The controller is hard plastic, and the bullet is a standard bullet vibe with a thin coating of pink jelly over it. Although the packaging says 'rubber' it does seem to be a jelly-type, so anyone who is moving away from jelly toys overall will want to skip this one.
The little egg-shaped bullet is 2" long, and 1" in diameter. The controller will fit in a lady's palm easily. The Basix is easy-to-use and would be great for someone new to sex toys. Even though it is not discreet in design, the small size and light weight make it ideal for travel.
The 'wheel' controller is simple and easy to use and completely intuitive. The vibrations vary from slight to EXTREMELY INTENSE. The scroll wheel is a great way to easily switch from one level to the next without even opening an eye!
This rubber is fairly porous, which makes it hard to clean. DEFINITELY use a condom over this toy if you are sharing and also to prolong the life of the rubber/jelly coating.
The material is compatible with silicone or water-based lubes.
This toy gets a high 'bee' and 'vroom' rating because of the variable speed. It can also be quite quiet.
