I researched this paddle quite a bit and the feedback was that it is hard to handle and takes practice. That was not the case for my wife, as she had instant success wielding the Snap Strap on my bare bottom. It has a definitive sting to it, and a satisfying sound. A little lighter than the Pelt or Wham Bam as far impact, makes up for it with sharp sting.
A new favorite paddle for my wife and I.
This strap is a wonderful alternative to a belt or a dragon tail and has an amazing sting. It can be one of the nicest or the meanest toys to use, and it leaves beautiful marks! It definitely took me a little practice with aim on a pillow before I felt comfortable using this on my partner, but it's certainly worth the time. It's a very versatile toy!
I own a Snap Strap, Wham Bam, Pelt, and an Acute dildo. Wow is how I think about all of them. The Snap and Wham take a little practice to get the stroke to land just right, but then - oh baby. The Pelt is so handy, I carry it concealed and use it as a surprise. The Acute gets high marks too, from a variety of partners.
Snap strap was a little more difficult to get a proper rhythm with. It's wobbly (I refuse to say "flimsy" because It's anything but. It's thinner and more floppy than most implements I've used, but once you get the technique and rhythm, man, does it sing. The sound it makes is ultra satisfying, and the mark it leaves is most pleasing to the eye. Not for the faint of heart though it has some SERIOUS sting.
