Size does matter. There’s no way around it. But with dab rigs, smaller is actually better. Although larger, more elaborate water pipes are preferred when smoking ground herb, that’s not the case for concentrates.
Large rigs dilute the flavor of concentrates. Small oil rigs, on the other hand, have tight chambers that condense vapor so that you can unlock the full, robust flavor of concentrates. The percolators tend to be simpler as well because they are designed to cool the vapor rather than offer the intense filtration standard with percolator bongs.
Terpenes give plants their distinct flavor and aroma, which is especially the case with terpene-rich concentrates. And naturally, the terpier the dab the better. The best rigs will bring out the nuances of your favorite strains with little to no drag, something small rigs do very well.
That said, small rigs offer the best vapor quality proving that sometimes smaller is better.
