The plastic that this big boy is made of is nice and smooth, no ridges, nothing fancy, just a long smooth shaft. This means that he's non-porous, so feel free to share (just be sure to clean in between, or use a condom). Since he is made of a hard plastic, he is very rigid, not flexible in any way. He is also odor-free, always a bonus.
The Colt Prowler looks similar to a cop's nightstick, making him a very intimidating-looking toy. He's got a handle with a silver ring that separates the handle from the shaft. He is definitely a big boy, at almost 11 inches including the handle. Only 6 inches of him is insertable, however. He has a nice girth, with a diameter of 1-1/2 inches, and a circumference of 4-1/4 inches. He is definitely not discreet, unless your friends are used to you having nightsticks lying around your house. I would not recommend him for a beginner, as his size along with his strong vibrations can be a bit much.
The control for this fella is on the end of the handle. There's a convenient ribbed portion that can be turned to turn him on and off. The further you turn him, the more intense the vibrations get. The control can be a bit sensitive, especially when turning it from the off position. The vibrations seem to be located in the center of the shaft, traveling outward from there. Since he has quite intense vibrations, he's also a bit noisy, so I wouldn't recommend using him without turning on some music or television for a bit of noise to drown him out, along with your screams of pleasure. His vibrations are intense enough that I didn't even need to turn him all the way up to reach climax. He is also waterproof, so feel free to take him for a romp in the shower or bathtub!
Since this baby's made of plastic, he's very easy to care for. He can easily be washed with your favorite toy cleaner, or just soap and water. He's compatible with all types of lube, silicone, water, and oil based. I store him inside of my bedside table, along with my other toys, as he doesn't have any compatibility problems with other materials. He also takes 3 AAA batteries, which are easily inserted in the end of the handle.
