This has finally actually caught my eye now that I see there are nice quartz flat bottom offerings that can be used with inserts.

Has anyone tried the flat bottom quartz with a gemstone insert? Or know the thickness of the sidewalls? Any ballers grab the Long Island?

Just wondering if it's pointless since the torch isn't a Big Shot? Or if there is too much diffusion in the perk?

You know I am a LONGTIME fan and had mine since the first release of 500 units.

I personally no not use inserts on anything, but don't let that dissuade you. RiO has been compatible with all of my bangers and they all line up relatively well above the torch. The only exception has been my deep dish 710 bangers, as they sit just too low and against the torch. Most all other flat bottom bangers in your house will work just fine. I also did not grab the Long Island, but it is tempting.

The torch is definitely no Big Shot, but plenty powerful for its purpose. Had mine since early 2019 and it is just as sharp as day one and the igniter has never failed me on the first click. Diffusion is minimal with the v1 inline perc. I have not yet tried the v2 showerhead, but I imagine it is slightly more diffusion. The small volume of the RiO really helps flavor chasers though.

I would love to hear your more experienced perspective if you decide to jump on one! IMO the price is too good to turn down for a travel rig. Mine goes everywhere, most recently fly fishing!

OMG are you serious!?? I had no idea other bangers would even fit! haha! So my 25mm 710coils (non deep dish) will work?!

this is even easier than I thought! Where is the best place to snag one of these bad boys? Cream City Vapes?

After discovering gemstone insert cold starts recently I can't see anything being a better option! Stoked!

To confirm, my 25mm 710 non-deep dish with opaque bottom and 14mm joint fits well in my RiO.

It sits a hair lower than the stock setup, flame on with no problem.

You may also want to check with Randy to see if he may have extra not listed on the site, he was carrying them at PIU last time I checked.


@biohacker what is your current tech? What are you using head to toe? Can you post link to the gemstone inserts you are using?

Presently using a 25mm 710coils clear quartz 14/90 on a Toro clone rig (slitted perk) with 19mm Baio.Tang ruby/ quartz pi cap and blazer torch, cold start exclusively. There isn't a link for the ruby but you can order from him on IG for $40+couple bucks shipping and it arrived in Canada in 10 days door to door. The ruby itself is heavier/thicker than most on the market going for even double the cost.

With that said, I also have a 24mm ruby that I want to stick in a 30mm banger, but not sure if the Rio would be able to support it, being larger, and perhaps the torch might be too anemic for it? Not like I care since the 25mm is much more practical for portability anyways and more than sufficient/ample surface area.

Do you have any connections with the CEO? Might be a really cool idea to drop...... a Blazer Big Shot "version" of the Rio! The Big Boy Rio with the Big Boy 30mm Bucket! haha

Here is my homemade Rio!

I tried using my ruby insert and flat bottom quartz banger from my 710coils rig, but after 25 seconds nothing was melting, so I don't use it with the Rio. The bottom was too thick and also took way too much butane to heat up even without the insert.

I have had my RiO's (originally had an OG and then semi recently got their updated one) for around half a year now and its become my most used concentrate device, especially if I am away from home. I posted up my full rio review here

Are you guys mostly using your RiO at home or on the go?


OG on the Right, Updated RiO on the Left


RiO thriving on the go.

I've had my Rio for ~6 months and the torch now usually requires multiple, successive clicks to ignite.

Is there a fix or just a livable inconvenience?

Also had no idea that Rio means Rig-in-One, assumed it meant river.

I love using mine at home, but it is mostly kept clean and used as a portable. I fucking HATE atomizers and RiO is a no-compromise portable that gives nothing up from a traditional rig. It is for road trips, flying, festivals, business, and fun.

I got mine during the first sale of 500 units, and have been really wanting a second MakeOver unit. Do you still use your v1 inline at all now that you have the MakeOver unit? I was going to get it this last holiday, but broke some glass and had to divert funds...
