My Verdict

The BMS Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator, while simple and cute, claims to pack a massive punch. A classic lipstick-shaped bullet, this toy is portable and versatile, easily used all over, including in the bath thanks to its waterproof design. Sadly, this little vibrator and I didn't have any chemistry, I'm hesitant to give it my seal of approval. Still, as far as bullets go, I think it's good for the price for a sex toy staple.

Testing the Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator

My Personal Experiences with Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator

My Experience with Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator

My expectations for bullet vibrators tend to be pretty low. Being so small, it’s tough for them to boast much power, or at least that was my impression of them in the past. Looking at the BMS Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator’s reviews, I saw it was quoted as far exceeding the We-Vibe Tango (an acclaimed Holy Grail of bullet vibes) by one satisfied buyer in terms of the power it delivers. Now, I’ve never used the We-Vibe Tango (or its sequel), but given its reputation, that’s a big promise. I decided to give it a shot.

Wait… What?

Okay, my first impression of the Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator was… confusing. I got it home, cracked it open, and gave it a long charge. I loved its design (sleek, shiny, and cute) and, when I tested its charge on my hand, I was pleasantly surprised by the power and rumbliness of its vibrations. Having low sensitivity, the main thing I look for in my vibrators is intensity, which this bullet promises. Unfortunately, when using it for the first few times, something was off. I experimented with settings, degrees of pressure, locations, and angles, and for some reason, I couldn’t feel anything at all. I wondered if it made me go numb, but found that other toys worked like usual immediately after. I wasn’t overstimulated or losing sensation. I just couldn’t feel it. I don’t know what happened! To be clear, I don’t think this toy is bad quality, nor do I think it’s poorly designed. I don’t even doubt the rave reviews I saw online! By all accounts, this vibrator seems like it should pack a punch. It just so happened that it came with an unexpected incompatibility for me. Given the simplicity of a bullet, I’d wager that has more to do with my body’s preferences than a failing in its design, so take it with a grain of salt. Since this toy seems well-made, however, I’ll try to balance my personal experience with its possibilities.

How It Feels

First testing the BMS Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator, for some reason, it didn’t feel like anything at all. I used it before, after, and alongside, other toys, with lube, everything I could think of. I’m not sure why it didn’t work for me, but thankfully, I eventually managed a session where we sort of got along. I wish I could pinpoint what was changed, but for me, it may have just been luck. When it worked, it was nice! It has decent power and rumbly vibration and is very easy to maneuver. I don’t see it being a reliable toy for me, but I could imagine it being a good addition for someone who wants to add basic vibration into their routine.

Using the Silicone “Comfy Cuff”

I do have to give credit to the Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator for adding a removable silicone cuff to their design. Made of soft, squishy silicone, this little ring is very handy. It absorbs the vibrations during use to help prevent numb fingers. On top of that, it adds a nice grip to the toy that prevents slippage during play, which is especially handy for such a small vibrator. And, my favourite: because the cuff is removable, the user can slip a finger between the cuff and the bullet, making it easy to move around without needing to maintain grip strength during the session! How cool!

My take on the Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator’s design

Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator My take on the Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator’s design

The Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator has a classic design. It's the basic shape you'd expect from a bullet with the addition of a seamlessly matte metallic finish and a rose gold accent on its base. I picked the hot pink option, but it also comes in a lovely royal blue. Aesthetically, it'd fit nicely in any collection.

Despite my compatibility issues with the Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator, I'd say it's a fairly easy toy to use. As a bullet, it's versatile; you can apply it externally anywhere you want, and it doesn't have any tricky settings to navigate. It can be turned on by pressing either arrow button, which are also used to control the intensity. Just be careful not to click the "up" or "down" buttons too quickly! They need to be held down adjust the settings, which may be difficult for some, since it's impossible to climb the settings one at a time. All in all, on a technical level, this toy is quite easy to figure out, with the main hurdle for me being navigating personal preference.

Assessing the Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator’s Quality

Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator Assessing the Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator’s Quality

I have to admire the Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator's quality. Made out of body safe materials like ABS plastic and silicone, it has a nice finish and is pleasant to hold. Although it isn't silent, it's about medium-volume: quiet enough I can't hear it through a wall, even at its highest setting. It has no sharp edges, scratchy seams from casting, or other signs of poor manufacturing. In fact, even the soft silicone cuff, a material that is often the victim of an unpleasant sticky finish, is nice and squishy as well as smooth to the touch!

The Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator: Budget-Friendly or Overpriced?

Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator The Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator: Budget-Friendly or Overpriced?

I feel that the Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator is moderately price for what it is, coming in at slightly cheaper than its competitor, the We-Vibe Tango X. It comes with a travel bag, a charging cord, and an overall well-made product with reliable materials and a 1 year warranty. For me, the product isn't worth its pricetag, but I blame that on compatibility rather than quality. For the right person this could be a good beginner toy without the frustration of poor materials and sketchy manufacturers.

On paper, the Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator did what it promised: based on how it feels on my hand, it's a strong mini vibrator with 2 hours of use per recharge, submersible waterproof, and easy to clean. I can't deny that it seems to have intense vibrations, but unfortunately, they just didn't feel very good to me. I'm sorry, BMS! Your bullet and I just don't get along.

Assessing the Packaging of the Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator

I was charmed by the Swan Maximum Bullet Vibrator's packaging. The front is a nice berry pink with the toy front and centre, along with rose gold text that shines like the toy's bright accents. It even has a magnetic closure that allows the box to securely "click" into place when closed!

All of this toy's parts are 100% non-porous and body-safe, as well as submersible waterproof. Without a charging port or other openings, it's very easy to clean. Simply wash with water and gentle soap, then dry with a clean cloth or let air dry. Then you're free to click on its travel lock and pop it on your bedside table, into your purse, or wherever you might need it next!
