Awesome Replacement Sleeves

These bullet sleeves are a cheap and economical way to add sleeves to your bullets. In addition to being additional sleeves, they're also great replacement sleeves. If you have a bullet that needs covering, you should invest in some of these.

extremely useful review
My favorite corded bullet belongs to the bullets galore kit and came with a little jelly sleeve. Well, at some point that sleeve was going to need replacing, and these seemed like they'd fit the bill nicely.

They come individually packaged in their own little bags inside of another bag inside of a clamshell container. The container isn't overly huge and manages to hold just the three bullet sleeves inside nicely. The individual bags keep the sleeves from bumping uglies with each other and prevents any possible deterioration that may happen from touching each other. Now, they are labeled as silicone, so theoretically there shouldn't be anything detrimental, but better safe than sorry.

This kit comes with three different textured sleeves. Each sleeve is about 1 1/2" long, but is super stretchy. They all fit easily around the smallest bullet in that bullets galore kit (1 3/4" long and 2 1/2" around), but I wouldn't try to get it on anything much bigger than that. Sure, they'll probably fit, but they probably won't go all the way down to the base of the bullet. If you don't need your covers to do that, then you shouldn't have a problem. These are supposed to be super stretchy, and they are. They'll last you a while, although they are meant to be replaced. However with the price for 3 of them together, you're getting a great deal.

There are three individual sleeves with two unique textures. A clear sleeve and a pink sleeve both feature a spiked texture. The spikes don't come out very much but are nice to feel all the same. They can tickle if you want them to, or they can just provide a nice barrier between your bullet and your skin. The purple sleeve is ribbed. The ribs aren't very prominent, and can't really be felt unless you're concentrating on feeling them, but the sleeve still feels nice all the same. All of the sleeves definitely have a drag to them, and if you're wanting to be able to move them around, a little bit of lube will do the trick. Surprisingly enough, they're not horrible lint magnets. Right out of the package they do pick up lint and dust and fuzz and stuff, but it's not that bad, especially after frequent use.

None of the sleeves had a noticeable scent to them right out of the package, but after prolonged use they can start to pick up the scents of lubes/cleaners/etc. To clean them, you can just wash them in warm soapy water. They can be a pain to get on/off, so you might want to make sure they're on something waterproof or be very careful. You could use a toy cleaner as well. Since they're such a pain to remove, you might want to keep them right on your bullet, although you could tuck them back into their packaging too. As for lubes, since these are silicone and I can't be sure just how pure the silicone is, you should stick with waterbased lubes. However, since these are meant to be replaced every so often (when they break, discolor, don't seem right anymore, etc) you can do a spot check first and see if it does any lasting damage to yours.
Experience
I love these. They're cheap, easy to use/figure out, and don't dampen the vibrations on the bullets I've used them with. And when I break or use up the last one, I'll be buying another set. I bought this set months ago, and just lost my first one. I'm not sure how, it was fine when we tossed the toy back in the drawer, but then when I pulled it out again, blammo! This!



Either way, I do still highly recommend these. I can't be sure if it was something that happened to it in the drawer, or if it broke down due to contact with silicone lube. But the first sleeve still lasted me a few months of fairly regular usage, so I really don't care either way. 6-9 months of sleeves for $6.99? I'm ok with that. If you have a bullet that needs covering, get yourself some of these!
