Completely out of "Synch"

This item *might* be worth the money if they bothered to go back for a complete redesign and bothered to do some functionality testing. They seemed to take the old engineer's idiom "a design is not complete until there is nothing left to take away" to the extreme and sacrificed functionality for simplicity. I would not recommend this toy to anyone wanting to use it themselves.

Use

It may make a cheap bachelorette gift if affordably priced. It is billed as a clit vibe, but it is poorly designed and nearly impossible to hold in place with any amount of lube on it. My husband tried it for scrotum stimulation while masturbating, and had the same problem. It is a little large for penetration. Even though the label says "multi-speed", all it consists of is a dial for hi/lo which I found disappointing. The LED's on the controler are very bright, and I couldn't help thinking of a strip club when it was on (take what you will from that).

Material / Texture

It is made of smooth plastic with a silicone-like substance on the vibe itself. There is no give to it at all, it is a solid piece. There was little to no odor. My first impressions upon taking it out of the package was that it was simplistically designed. It looks like a large Christmas light with a dimple in it. There is little to no way to keep it in place, no texture to use for either stimulation or positioning, and the vibrations (though powerful) were distracting more than stimulating. Even trying it on other body parts such as the nipples did little for me. It also can't be used in water, so no shower or bath play.

Design / Shape / Size

This is a very poorly designed toy. Once I started to try and use it, I found the overly smooth design difficult to hold on to without lube, and nearly impossible with it. The bulb is too hard not to use lubrication. It's billed as a clit vibe, but I personally found the vibrations harshly intense in that area, even without turning it up very high. My partner and I tried it various places with disappointing results. The vibe itself isn't recommended for penetration of any kind, and can't be used in or around water. It is of a discreet size which would fit in most make-up bags, and would be suitable for travel. If I had to suggest a user for it - I would say gag gift at the best.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The entire "bulb" vibrates very intensely. Mostly due to the set-in-stone vibration rythms pre-programmed into it, I did not enjoy this toy whatsoever. There is no way to select a single setting, you're stuck with the same three-pulse vibration with the only variation being an adjustable intensity. We both found this incredibly distracting more than stimulating, and when set on high, was far too harsh for my female bits. Not to mention, it gets loud on the high. The controls were simple, a wheel to rotate to "on" then adjust the intensity. It is not waterproof, not recommended for penetration of any kind.
    • Multiple settings
    • Not enough variety
    • Strong patterns

Care and Maintenance

As you're not supposed to submerge it in water, I would suggest wiping it down with a soapy washcloth to clean it. There was no warning on the package saying whether or not it could be used with silicone lube or other forms of personal lubrications. You will get it everywhere when attempting to use this toy though, as it's so hard to keep a hold of. It would be simple to store if I planned on keeping it; it's small enough to fit nearly anywhere.
    • Easy to store

Packaging

Plastic blister packaging with fairly idiot-proof battery setup. I wouldn't try using it for storage as it doesn't stay together too well after opening. It would be easy to wrap up and is small enough to tuck into a gift bag. There is little in the way of instructions on the package, though it does come with the "standard vibrator battery insertion guidebook". The wording on the back is a little misleading as far as touting the 'multi-speed' aspect, and the fact that the vibrations are automatically programmed in is in very small type.

    • Recyclable

Personal comments

I was grossly disappointed with this toy. It is very badly designed and just needs to go back to the drawing board for a re-do. The saddest part is there is a lot of potential there to make it a good toy, but it fails on every level. I honestly think most women would get better satisfaction with a simple stick vibe or a dildo than they would with this thing. I did not have the price available to me as we got this for a review before it is available for purchase, but if it costs more than $10, it's NOT WORTH IT.
    • Disappointing

Experience

We tried everything to have a little fun with this toy, but it just didn't cut it. It was too harsh for sensitive area stimulation, and was too distracting to try and masturbate with. It's a rare occasion when you get frustrated enough to put you out of the mood - but I was with this toy. If I could put "everything" in the cons section, I might.

    I ordered this vibrator because I loved the idea of having a bullet that would "surround" my clitoris, as opposed to just lay on top of it (which can be uncomfortable during sex). However, I found, like you, that its one mode, which feels like - - - ----- - - - is WAY too annoying and changing-up to be able to orgasm from. Such a disappointment, because the vibes themselves are deliciously strong, and the bullet feels great. Ah well...

    Hmm, was thinking about getting this one but since it only has a pulse function and no steady ones I think I may pass it up.

    Nice review! I love toys that are shaped like the bullet is. They should make more of them.
