This Ballistic Metal paddle arrived just in time as a review sample from Uberkinky to be taken with me to Folsom Europe. Being a little bit like the Duracell Bunny on play at such events I was lucky to get enough play experience with it to write the review rather quickly because there were quite a lot reader questions for painful Spanking and Caning toys recently.
The grip of this toy is made out of two tapered brushed aluminum plates. The shape makes for a secure comfortable grip while the material is light enough not to tire the wrist yet heavy enough for a good balance and counter weight when paddling. Two screws are keeping both plates together. Between those two the impact material is fettered. It is made out of 5mm thick flexible black rubber like material with hard edges. One side is somewhat smooth like very fine sand paper while the other side has a chevron texture with 1mm deep grooves. The viper’s “tongue” is triangular starting width of 4.5cm and converging to a tip over a length of 27cm. Like snake’s tongue it is split in the middle.
Sadly like the other Ballistic Metal toys I own there is no way a loop could be attached securely so you have to store the toy lying.
Playing with the Toy
This toy is not for the faint of heart! With a light tapping the sensation is not too intense yet an experience player will get to notion what this toy has in store. Put a little more force into it and you will quickly produce some intense sting sensation. Unlike other Spanking and Caning implements the Ballistic Metal Viper Paddle can create serious pain with little force. Most pain pigs I have used this paddle on could not stand a full set of full blows. This is due to the split tongue which dramatically reduces air resistance. Due to these properties this toy is not made for warm-up.
With that being said the paddle is extremely good for intense pain scenes or mind fuck. Once a sub is accustomed to this toy just let the rough chevron side travel lightly over the body and he will tense up with anticipation. The two sides also come in handy when you want to increase the intensity of a scene quickly. I drove a sub close to the edge with the smooth side and when he asked for more finished him up with the rough side. The abrasive friction of it adds a new quality and intensity to the sting. An even sharper sting can be created when you just flick the tips against the body. I have used the Ballistic Metal Viper Paddle in flogging scenes to add intense sting or in tit torture sessions for excruciating reactions. Due to the sharpness of the material I would not recommend hitting body areas with thin skin like the glans. From a more sensual point of view run the smooth cool grip over the hot and reddened body areas in the cool down periods.
Speaking of reddening: The Ballistic Metal Viper Paddle colors fairly quickly. Especially the rough side will leave some quickly fainting chevron marks if you really put some power into the blow. Despite the hard edges and abrasive surface even in intense scenes this toy has not drawn blood or caused bruises.
Being made out of synthetic materials cleaning this toy is very easy. Simply spray it with sanitizer and wipe it off. Due to the tongue being made out of rubber I would recommend keeping it away from oil and fat. Finally a piece of practical advice: The kinetic energy from the tongue’s impact naturally get transferred into the grip and thus onto the screws which can get loose. So after an intense scene check them and if necessary retighten them.
