Great while it lasts

It was fun to use even after it broke, and wrapping it in tape. It's not a horrible product, just not a great one. It can be used after it breaks, only if the leather tip does not come completely off. You will notice the leather start to crack after a few short uses most likely.

Use

This crop is made for light BDSM play. It can be used for spanking various parts of the body, and is also quite useful just for aesthetics/role play. Mostly we use it for the latter and i'll explain why in the performance section of this review.

Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features

The crop is slightly over 2 feet long and looks quite stunning. It has a comfortable rubber black handle which is ribbed with circles for a secure grip. I'm not sure what the neck of the toy is made of, but it's coated in a lovely bright red thread which gives the crop a vibrant clashing red and black look. It is the type of thing I would expect to find in a fetish dungeon. The top of the crop is made of leather, and feels rigid and sturdy. However, I soon discovered it was anything but.
    • Lightweight
    • Mixed material
    • Multiple ways to use

Performance

At first I was extremely pleased with my choice. I enjoyed the lightweight, yet sturdy and firm feel the crop had. Unfortunately after 4 or 5 spanks the leather tip of the crop started to crack and nearly fell apart. To even make this instrument usable in the future, I had to wrap it in duct tape all around the leather crop tip to hold it together. Even now I don't use the product very hard for fear that it will fall apart. It was nice for the 2 minutes it lasted, but disappointingly flimsy and fragile on the top. I will say it is useful for light play, perhaps medium if wrapped in duct tape. It would make a decent cane as the middle of the crop is fairly sturdy and painful, as well as leaves sexy marks. I do however think due to the aesthetically pleasing red and black look this crop has, it would be excellent for a costume, photo shoot, video, or role play. Unfortunately that's all it's really good for aside from light, (very light) play.
    • Good for teasing
    • Might leave marks

Care and Maintenance

This product will most likely not need to be cared for or maintained. If you really do need to clean it, you could use the old fashioned soap and water method. You may need duct tape to repair the crop top after the leather tip breaks, which it probably will for most serious, intermediate, or beginning users to BDSM.
    • Difficult to store
    • Easy to clean

Packaging

It only came with a plastic bag around it, it had no instructions.
    • Minimal

Personal comments

I'd advise getting a stronger crop or different flogging toy, it was disappointing how quickly it broke. Unless you plan on using it for looks only or extremely light play, don't waste your money on this particular product.
Follow-up commentary
Despite the fact that the crop's tip is broken, we have been using it more and more than we originally thought we would, especially due to the crop tip breaking during the first time we used it. If you use it as a cane it works quite well.

    WOW! I cannot believe this broke so soon. What a disappointment. For BDSM products, I would completely expect durable materials. That's just yuck that this was made so cheaply. Thank you for the very informative review!

    Yeah it sucks it fell apart so quickly. By actually looking at it once you receive it you wouldn't think it would fall apart. While I held it in my hands it felt very sturdy but once I put it to use it was nothing like what I had expected. Comes to show appearances can lie even when the item is in your hands.
