Pulsing and ProbingI summarize the Pulse Probe by saying it is a great buy for any average user of sex toys. The vibrations are powerful and it feels great being inserted. The only flaw is that the vibrations are powerful on the shaft and not the head which is where I expected them to be the strongest. In fact, you can barely feel them on the head.
Good shape for pleasure and powerful vibrations.
Head has no vibration.
Despite the Probe's odd shape, it is very pleasurable. For me, it is best for clitoral stimulation, but it also feels really good for vaginal insertion. It's a very comfortable size for me and I really like the head. It looks strange, but taking the head in and out feels incredible. The only flaw is that the vibrations really do not have any intensity at the head. So the best way I found to use it, is having the vibe positioned straight up and down with the head going in and out while the shaft rubs the clit.
The Pulse Probe is made of silicone and it feels really good. It doesn't have a smell (a definite plus), and I have not tasted it. It is textured pretty smoothly with many microscopic ripples/wrinkles on it and the head is smooth. I don't feel that the texture had any part in the quality of this product. I would recommend this for beginners who want to try something gentle and smooth.
I have enjoyed the design multiple times so far. The oddly shaped head feels great going in and out during vaginal play. It looks weird but at the same time the colors are pretty and the design doesn't effect performance. It's long enough for the shaft to massage the clit and for the head alone to be inserted. I also like that the head is bendable and the shaft is stiff. The size seems perfect for average toy users. The length and width are perfect for moderate play. It isn't easy to hide and I wouldn't suggest it for discreetness.
The vibration dial is located on the base. My only complaint is that the actual dial is really thin and is connected to the battery cap. It is easy to change settings and unscrew the cap. The vibrations are powerful enough if the Probe is positioned correctly. The head has hardly any vibrations in it. This toy isn't silent but with a little music or a television on, the sound is muffled completely. I haven't tried it in water, but the instructions say that it is okay for shower. It is not recommended for pools or bath tubs.
I use a baby wipe on the toy before and after each use. Fabric doesn't cling to the material as far as I have noticed. The packaging said that the Pulse Probe is dishwasher safe, but I don't have one. The product packaging and instructions contains all details about which lubes are safe with silicone. I do remember reading that it is safe with all lubes but I would do some research or read the instructions first.

This vibe is great! I found it to be even more thrilling when it is inside at the same time as my husband.
