Sportcuffs review

These would be bad cuffs for you if you want something that's going to beat up on you and really remind you it's there while you're wearing them, or with the class and sex-appeal of leather, but if you want something affordable, fully adjustable, and light enough that you could pretty much forget about it until you try to get up, this is your toy.
Published:
Pros:
Affordable, fully adjustable even for very small wrists, no pressure-points, light and easy to wear
Cons:
Bland, utilitarian appearance

extremely useful review
When it comes to wrist bondage, I have three problems: I have carpal tunnel syndrome, my girlfriend and I both have tiny wrists, and I can pop my thumbs so my hands are barely wider than my wrists. I have enough trouble finding a watch I can wear without pain. Cuffs? That's a real dilemma.

Metal cuffs are out, as is anything that might be too snug or hard, since they put me in a kind of pain I don't enjoy almost instantly. It also means that most buckled cuffs are a problem, since they're rarely adjustable to the perfect snugness I need.

After a long search, I decided to try the Sportcuffs|Sportcuffs.

Though one of the new cuffs was large enough to cuff both wrists together if I wanted to, the Velcro on the Sportcuffs runs the entire length of the neoprene, which means they are fully, perfectly adjustable, no matter how small your wrists (or ankles, or whatever you're bonding) are.

Since my girlfriend's wrists are even smaller than mine and we don't tend to play with others, I fit the cuffs to myself and then cut the extra length of neoprene. The Velcro seems well-fixed to the main portion of the cuff down the entire length, so I wasn't worried about it coming apart after being cut. There is also no gel or stuffing to worry about, making these- again- perfectly adjustable.

Now to the rings, because what good is a cuff if you can't attach it to something and then pull? The rings attached to the cuffs are like big keychain rings, which means they are detachable from their fabric loops if you're so inclined, or from the latch they come with, but they certainly won't come off accidentally. Due to the way they're attached, and the fact that neoprene is sturdier than simply fabric would be, tugging on the rings distributes the pressure well, so it doesn't create any nasty pressure-points even if you pull at an angle.

My only complaint about these cuffs is something I knew I was getting when I bought them: they're neoprene and bare Velcro, with one key-chain-style ring, very utilitarian. I love leather, I will admit, and I would love to have a fantastic set of black leather cuffs with D-rings all around. The Sportcuffs are not sexy cuffs (unless you're into sport and scuba-gear, which isn’t my particular fetish), but they're practical cuffs despite my particular needs, and in the long run I have to prefer something that is going to work rather than something that looks sexy hanging unused on the wall.

These would be bad cuffs for you if you want something that's going to beat up on you and really remind you it's there while you're wearing them, or with the class and sex-appeal of leather, but if you want something affordable, fully adjustable, and light enough that you could pretty much forget about it until you try to get up, this is your toy.

    Interesting... I'm curious to know if cutting the extra off ends up causing problems. These were the first handcuffs I ever got, years ago, and I hated the brand label so I took it off with a seam ripper. Bad idea- they fell apart (shared seams). Also, I haven't seen these personally, but they look like they might be adjustable enough for small wrists.

    Thanks- I'll check those out next time I'm looking for something new.  The problem I usually end up with when it comes to anything not Velcro-fastened is that even if it gets small enough, one setting will be too tight and the next one up will be too loose.  For a masochistic sub, I'm remarkably picky.

    As for your question- cutting the cuffs doesn't seem to have effected the stitching, and so far the Velcro isn't pulling up at all.   Since the cut end is on the inside, that edge of the Velcro doesn't get pulled directly away from the base, which probably helps.

    I'll submit a follow-up review after they've received some more hard use and let you know how well they last.

    I'd be interested in the follow up review as to the long term durability of the key-ring style ring.  I'm imagining it might uncoil, with time.

    For $20 you can't go wrong.

    Pria - I'm not sure we're the best couple for that kind of follow-up. Between the two of us we're maybe 230 pounds, and both of us have bad shoulders and wrists, so "heavy use" for us is not going to put as much of a beating on the ring as another couple might. So far we're having no trouble, but someone stronger might have a different experience over time.

    Great review! I've been looking for something adjustable enough for both me (tiny wrists) and my SO (large wrists) that's comfortable and won't break the bank, and this looks like a winner. Thanks!
