The Not So Impressive Crop

This is a great looking crop... from a distance. Once you have it in your hand a lot of the attraction is lost. If I had it to do over again, I would not buy this crop. I found it terribly disappointing and for a few dollars more I could have purchased a crop that may not have looked as fancy, but would have had the same effect and would not have fallen apart during only the second use. I would not suggest putting money into this one unless you want it for aesthetics alone.

Use

Can be used for light BDSM play.

This would work for somebody who likes to occasionally add some light BDSM to their bedroom play but not somebody who likes hard play. Therefor it is most likely to appeal to beginners with BDSM than to those who are more advanced.

Design / Craftsmanship / Size / Material / Features

The design and shape of this crop really appealed to me; it looks beautiful even in person. There is a nice wrist strap attached at the end of the handle in case you need it. The material has only a light plastic odor, nothing offensive. It is made out of faux leather with a plasic neck and has a small soft plastic insert which provides the red for the heart.

Unfortunately, the craftsmanship is definitely lacking. It was a good idea just terribly executed. Though at first it looked well made, I soon discovered that the plastic neck of the Impressions Crop is really fairly flimsy (especially where it is bolted into the material of the handle and head). I also could not manage to get a heart impression out of it. No matter how determined I was, all I got was a red rectangular blotch. The handle dug into my palm a little when I gripped it firmly, the wrist strap was a uncomfortable as well and quite inconvenient when not in use.
    • Flimsy
    • Stylish

Performance

I would have to rate the performance on this one quite poorly. Though it gives quite a satisfying smack upon impact, it does not leave a heart impression as advertised and broke even before heavy play. Fortunately due to where the break in my crop occurred, I was able to continue using it sans handle.
    • Good for teasing
    • Stingy

Care and Maintenance

The Impressions Crop could easily be wiped down with a baby or toy wipe, even a damp cloth would work. It would last longest if hung up by the handle or kept in a flogger case. I would consider this to be a very low maintenance toy.
    • Easy to clean

Experience

The second time I used this crop I pulled the head back slightly, intending to let it go giving the recipient a light slap. Wishful thinking, considering that the handle snapped at the bolt. I am now left with an amazing looking crop.... until you realize it has no handle.

I am planning on trying to salvage this one, at least for a while, by wrapping a thin leather strip around the base of the neck where it split. This will create a new handle but shorten the length of the crop.
Follow-up commentary
I am still on the search for the perfect crop, but this was definitely NOT it. I want strength and stability in my partners, AND my crops, not one or the other. If you are just starting out, and into very light play, or are looking for something decorative, you may well be happy with this crop. However, if you serious about the impression you want to leave with your sub, you won't likely find what you are looking for here.
