Rocket Needs Refueling

The Rocket Bullet is capable of powerful vibrations on multiple settings, but is an unreliable product that turns off at random and is not as versatile as the ambitious packaging advertises it to be. Its inconsistency outweighs its very sporadic good performance.

Use

The Rocket Bullet came to me as a freebie, and I'm glad I didn't spend my money on it. While its performance is more than adequate when it's working, even if I'm not touching the controller, it tends to turn off by itself - what I suspect to be a wiring problem. I can't seem to find any discernible pattern to when it shuts off. It happens at apparently random times. It does offer nice vaginal stimulation, and when it is working, the Rocket Bullet is fairly powerful. It has seven different settings: a standard low, medium, and high, three pulsating settings, and an extra-high, although I found it hard to tell the difference between the two highs. I feel like with better functionality this would be a great toy, but having it cut out on you is just no fun, and I'm not sure I want to use it that often. I tried with multiple sets of batteries, and while it performs well when it works, because of all its issues, I find it to be a hassle that some people may not think is worth it, particularly couples. The vibrations are fairly loud even against skin, so it is also not very discreet - probably inadvisable for dorm or thin-wall living.

Material / Texture

The toy features ribbing that looks pronounced, but I did not notice at all while in use. The control is a very smooth, soft plastic, and the toy itself is smooth, hard plastic coated in metallic paint, and as such, it is completely rigid. I found that it did hold on to scents a bit, but this is well-managed by a good cleaning before and after use.
    • Light odor
    • Rigid

Design / Shape / Size

The Rocket Bullet tapers toward the base, which I found made it difficult to hold on to. This also means that this toy is completely inadvisable for anal use. Because of the difficulty in gripping it, it may also be hard to achieve the advertised insertable length.

Neither the design nor the packaging is discreet, and should not be left out in the open. I found the metallic design to be flashy and almost gaudy, and it completely clashes with the packaging which was also an embarrassment to even look at. It is advertised as being safe for anal use, but as I said, it is most definitely not.

Functions / Performance / Controls

The Rocket Bullet is advertised as being waterproof on the packaging, and it does include an insulation ring around both ends of the wiring and battery chamber, but because of the engineering problems mentioned previously, I feel like it wouldn't really be worth it to test out. The cord was shorter than I would have liked; I couldn't keep my hands where I wanted them while still keeping a grip on the control.

I don't find the pulsating settings to be very compelling. I prefer the continuous settings. Changing the speed appears to be one of the things that triggers the toy turning off, sometimes indefinitely until the batteries are removed, so I really think that this toy is just poorly wired or constructed. The buttons are fairly close together, but as mentioned, even when I'm not touching it at all, the control has a mind of its own.

When it is working, the vibrations traveled fairly well up the length of the toy, but the tapered design may make it more difficult to feel in some cases. If it's not turning off and on erratically, the toy performs pretty consistently. None of the settings are described anywhere, and the settings button is just labeled with the number seven, so I had to try all of them myself to find out what they were. If you can get it to work, the Rocket Bullet is capable of being a powerful toy.

Care and Maintenance

The packaging is fairly bulky. If you are going to keep the Rocket Bullet long term, I wouldn't advise wasting space by keeping it in the box. Because it has not been very useful to me, I just keep it in a drawer in the original packaging. Even this was an adventure, as the awkward size of the box made it too big to fit in my bedside table drawer. If I do feel like using it (not often), I clean it before and after each use, which seems to keep its tendency to hold on to scents under control. The grooves make the Rocket Bullet a potential magnet for dust and lint, so I definitely recommend storing it in some kind of container. I also suggest that the ribbing's grooves get special attention when cleaning just to be sure nothing is left behind after use.

    • Easy to clean

Packaging

The front and back of the box are purple and orange with a direct window onto the toy and control. It's decorated with high praise filled with typos and "quality guarantee" endorsement logos. Both sides are black and blue with a picture of the toy - complete with a stylized jet fuel stream to reinforce the whole "rocket" theme, I suppose. I did not find it very tasteful, as you can even see the reflection of the photographer in the image of the toy on the packaging. There is no branding on the box at all, even though the control features a logo. Ignoring the aesthetic issues of the packaging, my biggest problem with it is that it is advertised as "Discreet item brings you strong simulation both for vagina and anus." No, no, no, NO, a thousand times NO! This toy tapers in circumference pretty dramatically, and it is definitely not designed for anal use. The only instructions included with the Rocket Bullet were how to install the batteries, and it said nothing about the actual types of settings. On the bottom of the box is an advisory note saying to clean it before and after, and to keep the wire and control dry while cleaning. It's good advice in the worst possible place to put it. The box may be too large for small drawers, which is something to keep in mind if you prefer to keep original packaging, but the thin, glossy cardboard is recyclable.

Personal comments

This toy has some great potential that could probably be reached with better construction. I'm kind of disappointed that it's so poorly made because when it works, it works really well.

Experience

My partner and I both expressed amusement about using this toy because of the odd, futuristic design makes it sort of a novelty, but considering all the difficulties I had just using it solo, I don't think I'd ever seriously consider using it with someone else.
