Not Very Impressed...

The Impressions crop by Sportsheets is a product that can only be recommended to beginners in the BDSM field. A poor construction of cheap, flimsy materials makes it unsuitable for moderate to advanced users. I can see it having a place as a tool to intimidate for role playing, but as an actual crop it falls short, unable to inflict even a slight sting.

Pros:
Good for a role play prop, gentle enough for very light BDSM play
Cons:
Flimsy, not painful enough for any but the most basic of beginners

extremely useful review
The Impressions crop is made of faux leather with a thin plastic shaft and metal studs holding it together that may or may not be nickel free. The faux leather section that is used impact play is lined with a piece of a red canvas-like cloth. This material is coarse and reminds me a bit of the bag that my tent gets stored in. The faux leather handle on the other end is attached to the plastic shaft with a metal stud through it. This can lead to some structural issues.

After a few tentative taps on myself, I patiently waited until my boyfriend got home to try it out. Once submissively bound, he proceeded to start with light taps that lead to medium strength falls. After I replied that I still didn't feel any pain off of it, he swung it harder.

Then came the news that left me feeling dismayed, "I think I broke it", he said. How was it broken without me feeling more than a bit of pressure? He swung it a few more times, "Yeah, it's definitely broken. It snapped at the rivet that goes through the handle. I wasn't even swinging it that hard." I was disappointed. I had hoped the Impressions crop would have left a nice heart shaped bruise and yet it didn't even cause a soft sting.

This somewhat impractical and broken toy has worked it's way to the bottom of the toy box. I have used it since by holding the handle above the rivet and tapping lightly on my boyfriends cock and balls. This causes him a mild amount of pain and pleasure but overall, we are dissatisfied with this toy. I will be looking into other crops on Eden and will be prepared to spend more on a good one. Eden has a large variety of them and investing a bit more in a quality one seems worth it. My curiosity with impression crops is yet unsatisfied and I would like to have a good shaped mark left on me.

The impressions crop is easy to care for. If it gets dirty, wipe it down with a damp cloth. It can be hung by its strap for easy storage. Conversely at a little over twenty two inches with the strap folded in, it should fit in most toy boxes easily. Ours tends to get lost among the other toys.
Follow-up commentary
I tried gorilla glue and even drilling and "pinning" it with a bit of wire to add support in an attempt to fix it and I could not repair this toy. We even tried turning it around to use it, similar to a cane and it was too flimsy. I'm disappointed; it made its way to the trash.
