According to the packaging, this toy is made of phthalate-free, body-safe ABS plastic, which has a material safety rating of 8. It has a smooth, super velvety coating. The feel of this one is much more velvety than the usual. With lubricant, it can still have a small amount of drag. It is great for those who enjoy drag to their toys, but make sure to use a thicker lubricant, especially for anal usage. The material is very rigid without any added texture.
This toy, like most made of plastic, has no discernible smell or taste.
This toy certainly has an interesting and unique shape. The curved end, or scoop, is about 2" tall and 1 1/2" wide, and measures 1/4" thick at the tip. The bulge on the shaft is about 2 1/2" from the end of the scoop when measured flat. The bulge makes insertion any deeper than this a little tricky, but it can be done, and the full insertable length of the scooped end is 5 1/2". When inserted, the scoop end can feel a lot like g-spot stimulation by fingers.
The bulged end measures 3" from the tip to the control panel. Insertion any further than 3" is not recommended. With that said, those new to anal toys can still manage to find stimulation from this small insertable end. Those more advanced in anal may find this to be too small or short. It is made of three bulges in graduating sizes. The bulged end also makes an excellent handle for when the scoop end is being used.
As long as this toy is tucked away in a toy pouch, it should be discreet enough for travel. The full length of it is 10", so it doesn't take up too much space.
This toy take 4 AAA batteries. When you unscrew the base, the battery compartment is attached to the bulged end which makes battery insertion and removal very easy. There is a thick rubber O-ring located within the battery compartment to help keep the water out.
This toy has a total of 6 functions, with 16 different combinations. The dual motors allow for each motor to be controlled independently. There are two buttons on the control panel, which is one for each end. The scooped end's functions are low, medium, and high speed settings. The bulged end's functions are pulsing, pulsing with longer pulses in between, and the last one is pulsations which escalate. It is interesting that the functions are split between the ends of the toy. Each press of the button will cycle you through the patterns until it switches back to off. The buttons are easy to press, but there is no quick-off function.
The vibrations are rather rumbly and deep. The toy is somewhat noisy. When turned on full power, it can be heard through covers, and may be heard through a closed door, but it's not the loudest thing out there.
ABS Plastic is incredibly easy to care for. After use, wipe this toy down with a toy wipe, a warm, soapy cloth, or wash it in the sink. The material comes clean incredibly easily. To disinfect, wipe down with a 10% alcohol solution, rinse, and let dry. Plastic is semi-porous, so it is best to disinfect prior to and after sharing. It is compatible with all types of lube, as well.
The Fusion Duality comes in a classic Evolved tin that can be used for storage purposes.
As with just about all Evolved products, this vibrator came packaged in a beautiful tin box. The vibrator is nestled in a piece of foam. While the box is gorgeous, it isn't discreet due to the clear window in the lid. It can be used for gift-giving in a discreet place, however.
No instructions, other than battery installation ones, were included.
