I don't know what to look for when shopping for a flogger or whip. I like a lot of impact... Does the material really make a difference?

Yes, the material makes TON of difference. Read through the reviews. Try to find ones that state how the impact feels - stingy vs thuddy, how much pain it produces, etc.

I'll compare a few. Just out of curiosity, what material do you prefer in a flogger?

Agreed. Leather vs. Faux Fur is a major difference! One can possible bleed you on the first strike, while the other one will possibly only ever sting the living hell out of you.

MUST be Leather, of course, with a sturdy handle, that's slightly rounded for better grip.

Material is ESSENTIAL. Rubber feels different from cow leather. Cow leather feels different from moose leather. Moose leather feels different from knotted rope.

Honestly, my partner and I get our impact toys mostly off of Eden (better quality items, often handmade by folks who understand what someone is looking for in impact play, since impact toys are their single speciality). After a cursory read-through, this (link) seems like a pretty decent guide to buying a flogger.

Material can make all the difference with your experience. What do you mean by a lot of impact? Do you like a more thuddy feeling opposed to sting? If you're after a more thuddy sensation I recommend you look for a flogger with soft leather falls. Suede is a great material for a thuddy flogger.

A good way to shop for a flogger is really to get hands on with it. This way you can get a feel for how it feels on you. Ask around. See if some of your friends have some floggers they would be willing to let you try out. Once you have a good idea for what feeling you like and the materials of the flogger you can make a better decision when shopping online.

Happy shopping.

Material makes a lot of difference. I'd either get a few basic models and test them out or go to a store and try one in person before investing. For the pricier ones, read review
