A: There are 3 main size joints: 10mm, 14mm and 18mm. Knowing this is very important when purchasing a new bowl piece or banger for your piece, as having the incorrect size will not work. An easy way to find your joint size is to take a dime, which is 18mm in diameter, and put it in the female joint of your bong, if the dime can fit inside, it is an 18mm joint. If the dime only partly fits, it is a 14mm. If the dime comes nowhere close then you have a 10mm, those this is less common and typically only found on select mini-bongs
Q: What is a Banger? Why would you use that over a bowl?
A: A banger is also known as a nail, or a carefully designed piece of glass that you use for melting oils or concentrate. They must be heated up by a torch and it is highly recommended that a Carb Cap to be used as well for the most effective dab.

Q: What is a dab tool and why do I need it? Are there different kinds?
A: A dab tool or a dabber for short, is small handheld tool that is very important for dabbing. They are used to extract wax or oil and placed on a heated nail. For this reason dabbers are heat resistant, and usually made of metal or glass. There is not usually a benefit to having one dabber over another, but having a dabber from narwhal assist you on dabbing is always a pleasure!
Q: Why do I need an Ash Catcher? What does it do?
A: An ash catcher is an attachment for your bong, and works exactly as the name suggests. Ash catchers will catch all the ash and debris from getting into your bong, thus making your bong cleaner. Ash catchers themselves are very easy to clean out as you can run them under warm water. This will also reduce the amount of time spent and effort put into cleaning your bong, which will make your herbs taste better as well. A secondary benefit of many ash catchers is that some contain percs themselves. This offers an extra level of diffusion to make your hits smoother. When purchasing an ash catcher, it is very important to know exactly what your bong requires. There are 3 main specifications: Size, Gender, and Angle. Ash catchers can have all sorts of size options, typically 14mm to 14mm, or 18mm to 18mm, but can have several variations. Please check what size your bong requires. Secondly, gender plays a big roll as well. Ash catchers can be male or female, and will not fit if you pick the incorrect gender. Typically most bongs have female joints and require a male jointed ash catcher. Lastly, angle can play a big roll as well, depending on how your bong is shaped. If your bong has a bowl that sits straight up, you will want a 90 degree ash catcher. If your bowl rests at an angle you will likely want a 45 degree ash catcher to put your bowl upright. One more factor to consider is the weight distribution of your piece. for 6" pieces or smaller, it is generally not recommended to use an ash catcher, as the weight of the ash catcher can make your bong tip over easily.
