATE: My new favorite place to get dope glass pieces is Dank Stop.
Thick Ass Glass offers a monstrous collection of products.
Name it and you will find it. Some of the offerings on TAG include adapters, ash catchers, glass rods, bubblers, oil rigs and down stems among many others.
All products are certified high quality and the responses can be seen in the numerous testimonials they have bagged over time.
Let’s discuss more details about TAG after looking through some of their featured products.
#1 Tag – 7″ Klein incycler – made with us-33 Boro & Schott Boro
This bad boy INCYCLER weights just 0.575lbs (260g) and is seven inches in height. It comes with a joint size of 14 millimeters and mouth piece that’s 13 millimeters wide.

#2 Showerhead ash catcher with water recycler 18mm
If you are into water pipes then having ash catchers is a must. TAG has a wide range of ash catchers including this awesome showerhead version that is 5.5 inches in height and 5 millimeters thick. It comes with a showerhead with 14 different slits of diffusion. How about that?
#3 Tag – 9.5″ bent neck double honeycomb with spinning splashguard – 14mm female
The awesome glass bubbler has dual honeycomb percolators, a 90 degree fixed downstem, and a bent neck mouthpiece. The dual honeycomb perc make for excellent diffusion and filtration, while the bent neck mouthpiece design keeps water from splashing up into your mouth.
Made out of heavy scientific glass, it is available with black or clear honeycomb discs.
#4 Tag – 10″ Klein – us-33 Boro & Schott Boro
This awesome device is 10 inches in height, and is perfect for an immersive experience. You also get a glass side for the female version and glass dome and nail for the male one.
The incycler packs unique design elements that enable functionality. The recycler dab rig acts as an incycler as the main chamber also holds the recycling chamber.
The main chamber has a shower head percolator that calls for amazing filtration and diffusion. Vapor travels from the 14 mm male joint to the main chamber where it passes through the shower head percolator. From there, smoke and water travel through the separation tubes to the elongated cylinder-shaped recycling chamber, which has a small hole to add extra diffusion.
The water and the vapor move in a loop, circling between the two chambers and passing through the shower head perc multiple times before exiting through the mouthpiece. The bent neck mouthpiece acts as a splash guard to stop any water from leaving the vapor rig.
However, you must note that glass nails will break soon. You should go for quart or titanium nails if you want them to last longer.

Once you’ve got your Thick Ass Glass order safe at home with you, you’re going to want to care for the pieces as best as you can to ensure their longevity.
To do this, we introduce our Quick and Dirty Tips for Glass Care. It’s a primer of best practices that have been taken from online head shops and tried and tested right here.
Cleaning The Nail
The easiest part of the rig to clean is the nail but it can be difficult to remove, and glass nails break easily. Rigs tend to expand into the nail eventually creating a tight seal, but you can just heat the nail at the base and twist the nail loose using small tongs. Heat lightly to liquefy any offending resin and wipe it clean with a cotton swab. Place titanium nails until glowing red which will carbonize any residue and allow it to flake off.
Cleaning The Rig
Acetone and Isopropyl Alcohol are your best friends when it comes to cleaning a rig. Acetone is nail polish remover and works almost instantaneously, but it has a pungent smell and should not go down the drain. Isopropyl alcohol can be as pure as 91% from the drug store. Simply pour your chosen solvent into your rig, shake and wait. Reach around corners with a bent cotton swab. Isopropyl should be good enough to do the job, but acetone is necessary if you’ve been neglectful. Let the solvent evaporate and rinse with water until you don’t notice aromatic traces of the solvent.
Keep It Clean
Change the water every time you use your rig and don’t let it go for so long that it builds up grime. When in doubt, call the online head shop from whence it came.
