Throbs and Moans. Or Whines?For a bullet, the Quiver offers many vibration patterns and a sleek, useful design. As an entry level bullet, users might try it to discover their preferences. It is a useful stepping stone.
The Quiver is also an easy-to-travel-with toy. It can detach from its controller to both fit a smaller space and eliminate the chance of it turning on during transit. It is not too loud, but background noise like a fan will ensure privacy. The controls are minimal and simple; they are welcoming for users new to toys. More experienced users may find this toy a bit dull since it has nothing new or exceptional to add when compared toys of its class. Still, this could be an option for those buying a few toys to experiment.
Toward the flared end there is a seam that goes around the bullet. It is not very smoothed out. It can be felt easily by fingers. The seam catches a bit if you run the bullet with a small amount of force against the palm. This could be an issue for some users, especially those who are more sensitive. Lubricant can ease insertion and possibly reduce the chance of irritation.
The dimensions specified on the product page are accurate. The controller is large enough to fit comfortably in most hands. The cord is long enough to be inserted and used unhindered in most situations. The bullet is small and not intimidating. In terms of discretion, the Quiver very much looks like a sex toy. In terms of sound, it is about 2.5 Bees. In some modes, it has a whining sound that can be distracting. Background noise can cancel this sound out. When traveling, you can unplug the bullet from the controller and throw it in a purse or bag. You can also put the toy in a sock to further hide it.
1. High standard vibration
2. Medium standard vibration
3. Low standard vibration
4. Accelerating coaster
5. Weak, low Pulses (whining sound strong)
6. Stronger pulses
7. Faster pulses
8. Medium strength pulses
9. More rumble pulses
10. Super weak pulses
Hold the button for a couple of seconds for the toy to turn off. The vibrations range from rumbling to buzzy depending on the mode you use. It has a top strength of a solid 3 vrooms, which is average to good for bullets this price and style. The Quiver is not advertised as waterproof, so it is best to keep the controller as dry as possible.
The Quiver takes 2 AAA batteries. Inserting the batteries has a learning curve. The battery cage can be removed. Once the batteries are in, replacing the cage can take a bit. Once you get it the first couple of times, it becomes easier. To prolong the life of the toy, remove the batteries when it is not in use.
Once dry, the Quiver can be stored with the rest of your toys. Plastic is very inert and doesn't react with other materials like silicones. It is best to keep the Quiver from direct contact with porous toys. It can cause cross contamination.
You can use the packaging as long term storage, but it is not intended for it.
It's okay. It is one of hundreds of bullets out there. There are no special characteristics that make me want to choose this bullet over another. It doesn't make it a bad toy, just one of the crowd. I would recommend the XOXO bullet over the Quiver, though. I think the XOXO has a better quality and feels more finished and thought out as a toy. The Quiver feels a bit unfinished and rushed in its construction.
The Quiver is not a bad purchase for someone wanting to try bullets or toys in general. I rather spend twenty dollars on a toy I try and end up not liking than a hundred on a high end toy I didn't like. So there is a place for the Quiver. I just don't think it is for the average user.
