The Twister Rig is a Vortex Percolating Recycling Rig and is our favourite single piece rig. The level of vapour conditioning is close to that provided by the Matrix Rig Base and Triple Percolating Disk Hydratube combination which provides the highest level of vapour conditioning we've found. The outside glass is stated to be around 3.5mm-4mm thick and the rig stands at around 23cm or 9" tall with an angled mouthpiece. 


The vapour travels down through the main stem, into the bottom flask, up through the wide percolating disk and is then forced with the water up through the vortex generator into the horizontal pipe. While this is happening the water is drawn up through the spiral tube to the bowl where it is met by the water containing the now heavily conditioned vapour. A combination of gravity and airflow keeps this water level stable, recycling the water back down into the main flask to have more vapour pulled through it and so on. At the end of the draw the water drains from the bowl in a whirlpool motion back down the spiral tube. We've labelled the rig parts on the main image to help make this description clearer. The cylinder containing the spiral tube can be used as a handle during use, allowing it to be easily picked up and held at an appropriate height for you. Combined with its smaller size this makes it a very convenient rig to use. 

Capacity/Fill Level

These have a wide base with a huge 130ml water capacity and can filled with even more, depending on airflow rate and personal preference. We fill them from the banger end (14mm male joint) until the percolating disk is just submerged as we've found this provides the best balance of airflow and conditioning when used with a bottomless banger and regular carb cap. We've drawn these lines in blue onto an image for reference. If using a spinning or high flow carb cap fill to up to 1cm below the percolator disk. This will allow for large amounts of air to be pulled through without it feeding up the mouthpiece. 


This rig comes with a 14mm male joint and we will provide them with a 14mm male to 14mm female adapter so they can be used with Bottomless Bangers such as those by 510mod and Crossing. This converter also gives the rig an extra level of versatility as the rig can be used with pre-existing female joint parts should you have them. We considered having these made with a 14mm female joint but prefer the extra height provided by the adapter when used with a bottomless banger and 510 extension cable. We may do this in future if there is a specific demand for an integrated 14mm female connection however this will increase unit price. Please note this rig requires a glass joint such as a bottomless banger or banger to work, it cannot used without one of these parts.

The Twister Rig - Percolating Vortex Recycling Rig

What a Rig

This rig is a beast and I love it. Matt was very helpful (as always it seems!) with the couple of questions I had, and the Twister has been used pretty much every day since I got it. Would definitely recommend - cleaning is easy and I just love sitting back in a chair holding it by the 'handle' while ripping. Thanks.

Really pleased you're enjoying it. The 510 extension/twister rig combo does make for the easiest vaping, that's my favourite setup!

The best single piece rig I’ve used

This rig is really smooth, looks great in use, is much easier to clean than it looks, and most importantly to me the airflow is really open, it doesn't feel like you're chugging a lot of water. I always go for the lightest fastest breathing airflow and usually that means not much water but not here. I like trying bongs and rigs, I tried every hydratube and base from DHgate to find the best airflow/smoothness combination and this is at least as good if not better than my favourite combos, usually either the showerhead base and showerhead “recycler” (doesn't really recycle, this one does) or tree perc base and top.
The first time I cleaned the vortex perc recycler I broke the adapter I needed but that's always a risk getting used to new bongs. Apart from that it's been plain sailing, and mine even has a tiny pinhole in the glass around the spiral tube, leaving room for a potential upgrade to a freezable glycerine coil cooled rig if I syringed in some coloured glycerine and seal the hole.
