    I just absolutely LOVE mine!

    Going to a festival this weekend and RIO is infinitely easier to manage and travel with!
    I used to HATE traveling without an e-nail, but RIO makes life easy.

    Checked this out from another thread as i forgot which unit this was, the flat ugliest vape on the market....

    Hearty LOL@ the "Accident waiver and release of liability" statement on their website

    But Im stoked some folks seem to have found their unicorn

    I’m glad your stoked for me, thanks!
    Full disclosure: I kinda thought the same thing at first but absolutely love it. Don’t knock again till you try it. Now I love the steampunk look more and more.

    They should have a discount code at the end of that disclaimer for the poor people like me that wasted their time reading it.:disgust:
    It might not be the best looking unit around, more function over form (like my Plenty), it ain't no Pax, form over function.:myday:

    Please don't misunderstand, I can see the obvious functionality for sure, however, its hideous in just about every possible way and to preface this, Im fully sci glass through and through, while i can appreciate the skills heady glass takes, its not for me, give me clean, straight precision any day over captured opals or spikes or other such nonsense....having said that, this is neither heady, nor sci and looks like the multitudes of knock off china/india glass i see in all the new head shops popping up in legal states. Its like comparing the Peak with all the other Peak like devices that are not even half as sleek/looks like its engineered as the Peak is, again, saying nothing of function.

    ugly, very plain/made in china looking glass
    an ugly, super clunky torch type device
    and an insanely ugly silicone brick to hold it all
    the entire device looks like it was whipped together in a high school technology class

    Quartz bangers with a torch has been proven time and again to be an extremely effective if super clunky (not trying to get into a torch vs enail argument) method of dabbing, Im in no way doubting this device can get people medicated to where they need to be and the price is about where it needs to be for the looks.

    gotta say, i don't want just any rio. I want a purple/greem base with a purple waterpipe and the newest banger. I would love a sale price on that if possible.

    I spoke with them a few times before the big production run, seem like pretty cool folks.

    Try reaching out and let us know if they put the package together for you.

    Ordered! Not the color combo i was looking at but the sale was attractive. Went with Teal. Looked shimmery and 3D in the pics. It ain't about the color, it's about having one. Looking forward to it.

    @VGOODIEZ is a hero of mine. So glad he got into the biz, really knows his vapes, but I want to proclaim from experience, this is a true blue gentleman. He has gone way, way above and beyond for me.
    I've got a lot of love for vgoodiez and can't give a higher recommendation!

    I'll tell you this, if we hadn't already bought too many things, I'd jump on this.

    For $110 if I hadn't already broke the bank this past weekend I'd grab a Rio just for fun

    I’ve been going back and forth on either the Rio or the Carta for a while. For $110, I went with the Rio. That’s a crazy good price. All they had left were the black and white ones, but I’m not complaining at that price point.

    Looks like PIU still has some color bases.

    That is a beauty of a banger @52, love the additional height it provides over the torch. My v1 banger provides very little clearance.

    Sale is over at DabNation. @PuffItUp is only 20% off, not 50% off. Bummer. Definitely would have grabbed one of these at half off.
