Rio Dab Rig Updates for 2020: Rio Make-Over

Stache Products have put out an update to their RIO portable dab rig!

The RIO is a dab rig with a built-in torch. It swept all of the other portable dab rigs from the moment it hit my desk.

The Rio is the only portable dab rig on the market that can deliver the full-potential and agility of a torch and quartz banger – because it actually uses a torch and quartz banger!

Rio Makeover Updates for 2020

  • New banger! The new Rio banger is perfectly aligned over the torch and the bends and spacings are more precise and consistent. Minimal welds in the neck increase strength and durability while the rim near the joint acts as both a reclaim catcher and a grip while handling the hot quartz banger
  • Torch Upgrade! The new torch is more elegant and refined compared to previous torches. It clicks, lights, and burns consistently. The finicky adjustment knob is gone, as are the abilities to adjust the flame…
  • Percolator Changes! The previous inline perc was a little bit chuggy. Not my ideal percolation for smoking dabs. The new Rio uses a shower perc with a tighter flow and smaller bubbles.
  • Additional cosmetic changes include a silicone plug that covers the base of the torch and makes the base of the Rio smooth and soft all the way around.
  • Updated packaging
  • Price increase to $250

Buy the Rio directly from Stache Products or use my Puffitup affiliate link if you’d like to support my efforts. The price is the same at both stores.

  1. considering a purchase of the Rio I follow your advice on a couple of purchase I have made. I am considering a puffco but not sure yet. Can I ask your opinion of the to. Also I notice you do not have a Gpen connect. Can you say why you dod not like the product. Thank you ahead

    • Love my Rio. Gpen Connect is neat design, but tastes bad. Heated atomizer surface is too small and the reclaim just constantly burns off WITH YOUR VAPOR.
      It takes good dabs and makes them taste like butt.

  2. Can’t dab where I live. But have watched this and am very grateful for the update. Your fans will find you. Have missed MC and VC intensely: my peeps 🙂 – felt i had been shut out of the community but kinda knew that YT was at the bottom of it. YT has become a big gateway drug.

  3. I have the rio after the updates, but still version 1. Man my perc is broken off and shit. The new rio looks amazing. Do you know if we are able to just purchase the new top upgraded glass and stick it on our original? And then perhaps I will add the torch later. But not sure if that will work because that torched seemed a bit beefier lol. Let me know what you think on this!

    Also how is the supply out where you live for dabs and weed? Has it been getting a little scarce or things all good over there?
