Vendor: Mister B
The Mister B Double Small Paddle
Yet again I review an impact toy with a very traditional shape much like last week’s Cushioned Paddle: The 16cm by 3,5cm grip turns into a long stretched octagonal head which measures 20cm by 7cm. This makes the size just right for fitting individual ass cheeks or thighs. A nice detail is the small Mister B logo lasered in the last quarter of the head. The design of the head however is unusual: It consists of a single layer of leather and a sowed and glued double layer of leather. The three layers are hold together at the handle by glue and three rivets. The last rivet holds a leather flap in placed containing a welded d-ring. This design raises one question: Is that really a paddle or a – non-traditional – slapper? This might be hairsplitting but when I buy a paddle I expect a single piece of (multiple layers of) leather.

The build quality is sturdy but isn’t as painstaking as I have seen with other toys. The leather layers are not completely in line and the glue between on the handle between the single- and double-layer is not evenly distributed. But this is just an aesthetic thing, the usability or effect of the toy isn’t compromised in any way.
Playing with it
This toy takes some practice and finesse to unfold the great potential it holds. When you hit with this paddle for the first time the two pieces will probably stick together. Due to the flexible leather the impact will create a stingy sensation. You will always create this effect when you hit with the single layer first. With some practice you can hit the sub with high intensity with the double layer first and then adding a little thuddy “afterthought” when the single layer hits the double layer. Especially experienced subs were a bit distracted when there as a second sensation after the first one. The slapping effect also occurs when you just lightly hit the skin. I found that very handy for warming up the skin before a longer spanking.
Detail of the D-Ring
If you want real thud, take advantage of the hard edges which with 1cm heights are rather wide. Especially on well padded body areas like the thighs or ass hitting with the paddle’s edge creates a nice, deep thud.
Of cause you can turn this toy into a traditional paddle but tying the two leather pieces together. The pain sensation of this modification is quite stingy with a bit of thud. You can make the sensation even more interesting depending on the material you use for tying: If you want a normal paddle, I recommend using strong and wide elastic bands you can get in any drugstore. For the all leather feel I recommend leather strings (either the soft or the hard ones) which will make the surface uneven. Depending on which side you use (just the strings or the one with the knots holding the two ends together) you get a little to a lot more sting and can create interesting patterns (Leather string macramé anyone?). The last option I have tried out were Velcro cable ties. Depending on the design (p.e. whether the just have a small rough and soft area or a rough area and the rest is all smooth) the sensation can vary widely.
Some have hard edges adding sting, other bottoms find the impact of the rough side harder to take, some find the sensation of the rough side lightly travelling over the bruised skin interesting.
Nice Detail: The Lasered Mister B Logo
Regardless of the hitting technique I would categorize the coloring of this toy medium. It creates a nice red color that doesn’t stay too long. Of cause, when you tie hard strings around the paddle they will create redder marks which will stay longer. I also have to say that the toy is very well balanced.
