Hey there vape fam! Travis from OverDoseVapes here to bring you a review of an interesting new RDA from StageVape, the Venus. As far as I can tell, the StageVape Venus RDA is the first and only product released under the StageVape brand.

StageVape Venus RDA Review
After a week of use the Venus has left quite an impression on me. It is aesthetically pleasing, from the resin drip tip to the etched top cap. It has a pleasing compact design. Produces outstanding flavor and generous clouds. It works well in both squonk and normal configurations and is an absolute dream to build on with its big open post-less deck. It’s made of decent materials and looks quite good on everything from mechanical mods to squonk boxes. The 810 drip tip can be changed out to match it with any device you wish to pair it with. The closed off deck and angled airflow bring out sweet notes and highlights clean fruit flavors very well.
Its not all sunshine and rainbows however with a few glaring negatives that must be discussed. The first thing I noticed when using the Venus was that it bears a striking resemblance in design to the Nudge RDA and comes with the squonk pin installed out of the box which I discovered when I had e-liquid leaking out of it into the inside of my mod. While the deck is very easy to work with the reality is that very large coils don’t work well in the Venus causing quite a bit of spit back during use. This is remedied with a smaller inner diameter coil however. While I enjoy the etching on the top cap some may find it a bit garish, this will come down to personal preference.

StageVape Venus RDA Final Thoughts
All in all, the Venus has become a regular in my vape rotation and in my opinion the pros far outweigh the cons with this device. The flavor is absolutely top notch while at the same time providing enough airflow to produce massive clouds. I love the way the Venus looks on top of all my mods and it works well on my squonk mods as well. Finding the right build is definitely the key to getting the most from this device, I have found that a spaced Clapton build with an inner diameter of 2.5mm worked extremely well.
I definitely recommend the Venus, if you like the design I don’t think you will be disappointed. So in conclusion I give the StageVape Venus RDA a 4 / 5. Make sure you stay tuned to the OverDoseVapes YouTube channel for a video review of the Venus.
StageVape Venus RDA Final Score: 4 /5
After more than a decade of smoking cigarettes I found the power to quit through vaping! I have been vaping since 2011 and have been running the YouTube channel OverDoseVapes since 2014. I want to help the consumer make informed decisions when purchasing the latest devices or liquids and help new vapers find the right products to keep them smoke free!
