Dildolicious Ridges!A rush of ripply silicone goodness! The Echo has become one of my favorite harness dildos in short order. Another high quality, made in the USA, Tantus product! The Echo will always be close at hand in my toy box.
The Echo includes a vibrating bullet which slips into the base. The bullet is fairly cheaply made (not sure if it is a Tantus product or not) and includes a few watch batteries. I can't comment on the battery life, because I only turned it on long enough to see if it actually worked. While the vibrations of the bullet do not do much for me, the bullet cavity in the base of the dildo is suitable for use with a Tantus suction cup plug, which adds to the Echo's flexibility.
The Echo is very flexible without the vibrating bullet in the base. If you stand it on a table top, you can easily bend the Echo down in the direction of the curve so the tip hits the table while keeping the base flat. It bends almost as easily in the opposite direction. Without the bullet the bottom ridge is quite squishy, but from there up the dildo is fairly firm, but probably not quite as firm as the Tantus Hank.
If you find the shaft too flexible without the bullet but don't want the vibration, you can always insert the bullet and not turn it on. I find the bullet to be a little bit of a challenge to remove, especially if you shove it all the way in. It would be nice if Tantus would include a flexible silicone plug to fill the hole, for those who don't want to use the bullet and don't want the increased flexibility in the shaft when it is removed.
