The Scout is comprised of 3 parts. A plastic cap, a shell that holds the rechargeable bullet, control panel and air pressure release and a sleeve.
The shell of the Scout is comprised of abs plastic and silicone. The inner sleeve that stimulates the penis is made of TPR, thermoplastic rubber. Many male masturbators are made of TPR or some type of porous material. The more porous usually means more softer material. The popular Fleshlite is made of a very porous material, Superskin. Which is patented by Fleshlite.
The sleeve itself has a lot of nubs and paddles sticking out. This is to pleasure your manhood, either manually or using the vibe patterns.

Other side of the sleeve. Notice the nubs on top of sleeve. Those will stimulate the head of your penis.
TPR has a safety material rating of 7 (of 10). Whereas Superskin has a rating of 5. Here you can find more info on safety materials.
The sleeve does have that distinctiveTPR smell. However you would only smell it if put the sleeve up to your nose.
That being said, the sleeve in this Scout is not as soft as my Fleshlite.
So this is shaped like a bowling pin. Yes a bowling pin. As you can see one end is cyclical and easy to grasp. I guess if I left it out in the open and next to actual bowling pin, it will not be conscious.

The sleeve has many many nubs and ribs. It will accommodate only 4 inches of your manhood however. That should be enough since most the feeling is felt in one's head and glands anyway. The section above shows 2 closeup pics of the inner workings of the sleeve. This 4 inches is similar to the Fun Factory Cobra Libre. That also only engulfs the head of one's penis. The Scout will stimulate 360 degrees of the penis head, whereas the Cobra mostly works on just part of the penis.
The sleeve can hold a skinnier penis or one up to 2 1/8 inches wide. The EF Little Eddie, 1 inch in diameter was still held in securely/tight. The Doc Johnson (2 " wide) also fit in nicely.

No problem taking DJ (2 inches wide)
The Scout is light and also easy to maneuver and hold, unlike some other masturbators that have a lot of girth.
The control panel is on the narrow end of the bowling pin which I will call the handle. A very unique ability of the Scout is one can change each and every pattern by engaging a "lock" button.
There are 3 soft touch click buttons on the handle.
1)Power on/off: when depressed a red light will appear. When powered off it will resume on the same pattern.
2)Vibration change: each depression will proceed to the 12 different patterns.
3)Air Lock : By squeezing the right and left sides of the handle the vibration power will increase substantially. If you depress the lock button it will maintain the same force. The red light will turn blue. To go back to the normal pattern just depress the lock button. The light then will return to red.
If this is too complex or I didn't explain well enough, please watch the video.
ON the end of the handle is the charging port for the USB charging pin. Also by the port is a stainless steel air release port.

This is waterproof. Has 12 patterns starting with steady then 11 more patterns of varying combinations: stuttering,buzzing spurts, rumbling,thumping, and strong shocking.
A charge will last almost 2 full hours with no drop off in power.
This will not bring a flaccid penis to erection.
TPR requires a little more care. Here are some quotes for the EF sex toy guide page:
Storage: Sex toys made of these materials can react with each other so we recommend to store them in separate plastic bags or pouches. Always keep jelly like toys away from direct sunlight and heat - they can melt.
Cleaning:Sex toys that are made of PVC or elastomers are porous and can trap dirt and bacteria. They cannot be sterilized so always spend extra time cleaning them. Use antibacterial toy cleaner and warm, not hot, water.
I like to use EF's Cleene (toy cleaner) for TPR materials. Quick and easy. On my page you can find a review of this product.
As far as lubricant. It will work better if one uses some. I would recommend using a water based one. For the simple reason it is easier to clean. It's hard enough dealing with porous materials, so why make it harder to clean.
To clean the sleeve. Just twist the cap and pull out the sleeve. When it is dry put it back on and also the cap. The sleeve is secured on to the shell by plastic tabs. Be sure to match the largest tab with the largest slot of the sleeve.
Scout came in a simple cello bag with the USB charging cord. I received one of the first shipments before instructions were included. After playing around with it, I learned how to use this innovative toy.
Anytime you don't know how to use a toy purchased from EF, just contact them. Or send in a ticket or pm to the review administrator. I notified the Community Mgr/Review Coordinator that no instructions were included and she emailed a screen shot of them.
Scout? What a unusual name for a male sex toy. I think it got its name from the days when a" scout" would go ahead of the main force. The Scout would be like foreplay before the main course. INTERCOURSE !
Read the review to find out why I think this is why it was named the Scout.
While OW was playing with her newly aquired Air Flirt (a clit sucking rabbit) I got out my new penis toy. I first tried it with no lube and then learned it was better with some. I went through all the patterns twice and settled on #12, low steady beats, then escalating thumping followed by very strong spurts.
Every now and then I would pull the Scout back and forth like a regular masturbator. This felt good also. Doing this caused some of lube to wear off of course.
I squeezed the ends of the handle to increase the sensation and depressed the lock button. It got 5 times louder and about 7 times stronger. OW complained it was too loud, so I turned the lock function off. It still performed fine.
My favorite way to use it was by propping a pillow under it so it became hands free.
After about 35 mins of play I almost orgasmed. Whenever the patterns gave very strong thumping spurts I would get the urge to ejaculate. Every time the cycle of pattern # 11 was intense thumping I would over and over get the urge to cum.
This in itself for good. I enjoyed this teasing for about 30 more mins and had enough. I was glad my member wasn't sore. I didn't cum and OW told me,"Now honey, I'll take care of you." And she did. Lucky me!!
