New and improved Tantus Bulletholes!

Antipova Antipova
I just got a question on my Echo review today---my biggest (well, only) complaint about the Echo I bought last spring was that, if the bullet wasn't inserted, the lower portion of the dildo was too easy to squeeze.

I must not have been the only one, because Tantus listened to us and made a huge improvement! I'm slowly working on follow-ups so I'll be able to add this to my review, but I thought I should add it to the forum too, because I'm sure lots of people will be glad to see how much sturdier the bulletholes are now.

I'm on my way to take pictures, which should be up within the hour---til then, feel free to celebrate!

Here we have it!



My camera isn't capable of showing the inside of the new bullethole---it's deeper (so you get the vibrations deeper) but it's also reinforced for extra bullet-holding capabilities. You can see a good picture in Lucidity's Flex review.

Anyway, I'm so darn happy! Both that Tantus listened to us, and that their new solution is marvelous!

Looks good, but I'm not going to replace all my old toys. I guess I'll just have to wait to see them!

Nice, wonder how long it will take for the stokes of the old version to be completely replaced by the new.

Thanks for sharing

Oh Tantus, you're so nice to your consumers/fans.
Thanks for posting this. I had no idea how nice the improvement to the base would be! It's much sturdier all around, now.

That's great news!
I have to admit I first read the title as "buttholes." Yeah, my mind is always in the gutter.

Thanks for letting us know, Antipova.

I, alas, also read the title originally as "buttholes." What do they say about great minds, Kindred? (Or is it dirty minds?)

I guess I've never had one of their bullethole dildos that wasn't rock hard, heh

Really? Hm, I'm envious. I was seriously saddened by the floppiness of the bottom of Echo when I didn't have the bullet in (which was always).

Nice, big improvement for sure. I like the bigger based as well!

I am of the "Butthole" crowd too, I thought they had a new anal toy.

That would be a little outside their typical ultra-classy naming scheme...

...

but that probably wouldn't stop me from buying one, whatever it was!

Oh, if you only knew...our production team uses working titles with ALL manner of crazy names. I get to be the one to tell them, "No! Guys! I can't market a toy named ___________." Our names may end up classy, but mostly they don't start that way.

I should also say that the main reason we redesigned was to get a thicker base for better use in a harness; customers have long asked for those kinds of design tweaks. It takes a while to reconfigure the molds, etc., so we figured that while we were redoing the base, we could redo the bullet vibe holes as well.

I love the feedback! You all are awesome.

Yeah, you can really see with my two Echoes that the base is going to hold much better in a harness!

Yeah, I was really excited to see this when I pulled my new Echo out of the box. I wasn't expecting it, but it was a pleasant surprise.

I recently purchased The Tantus Flex which has the bullet hole. So far it is very sturdy and seems to work great, however, it takes a bit of strength to insert and pull the bullet out. But that is to be expected with plastic rubbing against the inside material, which I believe should be silicone or maybe something else. In any case it's an awesome toy and I love it.

Are those round things inside all bullets? or just grippies? I feel like I'm looking up at a UFO :p

So great when companies will adjust products to make them even better. Yay for them!
