Swiss Army Bullet

Veteran toy connoisseurs and doe-eyed newcomers to the sex toy scene alike will find something they like about this toy. It has an impressive variety of vibration patterns to choose from and an easy, mostly intuitive remote control. Single, taken, somewhere in between - this versatile toy will play nice with other toys in tandem.
A veritable Swiss army knife of the bullet vibration variety
Loud buzz at higher intensity patterns and a lack of an on/off switch can be frustrating at times
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


The Impulse bullet is an impressive little powerhouse for newbies and toy veterans alike. It features a small plastic bullet that will most certainly get the job done for your clitoris, but is petite enough to pinpoint sensitive areas such as nipples, as well as a little external tease on the anus (though I strongly recommend not using this for actual anal insertion).

Couples would easily be able to integrate this into their bedroom shenanigans with relatively little issue - it's small, unobtrusive, and easy to handle, though bigger fingers/hands may find it awkward to get a proper grip on the bullet part itself.

If you're flying solo, the Impulse would make a trusty go-to when you need it and pairs easily with other toys to keep the variety going.

Material / Texture

The material content is incredibly straight-forward and no-fuss. The bullet is a hard, nonporous plastic with no extraneous bells and whistles to get hung up on -- no crazy swirls, no dots, nada. There is no taste or smell, but as with all new toys, I'd recommend giving it a quick wash before the first use.

Design / Shape / Size

The design itself is standard for most bullets of this kind. The length of cord attaching the bullet to the remote makes it easy to kick back and let the vibrations work their delicious magic. As far as the bullet itself, I did find it somewhat uncomfortable at times to keep it in place without adjusting or holding it myself. When it's slippery, forget about keeping a solid grip on it, because it can and will go just wherever the hell it pleases.

However, if you're using this under clothes or tucked into panties, it generally stays where it needs to be, so the size is not unwieldy or intrusive. However, be prepared for questions as to why you have a light-up remote control in your pocket - the only caveat about this bullet is that the remote itself is a bit large and awkward to stash away if you want to engage in some public fun.

Functions / Performance / Controls

I was impressed with the variety of functions on this bullet before anything else. I tend to have high demands for bullet vibration pattern variety, and this thing delivered - and then some. There are five unique vibration/pulse patterns, most of which can be adjusted even further with a second intensity control from 1-10.

I found the escalating pattern to be the most enticing, as it quickly moves from 1-10 in intensity and then drops back down again. If you're a saucy type that likes to tease, consider this your latest weapon. The ten levels of intensity to choose from have a fairly impressive range. 1 is barely more than a slight rumble, whereas 10 is surprisingly strong. This makes the Impulse bullet a rare unicorn in the world of bullets, as it should appeal to a very wide range of needs in terms of intensity.

Unfortunately, one of the biggest cons I found with this toy is that it can get pretty loud at the upper levels. Because the motor is compacted into a tight space, too much outside pressure applied to the plastic case causes an annoying buzz that is damn near impossible to stop. Lower levels of intensity are fairly quiet, which would be perfect for discreet public play, but upper levels may cause concern as to how many cell phones you may be smuggling in your crotch.

I was also displeased that it does not have a general on/off button. In order to turn it on, you simply press the intensity button up to 1, but you cannot loop through the options. In order to get back down to one or to turn the toy off completely, you have to click all the way back down through the numbers.

The bullet itself seemed to do fine when used in water, but do not expose the battery pack to any kind of moisture. Bath-takers should be in the clear with due caution, but this isn't one to tag along in the shower.
    • Easy to use
    • Lots of variety in function
    • Powerful

Care and Maintenance

The only way cleaning this thing would be easier is if it magically cleaned itself. Since we don't live in a world of self-sanitizing sex toys (unfortunate!), a quick swipe of a little soap and water should be enough to keep the toy free of nasties. If you want to insert the toy vaginally, the cord is coated and will similarly wipe down very easily.

With hard plastic, any lube your precious heart desires will work just fine.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


This thing could be a prize in a cereal box with the way it was packaged. If your hopes are high for diamond-encrusted boxes with rainbows shooting out, you're about to get a sore reality check. The bullet is packaged in sealed plastic...and that's about it. For a $35.99 bullet, I would expect a box or at least hard plastic, but as packaging is not my greatest concern, I wouldn't really count this as a definite negative trait on the product itself.

Follow-up commentary
Though I do not use this bullet in my regular lineup, I've found it's fun for the occasional switch to something new. It works decently well for discreet play, especially in the commute to and from work in traffic!

I dislike that it's difficult to hold on to for more direct play and makes my fingers go numb, but it packs a lot of power for the price tag and I'm sure it would make a good sidekick to other toys if I used it more often. The buzzy noise is still annoying and still impossible to get rid of, but I think this is overall a fairly solid toy with potential for someone more inclined to bullets than myself.
